C3 + Instant Games SDK = Much Profit

  • Ashley ok I understand I will make another idea with the specific things I need now. Thanks

    EDIT: Idea shared: https://construct3.ideas.aha.io/ideas/C3-I-486

    My five cents right now. Do not spend time on IAP, it is not widely supported yet.

    ChooseAsync is priority 1. (I can though do it via javascript/browser). It is a small/easy function which should be easy/fast to add.

    priority2: leaderboard "tagname" somehow, currently I can only request one leaderboard at the time, and then populate it, then request a new, but then I cannot use On Leaderboard loaded, since that is already true from the first request. so I have to turn off the first population events, and use a wait function to wait for the new data, then populate it.. works, but not nice, and causes delays. (i want both global highscore and friend highscore to be visable, maybe also the contextual.)

    the other stuff, not needed as I see it.

    I agree with paala s suggestion with chooseAsync and updateAsync

  • Ashley is the sourcecode from the instant games plugin available? I can add some missing features..

  • Editing official addons causes compatibility nightmares, so it's a deliberate decision to not make the code available. It's not necessary, either. The Instant Games SDK puts 'FBInstant' in the global namespace. So you can create a separate, independent plugin that makes extra Instant Games calls without needing to modify the official addon. Extensibility without compatibility nightmares!

  • Okay, thank you for the information. I'm looking into that!

       FBInstant.context.chooseAsync()
      .then(function() {
        console.log(FBInstant.context.getType());
      });[/code:329fwcnq]
    
    This works, you can see in the console that you actually has changed into a THREAD.
    But to be able to use the functions in the construct plugin later on (update contextueal leaderboards and similar. We must update
    InstantGames.ContextType
    InstantGames.ContextID
    
    So after calling chooseAsync we need to set the construct internal variabel name for these, otherwise the offical plugin do not get updated with the new ID and Type and the official events do not work with the new ID and Type....

  • Hey folks !

    I'm trying to understand why my Create home screen shortcut function doesn't work but I can't figure it out...

    My events are pretty simple, see screenshot below:

    Everytime I tap on ButtonHomeAdd, it fails.

    Is it due to my Android version ? Which is 7.x on a Huawei MediaPad, or am I missing something ?

  • Ok, I found out why it doesn't work.

    When you open an Instant Game via Messenger on Android for the first time, Facebook prompt a dialog asking you if you wish to add a shortcut to your homescreen.

    I actually did, then I removed the shortcut. I go back to Instant Game to add the shortcut, and when I tap on that button it fails...

    I had a look to Instant Game documentation and I found out that there is a canCreateShortcutAsync function (see https://developers.facebook.com/docs/games/instant-games/sdk/fbinstant6.2). I guess we're missing that function into the Instant Game plugin of C3. This would allow us to first check if the app is elligible or not to ask for shortcut creation on user's Android device.

    @Ashley: Does it make sense? May I create a feature request on https://construct3.ideas.aha.io/ideas/C3-I-486?

    Yes, it shows in the review tab even if you do not use it. But don't add it to the review (even if it's there)

    Note: questions regarding Instant Games review is better to ask in a facebook forum.
