So here’s my question for everyone, and a bit of help/guidance on where to start would be absolutely fantastic as I can improvise my own code & usually fix things that need fixing, and even creative my own lua scripts that interact with SQL when needed, but I’m no professional, infact very far from it.
I am currently working on migrating from using enjin, to myBB, the reason for this is so I can integrate the website with the game server. I’d like to be able to identify a player in the server by their account on the website & do things like get their group from the website, and transfer that into the game.
I’m off to a bit of a start, I’ve got the website created, a few basic user-groups, and the ability to log in through steam. The steamid is stored on the web server under the mybb_users with the ID of steam_id and it stores the steamid64 value, it has to be like this as that’s the way the log-in system works.
I would assume my next steps would be make a verification system in-game that can convert their steamid to steamid64 and find it on the web server? Or modify the log-in system some how ( I didn’t make it ) so that it also outputs a regular steamid value?
Maybe someone can point me in the right direction, or give me some information on stuff people have already made that I could look at and learn from to help me with this project.
Thanks in advance!
