Major Update!

Custom backgrounds now available, but there's a few catches in this early stage.
  • Must be uploaded somewhere.
  • Must be .PNG file.
  • If it's smaller than the size of the userbar, the remaining space will be black.
  • It crops the top corner so for best result, you're going to have to get an image to the appropriate size (195x20px or 350x20px) beforehand.
  • Figured out how to add the lines on top of the image, but can't get a highlight working well. I'll keep trying.

The generator is already updated with the new features. Give 'em a try. =)

Mini-Userbar, Small Image


Normal Userbar, Big Image, No Lines

Yeah, that's what I was doing as well, I just googled "touhou" and grabbed random .PNGs to try out.

Also, just made the "Level:"s line up better and fixed where it displayed ">9000" if your level is 9000. (Now it properly has to be a number over 9000)

On that note, this is the power of dynamic userbars! I fixed everyone's userbars without them having to reupload or resubmit any information. =D

nice :)

Btw is that script cpu intensive server-side? I wonder if it can error when many people use it at once?

Good thought. It definitely takes a bigger toll on the server than normal userbar generators since it has to process the code for every image (and most likely for the duplicates when it comes to sigs too) but it's also not doing too much in total and I could probably optimize it more.

However, even with all that, it still could error with too many people... I'm just not sure how many is "too many".

Aaah ok. Well, I guess if you ever put it here directly, we'll just have to see if it works well, and if during high activity periods we get too many errors or site runs ridiculously slow, then we'll hve to keep it on your webspace x.x

The cool thing, tho, is that since we both use 1and1, the script will not need any modification to run on my space

So, you can modify the people's sigs yourself... :P I just hope that you won't involve any lobsters if you want to do some pranks! XD

Site up! http://userbars.removedfromgame.com/

Everything but the generator is under construction. I'll work on it more today.

Everyone, update the URLs for your userbars today. Tomorrow, I'm taking the files off of the old URL. (the change is just adding "userbars." in front of "removedfromgame.com")
The next change, if any, will be to http://userbars.omnimaga.org/ so it won't be a big issue to change either, but that won't happen for another couple of months if ever.

Anyway, tell me what you think. =)
