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'.

No idea, but if you can point me toward one of the offending avatars perhaps I can try and figure it out.

Looks like you've got some rounded corners javascript running to round the avatar corners that is causing conflict in some cases.

I installed the newest update 2.2.1, not fresh install. Everything is perfect now.
I have tested it using both the Upload and FTP methods, and then used the uploaded and FTP-ed items to egg an avatar, and everything works as it should now.

Upload method:
Now the Upload works perfectly. There is no need to enable the item first. There is no strike-through either. The item is ready to use.

FTP method:
We need to add the item first. The word "Throw" will show up with a strike-through. Then we should enable that item first via the dropdown box. After we enable it, the strike through will disappear. After that, we can edit the item and put our own wording, like "Throw Shoe" if the new item is a shoe.

Suggestion to everyone:
Before testing/using the mod, please check your image path in the Admin Panel/Egg Avatar/Options
If your image path is wrong, you will get an error.

To Hambil:
Maybe adding a readme.txt will help yourself from having to answer to us with wrong image paths, etc. It will save you from some frustation too.

I like your mods, Hambil, especially when they are creative and playful. Thank you and keep up the good work!

I just overwrite with 2.2.1.
It works.
What you need to do is just to make sure that your image path in the Options is set to images/misc/eggs/

I think Hambil said to uninstall and reinstall just to make sure everything will be allright, in case your database is corrupted.

I just updated to the 2.2.1 version and now the icon next to the username has disappeared ...

EDIT .. Nevermind ... I am an idiot .. LOL .. I uninstalled and reinstalled and forgot to change the permission in the usergroups .. .

I had it set to charge 250 to wipe entire avatar, but now I can not see that option anymore and it is defaulted now to 0 to wipe entirely clean .. Where do I change that at ???

You don't. It's calculated off the number of eggs on an avatar. So if you set the clean cost to 50 and there are 10 eggs it will be 500.

However, it doesn't take into account (in the display only) new eggs you've tossed since the last page refresh. This is a known bug involving some painful YUI stuff and will eventually get fixed. It still deducts properly from your credits, the display is just off until you do a page refresh.

Not unless someone was bugged. Not being able to egg your own avatar has been there since version 1.

I'm 98% sure that has been fixed. Check that you haven't customized any of the Egg Avatar templates, reupload the latest files, and reimport with overwrite. NO NEED to uninstall first.

Cannot make this work. The error I get is "Could not find phrase 'eggavatar_invalid_path'."
I am sure it is path related but cannot seem to find where. I use VBadvanced portal on 3.8.1 and since the forum resides in the /forum directory I assume that is the problem. I can see the image fine but get that error when trying to use it. Any ideas?
