I apologize with the spam but I dug up some old work I was doing with
the BF42 stats for BFRadio..

Just a comparison of what info you can get (there is much more than I am
showing here) from the XML


vs what you get from the Gamespy Query

This is something I've always wanted to talk to the maker of BBO about..

What BF2 needs something like netstats for the UT series.. they have the
XML stat logs, they just need to have a central place that everything is
uploaded and processed, this was one of my disappointments when i came
to learn that only "official" servers will have something like this..

I was going to ask the BBO maker to see if he would consider building
into BBO an auto XML transfer utility, (via ftp or what ever would be

There is so much more info in the XML logs but I've found it very
difficult in getting server admins to do anything with them, if BBO had
a built in utility for doing this it might be a little easier to get a
community wide stat effort going. Especially considering the number of
people who use BBO for BF42/V, having it built into BBO would make the
most sense.

But I guess just wait and see what actually comes with BF2 (maybe they
have this built in already)..

I've been experimenting with the game status protocol, against some of
EA's test servers, and have been writing a Perl module to make it easy
to query.
