I think your game uses folders for files and that’s why it doesn’t work when directly uploading multiple files. You could use a .zip, but I think that copying all the scripts in one file is easier.

About how finding the script tags, your main file game source is this:

<html>
<head>
<meta content="IE=edge" http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible">
<meta content="no-cache" http-equiv="pragma">
<meta content="yes" name="apple-mobile-web-app-capable">
<meta content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=0" name="viewport">
<meta content="black-translucent" name="apple-mobile-web-app-status-bar-style">
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Created with GameMaker:Studio</title>
<style>
...non-important stuff...
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div id="gm4html5_div_id" class="gm4html5_div_class">
<canvas id="canvas" height="500" width="1000">
<p>Your browser doesn't support HTML5 canvas.</p>
</canvas>
</div>
<script src="html5game/Happy World.js?PBAZB=371859767" type="text/javascript">
</body>
</html>

The line you’re looking for is the third starting from the end, that one that says <script src="...

I know my game is multiple files, the problem I’m having is I dont know where to go to edit those script files and add my files into it

Open file
Select all
Copy
Go to the html file
Go between those two script tags
Paste
Save

I opened file
I selected all
I copied it
I went to the HTML file
I have no idea where to find the script tags
I wasn’t able to paste or save
Please help me a little more :(

Well, since I wrote the post that keeps getting referred to…

I took a look at your source on Kong. You have this line:
<script src="html5game/Happy World.js?PBAZB=371859767" type="text/javascript"></script>

So, make a backup of your html file (very important, you don’t want to lose code), and replace that line with this:
<script type="text/javascript">

</script>

Then, open up html5game/Happy World.js, select all, copy, and paste it in between the script tags.

Hopefully, you’ll have no problems. If you do, it’s probably going to be with the ?PBAZB=371859767. But since I can’t see the javascript, I don’t know for sure.

when you say make a backup of my file, you mean just creating a copy right? Also, how do I paste the files in between the lines? I dont under stand this… I’m sorry if I’m frustrating you guys, but I don’t have the slightest idea of how to do this ;-;

Just use the Kong multiple file upload system (check “upload additional files” when uploading) and upload the other files (.js, .css) there. Your main file should be a .htm or .html.

I tried that, it didnt work ;-;

I looked at that, and I didn’t understand it at all :c I’m still really new to coding, which is why I used game maker, where you dont even have to know how to code to use it, and I have no idea how to add that code

You may have extra files anyway, that were automatically generated. Look at the folder with your HTML file. Does it also have JavaScript files?

The dimensions aren’t the problem at hand, but 800 pixels is the normal width limit. That’s why scroll bars are showing up.

I did get extra files, but I didnt know they were important :o

I don’t know much about HTML5 games, but is it possible that the game requires multiple files? If so, you might have to do this.

Im not sure how to do extra files, im really new to making games

Also, isn’t your game too large ? there is a limitation on the width on kongregate.

I dont know if it is, its 500 pixels height and 1000 pixels width, I can lower that if that’s the problem

so, I have my video game complete, but when I upload it to kongregate, all I get is a blank gray screen, and the game doesnt start, anyone know how to fix this problem? here is my game right here http://www.kongregate.com/games/johnschmidl/happy-world

also, not sure if it is related to the problem, but I never added a loading thing at the start of my game, and when I uploaded it and it asked for how kongregate should pay me, I skipped it and did nothing, not sure if that is related to the problem, but if it is, please tell me

Topic: Game Programming / .gmx to html5

qwerberberber – ok… I’ll try to start learning HTML5 than, but I made my game for a school project, and part of it was to get it on a website, and its still in .gmx (it was due back on the 25th of December)

Draco18s – I tried Unity before and I didn’t understand anything about it, I didn’t even know the where to start, it was really confusing for me, and I don’t really even know anything about coding, but I think I’ll try to learn how to use it

Topic: Game Programming / .gmx to html5

qwerberberber – when I checked them out they were more expensive than upgrading my gamemaker, but thnx

SumGato – thnx for the alternative programs, but I don’t know the first thing about coding, I had to look up a bunch of youtube tutorials and randomly test some of the options to see what it did for my game, I dont think I could try out another game making program, as I know people say Gamemaker is the easiest to do, but I think I’ll try to get my parents to upgrade me to the $150 version :)

Topic: Game Programming / .gmx to html5

I am very new to creating games, and I barely know anything about coding (I’m 13) but I wanted to create a video game, so I used Gamemaker because it was really basic and I could understand it. I finished a game I called Happy World and I wanted to publish it on Kongregate, but it says that my game is a .gmx file and that I need to make it a html5 file to publish it, and I have no idea how to convert it, so can someone tell me how? (I also just got on the forums, so if I posted this in the wrong place, sorry)
