View Full Version : adding a leaderboard?

08-02-2010, 07:50 AM
hey guys what's up?

I am brand new to this site and pretty much brand new to designing website outside of highschool classes and just messing around on my own. I have an idea for a website. But one key component would be having leaderboards on it. Can anyone shed some light? Any help is much obliged! Thanks in advance!


Just thought that I should mention that I'm talking about a game leaderboard, not the ad :) thanks again

If you want an automatically updated dynamic leaderboard you'll need a database driven backend.

If you want to pull actual game data you'll need to integrate that backend with data from the game.

I actually built such a thing for a battlefield variant. Flexible leaderboard with a backend of log files totally a couple hundred thousand player rounds. It was nice. Took me a few days of work.
