Hello,
I assume there are some of developers here, I just wanted to know that if there is an easier way to get the server online status indicator customized.

Processing the sessions page is an option i considered, but its a hard task if you run multiple servers, and well image processing the image generated by fsopen is a stupid thing(but that would work too) to even think about.

I tried contacting dave on this matter, didn't get a respond.

You might be able to extract the status from the json data provided by Dave.

This was developed entirely on that data.

If you didn't get a response, it may be because he might have been away at the time you sent your message OR he never got your message OR he did respond but you didn't get the reply (internet failure...does happen trust me) OR it may be that he HAS taken your message on board and is figuring it out, then once figured out he will get back to you with an answer.

Don't forget, Dave is the ONLY person with the know-how of all the software created for us simmers, so when there is only a one-person operation in process, you have to give them time to work things out and test them BEFORE you get an answer.

In other words, hang tight and you'll get your answer.

JSON (canonically pronounced /?d?e?s?n/ JAY-s?n; sometimes JavaScript Object Notation, is an open standard format that uses human-readable text to transmit data objects consisting of attribute–value pairs. It is used primarily to transmit data between a server and web application, as an alternative to XML.

In other words, Dave provides data in a format that anyone can read if they know how!

if the results of the above does not contain your server name string - then it's offline...

and....

http://www.fsopen.co.uk/db/json/online/version1.php?HostID=xxxx (xxxx is your host ID)

this is grrrreat for data farming!

Hi Kishshey,

As Tim has said & im sure Dave has in his email, you can do what you're trying to achieve using json.

Something you may be interested in is explain in another thread:

http://www.fsopen.co.uk/forum/posts/listposts.php?threadid=3452

It's just a little tool I made some time back that may be of some use to you, maybe not.

Regards,
Joe
