Dynamic images are basically images that change with circumstances. With the CTRA bars, as you graduate to a new licence it dynamically affects the userbar displayed on the forum.
Becky and I designed userbars that would do that, and also add a rendered image to the userbar, of the last car you raced with, even wearing the skin you used on it.. but sadly our server's graphics card isn't capable of instantiating the 3D rendering environment required to run that program. We'll have to wait for a hardware upgrade
And with the two rssc userbars, there would have to be 2 bbcode tags to support them both. More ideal would be that in the bbcode you can indicate your username and the dynamic image loader hosted by the league will automatically select which car that racer in question is driving.
For example if danowat drives the rac in the league,
[rssc]danowat[/rssc] would show the image of the rssc userbar with the rac.
And similarly, if GFresh would drive the fz5,
[rssc]GFresh[/rssc] would show the fz5 userbar.
Without this dynamic generation, there would have to be 2 separate bbcodes, as said above :
This is less nice to have. Certainly if a league would have even more cars.
EDIT : ok, this can also be done like : [rssc]fz5[/rssc], but again, it's less nice than user-personal ones. But if that's not possible, i can add the userbar using this method.
Dan, if you want to make your images dynamic, I'll host and write the supporting database and code so that you've got something extensible to work with. I've just done a week of CTRA coding.. I could do with a change of scenery Lemme know
Just thinking ahead here, but as there is an upcoming Winter cup (RSWC), would there be an easy way to make it load a different image for that, without having to change the userbar code. The way i'm thinking is that the code containing your name would automatically look up to see if you were racing in the summer or winter cup, then load the appropriate image. So [RSSC]GFresh[/RSSC] would even show the bar for the RSWC when it's active.
Just thinking it would save us having to bother Victor again in a few months when the Winter cup starts.
I went and landed myself another big chunk of "pressing" code, which being the OCD kinda person I am has consumed most of today. I'll get a rudimentary but very usable interface going tomorrow for you to feed with information.
