    #135490 How this site helped my life

    Posted by iBotPeaches on 17 February 2015 - 06:45 AM

    Thanks for the kind words. It is amazing when you look back on it how the H2 community in general spearheaded life choices for so many of us. For myself, it helped me pick my path of Computer Science and job.

     

    Good luck out there in life, glad iBotModz played a part in helping you get involved in computer related fields.

    #134953 [Help] PHP/MySQL API [Help]

    Posted by iBotPeaches on 05 May 2013 - 05:57 PM

    You make an API like you make anything else.

     

    It interprets responses it gets and outputs data. The slight difference is there is no interface and the returned data is usually JSON/XML.

     

    EX:

     

    Hitting

    stats/members

     

    Would hit the database, then return the json file containing Members, xx etc.

     

    As you get more powerful, you begin to add basic things to output on each API request. EX, time of request, status of request, incoming API version, etc.

     

    Look at this API:

     

    https://stats.svc.ha...4/servicerecord

     

    You hit that, and get data. Raw data. You then interpret on your application (ex http://leafapp.co) and make something beautiful.

    Or we can accept that we are a dead community and are fine with it :p




    #134704 What would you add to this? ::ScottssDashV1::

    Posted by iBotPeaches on 20 January 2013 - 06:03 PM

    Its just making a PHP based api on your server, that outputs (json / xml) for your app to read and understand, so all the security stuff is held server side (php) and not easily decompilable in your app.




    #134702 What would you add to this? ::ScottssDashV1::

    Posted by iBotPeaches on 20 January 2013 - 03:32 PM

    You never want to have a program like this that communicates to a server to modify a database, unless you use a middle man (server php script).

     

    Its just calling "hack me and steal my username and password authentication"

    If I know my systems well enough, there is no software patch that can fix this. This is too low level in the boot.


    #133974 Recap of my MS experience.

    Posted by iBotPeaches on 17 October 2012 - 02:47 PM

    I asked an owner of a pre-released game via Xbox Live to leak it to the world. In all honesty, I knew he wouldn't and I was just messing around.

    The next 2 days that occurred though is unbelievable and just worth telling. For those unaware your Xbox Live account is actually a Windows Live account which also has the ability to be part of

    -MSDN
    -Dreamspark
    -Windows Messenger
    -SkyDrive
    -Outlook Mail
    -MicrosoftStore
    -Bungie.com Forums

    and a lot more.

    Lets follow the steps of my account.

    1) Microsoft first banned me till year 9999 per...

    "This email is to notify you that your Xbox LIVE account privileges have been permanently suspended due to attempts to extract account information from other playersand/or attempts to use the Xbox LIVE service for commercial purposes. This conduct was discovered in your profile, your activities, and/or your communications."

    In my defense, no where in that statement does it say. "Asking another member to commit a crime can result in a complete Microsoft account deletion"

    2) Their ToS change. The next day I sign into Xbox Live on my brothers account to check if I got him banned. O wait. I have to approve a new ToS. So Microsoft updated their ToS sometime after suspending me (probably adding in something which gives them the ability to ban me).

    3) I wake up and my Windows 8 Release Preview computer says, "You are signing in locally because the remote Windows Live account couldn't be found". Tried to sign into passport.net and got

    "That Microsoft account doesn't exist. Enter a different email address or get a new account."

    So thats great. My entire Windows 8 computer with synced settings is just gone. Since Windows 8 syncs settings back to the Cloud, I lost my entire personalized computer. Seems like an evasion of privacy.

    4) I wonder how my Halo 4 preorder is doing. O wait. My account doesn't exist. Can't even check on my order.

    5) My SkyDrive account (which hosts a ton of my school files) just gone. Couldn't even find a local storage of the files on my computer. Could be my fault, but either way. Just lost a ton of school related files.

    6) My MSN Messenger. Over 500 friends that I've met over 7 years just gone. No way to redirect them, account just missing.

    7) I try a password reset. Account doesn't exist. I try a recovery your account by passing information to Microsoft. The response 20 hours later.

    "We have determined the Microsoft account ibotpeaches@******* does not exist. This is normally caused by an account being set to inactive, the account was deleted, or the account has expired. The account recovery request with issue number 59675096 has been closed."

    Yeah right. I signed in literally everyday. There was no inactivity here.

    8 ) I get a phone call.

    "Hello, this is Matthew from Microsoft Store. I'm calling to tell you that your order was cancelled due to credit card problem. Would you like to fix this to keep the order of Halo 4 LE Console Pre-order?"
    Me: "Mathew, there is nothing wrong with my credit card, but I can't sign into my account to check."
    "Sorry, I tried to re-issue the order but that email did not work. Do you have another Windows account?"

    just my luck. Everything is being taken from me.

    9) Well my edu verified Dreamspark account is gone, can't even download the new VS 2012 when it comes out. Just great.

    10) Asked on the Xbox.com forums (on new account). Why my entire MS account was deleted. Once again, the question was avoided.


    "Reason: Apologies, but this forum is solely for the purpose of learning the reasoning behind individual Xbox LIVE account suspensions, not to debate their duration or validity. The suspension will stand as issued. This forum is reserved for inquiries regarding Xbox LIVE account suspensions due to Code of Conduct violations. If your account has encountered a billing or payment issue, please contact Xbox Support. Thanks! "

    11) I was a part of the Beta Dashboard (Fall 2012). I've been part of lots of Xbox Beta dashboards. Probably about 4. Can't even sign into the MSDN private section to report feedback/bugs. That account is completely gone as well.


    Lesson learned. There are no rules at Microsoft. They respond to problems however they want deleting everything inside their Microsoft Ecosystem over a silly Xbox Live problem that if anything should of been a 2 week suspension. I urge everyone to get everything off their system into other systems if you care about your data at all. It seems they can completely wipe your account from existence. Even a 7yr old account without as much as a warning.

    I have brought our old 2007 Cbox back. There was nothing wrong with our current Shoutbox and it had amazing integration use w/ topics and what not but this is old school.

    I fixed the design to match our look and put little icons next to our usernames. Every usergroup has a different icon/color. Enjoy it.

    #133677 Halo 2 AIO (112 Unique Programs)

    Posted by iBotPeaches on 10 September 2012 - 01:13 PM

    HELP! Whenever I try click on "file" in h2 Guerrilla or h2 Core or insolence those programs crash! darkmatter appears to work, and those are the only programs I have tried so far, but also whenever i download the update with "file>check for updates" it downloads the update onto the desktop then it immediately gets deleted or moved somewhere and I dont know where, why is this happening? can anyone help?


    There hasn't been a program update in 2 years. So if you downloaded the newest version, thats the most up to date.

    As for the programs. Most of these were designed on Windows XP for specific dotnet versions and various other Direct X versions. As time goes on most of these programs will cease to work.
