This looks really cool, the style is awesome.

Admin

On the community profile pages, it's not possible to customize what's there right now. I agree that making it match the main profile is a good idea.

Admin

Looks cool, I put you up on the fresh games section on the homepage. Thanks for sharing

Admin

There's nothing legally binding about something like that when joining a game jam, but if the hosts see you breaking the rules then they'll probably kick you out. You're welcome to include any rules that are appropriate for your jam.

Admin

Looks great, I bumped you up on the fresh games section on the homepage.

Looks cool, I added it to the fresh games section on the homepage. Thanks for sharing.

On what page did you click the"Verify my account" button? I can check to see if there's an issue with it. In the meantime, can you try clicking again here: https://itch.io/user/settings/email-addresses

If you're still not getting something then I recommend checking your spam box as it might have been caught my your email provider or client.

Thanks

I recommend uploading your game files directly to itch.io so people can always access them without any issues, and download them through our app.

Admin

We strongly recommend developers to upload a DRM free version of their game. If their game is available on Steam then you can include a Steam key for people who want to access those features. We do make exceptions for some games to sell only Steam keys but there must be a reason like the game requires Steamworks to be functional.

Regarding the upload size, I've removed your upload limit. For larger games we recommend developers to use our command line upload tool: https://itch.io/docs/butler/. It's significantly more reliable than uploading in your browser, has a higher upload limit, and will only upload delta patches.

Admin

Were the games previously free? If you downloaded a game for free, but the developer converted it to a paid game then you will not longer have access to it. Downloading a free game does not give you ownership of it. (Developer can give out ownership, but they need create a 100% off promotion, or hand out keys directly)

If you'd like you account closed you can contact support.

Does this link work? https://pjank42.itch.io/theairlineproject/devlog

Closing duplicate topic

Admin

Thanks for reporting the issue. There was probably an error during your login request and the app got stuck. Did you try force quitting and logging in again to see if it makes any difference?

Admin

Great post, thanks for sharing.

Admin

The jam has to be published and unlisted. Is that the issue you're  having?

Admin (2 edits)

Thanks for the feedback. I definitely can see the confusion there. We'll see if we can fix that in a future update.

Admin

Thanks, I fixed it.

Admin

Tutorials do not change how fresh your game is, but they can help more people find your game when people browse through posts.

Admin

Congratulations, I've featured you on the homepage.

Admin

I'm directly replying to your post to notify you of my other reply here: https://itch.io/post/547854

Admin

I recommend creating a devlog when you push out the update: https://itch.io/updates/devlogs-post-types-enhanced-browsing-and-more (see the A New System For Updated Games section).

A devlog "major update" post can boost how your page is ranked on our browse pages in terms of popularity. At the moment devlog posts are reviewed since we don't want people trying to abuse the system with low quality posts, so if you're posting an update post please put some effort into it. (Include text of changes, some images, any other information)

Hey, sorry for not getting back sooner. We currently don't have a way to set up a global forum across many projects. We can however convert individual project pages to be available only to people who "own" that project (via download key or purchase). I'm wondering if there's a hybrid thing we could do where your forum lives on a project page and you had out access to that page when people buy things. 

Admin

Hey, The layout of the project page doesn't change much when someone owns the project. We add a banner on the top with a link to their download page, but the product page is still purchasable if they scroll down. It's possible to buy more copies of games as gifts.

Admin

Maybe you uploaded a screenshot of some new gameplay!

Admin

Yeah, according to thresholds they set we still classify as small enterprise with room to spare. I think they really are focused on targeting much larger companies with this legislation.

Version 23 will not update automatically, we've replaced the updating system. For older app users we'll be putting an upgrade notification on their homepage when they start the app. You'll have to redownload the installer from https://itch.io/app

Your library and settings will copy over when you update to 25.

Admin

Congratulations!

Admin

When do you plan on updating this topic? I recommend creating a topic when you're ready to post otherwise your topic might get buried.

Admin

Is this for the new version of the app that recently came out? Version 25. Could you check your task manager while things are slow to see what's consuming resources?

We haven't received any reports of the app having that effect on anyone's computer. The new app should be significantly faster than the last, but given that we can't control the software that might be on someone's computer, we can't anticipate all issues. If I had to guess I would say it's probably virus scanner you have on your computer. 

Thanks

Admin

Looks like your images are broken, you may have copied private image URLs from your email. Try uploading the images through the post editor.

Article 13 will not kill itch.io. I'm not sure what "I heard it will" means, is there some source saying that it will?

From what I understand, itch.io classifies as a "small enterprise" and is not subject to the regulations being announced . The regulations are effectively designed to attack large internet companies. These laws do set a dangerous precedent though, since if they were expanded then it would enable the larger platforms to continue operating with their capital and block out smaller platforms from ever starting

If we grow past the threshold then we will investigate adding automated content filtering services. Something like this will most likely come from a third party service that is in compliance, since burden it would place on us to run ourselves would be great.

Disclaimer: we're still going over it to fully understand how it will affect us in the future. We have no intention of blocking EU users from accessing itch.io. We may change our plan of action as we learn more things.

Regarding the link tax (article 11), we're still investigating it but it appears to be  very bizarre and ignorant of how the internet works. At this point, it seems that if external sites want to participate in this system then we'll give them the tools to block their links from appearing on our site.

Is this game played in the browser? If so then the key owner will have to navigate back to the project's page after attaching the key to their account to access the game. This is a issue with our UI that needs to be fixed to make it more clear.
