Just what we need... NOT!

Post by TaleSpinner » Thu Dec 14, 2006 3:04 pm

I've been scouting out the MODs forum for phpBB, and unbelievably, someone created a MOD that allows you to play Monopoly on a phpBB forum:

So, what do you say, ben? ;)

They seem to be slashdotted KK. I can't get to the file, I'll try again in 20 mins.

Actually, it'll be fun if you managed to put in the DiceMod in this forum. What's a gamer's forum without the ability to roll dice, eh?

The good news is the dice roller is installed.

The bad news is it's possible for a user to continually edit their post until they get the desired roll. The only way around this is to turn off Post Editing and that would suck.

So we do have a dice roller but at this stage it's not secure :) If you really want to nail legitimate and secure dice rolls you should use:

http://www.irony.com/mailroll.html

[dice]1d4 = 439151108 [/dice]
[dice]1d6 = 441984731 [/dice]
[dice]1d8 = 1228918705 [/dice]
[dice]1d10 = 1226763964 [/dice]
[dice]1d12 = 1045196148 [/dice]
[dice]1d20 = 864602519 [/dice]

Well, at worst case, a game moderator can be in charge of rolling the dice.

Great work, though!

Hmm.. let's see:

[dice]4d6 = 879069284 = Fixed[/dice]
