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.

Like VSA Online countup modification . VSA OCM Hide buttons too .

Thank You !
we are using vbcredits with the latest version of vbulletin, and ckeditor is not affected; if you disable vbcredits, does the problem go away?

This is confirmed; unfortunately, I am so far unable to figure out why that particular username changes encoding in the middle of the script and causes it to become unfindable.

1. members earn credits for posting
2. members earn credits for opening a topic
3. they can buy avatars (I designed 45 avatars) with it

would this be possible? if not, what could you recommend me?

How do you install these kind of mods?


Check out vBShop here at vborg, though the first two are handled by vBCredits II here.

It definitely will
I probably want my scripts to work on your site more than you do!

Is there a feature where members have to pay credits to view post, or something like this planned?

i have a problem with this, whenever a user creates a thread/post they get points.
But then when they "edit" the points are added again

so i have a dozen or so members abusing this glitch

is there any fix?

Everything was working fine then I started receiving this database error everytime I enable the plugin and view a thread

Invalid SQL:
SELECT t.* FROM credits_transaction AS t LEFT JOIN credits_event AS e ON (t.eventid = e.eventid) WHERE t.userid = 1 AND t.status = 0 AND t.timestamp <= 1310730072 ORDER BY t.transactionid ASC LIMIT 1;

MySQL Error : Table '***.credits_transaction' doesn't exist
Error Number : 1146

I have poked around in this thread, but could not find an answer to some of my questions. I hope someone can answer these without too much inconvenience.

1. Are there any plans to add CMS comments as an action? I would like my members to get points for posting article comments.

2. Is there a way to add an image for the currency? I'd like a little symbol next to the currency in the postbit.

3. I get charged far too much to edit a post. I often get charged 5 credits to edit a post I only earned 1 credit posting. I don't want my members feeling like they cant edit their posts, but I've searched and searched and have not found a "reversal" or "edit" action to change the settings.

I would buy pro for all these features I listed.

1. Miss buruku Ill add my support for this feature Wait I haven't checked but if they post inside the article forum it should give credit, I don't know if it does via the CMS side. Its a great mod and you will be happy with the pro version.

the thing I would really like to see it an action for having there post be promoted to an article.
but more than anything is the importance of having a meaningful purpose for the credits to be spent on. Like the arcade !

2. IDK how but it seems like a simple proposition and a template edit but it could displace something else.

3. it should be the two targets in this screen shot. unless you messed with the advanced settings. I am unsure what the free version looks like.

rootsxrocks, thank you SO much for answering #3 for me. I can't believe how long I tried and couldn't figure out something so simple.

Yes, perhaps a template edit will allow me to put in a currency image, though I sure wish they would create an option for it.

I just tried to install the mod onto my site and ran into an error. I uploaded all the files to the correct folders and created the new plugins folder as well. The error I am receiving is below on the import of the xml.

I created another currency called "GP". After posting a bit and earning more of these "GP" I wanted to remove them (reset them), so I went into "Currency" in my account and I tried doing 'take'. It seems it is only possible for the default "Credit" points/coins. How do I enable/allow it to be for the new "GP" coins as well?

(Only "credits" is shown on the right side, not the "GP")
