I tried to set up push notification using Firebase Cloud Messaging for my app and I was succesfull ..... to some degree. The problem is that notifications appear for AppGameKit Player and not my app as you can see in the pictures:

This is the code I use in my app to setup notifications:

SetPushNotificationKeys( "SenderID","id from firebase project settings, cloud messaging under SenderID")
result = PushNotificationSetup()
if ( result = 1 )
token$ = GetPushNotificationToken()
// and code that writes notification token into database

and code i use on server to send notification:

function SendPushNotificationAndroid( $deviceToken, $message, $title )
// Replace with real SERVER API key from Google APIs
$apiKey = "server key from firebase settings .....i also tried legacy key with the same results";

// Set POST variables
$url = '';

$fields = array(
'to' => $deviceToken,
'notification' => array( "title" => $title, "body" => $message ),
'priority' => "high",

$headers = array(
'Authorization: key=' . $apiKey,
'Content-Type: application/json'

// Open connection
$ch = curl_init();

// Set the url, number of POST vars, POST data
curl_setopt( $ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url );
curl_setopt( $ch, CURLOPT_POST, true );
curl_setopt( $ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);
curl_setopt( $ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true );

curl_setopt( $ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode( $fields ) );

// Execute post
echo "Sending\n";
$result = curl_exec($ch);

// Close connection

echo "Result: " . $result ."\n";

Anyone has any idea why this doesnt work as it should ? Any help would be appreciated.
Also if you have other ideas on how to get the notifications working I am all ears.

[edit]: problem with pictures

its allot easier for people to read and respond to your code if you place it in code brackets

This is done by clicking the code menu at the top of the editing text window
For code clicking it once then entering your code and clicking it again Using appgamekit for AppGameKit code etc if there isn't a category use the "misc code"

This is pretty cool. I had no idea AppGameKit was even capable to integrate with push notifications. I've only implemented push notifications via native apps or hybrid apps via cordova/phonegap.
