Scirra Arcade Password Protection?

  • So when you finish your project, you have the option to export your project as an HTML file.

    The HTML zip is useless unless you want to host it online, which then you have 2 options:

    Option 1 is to have your own paid website which you can put your index.html file on.

    Option 2 is to put it on the Scirra Arcade, which then everyone else can play.

    But I'm too broke to buy a website, and I don't want everyone else using my program.

    I was wondering if I could put my game on the Scirra Arcade, but then add a password layout, so that the game would only continue if you have the correct password.

    The thing is, I don't know if that's allowed. Can someone point me in the right direction to if I'm allowed to lock my Scirra Arcade games with a password, or at least show me the Scirra Arcade rules?

    Thanks in advance.

  • If you upload your game to the arcade, there are three access settings:

    Public - Anyone can view it

    Private - Only usernames you specify can view it

    Private URL - Only playable if you know the exact URL

    This should be sufficient. Your game might be deleted if you add a password layer, as that will clutter the arcade up and ruin the experience for most users.
