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.

Did a quick search but found nothing.

On a site I have just set vbookie up to use vcash and everything looks like its working however when I place a bet, and click bet now, the page refreshes and the bet does not show, and it also does not show in the vcash postbit display as removed.

Now after doing another refresh then the bet shows and the proper amount of vcash shows. Same with settling a bet, you select winner, click on settle, it doesn't show bet settled until you do another refresh and then it shows as settled.

Is this the way its supposed to work or should it update bets, vcash amounts, etc without having to do extra page refreshes?

No - that's not how it's meant to happen. Sounds like your database is slow to be updated, or that there is some caching going on either in your browser or server ?

No easy way to set up the weekly schedules, other than get someone else to do it On my site I have the normal moderators AND I also created a "bookmakers" group with the permissions necessary to do the vbookie stuff.
Great and again thanks for the info.

Do you know of a method that can simplify setting up say all the weeks scheduled NFL game's? Or do we have to enter them individually as it appears?

Thanks Dartho for the quick reply. We have xcache set on the server so that could be why its not updating right away, will see if thats the culprit.

Edited: found out its firefox cache thats doing it, works in chrome and IE instantly, now have to figure out what to do with firefox.

You create a new thread, and down where it says you can add a poll, there will be an option to add a vbookie event (assuming your permissions have been set right in admincp)

Having some issues with slow queries. Getting the good old copying to temp table and a healthy delay while that's done.

It's hitting the thread table so I'm guessing that's the problem as our thread table is rather large. Threads 878,024 Posts 14,841,008

Any idea if adding an index on thread.vbookie_item_id would help to speed these queries up?

i figured it out. if i edit the event..it flips the outcomes....it flips them top goes to bottom. open it up and just hit save agian and it fixes it back the right way...

any ideas.....?

edit; that was an event with only 3 items.

with more it makes them go into random places. the problem if the money placed stays in the same slot while the odds and names change slots. they stay together

I had to remove this addon sadly. vBookie was copying tables to tmp tables and locking up my forums.

I have seen other forums report this searching Google but no fix.

Has anyone had a problem like this?

My forum runs on two servers but I dont think that would be the issue would really like to know if there is a fix.

The question has been brought up here.

I had a look at this.

Firstly - please note - I am not a database guy!!

That being said, I did some tests and found that adding an index to thread.vbookie_item_id reduced the query time on my test site from 15 seconds to 0.0010 seconds.

ALTER TABLE `thread` ADD INDEX ( `vbookie_item_id` )
edit: Just re-read boggseric's post and adding the above index was his original suggestion. I made (and unmade) several changes before coming to this one change which does indeed speed things up!
