For vb 4.x:

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, the follow up / expansion of the Casino plugin for vBulletin.

- Seperated framework, Flash caches this once, and only once. Resulting in a smaller file size everytime after the first. It is cached across sites as well, so there is a good chance most people already have it
- Roulette history was showing '37' when it landed on '0'
- Chess - Optional grid labels / moves in chat box

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.


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

Still can't get the gameroom to load...I just moved to a new dedicated server and reinstalled the latest version too:


Found out what my problem was....I was uploading all the files in ASCII mode....when I switched my FTP program to auto it all worked. It works slow....but it works nonetheless.

Yes agreed I decided to do everything through VBs user groups since the control is very in depth.

great great great mod, members really love it!

I have seen a couple of poker games end with confusing results.

one game i was in, player2 had 2 pair (queens and 3's) and player4 had 2 pair (jacks and 4's). the queen high should have won the hand but the game called it a tie and split the pot. is this correct?

and another game the person "with the most money" was able to bankrupt every other player by just raising every turn. isn't there supposed to be some method to allow a player to call and end the hand so that the person with the most money does not have the ability to automatically win regardless of what he has in his hand?

Great Add-On!

The only problem I'm having is that when I try to submit an event for people to bet on, it won't submit it. I can fill out all the info and when I click submit it won't do anything.

Any help is appreciated!

Great add on. I have the pro version. Works great.

I wish there was a move log for the chess game. If you aren't paying close attention, you won't see what happened

Just a few small things.

Can we have a button to clear the transfer log?

When clearing stats is it suppose to leave chess and reversi ranks.
