Hi everyone,

I have written a plugin for integrating better with Windows 8. (Probably I should have posted in this forum instead of this tutorial, but I will leave it there)

Please let me know what you would like to be added.

The plugin is now capable of making use of Windows 8 roaming store. The new interfaces are again same as WebStorage plugin and now the data stored by your game roams to all the Windows 8 PCs owned by an user!

@iunkn
Great work .

Maybe you need to change 'Metro' to 'Modern' :
"Microsoft has started to notify its Windows developers that they should refrain from using the word "Metro" throughout their applications if they refer to the Windows Phone or Windows 8 interface" (ref.)Velojet2012-08-31 20:21:03
