Hello everyone, i was just trying to get an idea of how to connect a Username on a website to a xbox box live username. I was wondering How you would go about accessing there servers to connect it like this. An example would be gamebattles.com.

 

 

Thanks for the help,

What do you mean "connect"? Having a user enter their enter their Xbox username and have your site automatically pull their data from the xbox live servers? Or just having a link from their username to their online profile (I don't use xbox live personally, but I'm assuming they have an online profile somewhere?)

 

You probably would need to use some sort of XBox Live API if you need to get data. You'd need to research this -- I'm not sure if Microsoft provides an API, but I imagine they do...?

If you just want to link to their profile, it looks like that can be accessed like this: http://live.xbox.com/member/[username]. You'd just need to use PHP to echo out the correct link, with their username at the end.

Yes, im trying to get all the details before i start creating this site, I want their xbox live username and data on xbox live to connect with the website and export the xbox live data to my website and display that data on the website.

 

 

 

Thanks for the help.

Hey Cody Perry,

 

I have done a couple of sites based on the xbox theme though I've never actually used an API. The only thing I have needed the player card details. So, If you would like the the old fashioned playercard format (which took me ages to find by the way), you can get the source code from my site atxclan.info/the_team.php

 

Oh, and there's an API too, I found and saved some PDF files on the web some time ago but I can't remember where I saved them. I'll have a look for them when I get home from work.
