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.

Alright, I got the recalculating down. The reason why nothing I was doing was working was because I disabled the actionset thinking it was a part of the old vbcredits.

The actual mod is labeled as "DB Tech:...", whereas the actionset is labeled as just "vbcredits..."

If I can make a recommendation it would be to provide us with a video tutorial on how to set up the mod. It could save me HOURS of trying to figure this out on my own. There are programs like screencast that record what you do on your computer's screen and allow you to automatically post it to youtube from there.

Other than that, I'm still waiting to get the mess from vbcredits.com cleaned up. I'd also like to see an answer to this post.

Hey guys,

I already had vBookie installed and after I installed this mod, together with the vBookie "fix", I get the following error when trying to post a new vBookie event:

Database error in vBulletin 4.0.8:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Can anyone help me with this problem as soon as possible?
Thank you kindly in advance!

Regards,

Bozza

UPDTATE: I found my problem. "Give to the Poor" was set on 50 in vBookie settings but I didn't create a new event for it @ vBCredits. :-)

No. It won't work. Sadly, I have tried and tried to get that mod updated. No pressure Dark...

Things are NOT looking good on 4.1 beta. Not that I expect the author to have it working for a beta...Just use this as a warning.

This is the error I see when trying to go to credits.php.

Other than that everything else seems to be working. Credits are taken and awarded with vbookie. Thank god I tested 4.1 on a test site though...I'm not making the same mistake I made with the 3.8 -> 4.0 transition.

Here is the piece of code and my attempt to plug it in.

As for the actions...man, I'm really confused on how to set each of them up. It's different from what I did with vbcredits I. I'm going to have to sit down and really take my time to figure this out.
Those old links and stuff will no longer work. If you are trying to modify the way that displays, there are official methods with template hooks and overwriting templates instead of template edits Let me know if you need that.

v2.0.0 has merged the vbulletin actionset with the main addon. I am preparing the lite version this weekend (the pro one is available now)

I am considering a tutorial and started one... but its a lot harder than youd think :-/
v2.0.0 also cleans up from the old addons, and the pro version merges the old pro addons and cleans those up too.

I am working on integrations the rest of the year, and upgrading the vbookie one is top of the list.

All of the front-end ones should be phrased, but the admincp is only partially right now.

That error leads me to think you arent talking about my old pro addon. Whats the link to what you are trying to use? The pro version of v2.0.0 now contains charge bbcode support

I am working on integrations for the rest of the year, and finally finishing this one is at the top of the list.

I just tried installing v2.0.0 on vb4.1 gold, and no issues at all, especially on that page.

Thanks, it has been reported before and I am still looking for a solution. The file should still have been accepted correctly though.

You could either go to the currency manager in vbcredits and import the vbshop currencies for use in vbcredits, or pick the column from an existing currency displayed under Field in the currency manager. If you kept the default Credits, it should be "credits" for column, "user" for table.
