Sorry , but I'm a bit confused .

* Should I delete the main files in \data\content before copying my own files ?
* Where should I add that <HTML> ? At the end of the index.html or at the start of it ?
* Which files should i copy to \data\content ? Should I export my project to HTML first ? Or should I export the project for Scirra ?!

I was wondering if you could answer these questions , and explain more about this thing .

Thanks in advance .

1. No !

2. You should add that <HTML> at the start of index.html

3. You should Export as a HTML5 web site and copy to \data\content !!

Thanks !!!

Hello mahdisml!
I tried to do what you explain in one of my games, but when I run the game from the app.exe the sound doesn't work.
Do you know what's wrong?

Greeting folks, the AppJS project is now discontinued. But there's a fork from the project.
