Hi. I wrote down the summary of my project so that you can
understand and answer me more easily:
I have to build an application (a little flash game) in which
I record the number of clicks. I want the player to choose a nick
at the beginning and when he finishes one or all the four choices
of target, i want the application to write his nick and final score
in a database for displaying in a scoreboard (hall of fame). All
the new entries should be sorted according to the score. If the
same nick appears again, it's final score will be modified in the
scoreboard only if is higher then the previous.
I was thinking of creating a variable for the name that is
chosen at the beginning and a variable for the score that is
recorded. When the player finishes the game i want the application
to write his data in the database, and then to display the
scoreboard (let's say top 10 players in the database from the
highest to the lowest score).
I never did this before so i am asking what database shoud i
use? I need a programmer to create one for me? Or can flash
generate the database?
Is the variable the good way or should I aproach the problem
by other means? And if a programmer creates a database in MySql is
that good or he should convert it to XML, or Flash generates the
