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.

Question: I am trying to use vbCredits II deluxe for "get paid per thread". Members are allowed to request for payout anytime they like. How do I create the payout transaction as "Admin" to send them real-life payment which will deduct the amount from their "vbCredits currency total" as well.

Members have posted and made the money and its shown in their postbit but how does the Admin can make the payout transaction onto their accounts.

Looking for a solution, anybody can help ??

vBCredits II Deluxe v2.1.0 released!

After a long hiatus, I am proud to announce the immediate availability of vBCredits v2.1.0!

Many of the fixes in this version have been posted as patches or hotfixed to the pro version, but now finally merged together in a cohesive package and made available for lite as well. In fact, I am backdating this release to 6 months after the previous one, so that limited license holders from awhile back will be able to take advantage of these great improvements.

Improved Performance:
-Smarter transaction queueing and processing
-Additional caching and query simplification
-Separate pending transaction table
-InnoDB applied conditionally

Currency Popup:
-New ability to include links to specific actions (eg [Transfer])
-Revised wording, Amount field focus, and currency matching
-Fixed usernames with utf-8 characters
-Fixed missing security token error
-Flooding prevention fixes
-Disables on mobile theme

-Optional cron alternative for daily actions
-Memberlist template edit no longer required
-Implemented upload/download actions on vB3
-Implemented referral/welcome actions during promotions
-Revised post/thread awarding/editing/deleting scenarios
-Better compatibility with other currency addons
-Better action multiplier handling
-Narrow admincp transactions by action
-vB3 supports navbar link to Transactions
-Other style, wording tweaks and optimizations

-Alternating column colors on memberlist
-Errors during URL attachments
-Auto repairs broken vBCredits cache
-Rare database errors
-Restored missing display saving functionality
-Recalculation tool issues
-Saving transactions during AJAX calls
-Full vB3.6-8/4.0-2 support

-Consistent DBTech features, eg global branding free key
-Moved related files into credits folders
-Using google hosted jQuery library

I fixed so much, I hope I remembered to list everything! There's a good chance that issue that's been bugging you about vBCredits has just been taken care of Otherwise I look forward to taking a fresh look at it in light of this update.


You should disable vBCredits, upload the new files, import the product file, then re-enable it. This will cut down on me having to help you through disabling addons when sync issues prevent you from logging into your admincp. And also from alarming you about being unable to log into your admincp

If you have a large or busy site, you might consider turning off your forums during the upgrade to cut down on server strain. As part of the performance improvements, pending transactions are moved from the main transaction table to a pending table, which may take several minutes depending on the amount of transactions you have.

You should also revert any template edits you made to vBCredits templates, including from previous patches, as well as from your memberlist_bit template. If you bought branding free, your old plugin will still work, but you can switch to the branding free key if you want.

The next update should be here much sooner there's more to come, Enjoy!
I probably want my scripts to work on your site more than you do!

I currently have vBCredits installed (PixelFX version).
I want to have another credit system on my site where ppl can pay to obtain these credits only (not by posting, just pay for them). This product seems perfect for what I want to do. However, will this clash with the current vBCredits I have installed? Like, will it rewrite tables from the vBCredits I have installed by PixelFX? If so, what do I have to do to be able to install this product to not clash with the other vBCredits I have. Thank you.

Is there a way that I can make it so it creates tables/columns with a prefix or something that way I can use THIS Credits system and the one by PixelFX as well? Because, my goal is to be able to have Credits earned by posting, etc (with vBCredits by PixelFX), then have Credits earned by either paying money for them or converting the Credits earned by posting into the paid Credits (this credit system, vBCredits II Deluxe). I think that if I install this one, it will clash with the current vBCredits I have installed by PixelFX, which is why I ask if it is possible to change the names of tables/columns. Thanks

Why would you want to run both of them side-by-side?
