Topic: Arcade Game Mod - SQL Query Help

I need a mysql query to count top scores of every user from all games, descending sorted.

I´ve the following tables:

arcade_games
- game_id
- game_name
- game_filename
- game_desc
- game_width
- game_height
- game_cat

and

arcade_ranking
- rank_id
- rank_game
- rank_player
- rank_score
- rank_date

The output should look like this: First Place USER1 with 30 highscores, Second place USER2 with 20 Highscores and Third place USER3 with 10 highscores

I´m not a programmer please help ...

Re: Arcade Game Mod - SQL Query Help

Whats wrong with this query?

SELECT username, MAX(rank_score) , COUNT(*) as total
FROM arcade_ranking, arcade_games, users
WHERE rank_game = game_filename AND rank_player = id
GROUP BY username ORDER BY total DESC LIMIT 3

This query collects all scores and not only the highscores. It makes no difference of using MAX(rank_score) or only rank_score, the result is always the same ...

Re: Arcade Game Mod - SQL Query Help

ango: Because max returns the max from the returned results.
I'm not even sure what you're asking for though
Do you just want to grab the number of entries in the highscore table per user and sort by that?

I want to grab the top highscores of each game per user.

Re: Arcade Game Mod - SQL Query Help

That's different from what you said originally and is different from what I said tongue
Anyways, just answer this: Would those 30/20/10 highscores be from ONE game, or ALL the games combined?
And if it's for one game, do you want this to only return for one game or do you want it to be ordered by the game ID first and then by the number of highscores?

Re: Arcade Game Mod - SQL Query Help

i think i get it

example

ok i just played 10 games i got 10 high scores you played 20 games and you got 20 high scores and ango played 30 games and he got 30 high scores

the person who has the most high scores is first and so on

os it would be like this
First Place ANgo with 30 highscores, Second place Smartys with 20 Highscores and Third place dharmil with 10 highscores

Re: Arcade Game Mod - SQL Query Help

Yes, dharmil is right.
Sorry, that I did not clearly expressed what it means.

I´d like to create a small statistic block in front of the arcade game mod.
Not to graphic, just simple layout and easy to administrate like the fundamental idea of punbb.

Re: Arcade Game Mod - SQL Query Help

ah, OK

select username, count(*) as total_scores from arcade_ranking inner join users on (users.id = arcade_ranking.rank_player) group by arcade_ranking.rank_player order by total_scores desc LIMIT 3

Re: Arcade Game Mod - SQL Query Help

thanx a lot, I´ll try ist.

For the moment I´ve fixed this with an "is_topscore" entry in the highscoretable. Maybe it´s better for later statistics.

Re: Arcade Game Mod - SQL Query Help

I´ve tried the query but the result is not correct. This query collects all highscore entries per user. It counts also the 2., 3., 4. ...place of a user not only topscore (1.place).

Re: Arcade Game Mod - SQL Query Help

Oh, I thought you wanted all the highscores
Did you say you added a column is_topscore to rows on arcade_ranking? Then just change my query to

select username, count(*) as total_scores from arcade_ranking inner join users on (users.id = arcade_ranking.rank_player) where arcade_ranking.is_topscore = 1 group by arcade_ranking.rank_player order by total_scores desc LIMIT 3
