Multiple Leader-Boards, to allow your users to compete, irrespective of their gaming platform.
Add two new game level attributes as below:
Whenever a player beats his own high score, allow him/her to enter their name/nickname (max 16 characters), then send these values to APPFormative™ as follows:
As seen above, the third column contains a Leader-Board name of your choosing. This name should be no longer than 24 characters and not contain any spaces or special characters.
Create a T_Leaders table with 10 columns, each of type text. This table will receive the list of players on the Leaderboard:
When you need to display the Cross-Platform Leaderboard, request the leaderboard from APPFormative™ as follows:
Please note the Parameters included in the URL:
LS is the number of top Players you wish to have returned from the Server. Keep this number low to conserve network usage for the user. A list of the top 10 or 20 Players is usually quite acceptable.
LB is the name of your Leader-Board (here represented by AAAAAA) as sent when posting the score. Remember, this may not contain spaces or special characters.
The T_Leaders table will now contain a list of the top 20 players, their name in column 1, their score in column 2, starting on row 2. Please note that row 1 contains control data which is not part of the leader-board list.
You can use a "Loop Over Table" behavior to cycle through the table and display the Leader-board.
