great idea, i wanted to do this but didnt have the time. What are you ideas for the next version, and what are your plans for the final (1.0) version?

This is amazing, but even better, make a friends list widget that shows the halo 2 ranks of your friends with halo 2. Also, the status bar of your rank would be an awesome feature.

Very nice redesign. Has odd bug- currently shows me at 256% progress in team skirmish, with the progress bar extending far out past the widget bar. Still, once this is worked out and friends are added, this'll be a must-have.

This is a great idea, the only problem is that I didn't really like the UI aspect much.
I redesigned that part based upon the Halo 2 menu system. You can have a look at it here: http://img100.echo.cx/img100/457/preview9dw.png
Contact me via AIM if you would like to use this as the new skin.

IceSpectre, I really like that design try to contact Aoshi and see if he would make it. and I would like to see just a horizontal bar when theres no gamertag selected but when you search it falls down to show your stats. just like the yellow book widget.

Posted by: rblitz on May 15, 05 (4:42 PM) for version 0.5b (current version)  

Love the idea, and works flawlessly, but like other people have said, the UI isn't up to much.
IceSpectre, I like your design too, but I'd get rid of the Gametypes (or whatever it is) logo, it just takes up a lot of space.

I just directly edited Aoshi's widget, and there was a lot of space to fill, so I decided to add in the Objective icon in to add something else.
BTW, that is actually a complete widget in my screenshot, so if anyone wants it, just contact me to get a hold of it.

Thanks people for all your comments... I'm trying to satisfy everybody....
Has IceSpectre did, it is "easy" to design new skin... I will try to put more comments and a text file to help you to do more..... for the bug mention by VeritusD , it is linked with .net logging... it will be solve in future release...

Decent widget, but I think any logos should be added as a water mark inside the main window rather than being outside. Also, it would blend in with other widgets better if it had that rounded shiny plastic look that all of the Apple supplied ones have. Something along the lines of SysStat's appearance would make this a better widget.

I edited your widget so that it looked like the on-screen decals from the game; do with it what you will:
http://www.icack.com/HaloStats.wdgt.zip

I'm currious as to if you're are scraping this info from this page, can you get "the # of games played" and "games won" data?

Also, I have an XML feed of the data from the last 5 games I've played. Can that be parsed to give even more info in the widget?

I'd love to help more,
Chris

Great start, very original. The horizontal bar that drops down with information and the watermark ideas are very good and will save space. If you add friends or clan ranks, you should have a tab that switches between them. Right now I'm using captphatsidy's version since its smaller. Take the suggested pictures into consideration too.

ok i like the idea, and i would like to help you with it. the only thing i dont like is the graphics.
also, the percents are all wrong for mine, they all say 2% and team skirmish says 256%

if you need a referance for how to collect the data, here is a good stats veiwer: (this just happens to be my stats, you can put anyones name there)

http://www.haloimpulse.com/sig/stats.swf?playerName=k6ng6r00&i=140798&k=585225076

theres some graphics examples as well. notice the 3rd bar at the top left, when you click it, it shows recent games, from my rss feed, which is
feed://www.bungie.net/stats/halo2rss.ashx?i=140798&k=585225076

well theres some ideas and suggestions for you i hope you continue to update this widget and make it better and better
