How do I upload to Kongregate?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Thu Oct 25, 2012 2:40 am

I've exported my game using the Kongregate option. I'm going through the Kongregate upload page and it asked for the game file, but none of them work. It wants a flash or unity file, but I've tried all the files generated by the exporter.

Here, I found a tutorial for you:
http://www.scirra.com/tutorials/79/uploading-html5-games-to-kongregate/page-1
But keep in mind, that kongregate is mainly flash or unity, but it does support JavaScript to some extent. According to the tutorial all non flash/unity submissions have to be approved by the team.

I'm not sure how high-a-quality your game is, but I don't recommend uploading 'test' games.

Hmmm, this is way too complicated and seems out of date, since it suggests exporting your file as an HTML5 file rather than the in-built Kongregate option. I would assume you'd need to use the Kongregate option to upload to Kongregate, so there needs to be a new tutorial or something.

Followed it anyway, got absolutely nowhere. The links don't point to the right places and I couldn't even get the correct files downloaded. I think I'll wait an update or three until this is simplified or a working tutorial appears.

@farflamex

It works perfectly for me. I didn't submit it though as I have no finished projects at the moment. If this is complicated I suggest switching to another platform.

If you want me to rewrite the tutorial for you, I can if you want.lonehangman2012-10-26 09:15:50

I love Construct so I won't switch platform just to use Kongregate. It's not exactly a big issue right now, just something I'd like to look into.

I do use computers a lot and I've programmed in dozens of languages - I only use Construct now because it's such a joy to use and makes programming fun. Point I'm making is, I'm very computer-savvy, so I don't think this is just a case of me being dumb. Maybe though :p

The main problems I had with the tutorial were, first it said to export as a html5 project, which seems strange considering theres a specific Kongregate option in C2 now. And secondly, the links didn't seem to link correctly or it wasn't clear what I was looking for.

I'd appreciate an updated tutorial but I don't expect you to go out of your way. I get a feeling that something has changed since you wrote it, which may be why it didn't work.

Hi farflamex,

You just need to export to Kongregate.

If you decide to use dropbox, you have to create a Public folder.

Here there is a video that I hope will help:
