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.

Features

  • Lists all ranked Gamertags, each updated once per day
  • Optionally show unranked Gamertags (Original Xbox Users).
  • Optionally allow Xbox Live message sending.
  • Optionally allow Xbox Live friend requests.
  • Optionally to choose how many User Names Per Page to display.
  • Optionally require a minimum post count.
  • Optionally to add a navbar link.*
  • Optionally to add a miscellaneous quick link.*
  • Choose how recently users must be active to be displayed.
  • Optionally display leaderboard statistics
  • Limit usergroups to display.
  • Limit access by usergroup.
  • Optionally display Forumhome stats
  • Optionally display Memberinfo gamercard
  • Optionally display Postbit leaderboard rank
  • Monitors invalid gamertags, 5 attempts to verify the gamertag and then the users gamertag profile field is blanked to prevent further checks.
  • Can link directly to a gamertag position in the leaderboard with gxboxlive.php?gt=Gamertag

*Depends on your vBulletin version and template configuration.

    • Regular Expression: ^([A-Za-z0-9 ]+)?$ (regex not required)
    • The rest of the settings is your prefrence.
    • Save
    • Look and see what the field id number is for Xbox Live Gamertag, example field25.
  4. Fill in the gXboxLive configuration options, make sure to enter the field id for the newly created Xbox profile field above.

I know this is way off topic, but how hard would it be to add a second Custom profile field, and have a PSN (PlayStationNetwork) Name entry and for it to also show PSN name banner on the Profile?

it is very sim..to the xbox one.

For some reason the images of the top three ranks and the send message/send friend request buttons don't show up. What have I done wrong? Here it is: http://gamecolonial.com/gchome/forums/gxboxlive.php

Is there any way to increase the frequency at which it updates? It is still displaying data from yesterday for most of my users - does it not update users except daily? While it does appear to be adding new people, updates don't seem to be that frequent, and I'd like to increase 'em.

It updates the users once over the course of the day. There are many boards using this mod, if everyone had them updating too quickly it would cause more stress on xbox.com risking getting the mod blocked for everyone.

Would there be any possibility behind this causing users to not stay logged in at random points, or possibly creating a cookie issue?

No, I have never heard of such an issue. There is nothing that interacts with cookies or sessions with this mod.

I wasn't accusing haha, just wanted to be sure. I've had one of the worst issues with cookies/login issues that come from the spur of the moment, no real way to tell what's causing it. Even talked with vBulletin & my host, and neither could figure it out.

If you want an example of the thing in action, you can use mine, as I seem to have a lot more than most boards that use this mod (last time I looked it was about 180). I also don't show zeroes.

What's the biggest list you know of using this mod?
