Hi. I have a ready game for KG and I would like to know something more about hosting services. As I understand many uses dropbox, but does dropbox free account is good? I saw there are 20gb daily maximum and if You hit more than that, then they just shut it off. Will 20 gb be enought for the game and how many then actually gameplays I can get with them?
Or should I better use some paid hosting?
Take you exported file size, and take 20gb and divide it by that.
That's how many people can download your game into their cache in a day.
By KG do you mean Kongregate?
Yes, KG means Kongregate. As I am also flash game developer, we use it quite often.
So, that means that, if 20 gb = 20971520 kb and my game folder size is 311 kb, then there can be actually 20971520 / 311 = 67k players in a day?
Thats quite impressive.
Uploaded to KG. You can play it here: bit.ly/Ny6xuN
Please, if You can then place 5 star rating. It is extrmely important for me!
I always thought that Kongregate hosts the game files for you..
Good luck with the game and I'll try it out now :)
It hosts only flash games .swf files
And it is my first game with this html5 engine and it is more as a test :-)
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Ah, cool cool.
Anyway, Good game! simple rules, but the distance the game takes place at makes it hard for me to make estimates on my movements.
Are you sure the bandwidth limit is that high? I thought it was lower. Hmm.
Will check again.
sqiddster Here it is: dropbox.com/help/45/en
I was also surprised, that it is actually so big. :-)
That's nice! Even so, If I were you, I'd look for a different method of hosting as you are really not supposed to do this.
To host my game on KG, I just asked around and a friend of mine happened to have a server ;)
I use fav.cc and 000webhost
Both pretty good, ad free, web hosts.
:) Dropbox is pretty kind with bandwidth, and It actually loads dependencies which I didn't expect. It works just like a webhost.
Yeah, they also are good. Have used them before, but the dropbox actually is very kind on giving bandwidth. :-)
