Default XLN Launches silverlight based Gamercards

All,


After some major programming hours I'm proud to announce that we now feature silverlight based Gamercards.

Silverlight is a flash-like technology from microsoft.

The xln cards are rendered using our own API webservices and the dynamic data is generated by a php engine.

The overall architecture is quite complex but it works.

The cards can be seen in our forums.

This is in beta so please report any errors.

UPDATE 1:


a sample Silverlight card can be seen on http://www.xboxlivenation.com/commun...hp?gt=stonyarc


due to conflicts on internet explorer while loading multiple instances this is temporary disabled


UPDATE 2:


a sample XLN Engine card can be seen on http://www.xboxlivenation.com/gamerc...hp?gt=stonyarc

As silverlight wasn't stable enough on IE7 (for example having the skype plugin active would crash IE) I decided to write my own engine with the same look.

This engine still uses our own API service to limit the access to the database.

The result can be seen in the forum.

Please report any issues. the card are no purely php driven and are not even graphically rendered as our custom cards are.


Cheers

Really like this new format. Looks great, will we be able to use this on other websites like Myspace or Spaces?
