For vb 4.x: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=239817

This is a late-Beta, it has been tested fairly extensively and all the big kinks should be worked out. That said, once this hits more sites a couple other bugs are bound to work themself out. It works going back at least as far as the 3.6 branch of vBulletin, not sure about 3.5.

This is the free version of The Gameroom by http://vbgaming.org, the follow up / expansion of the Casino plugin for vBulletin. It improves the multiplayer gaming aspects by bringing in more games, and allowing users more options when starting and joining games.

- Roulette history was showing '37' when it landed on '0'
- Chess - Optional grid labels / moves in chat box

Updating:
1) Upload the framework files, they should go into the main forum folder with the .swf files folder. You will only need to do this once, which is why they are in a seperate file.
2) Upload the files in the main package, make sure everything overwrites old copies.


*********************************
** Common Problems **
*********************************

Non-english letters are not working properly
This is a problem with flash player and has been in there bug tracker for a long time. The workaround is to edit the "gameroom" template, remove the line that ways "wmode='transparent'", the downside it your popup menus will come up behind the flash box, rather then in front of it.
Images are working in IE, but not in Firefox
You likely have some form of image hot linking turned on, it is causing the requests for the images to be blocked.
Locked self out of admin panel
In the tools folder there is a file called 'makemeadmin.php', upload this and go to that page. It will make you admin, don't leave it on your server when you are done.
Updated and it is acting funny
Make sure all of your files are up to date. When you update ensure that all files are overwritten. Having mix matched files will cause funny behaviour. You may also have to clear your cache and reload the page after uploading a new gameroom.swf file.

*********************************
** Uninstall **
*********************************

If you want to uninstall the following procedure will get you through it without tossing any DB errors:

1) Dissable the product, this shuts down all the plugins. If the files are removed and plugins are still active you may see errors on your site.

2) Undo the template changes, changes where made to the navbar template and the postbit / postbit legacy template.

3) Delete all files. If the files are still present and you remove the database entries by uninstalling the product anyone that attempts to access one of them will cause a error. The Flash Banner could cause many as it could still be making calls after the template changes are undone.

gameroom.php
gameroom.swf
gameroomBanner.swf
gameroom/*
includes/cron/gameroom_nightly.php


4) Uninstall the product file, which removes all database entries, that means the following are removed:

tables with 'gameroom_' as a prefix
gameroom_cash field within the user table

Amazing Mod - compliments my board really well.

Just a question / request that I've had only on the first couple of games...

1. All in on Texas Holdem - in a massive game it takes a long time to go round the game at the pace set by the blind. An All In option would be amazing.
2. More Multiplayer games? Roulette could be done MP? Maybe even blackjack? (All against the one dealer)

Otherwise amazing Mod

When you try to beta test it by playing against your self, with two different accounts (same IP address).

Player Admiral
Player Bob

Player Bob had two pairs(won), but Admiral had only one pair(lost).
And the pot went to Admiral.

But admiral was the person to create the game. And Admiral is dealer.
So I am assuming to prevent multiple account plays against each other the IP address
if you are playing against your self, the pot goes to the first person who enters the room with the same IP address?

What happens when people are within the same LAN of the IP address?????

You have to do teh administration via the settings.php file

No admin control panel support enabled for this. So far as I can see

Andrew Seems like there is something missing, though I have set the user ID as admin in the settings.php I cannot see an admins tab. Also I still have the same issue with the chess.

Thanks.

/*
* List of UserIDs who have special priveledges.
* Admin users can
* - add / settle events in the sports pool
* - use the cash adjuster
* - edit language
* Too add multiple users seperate by comma:
* $this->adminIDs = array(1, 2, 3);
*
*/
$this->adminIDs = array(58);

You have to change the value in red and not pink

Some may get confused by it as, the pink is commented out. And it has to be your user ID and not the USERGROUP id.

Hope it helps.

The admin panel is now there, Cheers Admiral.

However the chees is still unavailable for users to start the game.
