DBTech News

The big news this week is the official launch of our skinning division, and the release of our first skin - DragonByte MMO. This is an RPG/MMO themed skin that draws from the aesthetics of such recent and upcoming releases as Diablo III and Guild Wars 2 - it's the perfect skin for anyone running a gaming, RPG or MMO forum and looks amazing. You can test it here on DragonByte Tech by choosing the "DragonByte MMO" skin from the dropdown. It's for sale for $35 for a year license, and $65 for a lifetime license. The skin is technically a beta and there may be changes over the next week or two based on feedback.

In other news vBDonate, the latest mod from @Ozzy47 that is currently in closed beta, was updated today and has some great new features, including Automatic verificiation meaning donations that are successful will be checked and verified by paypal - no manual intervention required. You can read all about the update here.

We are also happy to announce that @Dylan 's secret mod is DragonByte Gallery - a fully features photo gallery mod, which should be on DBTech in the next week, and in an open beta shortly afterwards. Below is a screenshot of it running on the new DragonByte MMO skin - two for one image awesomeness!

Lastly, thanks to everyone who has voted for us in May's vbulletin.org Mod of the Month contest. Our vBSignatures mod is still in the lead, but only just - the fantastic pinterest minimod by BOP5 is right on our heels with 20 votes to our 23! A huge thank you to everyone who votes for our mods, and PLEASE use your vote in these contests - even if it's for someone else's mod - it means a lot to the coders involved.

Decado's Corner

@the-danzor pulled off a winner with this skin IMO, it looks incredible, even with DBTech running a billion mods - something which often makes stylised skins look really bad. Show your support and grab his skin, available for the incredible price of $35 for a year of updates and support - less with any bulk/loyalty discount. Encourage him to create more awesome skins by telling him how handsome he is and giving him money!

Got my hands on an almost-finished version of DragonByte Gallery and me and the guys gave Dylan a long list of features to make it even more awesome. He took them ALL and went "sure, you'll have them next week." The guy is a champ.

We moved our team chats over to Skype from MSN to involve the people using macs and it's actually been a really easy transition. The permanent groups feature of skype is actually really solid and i'd recommend it to anyone with a clan, guild or whatever - anything that needs to keep a group of people connected.

I need some feedback from you regular customers (especially Global Branding Free License owners) - The skins have branding but it's unlikely we can include them in the global branding free license because of the way the contracts are set up. My current thinking is to create a new GBF license for skins, but perhaps give it to the current GBF license holders for free as a thank you for being early adopters? Feedback is welcome

Oh if any of you play Diablo 3 give me a PM or whatever with your blizzard names - especially if you play on EU servers =). Dunno how much i'll be playing in the next week or so since I go on holiday on monday, but it'll be cool to hang out with some of you outside of the confines of DBTech!

As always I look forward to your questions, comments and feedback - so don't be shy!

Thanks for reading,

Iain & The DBTech Team

    1) first skin - DragonByte MMO is in my cart
    2) DragonByte Gallery will be in my wish-list (reason for it (and the next mods that are coming out between now & +- 2 months) being on the wish-list: Ordered a new Supper PC (which I only will use to Game & Movie creating projects).
    3) feedback from you regular customers (especially Global Branding Free License owners): not a bad idea for a "new GBF license for skins". "give it to the current GBF license holders for free as a thank you for being early adopters" sounds great (especially this & the next 2 months for me, but will give later a extra (planned, in case you give it for free to those early adopters) donation when I can afford it).

    4) From this moment, I'm on hold to buy anything new (inclusive games, ...).

    Friendly greetings,
    Valcav

    First of all vBDonate is going to be the best donation plugin made for vBulletin.
    Second, oh my god, finally a vBgallery? Did Christmas come early this year? This is a plugin I always wanted because I have members posting thousands of pictures...but it threads instead of a nice modification section.

    I think it has alot to live upto papa bear as I'm sure IceWolf would agree,But if it is on par with something already unsupported,It's the one I'll be going for..Personally I have to take my hat off to DW...The new modification will be the biggest thing not only to hit vb but will rock the standalone arcade scripts out there..

    Please Please Please make DragonByte Gallery better than PhotoPost vbGallery! They haven't updated it in a long time, CKeditor doesn't work at all, and there's a lot of sloppy things going on code wise that don't make any sense. Activity stream support? vbSEO support? Photo contest support? Oh, please think about an importer for vbGallery as well!
