Necrodancer score bot now live on twitter!

I just finished the first version of my twitter bot! It will scour the leaderboards every 10 minutes, and if somebody has improved their score it will post a tweet. Perfect for keeping track on whether your nemesis has beaten you, or for stalking your favourite player even more!

It currently supports top 10 of
Score
Speedrun
deathless

of all available characters, and also All-char ofcourse. It can support any leaderboard, and could track up to the whole leaderboard, instead of top 10, but I've filtered out the less interesting ones to keep down on the number of tweets. If your favourite leaderboard is missing, or you think there should be a higher number of players do tell.

The format of the tweets isn't supersexy atm, but will probably be improved later.

Bug reports and feature requests are very welcome, code will come later when I've cleaned it up a bit.

So now go and brush up your deathless eli scores and generate some tweets! :))

Awesome! The format doesn't look bad at all, but maybe put an exclamation mark at the end of each tweet? :P

Don't forget to give the account a profile picture!

This is awesome! I'm not sure I really understand the deathless portion, though. I don't see a deathless leaderboard in-game, so how does that work? I don't even understand the tweets about deathless, really. I'm so out of the loop D:

You have to enable deathless mode to be able to choose the leaderboard for it in the menu.
The numbers mean <wins>-<zone you died in>-<level you died in>, so 8-2-2 means that you won 8 games, and then died on zone 2 level 2.

I'll update the tweet format for deathless so it's more readable.

By the way, if you're wondering about those Coda updates of mine, I happened to find a way to unlock him by accident today when fooling around with the level editor (here's how: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ho6OE9Z7q80 ). Needless to say, I got a bit... excited because of this discovery and started playing hardcore mode as him.

Now that this is out, please don't fix it. :cry2

I suspected it was something like that, felt a bit silly to advertise and promote a bug though.

I wonder why he isn't enabled yet, is he buggy?

I would wager that Ryan simply wants to hold onto her until the full version is released.

Maybe they're still testing if it's even possible to beat the game with him.

Maybe. Who knows...
