I submitted one of my game and get this error:

ERROR - The file you're attempting to upload is identical to one that's already been submitted. (ID: 609858)

How to fix it?

If you make a minor change to the flash you should be able to re-upload it.

The Flash ID is 609858, so it's still on NG. However you decided to delete it, but it's not completely removed until a certain amount of time has passed, just in case you want to recover it.

In your case, you want to make a correction to that file. Undelete your old file (should be in a box in the Project Manager). In the file's Publication Details, upload the corrected version instead.

If you don't mind, could you upload it to newgrounds.com/dump ? I doubt that 609858 (shovelware game) is related to what you were planning to upload but it helps to see what it is you are trying to upload.

Interesting, same game and name as the removed game.

Is this account related to you at all? Asking as this is the account the game was removed from (by the author themself).

Well I don't know who is that guy. Because yesterday I asked my developer to try upload the game. Not sure if he uses that account or not. But for me this is really weird that game isn't working in preview but on dump it's fine. Can you please ask newgrounds team to check in my projects and fix it? I shall be very thankful to you.

Given the account that tried to upload that may have been a sponsor of yours, they felt it was alright to upload the game instead of allowing the actual author (you) to upload it. Due to that, you're unable to upload the game for now. My best suggestion for now would be modifying the game so it's not exactly the same for now.
