Support

I use my released mods daily, if I find an issue with them or add features for myself I will release updates. If there are significant bugs or simple feature requests I will do my best to release fixes. Some of my mods rely on fetching data from 3rd party websites, due to the unreliable results, my mods will require users to troubleshoot for themselves if they find the addon is not working for them specifically. I am offering my personal mods that work ok for me for you to use, I am sorry I do not have time to troubleshoot many user specific issues. Thank you for your understanding.

Hmm, gonna have to let Gryphon get back to you on that one.. i cant understand why your domain is being linked instead of games.


*edit*
Actually after checking, mine are too. lol
I never click on the game icons, but mine are too, so you did it right.

None of my columns are messed up though, just the game icon links.


*edit again*
After checking it out.. only the 2 sports game icons link to my domain, the rest are fine.!? (we recently switched to all sports, so not many of the current active members play MW2 or other games)
And funny thing is i bet that has something to do with my original problem.. I wanted it to update the stats based on my filters, but it never does. if there are only 80 people showing on the leaderboard (because of filters) It still shows 157 people are playing ModernWarfare 2. (in the "Top Games" icons)

I put up a fix for this, import product with overwrite. For column mix up, make sure all templates are reverted.

That's the same problem I'm having. The zones column is missing.

I viewed it with the stock template and it looks the same.

URLs are proper now.

I think they might have removed it purposely.. I dont mind the zones column being gone, i dont think many people care when they select one (and leaves more room for more important info without bunching it all together), but my URL's are still messed up, & i have intalled w/overwrite many times.

I don't care if zones are included either, but it's messing up the table contents.

IE: Games are under the header of Zones and the Games column looks empty.

Yes the game icons now link to xbox.com, if they still link to your domain, the template might need to be reverted?

MS removed the zone information from the gamercard, therefor the data is no longer available to use in the leaderboard.

There should be no zone header, there is none in the product template. Make sure you have reverted any changes to your templates. If you have edited the template previously, it will not overwrite.

Can you clarify? I haven't edited or made any changes to the product at all.

It would be gxbl_bit_game and gxbl_top_games, you should see http://live.xbox.com$game[link] instead of $game[link].

Make sure you have the latest files? I updated the zip but didn't change the version a couple of times within the first day of posting the latest version.

Got it...

AdminCP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> Edit Templates -> gXboxLive Templates

GXBL was highlighted red (customized) although I'd never customized it.

Select and hit revert.

Problem is solved. Thank you.

Ok there is a weird issue going on.. Before it was only the two sports games that were linking to my site instead of xbox, but now that i made the template edits, the rest are double linked..?
Keep in mind ONLY the two sports images are fixed, the rest are now double linked.!?

Would a complete uninstall & re-install help (or hurt) anything.?

It must be from previous gamertags that are now filtered out from the leaderboard. Unfortunately, the only way at the moment to fix that is to clear the data and let it repopulate.

If you uninstall the product it will delete the tables, then reinstall and it will recreate empty ones. However, you will have to enter in all the settings again.

cool. I'll try it.


*edit*
Yup all good now.
The friend invite thing is pointless now right, so we might as well just turn it off.?


I got an idea for future releases.. Can you give the option to list the game icons by x amount across & x amount tall. (or i guess if you list a certain amount across the tall just depends how many you are showing.)

On mine (not sure about other skins) If i list top 10 the list of names (GT's) is lets say 4 inches tall, but only two rows of 5 icons is only about 1 inch tall, so it looks weird with an inch or more of blank white space on top & also underneath the game icons.
If there was a way to set it to a certain amount of them across (or down i guess) we could all show what we want, & make it fit our skin better.
I imagine not a big deal to do, but maybe in the next release it could be an added feature.
