Entrys sent to compofiles@thegamecreators.com seem to get forwarded to google mail. Unfortunatly as can be seen here

http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=9481&topic=12849

Google Mail does not accept Zipped attachments that contain executable files.

Save yourself a failure notice or 2 and use yousendit.com which should work unless its E-mail gets cought in a spam filter.

Aslo the .exe is not needed in your post.

I had the same problem. Instead I used SmartFTP to upload to there FTP server.

HowDo, read this: "Make sure you have included everything - the source code, the exe file, all media it needs, the author.txt, etc." at http://physxcomp.thegamecreators.com/submit.html

So it seems it is needed as part of the entry

Just to be sure; will everything be okay if a link is provided to a normal zip file. I am pretty sure it should be but just in case.

@nzjony

tired to do that way the first time, but the post system just chucked it back at me, so the only way I could send it was to leave the complied bit out.

less to send if you not got the band width.

Correct, if you are emailing your entry, rename the attachment to ._ZIP to bypass googlemail attachment eater. Alternatively you can FTP your entry to our INCOMING folder as specified in the competition page.
