http://www.timwalling.com/halo2/I have held a bunch of these types of contests in the past, and this was was the toughest of all of them to judge. We were really impressed with the creativity of the applications, and especially blown away by how useful they actually are.Thanks all of the developers / designers. If you submitted an entry, please send me an email with you contact info (mesh@macromedia.com).

    Maybe it would be a good idea to mirror those entries?

  3. Yeah my site is having bandwidth issues. I have a mirrored version here (backgrounds won’t work while my other site is down):http://flash.isnan.net/halo2stats.htmlHowever, please don’t link to the SWF on this site for a signature, it’s already nearing the bandwidth for the month.

    If you need bandwidth, I’m sure many people, ,including me, could help while it’s downloaded a lot.

  5. Tim says:

    I should probably work on adding some instructions or background info. I was a little lazy in that department because I only thought a few people would be looking at it.

  6. Ok, I’ve got a (hopefully) permanent home now, feel free to link this file:http://flash.theevilness.com/stats.swf100 GB of transfer, hopefully there aren’t any more bandwidth issues. 🙂

    I’ve posted an updated version of the app on my site. Two big changes.http://www.timwalling.com/halo2/Some error checking and messaging has been added.Filtering for Game Type and Map (only those you share in common) has been added. This I think will make the app a little more interesting.Feel free to test it out. I didn’t feel like verifying the actual calculations.

    This is way late, and technically it may not have counted in the contest anyway since it’s not based on the RSS feed…but here is my contribution to the Halo 2 (and Macromedia) community:http://www.ironhive.com/halo2pod.cfmYou’ll see it running on the right-hand column of my website. Feel free to use it!Congratulations to the winners! Great stuff!
