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.
4.2.0 (21 August 12) Added in navigation manager Code for vBulletin 4.2, disabled old nav plugin

Mate, i know why it isnt working

if you make a template with the name: vbookie_outcomebit then its not working
but if you called it vbookie_outcomebits and you past the code, then its working.

There is a S missing in the title template title

Do you have the problem when creating threads when you type the cursor only shows and you dont see what you type until you click out of the input box?
Just installed that style on my test site with no probs either. Have you tried installing with no parent style? That's probably where your problem is ...

change to

also the "respawed! productions" link is dead. i dont know if i should just delete it or what but i edited it to direct just to his homepage and not /vbookie. it just goes to an image as it looks like his site is dead and just a placeholder.

on masterstyle>vbookie templates>vbookie

find

if its cool with you to just erase that totally then I will. if you are the new owner then you "coach" control the copywright.

I downloaded the last update for this mod and had planned to install it. But after reading the dozen or so post it appears this mod is currently screwed up?

I'd like to know if things are ok to proceed with updating, or does there need to be some revisions done to the mod 1st?

It's working for us on 4.2 as long as you add that template that's been posted about above.

Added template and now I can see the box to bet and settle, but the math isn't right.

It appears to be adding 1 in the odds.

300/100 should be 3 right ?
100/360 should not have a 1 in front of the .28

Any ideas ?

Correct.

With traditional odds you get your stake back.

If you look thru this thread you will find how to change it to the way you want it

Dumb question, but is there a way to get this to work on the default vbulletin mobile skin?

I have:
- Manually added in the vbookie templates.
- Added the original new thread code to the newthread template.

I can MAKE new vBookie post from mobile, but the actual vBookie portions don't show in the post.

Anyone tried this?
