Hello all,

I have developped a pictionary game, and i want to submit it to this website, but i need to know who is the player which play my game.

I use the ExternalInterface to communicate with javascript code, but i think it's not possible in this website because you demand to upload only the flash file.

How can i identify users ?

Thanks

Is there a way to get the IP of the player in the flash file or something else to identify a player (if he play with IE or firefox for exemple, my game need to know that it's the same player) ?

You could add something like Google Analytics to your game. This will not show you their IP adresses (because that's a privacy issue) but it will most of the time show you what browser and flash version they're using.

You can't do that without a database. You should set up a server for your game with a database that allows players to login, which is going to cost you some money.

As far as databases go, an easy program to use is called MySQL, which you can use in conjunction with PHP, as long as the server is PHP enabled.

However, you cannot collect data that would identify a player in the manner to which you are referring becaues, as PixelSmash said, it is a privacy issue.

Actually you best bet is to check the local API of the site where you are submitting your game. It might give you a way to access the current logon data for anyone subscribed to the site.
