For a public project, hosted on PlayCanvas, what would be the best way to log player activity to a file?
I’m building a text adventure game, à la Zork, and I want to have a way to log the game state and the player input every time the player inputs a phrase that is not recognized by the game. I’ll be able to use that data to improve the text parser after a few players have tried.
I would normally say Google Analytics, Game Analytics or anything similar would work fine if they an export to cvs feature.
Or you can see if you can find a script to add an entry into a Google Spreadsheet which would work quite well (subject to abuse though)
@yaustar Thanks for that. I didn’t even know about Game Analytics. It looks great, and it’s free. Using the Google Spreadsheet API is also a good idea I hadn’t thought of.
You may also want to consider using something like https://jscrambler.com/ to help hide your API key to reduce the possibility of abuse if you decide to go down the route of using Google Spreadsheet API.
