by, 8th October 2013 at 15:25 (2141 Views)
This week, we have a brand new FREE mod called Twitch.tv Integration, a progress update for DragonByte SEO and Beta 4 of DragonByte Classifieds!
Progress is being made on DragonByte SEO, and the interest in the Closed Beta seems to have no end! For the record, we haven't responded to any PMs yet as we'll be comparing notes with the rest of the team before selecting testers once the Closed Beta is actually due to begin. Don't worry, you're all still under consideration!
Currently, we're working on Alpha 1 which we'll be putting up on DBTech. Alpha 1 is around 99% feature complete, but there's still a lot of testing to go through before we're ready for a public display.
If you're interested in a Closed Beta spot - keep in mind that it may be a few weeks until we have Beta 1 ready - feel free to send @Belazor a PM.
As with Classifieds: Please do be aware that you will not receive a free version of the mod, so please do not apply if you do not intend to purchase the full version after the Closed Beta test ends. You will, however, receive a discount on the full version
The retail price is expected to be $200. Closed beta testers who actively participate in the Beta can expect to pay $100 when the Gold version is released.
Twitch.Tv Integration v1.0.0 has been released, completely FREE! This is a new mod that allows you to set up a directory of channels that you wish to promote. Optionally, you can allow users to add their own channels to the directory, giving their streams more exposure than in the Twitch.tv directory.
The directory itself supports Live Preview (refreshed every 5 minutes if someone browses the directory), or it can display the channel's offline image (if one is configured).
You can also see detailed information regarding each channel; the user who owns it (if an owner is configured), the last game they streamed (or are currently streaming), the title of their last stream (or current stream), and their last online time (since installing the mod).
With direct links to the channel's Twitch.Tv page, following a stream or a channel is very easy. If you run a gaming forum, or have a large population of live streamers on your forum, this mod is an ideal way of increasing the exposure of your members' channels and boost their viewer base.
Twitch.tv Integration is available for vBulletin 4.x, completely FREE!
DragonByte Classifieds v1.0.0 Beta 4 (Closed Beta) has been released! This release adds the ability to re-list expired listings, as well as fixing over two dozen bugs reported by our dedicated Closed Beta tester team.
For those of you just joining us, here's a quick recap of what DragonByte Classifieds is all about:
DragonByte Classifieds is a highly advanced Classifieds system that lets you or your members sell physical items for real money using advanced AJAX features to reduce page loads and provide a real auction-like feel to your forum.
If you're not running an auction site, you can take advantage of highly configurable inventory features to create a store front for physical goods using "buy-it-now" functionality with stock support.
With multiple other features like the ability for sellers to set shipping costs, the ability for sellers to restrict what countries they wish to ship to and the ability for buyers to set their preferred addresses, the system is perfect for any forum interested in the selling of goods for real money.
We are still accepting Closed Beta tester applications, so if you're interested, send a PM to either @Mokonzi or @Belazor and we'll get back to you.
Closed Beta testers will be able to help shape the initial release version of the mod, as well as iron out the bugs, so please do participate if you're interested in running the final version on your site.
Please do be aware that you will not receive a free version of the mod, so please do not apply if you do not intend to purchase the full version after the Closed Beta test ends. You will, however, receive a discount on the full version

Hey hey, it's everyones favorite Scotsman here taking the reins from Fillip for another Decado's Corner. First of all, I want to say a big thank you to everyone who voted on last months vB.org MOTM contest and gave DBTech our record breaking TENTH mod of the month win. This month our very own @Ozzy47 has 4 of his own fantastic minimods up for nomination against a very strong effort from Joe/BOP5, be sure to go and vote for your favorite!
This coming week is going to be a busy one for me, i'm going to be doing an audit of our support performance. I'm going to go through every thread forom the last 2 months or so and check that they were answered in a timely and helpful manner and such. If you have any concerns or input about our support performance feel free to leave a comment or PM me.
On a more personal note I've been playing a lot of GTA Online this past week. Well, I've been playing when the servers are stable! I play on the xBox 360, feel free to add me, gamertag Decado Ice.
Beyond that Fillip, Dylan and I were all playing some War of the Vikings Alpha on steam tonight, it looks set to be a damn fun game. We also intended to try out a Battlefield 4 beta, but my computer disliked the Nvidia GFX card driver update and then 26 windows updates had to install. That put an end to that.
One last thing; I want your input on what should be on special next week, guys. Do you want to see a loyalty point increase? Some bundles with some of our new and/or more obscure mods with huge 40% discounts? Is there a specific mod you'd like to see have a 20% discount? Let me know and I'll see what I can do next week.
If you're worried about buying something and missing out on a discount, don't be! If you buy a mod this week that's discounted next week, you can PM @Belazor and he will credit you with the difference in DBTech points, meaning you never lose out!
If you're a Twitch.tv user, enjoy the new mod this week, it's a great one. Thanks for reading as always, and I look forward to your comments below.
