How to access Azure database from GameSparks

 Hello,


I am developing a real-time multiplayer quiz based game, all the quiz questions are stored in the Microsoft Azure SQL database. From the GameSparks, once the two players are matched, how do I send the questions (from Azure) to both players


Thanks,

Manson.

Hi Manhson,


Apologies for missing your response. How much data are you currently storing ? Text questions and answers should be fine to store on GameSparks but we would need to have an idea on size before confirming. If you needed to continue to store your files on Azure you could create a custom collection that stores a reference to the questions and then load them from Azure when required.


Thanks,

Liam


Anyone has the answer ?

Hi Manhon,


What have you got stored on Azure ? If the questions are just in text form you could easily store them on GameSparks. Are you storing anything else in relation to the questions on Azure ? Images, Videos etc... If you can go into a bit more detail about your game we can point you in the right direction here.


Thanks,

Liam

Hello Liam, The data on Azure stored as SQL based records, each record includes question level, question category, question itself, 4 choices, correct choice and an image ..., for each play round, 10 questions will be querried randomly abd then push to the matched players ... So can I host my SQL database on Gamesparks? What the storage limit?
