A first attempt...

Recommended Posts

I came across this API yesterday, and I thought hey, that's awesome!

 

So I spent a few hours on:

  • A CSS3 gamercard using data retrieved by the API
  • A scrolling collection of my 100%'d games (I already had the code for this elsewhere)

And the final result of both respectively:

Also, love the design and AJAX going on here.. please add "btn-primary" to your button classes on the front page to liven it up a bit though! (Bootstrap fan). And finally, "The Witcher 2" doesn't have a cover as you can see according to the gamercard above.

 

Oh I forgot, this is on the "Xbox Live" tab on my homepage if anyone wants to check out the client-side code.

Very nice! The boxart issue is a problem on Microsoft's side. Some of their images are corrupted in one way or another, I've yet to figure out what's going on. Until then, I may have to put a placeholder for those without images for the time being.

 

Also, as you can see, I've updated the front page :) I'm a Bootstrap lover myself.

Just a simple placeholder with the Xbox logo would be cool, and the new homepage looks great!

 

As for 'finding' which images are corrupt, I'm not sure how you would find that. You could possibly use PHP GD? Or alternatively I just looked at the blank image and it comes out at 1px x 1px, so could check for that server side before sending an alternate image?
