Well, basically my problem is quite a shitty one:
I can upload my game to Stencylforge and thats it. No where else, downloading somewhere else also impossible.
I believe that the game is just too big, but that is something i cant change.
Anyone who knows help please answer.

Game size?

Shrink your sound and image files. Search the forum for these.

If the game is too big you can also export the SWF or the whole project and share it for example with Dropbox.

i doubt your game is too big with no sound files, so you have like, a billion sprites or something?
Also i hope your signature is ironic and you don't actually mean #swag#yolo

Did the popup you get say anything that people may not able to download file from forge or something down that line ?.
If so it could mean you have a file or files corrupted.
Just a guess btw.
Something like that happen to me.

Or its your image sizes.
Use .gif for doing images.

Hi ipe 369 .gif give better compress as i made a image one .gif and other png same image mind but .gif was the better one as it compressed it more.

It´s better to use .png because Stencyl converts any image that you uses in your game to that format.

Oh, huh, never knew that, does it still retain it lossless? As in, it doesn't alter the image at all like jpegs do? Never knew! Thanks:L
