We're experiencing a problem with the read-only database servers lagging behind, so you may experience weird data issues today. For example if you publish a project, it may not exist for a while until the servers catch up. Sorry for the mess!

This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

That explained why the project is missing from the page. I can wait until everything is in place. Good luck, tom!

I was just going on this website awhile ago and there was this message saying that there was some error in the server and it would take awhile for it to be fixed as the website wasn't working. All I had to do was log in and it was immediately taken care of.

I don't know what that was all about, but thank you, Tom, and all the people working on your staff who fixed that, whatever it was!

So that's why NG is a little slow right now for uploading things.

I've actually been experiencing browser crashes every now and then.
I'm assuming its my browser though, because it doesn't happen on my other ones.

Firefox, you used to be cool.

Why not just go to command prompt and type: format C:\

there, done! Now you have an empty hard drive!

Yea... For the longest time NG was convinced that my Roguelike was an Action - Beat Em' Up...

Also, the API was outright refusing to work for a day or so on some files... Then it started working perfectly fine :/


Good.

Yeah I was having trouble with the NG Shop as well. The last page for shipping takes me to a blank screen (and has for the past few days), and now the first page gives me a non-secure warning. Tried doing it in both safari and chrome, so I guess thats not on my end.

Ugh, i still have to rename my project (and another one taking up the name I want that I created when I thought my project was broken) and upload a new SWF of my game. I hope it'll work in time for the Stencyl Jam, because I worked really hard on this game.

Oh okay......
So many people came onto the audio forums last night complaining about the preview page... I know the project system is a little buggy but not THAT buggy.
What's weird though, is it hasn't been buggy for me at all (O~o)

The NG store 3/3 bug is a known issue... i can never replicate it 100%, i used to think it was particular items in the store but some people get through just fine... on the subject of bugs. you also will hit a bug if you have a purchase that can be entirely covered by store credit. Dunno when thats getting fixed but I think Rob is aware of it.

can you please do something about the way audio is ranked because i feel like people arent taking the audio portal as seriously as they used too, now half the music is just spam and its preventing people who actually try from getting the feedback they deserve. It should be more like the flash portal which is much more organized.

For some reason, seeing this post reminds me of something I've been wondering about for some time. Waaaaaay back when, I remember reading a feature that said that when the NG Chat was done, it could also be used as a multiplayer server (Pico's Roulette was the example I think). Now that the chat is out (sort of), what ever happened to that?

That was the Goldfish chat - what you see on the site now is the chat Rob threw together for April Fools.

I'll give it a grace period considering the issues, although if you upload your game now it should work!
