IP.Board Version 2

40 posts in this topic

Hello,

I really need to find IP.Board 2 to purchase. Theres a modification I want to use (IBProBattle) but it's not compatible with IP.Board 3.

Does anyone know where I can get a copy of IP.Board 2?

If you purchase IP.Board, you will automatically get the ability to download IPB 2.3.6. However, it is completely unsupported and EOL. It will not get feature upgrades, and I believe it will even stop receiving security updates in the near future.

Yes, purchase of an IP.Board license includes the download for 3.1 and an archival version of 2.3.6
However, as Mat warned, it is entirely unsupported and no longer maintained. This means you will not be able to get support or maintenance for it in any way.

Just to clarify one point - you get access to both versions (at this moment in time), however you may only run one installation at any given moment. That means you can download either or both versions, but can only run one live at a time.

Just to make sure...

If I purchase a license, I can download/ run 2.3.6 and have the ability to download/ upgrade version 3 at some later point?

Yes, you can use the upgrade script in 3.x to upgrade from 2.3.6 at a later date. However you skin and any modifications you make will be lost.

Does it matter how long after, or is it a lifetime license?

I understand completely. Thanks! Most people don't realize that.


What is the modification that you want?



IBProBattle. If this modification worked with IP.Board 3, I wouldn't hesitate one bit.

The battle does not work with 3, nor does the army. Both of those rpg systems are why I am still running ipb 2.
I did see that an upgrade to the battle may be completed by a modder named Bronx but I think he is going to charge for it.

Thank you for the information, Amy T. I'm glad you understand where I'm coming from. The IBProBattle mod is awesome! If Bronx completes an upgrade for this modification that makes it compatible with IP.Board 3, I most definitely pay for it. Do you have a link or any contact information for Bronx?

Thanks again everyone!

Just incase that you need to know is that you need to keep on paying the renewal fees to gain access to download v3 or you can just download the new copy now and keep it that is for you to save money if you do not wish to pay the renewal fees IF you decide not to pay and 6 months later you wanted to use v3

You are allowed to run the software indefinitely under the current license, however you will lose access to the client area if your license expires. You can either

1) Download both versions now, so you have both in case you decide to upgrade later
or
2) Keep your license active and/or pay the $25 renewal fee whenever you decide you are ready to upgrade your forum software

Thank you, bfarber.

I'm still awaiting a response from someone regarding the IBProBattle modification?

Hopefully I'll hear back from that person soon, as it will GREATLY expedite my decision.

ND, I have about half of the ACP side of ibProBattle done. And my coding partner is working on the public side. So there is a version for IPB3 coming. I cant give a definite timeline but we are working on it daily. You can PM with any questions about the mod if you'd like.
