How to add high scores to my flash game? Not web based.

Jun 6, 2010 2:02 PM

Hi,

 

I have a simple flash based quiz game with simple score var and percentage var. I am wanting to a high score function to it as motivation to my kids by creating healthy competition with high scores. This is not a web based game. I found many PHP high score tutorials but wont work for me.

 

Please assist or if you could put me onto a good tutorial.

 

Thanks

    you want individuals to play against only their personal high scores or you want to track all player's high scores.

    the scores have to be stored somewhere and they can't be stored in flash.  so, you'll need to create an air app that will contact a server and use server-side coding.

    on whose harddrive?  that's the issue.

     

    if i play your game on my computer and store my score on my harddrive, you're not going to have access to it or i have a significant security issue.
