Felgo 2.8.3 is now available for download and as a free update to all Felgo users. This update introduces the new Felgo Game Center Plugin and a number of minor bug fixes. The Felgo Game Center Plugin is included in the Felgo Indie License and is the perfect extension to the Felgo GameNetwork.
If you’re not an existing Felgo user, you can download the SDK for free.
Felgo GameCenter Plugin
The Felgo Game Center Plugin creates a social gaming network for your Felgo games. The Apple Game Center is a widely used gaming service that comes pre-installed on all iPhones and iPads. With this new plugin, you can take advantage of the highscores, leaderboards and achievements supplied by the Apple Game Center.
Even more, you can connect the Apple Game Center with the Felgo Game Network to get synchronized leaderboards and achievements across multiple platforms. This means your players can use their familiar iOS game service and compare their progress with players on other platforms like Android or PC.
This multi-platform support is available with just a single API call from the Felgo Game Network: a call of reportScore() or incrementAchievement() automatically posts to both gaming services. This allows your cross-platform game to grow a community open to both Android and iOS users alike.
These features make it a valuable tool for increasing player engagement in your game. You can find out how to integrate the Felgo Game Center Plugin into Felgo Game Network here.
Felgo 2.8.3 features fixes for a number of minor bugs. These changes affect both app and game development.
- It’s no longer required to change the AndroidManifest.xml file for existing projects if you don’t use plugins in your project, as it was with update 2.8.2.
- Fixes a possible error output that module “QtQuick.Dialogs” could not be loaded if using Felgo Game Network components.
- A memory leak in the Chartboost Plugin has been fixed
