I haven't had much luck with this. Anyone have any tips on how I can make an online scoreboard?

this is where knowing php, asp, vbscript, or some sort of html/web scripting language, and knowledge of Mysql or another form of database will come in handy.

theres this handy dandy object called the live reciever object that allows you to retrieve web page info with GET and POST values as well.

to submit a score you can use the GET or POST methods to send information to your script that adds, updates, deletes, or whatever scores into your database. (POST is more secure)

to retrieve a list of high scores is a bit trickier as you actually need to retrieve the content and do something with it. your script should get the list of high scores from the database and echo them onto the webpage so when livereciever retrieves the information (you should store it in a string or similar text object) on the page you can then parse the information and output it on screen with mmf.

submit scores:
mmf->livereceiver->script->database

retrieve scores:
mmf<-livereceiver<-script<-database

Use the "get object" it's smaller and the live reciever isn't being updated anymore

No, but you don't need post for a scoreboard.

I believe lacewing does post.
Or moo sock.

yeah, I have aboslutly no knowledge of programming relating to php, asp, mysql ect, and I ain't got that much time to learn all of it tonight, so I guess it ain't happening, unless someone whose done it before wants to throw one in my lap, and since I haven't even got 1 single playtester, someone who can do that is out of the question. Thanks for trying.

Whoops. You are right Cecil. Sorry, I wasn't thinking, and you know more about this than me anyways.

I was gonna edit my original post and correct myself, but I got side tracked because I was doing something else at the same time and forgot about it.

Again sorry.

And yes what OMC posted is what you want OMGGames

Ah, that was actually the tutorial I was reading before, and I couldn't get first part. I'm not sure how to get the database name and all that garbage that was on there, it kind of didn't give me an idea on how to get that. I think the only one I figured out was the user name and password which was self explanitory.
