fofchart.com updates

Postby techiefIve » Sun Mar 28, 2010 4:10 pm

I'm starting this thread specifically for Divra's charts (which I'm now hosting at http://www.fofchart.com) so that there is a place dedicated to the upkeep and modification of his charts.

With Divra's permission, I'm currently working on adding some new features to the charts so that they will be even more fun and will give us a better idea of where we stand vs the rest of the world. Unfortunately I'm not perfect so I do make mistakes like everyone else, but in order to keep my mistakes from affecting all of you, I'm working using a beta chart that's separate from the one you'll be using. Once I've got a new feature/improvement hammered out, I'll go live with it on the main site. I'll be announcing here when changes will go live as well as what to expect.

If I screw up and launch a feature that has issues, please let me know what went wrong as soon as you notice. Hopefully this won't ever happen, but if it does, I'll reverse the changes and try to figure out where I went wrong.

Anyway, here's what I've got going on right now:

    1. I'm adding support for more games like RB: Beatles, GH: Metallica, etc.
    2. After that I'll try to setup a cronjob to update the players/medals nightly.*

*I may not be able to do this though so don't hold your breath. As it is, updates have to be done manually because they timeout and we have to resume where it left off.
I'm the administrator of http://www.fofchart.com so if you plan on hacking it, please let me know in advance so I can make a backup.

I also run http://www.techiefive.com but so far, it's just a stupid graphic on an ugly bgcolor. Feel free to hack this one.

Sounds great! The charts make the game a lot more fun IMO. Thanks for working to improve the already great charts we have.

#2 on your list would be awesome if you could make it work.

Adding more games? Do you mean the chart will not only be for FOF but for the other games too?

I'm having some issues with updating the users database, so for now there won't be any player updates. Scores will still upload and you'll still get credit for them, but you individual player page won't reflect the changes yet. I'm working through the code tonight trying to find the problem, but since Divra coded it, this could take a while. Thanks for being patient with me.

Thanks for bringing up the charts! I've been wanting to upload my scores for a while.

Also, might be a stupid question but, how do I upload to these charts? I can't find the fretsonfire.ini anywhere.

Yea, this folder is NOT in the FoFiX default directory. For Win7/Vista, you can find it here:

C:\Users\<Username>\Appdata (To see the Appdata folder, you have to make hidden folders viewable.)\Roaming\fofix\fofix.ini

Scroll down to the uploadurl_w67_starpower =
Change it to uploadurl_w67_starpower = http://www.fofchart.com/uploadsp.php

Thanks man, its a little different for XP users, but I found it.

For XP its the same thing but this path;
C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\fofix

Application Data is a hidden folder, so make sure you have Show Hidden Folders on.

OK, so here's the current status of things.
I'm currently unable to update the database. Moving the site to the new domain has caused an unexpected problem with the update script and I'm trying to find the error. So far it's eluded me but I'm still trying to find the glitch. I'm going to have Divra look through the code too and see if he can find it since I haven't had any luck yet. If there are any great php coders out there that want to give it a look, feel free to let me know.

I have a "beta" version of the site up so if I break something worse than it already is, it won't have any effect on users. Once I find the glitch and fix it, I'll be updating the code on the main site to match and will start working on some of the upgrades I mentioned earlier.

For now, all I can say is sorry about the lack of updates and keep your fingers crossed for a quick fix. Not really though, crossing your fingers will make playing FoF a little difficult. :tongue:

God if only I found this when it started...
I've had wembly's link since ever and since it broke (it was like a year ago!)
And I've just found this today... Oh... so many songs I wanted to highscore or at least see how good I was...
But no matter, I should start it all over again. LOL :cursing:
