As there were limits for uploading, i had to split off some of the images...
take this, and put the resulting images (in the bluecards folder) and put it in images/triad (along with the redcards folder)

Edit: I've uploaded the zipped SCREENSHOTS, including some that are not posted above, in this post...

Hey, thanks for releasing this hack, I was searching for this one.
Will this hack work if I install it on my vB 3.0.7 (soon 3.0.8) forum? Cause I see you don't have to edit many files...

MUDERCOOL 29 Jul 2005 14:50

if it's suitable for 3.0.7 I will install and need some more info about this game, also some screenies would be cool

Darkwaltz4 29 Jul 2005 15:12

i dont see why it shouldnt work for the newest stuff. its very non-invasive for the most part.

screenshots are for people who dont know what triple triad is :)

but ill see about it for tonight

Oblivion Knight 29 Jul 2005 15:16

I've donated $15 towards your license renewal.. :)

Looking forward to seeing future developments of this, I love Triple Triad.

yoyoyoyo 29 Jul 2005 15:21

I get this when going to the stadium entrance:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I think that you need to fix the table prefix problem. I have no table prefix added to my forums, yet it seems to be looking for one.

Also- I only think you have half of the navbar code there.


Once we can get this going, this site: http://www.tripletriad.net/
offers some good alternative decks, too.

Here's the original card back, enjoy.. ;)

Darkwaltz4 29 Jul 2005 15:37

yoyoyoyo: you didnt follow the first instructions...

1) You need a preexisting points hack (if you need something very very simple, tell me and ill post it in this thread)

2) You need to fill out the config file before you try to get anything to work. Those are just dummy values, which you change in the Admincp. Trust me, ALL prefix issues were fixed a long time ago :-p (very annoying too)

Is that my original cardback? Thanks for all of your help!
Oh, and while I'm thinking about it, my cards are 105 x 130 pixels, for anyone wanting to make a new set (or convert an old one).

I've no idea, but it's the original from the actual Final Fantasy VIII version.. ;)


Also, if you can gain permission from http://www.ttadvance.com/ to use some of their additional card packs for this modification, you could be on to something huge - possibly bigger than the Arcade.

Thanks a *simple* points hack would be great. So this means that it could use uttstore points, etc. as the points table? I see it mentioned in the requirements at the top of this page now - maybe you could include a mention of it in the instructions to clear up confusion. I also don't see any mention of a config file anywhere in the install info, or in the ACP or in your release info at the top. I installed the file and template and saw this message:

vBTripleTriad is now installed, click HERE to go to the admin control panel. You must set up your options for the hack for it to be open to the public.
I set up the options, or at least thought I did, but no mention of a config file. I saw the "User Points TABLE Name" set as PF_TABLE in the Technical configuration area of the ACP- is that what you mean?

Darkwaltz4 29 Jul 2005 16:23

Yes, that's what I mean, I'll go fix up bolding things, and I'll have the simple points hack later.

IF you have installed this somewhere where others are normally posting, then you can add a column to the user table, called 'points' INT (10) and default it as a comfortable amount for everyone to start out with (like enough to get a couple packs). This is good to cover registration, and it is part of the simple points hack (the rest of what I'll give you will handle adding points per post). I'll have this later too.

If you do that, then you would put user and points, respectively, into the table and column page.

Did they get permission by Jelsoft to use vB icons to make IPB look like vB?

:D
