Geocaching for the curious.
Every player has stats that can be followed. Instead of going thru the
website, finding certain players and viewing thier numbers I made a simple
HTML page that stays on my computer. The page will pull up small stat bars
for any player I put on the page. When loaded the stat bars give the
lastest player info from the game website. I also made the stat bars a
clickable link to the players profile page which can then lead to a
dedicated stat page, both of which reside on the game website.
Is there a way for my page to tell me when a players numbers have changed?
Perhaps a date showing the last time thier dedicated stat page has changed?
The only method I have now is to memorize each players numbers, then if I
recognize a change, go check thier progress at the game website.
I hope my explanation is clearer than mud. Thanks for reading.
Re: Can this be done
Hmmm, it's a little bit muddy this end. However...
Perhaps the easiest way to achieve what you want would be to store
player's stats in a file, and then compare these with those that are
live on the web site when your page is loaded. Any difference between
the two would indicate that something has changed.
