Hello Guys,

We've just finished work on the Fully Customizable Prize/Game plug-in for Ventrino Software.

The plug-in is fully customizable with templates, much the same way as you customized your TE.

You can offer up to 9 different prizes, including combo prizes (that is, cash & credits, or even cash, credits, banners and texts!)

The plug-in can be run as either a prize page, a game page, or a combination of the two, meaning at random either one or the other.

For a limited time it will be available for 50$, but the price will be going up shortly to 75$.

I hope you enjoy the script and make good use of it.
=============================================
NEW NEW NEW
New manager page, easier to work with than before.
SQL code to "shrink" the db:
SQL
DELETE FROM ryg_prizegame_stats WHERE date < "2009-06-01"

will delete all entries older than June 1, 2009
=============================================
=============================================
NEW NEW NEW
Completely re-written!!!
New features, includes the ability to set a "maximum" amount per prize (Total per prize option) the ability to display on the manager which page you are running as (Prize page replacement, Games page replacement, or Controlled Rotation.)

Also you no longer need the SQL code to "shrink" the db, you simply set the number of days you want to keep data for, and it does the housekeeping for you!
=============================================

Thanks,

Ray

Hello Ladies and Gents,

It's a game that can be customized to your own look and feel, and heck, you can call it what you want. The beauty of this game, imho, is that you can truly make it your own.

Basically the game is a simple push a button, win a prize type of game, you can set from 1 to 6 buttons on the page, and depending on how lucky your member is, they press a button, and either are rewarded with a prize, or are told sorry, try again.

But if you don't want a game, instead you simply want to give away different types of prizes, you could set it to Prize mode, and the page that appears will simply advise your member that s/he has won XX as a prize.

And you can set it to do one or the other at random... smile.gif

The prizes are set up by the individual owners. You can set the game to give out cash, credits, banners or text ads. You can offer a combination of these as well (cash & credits; cash, credits & texts; etc.)

Thanks Scott for getting the game up and running in a live environment and letting others know about it!

If you want to see a manager interface, I've got one available on my beta site for a limited time... You'll be able to access this until Tuesday next week with these credentials:
User: AdminTester
Pass: Adm1nT3st3r
site: http://beta.theroadtoonlinesuccess.biz

You'll also get a peek at the Personalized splash page settings here. smile.gif

In the manager you set:
Prizes - a list of 9 prizes that can be awarded to your members, inculding these types of prizes: Cash, Credits, Banners, Texts, Combo1, Combo2, Combo3, Combo4 & Combo5 (identified as prize 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 respectively)
The Prize list could be something like this: 3,3,3,4,4,4,1,2,5
This means 3 prizes of Banners, 3 prizes of Banners (3x3's), 3 prizes of Texts (3x4's), one Cash Prize(1x1), one Credit Prize(1x2) and one Combo1 Prize(1x5)

Combo Prize Types
i.e. : combo5 = 2,3,4 (Credits, Banners & texts)

Amounts per prize,
i.e.
Prize 1 Amount = 25 Banners
Prize 2 Amount = 50 Banners
Prize 3 Amount = 100 Banners
Prize 4 Amount = 250 Texts
Prize 5 Amount = 500 Texts
Prize 6 Amount = 1000 Texts
Prize 7 Amount = .05 Cash
Prize 8 Amount = 10 Credits
Prize 9 Amount = 10 Credits & 25 Banners & 250 Texts
(assuming prize list above of 3,3,3,4,4,4,1,2,5)

Finally allowing you to set, via the manager, what you want to show when you say you're sorry about the loss in the game. Many will probably use the template instead though. smile.gif

Take a look, let me know what you think!

One improvement has been suggested, and will be implemented at a future date, that is, a prize cap. When a given amount of prizes have been awarded, that prize is removed from the game.

Ray

Hello To all,

There have been a number of updates to the original design for this page, including a better "cheater_catcher" and a report going back to admin about possible cheaters.

There has also been added some limited reporting on what has been awarded to members during surfing. This is still preliminary and winds up taking a lot of page room, as I haven't yet "paged" the results, will be done soon.

Coming over the next few days will include a brief summary of what has been given away, in a format similar to:
QUOTE
Cash | Credits | Banners | Texts
amt | amt | amt | amt

I've had a couple of reports from clients and have tried to answer them all, if anyone feels they have been missed, please let me know. For those who have not yet seen the newly improved cheater_catcher, please use your download link from your email to download the latest package.

-- Claudia, the purchase link can be found in the signature:
Customizable Prize/Game combo plug-in for the Ventrino Script.

I just had to jump in and comment. I LOVE THIS SCRIPT, YOU SET IT ONCE AND FORGET IT, [ UNLESS YOU WANT TO CHANGE SOMETHING ]

I used my own graphics and made my own buttons and it is so cool. It was so easy to customize it to how I wanted it to look for my site using my own graphics and buttons.

Love it Ray, simply love it!!!

That's not what I heard you say when we first started to set up your script tongue.gif


I am glad that you are liking it now though smile.gif I know that we put in a good bit of time to setup the customization for you. The time is ALWAYS well spent!

LOL, naughty boy Robin. I had to figure out what the heck I was doing. I try to give Ray a good plug and you come along and mess it up. You should have just agreed with me cause I know you like it too.

You guys crack me up!

I know how much Robin likes the script, and I've a pretty good idea how Lorraine felt about it at first... wink.gif But once you've got it set up to your liking, the tweaks over time are relatively simple and painless... smile.gif

Now for the next big thing eh? smile.gif

Hi Ray

The plug in is going good and I still love it however is there a way to do something about all the rows in the database?
I have 4737 rows and it is going to be a space hogger if we leave it to grow and grow. The info is useful and I do check the rows for info but it is very time consuming going through page after page looking for info.

HI Surfaholic,

You can run this command:

delete From ryg_prizegame_stats where date < "2008-11-01 00:00:00"

just change the date to be the cut off. I run this each month, so my table doesn't get too full.

There is also a way to modify the default from 15 records shown per page. I have mine set to 50 so that I have less pages.

Hope this helps,

Robin

Hi Robin

Thanks for that info very helpful, I will run that command every so often.
How can it be modified to show 50 pages? I can't seem to find it and it is probably staring me in the face

It's not staring you in the face. Its in the php files. I will need to find it and post it for you.

ok in the file public_html\manager\custom\prizegame_manager.php

Scroll to the bottom (well almost bottom) and look for this code:



</table>
</p>
<?
$limit=15;
$Prev = "Previous";
$Next = "Next";


If you change

$limit=15;

to

$limit=50;

this will display 50 records on the page. You can change that number to 100, 75, or any value that you want to have. Just remember that it will need to load that many records upon each page load, so I would not go much past 100.

Robin
