I have made a RPG maker game, but it is a .exe so Kongregate won't accept it because .exe isn't a valid extension. I have search online everywhere I could, but I couldn't find anything to change it. I also don't want to change it through the title (such as going into properties and adding a .html at the end) because it could cause it not to work. Any ideas on how I could change it?
The creator of the RPG maker software probably sells a really expensive .exe > .swf converter. If not, you're out of luck, seemingly. You could always pay the $99 fee and upload it to Steam Greenlight.
adv0catus, the creator of RPG Maker doesn't sell .exe to .swf converter, as far as I know. Also I don't have enough money to put it to steam greenlight, and it probably wouldn't be a good enough game to be on steam. I will put it on another website besides kongregate. Any suggestions on what I could put it on?
The short answer is that you can't. Kongregate only accepts Flash (.swf) and HTML5 Games, not .exe games. So unless you can find a way to export your game as one of those formats then i'm afraid you can't upload your game to Kongregate.
In theory it's possible for an exe to work online but there are currently no sites offering that service that I'm aware of and probably never will.
You can upload the files to a file sharing websites but people will still have to download and install it to get it to work.
Don't know which version of RPG maker you have but if you cannot find an option to export for flash/html5 you can't do it. RPG Maker MV has an HTML5 option though so the easiest way would be to port your game to that then upload it here.
Occasionally, Steam has really big sales for MV. I think I got it awhile back for like 5-10 bucks despite its normally-high price tag. I'd suggest adding it to your wishlist so you can get notified next time it goes on sale. If you want to publish it in a web-friendly format, that's pretty much your only option.
