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 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 uploaded and installed the update it seems to run fine.

I limit it to the Admin Group and users inactive for 60 days or less and less then 10 posts and get the following error when I run it as a cron job manually.


Warning: Unable to fetch URL in /includes/cron/miner.gxboxlive.php on line 73
Updated Accounts: 47. Deleted Entries: 0. Process Time: 11s. Total Queries: 56.

Done

Nice work. Just installed the update and works great.

Now all we need is a search function.

Love the new work you've put into this hack.

One question: Is it possible to show the Leaderboard statics on the index page of my forum? I've tried to input "$gxbl_stats" into the FORUMHOME template, but this didn't work

It is not currently possible. I am not sure how easy that would be, I can look into it.

Ah yeah, I forgot that. v1.31 should fix that.

I uploaded the files and overwrote the older version I had. When I view my list, the gamertag icons and games aren't there.
So, I tried to force the cron job to run. When I do so, I get a database error.


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

I looked at my phpadmin and the user table does have a field called usergroupid. So, I'm not sure why it is saying that it is an unknown column.

Also, in the Leaderboard Statistics section, the Top Avatar just reads "By 2 players By 2 players By 2 players By 1 player By 1 player"

That might be because the cron job won't run, however.

I still had the 1.21 zip file, so I went back to that and it that version works. I never updated to 1.30. I went right from 1.10 to 1.31 by uploading all files and overwriting them all and importing the product with an overwrite.

Something in the 1.31 query my database doesn't like. I'll stick with 1.21 until you can take a look and see if you can figure out what might be happening. I know that 1.31 works as I've seen it on other sites that you have linked in the first post.

My host was using php 4.4.2 I was able to change it and tell it to use 5.1.2 but I still got the sql error when the cron job ran. I've since told it to go back to 4.4.2 as the 5.1.2 was causing an issue with searches on my forum.

Hmm, interesting. I will see what I can find out about this. Just in case others have the same issue I have made v1.21 and v1.10 available for download. You should be able to go from any version to v1.31.

For info; I develop on two servers, PHP version 4.3.11 and PHP version 4.4.3.

I got similar DB errors and reverted back to previous version. Now I get DB failures when the cron tries to run...

If you install an older version, you need to uninstall and then reinstall. You can not install an older product over the top of a newer product.
