Please See the first post for a F.A.Q.
I will endevour to link to useful posts within this thread there as I spot them. You should check there before posting issues etc.

This is a port of vBookie for vBulletin 3.5 by Andreas which was a port of vBookie - vBulletin Betting Hack by tjdrico. Permission was given by tjdrico to port this.

vBookie is a 'bookmakers' or betting extension to vBulletin. It enables authorised members to post Events and Outcomes that forum members can bet on. Each Outcome has its own set of odds, and odds can be modified through the life of an Event (bets that are placed are stored with the prevailing odds, so even if the odds change, your users are paid at the correct rate).

Once the results are known, Events can be settled and forums members awarded their winnings.

vBookie uses its own vCash by default, but this has no more use than as 'bragging rights'.

Although vBookie does not have any built-in facility to integrate with any other store hacks, it's a very simple job to hack vBookie itself to integrate it with any store/points system you care to use.

Install Instructions
1. Unzip product file
2. Upload files from 'Upload' folder to your forum
3. Install product XML
4. Edit "newthread" template as per readme.txt ionstructions
5. Set usergroup permissions
6. Set vBookie settings
7. Enjoy.
8. Check out Dismounted's Activity Stream addon
9. Click Mark As Installed and Rate

Upgrade instructions
same as above, but undo edits made in point 4 if upgrading from pre 4.0.7! (see readme.txt for more info)

Version Control
4.0.0 (19 Jan '10 ) - Initial Release
4.0.1 (21 Jan '10 ) - Removed some junk from templates, added enable private bets option
4.0.2 (24 Jan '10 ) - fixed options for hiding vcash, added some more stuff to teh settings screen, added some vCash utilities (reset balances, give to everyone, set default balance) and fixed some template bugs.
4.0.3 (25 Jan '10) - fixed bugs I introduced in 4.0.2 see post #109
4.0.4 (25 Jan '10) - fixed time zone not being saved, can delete events, + plus a couple other things.
4.0.5 (Australia Day '10) - no longer uses bitfields for permissions, fixed vCash display, fixed stats page error
4.0.6 (27 Jan '10) - fixed TABLE PREFIX issue in vBookie stats page
4.0.7 (23 Mar '10) - fixed redirect bug when editing events, fixed display of cash holdings in events, added plugin to make template mods (no template mods needed now) and updated code to 4.0.2 standards, added hooks for vbcredits integration.
NOTE 0- if upgrading from pre 4.0.7, you will need to eitehr revert your "newthread" temp[late, or manually undo template edits as there is now a plugin which does this for you. Check teh readme.txt in the archive for more info.
4.0.8 (31 May '10) - hopefully fixed bug with updating number of outcomes when editing events. To upgrade from previous version (4.0.7) just overwrite vbookie.php

Good stuff . Although you're probably being generous with your odds, but we're not talking real cash here anyway.

When I put books up, I often check with real online bookies for a guide to what odds to use

The way odds work - think of 1 to 1 as meaning in order win 1, you must risk 1. 2 to 1 measn in oder to win 2, you must risk 2.

The bet you had at 7 to 10 meant in order to win 7, you must risk 10, that is why it paid 0.7 on 1.

For double, you would use odds of 2 to 1 - say for the toss of a coin.

Is this clear?
Yes my friend and thank you very much, this mod is great and is bringing lots of fun to my board.

Thanks you,

I understood what you said the first time but didn't think that was right. So I went to a bunch of different bookie sites...and man am I wrong! If you bet $100 on 3-1 odds and you win you get back $400 ($300 in winnings plus your original stake of $100). I've been betting for YEARS and have never gotten this right!

So thanks for the clarification, for putting up with my utter wrongness and for a great mod!

Where did you upload vbookie.php to? If you uploaded teh zip to your home, chances are teh files are in your home directory and not your web directory.

Try unzipping to a temp local directory, and then upload to the root of your web space (httpdocs / public_html or some such thing) - same place you uploaded your vBulletin files to

Still no good Re-uploaded all files to /public_html

The folders are showing and the plugins are all active in the vb admin panel but the link is dead. I've gone to general options and vbookie is active there too. Only thing I can't find is user permissions to edit.

Completely stuck now. I must be missing some simple step

Hi Bruneiguru. You are not meant to upload teh "upload" folder itself, you should upload the contents of it to /public_html (http://bruneiguru.com/upload/vbookie.php exists on your server, but it should be http://bruneiguru.com/upload/vbookie.php)

Hi dartho, thanks very much for your help today. Been a great help. I think its a step beyond me for the time being. I'm with urljet so I'm just firing a support ticket off to them to see if they can rejig the files. I think you're spot-on though, I did just wholesale upload the complete file.

Thanks again for your help, Its much appreciated. Will let you know the outcome

Fixed, I downloaded 4.0.6 instead of 4.0.9

Now few questions.

1) I know that by default each member will have 500 of vcash. So it is up to them how they use the 500. Is that the only way they can play?

I mean lets say I have a forum with 30,000 members and I open a vbookie event.

Now lets say 10 of those members use their max vcash which is 500.

And next day they want to place another new bet, but they will be on 0?

How do I tackle this. If they are on 0 and I manually give them vcash from settings, will it not be unfair for the other members?.
