For vb 4.x: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=239817

This is a late-Beta, it has been tested fairly extensively and all the big kinks should be worked out. That said, once this hits more sites a couple other bugs are bound to work themself out. It works going back at least as far as the 3.6 branch of vBulletin, not sure about 3.5.

This is the free version of The Gameroom by http://vbgaming.org, the follow up / expansion of the Casino plugin for vBulletin. It improves the multiplayer gaming aspects by bringing in more games, and allowing users more options when starting and joining games.

- Roulette history was showing '37' when it landed on '0'
- Chess - Optional grid labels / moves in chat box

Updating:
1) Upload the framework files, they should go into the main forum folder with the .swf files folder. You will only need to do this once, which is why they are in a seperate file.
2) Upload the files in the main package, make sure everything overwrites old copies.


*********************************
** Common Problems **
*********************************

Non-english letters are not working properly
This is a problem with flash player and has been in there bug tracker for a long time. The workaround is to edit the "gameroom" template, remove the line that ways "wmode='transparent'", the downside it your popup menus will come up behind the flash box, rather then in front of it.
Images are working in IE, but not in Firefox
You likely have some form of image hot linking turned on, it is causing the requests for the images to be blocked.
Locked self out of admin panel
In the tools folder there is a file called 'makemeadmin.php', upload this and go to that page. It will make you admin, don't leave it on your server when you are done.
Updated and it is acting funny
Make sure all of your files are up to date. When you update ensure that all files are overwritten. Having mix matched files will cause funny behaviour. You may also have to clear your cache and reload the page after uploading a new gameroom.swf file.

*********************************
** Uninstall **
*********************************

If you want to uninstall the following procedure will get you through it without tossing any DB errors:

1) Dissable the product, this shuts down all the plugins. If the files are removed and plugins are still active you may see errors on your site.

2) Undo the template changes, changes where made to the navbar template and the postbit / postbit legacy template.

3) Delete all files. If the files are still present and you remove the database entries by uninstalling the product anyone that attempts to access one of them will cause a error. The Flash Banner could cause many as it could still be making calls after the template changes are undone.

gameroom.php
gameroom.swf
gameroomBanner.swf
gameroom/*
includes/cron/gameroom_nightly.php


4) Uninstall the product file, which removes all database entries, that means the following are removed:

tables with 'gameroom_' as a prefix
gameroom_cash field within the user table

In your zip file you have a mis-labeled file: class_main.php~

Do we need to remove the ~ from the end of the filename before we upload?

You also have a duplicate txt file labeled the same weird way. What are these files for?

SUGGESTIONS:
  1. The background color although it does change needs its own setting because most of the color schemes the backgroud doesn't come close to matching. So that background color needs its own selection box please.
  2. We need to have wins / lost games and cash amount in a block on the members profile page please.
  3. When you place a game of say Chess and you win the score is not recorded anywhere? Is that right?
  4. The HTML banner doesn't show even when you add a default saying to the banner default saying?

Your flash file downloads about 3kb shy of what it should be, maybe try a different ftp program? Send it via ssh? Something is definitely getting lost going in or coming out of your server.

The boarder doesn't change in mine no matter what I do.

Also, I need the banner game link and WOL links to game to open in a new window so members can be in game and still browse the site.

Can you tell me how to make these changes?

Also, we need the Game Room: Cash to also be included in vbBlogs post bit legacy. I will sort those instructions out and post them here for others who you vbBlog.

THANKS!

I think the border is the only thing you don't have with what I sent you. to make your links open in new windows: html banner you can edit the template, flash one isn't as easy
WOL is in the plugin "Gameroom: WOL Display"

I uploaded this new package you attached here to get the border. It still needs its own setting because like I stated most of the colors you pick for the theme the border doesn't match at all.

I will edit the links to make the target="blank" I am using the html banner. The flash one just doesn't match my site at all.

Thanks!

Currency name from $ to Monies, set 0 to all variables which you get creditted for (Dont want it to overwrite vBcredits settings)
Refreshed the page and got:

Not gonna, lie, right now that language is hard coded.

Although if you are editing language you should probably do it through the "Edit Language" piece, which will save it and not cause you problems when the language file changes (as it will to bring the language in the settings tab into it)

If I edit it under "Edit Language" will it change the text/phrase?

What, about a branding free version?

Basically what happens is the language.php file is the defaults.

The "Edit Language" tab allows you to overwrite those defaults with whatever you like.

That way if I add to the language.php and you upload it file the defaults will be in place, and any that you have overwritten will still be overwritten.

Probably, Need to work out how I want to handle that though.
