Coming from someone who has used this application before -- I can assuredly say that it's not worth the $50 bucks it costs, including the $24 annual subscription that backs it, costing more than hosting a site for only a year...
For those curious, the tournament mod is set on a ladder and bracket function. It would be best for video games like Call of Duty where you can put in teams and then go head to head to see who wins. You place the groups in line, but the system is entirely buggy in doing so and there's no mod-help once you've wasted your money.
Inputting image data doesn't work the first time and has to be edited to get it to change, once it's set already. There's no size comparisons or examples for what to use, so you will spend 20 minutes trying to edit an image to fit for one type of combat or style of tournament.
It's clunky with it's wording and poorly, 'technically' written - to where trying to use the system is more of a headache than useful.
You have to have exact team numbers that are divisible by four. Four, eight, twelve, sixteen, etc -- otherwise, you can't have a tournament held at all. If you have seven people sign up, you have to kick out three of them because the tournament wont work otherwise.
Also, all of the values have to be hand-added instead of having a functional check-system, if you wanted to have thread battles or roleplaying combat.
All of this is to say that we didn't ever get a tournament off the ground because the mod didn't function properly in the end.
Hope that's a good enough review for those of you looking to blow 50 bucks.
The work you've put into this theme is incredibly intensive. Excellent job for all of your work.
My question is: the youtube video feed at the start-up on the index -- is there a way to randomize it with several video links, so that if you refresh the page, a different video will play? Maybe a list of 10 videos and it'll cycle through them?
I've noticed this time and time again with the search function in IPB and I'm wondering what in the world the code is actually doing when you punch something into the search function.
I come to your forum, looking for a specific mod. So I type in "Dice" because I'm looking for a Dice Rolling mod and it brings up like 8 pages worth of stuff, of which 3 posts are dedicated to old mods and the rest don't make any sense, lol.
What exactly does the software do when you plug something like that in?
If you need a fellow roleplayer to bounce ideas off of, let me know and I can give you some ideas - because I've been looking for a multi-linking system that allows you to post as different characters while remaining under one SN for a long time now.
I'm also using 3.3, sadly, so I'm waiting for this mod update to arrive. ;]
