I have made a game which has the scirra arcade plugin and i have set the actions for it to submit the player's score and time(how long he lasted in a particular level) to scirra arcade with leaderboard id set to SCORES and TIME respectively. I've searched the internet for help and all i get is i have to create a leaderboard on the scira website using the same names i used as an id in the game events but i've searched everywhere on the scirra website to find a section where you create a leaderboard but to no avail i cant see the term leaderboard anywhere can someone please help me.
Leaderboards may not be implemented (yet). See this post:
You can use some other service for leaderboards, for example GameSparks.
ok, thanks for taking time to help and please how does the game sparks work? and how do i get and implement it
You'll need to download GameSparks addon, register your game on their website etc. Search the forum for more information.
GameSparks is just one option, there are many other services you can use (for example, Firebase), or store leaderboards on your own server.
alright, thanks a lot
dop2000 do you know where i can get the firebase plugins for creating a leaderboard?
i checked out the gamesparks but it seemed a bit complicated to me and i think i can do better with firebase but i'm having issues getting the plugins
Have you tried googling?
yeah i did, I've even already tried to visit this particular site but i think there is a problem with the link when i click it the page doesn't load that was why i even came here to ask of your help maybe you might know a different site
I don't know what you are talking about. All download links I gave you are working. Here are a bunch more:
i was saying that all the tutorials that actually talked about firebase referred to a website owned by a guy called Rex Rainbow to download the required plugins but the links provided in the tutorials to that website(Rex Rainbow'site) doesn't work when i click on it, when click on the link i get an error message
this is the site recommended in all the tutorials that talked about firebase in contruct 2 please try clicking the link to visit the site and see what i mean (http://c2rexplugins.weebly.com/rex_firebase.html)
This site can’t be reached c2rexplugins.weebly.com took too long to respond.
Checking the connection
this is error message i get but my internet connection is good and workig when i visit any other website it opens except the rex rainbow's site
It works for me! Try a different browser, VPN, or try opening it from any proxy website.
Couple of direct download links from Rex's page (there are many more):
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
really, so how come the links are messing up only with me:( i really need those plugins i need 3 main plugins from Rex's site, i need the firebase_apiv3, firebase_authentication and the firebase_leaderboard but since I'm unable to access the site and it's working for you, can you please please download these 3 plugins and send the zip files to me via my e-mail or something or if you have a dropbox or one drive account please download and save it there and send me a link to download directly from there please:(
