XML Updated - Header tags removed

Postby MrBenn on Tue Dec 29, 2009 7:51 pm

There has been an XML update to the site... but before people get excited, it's mostly technical and involves the removal of some of the header information:
lackattack wrote:<title>, <filetype>, <largewidth>, <large height>, <smallwidth> and <smallheight> are gone and determined automatically. The mapmaker tool has been updated accordingly and will reject any xmls that still use those tags. Anyone can now get dimension information about a map using the API e.g. http://www.conquerclub.com/api.php?mode=map&mp=Africa


While the filesize information is no longer required in the XML, the size restrictions remain in place.

:lol:

Andy posted somewhere that lack was scheduling an update for the XML before 2010. No one believed him. I don't know if this counts.

*sigh*

Because.

In any case, this is a discussion for an other thread...
