vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (7 votes - 3.86 average) Installs: 278
Released: 06 Dec 2002 Last Update: Never Downloads: 121
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.

Still had the same problem with the category order, I set it to yes. Will the bank be compatible with lesane's store hack anytime soon or ever?

What are the order values for each category?

This hack is compatible with lesane's store hack. All you need to do is go into the Itemshop Options menu and select "yes" for "I have Lesane's Store Hack installed and I want to use Lesane's Store's points system rather than the RPG Integration Hack's point system."

Note that when using Lesane's Store points the bank will not work.

I am thinking about re-writing the heal/battle code to only deal with cash and leave the bank account alone.

That would be cool.

I also just got::

Ahh i wish i could go to the previous version, it didnt have so many bugs.

I would like to appolgoize in advance if this has already been answered I read up to page 15 and didnt see it even asked x.x

It is a simple problem, why when I try to put in a RPG Name for my character in the User CP it doesn't stick, but if I change it in the Admin CP it will stay, what needs to be changed?

Did I forget to add something, perhaps did something wrong. Besides this everything seems to be working wonderfully and I really do like this hack ^.^


EDIT: I just realized this also is affecting some of the other profile fields, Location, Biograhpy, Intrests and Occupation.

Can anyone please tell me how to fix this I really enjoy this hack.

Bitsys, I'd just like to let you know that my forums have now hit over 2,000 battles. I still do not have any major glitches. We had a few monetary problems in the past, but with the rewritten money part for wagering and stuff that you released in the past week I have had no problem since.

I just wanted to let you know this, because my users are using this hack extensively and it is holding up very nicely. I have multiple addons made for this RPG, and still no problems.

Rewriting the script to take money from pocket and not bank would, however, be beneficial IMO.

The only problem we have now is battle records. Is there anyway you could write a script that goes through and corrects battle records? Some of our members have like 90 battles played, but only 5 wins and 2 losses... it works the other way too, sometimes a member will have 30 games played but like 90 wins. I've narrowed it down to two things:
1) Battle Records mess up when our Database goes down in the middle of a battle ending report

2) There have been instances where a user repeatedly presses the "Acknowledge Results" button, causing record errors.


Its not really a glitch though, just a small problem :P

Good Work, and thanks. Looking forward to that final version

The bad part about that is that they can do something like create a post, deposit the money, and delete the post. They'd be able to keep the money with no problem. I have it set up like that (was forced to because I use the store hack), and the members found out how it worked.

hmm, good point kaotic. Well then I would just leave it alone, because the only downside of it is that it stops the interest process... but if they really wanted to save they will just have to not do any transactions.

ahh yep ^_^ i believe the latest battle id is 3012 on my forums, and ive gotten all the glicthes out of my version. in fact i dont think ill be updating any more unless there is something being added on which i havent already :-p although there was just a nagging problem with interest not working on time on my forums, but i rewrote it myself. did that ever happen to anyone? i honestly never checked or bothered to report it cause i fixed it :-p

also, if your users cant help but hit the submit button a zillion times....i suggest you put up a javascript submit-disabler script. we currently use one on a different hack, and that solves all the problems of hitting submit too much :-p

Hello~! ^_^! I have a little problem.. I can't seem to Donate any points to my members nor can any of my members donate to others. Donating, i meant through the postbit ( http://puccafan.com/lounge/showthrea...&threadid=1449 ) I think the code is right b/c I copy and pasted it from the Manual. I'm not sure what's going on? The Battle is OFF for now and I'm not using Leasane's Store. I'm using VB 2.3.0.

Help would be much appreciated, thank you for your time!

Ok, I just finished re-writing the money code in battleupdate.php. While I was at it, I re-formatted the code in battleupdate.php as well.

How are they getting robbed? the money is taken away but they aren't getting the item?

Unfortunately, the battle structure doe not easily permit persistent challengers like you are thinking of. When a battle is created, neither user can be in battle nor can the battle start until the opponent accepts the battle. A new field in the user table and a new usercp option would have to be added to allow what you are thinking of.

In the admin cp, go to Modify Profile Fields. Make sure everything looks fine there (no duplicates, etc...). After that, send me your member.php so that I can make sure the file edits were correctly done by the installer.

Well, the battle script is supposed to automatically detect hitting the submit button too many times - it is called an illegal move in battleupdate.php. However, you can try to do what darkwaltz said and use javascript to disable the submit button after it is pressed. I can't do much about the databse going down unless it is a problem with the RPG Hack that is causing itt to go down.

There isn't a really good way of fixing the battle records since the battle posts and battles themselves are deleted after the battle is over. THe onyl thing I can tell you to do is edit each user's battle record manually in the RPG-> Edit Users Menu of the admin cp.

Thanks for letting me know the new money code is working. It will definately be going in the next version.

That would be a problem no matter where the money goes (bank or pocket). Since there is no transaction record for what money is obtained through which posts, there isn't a reasonable solution to the deleting posts problem.

So far things have been going good on my forums battle mod.

Only a few minor things I wanted to report to you.

Some of my members complain about not getting interest from the bank. Some do and some say they don't and some others say they are getting too much interest (like 21%). Also I'm not sure if this is correct or not but they say that any bank activity will reset the 24 hour interest waiting period.
If they only go to the itemshop once a week, then they will get the normal interest (10%) compounded over a 7 day period, which can make it look like it is 21%.

Yes, any bank activity within the 24 hours resets the 24 hour mark.


Yesterday at 09:30 PM Me! said this in Post #2026
Also to save space and make it look nicer I removed the code in battle template so that it doesn't show the items a user has. Does this interfer with anything, because now for some reason I can't use shield no matter how many times I buy and resell and then re buy it >.< (also some people complain about not being able to use magic spells) I even updated my rpg info and checked the item category and still no luck.
If you just changed a template, then there shouldn't be any problem.

Shields don't work (unless you have Darkwaltz's addon installed) anyhow.

For spells, if the user doesn't have any MA, then they can't use the spell. Are the user's sure they had enough MA to use the spell?

Yesterday at 09:30 PM Me! said this in Post #2026
Also the change where you can make only one item worked perfectly but is there any way to list them all seperatly? I used this code that you provided:


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

That worked great but no other items show, I was wondering if there is a way to show them all seperate. I really don't want the pet to show up on the battle screen XD

Well, if you know the category ID, then you can keep adding "AND $nr == XX" to the if statement and it will only include items that are in that category. If you want to exclude a category, just put "AND $nr != XX".

I installed the VB Arcade not long ago and it seems to be bugging things out on my forum I wonder if the VB Arcade and the battle mod are compatible with each other? I really should uninstall the arcade but my members will miss it >.> I wonder if anyone else here has any problems with the battle mod and arcade mod both installed?

Sorry for such a long post, I've been busy this week and meanwhile my members have come up with a long list of things they want me to do XD
Hmm, I have no idea if this hack works with vb Arcade. I have never installed it.

Yes, but I have been working on some vb3 hacks over the past month so development on this has slowed to fixing bugs.

Hey all.
I have found another error when installing the hack on my new forum.
I had an extra profile feild named Favourite Game.
When I installed the hack and set up the postbit where the cash is meant to come up the favourite game appeared instead.
How can I set it up so the money appears?

Thanks so much Bitsys! Keep up the good work!

Just installed on a fresh clean 2.3.0 and it went smooth.

We'll see how hard is to translate to spanish.

I might send you the files if you're interested in a multilingual version but I guess u're busy enough


Ah! btw! Installing any of the add-ons will make future updates of the RPG hack harder to apply? Impossible? Possible?


Thanks!
