While this is originally intended for GameMaker games, we can use it also with the NET commands.

It's an online scoreboard, for those who don't want to host that on their own server, it's free too.

I was gonna code a highscore table for GLBasic users to use. I have 10Gb of storage and most is being unused. I might download this to build my own :)

Should be rather useful!  The main advantage is that it should work in all platforms!

Got it going with a GLBasic test program :

Code (glbasic) Select
ok%=NETWEBGET("gmscoreboard.com","/handle_score.php?tagid=xxxxxxxx&player=TEST&score=1",80,"temp")

(xxx replaces my code)

Hmmm as I thought absolutely no encryption whatsoever. Some basic HTTP sniffing and I'd get your TAG ID from the app in a nano-second :-(

I have suggested it to the author (as well as recording the players country and platform)...

Yep, Cheating and hacking is a nobrainer and hence its not recommered to use this one. Sooner or later the hiscore table would been flooded with table, because your key can easy been sniffed out. The key they using does not security at all.

There's a glbasic php script for a highscore table that can handle encryption. It's in the glb showroom, too.
