I'm in need of a very simple saving system for my project. The thing is that its based around awesomium, and not web/browser at all.
Can i still use WebStorage? Or do i need a plugin? Is there a way to save data into an XML file locally? Or another type of file which is harder to exploit/edit?
I really just need to save a few values. Lets say my game has 5 chapters - all i need then is a local file with a true/false value for each entry (chapter).
Any idea where to start? :)
Bump! No one got any idea of where to look? :/
Awesomium is technically still a browser so WebStorage should work just fine.
Edit: For future reference, it's generally good form to wait at least 24 hours before bumping a thread.
You can still use WebStorage for a desktop game. Sounds a bit counter-intuitive, but all Awesomium does is basically launch a new self-contained Chrome, meaning it still has the bells and whistles of a browser (probably not all of them, actually, but definitely WebStorage).
There was a glitch when it was first implemented that wiped all the data you stored when you closed the game, but I'm preeetty sure that was fixed. Someone correct me if I'm feeding this poor man lies! <img src="smileys/smiley36.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

Heh, yeah i was a few hours short of 24 hours, but the topic was already heading for page 4 so..
Anyways, thanks alot guys, i'll stick with that, and hopefully it will work out :)
WebStorage works in Awesomium last I tried. Did you try it? It should work fine.
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Havent bumped into any issues with it yet :)
