Topic: Game Programming / Are in game highscore lists supported now that the Highscore API is deprecated?

Quick question:

I discovered recently that the old method of submitting highscores no longer works – i.e, instead of the old submit(score), you now simply submit your score like any stat (something like submit(score, “Highscores”)) and set that highscore statistic to be a highscore stat when uploading. Great!

However, I’m wondering now if the requestList() method still works, and how you you use it with this method? I’d like to display an in-game highscore list in something small I’m making, maybe an “all time” and “today” list if possible? Does this involve (maybe) using setMode() to set the statistic name? If so, is it possible to retrieve the all time/this week/today lists this way?

This is kinda hard to test because requestList just returns “failure” when testing locally :(

If it’s not possible to do this anymore, that’s ok – just thought I’d check!

Topic: Game Programming / Do high scores need to be approved?

Hmm, nope, tried that and it doesn’t do anything. Though apparently I can work around this problem by creating a different statistic for score and setting it to report as a highscore, which looks like it might work…

I’ve set up the statistics alright – oh! do you mean I have to set up a score one in that list?
