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.

whoops, yep i copied it from the vb4 thread all of those should work the same on vb3.8 now, but changed it nonetheless. Bonus - when/if you upgrade to vb4, you dont need to upgrade to the vb4 flavor of vbcredits II

Yes, as long as you keep the default credits currency. Actionsets that integrate with the old vbc1 addons are on their way

How many times is it displaying? If you edit and save each display, the errors should go away. I thought I had that taken care of

You gain many new actions, more ways to use them (like multipliers and limits), multiple currencies, and everything in that mini faq at the top of the description. You lose bank interest and lottery, which has been removed for addon status in the future.

Doesn't the "Deluxe" version of a product, usually mean more features, rather than less? hehe.

The lottery/bank was the main reason I installed VBCredits, so it's a little odd to see it removed.

And by addons, do you mean paid addons?

=) The Deluxe version is much more feature filled than the standard vBCredits II.

There are no plans to make any addons "paid" addons - though thats not set in stone, i'd be very surprised if it was the case =). Likely those features will be added in future updates (though perhaps not to the Lite version)

I'm on 3.8.4 and I'm getting this error after what appears to be a smooth installation:

Invalid SQL:
SELECT SUM(ABS(credits_saved)) AS sum FROM vbuser;

MySQL Error : Unknown column 'credits_saved' in 'field list'
Error Number : 1054

On vB3.8 all addons for vBCredits 1.x should still work so long as the default currency (credits) remains.

Highlights:
Improved currency popup with username suggest
Faster donations with additional messages
One-way fees chargeable on currency events

See all, your own, or someone else's transactions
Ability to process all transactions in realtime
Over 15 more fixes, improvements, and optimizations!

Coming up in the next version: purchasing credits with PayPal+(pro), and redemption codes!
In the interim we will be focusing on integrations with many other addons, now that everyone will be happy with the core.
