Okay, im making a new simple shooter-game in TGF(i like the interface better than MMF) and now im wondering if there is some way to make an online-highscore list in a TGF game?

All extensions and examples/tutorials ive came across is just working in MMF only, not TGF. And i cant import it in MMF now, as im using certain extensions not supported by MMF... (-_- Smart, i know...)

So, id appreciate all help. Like links to extensions/tutorials/examples, and im really a n00b when it comes to this kinda stuff so try to explain slowly and simple.

Thanks in advance.

You can get mooSock for TGF can you not? So just follow a tutorial, and use the TGF version of moosock

Moosock works the same way in TGF as in MMF... find a moosock example for MMF, get a trial of MMF, and just manually "hand" copy the events into TGF.

I'm fairly sure the MMF tutorials will work the same as in TGF - there isn't really any major differences as far as I am aware.

This is a signature. Have this one on me.

Good luck with that project ! If you still looking for it... I found the link to the download.. it does infact say its available for TGF aswell

I've only just recently been using MooSock to connect applications together, its great and fast. But a online high score board ??? You'd be connecting to a server or something... Sorry, I dont know much to do with that.

I know it be slow, but the FTP object and a encrypted Text file could also work,
Download the file,
Open with Edit object,
Decrypt it with Blowfish,
Add the score where appropiate using a List object possibly,

Just an idea... Good luck Skydragon.

EDIT: I wonder if the FTP object in MMF2 is improved ???

I don't suppose there's anything exactly wrong with doing it via an FTP and CSV/text file, but then you've got the trouble of unencrypting the data for your page. Passing values to a PHP page and storing the scores in a MySQL database is the easiest way - it's one of the easiest languages I've ever tried to pick up.

You can add security by sending a checksum value, or one containing a code that isn't seen by the user (obviously, only if you're using POST rather than GET). Treasure Tower's security was far more simple than I'd have liked, and it hasn't been hacked yet. - Games, music, living in America
