A Support Project using the vBulletin Project Tool has been created to support this mod. Please make use of it if you can. Timely support will still be given in this thread, however, use of the project tool is appreciated because:
  1. I paid for it
  2. It makes searching for problems already asked by other users, and possibly solved, much easier than this long thread.
  3. It helps organize and manage issues for me, which will become even more useful as I release more mods.

Description:
Ever want to throw something at someone when you read a post? Now you can! Eggs, kisses, bullets, and more.

Video Demonstration Link

Special Notes:
  • Due to some complicated issues involving the coding for animated gifs, largely black eggs (like the bullethole) do not display properly. All that is required, if you make or find your own eggs, is that large black areas be converted to a dark grey or dark blue. I've already done this with the newest bullethole.gif, and as you can see it's not a big issue but I wanted to make everyone aware of it.
  • If you wish to uninstall please upgrade to the lastest version first, as older versions may not uninstall cleanly.

Upcoming 2.5 new features
  • Automatic (optional) integration with [tk] Post Notes (post note of "Username: Threw a <thing> at you." or "Username: Gave you a <thing>" etc.
  • Long promised post stats (how many times a post has been egged, etc.)

Features:
  • Fully Phrased.
  • Fully AJAX.
  • Can be configured to work with any credits system, or not use credits (default).
  • Comes configured for vbCredits (just turn on 'Enable Credits' in the admincp options).
  • Integrated with vB Optimise.
  • Manage your own egg images (enable/disable/delete/add).
  • Optionally have eggings effect user reputation.
  • Optional 'Who Egged Me' display in UserCP.
  • 'Eggs' can be cleaned away.
  • Entire avatars can be wiped clean.
  • Usergroup support for viewing, using, cleaning own and cleaning others.
  • Very configurable.
  • Handles animated avatars (animation stops when egged, starts again when cleaned).
  • Fully supports both GD and ImageMagick. Animated avatars do not stop in ImageMagick.
  • Optional Statistics in What's Going On.

Install:
Download the [tk] EggAvatar_2.3.4.zip file.
Unzip and upload all files in the upload directory to your forum root.
Import the product file in your admincp.
Make sure to set usergroup permissions - all are turned off by default.

Install vbAdvanced Module:
Import and configure the eggblock.xml module via vbAdvanced in your admincp.

Upgrade:
Download the [tk] EggAvatar_2.3.4.zip file.
Unzip and upload all files in the upload directory to your forum root.
Import the product file in your admincp - make sure Allow Overwrite is set to 'yes'.

Version History:
1.0 Original Version
1.1 Support for animated avatars
1.1.1 Fixed a couple minor bugs
1.2.0 Fixed a couple bugs and added file system support for avatar storage.
1.2.1 Fixed bug where function not compiled into standard php 4 was being called.
1.2.2 Fixed bug that cause out of place cost info on popup. Fixed so images no longer lose color when thrown.
1.2.3 Fixed some phrasing. Fixed (?) the bug causes database errors for some users.

2.0.1 Fixed bug with editing existing eggs in admincp.
2.0.2 Fixed bug with EI scrolling menu.
2.0.3 Added some missing phrases.
2.0.4 Fixed IE display problem. Put code in admincp image upload to only allow gifs and to resize if needed (max 50x50).
2.1.0 Full support for animated avatars. Eggs uploaded to the eggs directory but not in the database now show in the Egg Image Manager and can be added. Added Who's Online support. Fixed possible bug with missing dateline from url.
2.1.1 Fixed problem where PHP 5 function was being called.
2.2.0 Fixed problem with cleaned avatars missing dateline (really this time). Dropped back to partial animated gif support (animation stops when egged, starts when cleaned). Added checks and error messages to help with invalid path settings. Fixed bug that caused images not to display in popup. Fixed popup to display properly in all browsers no matter how many eggs are added.
2.2.1 Added additional error checking to the image manager. Fixed the upload button in the image manager.

2.3.2 Fixed bug if paths to avatars has a leading '/'.
2.3.3 Another attempt at fixing the pop 'eggs out of the box' issue. Probably my last for a while. Good luck, cross fingers.

The eggs are applied to avatars on the fly ever time it is displayed. The mod never stores any avatar anywhere. So if new avatars aren't updating it must be an issue somewhere else.

My path is chmod'd 777 at images/misc/eggs/

I've also tried /images/misc/eggs/ and have the same issue. I've checked it all via SSH and FTP and the path and permissions are perfect.

I assure you I'm no beginner, I have no idea what on earth could be causing this on my end? Does this require an unusual assumption at all of a particular PHP setting at the server level? I've never run into this issue before.
It uses virtually the same code as any other upload done by vBulletin. I used the code from the ranks file for my template on how to do it.

If you'd like me to take a look PM some login info.

No, I think it's to do with this mod, acegames. It's happening on my vBulletin too. And it's also distorting avatar images as well.

It used to distort png avatars, but that should be fixed. As for showing old avatars, I'm not doubting you I just don't understand how that could happen. The mod doesn't save avatars, it alters them on the fly.

I'd like to take a look if either of you is willing to give me access.

I noticed that when viewing the Who Egged Me page, that the .php does not contain the navbits information so that your current location is included in the breadcrumb. It's just blank for the page title and blank in the navbar. It would be cool to include those in the next update.

I noticed something interesting as far as my file upload bug... Since every other upload feature on my vB as well as add-ons works, I decided to compare the screenshots and with your video.

I compared my admincp file uploading area with your very first screenshot in your first post, and they are different.

Here's a picture of mine...

See the difference?

Working great. It would be great if we could
*have vbexperience integrated.
*choose where to throw the egg.
*choose the cost for each group (say to throw egg on an admin it would cost you more)

Thanks ...

Yes. Increase the fadetime in the admincp settings.

A thought, for those having trouble with avatars not updating - did you rebuild your thumbnails in admincp->maintenance->maintenance->update counters->Rebuild Custom Avatar Thumbnails and/or Rebuild Avatar Thumbnails?
