How to add news and notifications to your Title Pack

Post by gouxim » 07 Apr 2014, 09:55

Much hello,

The default MP3 station overlay is evolving with two new features:
* Official news
* Notifications

Official news

You can now display an official newsfeed on the station. It uses maniaflash as backoffice. It will be visible by everyone who installed your title, even if they havn't bookmarked your maniaflash channel.

To enable this on your title, follow these trivial steps:
* Create your maniaflash channel
* Go on the title admin page at https://player.maniaplanet.com/titles/
* Specify your maniaflash channel ID in the dedicated field
* You all done! Your station will display the last 3 messages with a media (image or bik video).

You can see it in action on the Elite station!

Notifications

Players now see their notifications for a title directly on the station. It will display the maniahome notification with the right Title Uid defined in the notification. Therefore it is applicable to only a little content at the moment. For instance, solo record notifications when someone in one of your groups beat one of your official record.

What about both?

No problemo.

In screenshot#2 the blue tracktimes are totally unreadable to me... This should be fixed.
I like the added functionality as always and I believe it could be interesting.

so :thumbsup:

The design is a different story. :(

Finally i can remove station manialink from Invasion cause i have now more powerfull tool :D

But as Dreammy says - design of menu is still needed to improve. Imagine how will look "multiplayer" button with polish translation "gra wieloosobowa", or even solo: "jeden gracz".

How can I deactivate the Official News Overlay for my Title Pack?

The posted link https://player.maniaplanet.com/titles/ doesn't work any more and the Title Manager of the new player page doesn't have a command to manage the maniaflash channel ID.

If this is not currently possible, how can I remove all my published news?

Hello,

You can not disable the overlay if you made your title with a title maker. To post a new flash in your title you have to post it from the Flash Manager on the new player page.

I hope it will help you

My title pack was not made with a title maker. So, how can I disable the overlay?
To post a new flash in your title you have to post it from the Flash Manager on the new player page.
I want the opposite (remove the channel or remove a news flash on a channel).

Both were possible in the past (activating the overlay on the old player page and managing the news on the Maniaflash manialink).
Please make this available to us again.

Until then: Is there a way to manage my Maniaflash channel using the Maniaplanet Web Services SDK for PHP (ManiaFlash.php)?
