Empire Earth 2: Status Center

Post by Leader » 20 Jul 2012, 01:52

Empire Earth 2: Status Center
-----------------------------------

After 3 days of hard work - I've finished "Empire Earth 2: Status Center" for ~eW`~>FORUM.

What is Status Center?
Status Center will allow you to see some features of the Empire Earth II Lobby via Internet Browser.
Status Center is still developed, and there will be added more functions in the future.

What actually "Status Center" can do?
Actually in status Center you can see:
- The list of currently online players in the Europe room on the EE2
- Minimum 20 last messages from the EE2 lobby.

What will be done in the future?
- Full EE2 Lobby chat log (every player will be able to check all messages which have been ever sent)
- "Who is? (every player will be able to check other nicknames of the selected player)

How to use "Empire Earth 2: Status Center"?
1. Via link: http://forum.ee2.eu/h17-ee2-status-center (available in the menu of ~eW`~>FORUM - watch screenshot)
2. Via ~eW`~>Toolbar (recommended)

How "EE2: Status Center" works?
EE2 Status Center is dependent on the EE2-Patch1.3 BOT. Status Center will be updated only when EE2-Patch1.3 BOT will be online.
EE2-Patch1.3 is sending a .htm and .html files on the FTP server, so we can see it in an "iframe" on the forum.
Statistics are automatic updated every 15 seconds. You don't have to refresh page to see latest possible status.

I hope everyone likes my work Image

Yeah, Timo is right. Nice job Mona.

It has helped us in a way. Because now I simply can see who's online without going there... It facilitates a lot now.

Thanks Image

It was really a lot of things to do.
Maybe it doesn't look that good, but I had a lot of work with scripting, FTP, then new site on the ~eW`~>FORUM Image

The best will be option which allow to check "Who is", and option which will allow you to check Full EE2 Chat History Image

I guess it's cool but Mona seriously. Why are you trying sooooo hard to improve on a game that's like 6 years old?? Plus you wanna do me a favor and spam Zapper everytime he get's on? I hear he is still posing as me and further more a fake eeg.. I find that pretty disrespectful so you could rid of that trash to the recycle bin please Image
P.S- I thuoght ee2 was dead except for the infestive amount of ew players that rape the servers everyday.

Well, I have to do such things, because our clan and forum has been selected as Presidency clan of the EE2 in 2011/2012.

Also I want to do everything, to make ~eW`~>FORUM the best EE2 site ever.
Plus you wanna do me a favor and spam Zapper everytime he get's on? I hear he is still posing as me and further more a fake eeg.. I find that pretty disrespectful so you could rid of that trash to the recycle bin please
I can block his EE2 account with *Eeg* tag. Unfortunately I cannot do it without decision of the Minister of Justice
If Zapper still plays on *Eeg* accounts - please open a new topic with this problem in this subforum: http://www.forum.ee2.eu/f34-empire-earth-ii-government
The case will be sent to Ministery of Justice which will decide if I can ban his account or not.
The case should be solved in ~2-3 days.
P.S- I thuoght ee2 was dead except for the infestive amount of ew players that rape the servers everyday.
We're not very active in last months (but still active, just not that much as we used to be).
I still hope that some of players will return.
I worry about ~eWA`, because I didn't see Academy member for weeks...

You calling me noob? xD
It's because of the time. Look, you're writing this post at 8:46am CET. Everyone's sleeping at this time until 10-11AM.
I agree, a year ago there was more players from USA.
I think the number of players is still same, and in this year even better.

At least noobs are players. Doesn't matter if they know how to play or not. They're still having fun with each others.
