- More than past three games online previously
Why? What would the purpose be?
- Online since time (Login time)
That could be a nice, simple stat to add.
- Send Messages (maybe a DC-Talk PM option etc)
A simple way for some of this, is on the dreampi profile config page, add a field for "DC Talk" user ID number. That would link to their profile (memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=XXXX
) (just have a link generated replacing their ID in there if they enter it into the profile.
I've been a fan of the wiimmfi approach to online stats:https://wiimmfi.de/game
This would obviously have to tie into the server stats, which full disclaimer I have NO IDEA if the DC servers other than Q3 report active clients. This data could still be populated by DreamPi stats though.
A summary at the top of
Phantasy Star Online: 4 users
- Users online: BLueSS, Bob, etc
Quake 3 Arena: 2 users
- Users online: TacT, fragmachine
It's obvious we are all interested in seeing how the tool can get better, so we like it.
Not sure how much effort it'll take vs the benefits.
