Just follow the directions carefully in the zip based on whether you are clean installing or upgrading :)

Fully integrated with vBulletin and easily integrated with third party scripts:
Many hacks allow you to specify a points system by entering the table and column for the points data. Use TABLE: user COLUMN: credits when integrating vBCredits with such hacks (note: you may need to include your table prefix with some hacks)! If you are unsure about integration - ask me!

Why is this version not the gold version yet?
vBCredits 1.4rc1 went through a long bugtesting process at the official site, and rc2 is largely bug free in its entirety. However, *it is missing most of the admin help and post/thread deletion actions are temporarily removed while I figure out how to fix them.

Thank you for using vBCredits, I would be happy to hear your feedback and correct anything that comes up. For more tailored support, please indicate you have installed this hack. Use of this free hack requires that you retain the copyright line at the bottom of the forum (PM me otherwise). If you do not agree with this, please do not use vBCredits - thank you for your understanding and support!

Sweet work. Would be nice to integrate with VbPlaza

Darkwaltz4 10 Jul 2007 23:08

I'm not sure about vbplaza but ill look into it, I thought it had its own points system, which would make it difficult to have it use this one without modification of vbplaza

Vegetrunks 10 Jul 2007 23:14

Oh oh! Is it compatible with future Triad³?

Darkwaltz4 10 Jul 2007 23:20

yes, in fact i just posted in the tt thread that vbcredits will be the default setting for Triad³ :) so install this on your boards now so your users will have some points to use when Triad³ is released! :-p

Deepdog009 11 Jul 2007 00:18

Darkwaltz4 can U uplink some screenshots...?;)

Pc 1203 11 Jul 2007 00:29

Looks great. :D

This looks like exactly what I've been waiting on. I'd love to know if it integrates with vBookie. Also, if it takes making this a paid addon to make sure it works with future versions of vB and gets updated, please do it. I know my community has felt sort of empty without a cash system to use.

I'd also suggest adding a lottery. It seems like a simple addition, but many members on my board love putting money into the pool everyday to see if they win.

I'm also not sure if it has this feature, but a donate feature would be great, so that richer members could give money to poorer ones.

Darkwaltz4 11 Jul 2007 00:38

:-p theres little use for screenshots, but ill see about adding some tomorrow if its that important...

also, ill look into the integration with vbookie. does it have an option to use an existing points hack?

i downloaded vbookie, ill put together instructions for integration tonight and post them tomorrow.

lottery/bank would be a good idea, but for the shop thing :)

donation of points is already included in this version :)

okay...apparently no vbplaza. if anyone has a copy to give me, please email me it and ill be able to take a look

Thanks very much for this great hack.

Just installed and receive this error.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ':' in /home/auctions/public_html/forum/includes/class_dm_user.php on line 1429

Any help will be appreciated.


Darkwaltz4 11 Jul 2007 00:59

Ah, I think I forgot to highlight a row in the instructions

what you did was copy the next part for find: and then replace:

to fix, find:

So I should replace $this->set_registration_defaults();


the ADD BELOW: code?

Thanks for responding so fast!!

Darkwaltz4 11 Jul 2007 01:07

Sorry about the mixup, I converted my notes about file edits to the


stuff, and i missed highlighting that particular part.

if possible, you might want to start over with a fresh class_dm_user.php file and reapply the file edits to it. Basically, you have to undo the addition you made, and redo it correctly (which is what the previous posts instructions have you do.)

Anyway, I updated the download with the proper highlighting in the instructions file so this shouldnt happen again :-p

asw 11 Jul 2007 01:13

That's why it's always wise to backup!

I'll reinstall sir. Thanks for your outstanding support!

asw 11 Jul 2007 01:17

Worked like a charm!

I am sorry if I missed something but where do the members view or otherwise see their credits?

Thanks again-:up:
