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

Go to your vBulletin options and click on the Search in Phrases section in the left column.

Add users to your friends list button? Do you have your passport account setup for your Xbox.com login and your Gamertag associated with it? You need to login to Xbox.com to add friends.

Possible yes, but it will require some available time for me to code this. It is not a simple matter.

It is not possible at the moment, the statistics are only created when viewing the leaderboard.

Not currently. The ranks just count row numbers currently, they aren't associated with players, which is why the ranks column hides if you sort by any other method. A search feature may be possible after I add ranks to the profile.

I answered you by PM before seeing that you posted here also. Please, it is not that dire of a problem that required you to ask your question in multiple places.

As answered by PM, and for the benefit of others; this is a problem with the current layout I have yet to fix. A possible fix would be by creating a new column for the avatars.

This looks a fantastic mod, thanks for all the hard work Blackjack!

I'm about to try installing it on my forum. I'm a new vBulletin user and this will be my second attempt at installing a mod (the first one didn't work but hopefully this one provides more luck hehe).

One quick question; I was actually looking for a way to allow users to put their Gamercard in place of their avatars, will this mod do anything along those lines too? I love the leaderboard idea and will be installing it, but I would like to put gamercards by peoples names viewable when reading threads. Any ideas?

*update* installed, it works! *thumbs up*

It will only show users who have entered a gamer tag, it will not show all users. Where is your installation, and what is your gamertag?
