This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.8.1 Rating: (25 votes - 4.84 average) Installs: 199
Released: 14 Mar 2009 Last Update: 14 Apr 2009 Downloads: 1643
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  



A Support Project using the vBulletin Project Tool has been created to support this mod. Please make use of it if you can. Timely support will still be given in this thread, however, use of the project tool is appreciated because:
  1. I paid for it
  2. It makes searching for problems already asked by other users, and possibly solved, much easier than this long thread.
  3. It helps organize and manage issues for me, which will become even more useful as I release more mods.

Description:
Ever want to throw something at someone when you read a post? Now you can! Eggs, kisses, bullets, and more.

Video Demonstration Link

Special Notes:
  • Due to some complicated issues involving the coding for animated gifs, largely black eggs (like the bullethole) do not display properly. All that is required, if you make or find your own eggs, is that large black areas be converted to a dark grey or dark blue. I've already done this with the newest bullethole.gif, and as you can see it's not a big issue but I wanted to make everyone aware of it.
  • If you wish to uninstall please upgrade to the lastest version first, as older versions may not uninstall cleanly.

Upcoming 2.5 new features
  • Automatic (optional) integration with [tk] Post Notes (post note of "Username: Threw a <thing> at you." or "Username: Gave you a <thing>" etc.
  • Long promised post stats (how many times a post has been egged, etc.)

Features:
  • Fully Phrased.
  • Fully AJAX.
  • Can be configured to work with any credits system, or not use credits (default).
  • Comes configured for vbCredits (just turn on 'Enable Credits' in the admincp options).
  • Integrated with vB Optimise.
  • Manage your own egg images (enable/disable/delete/add).
  • Optionally have eggings effect user reputation.
  • Optional 'Who Egged Me' display in UserCP.
  • 'Eggs' can be cleaned away.
  • Entire avatars can be wiped clean.
  • Usergroup support for viewing, using, cleaning own and cleaning others.
  • Very configurable.
  • Handles animated avatars (animation stops when egged, starts again when cleaned).
  • Fully supports both GD and ImageMagick. Animated avatars do not stop in ImageMagick.
  • Optional Statistics in What's Going On.

Install:
Download the [tk] EggAvatar_2.3.4.zip file.
Unzip and upload all files in the upload directory to your forum root.
Import the product file in your admincp.
Make sure to set usergroup permissions - all are turned off by default.

Install vbAdvanced Module:
Import and configure the eggblock.xml module via vbAdvanced in your admincp.

Upgrade:
Download the [tk] EggAvatar_2.3.4.zip file.
Unzip and upload all files in the upload directory to your forum root.
Import the product file in your admincp - make sure Allow Overwrite is set to 'yes'.

Version History:
1.0 Original Version
1.1 Support for animated avatars
1.1.1 Fixed a couple minor bugs
1.2.0 Fixed a couple bugs and added file system support for avatar storage.
1.2.1 Fixed bug where function not compiled into standard php 4 was being called.
1.2.2 Fixed bug that cause out of place cost info on popup. Fixed so images no longer lose color when thrown.
1.2.3 Fixed some phrasing. Fixed (?) the bug causes database errors for some users.

2.0.1 Fixed bug with editing existing eggs in admincp.
2.0.2 Fixed bug with EI scrolling menu.
2.0.3 Added some missing phrases.
2.0.4 Fixed IE display problem. Put code in admincp image upload to only allow gifs and to resize if needed (max 50x50).
2.1.0 Full support for animated avatars. Eggs uploaded to the eggs directory but not in the database now show in the Egg Image Manager and can be added. Added Who's Online support. Fixed possible bug with missing dateline from url.
2.1.1 Fixed problem where PHP 5 function was being called.
2.2.0 Fixed problem with cleaned avatars missing dateline (really this time). Dropped back to partial animated gif support (animation stops when egged, starts when cleaned). Added checks and error messages to help with invalid path settings. Fixed bug that caused images not to display in popup. Fixed popup to display properly in all browsers no matter how many eggs are added.
2.2.1 Added additional error checking to the image manager. Fixed the upload button in the image manager.
2.2.2 Fixed uninstall issue. Fixed a couple words that weren't phrased.
2.3 Fixed permissions issues. Fixed a couple more words that weren't phrased. Added support for ImageMagick. Added support for vB Optimise. Added statistics on forum home. Changed the fade time so the eggs won't fade if the user hasn't logged in to see them yet.
2.3.1 Fixed bug in vB Optimise integration.
2.3.2 Fixed bug if paths to avatars has a leading '/'.
2.3.3 Another attempt at fixing the pop 'eggs out of the box' issue. Probably my last for a while. Good luck, cross fingers.
2.3.4 Fixes a "can't view if can't egg" permissions problem that has been plaguing some users. Adds a vbAdvanced Module.

Anyway, to fix the php issue I've uploaded a small upgrade to 2.1.1.
OK I will do that, thanks.

Meanwhile, here is a cup of coffee for Hambil.

One problem I've noticed with the 2.1.1 version is that new eggs that are added through the admin interface are being uploaded to the images/misc directory and not the images/misc/eggs directory. And I have set the directory for the eggs in this mod as images/misc/eggs/.

So there may be an issue with your coding, hambil...

I did a clean install.
Still same problem. I think I will check this again later.
See you all.

Thanks anyway, Hambil, and take your time.

PS: I downgraded to 2.0.3
For me, it is the most stable and working well.

I just did a clean install as well...

Oh well...it was good while it lasted. Uninstalled until the latest version is stable.

Just a little constructive criticism...2.0.4 was working great until you made those modifications. I'd start from there.

Good luck!

I prefer 2.0.3 than 2.0.4
The size of the images in the ajax pop-up are too small in the 2.0.4
In 2.0.3, we can see the graphics in the pop-up much clearer, and that helps people to decide which things to throw.
I also prefer to be able to upload jpg or png images too, not only gif like in 2.0.4

Good luck, Hambil, I will wait until a stable version is released.

Sounds likely - I'll get on it.

The images not showing up in the dropdown is a code bug, and has been fixed. I'm just waiting to try and find a couple other possible issues before I do another bug release.

You misunderstand It is a known bug, that I have confirmed and fixed, but I have not released the fix yet.
