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.

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.)

  • 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.

Download the [tk] 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.

Download the [tk] 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'.

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.

I installed the product and it seemed to install fine however, now all memebers avatar show a broken link. This is the same members avatar link Prior to installing
and After installing

Any suggestions ? FYI I do have VBA installed and a custom template. No vboptmise.
Any help is greatly appreciated, this looks to be a fun mod.
That is odd. I would first reupload the file in case it is corrupted.

You don't, by chance, have 'none' set for your Image Processing Library in "vBulletin Options->Image Settings" do you?

Thanks for your responce. I have GD set for image processing. My guess is that it might have something to do with the custom style from vbskins or something related to a postbit template. What do you think about the plugins folder, was I correct in just creating it ? Tried redownloading and reinstalling too.

Yes, creating the plugins folder was correct. There is no plugins folder in vB. It is a convention used by many mods when they want to move plugin code into a file to save memory.

Thanks hambil. That would be great if you could help me figure it out. Many of my members have expressed interest in this mod working.

I'm with you on this one, usually I can figure out thats causing the problem but not in this case. Hambil, if you (have time) and think you can fix it I'd be willing to $ you. Shoot me a PM and let me know. PS I installed the 2.04 version and I was able to see the my avatars but could not tell if the product was install. I assume there would be a link or something in the postbit to bring up the pop-up but I didn't see. My board is pretty moded so I might be past the point of no return on this one.

Installed this mod today, and now all of the avatars are red X's. When I click to egg an avatar, I get a Javascript error. Sounds like a pretty cool mod, but if it's going to cause problems on the board, I'm going to uninstall it.

thank you hambil great mod installed

I hope in the next version it would support forums with right ==> left for the styles cuz i got to do some edit for the align in the mod @[email protected] even though my knowledge about coding near to nothing but i changed the left align to right and it worked fine
awesome mod too much fun and works good with vbcredits,

1-I hope in the next release if u can add option to clean all without paying credit for mods or for the group permission
2- if the good and bad eggs got separated in the list so the user would know if it good or bad
3- if u can add a massive import for egg gif from a directory at the server then the admin can edit info for each one or a master edit for good or bad it would be much easier this way for adding new eggs rather than add one by one ^^ one more thing it would be more awesome if every egg have its own price to pay for it

thank you hambil
