Create Games in SmartConsole

Here is a guide on how to integrate games or web based content into the SmartConsole Extensions.
The SmartConsole is web-based, so it is very easy to integrate web content.

Important:
- For copyright reasons I do not publish the SmartConsole Extension with a real game.
- I point out that this is only a guide for a test environment.
- Please do not use this in a production environment.
- I think you are also losing Check Point Support.

What do you need as requirements:
- An https-based web server accessible from the SmartConsole

What do you do to install a game:
1) Create a json file with the name game.json on the web server or use this manifest file from me.
     You can download a sample manifest file here: https://www.ankenbrand24.de/ex/game.json 

2) Create a game.htm file on the web server and copy your game into it as html + javascript code.
     At Goggle you will find millions of javascript based games:-)
     Copy the code into the game.htm file.

3) Import an extension:
  - On SmartConsole, go to Manage & Settings > Preferences > SmartConsole Extensions > +.
  -
Enter the web-service manifest URL for the manifest file game.json and click OK.

4) On SmartConsole, go to Gateways & Server > Game
Play your game during the coffee break

The video shows how this looks in the SmartConsole.

A SmartConsole Extension is basically just a website, so you can show almost anything a website does.
For games it is often more efficient to use the toolbar to open a new window and run the web-based game in it.

Hi @Danny,
You have already created many extension that I find very good. Therefore you already have a lot of experience.

I am just discovering the potential of the extension and find the possibilities very good.

As you describe it, they are html and javascript based. That's why I can think of many more crazy possibilities that I want to implement in the next few weeks.

I'm aware of your discovering process. Have fun.. until you disover all the undocumented limitations.

What do you mean? It's not Heiko's game, it's someone else's code.

I was inspired by this article and I thought that something like this must also work in the SmartConsole.
