Not Supported Is in Beta Stage  

RPG Integration Hack BETA by Bitsys
(vBulletin versions 2.2.6?, 2.2.7, 2.2.8, 2.2.9, and 2.3.0)

This hack combines several RPG hacks into one and adds a battle hack. The hacks included in this hack are:

In addition to re-releasing thse hacks, I have added features to all of them (or else there would be no point in re-releasing).
  • The RPG hacks are now all editable via the admin control panel.
  • The itemshop has been somewhat optimized and some fixes are included that reduce queries in showthread.php and itemshop.php . Also, Lesane's Store Hack has been integrated with the Itemshop. This can be toggled in the admin cp.

This means that the RPG hacks are database driven and have been partially integrated with the Itemshop. This was necessary in order to make a battle hack, which is also included.

Since most people are familiar with the RPG and Itemshop hacks, I will give a brief description of the Battle hack. If you want more information about either of the other two hacks, then refer to their original posts or download the .zip file and read the "readme.txt". If you are a visual learner, then you can scroll down to the second post in this thread, which contains the pictures of all of these hacks.


Battle Features:
  • The battle format is turn-based.
  • HP, AP, PP, and MA are automatically deducted based on what action a user takes, the damage dealt to an opponent, etc.
  • Opponents in battle can use spells, one-handed weapons, two-handed weapons, shields, potions, or their fists.
  • A battle is over when a combatant dies, retreats, or there is a draw. Battles can also be ended via the admin control panel.
  • A wager can be set on a battle. Whoever wins the battle recieves the amount of money as specified in the wager. Outside bets are not supported yet.
  • Battles can be either public or private, as determined by the admin control panel. If private, battles require a password and battles can not be browsed. If public, then any user can view any battle, but only the original combatants can fight.
  • The results of a battle can be posted into a designated "Battle" forum, as specified in the admin control panel.
  • Inactive battles can be pruned.

Getting started with the battle hack:
  • In order to get items to disply in the item shop, you must select which items go with which RPG Type in the "Edit Item Type" Menu of the admin cp.
  • In order to assign which weapon categories do what kind of damage in battle, you must go to the "Edit Category" link located in the "Edit Items" menu of the admin cp. Select a Battle type for the category and save changes.
  • In order to do damage to your opponent when in battle, you must assign the amount of damage each weapon does in the "Edit Items" menu of the admin cp. The default damage is set to 0. The same principle goes for armor, potions, spells, shields, etc.
Please refer to the screenshots or "readme.txt" for more information.


Why is this a BETA hack?

I have tested the installation of this hack on vBulletin versions 2.2.7, 2.2.8, 2.2.9, and 2.3.0. However, because of the scale of this hack, there is plenty of room for errors. Therefore I am making the following disclaimer while this hack is in the BETA stage:


WARNINGS:
  • Do not install this hack on a production board. Please keep this hack, while in the BETA stage, to a test board. The reason for not installing this on a production board is that I cannot provide upgrade instructions for going from one version of the beta hack to the next version of the beta hack. Also, this hack does not have an un-install script yet. So please remember, if you decide to install this on a production board, you are doing so at your own risk.
  • Do not apply this hack if you already have ANY of the included hacks installed. Please refer to the list at the top to see if you have any of the conflicting hacks installed. Since I am asking that you install this on a test board right now, this should not be a problem since you can re-install a fresh copy of vBulletin in under 5 minutes, as a test board of course.
  • There is currently no upgrade script for installing this over any of the included hacks. I will make one when this beta is completed.
  • If you choose to install the postbit features, then an additional query will be added to showthread.php. This query is a SELECT COUNT(*) query and adds around .001 seconds to the page generation. If you don't like the idea of adding an additional query to showthread.php, then you have the option of not installing that part of the hack. See the install file for more information.


Miscellaneous:

The beta of this hack is free. The full/final release will also be free.

All installation instructions and credits are included in the attachment. If you find a bug or have problems, feel free to post them here and I will try to fix them. Please read the included readme file if you have questions. If you can't find the answer, then post your question here and I will answer it.

All hacks included in this hack have been re-released with permission of their original creators.

Screenshots are in the second post of this thread.


Installation:

Installation instructions are included in the .zip file.


ACKK! I NEED HELP!!!

If you are having trouble and need some help, please refer to the help documentation included in the .zip file. It is located in the "extra" directory.

If you need help and you have already installed the hack, make sure you check the RPG Manual link in the admin cp. Also, make sure you read the FAQ included with the manual.

MY THREADS STOPPED DISPLAYING CORRECTLY!!!
See if you are experiencing one of the following symptoms:
  • All of my users are being labeled as "Guest" in the postbit template.
  • No posts are showing up.
  • None of the RPG variables will display in the postbit. The element/gender/class images are broken.
  • I get database errors when I go to showthread.php

If you are experiencing one or more of the above problems, then your showthread.php file was not edited correctly by the installer. This problem usually occurs on boards with other hacks installed that modify the queries in showthread.php. Please go to http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...postcount=2261 and follow the instructions there.


Add-ons:
The following add-ons are not included in the default installation. You must apply these add-ons after you have installed the hack successfully.

Well, there is not really any "installation" of vbHacker. You simply upload the vbhacker file and you are done. So, umm, that would be the best way to get the text file. However, I must warn you that I doubt you want to manually install this hack. There are 51 new templates, 3 template edits, 16 file edits, and 32 queries (roughly). If you have the stamina and patience, then go for it. However, I suggest vbhacker. I tried to make the install file as clear as possible on what to do and what not to do with the vbhacker part of the installation.
EDIT: I have attached the vbHacker generated text file. It is 160KB. Good luck


Anime-loo:
That would be great if you could clean up the templates a little.

I think it looks great! Excellent mod! I'll have to toy around with it after it comes out of beta. Maybe I'll transform it from a Battle mod into a Drag Racing mod (buy N20, Turbos, ect..ect..) since my site is a car site.
