Next to the BBCode buttons at the posting form (where you enter your text when you reply or create a new topic), there is now an additional button "Generate SteamInfo BBCode".

When you click this, you are prompted for a valid AppID for which there exists a store page (such as [[Please login to see this link.]] for AppID 365590).
You are also prompted for a header color, which can be any valid HTML color name or code, like cyan or #00FFFF. Default is red.

After you have specified AppID and color, a full description of the app is generated and inserted into the text field at the current cursor position. This takes about one second.

This feature requires JavaScript to be enabled. If it does not work, first make sure that your browser is up-to-date and then report any issues in this thread.

Feedback and suggestions are welcome.


Old post
Usage:
  1. [steaminfo=color]AppID[/steaminfo]


..where "color" is any valid HTML color name or code, like cyan or #00FFFF and AppID is a a valid AppID for which there exists a store page (such as [[Please login to see this link.]] for AppID 365590). Please note that this only works for apps that you can view the store page of from your location, as your browser will fetch the game info from the Steam Storefront API directly.

If you use NoScript, you will have to allow yahooapis.com.

Examples:
  1. [steaminfo=cyan]365590[/ steaminfo]
  2. [steaminfo=#0000FF]999999[/ steaminfo]



Feedback and suggestions are welcome. Credits for the initial idea and code go to Royalgamer06.

That will help A LOT.
A bit rough around the edges when it comes to formatting, but overall awesome idea and great work!

I was glad to help!
Love to see this here now too :)
You can see examples on the REVOLT forum here:

What do you guys think of the formatting/layout?
Does it need any changes to match CS.RIN.RU style?

Keep in mind that some of the formatting is not done by us, but is part of the data.

Is it possible to have an option to put the "About The Game" and the "System Requirements" section in a spoiler tag so it can be collapsable?

Thanks for making this.
I hope people will make more good main post.
If this was much earlier I would maybe not use my main post structure. ::D

Thanks again guys.

I'd suggest to have the video next to the header

Make one for me, so it looks like this: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=70634

...so I can do them faster.

I mean like; Exclusive for SCS, you get the idea.

@Edit,

You wanted opinion? The first one (In OP spoiler) looks bad to me.

What do you guys think if the subtitles are in uppercase? (So DETAILS, SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS, etc)
Imo, would look better: more distinction between subtitle and it's body.

I don't see how, the BBCode can only have one option and one content. I suppose we could allow comma-separated parameters in the content, but that seems awkward. It's either that or multiple BBCodes, but I like that even less. This is one of the limitations of this approach to generating an info section.

Since this writes HTML on the client's side, it ignores phpBB's setting for disabling images (User Control Panel -> Board preferences -> Edit display options). Would it be possible to fix that?

Maybe, but I'll have to know phpBB's api on user settings for images
