  • Hi,

    Can someone enlighten me on the following ?

    When I export as HTML 5 and try to play locally in Chrome I get a black screen which is expected. But... :

    When I export as HTML 5 and try to play locally in Firefox I get a error message/popup saying I cant play locally but after 1 or 2 seconds my game loads after all.

    I found another thread on this issue that says firefox does not prohibit the use of offline cookies and thus plays offline. But I fail to see what that would change when using file://.

    Is this a security issue on Firefox 26.0? Or is it just more lenient compared to Chrome? Basically I am concerned about security risks.

    I thought it would be best to ask in an existing thread to avoid yet another thread about this issue. If this is frowned upon, tell me! :)

  • I have the black screen now too. It's NOT a closed bug. It's still there. Project uploaded to website and still getting black screens.

  • If this is caused by a bug then it definitely is not closed yet.

    I hosted my export on an external server (awardspace) and i get a black screen both on Chrome and Firefox.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Please help!

    EDIT:

    Figured out that images aren't being loaded.

    Trying to open up those images gives me a Awardspace (my host) error page... So I'm guessing that they don't allow hotlinking to content in other folders. I have also confirmed that .txt files work fine but .png files don't.

    With Dropbox and Google Drive out the window (they removed hotlinking for htmls and such), have you guys got any tips on how to fix this?

    Where can I host my game allowing for external images to be loaded?

    EDIT:

    Following a recomendation on this forum: https://www.bitballoon.com/ hosts everything without a hassle.

    Thank you guys! <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile">
