simpleRegister automatically unique username

Postby JoshuaC3000 » July 25th, 2013, 4:46 pm

Hello, I have a question about simpleRegister:

I would like to be able to have the server create a unique username when simpleRegister() is run in the client.

I tried doing something like simpleRegister(stage,"Game-ID",null,"somepassword","email"... ect.

But of course that doesn't work, at least for me.

Therefore my question is how would I do such a thing? I have had many ideas on how I could, but they seem like so much extra work.

Also, if you wanted to know why I don't need a user defined username directly, it's because I have a server(room) that handles and verifies the username and other data. (Basically a registration setup room)
The player would also login with their email, so the player doesn't need to know this unique "username".

If you're never going to use the username, just generate something unique on the client, a GUID or similar.
