Fully working external achievements!

Ok dunno if i'm a bit late but a bit of a personal project to see if I could do it; However I have successfully got the xml parsing for all sigs fully working. I don't know how many people have managed this already so if it's already been done whoops!
However I will be releasing the source shortly and from there hopefully we can get some rather interesting third party websites coming out of it (if as I already said; it's not been done already).

Either way I can display if a user is online or offline; the stats in all source games such as, portal; L4D2; TF2 and pretty much any other game that supports stats.

If anyone is also interested in partaking in the project let me know.

So you're just parsing the stats and turning this into an image? Dude, that's not only quite an old pair of shoes, it's also not really well described with "external achievements"

well the main idea was to turn it into support for phpBB eventually, I've also written a class which works pretty well for that now. Yes I know it's probably been addressed but I haven't seen a lot of sites utilizing it yet have seen a few people asking about for it around. It was more for experimental uses, so soz if it's too old to bother just couldn't really find any "currently active" one that anyone has used or could use.

Sorry for rudeness, but you really awakened some expectations about something new and it turned out to be something that had been there before.

The very first part I did state I'm not sure if I was late implying that, I have looked around I only see it being done for tf2.
I still do feel that my class i've written does indeed help a lot of coders out there what with the pre-defined structures all added in. It perfectly passes the xml values from all the source games anyway.

Like I said sorry if it was done before and no worries; I didn't take it to heart anyway.

I did something similar back before the XML feeds were made available.
You might consider a more compact format.

Well so far it scans through and saves the selected entries (which the user can change in the main files) to either a database or a textpad (again user selectable)
like so:

$stats->statin('tf2','db');

takes about 6 seconds load time so far with everything in.
But the real objective was to be able to support all games which had stats. I know it's kinda reinventing the wheel, but it was worth a shot to see if anyone would find ease with their community website.
