Versus – Multi-Sport Scoreboard

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.


Versus – NHL Playoffs and Finals scoreboard

NHL Playoffs and Finals scoreboard:

This scoreboard is based on the College football/NHL scoreboard (see below). Basically, a new skin and only providing NHL playoff scores. The scoreboard is on the latest and greatest version of Versus.com and will be updated when the season reaches the finals (Go Flyers!).

The app was built as a pure actionscript project in Flex builder 3, I extended the base classes I created for the College football/NHL scoreboard. I also created a new NHL Playoff FLA library for the new skin. This one was pretty smooth but we could have had a few more features if our data feed would have provided the additional data. The app has an auto-update for keeping the scores recent. A nice re-skin project for sure.

Just an image of the rollover state:

Starting a ‘Nice Move’ – Series

In a post that will show off a ‘Nice Move’, I’ll post here. Some will be very simple but to me it’s something worth noting. I’ve been an Actionscript Developer for 10+ years and even now I see things that may be classic nice moves, or new ones for me. Feel free to throw one out there.
