Login system is obligatory?

Posted by AouabAdYT
I'm creating a game , but I already did a login system with my SQL Server , is it obligatory to change everything? It will take forever and I already did some variables (money,diamonds...)
Please help

I'm okay with that,

The problem thought is , i don't really know how to do it in that way, how should I define every client's username, how can i send and recieve my custom variables?

Please see this tutorial for sending and receiving custom variables.

You'll need some way to map users in your database to guest accounts, for example prefixing your user ID with a random string.

Oh thanks!
What i actually did is that when people log in into their database , they are forced to login as a guest with their database name
It might be a good way.

Now i'm having problems with drawing the chat (It draws the chat box but i can't chat)
And also for other player : when i join with two clients , it doesn't draw the other player :/

Here are all the codes :

if test = "ERROR"
    a = "Could not find a server because you may be offline! Leaving the game.."
    z = true
    z = false

Global.sum is the name of the player got from the database after logging in
This action is done while loading into the ingame , not in the game start

Is done at the game start

Here's my chat code:

//This is in objPlayer Create Event

This is in objPlayerInterface (The object that draws the interface) in draw event
//I just copied what is important there is some addionation code...

Oh nevermind,

I just fixed this issue, it's only about the player's username wich he logs in , i think it shouldn't have any spaces , and it is always prefix with "Guest_" right?

How can i disable that?
How can i do so that player's own username is displayed in the chat?

If the users don't have an account, their name will be prefixed with "Guest_". You might need to do some more translation if there is someone that has registered an account with GameMaker Server, as you cannot login as guest with the name of a registered account.

There's no built-in way to change the display name, you'll have to add that yourself.

You may use other login systems if you want to. (obviously only as long as those systems do nothing illegal)

However, do note that GameMaker Server can only do server-side verification of usernames and accounts if you use the default login system.
