Question on how to gather info from finished game

#1
Hello everyone,

This may sound a bit odd, but i want to withdraw some game info from, for example, a MMO, and display it through an arduino board on a secondary screen. I want to have my character stats and/or chatbox (or other stats that are usually not on the regular UI) displayed on this smaller screen whenever i'm playing. Is this possible in CryEngine games? Do i need to add some sort of plugin to the game to allow this screen as a peripheral?

This is not default functionality of CRYENGINE but can be implemented.
It could be as simple as saving out an XML file with stats and reading this XML file from the other application in specific intervals.
For cross platform communication you would need to setup your own networking logic to transfer the data and update the secondary client.
