Hi, how does it work? I followed the tutorials but the link to my .html just redirects me to the site where it offers me to download the .html file~ Anyone has a proper tutorial on how to do it?

If you installed dropbox, and have it running, you will have a dropbox folder in your user profile folder in windows. (in windows 8 it shows up under favorites)

In here should be a public folder.

Copy your entire game folder into the public folder.

Enter the game folder in your dropbox folder, right click the index.html file, and select "copy public link"

This public link can be used to play your game from a browser.

Is this also possible when not having dropbox on the computer but only the online version?

I have not used that, but I would recon the idea is the same. Upload it to your public dropbox folder, and acquire the public link for the index.html file.

I think you copied the wrong link.

In the list of folders in your dropbox account, should be a folder with a little globe, indicating web serving. Your game needs to be inside this folder.`

Can you find the "share dropbox link" links ?

In the list of options they have the little blue box in front of them ...

If you cant find it, I suggest you google for you it.
