Please See the first post for a F.A.Q.
I will endevour to link to useful posts within this thread there as I spot them. You should check there before posting issues etc.

This is a port of vBookie for vBulletin 3.5 by Andreas which was a port of vBookie - vBulletin Betting Hack by tjdrico. Permission was given by tjdrico to port this.

vBookie is a 'bookmakers' or betting extension to vBulletin. It enables authorised members to post Events and Outcomes that forum members can bet on. Each Outcome has its own set of odds, and odds can be modified through the life of an Event (bets that are placed are stored with the prevailing odds, so even if the odds change, your users are paid at the correct rate).

Once the results are known, Events can be settled and forums members awarded their winnings.

vBookie uses its own vCash by default, but this has no more use than as 'bragging rights'.

Although vBookie does not have any built-in facility to integrate with any other store hacks, it's a very simple job to hack vBookie itself to integrate it with any store/points system you care to use.

Install Instructions
1. Unzip product file
2. Upload files from 'Upload' folder to your forum
3. Install product XML
4. Edit "newthread" template as per readme.txt ionstructions
5. Set usergroup permissions
6. Set vBookie settings
7. Enjoy.
8. Check out Dismounted's Activity Stream addon
9. Click Mark As Installed and Rate

Upgrade instructions
same as above, but undo edits made in point 4 if upgrading from pre 4.0.7! (see readme.txt for more info)

Version Control
4.0.0 (19 Jan '10 ) - Initial Release
4.0.1 (21 Jan '10 ) - Removed some junk from templates, added enable private bets option
4.0.2 (24 Jan '10 ) - fixed options for hiding vcash, added some more stuff to teh settings screen, added some vCash utilities (reset balances, give to everyone, set default balance) and fixed some template bugs.
4.0.3 (25 Jan '10) - fixed bugs I introduced in 4.0.2 see post #109
4.0.4 (25 Jan '10) - fixed time zone not being saved, can delete events, + plus a couple other things.
4.0.5 (Australia Day '10) - no longer uses bitfields for permissions, fixed vCash display, fixed stats page error
4.0.6 (27 Jan '10) - fixed TABLE PREFIX issue in vBookie stats page
4.0.7 (23 Mar '10) - fixed redirect bug when editing events, fixed display of cash holdings in events, added plugin to make template mods (no template mods needed now) and updated code to 4.0.2 standards, added hooks for vbcredits integration.
NOTE 0- if upgrading from pre 4.0.7, you will need to eitehr revert your "newthread" temp[late, or manually undo template edits as there is now a plugin which does this for you. Check teh readme.txt in the archive for more info.
4.0.8 (31 May '10) - hopefully fixed bug with updating number of outcomes when editing events. To upgrade from previous version (4.0.7) just overwrite vbookie.php
4.0.9 (25 July 10) - Added ability to select Reputation points for currency. Phrased had coded text. Fixed bug in displaying vCash balance in postbit.

Tried that and it does let me add a new event. the original url was..

http:///forum/showthread.php/1581-this-is-a-test

I changed it to. http:///forum/vbookie.php?t=1581&do=newevent

and it works no problem, so it looks like a rewrite url problem

gone through the url rewrite options in vbulletin, and changing them doesn't rectify it either.

Hmmm... tried to install this today and have followed all the instructions but no VBookie link on the navbar or the option to add events in new threads?

We did have a previous install on 3.8x that worked fine.

4.0.7 used.

As simple an install as they come.

I do have a minor issue where on the vBookie page my style gets a touch messed up. Top right corner links pushed over right, top spacing gone, and spacing beneath the navbar / breadcrumbs is gone.

If I could be pointed in the right direction to fix this I would greatly appreciate it. When we launch next week and begin placing sponsor banners this will be an issue.

Thanks again and I just love this mod!

@Frankie - when you upgrade to vBulletin 4, did you disable the vBookie plugins or product, and is it still disabled after installling the new vBookie?

@TheBish - Sounds like you are viewing using Internet Explorer in "Compatibility Mode" - try turning this off

Man I wish that were the case. I am viewing the same issue in all browsers (IE8, FF, Chrome, Opera, Safari).

I am almost positive it is my custom design. I cannot tell if there is a difference in the vb base style although it does shift to the right a touch. However, due to the style it does not really do much. I just cannot tell what is causing the issue.

Ah - I see now - didn't notice the up top links.

Try this:

edit your VBOOKIE template and replace everything between the <head> and </head> tags with

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Thanks for the prompt reply mate...

In the product manager, the following message is displayed:

'Warning: Plugins are currently globally disabled via config.php.'

As such, I've removed the appropriate line in the config file and all seems to be fine now!

Many thanks for taking the time to re-release and upgrade this software!

I read here that people have similar bugs with vbookie stats. (4.0.7)

I get a database error with: Query was empty

What is the workaround??

And is there a way to show your vcash-amount near your posts? (like joindate, location an no. of posts)

I'm suprised that issue is happening - but the way to get around it would be to create an event.

vCash should already be showing in your postbit template.

Dartho, is there a work around for this problem? < I've tried all sorts of things and it just isn't having any of it
