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.

As for the previous question, it was apparently a custom made template:

Displays the 10 richest vbc users on forum home. (custom made)
That old addon should still work if you kept the default Credits currency (even if you renamed it, as long as the column was kept as credits).

As for the memberlist, can you send me an admin login with style permissions?

There is one in vbshop

That is a pro feature for any event.

You can use vbcredits with any third party addon with a custom points option, otherwise you can charge for any action in vbcredits itself (such as for posting)

Hopefully a stupid question here, Darkwaltz.

I run a forum where I want all currency additions to be made by the moderators. Does vBcredits II support this type of transfer? If so, how do I do it?

Free support has lower priority than the pro support - I check that daily whereas this one weekly.

Yes, all automatic credits can be disabled in favor of strictly adjustments/donations by staff. You would set up events using the Adjust or Donate actions, and your staff utilize it by clicking the displayed credits displayed anywhere on your site on the currency popup that appears.

any chance to add a feature to the postbit of members for admin (or anyone with points admin access) to give members points straight from the post?

I award members extra points for excellent threads, and it would be a lot faster if I could just get a popup from the postbit to add points.

(I'd even be happy if it was only pro version, would make me finally buy it )

The mod is working fine on my 4.0.8 installation.

The only thing is that the credits are not calculated for attachments uploaded. Is anybody having this issue?

You can integrate/import automatically from kbank via the multiple currency integration tool Simply add a new currency and choose kbank from the dropdown to integrate (if you wanted to keep kbank), or edit an existing currency and choose kbank from the bottom of the page to transfer (if you wanted to get rid of kbank). Let me know if you have any trouble.

Yes, anywhere credits are shown, you can click it to open up the currency popup. From there you can initiate transfers/donations (and in the pro version, redemptions and purchases)

There were reports of issues using the flash uploader - try doing it with the "basic" method

Questions from a client who I installed this mod for:

1. Infractions
I tried to set this up so that a member will lose 20 credits when I give them an infraction.

vBCredits II Deluxe > Activity Amounts Configuration > Infraction > "Charge" ticked and 20 filled in for "Amount"

However, this does not seem to be working, i.e. members are not losing 20 credits when I give them the infraction.


2. Thanks
I changed our Thanks mod settings so that when someone is given a "Thanks" they are also given reputation.

ACP > Post Thanks > Post Thanks Settings > Reputation > Set how many reputaion a user should get if he gets thanked. Set to '0' to disable - set to 1

When a member receives rep they should get credits
vBCredits II Deluxe > Activity Amounts Configuration > Amount > 2

However, this doesn't seem to result in users getting credits when they are given Thanks or Reputation directly - can you please look into that?
Any suggestions?

Thanks!
