Like i already said in the XBUC History Topic, i'm the lost founder of the XBUC and i would like to further develop it. This topic is about showing the progress made so far in developing the new XBUC. Currently i'm waiting for a reaction from lefos about this. It may be a bit tricky to get in touch with him since, if i remember correctly, he lives in the USA and i'm from germany. In the hope that we will not mind about me being back after 3(!) years i already began coding some basic functionality and doing some basic work for the new look. [sharedmedia=core:attachments:2035] This is the current progress made so far after some hours. I already got some basic things implemented like game and title update list and detail pages (this is what you see in the screenshot above), signing in and creating new accounts and filtering title updates by their region. Currently i'm working on the new uploader which will retrieve more information from each title update and will reject tempered updates (no "pen*s tu 1" anymore ). The new XBUC will also be more secure. Yesterday i found some serious flaws that would allow injecting sql. Back in 2009 i didn't care about this that much. I just wanted to get it up and running back then and thought that i could fix these issues later. Looking at this now and seeing that XBUC is still alive makes me wonder if either no one has even tried to really hack it or was just way to dumb to do it. When i get in touch with lefos we'll try to fix the biggest flaws now, so the old XBUC will be safe until the new one will be deployed. This topic is ment to be a showcase of the current progress and also a place for making suggestions and giving some feedback. I would like to know what features you are missing or where we could make it easier to find the right update for your game. This is what i got so far: Completly rewritten in Python using the Django framework New, responsive and modern design using Bootstrap New file uploader using HTML5 Check uploaded TUs if they were altered somehow Better searching (live search, autocomplete, etc.) and browsing Better game specific data (from thegamesdb.net or something else instead of amazon) Community features like comments and user contributed changelogs Say "thank you" and Flattr the uploader of the TU Top contributers list, charts and statistics Subscribe to games and get an email when a new update is released Backward compatible API Open REST-JSON API for the XBUC Utillity (see below) and other tools XBUC Utillity (name may change): Written in C# .NET / Mono Connects with your XBUC account Synchronizes all updates from games you subscribed to and saves them to your XBOX 360 USB Stick Retrieves new updates from the usb stick and uploads them to XBUC automatically If you have savegames on the stick, the utility will auto-subscribe the corresponding game and will auto-download new updates No other tools needed anymore, yeah As you see, the XBUC Utillity will be the greatest addition to the current XBUC and will make it much easier to get the right update for your game. The XBUC Utillity (please suggest a better name) will do all the stuff for you automatically, like searching for new updates and uploading yet unknown updates to the XBUC. If you got any other suggestions please let me know also your feeback is very appreciated. There isn't any release date yet, but i think that we can get the new site up and running with basic functionality in a week. I'll then begin adding all the more complex features and the utillity.
