vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (8 votes - 4.88 average) Installs: 77
Released: 12 Jan 2010 Last Update: 12 Aug 2010 Downloads: 310
Not Supported Uses Plugins Additional Files Translations  

Daily Game posts a new flash game to your vBulletin once per day in a new thread. Daily Game will help your vBulletin by:
  • Starting up conversations on slow days
  • Increasing retention since users are playing on your forum
  • Help you get links and improve SEO (flash games get a lot of links!)
  • Make you money! Use your own ad code to display an ad while the flash game is loading. These pre-roll ads get very high eCPM!

Install time: 5 minutes
Installation difficulty: Easy
Demo: http://www.playedonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=40

Updated to version 1.5 : No manual template modifications and title and content customization

Updated to version 2.1 : simple_xml support is no longer required, enabled bbcodes on the game thread, support for switched off boards.

Installation instructions
  1. Upload add_daily_game.php to the vBulletin root directory
  2. Import the product XML file (Plugins & Products -> Manage Products - > [Add/Import Product])
  3. Configure the Daily Game settings under vBulletin Options -> vBulletin Options -> Daily Game:
    • Set “Enabled” to Yes
    • Visit www.playedonline.com/register_vbulletin to register (input your forum's url and your email) and get a shared key for authentication.
    • Configure which userid will post the daily games (input 0 for guest)
    • Choose a forum for Daily Game
    • Customise the title (useful for non-English forums) or leave blank for default
    • Enable or disable description and instructions
    • Paste ad code (e.g. AdSense) to show a pre-roll ad before the game starts (optional, leave empty to show no ads)
    • Click the Test link you got in the registration e-mail to post a test daily game (you can delete the test post after you verify that it works)
    • You're done! A daily game will be posted on your forum every day at 3am EST.
  4. Optional : if you switch off your vBulletin from time to time you can make sure the games are posted even if the board is off by making those small changes:
    • Add the following code to /includes/functions.php

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

    • In global.php find the line

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

      and replace with

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

scottct1: check your Moderated Thread
squall leonhart: the game will be automatically posted around 4pm-5pm at GMT+7.
You can't test that way.

Installed... the test game worked fine so I'm hoping for the best.

Does everyone signed up for this system get the same game each day or is it random?

Any way to set a "Post Icon" for when the game is posted?

Hi, the games are selected daily and you will never get the same game

Where is that "Post Icon" you would like to change?

When you start a new thread you get to select a post icon, something like: or

Just curious if there is a way to pick a post icon for the daily game post?

Do the games all have associated thumbnail images, by any chance? The reason I ask, is because I have a few features on the site that pull images from a thread. If they do have associated images, I was wondering if you could included them in a hidden DIV inside the post. They would not be visible when viewing the post, but scripts that look for images would include them when generating thumbnails.

I do the same for RSS feeds from YouTube. I put the extra info YouTube supplies, which includes a thumbnail from the video. When it posts, you don't see the extra info, but things like my articles forum or my Wibiya Bar's recent posts display the image as a thumb.

Is there any way for the board to track scores? This would add competition between users, which usually means the users stay longer in the forum and access it oftener.

It's been 3 days since I installed the mode and I haven't received any games yet. How can I test if the installation is correct?

Nope, still posting at my forums, must be something you've blocked or turned off!
