User data from website to launcher to game

Postby tanu1215 » 17 Apr 2018, 00:38

This is more of a clarification question.

For my game I plan on creating a website with an account system. Players must sign up on the website in order to play our game, as account data such as usernames and avatars will be created on the website, and will appear in game. Note: our game is not web based. It's a computer application.

Then, I'll have a Java launcher handle logging into your account.

My question is: with smartfox, how can I, have players sign up on a website, log in using the game launcher, and have their appropriate information display in game.
I dont want to use smartfox's registration and logging in system. I'd like to create my own using ASP.NET.
We'll use a MySQL database as well.

I found this blog post which is describing something similar.
http://smartfoxserver.com/blog/integrat ... foxserver/
However, it doesn't include anything about a launcher.

I'd appreciate some clarification on what I need to do.

Just to clarify MY question. This system would be similar to Minecraft's web sign up, launcher login, and ingame user activity system.

I believe I wouldnt even need to involve smartfox for something like this. I just want to be sure, however.

Hi,
take a look at this article:
http://smartfoxserver.com/blog/integrat ... foxserver/

It should give you an idea on how to implement the login system.
If there's anything unclear let me know.

Hope it helps
