RPG Playground 0.2 is a fact
I just put the new release of RPG Playground online, which features a login and registering system. Unfortunately logging in doesn’t have any real purpose yet, but it’s the first step towards saving levels, since that will require you to log in.
I tried to make it as easy as possible to create a new account on RPG Playground, and I think the final result is perfect. You can read more about it in my previous blog post.
Fortunately for you, I also added some real functionality, although a small one: You can now switch to fullscreen mode by using the fullscreen button at the bottom right.
Implementing this release was a heavy one. My plan was to include saving and loading levels in the 0.2 release, but this functionality requires a login framework, which also includes password resets etc. So first I worked on the login system, but this alone already required a vast amount of work. I didn’t have any server code yet, and my GUI framework was build for games and not really for GUI heavy programs. So it took me some time to implement the entire framework.
I wanted to include the saving and loading levels in the 0.2 release, but since it took so much time, I’m now releasing the login functionality first, and the saving and loading levels will be for the next release (Since I now have the main framework running, this shouldn’t take so much time)
So try the new version, and see if you can register and log in: http://rpgplayground.com.
