Well you see all the good vB hacks we have and/or that are in development.

Leasane(sp) Store Hack how many people love this hack? or The Upcoming RPG Hack. and vB3 comes out. I not for sure on this but will any of vB2 hacks work with vB3. I mean all these hacks we have now would pretty much be worthless.

If I am wrong just tell me and I will delete thread

People with a crap load of hacks probably won't upgrade until a decent amount of hacks are converted to vb3.

And some people aren't even going to update to vb3.

So I don't see these hacks going away.

really? I might not upgrade right away unless they have some good options in there I wanna work with a demo version before anything else but yea dont you think it would be hard to convert some of the hacks?

Who knows Mystic...

The Coding for vB3 is going to be alot different to vB2...

I dont remme which staff said about this but hackers will have to update the hacks due to different codes but I wonder will they update?

As for me, I ll not update 2.2.6 to 3.0 though.. until all of hacks that I used update to work with 3.0 Also as for any new always come up with bugs, problems, etc.. so I rather to wait and let others deal with bugs or problems with 3.0 until they iron it out then I ll use 3.0 (or 3.1, 3.2 etc..) :p

Well the only hacks I ever installed on my board are going to be built-in to vB3 so I'm upgrading as soon as the beta is out! And then I might add more hacks but I cant think of any that I'd want to add right now.

I like to keep a nice simple board, nothing fancy. It works good for me and most(if not all) of my members like it that way too..

as chen said some time ago, none of the hacks are useless.
there are surely people which won't upgrade to vb3.

also some hacks are already included in vb3
and i think hacks which are used very ofter will be updated.
if not by the author, then anotherone will do it with the authors permission

so no panic ;)

I suppose...

It just depends on how many people will give up;)

When IS vB3 going to come out?

16 Sep 2002, 18:30
there is no final dateline now.

it's done when it's done ;)
it depends on the beta period...

16 Sep 2002, 18:57
Hmm, im waiting till 3.1 comes out personally so everything will have been sorted out in 3.0 ^_-

I'll probably not upgrade to vB3 straight away but i'm not sure. If it looks very promising I might though :D

I don't really mind about the hacks though :)

I think a lot of the larger hacks will work ok with vb3, assuming that you are willing to work with the code a bit. Most large hacks rely on a lot of their own code and not so much on vB's code, so it's just a matter of finding the right spots to insert little things.

I dunno what everybody is so scared about... :)

I assume that templates will just be imported over... I hope. :) It's not the big hacks I'm worried about, it's all the small custom ones I have put into vB2 (some of which have been there for so long I can't even remember what is code and what is hack).

I love my hacks! In a platonic way, that is. I'm waiting until my biggest hacks are updated, for sure.
