Putting those Halo 2 RSS Feeds to Use


I've been subscribed to my own Halo 2 RSS feed for a while now. At first I thought it was super cool, but recently I've struggled to find a good use for it other than noting "Wow, I played over 100 games of halo this weekend" by the new post count.  Well, today, Scott Reynolds forwarded me this...

Halo 2 RSS Excel Workbook (http://www.isamrad.com/Halo2RSS/)

Now you can pivot, sort, and graph your own Halo 2 stats to make some more use out of them!  I'll bet there will soon be other web sites and programs written that take advantage of this.  Too bad they don't include more info in the feeds from the game like medals won or other stuff you could only scrape from the web pages they have.

  1. have you noticed the new lag on the RSS feed? Sometimes it’s hours before the feed (or the site) is updated with recent games. Traffic issue you think?

    I guess not. I generally don’t check the feed for at least 24 hours after I play.

    during ur step 3 i went to right click the data but xml didnt come up as an option on the list. any suggestions?

    Strange it worked for me. You should double check the instructions on the page. I know someone else that had an issue. Also, it’s not my site, I’m only linking to it so I don’t really know much about how it works.

    You probably don’t have Excel 2003 Pro. I believe that the guy plans to make a version compatible with older version of excel, but that might take awhile since he would have to create a way to import the data.

    You can also check out a stat Tracker done in Flash at http://www.h2stats.com. You can’t do as much analyzing, but I think they have plans to add more stuff. Give it a try =)
