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.*

  • Optionally display leaderboard statistics

  • 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.

So people are reporting issues yet no-one points out the fact that their Leaderboards have failed to update since 18th April? Yup that's right, check yours and you'll find the same.

Yes I noticed they weren't updating, uninstalled and re-installed and everything was blank. Since then I've disabled the hack. The last time mine actually had updated was 17th April.

DaninMS if you have Scheduled Task Logs enabled for the cronjob check in your AdminCP > Scheduled Tasks > Scheduled Task Logs.

No there's an easier way to check. go to the leaderboard and hover the cursor over any of the scores. It should say the date and time last updated.

Microsoft updated the gamercard code a little bit several days ago. It includes a lot more information, including bio, location, achievements info for each game, but doesn't show any of it on the cards without looking at the source code.

So is it possible to get it working? Is there anything we can do to help sort it?

Unlikely, without a code update. Mine hasn't been working either - my users notified me of it.

i get a load of errors when trying to update manually from scheduled tasks

here's an example


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Ok just figured out one of the members did not put a proper live id in, i edited it and it's working fine now

but on that note their seems to be a problem with it updating the leaderboard if their are to many wrong gamercard links in the database? any solution to this?

Also the showing of member xbl leaderboard rank appears to have stopped showing on the thread pages for me? same for anyone else?

I had to make significant changes to the way I parse the gamercards that should be more reliable and easier to fix. It is now using the DOMDocument class, in particular DOMDocument::loadHTMLFile, which honestly, I do not know a ton about but it made things a lot easier, but I'm pretty sure it makes the mod now require PHP5.

If it becomes to much of an issue I will have to try and get the old way to work, but after spending all day on it yesterday and getting two friends to help we could not get the old way to work for some reason.

I may have to make some adjustments for bad gamercards. I have always had a check in for them previously that will blank out the users userfield entry after 5 unsuccessful attempts to get gamercard data, but the new parser may break when there are bad cards, I'll have to look into that.

I still do not have vB4, so I am not fully sure how all the templates are setup, but I wouldn't be surprised if the postbit rank display doesn't work. Not sure if or when I would be able to look into that.
