Alright. Netlify seem pretty good for hosting MV games through the browser. Honestly, it was the simplest thing. I signed up for free, uploaded my project folder. And Boom. There it was.

http://coyotecraft.netlify.com/

I haven't messed with web hosting in years. I've heard of Github for coding websides but I haven't had a reason sign up. I'm assuming you manage your file directory if you link your Netlify site with github.
All I can do from Netlify is change the url name or delete the site.

With a free account you have 100 MB of storage a month, and 1 GB bandwidth.
It would have been neat to be able to show of demos on Plug-ins in browsers. See, I changed the flashing sprite destination indicator from a square to a circle - but in a screenshot that's nothing.
But that's doesn't seem very practical. I cut out as much as I could from the project folder - no sounds ect... but my upload speed is terrible and 11Mb took a while. A new project with everything still in place was over 70mb.
Probably leave deploying projects to fancier demos and finished games.

Also, the character movement is really slow compared to playing offline. It's got to be a browser thing right? If its loaded then why should it run any different?

The movement seems okay to me - it's running at what appears to be a minimum of 60fps, and the player moves about as fast as I'd expect them to.
Have you tried other browsers?

It's 20fps in chrome but on my Dad's laptop, in chrome it's 60fps
It doesn't run at all in Explorer
On my dad's phone browser it looks like it's running 60fps or close to it.
Outside of the browser it runs perfectly at 60fps.

I don't know why my Chrome would run any different than my dad's.

And a different mystery I'm looking into is where the savefile goes when you save in browser.

It works superb in Safari except for no music.

I took out the music, sounds, and pretty much everything I could to make the project as small as possible. But I don't think it's very practical to show off dumb small plugins like changing the square indicator to a circle.

I could shave off a little bit more. But the core .js and data folders are like ~3mb without any images and nothing to the maps.

Amy, how did you embed that MV demo in a post earlier?

I made a custom bbcode for it to make an iframe with it in.
