Me and a friend are developing a new stats tracking software that we think will become very popular. What is it? Its called Velocity Stats.

Currently in development, Velocity Stats will provide fully featured world-wide player, clan, and map ranking completely free. At first, we will only support Team Fortress 2. However, we soon plan to expand our game support to such titles as Counter-Strike: Source, and even Call of Duty 4 down the road.

We also support automatic clan tag detection, daily heatmaps, awards, weapon stats, and more. Currently we're working on the front-end (the part of the site the user can see) and we need some sample content to built the site around. We will start a private beta with major clans soon after the front-end is complete, but for now we need your help.

We ask you to supply us with some of your server log files, so we can use that data to build the site. Your logs should will be found in ../orangebox/tf/logs but only after you have added the 'log on' cvar to your server.cfg. The more popular your server is, the better.

Either reply to this topic with a link to an archive with the files in it, or email me a link by clicking here. Be sure to include a file (contact.txt) in the archive with your email and server IP so we can contact you about the beta when it starts.

All people that supply us with some log files in order to develop Velocity Stats will get an invitation into the private beta when it starts down the road. Don't forget to include the contact.txt file.

This looks really interesting - I wish I had a TF2 server. I can, however, feed you some CS:Source logs, neatly bundled into monthly .txt-files... does that sound interesting?

Thanks for the interest, but at the moment I don't really have much use for CS:S log files. Thanks anyways, though.

Can I pitch you a couple of random technical questions about your system or is that kind of information... secret?

Oh no, go ahead. This is an open source community, what do you want to know?

Nothing special, was just curious as to what language you code the backend in, and what language you're going to use for the frontend.

I'm assuming PHP is the answer to my last question - if it is, does this mean you're storing the scores in some form of an SQL database?

We're going to use Perl running on a linux box to grab logs from a stream, cache them, and store them in a MySQL Database. The frontend is just PHP, nothing special. We might do some Ajax ticker or something but for now its all just PHP. We're using a modified copy of Psychostats to power the backend, since they've built such a great open-source program. We'll then run some other update scripts that count up awards and make Heatmaps using Cron. Simple enough.

For anybody else reading this thread, I really could use those log files! xD
