I have a bit of an odd request, I understand if it can not be supported, it involves a third party extension after all. but I have to ask.
I am migrating a forum, and the old forum used a chat client that had a dice rolling feature built into it.
To try and include dice rolling in some form is important to our community. But there is no such feature in mChat and sadly no officially supported Dice mod for phpBB 3.2 overall.
I have managed to dig out an experimental dice rolling mod though that does work with phpBB 3.2.4 and could suit our needs.

(for anyone interested note that you need to rename the first folder under extensions to 'oxpus', so it's /ext/oxpus/dice/ , for some reason the developer neglected this.)
But there is one problem. This dice mod extension has a setting that enables the extension to work per forum. So from the ACP you have to change a new setting under each sub-forum you want it to work in. Rolling the dice is after that done by a simple BBcode in any forum post.
Code: Select all
So when we try to use the BBcode in mChat it simply does not recognize it at all. It just prints out the command in clear text. The dice extension does not seem to be involved with the page at all.
I have found no way to enable the dice extension in the forum overall, it seems tied to work with individual subforums.
Does anyone have any suggestion for how this might be resolved? Could mChat somehow be linked to or inserted into a subforum?
We might otherwise try to alter the dice extensions code, or mChat itself to somehow force them to work together. But I thought it best to first see if anyone here could help, or if the mighty Kasimi had some insight into how this might work
