I noticed in Retorun that they MUST have used that objcet for their scoreboard thing, but how on Earth did they get the HTTP object to do that? I wanna know partly out of curiosity, to know more about how every little thing works, but also because I MIGHT consider it for my own game. Personally, I feel it MIGHT be out of place, but I also love scores. They're a classic element of gaming, and the old standard by which gamers used to compare each other with. Not weather you beat a game, or did this accomplishment, but what your "hi-score" was. One of the things I loved from Sonic Adventure 2, and other games like Trauma Center: New Blood and NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams that lets you upgrade your scores. It gives a nice competitive feeling with that most classic element of games. So I might try making it work, but in the meantime, I'm just wondering how it works.
Also: I assume HTTP can be used for things like scoreboards and whatnot, but can the Download object actually allow for downloadable content, like levels, weapons, etc. if one was so clever enough?
