Registration and Saveupload
« on: March 30, 2014, 11:58:50 pm »
hey there, there was nowhere really to put this, so i guess general discussion is right. i found this new feature for uploading saves, nowhere is really documented how this works, it asks for a login and password for some kind of account, so i figured i need one on the main page (ufoai.org). i thought i might be able to play my games anywhere. even if i don't bring my computer along or just have some sessions on my laptop without some tedious usb stick runarounds.
so when i went to ufoai.org i found this nice login button in the top right corner of my browser window. but that's it. i can't register. when i checked special pages there was a category "log in / register", though only log in was listed there, on that page i couldn't register either, even after entering none or invalid credentials. i could register in the forums though, thought that would work, but it seems a different account management system or something like that. this account doesn't work for that.
so long story short: where do i register to use the feature to upload the saves, teams, etc?
also: would be nice if the devs could put some kind of custom field for user specific ftp server and directory there, maybe with some kind of memory function to select different ones from a list. of course this would be pretty low priority.

nevermind, it seems that the forum's account information seems to be what is needed.
sorry for posting garbage. still it should be explained more obvious somewhere

Yes - you are right - documentation is currently missing about that feature. If you use it, I would be interested in some feedback about it (using it, not logging it - I will try to improve that asap  ;))

btw. here is some (hidden) documentation about it - not enough, but at least a start: http://ufoai.org/wiki/WebAPI
