I dont want to display everything, of course ^^, but how do i get the player name, the number of games he played and his score to display it in a webpage in this fasion:
Name Games Played Score
joe blow1 25 9876890
joe blow2 31 8989767
joe blow2 26 7989767
joe blow2 17 5989767
joe blow2 13 4989767
and by highest score because the log doesin't put them in in score order....
please help, i asked the maker because he has one runing already but no answer back, well the game is pretty old so i didn't really expect an answer anyways and tryed to figure it out but i dont know functions in php, this is to include in a php-nuke block (this i know how to do
Seriously if you have a paypal account it would be my pleasure to give you a little something , im not rich but i'll give you what i can....
you can send your info here firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish,, like i said it would be a pleasure because this is actually the first code i know that is tailor made for this classic game server so i thank you VERY much and is very much appreciated ^^
This works great but puts all of the line in playername1,, how do i display only the player name in that field, then in the next the numbers of games he player then after that the score in the next field? or how does the script work?
ok i figured out that $line_arr = explode(' ', $buffer); this is the value that takes in to account that after the space it becomes the next value, but in this log file there is a NUL symbol, what is this?, what can i put between the quotes in $line_arr = explode('HERE', $buffer); to represent that NUL symbol?
ok the problem is that the server removes those NUL symbols and i loose the spaces,, is there a way to read that file with this script while keeping the spaces?
or can i copy this file to the location of this script, covert it to another format and read it,, but how or with what do i convert it?, i know how to copy it with cron and all but what program on an ubuntu server can i use to convert this file to unicode or a format wich keeps the spaces?
kewwwwlll!,, ok i checked the link you provided on the explode() argument but i cant see anything that explains on how to print only chunks of a line, for example mine has 14 values,, but how do i only print the name, the numbers of games played and the score?, because the other values are passwords and e-mails i wouldn't want to display that to the public.....
if you dont feel like explaining can you provide me with the argument i can use to do this?
