Scripting 07 - Storage testbed

Scripting 07 - Storage testbed

Scripting in SFD assumes you have a fair knowledge of C#.

The following code demonstrates how to use the local storage feature.

Code: Select all

int timesStarted = 0;

public void OnStartup()
{
	if (!Game.LocalStorage.TryGetItemInt("timesStarted", out timesStarted)) {
		timesStarted = 0;
	}
	timesStarted += 1;
	Game.LocalStorage.SetItem("timesStarted", timesStarted);
	Game.ShowPopupMessage("Times started: " + timesStarted.ToString());
}

public void OnShutdown()
{
    Game.LocalStorage.SetItem("timesEnded", timesStarted);
}
There's 3 different types of storages:
  • Game.LocalStorage - This storage is permanent between server restarts and between different played levels. Data is stored based on the current map/script's file path.
  • Game.SessionStorage - This storage is maintained between games for individual level scripts. This is reset when the server changes to a different map or the server restart.
  • Game.GetSharedStorage("KEY") - Like local storage but globally shared between scripts based on the specified key. Functional in the 1.3.0 update. Use this if you want to be able to store and read data between different scripts. Beware that any script can manipulate data contained within this storage!
