HOLY CRAP I FREAKING LOVE YOU!!!


This is my favorite extension now!







Now if only you or someone can figure out how to send a screenshot along with the share message this would be gold :)

Okay after some playing around with this here are some suggestions that I would love to see :)


1) Take a screenshot of the game and post it along with the tweet/facebook post/pinterest post/etc...


2) The ability to select different sharing methods instead of adding them all in there. (I'd like to just use texting, Twitter, and FaceBook)


3) The ability to set different messages based on sharing method (If I use twitter I want it to say this.... BUT if I want to use FaceBook I say this... Instead.)


Other then that this is awesome! I've been waiting for this for quite a long time.
Here's what I have so far :)




Most of the message is random except the hashtag, @ mention, link, and the character used.

Thank you Max for you suggestions..


1) Take a screenshot of the game and post it along with the tweet/facebook post/pinterest post/etc...
I thought about this, but instead of a screenshot, I think of the game icon or other image. i will look at this, but is not my first priority

2) The ability to select different sharing methods instead of adding them all in there. (I'd like to just use texting, Twitter, and FaceBook)
The reason I did this is because everyone use different share app. Instead of adding a sellected group of apps, i add them all.

3) The ability to set different messages based on sharing method (If I use twitter I want it to say this.... BUT if I want to use FaceBook I say this... Instead.)
Not thought about this, can you gif me an excample of a message you want to share to facebook and not to twitter and vice versa.

Enjoy the extension...

Or both? A screenshot of the game would work well for players with highscore games or similar. If I post a score to Facebook or Twitter but show no evidence of my score then did I really get a highscore?

However, some games that don't use high scores could benefit from an icon or other image.

2) The ability to select different sharing methods instead of adding them all in there. (I'd like to just use texting, Twitter, and FaceBook)

I don't know if you understood me there. What I'm saying is I don't want to use AirDop, print, and so on. I just want to share a message on Twitter, Facebook, and by Text message. However, YOU might want to use Pinterest, Print, and Airdrop.

So what I'm saying is give users an option to choose what service to share too instead of sharing too all.

3) The ability to set different messages based on sharing method (If I use twitter I want it to say this.... BUT if I want to use FaceBook I say this... Instead.)
Not thought about this, can you gif me an excample of a message you want to share to facebook and not to twitter and vice versa.

Yeah :) here's an example of what I'm thinking.

Twitter: Booyah! I just scored 29 points in #MrTart! Think you can beat me? @MrTartGame ~ With Blueberry Tart

(In the twitter message I tag @MrTartGame. This is a Twitter account for the game. It won't work on FaceBook or Text Message.)

Facebook: Booyah! I just scored 29 points in Mr Tart! Think you can beat me? ~ With Blueberry Tart

(I removed the # and the @mention. Which makes it a more clean Facebook post)

Text Message: Booyah! I just scored 29 points in Mr Tart! Think you can beat me?

(For the text message I removed the ~With Blueberry Tart because I feel it's a more clean and personal text.)


=========================

I hope I'm making sense now, I really enjoy this extension and am glad you brought it here. I've been waiting for something like this for a while. These suggestions are just something that I and I'm sure a lot of other people who use this would like to see. If you need clarification on anything I mentioned let me know :)

thanks for making this!

Speaking of donations, we should have a way of crowdfunding extensions to motivate people. ;P

Hey guys, I'm facing a problem. Stencyl can't seem to compile this for some reason. Says build is done but the save part doesn't appear.  But when I remove the extension, It's back to normal. Can you tell me what's wrong guys?

It only works with the beta 3.3 version of Stencyl due to some internal code stuff.

Wait for 3.3 and it'll work :)

Is there any chance we will be able to choose the specific sharing services instead of having them all in there?

Sharing via Pintrest or other similar applications doesn't work, so I'd like to be able to share just via text, tweet, and Facebook post.
