Iron Fist - 15G
Throw a Six and a Half - 15G

Now I need to finish all the missions I haven't done so far on veteran for all the singleplayer, and original, achievements, I think I'll give it a go when I'm less irritable and tired, because veteran always manages to piss me off beyond all recognition.

Also, sorry for the triple post but this place is dead like usual.

Cruising through the awesome Bulletstorm. The achievements are pretty fun in it also.

Also, just completed Relentless on Veteran which proved to be more than frustrating, but 30G came out of it so it wasn't too bad.

Fearless - 30G

I'm getting so close to finishing Turok which has been a bitch of a game achievement wise. I only need to finish 5 or 6 more co-op games (not as easy as it sounds) and do the other probably 2/3 of the campaign on the hardest difficulty to 1000 it. Hopefully I'll be done in the next few days.

I'm currently debating whether or not to pick up Dragon Age 2/Pokemon Black on Friday. Looking at going to Leeds Festival this year if MUSE and Red Hot Chili Peppers are playing so can't really afford to buy anything else with my preorder taking about £65 leaving me with about £200, but I am going to have to give one of my friends some money to come with. Oh well... I'll stick with Blue Dragon again and try and finish that off as much as possible. Proberbly not going to be able to get all my characters to level 99 but should be able to get all the items and monsters, with all warp devices and barriers. Should be fun.

Finished Bulletstorm on very hard and polished off the Echoes without any trouble, fun game. Little short. Gonna trade it in and get DJ Hero 2 and possibly something else.
Still no internet, sorry again about no update. This is now 2, and possibly 3 weeks in a row I haven't done it :x

Rejoice, people. I have a script that automatically reads the gamerscores off the official Xbox website. ShittyKitty took some time out of his busy schedule (and trust me he is one busy beaver, don't be afraid to shower him with love and suck his dick out of gratitude) to write us a script. This is the message he sent me along with it:
Okay, I've written up a quick-and-dirty little program that'll pull gamer info for you, and I've put on my server here. To use it, make a file with a list of gamertags that you want to pull, one tag per line. For example:

joshua70448
yourtaghere
foobar

You'll browse for that file for the Input File, and you'll browse to save an Output File. Click Start Processing to begin, and you'll get a comma-separated value (CSV) file containing each user's gamer tag, Live account type, reputation (number of stars), and gamerscore. You can open this CSV file in a spreadsheet for further use. Enjoy!

I've made a quick test run with it, and what it does is, it takes the .txt file you create with the Gamer Tags and it produces a spreadsheet off it with some info. The output looks like this:

When I put in:
joshua70448
KoentJ DDG
foobar

I will receive as output:
joshua70448,Silver,3,355
KoentJ DDG,Gold,4,28395
foobar,Gold,4,1930

As you can see, first off, the output comes out in the same order as the input: Joshua comes out first. This way, you just keep up the input file with the way the leaderboard was ranked the last time, you copy and paste into a word file (or whatever it is you want to use to copy and paste from onto the BBS) and start switching those that switched places from there.

Besides that, it gives more information: The first is the gamer tag, live account type, reputation and last but not least the gamerscore. Now, there are some things in here we don't need, but who cares, the delete key is right there.

So basically, with this output all we need is someone to keep up a template in a word file that has the rankings of the last Leaderboard (including which gamer tag is which NG nickname) and you can just copy and paste the new gamerscores, manually update how much gamerscore they went up and manually update how many places they went up. Basically, I think this will reduce the time of updating from 1.5 hours to about 15-30 minutes.

I don't think I have anything better to do today, so I think I'm going to run the first leaderboard with this script and create the word template. I'm not making any promises though, because I might have some overdue coursework laying around. If anybody else wants to pick it up, I linked the script up there, so enjoy.

Alright, so I made the text file with the Gamertags (order based on rankings on the last correct leaderboard). I didn't add anybody who was supposed to be added though, because I think we need to keep this first run with this script clean.

Now, I figured, I doubt the site we used in the past came out with a clean template of our Leaderboard (including who went up, including NG nicknames, including top whores, etc.). So is there a template already out there?

If so, please share it with me through e-mail with me: daredevilguy@gmail.com. If nobody sends me a template, I suppose I will make one from scratch at the end of the day.

Until then, I have uploaded the text file to rapidshare in case someone who already owns a proper template feels like updating the leaderboard: Gamer tags.txt.

I meant anybody new. I believe there were 1-3 people who needed to be added. I don't mind doing so, but I want to make a test run with a template first with gamer tags that have been on the leaderboard for awhile now, to test this new method out.

Never heard of it. Anyway, only the person who has to download the file is the person that is going to use it. So I don't see a problem here.

If you can do that, that would be amazing. Then I'm leaving my share at this, even though I only acted as a middle man (don't forget to thank ShittyKitty, yo).

I've uploaded a new version (2.0) of my little GamerScores program here. Now it's a lot more powerful, and can automatically generate your leaderboard posts for you (I based the post format off of the last three listings I found in this thread). To start using the program, click the Import Previous CSV button to load up your list of users. I've created a CSV file for the last listing you posted (with Matt's new Gamertag) and uploaded it here; I recommend using that file to start with.

Once you load a file, the results from the previous run are shown in the list. You can click on column headers to sort if you like. Notice that the Cur Rank, Cur Points, and Point Chg columns are initially empty; to get this information, click the Start Processing button. The status bar will show a progress meter as the Gamercards are downloaded. If all goes well, you'll get a box that says "Success"; otherwise, you'll get a box telling you which users had invalid Gamertags. Additionally, these users will appear in red on the list. I'll tell you how to fix those later in this post.

Now that you've gotten the new Gamerscore info, click the Copy NG Post button to create the listing post for use on NG. You'll get a dialog that lets you customize how the post will look; the default settings will generate your current posts, but you can change them in the future (these settings will be remembered on your computer, too!). Once you're happy with the settings, click OK and the NG post will be copied to your clipboard. Note that invalid users (the ones in red) will not appear in this copied post.

When you're all done, you'll need to click the Export CSV to save the new scores for next time you run the listing. I recommend saving on top of the CSV file you used before, so you don't get confused. This way, next time you start up the program and import your CSV file, it'll be ready to show the differences between the last run and the present run! Note that if you Export with invalid users in your list, their Gamerscores might be reset to 0, so make sure you fix those invalid entries before Exporting!

You can change the users in your list by using the Add New User, Edit User, and Delete User buttons. These buttons work in a pretty straightforward manner; you can also double-click on a user in the list to edit them.

If you have any other questions about this program, post them here and I'll try to help! Enjoy!

That is absolutely amazing, man. I'm baffled.

I've run it once to check it out. Didn't figure I'd post the Leaderboard though, since I have never been one to post it and we do need one dedicated poster who keeps the CSV file updated on their computer.

I wouldn't mind being the one that keeps track, but I figure Leo will take over again.

I'm going to say it again SK, thanks a whole lot. You've solved all of our problems with what seems like a finger snap. <3

very swish, cheers bro!

bugs:
the csv you gave us was wrong. Like, crazy wrong. Like, it listed at least twelve people as having negative gamerscore change... you just gave us buggy numbers in the csv :p

If you sort points changed a couple of times it goes into alphabetical sort rather than numerical, and also ignores minus signs (although this shouldn't be a prob with proper starting data) (

Like I can rank it

0
0
0
...
10
105
120
1313
-135
15
-170

etc

apart from that far better than the old script :) two and a half thumbs up bro

ShittyKitty thank you SO MUCH, I'm sure everyone here is really grateful!
