it was implemented as SharedVariables
something that became an issue after implementation was cross-site cookies
doesn't provide for while sites like itch.io run the games in an iframe (and the game itself is hosted on another site) but thanks to tboy, the fix was easy
for my 2020 lowrez jam game
and continues to work without issue.
if you're self-hosting, you shouldn't have to make the change.
worth noting, as hosch mentioned in an earlier post today
, "general cookie size" is limited to 4096 bytes so, depending on what you're trying to do, this may present an issue.
