RSS feed to the news

Post by Ddorda » Fri May 29, 2009 1:47 am

Hello,
I would really like to see the news of the game on a RSS feed, so i can read it not only when playing.
I think it's important to make it, because that's way people can notice there's news even if they don't play frequently (I do play a lot, but i think many people will be glad to see the news even if they didn't play for a while).

thanks,
Ddorda

Yes, RSS of game and site news would be good. Maybe merge them into one stream with three different outputs (news page, rss, game news).

Does news ever update? Aside from "version 0.0.x is out!" I have never seen a bit of news. When I load the game, the news screen pops up and says 'whatever part of tulimshar is now open!' from forever ago. I hope that isn't just some glitch with my game...

That news page, and the RSS if it gets created, should be updated more, maybe with 'new version features', upcoming/past events (even non-dev created), or even 'new in the git!' Hell, it could be daily with real news info at the top, and a cycling 'game tips' or 'backstory elements' at the bottom (where it gives little bits of info on parts of TMW's story).

We're bad with updating the client news about new content. We also haven't had a lot of new content recently.

The news on themanaworld.org are actually... created FROM a rss feed! If you take a look on the source code of the site: includes/news.php Its just parsing the rss feed from sourceforge ( via this url: http://sourceforge.net/export/rss2_proj ... fulltext=1 ) So adding a feed to the site is as simple as adding:

Code: Select all

  <link href="http://sourceforge.net/export/rss2_projnews.php?group_id=106790&rss_fulltext=1" rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS">
into the layouts HEAD section. Posted the same info o mantis :-)

Except that doesn't have info on new client content, which is what Ddorda was talking about.
