Multi-Sports Scoreboard:

viewing college football scores

A small project for Versus.com that really turned into a nice project. This pure actionscript Flex builder 3 project pulls data from an external scores feed. The SWF file is designed to show both College Football and NHL (National Hockey League) scores. The scoreboard will also allow the user to click through to either a preview or a recap on the versus domain. If the game is not over, the user would see the preview, otherwise they would get redirected to the versus recap page of the game.

The feed has an auto update feature and will show scores as games progress. The single SWF but multi-purpose SWF allowed Versus.com to embed the same SWF in multiple URLs and only change flashvars.  Built in Flex builder 3 as a pure actionscript project with using a Flash FLA library for visual assests. I also leveraged the CasaLib library as much as I could. Still loving and using CasaLib. If you don’t know, go check it out: CasaLib

This project was pretty cool to show how a single SWF can support two different sport scores. Saved a ton of time as compared to building two separate projects for College Football and NHL scores.
