The following post was deleted because of the forum issues. I still had it open in a tab and thought it warranted re-posting.

Hi,
currently i am writing a map/game analyser tool. Are there some test data? Maybe one can send me the xml file which a member can obtain with http://wiki.warlight.net/index.php/Query_game_API of a quite popular map like middle earth or something, not too big! I would be very grateful :)

greetings

Oh good, someone finally takes on using API to cool things.

BTW. "This API can only be used for tournament games, ladder games, or games created via the CreateGame API call."

Few remarks:

Here's a link to the game on WL itself (might help to look at the game and see what was happening): http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer.aspx?GameID=2592070

Depending on what you try to do, keep in mind the API is only available for games which have already finished; making a "tactical assistant" which gives advice on how to play a game (or something like that) is therefore impossible.

Be very careful in your programming; when I was working on something similar a while ago I also got a gamefeed dump from a member and even though you quickly think you've got it figured out, there are a few unexpected entries which can crop up. (Of course, if you follow the standard "all input is designed to crash my program, until proven otherwise" you should be fine. :p )
