Well we can do that, but it will take time for each bounty to finish. And we want changes to come upstream very faster after the site update.

Would be nice if it simply displayed "Random" as the Suggested map for the Random medal rather than listing sooooo many maps - can't tell if it is all of them or only ones I've played before, but it makes the page explode. Otherwise, great addition!

I second this. There doesn't need to be anything other than Random listed for the suggested maps, IMO.

Thanks everyone, pretty cool to win. I considered going for the maintainer thing but I don't actually use the script.

RE Chrome support; Map Rank never supported chrome, it might be pretty easy add to support but I haven't taken a deep look. At the basics it needs the chrome boilerplate greasemonkey function support code added.

That Random medal map recommendation thing is funny. For both Random and Rating it should not show any map. Apparently a condition statement is failing because "Random" != "random". (see lines 715 and 722) Not sure why the case is now different from what it used to be though.

Yes, there are a couple of spots in the code where chipv was loading resources from external sites. Those URLs have been removed or changed or whatever. Probably need someone to figure out what the images are and rehost them somewhere else or, much more simply, completely remove the code that uses the external stuff.

What I want to change/remove:
- No popup any more, but an overlay or something like it (Probably the most controversial, some people won't like this).
- No graphs (at least at first)
- No ratings / display icons options
- Chrome support
- No fetching data twice when still on the same page.
- Easier data model, essentially what you get back from the API (and filling other structures with it as needed).

just curious, why do you want to remove the ratings/display icons options? I like seeing those next to the player's names, so I know at a glance if a game is helping me with my medals.

When I use the "Display Icons" options, they are all giving me that message, not just "Random". I have copies of all the icons, missing the random one though. No clue where chipv got them in the first place.

Good work so far, but hopefully someone just as talented will continue the fixing.

Me too, for all the icons - have to turn them off or go back to the old version. These were always great to have because it's good to know if you've already beat someone for that medal before joining or not.

I second this. I liked that feature.

Also, the new settings don't seem to have affected fog, but I'm wondering if Trench Warfare will be added as an option. Considering I only have 1 unfinished game with that setting, it's no big deal if it doesn't happen soon.

Wish I knew enough about Java to help out. Someone earlier asked how easy it is to learn. As far as I know, it's about as easy/hard as any other programming language.

Just a tip for whoever likes to continue developing this tool, To avoid all future problems with hosted images and etc, we can use URI for images in places of URLs ...

That will make all images built in the script and the script would be stand alone ...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_URI_scheme

So those nice images could be kept without any worrying about the hosting place ...

This is certainly worth considering. Greasemonkey metadata also provides for @resource information which might have a performance advantage, but I understand that Chrome doesn't support it, and it is nice to be able to support multiple browsers with a single script.

Well, BOB ran into trouble because the game page itself changed, breaking the way BOB determined if a game was foggy or not. Map Rank looks at completed games, and the API there has been changed in a compatible way, that is, the information about fog is still a yes/no flag, and Map Rank ignores the new trench warfare yes/no flag (for now). It should be relatively simple to add the Trench Warfare feature to Map Rank (easier than Random was, anyway). If I get some time soon, I will take a look at it. Creating the new icons may be the trickiest part (for me at least).

Agreed. This applies to all games I join. Even more so, it motivates me to beat someone who may already have beat me in similar settings.

"Creating" the icons shouldn't be that tricky. I'm pretty sure all the icons were simply the "metal" part of the corresponding medal. I.e. the symbol but not the ribbon. E.g. crosshairs for assassin.

One day, I came across a page on this site where they hosted CC-related images. I believe the purpose was so that you could have a stable source for a CC image that you want to display here or on another site. I don't remember if there were any images of medals, but if this directory still exists, I don't think it would be too much to ask lack to post the image files of medals there. Then you or someone could just cut off the top half of each one and ask lack to host those symbols, too.

Creating them should take about 5 seconds in any program with a crop function. Hosting them should take about the same amount of time for anyone (lack) with access to the directories.

I really liked the medals when they had them. I used them for some medal hunting a while back. It was a fun break from my usual gameplay.
