What does it do?
This is a checkers plugin for my Play by post gaming mod. It allows members to play checkers against each other within a forum thread.

What can I use it for?
The main aim of games is fun but you could also run tournaments as well

Live Demo
A live demo of this mod can be seen on my own forums here:

  • Javascript powered checkers game within a fourm thread.
  • Admin options:
    • Board Rotation (play with white at top or bottom)
    • Force board rotation (decide if players can override the default setting)
    • Private mode (only players can comment while game is in progress)
    • Image directory
    • pbpg_path
  • Interface for setting options by members
  • Member options:
    • Board rotation (if allowed by admin)
    • White player username/userid
    • Black player username/userid
    • Private mode (only players can comment while game is in progress)
  • Status changing commands (resign, stalemate)
  • Tournaments and ladders integration. (Requires T+L v 4.0-0.1 a3+)
  • Member statistics (games played/won/lost/drawn)

Planned features

4. Select the Manage Plugin Configurations option from the play by post gaming menu
5. Against Chess, select the create new configuration option.
6. Fill out the settings and save.
7. Create or edit an existing forum and assign the configuration you just created to it.

  • 4.0-0.1 a2
    • Initial release

  • This was forked from the chess mod and most of the features are the same, I was going to release this immediatly as a beta but decided to hold off on that until I have some proper images. The mod currently uses the chess pawn and king for pieces; this will be rectified in the beta 1 release with proper draughts pieces.

Please DO NOT repost this mod on other vbulletin resource sites.

Translations may be posted in this thread, however the product isn't fully phrased at the moment so translations will be harder to do.

If you want/need to contact me, best thing is to pm me on that site, username Carnage.

Hmm this doesn't seem to be working. First of all the image paths are incorrect, but nothing seems to happen either when I try to click on a piece. For whatever reason the image paths assume installation in the domain root, rather than a /forum subdirectory. Is that the same for base functionality maybe?

There are two settings controlling the paths; one for the pbpg_plugins path and the other for the images path.

To change them go into the pbpg admin panel and click edit configuration next to the checkers configuration you have setup. The options are at the bottom and default to /pbpg_plugins/ and /pbpg_plugins/images/ simply change these paths to be correct (perhaps add /forums to the front of both paths.) and everything should work.
