Good news! I've finished the first part of the tutorial on creating an online highscore, check it out here
and let me know what you think. I haven't covered any security aspects yet, I thought it best to not confuse the logic of a highscore table with security as someone might want to use their own methods. The second part will cover encryption and preventing cheaters as well as a few extra tricks.
I've redesigned the code to be clearer and more efficient (my original had it loading the table into an array, messing about with it and then saving it back) which has led me to the following conclusion: I hate ASP arrays with a fiery passion that will not die - for example this won't work:Dim a(5),b(5)
But this will:Dim a,b(5)
Ah well, live and learn.
