“Linked” Online Game Maker Highscores

on March 8, 2010 - 3198 Views

A new online highscores system for Game Maker has been launched.

Linked which is part of the UpUrLoad file hosting website utilises 39dll to make it easy to maintain a global highscores table.

Created tables can be viewed directly within your game (there is no need to launch a browser window when sending or retrieving scores). Scores are sent as encrypted md5 strings which include a secret key visible only in the creator’s Linked account.  There are versions available for Game Maker 6-8.

This is probably the easiest to use online highscore solution for Game Maker games that I have seen.

    It looks accesible and has a nice variety of features, but for me the Roket integration is still far and above the be all and end all for online high scores as far as ease of use goes.

  2. Remember to make those features customizable (at least on/off). Would be nice to see a geniunely easy-to-implement high scores system. Good luck with it 😀

    Thanks! I plan on adding some more features soon (eg. week best, month best, etc). When I released it I was just making sure it had decent security and was easy to use and fully customizable.

    Note: “highscore” is actually two words but for the subtitle I wanted to keep it as one.
