Post [Screenshot/Dialogue] to Twitter or FB??

    Here's an idea! How possible would this be?

    Inspired by Sword & Sworcery, I think tying in games to social media is awesome and not to mention beneficial in spreading the love!

    I wonder if there's any way to take a screenshot while in-game and port it to Twitpic or a Facebook album. Alternatively, just grabbing the text from the dialogue onscreen and posting that with a hashtag is what Sword & Sworcery did, and you can see that people love it.

    Just wondering if anyone else might have experimented with this~

    There is a way to make a screenshot and save it:
    http://wiki_de.visionaire2d.net/index.php?title=CreateScreen...
    But posting it automaticly on social media is not that easy. You need to program the tools yourself. For Facebook it could with the graph api and an app that the users must give permission to post. For Twitter there's also an api, but i never worked with that (don't use twitter myself).
    I believe this can be a lot easier on mobile plattforms, maybe i think a bit about implementing that.

    Awesome, thanks for the swift reply! I'm glad there's that Create Screenshot option. I'll read up on FB's and Twitter's APIs and see if I can do anything with them. * v * Exciting!

    I recommend the new wiki for the commands - I've written working examples for almost all of the available Visionaire Studio player commands. I have no clue about the other stuff you are asking & the only thing I know about twitter is that they recently upgraded their api in some attempt to prevent people using custom twitter feed scripts or so it seems : shakefeckin'fist :

    haha .. er... oh dear! sexy is it?
    still a long way from being finished - lot of content still to write up & currently I'm busy working on other things too.
    I'm hoping we can create a custom skin for it later on as I don't like the ones it mediawiki came with (something a bit nicer like the one of love2d.net)
