Are there any programming interfaces for getting player info related to active games, rather than screen scraping http from winbolo.net?

I'm building a game tracker for Windows and would like to add that as metadata.

An RSS feed exist that contains the current games: http://www.winbolo.net/rss/current_games.xml

More details can be found in the latest news post.

There has been some discussion on IRC on combing the tracker and WBN data (removing the tracker and using WBN only) The wiki also contains a page on some ideas for Tracker Version 2 data.

Warpig, why not just build in your enhancements to the Winbolo code itself and fix up the built in internet tracker? Winbolo is open source you know Smile

Too many dependencies to other people and a code base on old school programming style. Feels like the 90's looking at that code. I would rather make it loosely coupled with WinBolo.exe and take advantage of the new century.

Warpig, it looks great, a lot of really useful features. I've been wanting to do the notifications like that. But it would be better if it was built into Winbolo itself!!

i have downloaded this tracker and i do like the alerts it give out.

also its nice an tiny so i dont have to have my browser open.

your not my fav. player warpig but, i do like this tracker.

props.

as for this nemo min bullshit. im not gunna pretend like i know how to do any of this stuff.

but if i did, i wouldnt want anyone telling me what to do with my time when doing this boring shit. I also would take it as an insult when someone does so. As i think u did min.

i think u both have valid points, but you bring it to such an exstream no one wants to bend in ANY way.

take tank speed for instance. its slow now, lots dont like it, some do like it, and the rest ajust to the change.

this outcome has been forseen and since such an tiff has been brought up and players have quit because of this it "was" being changed correct?

this is how its suposed to be.

all im thinking is that u 2 just hug it out.

let min code this fucker how ever the hell he wants and if the rest of the community hates it, seems to me like an easy fix if he is willing.

but i dont think u should criticize something so deeply until your looking at the finished product.



Cool
