Firebase Leaderboard

About

The Firebase Leaderboard template contains a complete player game account solution and a leaderboard with ranking table.

The package includes all assets as well as the Construct 2 source code (capx file).

Important

The Firebase plugins are made by rexrainbow and those plugins do not work with Cocoon’s Canvas+ engine! WebView+ might work, but it’s not tested! So the template is optimized for Web and Desktop projects only!

Screenshots

Please find some screenshots below.

Leaderboard

First of all you need to add your DatabaseURL to the “Leaderboard” plugin. So select the Leaderboard plugin in the project bar…

… and insert your database URL in the corresponding field.

If you want to learn more about the Leaderboard plugin, please check out the developer page.

Ranking Table

The ranking table will be generated dynamically when the On update ranks event gets triggered (basically on startup of the layout and when the user clicks the update button).

If your score is less then the top 6 players, an additional line will be shown with your rank and score.

You can adjust the max. showed lines with the maxLinesDisplayed variable.

There is no need to adjust the code at the es_leaderboard event sheet. Only adjust the variables to fit your needs (max. displayed rows and so on).

Get Player Score

The template fetches the score of the currently logged in user. The score will be shown at the UI bar of the leaderboard screen. You can adjust the text in the FirebaseLeaderboardPlayerScore group located in the es_leaderboard event sheet.

Send Player Score

To send the score to the leaderboard of the currently logged in player, just call the function Firebase.SubmitHighScore() and send the highscore as parameter. See an example below.

The function automatically checks if the score is higher than the one saved in the leaderboard. Only then, the score will be sent to the leaderborad.

Asset

The asset is included in the template and can be changed to fit your needs. However it requires Adobe Illustrator (CS6 or higher) to open the source files.
