Ludum Dare 37

Posted by F1ak3r on Dec. 9, 2016, 12:27 a.m.

Ludum Dare #37 is to be hosted on their new website

Starts in ~19 hours. Who all's participating? Seeing as I'm actually free this weekend (my year-end leave starts on Sat) I'm going to give it a shot, unless the theme totally sucks (but most of the contenders look reasonably interesting, so I don't think that'll be the case).

I might join this, the 72 hour version, of course. If the theme is good, not those "One room" or "Only 5 minutes", they are too limiting. I only gave +1 to six themes in the final round, the rest got -1…

I can never finish anything but I might give it a go anyway.

picture of all votes negative except for one.

That's how the last round usually goes for me.


Dropbox has dropped support for the public folder. I don't know how to use Google drive. Imgur is scary. Someone help me.

Google says the link is forbidden so I cannot see whatever I was supposed to see.

Dropped support? I thought it dropped the support to host web sites (well, Html documents), images should work just fine.

@Nopykon: Imgur is incredibly easy. Just go to the front page, drag the image you want to upload onto your browser and click the upload button. You don't even need an account.

And of course there's our very own 64D file manager…

@Jani: I imagine they would have similar reasons for dropping image support to those they had for dropping HTML support. Seems silly to block one and not the other if you're trying to avoid people using you as a public hosting platform.

I'll probably join in if I like the themes and can hype myself up enough in 7 hours time. It's been a while since I've submitted something.

@F1ak3r/Nopykon: Public folder is still working fine for me, for images at least (HTML has been dropped since October). Basically every image in my blogs is hosted via Dropbox.

Nopykon 7 years, 6 months ago

Every image in my blogs hosted via Dropbox, is not working. Maybe I hit some bandwidth limit. :/

I tried imgur. Not bad, still more work than right-clicking with db. Yeah, I could use 64d, and I manage two domains where I could put stuff (and probably will for images and stuff I want long term control over), but the whole point is that it should be so ridiculously easy that I will even bother. But yeah, imgur was ok.

You could try out

It's incredibly handy if you're sharing screenshots. It let's you crop an area of your display or capturing the current active window, or the whole screen, and uploads it and copies the link to your clipboard.

As for the LD, I'm not sure if I'll bother. I might if I immediately come up with something half-brilliant for the theme but most likely I'll just try to focus on the current project.

That worked out perfectly, thanks.
