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

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?.
You have an option of "Give to the poor" which means that whenever a new event is created anyone with 0 will get 'X' amount given to them.

Or you could install a hack like 'ucash' where members can earn points per post etc... To 'spend' in the vbookie.

Another option is to reset everyone each month or something.

For my uses, I give everyone $1000 to start with each month (after recording the top 10 for the previous month - hint Dartho to code in a monthly top earners feature ).

I also set a max bet limit of $500 so people can't blow it all in one go (another hint to Dartho so I don't have to keep hacking this in ) - search the old vbookie thread for "max limit" and you'll find the necessary hack to do this.

I am using vbcredits as currency for this. When I place bets the credits arent changed for me (admin) but it seems to be working for everyone else. Any thoughts dartho? Cool mod btw

Also this is probably a dumb question but this:

5. Set usergroup permissions
I dont see any usergroup permission settings other than who can post events in the vbookie settings page. Are there more permissions?

Yep - in settings is where you can set who can create events, edit events and bet on events

mmm... No... Are you using the vbcredits integration in vbookie, or vbookies integration in vbcredits?

Actually - just had a thought. Does the same happen if you bet on an event created by someone else, or only on your own events. Also - when you settle an event that you created - do you get the money?

I know I changed vBookie for myself so that funds went into, and came out of the balance of teh person creating the event. Perhaps I inadvertently released this version!

I create all of the events so that is answer to question 1.

I havent settled any events yet, i will create a dummy event and settle it and see what happens

(btw, im not sure what you mean in post #488)

OK I am almost positive my credits werent being subtracted earlier, I wouldnt have made the thread. But, everything seems to be working now, I guess I will have to report back if it happens to me again. Thanks for the prompt reply dartho

Suggestion for future version:

When viewing a gthread that you have already placed a bet, maybe have somewhere you can see what you have bet on (and how much)? Maybe how like in a vb poll it italicizes the option you voted for?

again, this mod is fantastic
