I have been working on an interactive novel for nearly a year now. Naturally, every now and then I compile a new version so that my friends and family may read it and give me feedback. But some of them would rather be able to read it on their ipad, as opposed to their desktop.
I’ve searched the forum several times, but I haven’t been able to find a solution.
Is there a way to fix this? Or does Choicescript simply not work on ipad?
probably a bug, its always a bug nowadays. or maybe it just doesn’t like certain softwares?
I see. So it could be a bug?
Let me clarify:
I would recommend as a first attempt at a fix, hosting it somewhere and sending them the link. (E.g. put it on Dashingdon or neocities and then send them that link.)
All right, I will try that!
Just to make sure: it is possible to host it on Dashingdon privately, is it? (I don’t feel ready to make it available to anyone just yet.)
As for the second part, I suppose the easiest thing would be to ask: is there anyone here who was able to make a Choicescript game work on an iPad the way I was trying to? (That is to say, without hosting?)
In case anyone else has the same problem and/or is interested, here is an update:
In the end, I decided not to use Dashingdon because it would lose the changes I made to the .js files. Instead I hosted the .html compiled version on neocities. Now it works! Thank you RETowers for suggesting it.
Admittedly, I am still curious as to whether it’s possible to make it work on an iPad without this intermediary step. If anyone has an answer, please let me know!
Yes, you can make your game private on Dashington; which is only avalible by a dircet link that you supply.
