Never mind, seems the JavaScripts didn't minify (I must be missing something). Disabling the Minify option on export from C2 solved it. Uploading the new version now...

Have you tried it in Chrome? If it's not working in Firefox and IE, one issue we saw this week was a game with foreign symbols in the image filenames, which caused a loading issue.


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

Greetings from development hell, where my ninja game shows black screen whenever i try to host it on dropbox.
While the competition is over (sadly, i can't get the game to work), i'd like to ask you guys for some advice.
Has anyone ever tried hosting their game on Dropbox? Did it work?
Have you ever gotten a black/white/grey screen when trying to test it on a website (yet the game works well in preview)? Any tips? I really wanted to upload it, even if i am too late for receiving any prizes...

Hi Stilvais,

Dropbox had a few issues about a month or so back, when it changed some of its security settings (and links changed from Dropbox.com to dropboxusercontent.com) which caused problems with some games, though I'm unsure why you need Dropbox to host your game, when you can just upload the game to the Newgrounds site and it will be hosted there.

Sometimes you might also find that games perform differently in different browsers; Internet explorer seems to be the most problematic for my own game, and occasionally leads to heroes walking straight off the board and into the sunset!
Fortunately there's lots of useful advice in the scirra forum, so type your problems into their search box and I'm sure you'll find something to help you.

Good luck in finishing your game; there's always another competition just round the corner.

Well, does Newgrounds allow uploading of content, that is unfinished, still being developed: e.g. is it possible set content to private, so others cannot view it?
I am asking this, because i wanted to test, if the game was working outside of preview, but it was in an early alpha state, at best... Either way, i scrapped the project, seeing as other people would get only a grey screen (perhaps it was the fault of Dropbox after all!) when trying to launch the game, it lacked polish.
Thank you for your kind words, i will really try to create quality content for competitions to come (because of that sweet, sweet license :D), have a nice day/evening.

Yeah you can upload your HTML5 zip and do "preview" and it will hosted on NG and only be visible to you (and your collaborators). Pretty useful.

You can also use a github page to host a test version of the game, which is what I did. Useful for sharing, which you can't do with NG's preview.

Actually you CAN share your previews - on the preview page there is a dropdown box where you can choose to share with project members, or registered NG users, or the general public. You can also add individual beta testers to your project!
