I've been working on some new features for TheDevGame.com, here's a brief overview of what I'm working on.

If you've seen me around the MinecraftForums then you might have noticed my signiture banner.

 

My banner is a dynamic image drawn programatically by TheDevGame.com which is updated automatically once an hour.

 

I use my banner to display the all time download history of my mods as well as what I'm currently working on and the current version of WizardCraft.

 

Dynamic Banner

 

Since I started using my banner I've had loads of private messages on the Forum asking me where I got it, and well all I can say is that I made it myself which doesn't really help the person asking.

 

So, I decided to extend the functionality of my website to allow anyone to sign up to TheDevGame and create a banner of there own.

 

For the first version of my Dynamic Banners you will be able to upload whatever image you want and display the following content:

 

  • Twitter updates
  • Facebook updates
  • Personalised messages
  • RSS feeds
  • YouTube updates

For the moment you wont be able to display a count of downloads like I do. Mainly because TheDevGame hosts my downloads so it's easy to count.

 

If the feedback is good and the dynamic banners prove popular then I may extend it further to allow people to host their Mod/Skins on TheDevGame and display their download count on their banner.

 

This update will be coming in the next few weeks along with a few imporvements to other areas of the site.

 

Thanks for reading.
