Archievements for the latest games, why none/when coming?
« on: August 17, 2010, 20:39:41 »
Okay, first, to the tiny group of people out there who don't know what archievements are, i'll explain it right here and now. As well as how they work.
You can get archievements here.

Okay, back to the point. So, as we all know, there are archievements for 16 of Nifflas' games. That is, if you count TTP and Pteranodon as the same game.

However, Nifflas made some more games: R-Type three-point-blah, Saira, Find Love, FiNCK, and Type.

So, out of curiosity, i have one question:
Archievements for the latest games, why none/when coming?

If memory serves, LPChip made them back when this forum was created (because the old one died) I kinda assume that he hasn't updated it because 1: Not a lot of people use them. 2: He hasn't the time.
Of course, without an official answer my guess is as good as yours, but...

Also not to be knytt-picky, but it is 'Achievements'. (no r)

I would've updated them myself if i had written (typed?) permission of the Admins and a bit of knowledge about those. But the chances of me becoming an Admin just to make a minor edit is less than Jonbro making a Riddle School 5.
Also, your guess is better than mine.

I know, but when i saw it, i thought it was a typo.
Also, not to be nit-picky myself, but i don't think knytt-picky is a great pun, since knytt is pronounced with a hard k, not a silent one. Or is that pun supposed to be like that?

Many people say nit instead of knytt. I'm not one of those, but I find the pun interesting so I used it. That's not really the goal of the topic though, so all I can really say is that you'll probably have to wait for LPChip for any real word on this. (and I wouldn't expect the answer to be 'soon', since it rarely is)

1. Learn a bit about HTML and putting arguements in a URL.
2. Create an image changing thing like on the forum.
3. Put it on your website.
4. Put it in your signature with a [img] tag. Oh, and possibly a [div] as well.
5. ???
6. Profit!!!!
Lurk more.

updating the images is not that hard, but I forgot about the archievements.

I also was under the impression that besides me, no one was really using them. The system I wrote is not finished, and seeing how little it is being used, I am not planning to do that anytime soon.

In order to add a game, I need to add an image in a directory, and write some settings in an ini file. (yes, I programmed it that good)

I do have all the images because I used the same as the forumindex before I made this change. Still have them in my backup.

I currently don't have time to look into this though.

But I suppose if enough people want this, I can add it when I have some time.

How much is 'enough'?

Does that mean the 'tiny group of people' i wrote that archievement what/how/where thingy for is bigger than i thought?

Oh, and possibly a [div] as well.
What's a [div]?

Evidentally not in BBC code. :/

I suppose a handfull would do. A hand has 5 fingers. so 5? :)

Lets just say, the more people use it, the quicker I'll do it :P
