Ah...

Finally:)

I finished my manual upgrade from vB 2.2.6 to 2.2.8 today!:)

Ive uploaded all my files, and all of the hacks appear to work (still):)

Its a long and arduous job, and I dont recommend anyone else doing it unless they have to:( (Or want to - Crazy fools! :p)

The thing is hellsatan, not everyone installs as many hacks as you ;) on average, I think people only tend to install 10-20 hacks, not into triple figures ;)

Lol...

That is probably true;)

There are probably some modifications / hacks that dont work, I have just yet to find them:)

chris, a good tip to update really fast a hacked board is to do a compare between the original files.
grab a copy of your 226 (clean fresh, as you download it from vBulletin) and the new 228. then compare them. every time you see a code change copy it and paste it onto your hacked board.

in this way, you are sure you didnt missed anything. :)

Hey Hell Satan, try Araxis merge, Ive never used it, but I saw a tutorial for it somewhere here.

Seems like it would do the job, but since youve upgrades, lets jut scratch that.

@TECK - Thats exactly what I did...

The only change I missed out on was the change regarding how attachments were stored on the DB, cause, well, I use PPN's "Attachments as Files" hack:)

@Drk - :D

When I upgrade, even with Araxis Merge, I always have 1 or 2 bugs that my staff will find for me. Thank God I have a staff of 40... they are good at beta-testing and finding all my bugs quickly. :D
