How To

Upload with iPhone 5

Hey, first time poster. The title probably makes me seem like a super noob.
I'm using an iPhone 5c (which I imagine is the issue here) and every time I try to choose the nx file in safari it only lets me choose pictures to upload. I've made a couple program I thought the community would appreciate like a simple vector graphics example and a basic (but working) 3D polygon graphics example. Not sure if there is a setting in safari to fix this, or maybe trying a different browser?

Which version of iOS do you use? Do you have iCloud enabled?

It says it's 10.3.3 (14G60). And I currently do not have iCloud enabled.

Ok, Safari only lets you select files from iCloud Drive (and fotos).
If I remember correctly LowRes NX’s share button shows that you need at least iOS 11, right?
In this case you would have to enable iCloud. Or use a computer to upload your programs.

I have 10.3.3 on my ipad mini...

First, i had to go to SETTINGS and there tap my name at the top... this is where i can manage my apple ID as well as manage my icloud...

I then had to tap my ICLOUD option, and a list of all my programs appear... here i turned ICLOUD DRIVE to ON, then i turned off icloud for indivdual prigrams except the few programs i wanted to use icloud, which for me i only turned on icloud for LOWRES NX

To upload a game, i cannot do it while in LOWRES, i have to go to the lowres posting board online (um.... that's here)...

I go to MY PROFILE (or PROGRAMS will also work) ..

Near the top, i click the line "UPLOAD A PROGRAM"

I fill out all the spaces, then select the button at the bottom "CHOOSE FILE" .

There is one for SOURCE CODE and one for SCREENSHOT

When i click one of those CHOOSE FILE buttons, a pop up appears and i choose ICLOUD, then i choose LOWRES NX

Be sure to load GAMENAME.NX for source code, and GAMENAME.PNG for screenshot

When you are sure you have the correct files, hit the SUBMIT button, and your game will get posted :)

Another note... try to upload via a good WIFI connection, not via cellular connection,,

My other big ipad is still using 11.4.1 (even though i can ugrade to the latest upgrade) and i can post games directly from lowres.... not so with 10.3.3

Thank you all, you were a big help. I did see where I would need 11 to upload in the app, but I was able to upload just fine using iCloud Drive.
