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.

No, s/he wants extended information not available in the gamer cards which is currently where gXboxLive gets it's information from.

There is more information available, like offline/online status, if you login to xbox.com with your credentials that this mod cannot currently do.

*Edit: After re-reading the your post, I see you are directing the comment about the postbit display.

Sorry it's taken me a while to get back.

Looks like rev 540 to me. Was certainly getting errors. Now I'm not. Pretty comfortable with the alt tags appearing, actually, now they're not causing issues with the SQL.

Is there (or will there be) an easy way to exclude banned users, or members of specific groups?

Hmm, I am not sure why this is still coming up. Make sure you have the latest files. I will look into this again.

I started the code for this, but there are still some bugs I have to work out.

Is there a lag with populating the 'gxboxlive.php'? I added two users with gamertags and nothing's come up yet.

It is in the gxbl_bit template, replace $player[url_gamertag] with your field id.

I'm sorry if this has been answered. I've not had much luck finding it.

I installed this a few weeks back and love it. It was working great and it was nice to have, even if there were only 5 people on the list.

However, I checked it out again today and now it only shows one person. The other four are missing... I checked every one's profiles and nothing has been changed. Any idea what happened...?

Xbox.com is having some issues displaying their gamer cards currently. You will have to wait out their problems.
