Stats Signature

edited April 2009 in PVKII Server Stats
I've made one.
Yarr, here we go! Stats from PVKSTATS.CO.UK in a signature!


Just visit http://jbnc.net/stats/!


Before everyone starts putting in their steamid and creating signatures, please keep in mind that I pay for that hosting's bandwidth so if anyone wants to host the script, contact me. wink.gif

Also, I know it ain't that pretty yet, but I focused on the functionality more than the design.. If anyone wants to contribute by designing a better background, suggest fonts, etc.. Feel free to do so.

A preview of the "Default" style can be seen in my signature.
Signature Coming Soon.

    Thank you. smile.gif

    EDIT: Thanks to my nifty quick htaccess rewriting the old url (http://jbnc.net/stats/index.php?steamid=STEAM_0:1:13732759) is the same as:

    Sure, with different GFX too. What dimensions do you have in mind? I am a little busy though I might be able to get it done.

    UPDATE: I have now changed the URL structure and seperated the code into different PHP files so that creating new styles for signatures will be a lot easier.

    Fine by me, I'll even make you a data feed so you dont have to mess about with scraping the profile.php page.
    I'll post here when I'm done.

    Yeah sorry to say, it took me a while to manage the parsing. biggrin.gif And XML feed would be a lot easier for me to manage.

    Later I'll set up a page so that you can just put in your SteamID, select a style and it will give you code both in HTML and BBCode for you to copy and paste.

    You ok with JSON instead? (hint: json_decode() does all the work). Its more compact and nicer to work with.

    I've never really worked with JSON but I'm willing to give it a try.

    Also, here's another quick example sig I cooked up which took me about 10 minutes..

    Update: The data is no longer parsed from the page's html but is now obtained using the JSON feed Chilly created.

    Alright the code for that is the same as the other except you replace "default" with "smallblack".

    Also, I'll be creating a page to generate the code by entering your SteamID and preview the different styles.. So don't worry.

    Can I make more styles for you?
  • Rapid-FireRapid-Fire Senior

    I'll make some too, just need size details? and what ever else you want adding.

    The size details can be anything you want.. If you're using photoshop feel free to send the PSD with dummy text for name and info (oh and font you're using).. For a complete idea of the info I can put in there's this:

    http://jbnc.net/stats/json.php

    Not only do I allow you to make styles, I encourage it. I'm not much of a GFX artist so, you'd be helping me and the community. smile.gif

    A cool idea would be to make 3 styles, one for each team then an extra style which will automatically use the background image of the team where you have the most kills. If you're a confident PHPer I can also release a template so that you can do the coding too.. ^.^

    So, has anyone come up with any styles?

    It would be neat if there was a picture of your most played class/team as the style. So if your most played class was the Captain, it would have the Captain model's upper half in the signature.

    I have a rough concept idea of the whole dynamic stats thing.

    Here is what the three different styles would look like:

    I would leave the coding up to Bojero since I know nothing of php. Depending on which team you have the most kills on is what shows up. Any feed back on the layout/size of my concept would be appreciated.

    Anyone want a badass Hulk Hogan signature?

    Had another simple idea:

    Those are pretty nice. Have an exam this morning, will try one out later. Of course you have to give me versions of those with no text on them and tell me what fonts you used, etc. Add me to Steam, I'll be on later. My steam username is Bojero.

    I'm about to go out anyway. Later wink.gif I like how one of the styles you made is for your PVKII server. Someone should make one for Island Party! ^.^

    Here are my pictures with the generated text removed.

    The Dynamic Signature:

    image
    image
    image
    FONT DETAILS: 14 point white Calibri. You should already have it on your computer.

    The Hulk Hogan Sig:

    image
    FONT DETAILS: The main content area of the sig uses 18 point red Calibri. The top area where the name will be displayed is red 36 Point Craiges Wrestlemania XIX font (LINK: http://www.tombstonemedia.com/wrestling/wwe_fonts.htm. It's the 2nd one from the bottom on that page.
    OTHER: In my design I had a picture of the vikings 2 handed axe next to favorite weapon. I thought that would be a cool little gimmick instead of just text but if it's not possible or just a pain in the ass don't worry about it.

    The Scroll:

    image

    FONT DETAILS: The font I used for the stats area was 24 point Knights Quest (http://www.dafont.com/knights-quest.font ). I don't care what font you use for the players name above the line. The font you used on your original design would probably look good. The players name should be displayed above the line in the center.

    I cannot retrieve hook kills yet, Chilly would have to add that to the feed. Started working on the Hulk Hogan one. I had to use a font size of 14pt instead of 18pt on the content for it to look right.. :S as for the weapon image, I could try that but later..

    I'm going to take a while with those signatures, may even be some weeks. I've got exams.. and in two weeks time they're pretty tough.
