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

Chess and reversi works fine now, just tested it with two accounts, and can be played with multiple accounts created by the same person. (login with one account with firefox, and another account with Opera)

But there is an issue with escaping slashe's from the tables.

Opponent appears to have left the game. {\n}{\n}You may leave also and the game will be logged as a draw, or you may wait until the timer runs out for them to return. {\n}{\n}If they fail to return to the game before the timer runs out the game will be recorded as a win for you.
Also there is a style issue when play black jack, the total cash amount and bet, seems to over lap the images. Image is below

Is it just the game php files which have changed, or the swf files? Can I just upload the full contents of the updated file without overwriting the imported stats? (Since those are all stored in the database anyway).

Or do I need to be selective about it?

Any changes to settings.php or can I use my existing file to save having to re-do my changes?

Which files should we upload for the update?

Anyone else having problems adding/resetting money for usergroups? Do we input usergroup ID or what?

Is there anyway to ban certain users from the system? (People who abuse it.)

You need do this:

only class_boardgame.php and class_poker.php need to be uploaded from 0.9.6

you can add cash to all usergroups - just write - " all " and amount - what you want (10000, 100000...)

after I installed this, I am now getting security token errors on other pages. Any reason why that would be happening? Thanks for any help.

In the betting option Betting:

Can there only be two outcomes or can there be a draw? So you have Man Utd Win, Draw, Boca Juniors Win
