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.

Do you have to add events daily? Or is the system automatic?
I mean if I wanted to bet on sports, do I have to add games manually?

Got it sorted out. For those having problems with the navbar link color and background of Vbookie just add the following code in the body of the vbookie template. I added it at the end since it should call it last.

I have a problem. I set the odds for an event at 345/100 for first result, 150/100 for the second and 575/100 for the third. As hte multiplier i want to be 3.45, 1.5, 5.75 for each result. Despite at vbookie.php page at event info it shows the correct values i mention above, at showthread it shows this values plus 1 ex 4.45, 2.45, 6.75. But it pays correctly as 3.45 or 1.5 or 5.75. Does anyone knows what is happening?

In the showthread it is showing the total return as opposed to the multiplier. At 3.45, you get your 3.45 + your initial 1 stake = 4.45

Yes i found it later. I removed the initial stake on the payment and the plus one on your code as i wanted to return only the amount he won.

anyone know hos to give vcash to only certain usergroups? whathappens is when i give it to everoyne then users who dont actually gamble end up with like 20 grand etc.. so over the course of a year it throws off the rankings.

let me know an sql thanks

figured it out
UPDATE user SET vbookie_cash=whatever WHERE usergroupid=whatever;

so..
UPDATE user SET vbookie_cash=0 to set everyone at zero

then the other code to set users at an amount. made a promotion that moves qualified reg users into a new primary group so i could tag them by this.

now, can anyone tell me a way to give everyone in the custom group a welfare check when they go bust?

UFC Fight Night 28 Odds For The Main Card:

Glover Teixeira (-440) vs. Ryan Bader (+350)
Ronaldo Souza (-265) vs. Yushin Okami (+225)
Joseph Benavidez (-525) vs. Jussier da Silva (+415)
Francisco Trinaldo (-320) vs. Piotr Hallmann (+260)
Rafael Natal (-260) vs. Tor Troeng (+220)
Ali Bagautinov (-280) vs. Marcos Vinicius (+240)
Maybe I'm looking in the wrong areas for odds on events, but the above structure is how I always find them displayed these days. Using the above info for creating a vBookie event, how is everyone adding the info when vBookie ask for it as Odds X___ to Odds X___ ?

You would need to know those numbers mean (which I don't) but I just looked at a betting site which had this to say:

If we picture the number 100 sitting in the middle of these two values, it helps to illustrate how MMA betting works. For example, betting a -200 MMA favorite means you would risk $200 in order to win $100 in profit. On his or her opponent, you would risk $100 and win $180 on the underdog. Other forms of MMA odds will be listed here later in 2013. They include over-under rounds (will the fight end in the first, second or third round or go to a decision?) are usually available close to fight night.
So taking your example of:
Glover Teixeira (-440) vs. Ryan Bader (+350)

You would risk $440 in order to win $100 if you bet on Teixeira and you would risk $100 in order to win $350 by if betting on Bader.

To convert this to odds, just reverse the numbers. "100 to 1" means win 100 for every 1 bet, so using that based on the information above would give us:

Odds for Teixeira to win would be 100 to 440 (Win 100 for every 440 bet)
Odds for Baden to win would be 350 to 100 (win 350 for every 100 bet)

Thanks for the response. So based on that, would you then enter the odds as....
Teixeira to win "1 to 4.5"
Bader to win "3.5 to 1"

Also is anything you know of that can simplify setting up say all the weeks scheduled NFL game's?

Yep - although I can't remember if vbookie takes decimals, if not 2 to 9 and 7 to 2 would be the same as "1 to 4.5" and "3.5 to 1". That being said, "100 to 440" is totally valid, and possibly looks more "right" to those that are familiar with odds in the -440 / + 350 format

No easy way to set up the weekly schedules, other than get someone else to do it On my site I have the normal moderators AND I also created a "bookmakers" group with the permissions necessary to do the vbookie stuff.
