[Fyrebug] Version 0.746 – chat, holidays, server text

flat file php conversions
conversion of flash-driven php run functions to flat text files. the text files are now located in /uploaded/text/foldername where folder name is the name of the action in the php run (ex. action=flashxgameinfo for each game info text file)

types of flat files so far:

  • creates (saved as text files by createtypeid):
    • createtypeinfo
    • enginechoices
  • engines (saved as text files by engineid)
    • engineinfo – returns engine swf url
  • games (saved as text files by gameid, in subfolders by 1000)
    • flashxgameinfo
    • also uses engineinfo
  • f425 (saved as text files by page name)
    • f400control
    • also uses flashxgameinfo

the shell, create and f425 are updated to support these text changes.

admin functions
there are new admin functions to generate new text files if anything changes.

these are on www.fyrebug.com/admin and can be done by:

  • creates – all one click
  • engines – all one click
  • games – done 1000 at a time by offset=
  • f425 – not live yet

client stats
new page for stats by client, so far hardcoded like other client pages for sikids userid=15100
