- Run the stats parser, this will allows us to easily determine a player's id
- Once its done, you can determine the player's id by clicking on their name on the main page, and copying down the name of the .html page that gets used
- Now that we have both ids, we can add them to the player.alias file by adding this line: GARBAGESHARKG : PHOBOS So, now our player.alias file looks like this:
- Now, re-run the parser, and you'll see the players get aliased properly
For example, if you go to the demo page, and click on -=Garbage Shark=-G, it will take you to the player detail page, and in the address bar, you'll see that the address says 'http://gamestats.sourceforge.net/demo/players/GARBAGESHARKG.html', and the id would be 'GARBAGESHARKG'. This can be different then their name, as the parser will use guids when it has the chance to.
And, say we wanted all stats from -=Garbage Shark=-G (id: GARBAGESHARKG) to go to .[PhoboS]. (id: PHOBOS)
