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.

Ok I did that then clicked edit on a few of the results but there's nothing to edit.

Put what you want it to be called in the bottom box and press save.

You should be editing the two in the Global phrases section. The top three are for the admin panel phrases.

I assume you gave some time for the cron to run?

Mine hasn't updated in several days. I've tried to do it manually, but every time I do, it comes up with an error saying that it can't fetch the gamercard data from gamercard.xbox.com. I've even tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but it hasn't done any good. Any idea what I should try next?

What is the exact error? It is also possible that your server can not resolve the xbox.com domain as well.

If it needs to be resolved, how would I go about doing that? It's weird because it worked just fine up until about 2 days ago.

Warning: fsockopen() [function.fsockopen]: unable to connect to gamercard.xbox.com:80 in /includes/class_rss_poster.php on line 95

Warning: Unable to fetch URL:http://gamercard.xbox.com/#######.card in /includes/cron/miner.gxboxlive.php on line 95

Actually two things I want to ask you.

1. I have done the instructions perfectly to install the Xbox Live Leaderboard and yet it is still not working, why?

2. Is there any possible way to rename it in the navi bar and quick navibar?

First of all great mod. We are a very large professional gaming clan with a large Xbox userbase. Currently we have 831 gamertags in this list of the mod. http://www.pmsclan.com/forums/gxboxlive.php

A few feature requests if possible:
1) Is there a way to limit which usergroups it pulls this profile field from. We have way to many people in this list and we would rather just pull from our clan member usergroups

2) Is there a way to hide the reputation column? Everyone has 20 and there is no need to display it

3) Is there a way to add a icon for message the user and add the member instead of text. When you have those options turned on it is rather large column.

Thanks a lot for your help!

theorigin, I can't be sure what is causing that. It appears that your server is not resolving the domain name, that is beyond the scope of this addon, I don't really know where to start telling you how to fix that.

AsiletFart02, 1) I need more info, I don't know what isn't working for you. 2) That is managed by phrases, it was documented on page 4 of this thread.

Athena PMS, 1) Not currently, but I could implement that. It currently pulls all users, even banned users. I ran into some trouble coding that portion, it is on my todo and I will add limiting usergroups. 2) I could make an option, there is none currently. You can edit the template to remove the column until then. 3) There should be icons for them and reputation which is broken, you are probably using Firefox (which lamely hides broken images, I hate that, grrrr), but you should upload the images to your styles misc folder.

Oh yes I had the images in the wrong folder (we designed a custom skin). Now it is better thanks for the help .

Looking forward to the new usergroups feature.

Thanks a lot!
