This mod is just what I've been looking for. Well done $tring. Looking forward to its release.

Just one question and apologies if it's already been answered, but can one just have the option of just predicting the winners with a potential bonus point awarded for a nominated match of the round?

Cheers
Hi,

No, this feature is not available. We've discussed the format a few times in this thread, and the conclusion is that to keep the game competitive we must have a system where users lose points for incorrect predictions.

You can of course configure just how many points are won or lost for predictions.

$
Ok, hope this doesn't sound stupid but can you configure 0 points lost as a workaround?

I remember seeing something about the scoring system earlier in the thread. I'll go back and try get my head around it. Again cheers for this mod.
Hi,

Zero points lost completely ruins the game. It's discussed earlier in the thread, and I've decided not to include that option.

Thanks

Having had a chance to go back through the thread I now understand the scoring system and why it is that way. Thanks. Any idea on a possible release date?

I am allowing a period of time to have feature requests and bug reports submitted. As you can see there are not many requests coming in now, but I will hold off on a RC release for now.

The final release will not be too much different from the current release. A lot of work has went in to this mod already, and it functions very well even at this Beta stage.

Thanks

Your users will have had the chance to place predictions after the game has ended. For this reason, the best thing to do is delete the fixture. Then add the fixture again in retrospective fixtures. This will allow you to set a score, and will keep your league table accurate.

Have a problem with thumbnails of team.
Updating a Flag of England image 100 x 65 pixel (W x H), thumbnail will be 30 x 20 pixels, does not match with the interface

A team image should generally be square, and ideally 100px X 100px. I haven't "forced" a square image, as some may struggle to find an image that is exactly the same width and height. However, as I say when choosing images for teams the width should match the height as closely as possible.

I'll add a better explanation on the image upload page.

Thanks

Hi $tring,
Thank for your replying. I have a naive request:
EURO 2012 is upcoming. Can this version add features to set for a tournament (with many group)? ;)

Hi,

I did intend to have the next version as feature complete. However, this is a good suggestion as it would pretty much "complete" the mod as far as basic functionality is concerned.

Let me have a think about this, and I'll post back soon.

Thanks for the suggestion.

First off, this is a great mod and very nice looking. Two issues for me:

1) I cannot upload team/league images. I searched the thread and you said to CH MOD images/sportsbook to 755 and I did that and still no dice. Just to be clear, this images folder is the one off of the root right, and not buried deep inside another folder, right? Also, for some reason that folder didn't exist until I created it.

2) Would it be possible to have games not count in league standings? For example, if I am trying to have an EPL league but want to let users pick a friendly match I don't want that other team showing up in the EPL standings since they don't belong in that league. Maybe a check mark when creating the match to signify it is an out of conference match and it won't be counted toward the actual league standings but users can still predict it. (I hope that example works, I'm really talking about college football in the States :D )

Which folder did you have to create? I assume you are running ver. 0.3.0-beta? The images directory is at root level, and Sportsbook integrates as follows:

images/sportsbook/index.htm
images/sportsbook/leagues/index.htm
images/sportsbook/teams/index.htm

If this is not the directory structure you have in place, then please upload from the mod root files provided.

This is the "competitions" facility that has been requested in various different forms. Yes, I need to add this facility and plan to do so for the next release.

Ok guys, I've reached a decision regarding the direction of this mod.

It's going to go forward as a soccer mod. This means it will stay in beta for a while yet, as I implement all relevant feature suggestions.

Apologies to those who are currently using this mod for sports outwith soccer. Hopefully it can still meet your needs but it was always written with soccer in mind, and it's now time to shape it accordingly.

Thanks

DST Ending This Weekend

With this situation coming upon us this weekend, I cannot predict if your fixture times for matches after this weekend will remain accurate.

If you do have problems with fixture times after this weekend a simple SQL command will fix this. Simply post back in this thread if you have any problems.

Thanks

Hi, It's a very good mod, thanks. I've been using for a week. :)

I have one suggestion. If the matches will start different hours on the same day, we need to add the fixtures one by one. Can you make fixture adding with only day selecting not with time? I mean first we will set the day and on the next page when selecting the team we will also set the time from drop-down list next to the matches. It will be more easier I think, especially if we have lots of leagues.
