Check if score posted to scoreboard is new high score and return that info to scene
When the scoring gadget sends a score to the scoreboard, it would be great if it could bring back on a wire whether that was the new high score or not. That way you could trigger congratulations UI or a win screen, confetti FX etc.
Maybe drop a prize bubble with a trophy in it, though that won't be much use until own creations are allowed in the homespace.
What I’d like is a score gadget that gives something like the top 5 or 10 scores and their PSN name as outputs. You could display scores in game in a lot of fun ways. Or use it to change gameplay. It would be really fun I think.
Oh okay. I thought you may have meant that, wasn't entirely clear though.
That would definitely be handy, could find some interesting uses for something like that.
I think the best way to implement it would be to have an output on a score that gives a number for the current scoreboard position. That way you could connect your own logic and use it in different ways.
I don't mean personal best, though that sounds good too. I mean if the person just got number 1 spot on the scoreboard of the dream. Currently when a player gets a score, the scene has no way of telling whether that is the new top score on the global board or not. It would be nice to be able to tell the player with a fanfare of some type that I could set up.
If you mean a players personal best you could have a score/variable that stores the 'highest score' in the scene. Only overwrite it if the current score is higher then it.
Thanks, yeah I just meant user-created trophies probably wouldn't be of much use in normal scenes outside of displaying them in the homespace - where they are unavailable as you can only use Mm content anyway.
FYI, having collected a prize bubble of someone's private creation means you can use it in a playable scene yourself. Prizes aren't just for use in the homespace.
