Thanks Jabor, it must actually be connecting in that case. I’ve realised that setting up a score on Kong only seems to work if you enable the leaderboard option. Odd, as statistics should be useful for things other than just leaderboards.
I downloaded Firebug as you suggested and watched the console but it didn’t seem to return any post or get for my variables. Maybe this only works if done from your own server, or with AS3. I guess if Flash only sets variables in its own space, its not actually posting anything as Kong’s wrapper would do all the work. Hmm… so firebug should be picking up Kong’s wrapper in that case.
