Player Manager

The Player Manager plugin is specifically designed to manage and retrieve detailed player information through the PlayFab service, for games built using Construct 3 and Construct 2.


Interconnected with major platforms including Google Play, Game Center, Apple Login, Instant Games, Facebook, Facebook Instant Games, Steam, Xbox Live, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and of course PlayFab's own profile management system allows you to access, gather and utilize the detailed profile information of players.


Information include player profile, player contact email addresses, account's origin of creation meaning the authentication method in which the player originally created the account, linked accounts from services or authentication methods like Facebook and Google Play, tracked locations, leaderboard statistics, player tags and player value in real currency based on legal tender purchases.


The Player Manager is most useful in making profile pages of players in your application.
