Darkwaltz4 & DragonByte Technologies are proud to present the much anticipated and long awaited [DBTech] vBCredits II Deluxe

Why [DBTech] vBCredits II Deluxe?

vBCredits II Deluxe is the evolution of the points hack that thousands of vBulletin owners have only been dreaming of. Completely rewritten to incorporate three years of requests and improvements, vBCredits II Deluxe is the pinnacle of simplicity and power for casual activity and serious ecommerce engines alike!

vBCredits II Deluxe is the most advanced and feature rich points system ever created. It is the only points system produced by the creator and coder of vBCredits v1-1.4 accept no substitutes from impostors.

Why vBCredits II Deluxe is an evolution of the typical points hack of the last decade

The typical points hack installs a standard column to your user table. You are stuck with it, but if you are lucky you can make it switch entirely to a different one.

While vBC2D installs a standard currency, you are free to remove it, and quickly integrate many third party currencies without any technical knowledge. The whole thing is made to be working with multiple currencies especially when they need to work together and the third parties didn't put in a way for that.

The typical points hack installs a couple actions with hardly any way to disable, modify, or add on to them. How they work is different every time.


vBC2D is built around a modular display and action system so actions come in standard formats with standard attributes. They are easy to break off or install more without bothering the main hack for updates. The standardization allows for global features to be available without the need for repeated coding, as well as exposing an API for third parties - all encouraging widespread support. It also means that no matter who made your third party actionset, the settings will automatically be consistent and support all features.

The typical points hack will just blindly add points to user accounts, leaving abuse wide open.

vBC2D records every single transaction and comes with many powerful anti fraud techniques to prevent abuse and limit their effectiveness. Not only are there several ways to qualify user actions, but also ways of obfuscating the system so it is difficult for users to come up with ways to game the system.

The typical points hack is only for earning.

vBC2D supports charging as well as earning for all actions, making the need for a companion shop optional.

The typical points hack is a cryptic mess of settings and math.

vBC2D has been organized in a linear fashion where all related items are in exactly one place. All options are fully explained and you are only ever shown what is relevant. Even advanced and uncommon settings will not be in your way - unless you specifically want to use them. The system holds your hand and it is easy to see exactly what your settings have done and quickly revert them if needed.

The typical points hack gets bloated once you've set up many options.

vBC2D was written in a way to be scalable yet maintain all of its features. A careful watch over database and code was kept to ensure the least amount of impact at all times. So far three big boards have used vBC2D for several months and reported no change in their performance.

The typical points hack is just the same old thing every few months.

vBCredits 1 was the typical points hack, and I had three years of customer support and requests to know what works and what didn't, and what everyone had wished points hacks would do but it just wasn't happening. Finally, vBC2D was written from the ground up and every single request was included in a unified, ultimate package.

this doesn't worth anything as vBc1 had donation which is a very important feature that vBc2 lacks, bites.

by the way, isn't that PixelF's product?

It does contain donation =) This is the fully featured official version. Knock off versions may be missing features.

And no, This product is owned by DarkWaltz4, who has been the coder of it from day 1 =)

as you can see, the original was also released by Darkwaltz4 http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=172399

Hope that clears those miconceptions up,

Iain

I do have to say, just because he coded it in the beginning doesn't mean he gets to keep the source code. If dark doesn't have written consent from PixelFX then this is copyright infringement.

Thanks

Donation feature is in Lite =)

It allows admins to give credits/gil/gold/whatever to someone, and also allows users to donate to each other =)

To answer your question yellow slider - yes, you can charge a fee to donate if you wish =)

John will post the details i am sure.

Sorry, you seem to be misinformed. Dark coded this, and he retains all rights to the code. He never had any contract with PixelFX, nor any agreement to give PixelFX the copyright to his work. Any work which a person creates is automatically, under law, copyrighted to them. This is the case here.

The only exception is if a contract exists which gives another party the right to the work created. That is not the case here.

If PixelFX is distributing Darks code without his permission then he is infringing on his copyright, as he has no legal basis to do so.

Regardless, this is not the place for this kind of discussion. If you do not have a comment or issue with the product itself, please don't post in this thread.

Thanks,

Iain

Yes, however only currencies held by users will be kept.

The settings had too radical of a change to be converted

Thanks for the heads up on that =)

For the interested: John has rescinded his offer to allow pixelFX to use his copyrighted works, though this isn't the place to go into the details why. Suffice to say John no longer wishes PixelFXStudios to distribute his copyrighted material.

He has, however, given them permission to continue to distribute existing products to existing customers so they are not inconvenienced - This doesn't include vBCredits II though.

This exact version?

Have you actually tried it to see? =)

It's different from any versions you may have seen released elsewhere, including Beta's.
