RPG Integration Hack v3.5.1 Patch Level 2

RPG Integration Hack (RPG hack for short) v3.5.1 is the first step into the next generation of the classic hack compiled by Bitsys. For those that are unfamiliar with any of what I mentioned above, heres a quick rundown of what this hack is and does.
The RPG hack adds a whole new level of fun to a forum, by allowing uses to duke it out in a fierce battle. Use items to turn the tide of the battle, or use powerful spells to bring down an opponent. Or you can just rely on the good old sword to cut your enemy down to size!
Create or join a clan to amass an army and conquer the boards.
Patch yourself up after a hard battle.
Feeling lucky? Go bet on the lottery!

No RPG forum should be without. Administrator controls every single aspect of how the hack works, right down to every item and an user's level/stat gains.


Important Notices:
  1. You need an external Cash mod installed for this mod to function properly.
    • uCash/uShop or vBPlaza, either will do
    • The Cash mod need to use the `user` table
    • You need to configure a setting in the RPG Integration Hack - Cash Options after install/upgrade
Known Issues:
  1. Regular postbit doesn't contain RPG info
  2. RPG Manual is still outdated
These are all issues that will be addressed in upcoming versions.



Upgrading Users:
What's new in v3.5?
  • OOP coding for query efficiency
  • Revamped templates
  • New Battle formulas (Thanks to Decado)
  • Works with AJAX Quick Reply/Quick Edit
  • Reoccurring Lotteries
  • Improved Healing Center
  • Inventory feature for the ability to carry multiple items from same item category
  • RPG Info no longer changeable on the fly
  • And last, but not least: NO FILE EDITS!

I'm really looking forward to v4!

I am using 3.7.5, but am considering moving to 3.8.1 after I make sure all my mods will be ok at that version. As for RPG version, should be the latest 3.5.1 version plus patches posted in earlier posts (to my knowledge, those patches were required for it to work on newer versions).

3.8.2 is promissed this Tuesday and Group Subscriptions will be fixed. *crosses fingers*

I am unsure if this will affect your current work?

Here's a small screenshot that should indicate how much effort is being put into just one of the modules for v4:

Click here.

I'll post back with more details (and screenshots) once the module is complete.
Currently it sits at approx. 40%; I've done all GM management except
  • Guild Applications
  • Guild Invites
  • News Management
    • Add
    • Edit
    • View
    • Delete
After that, all these features need to be duplicated in the front-end on a per-guild basis, based on permissions of the character the user has selected.

Heck mang, my version of the RPG killed my forum...you should have seen it. You want to talk about extensive...the amount of work I did on it was pretty nuts. Everything from custom style design, to gazillions of armor and weapons as well as avatar work.

It's a shame that I had to uninstall it...the forum wouldn't work with it installed, and people were getting upset. I hope this new one does well, it was quite fun. Thanks!

You seem to be the kind of person that would enjoy tinkering with the stats formulae as well

I have 6 files left to do in the Game Master CP for the Guilds module before it's time to get started on the front-end.
So things are progressing

Good to hear, Revan...with RPG Inferno dead, this seems to be the only hope for us on the horizon. The last iteration of this one was only removed because 3.8.2 didn't like it at all and I couldn't figure out how to get it to work. So here's hoping this new version is compatible. I really love the guild idea...so keep up the good work!

Since it's still a ways off, by the time it's ready for public consumption vB4 will be out (if not 4.1), so I'm mainly going to be aiming for vB4 compatibility.

It's a load of hassle to support two versions, and by then most of the more popular mods will also have moved to vB4, so there's little reasons not to upgrade


EDIT: After having seen how people reacted to the postbit I originally created for v4, I've decided to revert to a look similar to v3.
So, here's some screenshots of the revised postbit in v4. Thanks to swiftor for still running v3 so I could dig up the HTML code I used easily

Full View:
postbit_full.png

Collapsed View:
postbit_collapsed.png

The magnifying glass icon will take the user to the extended RPG information page, which in this version will be fully integrated with the tabbed profile system found natively in vBulletin, rather than opening a pop-up window.
This decision was made because pop-ups are generally annoying, and because having a tab in the profile allows for much easier extension by modules (Guilds, Items, Battle, etc) than a fixed-size popup would.

Don't worry, it opens a new tab in the browser, so you won't face angry messages from users saying "OMFG I JUST LOST MY HUGE EPIC RP POST JUST BECAUSE I WANTED TO CHECK OUT MY OPPONENT, WTF YOU SUCK"

I didn't make the icon bar in the bottom collapse alongside the main content because that would just cause extra clicks for people who just don't want the in-line display of RPG info - should you disagree with me and want it collapsed, it's a simple template edit to move the image bar into the rest of the fold (pun intended).

And finally, a note about the collapsing:
It's unfortunately not feasible to create a system where collapsing one member's RPG info collapses it globally for all posts made by this member.
Not only does that produce XHTML validation errors when this member posts more than once per page, but the JavaScript code vBulletin uses for collapsing only collapses the first post.
To compensate, I'm going to create a setting that allows users to see the collapsed postbit by default, so that they can expand it as they desire.


Hope you liked this little update, more to come in the future once I finalise the design on the Guilds front-end.

it seems like everything is going great with the new version. I know this is too early to ask and it might also annoy but when can we expect the release of this new version of this great mod?

It is a bit early to tell; I'm rebuilding everything from scratch, which takes its time.

Also, it's not going to be released here, which is why I'm making it in different pieces (modular) - so that people won't need to pay for a complete package that they may only use some parts of.

I'm not posting about it here to generate hype or anything, just because the people who still follow this thread are the ones who would care about the v4 in any form, so yeah.

I just installed the mod. Everything works except for the Admin CP, I cant see the navigation bar and when I go to the URL manualy like "admincp/rpg_index.php" it shows a blank page. But when I go to an url from the mod outside of the Admin CP it works like a charm. Can someone tell me what's wrong?

I'm running VBulletin 3.7.3 and the RPG Integration Hack is the latest version on this site with the 3.6.x patch. I also re-uploaded the files into the site just in case and re-imported the mod manually. None of this things worked.

Any kind of help with this problem would be great.

Do you think there is a way to get this to work with 3.8.x ?

If so, is there anyone who accomplished that..?
