I vaguely remember this has been covered not too long ago, but I can’t find the thread.
I got small pictures for the locations of my game. When I release the game (“Release along with an interpreter.”) the resulting .gblorb file contains the graphics but when I use the play.html to play the game in a browser there’s no graphics. What do I need to do so that playing via the .html file also shows the pictures?
OK, that was me wailing about that in a couple of threads.
If you just want an online play link, use Borogove.io, which is insanely user-friendly and will support graphics.
If you want to do it on Itch, follow the directions in this thread, Juhana’s post # 19.
To see images in Quixe (the default interpreter when releasing with an interpreter), you need to run a python script provided by zarf. Script & command line can be found at the very end of this page: Quixe Graphics Support · erkyrath/quixe Wiki · GitHub
Okay, I want to upload the game to my own website - that blocks me from using a .zip file and Borogove, right?I’ll look into the solution Florian suggests.
Come to think of it, now that Inform is open-source, it would be useful to have it do this automatically. I’ll take a look sometime and see how much work that would be to implement.
@Grueslayer – the docs I sent you about transcript-recording etc. include the Zarf script step (using ifsitegen.py) which will include your graphics.
The zip file would work. Just upload all the individual files in it (or upload the zip and unpack it on the server.)
