Currently, it's Member vs AI only.

There's no extensive tools for story generation yet, but they will be added in a future version :)

There's currently only the one world map, but a night/day system is an interesting idea indeed :D

Do you have vBShout installed? If not, please disable the vBShout Integration in vBulletin Options -> DragonByte Tech: Forumon - [DBTech] vBShout Integration Settings.

What version of vBShout do you have installed? I think you're the first person to experience (or at least report) this problem.

At any rate, it can be fixed manually by doing this:
Go to DBTech - vBShout -> Instance Management -> Add New Instance.
Set the options as per this screenshot:
Attachment 123420

Then once you've saved, hover over the "Edit" link for this newly created instance and note down the Instance ID. So if the link is [yoursite]/admincp/vbshout.php?do=modifyinstance&instanceid=26 the instance id is 26.

Go to vBulletin Options -> DragonByte Tech: Forumon - [DBTech] vBShout Integration Settings and set the Instance ID setting to the number you found in the previous step, then click Save.

It will then be safe to re-enable the Integration.

Hope that helps :)

Are you the same person who posted this to the Project Tools over at DBTech? If so, please don't post them across multiple sites.
If not, then it's been reported and I'm working with that person to figure out what happened :)

Hmm, that's really odd...
Are you able to PM me with an Admin account with "Can Administer Settings" and "Can Administer vBShout", as well as an FTP account? If so, I should be able to solve this for you :)

legion! 08 Nov 2010 19:54

Yes i am the one that posted it over there, the onlyreason i came here is because I couldnt navigate back to the section on your site where I posted it lol...I looked everywhere I know i posted it somewhere, so I jus came here and posted it up, as far as an admin account on my site I should be able to set you up...Do you know Enigma? he works with your company I think he is an administrator at my site

tagged for the time being, looks a very interesting mod to add...

legion! 10 Nov 2010 20:49

Hey i was wondering if...we changed the body parts into maybe Human body parts...so our members can create human battle people...wt like a darth vader head or sum shit like that...is it possible?

DragonByte Tech 10 Nov 2010 23:25

Changing the stock images isn't supported, they're very carefully designed and configured to work together in unison to create the monster combinations.

Adding new ones might be possible, however due to the complex nature of the mod, a strong grasp of graphical design and a working knowledge of PHP is required.
Here's the explanation I gave someone else:

Look at the files in /dbtech/forumon/includes/monsters_config - they should tell you what you need to know.

The image files that the priority array reference is in /dbtech/forumon/images/monsters/parts
