Hello QkyGames,

Since I'm in work-in-progress and don't like to change Stencyl versions I can't confirm. It works in 7316, so maybe you can get a hold of a previous version and check.
Did you test Native platform like Windows and/or Mac. Flash has limits how you publish it before it even works (It taps in to Javascript for Flash connectivity to work)

Hello QkyGames,

The latest example was made recently and it does not use the GUI extension so it is a little bit smaller and hopefully a bit easier to follow. There are still a lot of steps and 'after x' seconds to wait for it to work:

Hope this helps

Hello M.E. thanks

I can not understand how it works.
My App: Smashed Paints
My Table: leaderboard -> columns: ObjectID, level, createdAt, updateAt, ACL, user_id, score.

how I send the data to parse?
level: 1 user_id: 100, score: 1500 for example

and how do I read? for example the three first score.

regards.
Maxi.

Hello QkyGames,

It can be done with Parse, but it requires a lot of blocks.
That is why I teamed up with SadiQ to work on the Nuggeta engine which is much better equiped to handle these things.

The example that puts an email in the database first reads the email from the database. Basically you need those blocks for this as well.
The parse extension in Stencyl only uses Strings, so you need to fetch all the rows and do a comparison yourself or to use leading zeroes for the score so that the string comparison works a bit better. Either way you would need a lot of blocks.

It takes a long time to make the examples and I can't afford to spend it on making an example specific for you so I hope you manage on your own or take a look at the Nuggeta implementation which is much easier.

Best regards from
M.E.

Does this work with Parse Analytics?

Hello Max,

This extension works with REST only. Not knowing what parse analytics was I searched and found a class.
So far I know this is not part of the REST framework.

So it appears Parse and Nugetta have taken a one-way ticket to the graveyard of startups.
What went wrong?

Due to the complex communication this is abandoned in favour of more controlled communication with a dedicated server.
There is currently a high-score extension and work is done on Turn Based system including a Lobby server that handles shared data.
I refer to: http://community.stencyl.com/index.php/topic,37281.0.html
