Here is a wish list i would like to see in this hack.
  • More tournament types: 2v2 3v3 and so on
  • some sort of results page where it shows the current ranking of a team/player with an ongoing tournament.
  • Challenge feature
  • add banners to the create new tournament.

I have a lot of ideas and willing to pay for some custom work to be added.

thanks banana for your great work.

Instead of adding 2v2, 3v3 and stuff, why not just change the "1v1" option to "Standard", and whenever "Teams" is selected people will know what the rules are anyways.

Because, in my case, I run 4 variations of teams. 2v2, 4v4, 8v8, and 16v16. It is good to leave no questions when a user views a tourney.

Ah I see. Well maybe the selection field can be replaced by a custom field so the creator can put "4v4" or something for the type of tourney.

You can do that by replacing phrase, but it would replace for all your tournaments. A temp solution until then.

I think maybe just have an input field and the creator can put whatever text they want in that field would be nice..

Not everyone on our forums would understand what LMS means anyways.

My wish list:

- Ability to specify games and assign a tournament to a game group
- Ability to assign a moderator to one or more tournaments. That moderator will only have edit access on the tournaments he/she is assigned to
- Ability to start a tournament even if the number of participants isn't reached. This would be good where many tournaments are running at the same time.

Ah hell Strafe, Don't get all technical on me. I know it's a product. I was typing fast and not thinking.

No, I went to import the product and got a Database Sql error. Now when you try to view a post or a pm, I get a whacked out Database Sql error. I went and delete the database entries and that didn't help. I check the templates, nothing there either. I'm drawing a blank.

Upgrade the product and no data will be lost

I also think their needs to be an "Upload" button as well, so after browsing to an image, they can upload, or then get the error message, instead of just the edit profile option?

Just my thoughts.
I'm going to try adding in a image resizer script for team logos.

I am going to change 1v1 to 'Single Elimination' and then have option for max and minimum number in team for it to enter.

Have a look at the post below by RTO

Keep up the good work!

It might be better to just limit the size like avatar is limited to 80x80 or 100x100 which is the profile size, resizer tend to dumb down the quality and still doesn't reduce the loading time

I'm sure people uploading team avatars knows how to resize an image

Edit: Also right now the hall of fame populates random forums members in it when no one has joined/won any tournaments when it should be empty at start. Is there a way to turn off the hall of fame for forums that only want to run team tournaments? Thanks!

Edit 2: Can we hide the sidebar on the tournament detail display but have the sidebar on the home display? It's not very needed on the tournament details display and takes up valuable space

Edit 3: Team tournament wins and joins does not show in postbit since it's only showing the individual scores, any remedy to this?

Edit 4: Another suggestion is to have the team avatars to show up at tournament detail list or team list, maybe on hover over so it doesn't mess with the layout?

Hi,
Has anyone encountered this ==>

Today I scheduled a tournament for Friday October 3rd at 6:30 pm my time with is GMT-5:00 Eastern Time. After Submitting the tournament the time was stamped at 2pm EST.

I have checked the time setting in VB options and it is set to GMT-5:00 also in my usercp the time is also set to GMT-5:00

Is there any way to resolve this?

Also After submitting the tournament there was a message that says " could not find Phrase "
How do i correct this?





Thanks

The time must be submitted in GMT+0 (Friday October 3rd at 11:30 pm +/- 1 for DST)

I am currently adding phrases for all redirects and they will be included in next release.

I'm sure people uploading team avatars knows how to resize an image
By re-sizer I meant that the image uploaded gets re-sized to appropriate dimensions (set in tournament options). I tested my script with 17.5kb image, after uploading (and being re-sized by tournament modification) its file-size was reduced to 4.5kb.
