As someone with no knowledge and understanding on programming and networking, I am grateful to scirra and the community here for helping and giving me the opportunity step into the world of something I have always loved. I would like to increase my knowledge and understanding on the various approaches to games out there. I do hope that some of you with knowledge in this will be able to help shed some light on this. This is what I would like to create.
1: I want my to store all my game events and variables on a server.
2: The player can't play the game offline, as all the code is on the server.
3: At the start of the game, it will ask the player to enter a name. After that, every time the player achieves a new high score, it will will save the score onto the server next to the name so that it can be easily accessed.
What are the things that I will need to look into and learn to be able to implement this into my game?
Thanks you for any insight and advice on this.
