Is GameCenter support on tvOS already planned, and if so, any hints on the expected availability?

 

Best regards,

Tony

That's most important for us to - I cannot release he apart from that finished version of "Freeze! 2 - Brothers" for tvOS, because it syncs game progress with the iOS version, and of course it has to sync GameCenter, too.

Anyone knows if Corona is working on Game Center for Apple TV?

It's on our list of things to do, but so is a large number of other items. I went to the feature request site (http://feedback.coronalabs.com) and I didn't find any entries for GameCenter for tvOS or IAP for tvOS.

 

+1's in the forums don't provide us any trackable way of knowing what the community wants. I would suggest someone go create a request for this and get people to vote it up. Once I've got some traction here, I can try to get this higher up on the scheduling.

We have an engineer looking at it and seeing what can be done. I don't have a good feel for how long it will take, but it sounds like it's a big time consuming task.

Apple (as our contact told us) want to push tvOS, so the chances to get featured for a normal iOS game are way better if you release the game for both iOS and tvOS, and support Game Center on both platforms. I guess we won't make too much money with the tvOS-version yet (small user base in comparison to iOS gamers), but it's absolutely worth it to release a fully supported tvOS version marketing-wise so Apple will push the iOS version, too.

Its on the to-do list, but we are working on higher priority items at this time. We need to continue to vote on the requests at our feature request site: http://feedback.coronalabs.com

Hey Scott, I purchased the plugin and just about have it working... Game Center loads correctly in Apple TV, but every call to gc.leaderboards.show() loads up only the achievements, not the leaderboards.

Hi Scott,

 

did you answer "borderleap"? If yes, please post you answer here. I will buy the plugin in the next weeks for my "Freeze! 2"-tvOS-version, thanks for releasing it!

 

Best

Andreas

sorry did not answer, using outlook, i sometimes miss emails from forums. Sorry to say "showing" apple's leaderboard pop is not possible due to the fact they don't have a leaderboard pop like they do on iOS or macOS. I recommend making your own custom leaderboard.

with 

local function lis(e)
    print("loadScores")
    print("----------")
    print(json.encode(e))
    print("----------")
end
gc.leaderboards.loadScores("insert leaderboard id here", lis,{timeScope = "today", playerScope= "friends"})
