  • Server banners inside forum (Greasemonkey script)

    http://www.tacticalgamer.com/armed-a...te-server.html

    It looks this idea started right here, so here I am just trying to help.

    I'm posting this for every game that Gametracker tracks that we have here so apologies if you see this in every forum. I don't know how you guys check the server status, but I thought it might be easier to just have the Gametracker banners right inside the forum for easy viewing. Here's a screenshot to show what I'm talking about.



    You'll need Firefox along with the Greasemonkey extension which you can download here.
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748

    And here's the script - serverBannerArma.user.js

    Alternatively you may position the banners either on the left side or right side or just keep it centered. To do that you need to edit the script on line 10 and type in either left, center or right. Let me know if this helps at all.

      I have no idea what this post is about. Could you elaborate, please? :-)

        Sure I'll try. You need the Firefox web browser for this to work.

        Next you will need the Greasemonkey extension. Greasemonkey is an addon that "allows you to customize the way a webpage displays using small bits of JavaScript."

        But this will only be seen on the client end, meaning your browser only. So basically we can add, delete, or modify anything within the webpage we want. These are called scripts. If you can click on the script above (assuming you've already installed Greasemonkey) there will be a popup asking you to install the script. After you've done that, refresh any page within the forums here, and you should see the TG Armed Assault Gametracker banners, like I've shown in the screenshot. (the screenshot shows our BF2 servers, but the ArmA ones will appear for you).

        Let me know if you need any more help.

          For anyone using Firefox 3 Beta 5 this plugin does not currently work with it, but the maker is in the process of updating it.

            I got these, and where can I find the BF PR one?? And can I use both at the same time?

              Just edit the script file. Find these lines:

              // add any server from the list above
              div.innerHTML = armapub + armapriv;

              and change armapub + armapriv to bf2pr + bf2poe. All server have a var entry for them, making it quite easy to customize.

              I haven't actually tested it, but I assume it should work.

                Yes Shafik is correct. Look for that line, which is line 48. So for example, if you wanted both Armed Assault servers and the BF2 PR server to show up just edit the line to this. To add more servers, just find the variable name up above. I tried to make them clear.

                Code:
                div.innerHTML = armapub + armapriv + bf2pr;
                On mine, having more than 4 banners up top doesn't wrap too neatly to the next line, so keep that in mind since I didn't account for that.

                  I wanted to bump this thread for a bunch of the new guys and people that have been AFK for a bit. I use this to check the server constantly and see who and how many are on. It really works well. I think if more people had it installed and therefor had a quick way to see if people were playing without loading up, more would jump on.

                  If you have any questions about it or getting it working, there are a lot of very smart guys that would be glad to help. Please ask for help, cause only a noob sits there quietly and doesn't say so when he needs help trying something new.

                  And if you aren't using firefox, what on earth is wrong with you? :D:icon_razz

                      Have been meaning to BUMP BUMP this thread for a while.

                      This is really easy to do, and makes it so easy to check out the server status and who is on, without even loading up the game.

                      Enjoy!

                        Well, since these banners are not yet up... here are the links for those individuals who want to check the server status by web browser.

                        Just bookmark these two pages:
                        Server #1
                        http://www.gametracker.com/server_in....178.169:2302/

                        Server #2
                        http://www.gametracker.com/server_in....178.169:2312/

                          Yes they are. I've been using this script for about 8 months now.

                            About a year now, just make sure you have the grease monkey all hooked up right.
