All this mod does is it does in a way link to Xbox.  It just pulls the users gamertag, score, recent games, etc from the database.  I had this mod on my site when I was running VB.  It really does work perfectly.  I'll get a test site set up and everything and put a link to it on here so you will be able to see the examples and what not.  I'll also set it up to have 3 different Xbox profiles that I have but no longer use so you can see the data from what it pulls and shows.  I'll try to contact the developer of this mod on the VB team, and see what all I can get to work for us.

Here is a website that I found that has the Xboxliveleaderboard mod on it just so we can actually see an example of it in a real time forum.

I'm hoping you still have the source code? If you do, send it to me and I will try my best to port it for SMF :P

I will be porting it for 2.0 RC1 as well as 1.1.8, so long as I get permission from the original creator to port it :P

No. I can modify it for my own use, but cannot distribute it without permission even with copyright intact. Submitting it as a mod is considered distribution :P

ive messaged him on two seperate things, and hes updated his blog and was on xbox so im pretty sure he read them, i dont think he has any desire to reply.  :( so all in vain for me.

JBlaze

OK, well if anything, I'll just rediesign it so it's not a copy of his work.

This will take some time as I have to restructure it. So expect it not to be done for at least 1-2 months.

Sorry about this all, but it's much better to have quality work.

Okay so I can become excited now?  I like being excited.  JBlaze I will try to figure out a way to get some money to pay you for this, and maybe the other users that want this mod could help pay you for the work you will have to do.
