Poll: High Score Board

This forum is currently in read-only mode.
  • Would you want a fully featured High Score Object added to Construct?

    The thing I miss most from Game Maker was the very nice high score board. I wish someone would make an Object that held 10 names and scores sorted in high or low order( by selection). Any other suggestions for this?

  • i"m not aware of any good games that use High Score tables.

    so,no

  • I'd rather have achievements, they're more fun as an optional challenge than a high score.

    Agreed, achievement's are fun imo, they add reply value and they don't need plug-in's I believe, neither a high-score nor an achievement system.

  • I hate trivial achievements, though... they are by FAR overdone. Such as: "You breathed!" or "You used your mouse!" achievement. In my opinion, achievements should be awarded for non-trivial accomplishments, such as finishing a game, doing an optional overly dragged-out side quest or stuff.

  • How about achievements for doing an insane stunt? think of GTA having achievements when you do some cool stuff with vecechles(sp?) like a motor bike pulling off some dare devil move's? you achieve "dare devil" achievement for example.

    In newgrounds there most flash game's have medal's and most of them require some skill or effort to get, they're very fun to get they give's more replay value imo.

  • Everyone seems to like achievements, but once you get your achievement you are done. High scores can go on indefinitely. Faster time, more kills, people saved, complex scores like skill minus damage.

    But hey this is not an achievement vs High Score debate like every one seems to be posting. This topic is High Score only. Besides you can have high scores and achievements in a game. Right So why are you pushing achievements?

    Christ, calm down, you wanted people's opinions, you're getting them, don't have a heart attack about it.

    I didn't yell, re-read my post. I just commented that this is a high score post.

    But WOW you seem stressed! LOL Having a bad day Lost my Keys?

    I wasn't the one getting upset over achievements being mentioned, lol.

  • Everyone calm down. I've been modding enough stuff lately, I don't need the extra work.

  • You really would need a lot of options for such a plugin to truly be useful (at least, useful for more than the first dozen to put it in their game and cause people to groan when they see it ).

    Yeah, it can't look like it is a plugin.

  • I think a high score plugin would be useful.

    Not all games require a high score table, but some do.

    Just like some games don't require an achievement feature, but it somehow gets shoe-horned in and ruins the game (with trivial achievements like Mipey mentioned).

    Those that don't want a high score table in their game, don't plug it in!

    The plugin would have to be very customisable though.

    If you can't get it to look and operate the way you want it to, you may as well write your own.

    Krush.
