ipage hosting problem?

  • Hi, I bought a hosting plan to ipage.com and uploaded my first html5 game there using construct 2. But the game doesn't shows up. There's only a black screen. Anyone also got a problem like this to your hosting?

    Thanks!

  • Have you configured your site for the correct mime types? I believe there is either a section in the manual or a tutorial on hosting your game on your own site...

  • The mime types were mainly for getting sound to work, but black screen usually means it stopped with a java error. Probably not recognizing the filetype.

    Do you have a "webconfig" file in your root directory?

    here is a clip of the start of mine, it has a bunch of other junk in it you wouldn't need.

    <configuration>

        <system.webServer>

            <staticContent>

                <mimeMap fileExtension=".ogg" mimeType="audio/ogg" />

           ??<mimeMap fileExtension=".m4a" mimeType="audio/mp4" />

            </staticContent>

    If you don't have access to one, ask your provider about adding a couple mime types, they may have to do it for you.

    Here is a tutorial page:

    edit:

    you might go ahead and stick:

    <mimeMap fileExtension=".webapp" mimeType="application/x-web-app-manifest+json" />

    under the audio types, if you ever submit to Firefox marketplace, it needs that one.
