Uploading to IFDB

Postby P/o Prune » Sat Feb 09, 2013 12:59 pm

How do you upload your game to IFDB?
I can add all the details and upload the game, but when I then check out the page it says that there is no known download links for this game?
Help please?

ISTR there was a option to link to a "Story File" when I uploaded "The Fortress of Fear"? Maybe I'm wrong (memory is getting worse as I get older!) but there is a link to download the game blorb and to the ADRIFT adventure page on the FoF page.

Thanks Larry.
Got it to work now.. didn't realize that I had to add an additional link to the upload thingy. But now all's set and done.

FYI, when uploading new adventures to the ADRIFT website, it now asks you if you want to also upload the details to IFDB. If you opt in to do this, it does it all for you.

Great feature... Looks like I just uploaded my game before it was implemented. But it sure saves you from a lot of work. :wink:
