Hello,

So I decided to purchase ImpactJS. I installed XAMPP and placed the impact folder within the htdocs folder. Whenever I type in 'localhost/impact/', the game, of course, runs.

Out of curiosity, I decided to change the title of the page from "Impact Game" to something else. I right-clicked index.html to open it in Notepad++ and changed the text within the <title> tags to "TEST". When I refreshed 'localhost/impact', the change did not appear, but when I went to 'file:///C:/xampp/htdocs/impact/index.html', the change within the <title> tags appeared but, of course, the game did not load.

I'm new to this, so I'm at a loss at what I should do.

Thanks in advance.

I would guess it's just a caching issue. If you're using Chrome I recommend opening developer tools (ctrl+shift+i), and then clicking the little gear in the upper right corner of the developer tools pan. The first option under General should be a checkbox where it says "Disable cache (while DevTools is open)"

This is pretty much a must if you're doing web-development/making games with Impact.

Or just reload with Ctrl + F5, this wipes the cache as well.

That's why I wrote my Impact dev server. It's lighter weight than Apache and doesn't cache anything. You can also run your game from wherever without having to edit .htaccess files.

You still have to turn off the caching in your browser but at least you don't have to worry about the server caching, too.

I feel so silly. Thanks!

Oh, cool! I may switch to this. I just wasn't thinking thoroughly about what was going on; I should have been able to figure it out. Thankfully they were kind enough to respond swiftly.

Referencing your earlier posts... happy so far with your purchase? Getting enough help?

I intend to fiddle with it throughout the afternoon when I have time. I'm sure I'll be happy with it. Definitely got more than enough help than what I needed so far.

Thanks for taking an interest in my experience. =)
