Lets say I created a program asking for NAME and ADDRESS and
PASSWORD. So, the new user enters their name/address/password.
How would I go about STORING that information, so that next
time that person visits the site, or that program, they could enter
their NAME and PASSWORD, and Flash would recozgnise them and they
would be able to login?
Basically this is for a Word game RPG. I want to store
someones items like swords, shield, etc on a server somehow. And
when they login to the game again, it woulud remember them because
of their name/password and they would be able to start the game
where they left off, with their same items.
I guess if I the actionscript commands to store a NAME,
ADDRESS, PASSWORD I will be able to store anything I want to. I
just want to know how to store information for a particular user,
and recall it later.
in the end I guess you will have to store them on a server in
some kind of database (or flat-file if it isn't going to be a lot
of information). That means that you have to send the variables
(data) you wish to store to a server-side script (PHP, Perl,
Cold-Fusion, ASP etc. that stores) and also retrieve them for Flash
You could try to work with local shared objects, something
alike cookies, but that isn't as reliable, and the user cam only
play at the same machine.
