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

Just to confirm: Is the style fix referenced in the 2nd post supposed to be entered before </head> in the "page" template? If so, it was already there and still showing a broken style. Any other suggestions on what we can do to avoid having the vBookie page displaying the header and footer issues?

EDITED: Just reread the posts near the suggested fix and realized it's not the "page" template, but the "VBOOKIE" template that needs that piece of code added.

How can you increase the number of "News and Events" displayed on the vbookie.php page?

Edited: Found it. Open vBookie.php and go down to line 406 and change the "4" number in the following line to whatever you'd like.

Edit vbookie.php search for $newsresult = $db->query_read("SELECT * FROM " . TABLE_PREFIX . "vbookie_news ORDER BY news_id DESC LIMIT 4"); and change the 4 on the end with the number of news items you want disaplyed.

Could this be used to create an NFL Pool?

Looking for a little support, if you don't mind. Our forum has been cripplingly slow for the last few days and it turns out that this query is tying up the user table in our database for at least 20 seconds each time:

Trouble is--or one of the troubles--is that I can't find where this is being executed, so I can't remove/rewrite it. Any idea?

That query is not like any in the stock vbookie. You've modified it and added that in your self somewhere along the way.

Why not search through the vbookie.php and the includes/functions_vbookie.php files and also check the plugins associated with vbookie to see if you can track it down? Failing those you could search your database and also grep your files...

create a new thread and check the option to make it a vbookie event. When you submit the thread, you will be taken to the next step which is creating the event.

Also I have vbseo installed and when you click on the "Bet Statistics" tab you get a 404 error ??


http://www.collegefootballforum.info...e.php?do=stats

This error might be a result of a empty query set, due to the fact no one can bet

One other thing this makes no sense, where do you get vBExperience401_20100803.zip ?? I searched every forum here I can't find it , so I can't find \extras\Addons\vBookie.xml either


You can now use also vBExperience as a cash system.

If you have already vBExperience installed, you just need the plugin for it. Download vBExperience401_20100803.zip and install ZIP\extras\Addons\vBookie.xml as a product. After that choose "Custom" as your "Cash/Points System".

Ok I am starting a game on my site using this I need to be able to do this

1. Each week I post 15 games with lines to bet on users bet vcash on them
2. I want them all in 1 thread not 15 threads

How do you do that? So users can pick and choose between 15 games each week in 1 thread ? If you start with 30 outcomes will that work ? I don't think so.

Basically I need the ability to add as many games with 2 outcomes as I want to ONE thread.
