Ok, I made a PHP Script, SX4. The objetive is the same as U13sss, but Text-Based, no MySQL Database needed. But as my programming skills are very basic, the features include are few:

* Webserver with PHP
* Soldat Server with Kill-Logs

* Get a webserver with PHP or run yours. I recommend the first one, cause it's easier: try at http://www.freepgs.com or try googling.
* Unzip all the files in the desired directory.
* Configure config.php
* If you are running on a linux server, you have to chmod to 0777 the hole directory.
* Run install.php

To update the stats run statsupdate.php . To display the stats, you will have to use include(). Eg. To show player stats write:

<? include('playerstats.php'); ?>


* Generated image.


* Top 10's -> http://mar77a.llsc.us/sx4/top10.php

Updates to version

* Joined some files together.
* New encoding system and storing for players.
* Script is 100% faster.
* Database is now smaller in files and more organized.
* Fixed all ranking issues.
* Fixed image activating issues.
* Fixed search engine.
* Fixed all the html encoding on players missing in some parts.
* Improved compatibility with CTF, HTF and INF.

Updates to version

* Added completedb.php
* New DB handling with all players stored and noone ignored.
* Improved speed a bit.
* Improved stats updating engine.
* Fixed weaponstats.php ranking bugs.
* Fixed general ranking issues.

Updates to version

* Fixed searching bugs.
* Added INF, CTF & HTF support.
* Added statsupdate.php
* Added some more options.
* Fixed playerstats.php bug
* Added rankpoints.php, rankgrabs.php, rankreturns.php, etc.
* Wow.

Updates to version

* Added case sensitive search option.
* Fixed some search problems.

Updates to version

* All nicknames are stored now. :)
* Fixed: muted some ranking "Warning" errors (Division by zero).

Updates to version

* Fixed Ranking by KD bugs again.
* Added rankkills.php & rankdeaths.php
* Fixed minor bugs.

Updates to version

* Faster engine.
* Better nickname control.
* Improved storing system.
* More flexible HTML for customization.
* Fixed Rankaing by KD bugs.
* Added search engine actually working.
* Improved engine on soldat.ini.
* Fixed form "action" bugs.
* Fixed hole install thingo.
* Improved admin interface.

First public beta
* Supports Gamemodes: Deathmatch, Pointmatch, Teammatch & Rambomatch.
* Playerstats: Kills, Deaths, K:D.
* Weaponstats: Kills, Most used Weapons.
* Serverstats: Lastupdated, Total Kills, Stats Since, Total Players.
* Generated stats IMG
* Player ranking based on K:D

Still to do

* Nothing.

I think a project like this would be better suited as a stand-alone application. It could be scheduled to run automatically every day or so to parse log files, outputting static HTML.

There is a free VB.NET/C# IDE called SharpDevelop available here: http://www.icsharpcode.net/opensource/sd/ . It is very easy for beginners to learn (drag and drop GUI, code completion) and there are lots of VB.NET source code samples floating around the internet.

Maybe you can make a detalied tutorial how to use the script.

March 5, 2005, 2:15 am
I will.

March 14, 2005, 1:45 am
I'd love to use this, but can't figure out how to make it work. =S

I ran install.php and got a blank page. So I checked the directory and there were a few new things:

-images (empty)
--logs (empty)
--players (empty)
--weapons (empty)

Did I do something wrong?

March 14, 2005, 2:50 am
install.php might take a bit to run. are you sure you let it finish loading?

March 14, 2005, 7:56 am
Yep, it finished loading...3 times. =S

March 14, 2005, 4:57 pm
Lemme try dis one..

March 14, 2005, 9:03 pm
Reaper, add me to MSN please @ jmartty@hotmail.com

March 15, 2005, 7:23 am
I did, but have yet to see you on it. =D

Your stats in collaboration with the new SARJ could be quite... harmonious. ;)

March 15, 2005, 8:56 pm
Ok, just try chmoding the DIR/FILES (where the install.php is) to 777.

March 15, 2005, 11:56 pm
Will do. I'll let you know whether or not it works out fine.

Now I get an Internal Server Error. >.<

March 16, 2005, 2:35 am
Weird, well, i'll post the files here for you instead of the install.php.

Edit: Here

March 16, 2005, 4:34 am
Mkay, now I have everything, but no clue what I'm doing with it all. -_-"

March 16, 2005, 8:28 pm
Do you know/have PHP in your webserver?

March 16, 2005, 9:19 pm
yes he does, i believe he was using my scripts for a while

March 16, 2005, 11:24 pm
Yes, I have PHP. I was going to use yours, FliesLikeABrick, but I changed the server to TDM.

While it is installed on my webserver, I know little to nothing about it. >.<

I wouldn't worry too much about it. I may be changing the server to CTF again for SCTFL.

i like it a lot, but it would be better as a stand-alone app.

link fixed here, the file has moved

Is this project completely dead? If not, I'm looking forward to the next release and the GUIDE because I'm having difficulties getting this to work...

September 6, 2005, 9:35 pm
Well, it is a bit dead, im sorry. If you need help, contact me on MSN.

EDIT: Im planning to get back to work on this again. Just for the moment, I fixed the download link and added a demo version.

October 12, 2005, 1:18 am
I like this script. Very easy to use.

November 22, 2005, 6:46 pm
will this working on with webhotel? or must it be on own computer with apache or something?

December 16, 2005, 3:17 am
I'm having some problems... it keeps looking for lognum.txt when installing, and a bunch of other .txt files, but it doesn't create them/ tell me to put them where they are uspposed to go... what should i do about this?

Mar77a has used antoher host for this *yay* because mine sucked. hard. But i really do like the way he is going with the Population Control Clan Stats site.

December 16, 2005, 2:55 pm
heh, like here yo have a cool demo i've setup for PC's server.

Just registered to this forum.

Im getting this error on stats page

Warning: Error parsing C:\Soldat\soldat.ini on line 165 in C:\xitami\xitami-25\app\webpages\soldat stats\engine.php on line 48

what seems to be the problem? does it effect into anything? I don't know much from php so im kinda stuck, it was an miracle that i got this far.

December 19, 2005, 3:14 pm
Hmn, it has to do with the parse_ini_file() function:
quote:Note: There are reserved words which must not be used as keys for ini files. These include: null, yes, no, true, and false. Values null, no and false results in "", yes and true results in "1". Characters |&~![()" must not be used anywhere in the key and have a special meaning in the value.

Remove any of those characters from the line 165, in:

It's me again, I'm just wondering how often Top10.php is being updated? and total kills? and other stats.
After server is restarted and new kill log created? is there a way to auto-update itself, like every 30min?

December 19, 2005, 5:32 pm
You have to update the stats by running statsupdate.php manually. Stats will be updated when a new kill log or console log is created.

December 24, 2005, 4:37 am
Very nice script, e-z to set-up, update, run, config...
There are however a few little typos in the script, in weaponstats.php for getting num of kills for each wep when parsing cluster files it checks for wrong filename:

$clukills = @file("stats/weapons/Clusters-K.txt");
$clukills = count($clukills);
$clukills = 0;
(should be :

similar problem with AK-74...
$akkills = @file("stats/weapons/AK_74-K.txt");
$akkills = count($akkills);
$akkills = 0;
(should be...
lowercase k in Ak-74 not uppercase)

And is there any ext for php i need for creating the forum-safe images (i'm running php4).

Ty and good job!

December 31, 2005, 7:38 am
Hmm. Having trouble in a Linux install. It reads the log files, but shows everything as 0 and not showing any stats. My server is located in /root/. Would this have anything to do with it? U13 stats don't work either. -Eric

Let's seeee...

Thanks Glucose, i'll fix that small bugs and other i have to in the next release.
Ken, you need to chmod to 0777 the main script directory,

January 23, 2006, 3:26 am
mar77a's back! huzzah! I'm wondering if it is possible to rename the server for the stats you setup for me.

Ken the Great
February 25, 2006, 7:00 pm
..And how exactly do I "chmod to 0777 the main script directory"? :D

Me=nub with this stuff..

February 25, 2006, 8:12 pm
Using any ftp client, for example www.web2ftp.com

March 1, 2006, 6:00 pm
mar77a can u help me out? i never see u on MSN :S
anyway when i run serverinfo.php it says server is offline even if its online, and i get lot of internal server errors (error 500) :S

Ken the Great
May 1, 2006, 2:30 pm
umm I give it a new try (didn't even remember I tried to use it :D) and got this error/warning when I wanted it to show the serverinfo:

Warning: parse_ini_file(): Cannot open '' for reading in /home/ethal/public_html/test/resources/sx4/engine.php on line 48

it shouldn't be anything with the directory since the the file who shows it is in /resources..

May 1, 2006, 4:04 pm
Mmm, if your filesystem is EXT2 or similar (Linux), you'll have to chmod the file so that the script can read it. Also, make sure you dont have special characters (listed in http://php.net/parse_ini_file ) in your soldat.ini.

May 20, 2006, 5:17 pm
This script confused me...

I got it to work properly. I just can't get it to work on my site. But that is fine, because I can still access it through IRC to view ranks from there.

Also, is there a way to count suicides as suicides?

May 20, 2006, 5:55 pm
Mmm, no, because of the kill-log parsing system. It does kills in one loop, and deths in another one, so there's no way of merging them.
