Indie license / MAU & other questions

Hi Gamesparks team & forum frequenters!


This question comes from a 2 wo/man dev team in Western Australia  :)


We have chosen GS simply for a complete, cross-platform and scale-able leader board solution.


Our current game will only allow paid users to use the leader board feature.  Currently, GS automatically initializes when the game starts for both paid & free-to-players.  Am I correct in understanding that this would be counted as a MAU/DAU although we will not be providing leader boards or any other GS related services for the free-to-player?


If this is the case is it within the expected use of GS that we are able to have full control of when GS initializes enabling us to only be counting players who actually use the services provided via GS?


I look forward to any answers/direction :)

Hi Jeremy


Connecting to GameSparks  will not count as a player, MAU/DAU's are based on authentication. 

A paid player will need to authenticate to use GameSparks.

It doesn't make much sense to connect to GameSparks and then not authenticate.

So you could put the GameSparks object in a prefab and load this based on if the user is paid or free.

Katie
