Self Hosting 180.jpg 404


I have downloaded my build from Playcanvas and pushed all of the files up to our server. It loads and runs, but it seems to hang up for a minute during the load time and these errors shows up in the console.

GET **full url**/thumbs/180.jpg 404

GET **parent url**/favicon.ico 404

Error while trying to use the following icon from the Manifest: **full url**/thumbs/180.jpg (Download error or resource isn't a valid image)

Has anyone seen this before or know how to fix it?


That error should be unrelated to it hanging. This error is just saying it can’t find a file for the icon that appears for site.

When in the load time does it hang?
Can you post a video of the load?
Does it happen when you publish and host on PlayCanvas servers

There are a number of things that can cause this including: large resource assets, shaders that need to compiled, initialise functions taking a lot of CPU time etc.

If you can post a link to the published build, that will help a lot too.

Ok, thanks for the response!

It is not very consistent but it generally happens towards the last 80% of the loading bar. It does not happen when I “Launch” the build from the editor so perhaps it is just an issue with our server. We use GoDaddy as a host so perhaps it is something on their end?

Is there a way to solve the page icon error related to the project build?

You could add the missing resource icon or remove it from the manifest.json file.

eg From:

{"short_name":"Some Name","name":"Some Name","start_url":"","display":"fullscreen","icons":[{"src":"thumbs/180.jpg","sizes":"180x180","type":"image/jpeg"},{"src":"thumbs/360.jpg","sizes":"360x360","type":"image/jpeg"},{"src":"thumbs/540.jpg","sizes":"540x540","type":"image/jpeg"},{"src":"thumbs/720.jpg","sizes":"720x720","type":"image/jpeg"}]}
