Not Supported Is in Beta Stage  

RPG Integration Hack BETA by Bitsys
(vBulletin versions 2.2.6?, 2.2.7, 2.2.8, 2.2.9, and 2.3.0)

This hack combines several RPG hacks into one and adds a battle hack. The hacks included in this hack are:

In addition to re-releasing thse hacks, I have added features to all of them (or else there would be no point in re-releasing).
  • The RPG hacks are now all editable via the admin control panel.
  • The itemshop has been somewhat optimized and some fixes are included that reduce queries in showthread.php and itemshop.php . Also, Lesane's Store Hack has been integrated with the Itemshop. This can be toggled in the admin cp.

This means that the RPG hacks are database driven and have been partially integrated with the Itemshop. This was necessary in order to make a battle hack, which is also included.

Since most people are familiar with the RPG and Itemshop hacks, I will give a brief description of the Battle hack. If you want more information about either of the other two hacks, then refer to their original posts or download the .zip file and read the "readme.txt". If you are a visual learner, then you can scroll down to the second post in this thread, which contains the pictures of all of these hacks.


Battle Features:
  • The battle format is turn-based.
  • HP, AP, PP, and MA are automatically deducted based on what action a user takes, the damage dealt to an opponent, etc.
  • Opponents in battle can use spells, one-handed weapons, two-handed weapons, shields, potions, or their fists.
  • A battle is over when a combatant dies, retreats, or there is a draw. Battles can also be ended via the admin control panel.
  • A wager can be set on a battle. Whoever wins the battle recieves the amount of money as specified in the wager. Outside bets are not supported yet.
  • Battles can be either public or private, as determined by the admin control panel. If private, battles require a password and battles can not be browsed. If public, then any user can view any battle, but only the original combatants can fight.
  • The results of a battle can be posted into a designated "Battle" forum, as specified in the admin control panel.
  • Inactive battles can be pruned.

Getting started with the battle hack:
  • In order to get items to disply in the item shop, you must select which items go with which RPG Type in the "Edit Item Type" Menu of the admin cp.
  • In order to assign which weapon categories do what kind of damage in battle, you must go to the "Edit Category" link located in the "Edit Items" menu of the admin cp. Select a Battle type for the category and save changes.
  • In order to do damage to your opponent when in battle, you must assign the amount of damage each weapon does in the "Edit Items" menu of the admin cp. The default damage is set to 0. The same principle goes for armor, potions, spells, shields, etc.
Please refer to the screenshots or "readme.txt" for more information.


Why is this a BETA hack?

I have tested the installation of this hack on vBulletin versions 2.2.7, 2.2.8, 2.2.9, and 2.3.0. However, because of the scale of this hack, there is plenty of room for errors. Therefore I am making the following disclaimer while this hack is in the BETA stage:


WARNINGS:
  • Do not install this hack on a production board. Please keep this hack, while in the BETA stage, to a test board. The reason for not installing this on a production board is that I cannot provide upgrade instructions for going from one version of the beta hack to the next version of the beta hack. Also, this hack does not have an un-install script yet. So please remember, if you decide to install this on a production board, you are doing so at your own risk.
  • Do not apply this hack if you already have ANY of the included hacks installed. Please refer to the list at the top to see if you have any of the conflicting hacks installed. Since I am asking that you install this on a test board right now, this should not be a problem since you can re-install a fresh copy of vBulletin in under 5 minutes, as a test board of course.
  • There is currently no upgrade script for installing this over any of the included hacks. I will make one when this beta is completed.
  • If you choose to install the postbit features, then an additional query will be added to showthread.php. This query is a SELECT COUNT(*) query and adds around .001 seconds to the page generation. If you don't like the idea of adding an additional query to showthread.php, then you have the option of not installing that part of the hack. See the install file for more information.


Miscellaneous:

The beta of this hack is free. The full/final release will also be free.

All installation instructions and credits are included in the attachment. If you find a bug or have problems, feel free to post them here and I will try to fix them. Please read the included readme file if you have questions. If you can't find the answer, then post your question here and I will answer it.

All hacks included in this hack have been re-released with permission of their original creators.

Screenshots are in the second post of this thread.


Installation:

Installation instructions are included in the .zip file.


ACKK! I NEED HELP!!!

If you are having trouble and need some help, please refer to the help documentation included in the .zip file. It is located in the "extra" directory.

If you need help and you have already installed the hack, make sure you check the RPG Manual link in the admin cp. Also, make sure you read the FAQ included with the manual.

MY THREADS STOPPED DISPLAYING CORRECTLY!!!
See if you are experiencing one of the following symptoms:
  • All of my users are being labeled as "Guest" in the postbit template.
  • No posts are showing up.
  • None of the RPG variables will display in the postbit. The element/gender/class images are broken.
  • I get database errors when I go to showthread.php

If you are experiencing one or more of the above problems, then your showthread.php file was not edited correctly by the installer. This problem usually occurs on boards with other hacks installed that modify the queries in showthread.php. Please go to http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...postcount=2261 and follow the instructions there.


Add-ons:
The following add-ons are not included in the default installation. You must apply these add-ons after you have installed the hack successfully.

I already have a group of shields configured. Would installing this have some kind of negative effect on them, or will it still work okay? If not, I suppose I can take the time to rebuild them. Btw, thanks for yet another add-on.

actually, the previous shield system didnt do ANYTHING. bitsys abandoned getting shields to do something awhile back, and i told him then that i would get around to making them work :-p and here it it ^_^ (so applying the addon will actually start working something that didnt work before)

ps: ive got plenty more addons in store ^_^ and even some which have already been installed on my boards :-D (yes i have NOTHING to do during this summer, lol)

*cough* summons might be soon, but i have to mess with beyond compare for awhile and walk people through database changes >.< its more complicated than you think, lol

see this post

yah i installed Auto-Update stats add-on




Can you verify that they are actually losing HP. Sometimes your maxhp goes up and it makes it look liek you are losing HP, when actually all that is happening is your HP is staying the same and your machp is going up. I am pretty sure this is related to the update stats code.
I think I know what it is. One more thing though, does this happen to everyone every single time, or only some people and not every single time?

Say, did you ever get your donation problem worked out, the one you posted about here:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...71&#post408171 bug with itemshop.php#post408171

I had t he same problem, and when I did the fix Bitsy posted to do, the MY SQL error doesn't happen, rather a 404 cannot find page error happens now. I guess its a better error as I won't get all the emails about the SQL error, but its still a 404 error. I changed the string to "$userid" as Bitsy posted.

Any suggestions Bitsy or Pixel?
What page is it trying to go to?

Hi Bitsys,
The upgrade.txt file only shows how to upgrade from v.66 to v.67. I would love to upgrade from v.61 to the latest one. Is there a way to do that ?

Thanks

If there is also a way to remove v. 61 and reinstall the latest version, I would welcome that too.

How large is your UPGRADE.txt file? Mine is 100KB+. Did you scroll down and see the other upgrade instructions?

Alright bitsy, the donation thing has been fixed.

My other problem is with user records. We have so many people on the boards since the RPG opened up that our database goes down for about 5 minutes at various times during the day. Now if the timing is just right, and a user is finishing the battle just as the databse is going down, their record can get messed up. For example, one guy had listed games played: 1 but then 8 wins.... it appears to happen only when the databse has been down, but I dunno if it can be fixed. Also, when I have to prune battles, the user's record does not update, because as soon as a user enters a battle, it adds one to their "battles fought" category. If I have to prune it before it is finished, the "battles fought" stays the same, making their records off.

Does anybody know how the anger system works?Whenever they get angry on my site, they pull off way too much damage. Is there any way that I could lower the attack increase some?

Lock RPG Options at a Specified Level - New Addon!!

Well, a guy from my boards named Kirby King and I worked out a new addon. This addon allows you to lock all users' RPG options in their USER CP when they reach a certain level. The following code locks the stats at level 5, but you can change this number to whatever you want. I would recommend giving the users at least a couple levels' time where they can test different characters. This addon stops a lot of the cheap strategies some users have, such as a user switching his element to be strong against the opponent just before he challenges.

********************************************************
// Lock RPG Options at a Specified Level
// Edits: member.php and an optional "modifyprofile" template edit
// By Moreliator
********************************************************

in member.php find

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.

next (near the end of the rpg code section in member.php) find
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.

Now, if you want to edit your template to let users know why their RPG options are locked, continue to follow the instructions for the modifyprofile template edit. If you have edited your modifyprofile template before, it may look different than what you find below. Finally, ff you do not wish to edit your template, you are done

in the MODIFYPROFILE template, find

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

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

Enjoy! I'm going on vacation tomorrow, and won't be back until July 1. Don't do too much while I'm gone :P

up their own rp character like normal but then click an option to just not accept battle challenges?
hehehe, i found something to do ^_^ yay! and, um, here it is...doesnt sound TOO bad, something the newbies could use so that the more seasoned members dont just immediately kill them (and the newbies are too stupid to reject a battle >.<) so this should shut them up ^_^ hehe :-p now to find something new to do.................


update: i think IM gunna set MYSELF to it, lol, i have no desire to battle....:-p also, you can set the 'default' to 1(on) 0 (off) based on what you would like the most. i set it to on default...

@ Darkwaltz4: That attachment is the add-on for the option to not accept challenges? If so... excellent! Also, I noticed you updated your signature. The Monster Arena part caught my eye pretty quickly. How much do you think it will cost? PM me if you wish to. Later.
