Ladys and Gentlemen, i give you, The Rap Battle System -=RBS=-


Many people have been requesting this so here it is. Took along time so im hoping it becomes a popular hack :nervous:



Features

Hmmm there are a few. Select the forum which the battle hack works in via the admin cp
Can edit a users win/loss record via the admincp aswell.

When someone wins a battle it automatically adds it to their win count and the opposite if they lose

The thread does not auto close because in my many years of experience people like to post/argue on after a battle is won or lost.

Erm oh and you submit your favourite line from the battle and it will get added to a database, then lines are randomly shown on the forum homepage.

Check the installation.txt for the full list, Also there is loads more features to come. Hopefully some people will release some addons maybe

Screenshot time wohoo

Oh yeah, the install button is your friend

First, thanks for you work. I always appreciate anyone putting their valuable time into hacks.

I am interested in this, but for Image/PhotoShop Battles rather than rap/text.
There are a few things that are holding me back from an install though. Things I think would make this better:

1. Ability for group only to start battles, and hence the first person in the "first vs. second" also be editable and not always who is creating the battle. I was thinking something like having "referees" (basically mod group with battle admin powers) to set up battles and finalize. I realize that forum permissions could handle this with "can post new threads" but I don't think a 3rd person can set up a battle between 2 others.

2. Having a set amount of votes to win, I just don't think that is the best way to handle it and I believe this is the biggest shortcoming. It needs to have the ability to accept and tally votes until a mod/admin/ref closes the poll/battle, then the winner be determined.

3. Some way (maybe a pop-up memberlist) to make sure you are putting someone's correct username or maybe the option to use ID's instead? On a gaming ladder that I own, our webmaster has it so users can login with either name or ID so I am sure it could be done.

What happens if you set up a battle and use a non-existent username? When I tried, it let me with no errors.

Thanks again for the hack and I will follow diligently to see development.

Thank you for letting me know about battling someone with no username etc, will get onto that.

Umm as for the set amount of votes to win. As this is aimed at rap board, 99% of the time this is how battles are set out, a set amount of votes are determined and then the battle commences. The winner beeing the person to get the votes etc.



Erm that first thing you suggested sounded big and confusing to me Nice idea though.

The memberlist thing, yeah i see what you mean. Will have to find something i guess.

Thank you for the comments/suggestions

Some people have rap battle hacks for vB2 for sale, but none were ever released for free like this one

Addon's I suggest (which we're already workin on at my forum):

1) KO Voting... this is pretty simple you just query all votes on one battle, and sort them by vote date... assign each a floating value... then the set amount for a KO (usually 3) would be: if vote 2 == vote 1 and vote 3 == vote 1 (if KO = 4 then it'd be if vote 2 == vote 1 and vote 3 == vote 1 and vote 4 == vote 1... etc)... and then put it into the user's database as a win and KO and lock the poll

another addon... polls always have cheaters (there's ways around IP Addresses to vote more than once), so to keep some cheaters out:

2) Cannot vote on polls (in battle forum) if less than 'x' amount of days registered or has less than 'x' amount of posts... again another easy hack

those are just two of the small hacks we're creating at STR Forums... just some idea's that others might want.

EDIT: also MindTrix what I suggest you do to change the coding is make it that the user creating the battle has to put in their opponent's forum ID number, that way there will be no confussion or mistakes when assigning win/loss values.

Look for:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And Below it add:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

change X to the forum number
And then in your ForumHome template look for:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Now after that, add this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Any problems, let me know.

Maybe I was complicating things.
Basicly, just make it so both Avs.B are open fields so that the person making the post does not have to participate in the battle.

I can already assign a battle forum and just allow my mods/admins to create new posts. But I would like to maintain control and have mods set up the battles between two other users.

So basicly, an quick work around would be.... Is there any way when creating a new battle to have a third user set up the battle between two other users?

its killing everyday poll's for me

when voteing on a everyday poll you get the error screen, but your vote goes on the poll but it closes the poll.

error:

Database error in vBulletin 3.0.3:

Invalid SQL: UPDATE user SET bs_wins = bs_wins + 1 WHERE username = 'Who's David?'
mysql error: You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 's David?'' at line 1

mysql error number: 1064
