How to make sure testers don't see old cached version?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Mon Jun 15, 2015 12:36 pm

I frequently update my game and upload the latest version to my web server. When I ask people to playtest the game they usually get an old cashed version instead of the latest. Is there any way to prevent this, as clearing the browser cache every time becomes tiring and doesn't always work well.

Any way to force the browser to reload all, after an new export is uploaded?

Delete the offline.appcache and dont reupload it. That will force the user to load all the files each time.
