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

I'm getting the same error.

It doesn't seem to matter what page I'm accessing when it happens. Is there any chance there's a fix that I missed?

Not sure what you mean, you should only see that if you run the scheduled update, you should not see it anywhere else.

Scheduled update? It shows up all the time. For example, when the "who's online page" auto refreshes. Do you have any idea why or what can be done to fix it?

Well the fix was simple enough. I just rescheduled the updates to run at 1:00 AM instead of every 10 minutes...seems to do the trick.

Thanks Gryphon

Made a tweak to the cron file, may solve this issue.

Shoot. Do you have the gxboxlive.php, miner.gxboxlive.php for your 1.34 version? I didn't realize until I uploaded the new versions that the latest release wasn't compatible with vB 3.64. Or will those two files not cause an issue if I have the 1.34 product installed?

I think the only issue may be the copyright line may be offset since I added a column.

It is compatible with any 3.6 version, however the navbar links are only automatically added in version 3.6.6 and up assuming you have updated templates to include the $template_hook variables.

If you are using a version prior to 3.6.6 you can edit the navbar template and manually add a link the leaderboard.

When I tried to import the product with the overwrite option, it gave me a warning message stating "The following dependencies were not met:

1. This product is not compatible with version 3.6.4 of vBulletin. (Compatible starting with 3.6.7)"

The 1.34 version does what I need it to do, but I guess unless I update vB I may not be able to keep this product installed to the most recent version?

I did the manual navbar edit for the earlier version of this product as I wanted it in a different area of the navbar.

I've seen this a couple of times, but currently the icon is showing on at least my 3 example sites listed above. It is not limited to the leaderboard as the icon goes missing from the gamercards as well. Could be you are randomly accessing a xbox.com webserver which doesn't have the icon mirrored.
