XBox Leaderboard Mod

Post by Extensions Robot »

Modification name: XBox Leaderboard Mod
Author: primehalo
Modification description: Places a leaderboard on your site based around the XBox Live Gaming service. Allows users the ability of choosing a style of gamertage to be shown using one of 15 choices in viewtopic as well as when viewing that users profile. Option in board features to enable/disable the mod as well as turn off gamercards when viewing a topic, allowing the use of XBox avatars as a users avatar as well as a few other options.

Admins can disallow certain users and groups from being able to use the mod via a user permission.

Users can choose to display or not the gamercards when viewing a topic.

Visiting a users profile will allow other users to see the progress of that user in a game (upto the last 16 games played).

Users, if allowed via a board setting, can also set the XBox Live Avatar as their avatar for the forum. Also allows members (via a redirect to xbox live site) to use the Live system to add or send a message to a user that has inputted their gamertag into their profile.

Administrators must have cURL installed on their server (to be able to get the users gamercard data) as well as allow_url_fopen for the simplexml used when viewing a users profile.

This mod requires PHP version 5.

Comes in both prosilver and subsilver2 flavors.

There is a new version of this mod which can be found in this forum.
Modification version: 1.0.14
Tested on phpBB version: 3.0.8

XBox Leaderboard Mod

Post by RMcGirr83 »

Thanks David!!

Features:
  • Allows a user to select from a choice of gamer card format (XBox live, My Gamer Card, My Gamer Card NXE, My Gamercard Mini, My Gamer Card Silverlight) to show in both viewtopic as well as when viewing that users profile.
  • Allows user to be able to use their xbox live avatar as the forum avatar.
  • Administrator of the forum can turn off the showing of gamer cards in topics as well as live avatars. As the images are loaded off site, when Live or MyGamerCard site is down it will slow the loading of the forum. If you know the live service is going to be down (due to "updates"), just disable the mod, the avatars and gamercards until the service comes back on line.
  • Sortable on gamertag, score, user name and zone.
  • Shows the users name, gamertag, reputation, zone, style, score, time leaderboard was last updated for the user and last five games played by the user.
  • Ability to send a message or add a user as a friend (you must be logged into http://www.xbox.com for these features).
  • Checks for a real gamertag so forum uses can't, intentionally or not, enter in a bogus gamertag.
  • Ability to set the number of hours in the ACP until the leaderboard updates. This is dependent upon a user logging into the forum.
  • W3c compliant :)
  • Comes in both prosilver and subsilver2 flavors

Woo hoo!!! Great mod, my community is enjoying it.

If you're still taking requests, I would *love* a way to force people with no gamertag to enter that field the next time they login. Maybe have it as an option in the ACP, and also have the ability to choose "no gamertag".

Congrats :)

Thanks all. :)

BTW, if you have version 1.0.10, you should update to 1.0.11 (in contrib directory) as a few "features" were discovered during validation.

Yes it is possible. You would need to make a new php file and html file.

I would also like to thank whomever for voting on this mod. Gave it a 1 out of 5. :roll:

Even better if it could be added to a variant of the Top 5 mod ;) Makes more sense for it to be in there I reckon
