Live strip...hmm, nice idea. Maybe not as distracting (or as entertaining) as voice-interactive gameplay would be though:

"Oh Kandinski, you're massive. You're taking me. Ohhhhh!!!"

Could open a whole new market.

chipv wrote:Ok, well what lack has done is provide programmers with an easy way to get data from Conquer Club games.

He has written a script which programmers can talk to by using a special URL.
You can add parameters to this URL to get different types of games (for example only tournament games or games from a specific player).

The script returns a file full of data about all the games asked for, such as game number, players, eliminations, and points won/lost.

So for example I could ask this script to give me a file showing data for all games for a specific tournament.

Or I could ask for all of my active games.

Or even show all speed games for any player.

I can then look at this file and use programming to extract all of this data and then use.

For example this greasemonkey script: viewtopic.php?f=59&t=86543

Shows a list of games played and wins for all players in any tournament.
All you do is specify a tournament name and it asks for the data file(s) for that tournament.
The script then looks at all the games in the file and collects the data for each player.
Then it displays it.

So this is an example of how the API can be used.



ok ok i think i gets it :) :)

Great API. Can make tournament management easier.

Missing an information for tournament output:
- The number of round the game last (when point are assign differently based on the number of round a game last).

This is nice!

I have a suggestion for another powerful api: one that returns all current information about an active game:
- Who owns which country and with how many armies
- How many spoils does each player have
- Who's turn is it currently and how much time does he still have to finish his turn
- Which cards do I have: only available for the logged in person of course
- What is the worth of the next set (for escalating games)

Why do I want this information? I made my own private BOB. One which calculates my chances and gives me advice what to do. Currently I have to save the HTML of a game everytime and screenscrape the information out of it.

You would think that someone with your smarts wouldn't need advice from a script in order to play the game effectively.
