Any suggestions for the 4.x version? It's really a big ordeal for me to update these because 4.x is so different and I mostly only learned what I needed to do 3.x ones so I have to do more extra learning for 4.x than most have to. So I can't add much, mostly just want to update it to work without adding features, but I may add a few.

I probably should add all the forms in the acp instead of the public side, though, but I'm sure some people will not like that and rather it be on the public side.

Everything's been slow getting updated because I was so swamped with work, but I am planning on really getting things updated soon. My guess for this particular app would be March, but I'll have to see how things go. It could be quicker or slower if I run into issues figuring out 4.x. Also, let me know if there should be any changes in the app. I may be able to do some changes or I may update it to be just how it is now and then do another version for changes, where it is finished sooner.

Hi MM.  I can't think of any changes off the top of my head.  I used to use this on my old site, and now that I've started a new site, I've had some interest in the app again. ^_^  I remember loving it when we used it.

I'm sure hoping to hurry and get my apps updated. It's been a nightmare trying to keep up with everything, partly because I have a hand injury and have to keep typing so that makes me some days have to just not work on them. I want to get this and my tournaments app, especially, updated soon!

Really looking forward to this, I used to have vBullein and used to use vBookie, is this app similar? I'll definitely be downloading this. What will the price be for this app for 4.x.x

Many thanks.

The price will probably be close to what it is now for the 3.x version. If it goes up any, it would only be a few dollars. I am probably putting it in this same download where people who had the 3.x one wont have to buy a whole separate app, even though the work it takes to upgrade these can get time consuming sometimes.

I didn't ever use the vb one so it's hard to tell. Basically on this you get points (it's best if you let members earn points by posting, really, where they have enough ways to get points when they run out of them) and bet them on who will win a particular game. You can also have more than 2 competitors in a betting matchup. For instance, I have done it before where it would name all movies nominated for Oscars and you pick which one will win.

Then also it has bracket/playoff contests for basketball, baseball, football (American), etc... People can always make suggestions, as well.

There should be no problem getting it done way before then. I've got 3 big apps, with this one being the second to finish. I should be ready to put all of my time into them in probably around 2 weeks and I should get the tournaments app and this one both done before the NFL season were to start. If I have to later on, I will spend more time per day and try to get them done. A lot of updating them will be easy, then other areas I have to learn what to do and it's kind of hard to get help on here from others, sometimes, so other than that slowing things up, it should go quickly.

If you could make it like vBookie then that would be amazing, sorry for not looking through the thread and finding out but i'm watching Middlesbrough v Brighton and the second halfs just kicked off.

Thanks in advance.

PS, if this is very similar to vBookie whcih is on the vBulletin forum software then i'll be buying this.

I don't know how much would need to be changed since I haven't run a vb forum. I think I need to have a more clear setup on odds, for one thing. I just use "odds" mostly as how many points, runs, goals, etc.... someone is supposed to win by, rather than money odds, although I tried to clear it up in recent versions where it would just call that margin, I think, and odds was the payout ratio.

Basically you add a matchup that can have really any number of teams and you can make it where either it could be straight up just pick the winner or it could be they must win by x amount to be declared the winner. And you can have it pay out at whatever ratio you want, pretty much. I wanted to make it where you can pick who finishes first, second, third, which would be good for horseracing, but I don't think I ever got it put in yet.

Yeah that sounds good.  On vBookie, you'd start a new post with vBookie ticked as an option.  It would bring you to the vBookie page abd you'd have the title of the vBookie such as the winner in the premiership.  Then you would have 20 options listing all the teams,  I would manually add them and then the odds for each of the teams.  Then when the outcome was decided,  go to the vBookie thread and have the option to settle it by selecting which team has won.  It was pretty simple but very effective.  My forum members used to love it.

The way it's been in this one is most of it is done through the app area on the public side. And you add each team only once, and then keep choosing them each time they are in some game/match/tournament/whatever to bet on. So if some team were called "Team A", you add them on the add teams form and then every time Team A is involved in something you simply select them from a dropdown for that particular match.

Then, basically, when there is a winner, you go to the app area and select the winner. I think I made it where it adds a topic in the forums for the match, so basically it's kind of opposite of how you described, you go to the app to do things, then it makes the topic, rather than you adding the teams or matchups from a topic itself.

That sounds great. I'm looking forward to you releasing this for the latest version of Invision. 

Will this be ready for the beginning of the new Football Season in August.

If not will there be a beta version which I could test on my forum?

Thanks in advance

Michael

I am determined to release it by then. As long as nothing major stops me from doing it. I've had so many things come up and health issues slow me down, etc..., but I want to get both this app and my tournaments app done hopefully way before August. Very soon I should be able to spend full time on them.

I was going to do my tournaments app first, but I see now it's a bigger pain to update apps than I was hoping, so I am probably going to do this one first, but it's still tough to know when I can finish. I am hoping by early July.

My learning ip.suite 4's setup is going very frustratingly, but I am still hoping for the best. I think the first full weekend of games for ncaa isn't until September and NFL I think is that month, too, so I am just hoping to get it done as far ahead of then as possible, but it's a real headache figuring some of this stuff out and at the same time having some health issues happening. I'll probably have a lot better idea in a week or so how long it will take.

Hoping you haven't given up on this. I'd even take a scaled down version. People on my board really love this app. 

 

I've not used this app before but i'm still patiently waiting for this. Even if its not ready until the new Premier League season in August, just some information on its progress would be nice. :)
