I bet you didn't see that coming...
The statistics are back! Not only are they back, they're actually better than ever! And they're separated!
For our Battlefield Vietnam players, head over here: https://www.helloclan.eu/bfv/stats
For our Battlefield 1942 players, head over here: https://www.helloclan.eu/bf1942/stats
Both Vanilla and DC server stats are displayed - note the server names!
Both servers main pages and the "Our Games" tab have been updated with links to the respective stat pages!
How did this happen?For those that are perhaps interested in the story...it goes a little something like this...
Once upon a time, we were using selectBF as our source for stats on our players that played on the servers we had. Now, selectBF had initially been made ... a long time ago and on old php versions. Cut to last year, with our own php upgrades we broke the stats. We could not fix them and even hosting them on a subdomain using older php versions (which should have worked) simply did not. Hence me / SK / HelloClan calling it a day with the stats pages.
Cut to ... literally Sunday.
Our own @htn (officially now our Technician) got stuck into them - I even roped in the original creator of selectBF who was...quite surprised to hear it was till being used! Anyway, HTN toiled for quite some time, we threw around subdomains with various php version to test and see what was working and what wasn't.
HTN singlehandedly sorted out the old code used in selectBF and got it working bit by bit on the latest php versions. The amount of effort he put in...is tedious even for me to describe. As a result of his hard work, HelloClan has the first working version of selectBF running on the latest possible software! He even managed to make it a bit more secure too...which is a feat entirely on it's own.
We will be liaising with the creator (for those interested his name is Tim Adler https://toadle.me/en ) to re-upload the working version to GitHub and hopefully republish it entirely for all communities to use once again.
I'll say this bluntly though, full credit to HTN for getting it all sorted!
