Ladders Game Search

        Fort Wars and Castle Blood Ladders have been updated with an even better search feature.   Games can now be searched for winning and losing player (look up how many matches have occured between players etc).   Enjoy!

Easy Page Creator Updates

        While fixing it up for use by Paperfriend on his guides library, I added many new updates and features - and might as well update my main code as well.

        Updates include: Cookie-based log in (remembers info) and log out, smarter search engine (can also search all fields and highlights results), shows number of results, ability to hide/show certain details, full bbcode support, etc.

New Ladders

        The new ladders that counts FFA and has many more viewing options is now up and replaced the old ones. :)

        A few new features are filtering by game type, skipping to certain days to view games, etc.

        Also the ladders now use the XML feeds, which should be faster (although it seems to be somewhat more error prone).   Let me know if you find any problems.

        Here’s a quick Castle Blood Ladder for those interested. :)

Updating Fort Wars Power Rating

Updating the ladder (switching to xml links) and those provide information on who wins in FFAs and uneven teams.  Basically it’d be like the old ladder a bit. FFAs - everyone contributes a few points and the winner takes all.

Uneven teams is about the same only it’s shared among the team.

Example: 2v4

The four lose and give up 10 points each.
The two each get 20 points.

It seems to give alot of points however.

Tested this: all 1600, 4 players, FFA
Winner: ~79
Losers: ~26

Maybe if teams are uneven, points distributed are halfed or something.
To better give you guys an idea of what I’m talking about,

Here’s the new ladder running parallel with the current one.  

Good or bad? Vote here…
