Hi, I am trying to upload a game and I keep getting this error,

You zip archive is missing a required file. Must include at least 1 .capx

When I export my game a .capx file doesn't seem to be made so when I try to upload it, it cant find it.
Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

Thank you.

Are you using the latest version (r212.2)?
Are you using the 'Export to Scirra arcade' option?
If yes, then maybe tagging Tom in Website Issues might be an idea.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Yes I am using the latest version and I am also exporting to Scirra arcade, also I uninstalled and re downloaded the latest version just in case it was something to do with that.

Are you exporting directly to the arcade threw the program? I had a problem with that on PWE and ended up logging into the arcade threw the website and submitting it like that.

No, im exporting to my desktop and then trying to upload it from the website but I don't think a .capx was exported to the desktop.

Moved to Website Issues.

You seem to be confusing the Scirra Store and the Scirra Arcade. If you want to upload your work to the Scirra Store as a game with source you should have a seller account and upload the .capx file (in other words - don't export it at all!). If you want to upload your game to the Scirra Arcade, choose the Scirra Arcade export option and upload it to the Arcade.
