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'.

2.2.0 doesn't work with me. I reinstalled again from scratch, but the ajax pop up became 100% transparent now and the tables are messed up with different widths. Also, when I uploaded a new thing to throw, its image does not show up on the ACP Manage Eggs nor the ajax pop-up.

Hambil, you can consider me as your beta tester because I uninstalled and reinstalled again each time there is a new release before waiting for positive results

PS: Thank you for making the images bigger on the pop-up. It is much easier to decide which thing to throw!

If I had to guess you might have modified some of the templates in previous versions. Modified templates do not uninstall or update. Check the Egg Avatar templates and revert any that are modified, then reimport the xml file with overwrite.

Yes you are correct. When I viewed it using the Default Style, the tables are OK and not transparent anymore. However, the new item that I added still does not show up in the pop-up of the Default Style. When I used it to egg a member using Default style, her avatar disappeared instead. When I cleaned it, her avatar appeared again.

Any idea about this? Thanks!

Egg the avatar, then right click on it and choose display image in new window. Then copy and past a screen shot of the error text you get.

As long as I egg someone with one of the default items you give, everything is working well. But if I egg someone with an item I uploaded myself via the upload feature, it is not working.

I am sorry if I am the only one having this problem.

Hambil...

I've upgraded this mod (from 2.04 to 2.2.0) based on your instructions here...uploading all the new files and making sure I allow overwrite when importing the upgrade. The problem is that if you try to upload a new image to throw...it's not being uploaded to the correct directory. It's being uploaded to the misc directory instead of the eggs directory.

The Egg Manager, shows the new throw, but doesn't show the image you upload. Now...if you upload a new image to the egg directory via FTP, then open the Egg Manager in the Admin Control Panel, you will see the image there, with the word Throw (striked). You have to select the Add Action, Edit the new Throw and then Enable it.

Something just isn't Kosher...


Any ideas?
