Yeah, I was just wondering if this was possible in the Games Factory. If so, how?

Just so I can keep a count on how many people have played it.

You could use moosock (if they have that for TGF?) and if you have MMF pro, the email object. But why would you want to know? Just look at a download counter.

Heh, a download counter isn't done in html

It can be done in CGI, PHP, ASP or possibly Javascript (not sure about that one)

Sadly, I know none of the above

i think assault andy is refering to the download counter on the download page that is created when you submit your game.

php counters are easy. The easiest way is proberbly by using a MySQL database to hold the info

If you are using the MooSock or MMF Pro's E-mail object(havent used Moosock, but the e-mail object is very simple and does the job great) then i suggest you put in a notice for the first time they start their game up telling them that its sending an e-mail saying you have downloaded this game, otherwise they wont trust the game at all if they see that their firewall is showing that your game is trying to send information their un-aware of.
