New games every week!
The other half...
7th December 2008  
Today I started on the online highscore stuff.
Having sat playing AD2 for a while, again, last night, I figured I'd better get a move on and finish the basics off.

So, into the database we go, and I've set up the tables. I implimented the basic checksums to ensure each level is unique enough to qualify, and I additionally added a secondary "Bag" table, that can hold new levels until they're ready to be downloadable. Always something new, ready and raring to be sent!

Next up, work on the script that handles it all. Should be fun!!

I might also add some kind of web-based system, too, so you can check out the online highscores from your browser. Although I'm not too sure how that'd work, what with there being an unlimited number of levels, and all!!

For reference, this is the previous game's Online Highscore thing. It's not all that fancy, but it's good for checking out the latest scores!
Might be fun to turn that into an RSS feed this time..
Hmmm....
