It's possible to just upload an INI file to a FTP host like Sitesled, but how you would get it into webpage form, so people can few it in a clean form in there browser, through a link, is something I'm not exactly sure how to do.
You could do it using an INI but it'd be a pain in the butt.
You'd need to use the FTP object to upload the ini when the score is submitted, and download the ini to retrieve scores - plus people can easily edit INIs anyway.
But you can't do it with TGFs highscore object I'm very sure. And the SSI would only work if your joining a game that somebody is hosting wouldn't it? Because you'd be using MooGame which doesn't connect to HTTP servers I'm very sure. Please do upload it though Axel, if you're telling the truth anyway..
Yessss... you'd need a MOS server. helper3000.net works fine (though it has had some downtime recently), and it's pretty good for those who don't know ASP or PHP (like me).
There doesn't seem to be a single bloody article on the subject that really helps you. Has ANYONE managed to actually make an online hi-score board using those articles? I doubt it
Finding free PHP/ASP/MySQL hosting is pretty hard too.
EDIT: another good thing with the SSI version is that it's fast. REALLY fast. It loads almost instantly. Kickass compared to all the MySQL based ones I've seen, that freeze the game for a moment, and are slow and annoying.
Well, I suppose you get more control using MySQL and stuff.
EDIT 2: Alright. I may upload it... As soon as I get home to my own computer... Which might be... Next year =P
Its pointless if you're using a public server - firstly those servers go down quite a lot. And when the server goes down, isnt the SSI lost so your scoreboard effectively gets erased? I'm guessing so - although I've never used SSI.
I was planning on create a high-score system which people can register accounts on and create hi-score tables for their games with no PHP or MySQL knowledge needed. However I've not had the time to do it at the moment..
