that does not fix my issue ... with that option who ever has the most games played is at the first place regardless the wins and losses .
hands down i prefer the old standing system ..the user knew their points simple and easy and it gives the abbility to create REAL championship tournament ... now you have to be math guru to understand how this works and how the point system works...

HANDS DOWN THE OLD STANDING SYSTEM . at least for my website



you can also sort by win percentage

hi guys again . sorry for all the replays here ..
the last days i am testing the new version of sports prediction for joomla 3 and i must say that everything is very good EXCEPT the new standings system that makes the components totally unusable , and let me explain
first of all the standing system gives you the ability to prioritize the category that you want so always the first parameter is taking to consideration for the final standings ...
if for example you have the games played first, the user that have the most payed games is first in raking regardless if the second user have more wins ..
1 user1 10 games 4wins 6 losses
2 user2 9 games 8wins 1 loss

if you have the wins first the if a user plays only one game and its correct the he is always in the first places !!!!!!

lets say you have the PREF rating for the first criteria, then you have the same problem, when a user plays only on a game the prediction is correct, then this user is always in the first place ....with only one game !!!!!!!!!!
i am sorry to say that ,but that makes the new version unusable ... in a real competition the number of games is deferent for every user

so PLEASE reconsinter the old standing method with the new awesome features

thank you again guys



manos, to fix your problem, go to your menu item, and sort by number of games played and choose descending order


the new standings are much more advanced and precise, I love them

In this version you don't have setting how many points user gets, all is calculated over complex alghorithm. You have manual - pdf file inside package. All is inside.


I actually like the new version standings, it adds so any parameters and makes the standings quite accurate, the old version was too simple

Is good idea to make Asian Handicap also compatible with Joomla 3, but is not possible to make it before 2 months minimum (Asian Handicap is full 2 weeks work of one programmer). This mean: not for this FIFA world cup (Brazil, 2014 start is after about 3 months).

So, for next minimum 2-3 months Asian Handicap will be compatible only with Joomla 2.5. If you want to make website with such a paid games, you must use Joomla 2.5 only.



its ok i really like sports predictions too, it seems so much slicker on joomla 3 than on joomla 2.5 for some reason

this is actually a fantastic idea, do you have plans on implementing it for joomla 3? I have been looking for something like this for 2 years and the only thing that came close was sports predictions.

does 3d web design add games and odds?

Do you know the exact formula? I need to know exactly how it works. Thank you.



its included in the manual, the manual is included in the zip file along with the extension


PS - you can sort your standings by win % so you dont have to worry about pref rating

What I need for the time being is extended standings (Played,Won,Lost) and the bugs to be fixed.
I will never buy a component again without a demo version. Screenshots are only for presentations and cannot show bugs.

Thanks.



I dont know about verson 2.5, but the joomla 3 version has very detailed standings, including played, won and lost


also if you think component has a bug just let 3d design know, they always fix the problem for free

Hi Michalis, thank you for your reply. The formula is quite complicated, I think, I dont unterstand it at all. And I am affraid, my players wont understand it as well. Can you pls explain it in words?



well, the jist is, it gives you a rating based on how close your prediction was to the final result, the more accurate your prediction is, the lower your rating. so perfect prediction (exact score and winner) = 0 rating


the rating is calculated on three parameters from the look of the formula, a) predicting the correct team to win, B ) predicting the correct number of goals and c) predicting the correct score

Hello, I have following questions:

1. how can I change the accuracy calculation method in the version for joomla 3? I want to make the ranking in that way, where the tipsters are collecting points for their predictions and in the ranking table you can see how many points which tipster has.

2. I dont find any explanation what does the Probabilistic Rating mean and how is it calculated. The documentation for this component is very poor.

Please help

Thank you

Filip


filip, when you go to sportspredictions component in joomla admin panel, you will see on the top right an options button, from there you can change accuracy calculation method. there is no method were player gets points, they get a pref rating based on a statistical formula, just go to the manual, it gives you the formula and some explanation. it is included in the zip file you download

do you have firebug installed on your browser? if not, install firebug, use it to inspect the area you want to affect, it will tell you what class you need to apply css to, you can also do the changes live to see how they look before you edit your css files

if you are a novice, a quick youtube video on firebug will get you going, its really simple to use and awesome

if you already know this stuff I apologize for assuming you didnt



p.s. post the link if you want and ill check it with firebug, cant do it on my website cause i have joomla 3

I will take a look!


You must change accuracy calculation method from simple to advanced. With simple method user must guess only margin to get minimum error of 0. With advanced method user must guess exact score to get minimum error.


This is strange.I will take a look. Can you send me link?



in accuracy calculation method there is two options, normal accuracy and simple accuracy, i have normal accuracy, how do I switch to advanced method?

as for standings changing, yeah basically users that have the same pref rating keep changing positions in standings every time you check them, here is link


http://podosfairaki.com/component/sportspr...ngs&sp_cats[0]=2&sp_sort_cols[0][sortcol]=games_played&sp_sort_cols[0][sortdir]=DESC&sp_sort_cols[1][sortcol]=pref_rating&sp_sort_cols[1][sortdir]=ASC&Itemid=128


if you check user that is number 1, out of 3 games he only predicted one with exact score yet he has 0 pref rating

hello, I apologize for asking so many questions, usually they are important ones

I have set my joomla timezone to gmt +2

and all my game times are gmt +2, but there seems to be a difference of about 8 hours

so my games dont go offline until 8 hours after game time

which means I have to be present at starting time of every game to take it offline


I was looking for the instructions about time zone but couldnt find them, I remember seeing them somewhere




EDIT

ok I just added my first result, it was a draw, but everyone who predicted draw got a pref rating of 0, is that possible? game was atletico real which finished 2-2, should people which predicted the game to finish 1-1 for example, get a pref rating more than 0?

also standings are not consistent, every time i go back to check them the order of players keep changing

Yes! Standing and user standings are sorted by pref_rating ASC by default.


Yes, you can disqualify them. This can be done manually by unpublishing user predictions.
In "Administrator/Sportspredictions/Predictions" view you can filter by user and period.
Then disable predictions that you consider for unfair.
This will automatically change standings based on this predictions.


Follow this steps:

1. Open "/components/com_sportspredictions/models/userstandings.php" and find around line 64

$categories = $app -> input -> get('sp_cats', 0, 'raw');

2. Replace with following code.
Note that you must change 2,3.... with categories ids selected by default.
Note that if user change categories selection from filters he will be still able to see standings for different categories.

$categories = $app -> input -> get('sp_cats', [2,3....], 'raw');

3. Save and Upload



the problem is that this is how my website menu is structuered


e.g.

competition no1.
standings for competition no.1
user standings for competition no.1

competition no.2

standings for competition no.2
user standings for competition no.2

and so on and so on

i guess I cant do that then

thanks for the help

Yes! This link should work.



You must edit file! It is not so hard.

Follow this steps:

1. Open file "/components/com_sportspredictions/models/userstandings.php" and find around line 126

CODE
$default_sort_cols = array(
         array(
              "sortcol" => "pref_rating",
                "sortdir" => "ASC"
         )
);


2. Replace it with

CODE
$default_sort_cols = array(
        array(
              "sortcol" => "games_played",
                "sortdir" => "DESC"
         ),
         array(
              "sortcol" => "pref_rating",
                "sortdir" => "ASC"
         )
);


3. Save file and you are ready to go.



thanks


so are standings and user standings already sorted by pref rating?

can i just sort everything by pref rating, and if someone plays less games I disqualify them?

also, how can i chose to show user standings for only one tournament?

hello, can you please confirm that this link is accurate? my competition has not started yet and I am trying to make sure everything is in working order before it does

index.php?option=com_sportspredictions&view=standings&sp_cats[0]=2&sp_sort_cols[0][sortcol]=games_played&sp_sort_cols[0][sortdir]=DESC&sp_sort_cols[1][sortcol]=pref_rating&sp_sort_cols[1][sortdir]=ASC


this is to show standings for tournament number 2, and the rankings will be sorted were first player has most games played and most accurate predictions. is that correct


how can I do the same with user standings?

Is there a demo page we can view the new component to decide if we want to upgrade?

also can i make a suggestion? when we create menu item and choose to show tournament or standings, why not give ability in settings to chose which tournament to show and which tournament to show standings for? and also how the standings should be ordered?

that way we dont have to figure out the link to create the desired menu item

michalis, if you like our extension, please, vote for Sports Predictions in JED


done!


can you clarify something for me? the person with the lowest score is the winner right?

what happens if someone signs up in the middle of a tournament? or if someone leaves a few predictions behind? does he collect less points and have a higher chance of winning?

ok big problem

i created one tournament then i created a second and unpublished first tournament, but pagination still there, and when visitor clicks on second page, it gets this error

1064 You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ') AND `state`' at line 1 SQL=SELECT * FROM `btg0l_sportspredictions_predictions` `b` WHERE `game_id` IN() AND `state`;


and then component wont work at all it will stay on error even if you refresh

problem solved when i publish tournament

what am i doing wrong?



EDIT - ok so basically if i disable games/tournament, pagination does not go away, and when visitor goes on to second page, it either shows blank or causes the above error. and then it stays stuck there, even if user refreshes or leaves and comes back, he keeps going straight to error/blank page


anything?
