First install :x

This looks cool to me. Tag for future.

Installed the Lite Version but not working correctly.

I added all files but there is no Triple Triad in AdminCP. There are a couple of settings in AdminCP -> Options but its only to turn TT on and also to set meny usertable. I can't access tripletriad.php because it says my usergroup is not authorized but I can't find an area to authorize it. Also, in the provided instructions, it states to go to AdminCP -> Triple Triad and import tripletriad-final_fantasy_viii.xml but no such file is provided.

Looks promising though.

Edit: Found the final fantasy pack in the files. Still don't see the AdminCP options though.

Haywire - Try refreshing your admin cp or visiting: admincp/index.php?do=buildbitfields, perhaps the bitfields/XML weren't rebuilt.

As for the usergroup perms, edit your usergroup and set access to "yes" (which the install instructions provided state to do).

In regards to "tripletriad-final_fantasy_viii.xml", it's there: /dbtech/tripletriad/import/tripletriad-final_fantasy_viii.xml, check you've uploaded all files correctly.

Deceptor,

Followed your instructions and still no luck. I also went into usergroup permissions and nothing is in there about Triple Triad.

Any other ideas?

Deceptor 06 Jun 2010 17:58

Interesting, seems silly but the product shows in if you go to Manage Products, right? If the product isn't installed no navigation/perms wouldn't show.

Haywire0311 06 Jun 2010 18:07

Yeah, it's there but still nothing in the adminCP

Deceptor 06 Jun 2010 18:10

Hmm, can you verify the following files are on your site:
./includes/xml/cpnav_dbttripletriad.xml
./includes/xml/bitfield_dbttripletriad.xml

If you want me to take a look personally, feel free to PM me a temp administrative login to your forum (with access to products/plugins) :)

Haywire, I took a look and at first glance everything seems fine. However vBulletin is failing to finish importing the product, I tried a reinstallation and this is what I got:

Attachment 118140

The page doesn't complete the installation, the mass number of styles you have is causing PHP to timeout. There are a few steps you can do to try resolve this:

1) Increase PHP Memory Limit
2) Increase PHP Max Execution Time
3) Move styles to be children of 1 parent, instead of them all being parents
4) Remove unused styles

Really vBulletin should try force the import to work without time/memory limits in PHP, but that's there issue, for now the suggestions mentioned are your best options :)

Feel free to delete the admin account.

Haywire0311 06 Jun 2010 19:27

Works now.....thanks for the help.

Deceptor 06 Jun 2010 19:29

No problem, enjoy :)

keweedsmo 06 Jun 2010 23:59

Hey. Installed and I Love the mod. Just 1 question though:

How does a player's deck work? Does it just pick 5 random cards you own when you play a game? If that's how it works then I highly recommend having a way for users to pick their deck, or a pool of cards to play from. If this isn't how it works then please explain how I can select the cards I'll be playing with :)

Also when I play multiplayer and i'm the one who gets invited it says "Commander (CPU)'s Deck ". My name is commander :P
