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.
4.2.0 (21 August 12) Added in navigation manager Code for vBulletin 4.2, disabled old nav plugin

It would seem that means you have not configured your currency system correctly in vBookie ?

[edit - Posted before seeing MrSinister's post. I suggest following his recommendations if possible]

I may be a complete noob, but I installed all of the .php files in their places and the product.

I see the vbookie tab, but when I click on it, it goes back to my CMS.

I see the option to add thread as vbookie event and can create threads with the option. Then I am redirected to my CMS because apparently the /vbookie.php link is broken somehow.

What am I doing wrong? Do I need to install more stuff?

Thanks,

Matt

Is there a way to automatically create vbookie events based on the current sports schedules somehow?

I am getting the following error at the home VBookie homepage. Everything else seems to work OK, any ideas?


Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /home/***/***/forums/vbookie.php on line 721

edit vbookie.php and search for:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and replace with


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

there should be 2 occurrences on those line numbers

I'm updating to 1.11 soon, do we know if Vbookie is good for 11 yet. I'm a few versions behind on VB, so I'll be skipping a few on the way to 11.

I had the old vBookie on my site, and just installed this one. One little inconvenience I've noticed...

Whenever I create an event to bet on, I get two separate events. One of them is for the actual thread in question, the other appears to be for an event that was created under the old vBookie system, so for every bet I have two separate events on two separate threads.

Any idea how to fix this so the event only shows up once and doesn't access what appears to have been an old event under the old vBookie which is no longer installed on my forum?

Edit - Looks like I found it. Under the thread table is a vbookie_item_id value, if I edit those to all be reset to 0, in theory, it should wipe out this duplication issue.

Edit 2 - So, long story longer, if you're having the same problem I had, run this query:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Where [prefix]_ is the table prefix for your vBulletin tables, if you have those.
