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.

Since this is the case, does anyone know if it's possible to roll back to the previous version without damaging anything?

This fixes the cron update and allows manually processing of updating counters.

Random question DragonByte or anyone else.

When I first installed vBcredits, it allowed me to transfer/donate credits VIA popup by clicking the credit link in the postbit. Now clicking the link is linking me directly to credit.php. Any idea on how to restore the popup, as that was mighty convenient?

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like you have old edited vbcredits templates that you should revert.

Yeah I have it set for 100 welcome credits, and new users are starting out with 200. The only other thing that gives out 100 credits is birthdays.

Also is there a way to reset EVERYONE's credits to a certain amount?

Hello!

Please teach me with this error after I had updated to vBulletin v4.2.0 Patch Level 3.
Error: Fatal error: Class 'VBCREDITS' not found in credits admin.php on line 67

Beside: I have full permission in my forum, but when click on any link to VB Credit, it always show me that You do not have Permission to acess, please go Administrator Permission to add permission

Thank to ask soon!

Any idea?

I think I'm failing to understand exactly what this hack is used for. From what I can tell, it seems to be a way to generate a virtual currency used only in the forum to which it is installed. As it seems to be a highly popular hack, I'm interested in knowing a bit more about it.

Can this hack be used to earn money for the webmaster, or is it simply a "fun" thing for the forum?
