Firebase is crazy cool. Plus, you don’t have to worry about scaling to million users :wink: .

I’ve seen it be used so many times. I’ve even used it two times myself!

So let’s see: This guy offers commercial support via email, plug and play functionality in BOTH C++ AND BP!

Heck, I don’t know why somebody would hesitate to get this if he wants to integrate this kind of database in his project. It’s battle-tested gameDNA quality after all :smiley: .

so happy GameDNA is doing this - quality plugins and like Zarkopafilis said, this is a great solution - I wrote my own cloud solution for v1 of my game and I’m dying to switch to this for the above reasons as well

Sounds cool. PS thats one huge *** ipad lol.

Any release date for this tool? I need this as soon as possible.


Yep, interested also in seeing this come out!

You should expect release around May 25-30 :slight_smile:

Also interested! Any idea on price?

Price hasn’t been set yet.

This looks amazing.
Will this also support authentication somehow? Or would all Users essentially have the same access level to the database?

Yes, it will support authentication.

Realtime Database is in QA phase but we detected several major problems in Launcher engine version. In this case, we decided to delay release to June 2017. Sorry about that. We want to release stable and bug-free software so please wait a little longer. Thank you for your patience! :slight_smile:

This is great! I would love to give this a spin asap!

Any news on a release for this?

Still hard working. Thank you for your patience :slight_smile:

Awesome - Really looking forward to this!

I’m SUPER interested in this plugin, sounds like EXACTLY what I’m looking for.

Can I use it to seamlessly sync UFS (the native unreal game file save format) across network connected Windows, Android and IOS devices?

Hi WhiteNorthStar,

I’m very happy that you are interested in this plugin! :smiley:

This is a database, not a file storage. So you will be able to map properties from Save File to Database Fields and sync :slight_smile:

Looking forward to the release, I’ve used Firebase in the past and it would be perfect for an upcoming project.

Hi Is this plugin available ? where can I get it ? thanks !
