Scirra Arcade is broken

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sun Sep 14, 2014 6:13 pm

I can't upload my game to the Arcade. It loads up to Scirra just fine, and it gives me the message:
"Your upload was 9.32mb. Because only one set of audio files is needed it will be around 9.32mb in size to the player."
And that's fine, because doing something about is optional (and I can't find the duplicate audio file). I checked the "I've read stuff" box, I've written something in each text box and choosed a category. I press submit. The page reloads, with all my inputs still there. The page didn't display any red text errors, like "you didn't do this or that before submitting". I press again. And again. It does nothing, I look at my page, there's no game. Here's the file:

You say in this post - https://www.scirra.com/forum/action-gamemaster-the-ultimate-game-challenge_p834920?#p834920 - that you found a way to make the upload
have less weight
.

Is this anything to do with why you can't upload?

Have you tested an upload using one of the built-in examples? Did it work?

If it doesn't work with the built-in examples, try to attract Tom's attention, but from a look at the arcade, it appears many others are able to upload, so it may be a problem with your game.zip.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

I literally deleted a 3.5 mb song that I wanted to use but didn't in the end.

I'll try uploading an example now, thanks.

@Tom


Argh, same problem with the Demo Shooter game. This time I just edited a little of the graphics and that's it. There's this error again, though: "Your upload was 5.80mb. Because only one set of audio files is needed it will be around 3.59mb in size to the player."

Doesn't make sense?!

Last ideas - have you tried not using minify and png recompression when exporting? We know minify can be problematic sometimes.

If it still doesn't work then Tom is your best bet.

I never use minify script, and I don't change any export options anywhere, except sometimes the name of the folder. @Ashley
