How do I add tournaments or announcements?

Click Competitions in the navbar then click new and under the dropdown menu you can create new tournaments, ladders, announcements, etc.

Before I add new features I'm going to redo the styling and fix any bugs.

KHALIK 24 Mar 2010 17:56

Another bug found.

https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2010/03/14.jpg

Unable to delete (nothing happens when clicked on)

When clicked on it but nothing happens. I have administrator access with all settings enabled under tournament permission group just for the record. p.s. Thank you for version 4.02 release.

Have you re-uploaded clientscript/javascript_competitions.js for latest version?

Also you may need to clear your browser cache as it may be caching the javascript and so not loading the new one

KHALIK 24 Mar 2010 18:47

It worked.

I logged onto another PC and it worked, therefore it must have been the browser cache.

Thank you.

ErickLGonzalez 24 Mar 2010 23:24

Another bug:

When you create a ladder and then click on a username and then click on "Challenge Player" link ladders.php?do=insertchal&lid=&u2= you get the following error message: Error. Invalid ladder

betts02 24 Mar 2010 23:53

Is this the same as the v3.8 od but just coded to work with v4.0 ?

Or is there any changes, additions, etc as i have this on v4.0 already

KHALIK 25 Mar 2010 04:10

Bugs found.

When users are clicking on;

1) "Join Tournament" nothing happens, even after they have cleared up/removed temp files and browser cache.
-- Possible cache issue? or something.

2) LADDER: When a user insert ladder challenge, he gets a error message something like invalid ladder.

3) TOURNAMENT: The swap player function is not working.

4) TOURNAMENT: As administrator, unable to delete players (no msn typish icon beside player name)

The user groups settings are fine.

Trek 25 Mar 2010 18:11

Thanks for porting this to vB4! Installing now!

Trek 25 Mar 2010 18:33

Found one small bug.

The auto insert into quicklinks doesn't appear to work. Nice work as always though, thanks!

Trek 25 Mar 2010 18:52

A few more things. These might be part of the styling issues you mentioned, but the "Display Order" and "Controls" columns when viewing categories appear to be swapped with each other.

Also, you can change the display order on that screen, but there's no way to save the new order. (editing the categories works fine though, so not too big a deal).

When creating a new tournament, it says the time should be entered in GMT+0. Any way you can make that so it defaults to the member creating it's timezone? Basically GMT+0 it in the background? Less confusion that way.

Another bug:

When editing the rules, you can't save them. You only have an "Edit" and "Cancel" button when editing the rules. Clicking "Edit" returns you to the main competitions page without saving.

ShadyUS 27 Mar 2010 23:31

On the far right of the Competitions navbar, there should be a 'New' dropdown

Check your Usergroup Permissions, there will be two seperate permission blocks, one for tournament permissions and one for ladder permissions

ShadyUS 28 Mar 2010 00:10

Oh alright, i didnt see the tournament permissions. My bad, thanks!

It is a modification for displaying the results and managing tournaments/ ladders. So you can use it for any games you want.

Yes, when team logos are uploaded, they will lose their transparency.

Another mod I'm glad to see make it across to vB4 :D.

A few minor things that I'm not sure count as bugs or requests, none the less;
  • If when creating a ladder/tournament you don't enter a title and/or description then you get an error message (as expected), however there is no "back" button for the user to navigate away. This also happens in a ladder if you try to set a challenger to challenge themselves.
  • Editing an announcement/rules automatically adds "edited by", even if the user has "Show edited by note on edited messages?" set to no in their user group options.
  • The rules page doesn't take up the full width available and has a weird line beneath it.
  • You can admin-add users to tournaments but you can't to ladders.
  • "Team Gamertag" doesn't appear to do anything (superseded by "Team Tags"?)
  • The tournament filters don't search within a category, subsequently if there are relevant tournaments within a category then you can't access them as the link for the category is simply tournaments.php?c=X (ie. without the relevant filter).

I think that's all for now, keep up the good work :).

  6. The tournament filters don't search within a category, subsequently if there are relevant tournaments within a category then you can't access them as the link for the category is simply tournaments.php?c=X (ie. without the relevant filter).
I think that's all for now, keep up the good work :).

  1. added back link
  2. implemented in next version
  3. fixed in next version
  4. i'll add that in another version
  5. someone feature requested it, i think they wanted to use it as a field for xbox gamertags or something
  6. fixed in next version

Thanks for the quick reply and update :).

A few more minor things;
  1. If you try to set a challenger to challenge themselves in a ladder there's an error message without a 'back' button.
  2. Expanding 'Tournament List' breaks the table layout.
  3. When creating a PM via the 'PM All Competitors' button, the post icon variable doesn't work which causes a broken image after the message title.
  4. When viewing a tournament, the collapsible image is collapse_blocksubhead.gif which I think should be collapse_40b.png?
  5. I have 'Stats in Profile' enabled in the settings but can't see any difference to a user's profile.

dippetas 30 Mar 2010 23:26

is there a way to implement a league option?

Jamie G 30 Mar 2010 23:51

Would like to see a Double Elimination and League option added.

I have a custom worked on version with Pay to play built in as well. Any chance we can see this happening for vB4 Bananna? I'd be willing to donate to see this happen.

WNxWakko 01 Apr 2010 06:17

Is this version backwards compatable to v3.8?

kasht 02 Apr 2010 14:02

I am with Jamie G. I'm installing this regardless, but a Double Elimination mode will bring this Mod to a whole different level, and a lot more useful for gaming communities out there that want to run online tournaments the way it is done at a competitive level. I'm willing to assist in any beta testing for this to happen.

As for Pay to Play, I like the concept, not the name lol. But adding the option to make the tournament a Paid or Free tournament is a great addon, as part of the incentive for tournaments is usually prize money, which can easily be obtained via Paypal or similar method.

Just my 2 cents! ;)

  4. fixed
  5. Should be appearing for you, check you have the template hook profile_stats_pregeneral in your templates memberinfo_block_statistics and memberinfo_block_aboutme

Thanks again for the prompt reply and update :).
  1. I've found another few;
    • when you try to add another team (competitions.php?do=addteam) and you've already reached the maximum you're allowed
    • when challenging someone who can't recievie PMs (ladders.php?do=insertchal).
    • if you attempt to challenge the same team/user twice in a row (ie when a challenge is still pending)
  2. This;
    http://img62.imageshack.us/img62/927/11144880.png
  3. If there's no easy way to get the post icons to work then yeah that'd be fine.
  4. Thanks.
  5. Apologies, I was expecting it to be an additional tab like "Friends" "Blogs" etc. but I had a look again and just noticed it near the bottom on the "About Me" tab :).

I also found a few more issues;
  1. When a user requests to join a team they should get a pop up/notification to say that it first needs to be approved by a leader because currently it *appears* to the end user that it hasn't work.
  2. On a ladder list, the option to remove another user gets truncated rather than wrapped;
  3. http://img718.imageshack.us/img718/6905/69984718.png
  4. When submitting scores, there's a box for uploading screenshots but no way to upload any (I tried entering a url of an image but didn't see it appear anyway on the results screen). this box does not appear if you are doing a team ladder.
  5. If you create a team ladder, clicking on the team name on the ranking tab takes you to (/competitions.php?do=viewteam) rather than bring up the pop up containing the option to challenge.
  6. A user is able to report a challenge, before any scores are submitted, but this doesn't get put through to the "reported matches" section. I can't think of a reason why someone would report a challenge before any scores have been submitted (as they could just reject the challenge) so maybe it'd be simpler to just remove the report link until after a user has entered scores?
  7. If you admin insert a ladder challenge then on ladders.php?do=challenges it pulls two seemingly random team members to display under "match" rather than team names.
  8. When viewing "Your challenges" on a ladder, the column titles are centred but the contents are aligned left which, without column borders, makes it a bit confusing to look at.
  9. The 'user can't receive PMs' error message seems to also be based off whether they are able to track PMs (Can Use Message Tracking) rather than just the "Maximum Stored Messages" usergroup setting.

Requests:
  • Send the team owner/leader(s) a notification when someone has requested to join their team.
  • If a user doesn't have permission to view tournaments or ladders then the "Competitions" tab in the navbar should be hidden from them.
  • As a team owner, if you promote another member to co or full leader then still be able to demote them (to co-leader or regular member).
  • Disallow HTML to be entered into category names as on competitions.php?do=categories, you can enter (and display) an image as a title.
  • Add a "My Ladders" filter, which would display all ladders a user had entered (either as an individual or as part of a team).
  • A notification when a user has accepted/rejected your challenge.


Thanks again for all your hard work on this mod :).

Is this mod now out of Beta stage pal???

Shadawg 03 Apr 2010 20:50

Yeh its outta the beta stage.....

Jamie G 03 Apr 2010 23:36

Banana,

As already stated I'm loving the mod.

I'm looking for some help getting it to work properly with my custom set-up.

http://consolefrag.com - at the moment, I have all sorts of bugs which are being worked on. Frontpage slideshow hates IE, need to get the menu made priority over it etc. But you can't actually change any of the settings for tournaments and ladders as I don't have the standard navbar.

Can you contact me as per the PM to see if you can get this sorted for me.

Obviously I'll pay / donate for your time.

Cheers.

@bananalive: Any plans for Double Elimination as a new tournament mode for a future release?

What do you mean without registration?

And can someone here please explain the difference between the different types of competitions that this mod offers? I am a bit confused on what to use for what type of competition.

Ladders
Tournaments
Single Elimination
And any others?

Thanks.

EDIT: It's just that there is WAYY too much options in this mod from the viewer side (not admincp) and it gets really confusing on what you gotta do. Maybe a written manual would be nice? some screenshots etc? Like describing what you should do for what type of competition.

EDIT AGAIN: Could you also put a feature in, so that if a team doesn't get any new members within x days, the team is deleted and the team leader is sent a PM with a warning x days BEFORE the scheduled deletion that his team could be deleted?
This is because I want to give permission to anyone on my site to create a team.

Thanks once again.

Meaning that we can't see your ladders/Tournaments without having to register to your forums.

How does the javascript in this script degrade? I know the 3.8 version did not degrade gracefully at all. But the more I use AJAX with my own mods, the more I see how essential javascript degrading gracefully is. Especially with the number of complaints I've received using the old version on my forums.

Which means there is no 2nd place, then the next 2 people are tied for 3rd place. (which means there is no 4th place, so the next person would be in 5th, etc.)

Just keep using it, the system will seperate them as they get more wins or losses.


Remember to put in the final score of the game, ONLY if the higher number is the winner, otherwise just use a 1 for winner & leave the loser at 0. (note for future.. reverse scoring for games like Golf :))

I found a bug. =]
I made a team called: Alky's Team, and now on the tournament page it says: Alky\'s Team. See image below.

Also it would be nice if there is a "My Team" button, where you can see all the teams your on.

Overall amazing plugin, love it. Keep up the good work.

How do I finish both LMS type tournaments? I have players in the tourny, I started the tourny, and gave them points by double clicking in the score column and putting in there score.

When I hit finish however it says: "You have not submitted any results.".

It does that for both LMS type tournaments. So how do I finish them?

Gamelobby 21 Apr 2010 21:10

"Both LMS type"...?

There is only one LMS & one Single Elimination type of tournament.
Do you have a link.?

My LMS works fine.

wampforum 22 Apr 2010 09:41

have a little problem. set up a ladder which currently has 29 players on it but the page will only show 26 and I can find no way of seeing the other 3, is it possible to extend the number of players shown or at the least the ability to look at the others on a next page?

Also would it be possible for admin/mods to be able to add players to the ladders?

wittebolx 22 Apr 2010 14:34

for some weird reason my registered members are not allowed to view the tournaments and ladders. It's even more weird when you consider i gave them the same rights as an administrator for both blocks. any ideas why people are still locked out of the mod?

nishant.soni 22 Apr 2010 23:19

Should be at the bottom of each usergroup's options/permissions

It might not necessarily be at the bottom.
