Hey guys, im brand new to the site. Also new to the whole computer programming. I have a few question about flash I was hoping to get an answer on. I am currently making a website for a xbox live clan (chuckle if you must)... but I am trying to make two different pages, one that could poll information off of xhtml site that has the stats I want to pull/poll onto my site?(call of duty has stats I.E. : most used weapon, total kill count, current rank, etc.) any ideas, please help. The other being, I want to have a area on my site that would show my current members online on xbox live. I do believe that xbox's friend section (xbox.com) is flash as well. How can I pull/poll such information? any help would be amazing. Again very new, dont know much lingo... thanks

Welcome zulu, and my first question is why does this need to be in Flash?

Where does this data come from, are you polling your users or pulling it from some xbox data center?

alright, hopefully I dont sound to slow but, the data I want is on xbox.com. Not really sure how to grab the online status of a player. Id like to put a nice clean layout of all my members, to be able to see whos online. I know there a forum signatures that do basiclly the same thing...ill try to post a link of one here... (so it doesnt need to be flash on my site, but the information is provided via flash, and thats the only way to see the info.

Well its something like PHP that allows them to connect with XBOX and grab the data. Problem is they don't show how they do it.
