PASSWORD FOR FILES : see the HELP/FAQ section
DEAD DOWNLOAD LINKS : If you find any dead links, ask in the DollarVR Chat and we will do what we can to post new links.
ok, so ..in the last few days we have been severed with a DMCA Takedown notice regarding a few files we have linked to…. hense NO updated files or new releases, we really really want to tell them to FUCK OFF but we actually can’t or they will just repo our domain name from us. pretty much leaving us pissing in the wind.
Due to this we’ve had a lot of people skrurring like rats on a sinking ship and are now distancing themselves from us (fucking low life little scum sucking fucking retards who i personally hope get hit by the next car they see)
SO, being calm .. we have a few obstacles in front of us :
- encrypting the servers data so there are absolutely no personal data leaks (completed)
- domain name shut down (there not shutting down the server because we own it)
- we currently have no APK sources .. not fully true, we just don’t have patchers who will work with us ATM
- possible domain name change – .org, .net, .biz (there are plenty)
- running out of admins (way more time and effort for the rest of us, possible slow updates)
We aint going nowhere, just give us a little bit of time to get our shit together, lock a few things down, pull our pants back up and we will see you soon
HAPPY HOLIDAYS & TRIALS
Some of the admin wanted me to wish you ALL a Merry Christmas ( even though its now over .. :P) so …..
I was almost certain that I’ve warned you ALL about the Oculus game trails, I can’t find it below so I guess I forgot, my bad, i’m sorry.
DO NOT GET FREE TRAILS OF ANY GAMES or APPS ON THE OCULUS/META STORE
if you do NO patch apks will work and you have to purchase the game at full price to play it. when you download and play a trail version (it is the FULL GAME download) Oculus puts a hidden file/folder somewhere on your headset (a token) which tells the game that you have played it for XX amount of time and you have to purchase the game in order to remove the file.
TRUST ME, the patcher’s have no inclination or time to search for this hidden files/folder as it’s located in the android source code folder somewhere, even a format of your headset will not work.
We have decided to end the FREE trial period in the NEW YEAR (day sub) , we have looked at the data and there is actually NO benefit for us doing in, it seems 90% of new subs are just using different emails but on the same IP’s (idioTs) (we have allowed for VPN IPs) .. to be honest we’ve said it before we are not like other servers, we don’t need to pay $$$$ each month for hosting, we own our own server, we only have to pay running costs (etc) and so far the ads on the site are covering that, the money we get from new subs is going straight to new APKS,.
The downside of it is monthly giveaways might be smaller than we would like BUT we will still run them because, what APK you might have, someone else won’t have.
ANYWAY heads up
we have update the logins to 7, we unfortunately didn’t take into account that logging in with, Firefox, chrome, safari, IE, etc count as 1 login each.
META FIX & SECURITY UPDATE
META has now fixed the broken developer mode issue with a firmware update, if you were affected like one of our admins then please update to the latest firmware.
Our security software has alerted us to possible account sharing on multiple accounts, we ask you that you DO NOT share your login details with anyone, as a result we have implemented a 2 device login MAX, what this means is that you can only login from 2 devices at once (Mobile Phone / PC), after that you will get an error message telling you to log out of another device before being able to login on your current device. (Laptop / Tablet ) So if you have shared your account, looks like you wont be getting it back. We are actively monitoring the situation and we may update it to 1 device only in the future.
DEVELOPER MODE ISSUES
Hi all, it seems for many users that developer mode is broken. This is a known issue on the Meta side and it happened with v47 system update. So without developer mode, we can’t use SideQuest, Meta Quest Developer Hub, ADBLink, ADB commands, Bugjaeger and so on… So, for affected people, they can’t side load, nor use the above apps and can’t enable the ADB service on their Quest to play QGO.
We need to wait for a fix from Meta.
Due to the handful of idiots (see blow post) we have now changed the way we deliver new updates, in stead of giving you 12+ download links, you will now get 1 (yes 1) direct download link, If this link fails for any reason we will be shutting down the server and call it quits.
NOTE: due to the added unnecessary security we feel we have had to implement the start of any download might take a minute to start, don’t blame us (some of us really don’t care anymore). OLD file are not effected.
We have just released the link for Iron man and within 30 minutes there has been a hell of a lot of downloads, more than usual and more than expected when we cross reference it with actual web traffic for that period, we have ask in the past to stop linking directly to our files and posting our links on other website. We have now started to implement passwords for you to even access the downloads, the passwords will be added to posts and will be changed at random intervals.
DOWNLOAD, UNPACK, REPACK, UPLOAD AND MAKE YOUR OWN LINK AND SHARE
STOP LINKING DIRECTLY TO OUR FILES
SALE ENDS, FREE ACCOUNTS & BAN LISTS
The 50% OFF sale has now ended, if you managed to grab a deal then good and thank you for your support, we may bring it back again Christmas (who knows).
FREE subscriptions (daily) have now been revamped to a 24 hour one off free trial, we felt it was unfair for you guys/gals (the paying subscribers) if any member could just keep claiming a FREE subscription and downloading what every and whenever (Quest store ONLY) they liked on a daily basis. We have been trying to combat this by periodically opening and closing the FREE subscriptions, unfortunately it’s not a 100% complete fix but hopefully our software which has now been updated and is working 100% will now start banning duplicate IP address’s and sequential email address’s.
PLEASE NOTE: Major server maintenance is happening tomorrow and the site might / will be down or inaccessible for long periods of time tomorrow. please also note if the site is in “maintenance mode” you can still login via the padlock.
SIDE NOTE: I have been assured that the Halloween Giveaway will be drawn before any server maintenance.
We have upcoming general sever maintenance scheduled for the Tuesday 1st November, we are going to take this time to update some needed core files, apply security patches and a general clean up, please be aware we might break the site for a significant amount of time (worst case scenario – best case you wont even notice any downtime).
NEW SOURCES & GIVEAWAY
WOW October already, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas & then New Year.. this year has gone so fast…
ok, let me get back to it… We have started to add new sources into the rotation of updates and new downloads, this is basically so we can get the APK’s out to you guys as fast as possible. As soon as our usual reliable sources have patched the files we will update the post with the new files.
A WORD OF WARNING : In the past we have seen and been made aware of some files that have come from Chinese patching sites containing malware, Trojans, rootkits, even viruses .. so even though we run ALL files through our “Malwarebytes” software before we upload, we can not guarantee the files are 100% clean, if your AV software finds anything, always go on the side of caution and delete the files (wait for the next round of updates).
The Admin that runs the giveaways is on holiday until later today I think, so the winner will be randomly drawn tomorrow. Sorry for the inconvenience BUT we all need a holiday at some point.
POLL RESULTS, DRIVE UPDATE & DOWNTIME
Might as well go in order (or not).. haha ..
server downtime is expected over the next couple of weeks, this will be periodic so we can update the servers php build (8.1) to the latest (fastest) version, downside is our anti theft software doesn’t officially support php8.1 so we need to do it in incremental steps to make sure it works correctly. Hmmm – wonder what will break this time .. 😋😋
The dedicated Gdrive seems to handling well so far so good, if anyone has any issues with “quota reached” error let the chatbox admin know and we will get the right people onto it.
I’m absolutely bewildered by this next one..
The results are in and it makes absolutely no difference to the way the top admins have decided how long new FREE members have to wait to download any new Quest Store Games.
They opted for 14 days, even though the result was a clear 7 days, I personally don’t care…. I don’t have to wait and if your reading this then you don’t either.
Quick update to keep you all in the loop (so to speak)
FREE Subs .. There here to stay (wish people would make up there minds).
GDrive – googledrive has now been added to the download server list, so in theory all files added from today will not need there links refreshed and it should be the fastest download link.
FREE, RULES & A TELLING OFF
FREE Daily subscription are back, some has done a deal somewhere (above my pay grade – so to speak) .. as far as I’m aware this is not a permanent fixture but I also have no idea how long it will be FREE for.
A TELLING OFF
The frontend DVR_Admin (chatbox) has been told off for actually helping & not following the rules (RULES will follow) .. Myself and the frontend admin have a little disagreement going on (😲) .. so hahhhhaahha ..twat.
OK so as I was just about to start typing this news update out, I got a DM “please inform members of the rules”
SO, please make sure you are aware of the site RULES (yes you did agree to them when you signed up) the rules can be found HERE or on the login tab at the top of the screen.
OK now for the example (chatwall):
If you don’t read the RULES and you do what user “MAKS” did then you will be BANNED from the chat wall and be demoted from a lifetime member to a monthly member, let me explain if I can..
EVERYONE that was was upgraded for FREE to a LIFETIME member — your account is NOT 100% safe, because you’ve been given a free upgrade you can be downgraded if you break the RULES — again read the RULES
For EVERYONE else that has paid to become a lifetime member (we thank you) if you break the CHATBOX RULES you will either be kicked or banned from the chat BUT your account will still be safe…. brake any other rules and then not so much.
SO in conclusion “-=*=- DollarVR CHAT -=*=- ONLY ONE RULE : SILLY QUESTIONS WILL GET YOU KICKED ” — may need to be update to “READ THE RULES BEFORE POSTING“
SERVER MAINTENANCE / DOWNTIME
Essential server maintenance will take place over this weekend, we have no ETA on how long it will take, the server ran an auto routine server update and somehow managed to restarted it’s self before it was 100% completed and now some critical functions have stopped working, so it needs to be fixed ASAP.
We have successfully updated the server to the latest OS build, the server should now be more stable (fast) and more secure, it has taken a little bit longer than we wanted but as with everything you fix one problem and 10 errors popup up, thankfully we have fixed them ALL.
DOWNTIME, WINNER, PCVR, SUBSCRIPTION
OK, I’m back from my holidays (not refreshed), I need a holiday to get over my booze fuelled holiday. anyway lets catch up.
DOWNTIME (max 10 minutes) is expected today (hopefully you won’t notice), there is a slight problem with the server config although it’s not major, any messing with the servers main core files and then restarting the server is a bit of pot luck, if the code is wrong it will break the server and if the server fails to boot, someone will have to physically go out to where the server is located and fix it on site. so yea no big deal. 😂🤣😭🤣🤣
WINNER!!! – Congrats to @VRGAMER@ you won the Monthly Giveaway (sorry forgotten what it was but you can find out at the top of the screen) check you email for the META redeem code.
PCVR – Sad news the admin that was in charge of the PCVR section has gone on to do other things and has no time to update that section, we are currently looking for a new admin (please don’t apply, we have other channels).
SUBSCRIPTION – I’ve been on holiday so you will have to forgive me on this one, as far as I can gather the price for subscriptions has been fluctuating, no one can agree on a set price.
The YEARLY subscription price some how can’t be agree on (if you looking then grab it now), some say leave it as it is, some say it should be more expensive. I say grab the LIFETIME sub, it’s currently 50% OFF.
OHH NO, PRIVACY & SERVER UPDATE
Seems some of our members want to post our release on open forums .. hint .. don’t use the same username on both sites……idiots ((HAHAHAHAHA)).
OK fun’s over .. listen we have no problem with you sharing what you have downloaded, once you’ve download anything it becomes yours and you can do what the hell you like with it..
- DO NOT post openly post direct links to our files, download our files and upload your own, DON’T be CUNT.
- DO NOT post any of our files we have our name in them… so any splash screens or titles.
just so we can piss off everyone that wants to steel our links for there own (internet cred is so stupid, you’ll be found out in the end and you’ll be left holding your dick in your hand when some outs you), we have start to tag our site name in RANDOM files – de-ja-vu (SO yep check ALL files before you start posting them on sub-reddits, discord, BBforums, IRC & newsgroups (wow apparently they do still exist).
This news post/page is now private and only available to DollarVR subscribers, I’m not entirely sure why it was ever made for public consumption, but well done to the admin that grew a pair. joke!!
I received an email this morning regarding this issue, we were going for a G***** (popular server) but it keeps blocking the downloads after a certain bandwidth allowance is exceeded, there is a work around but it requires every single user to have an account with them, which to be fair in’t practical.
The guys/gals haven’t given up just yet, there may be some API tricks that can be used but as always I will keep you in the loop.
PRIVATE SITE + DEDICATED SERVER
Well that didn’t take’m long to do, if you haven’t already figured it out, we are now a private site, Every “FREE Member” account is still valid, so you do NOT have to rejoin, you just need to purchase a subscription package to continue to download (consider that your TRIAL period). – I literally had that wrote down, I was told this MUST go into the news post. 😛
I can now update on why the step was taken (nothing to do with monetary value) . It was to do with opening the can of worms that is “FREE membership” – I mean you can read further down this page to when we were all infighting about opening up the site to “FREE membership” – I hold my hands up, I was well off the mark and wrong, I voted to open up the site to the world – I will eat my humble pie.
OK, the “FREE Membership” originally worked well to start with but then when t*ts up when we started to constantly get probed by hacker (making free accounts and trying to find access points via there free accounts) I think at one point we had over 250,000 firewall blocks in a month (thank you ********** for you help in blocking these idiot).
Another reason was you simply can’t answer everyone with “how do I ……” , “it wont work ..”, “I can’t do..”, “I’m to ignorant to read the HELP/FAQ section”. – seems everyone does want EVERYTHING for NOTHING.
The pricing structure for membership has been….. well restructured (not bad prices, not great but that’s beyond and above my pay grade ($0)).
A new dedicated download server is in the works and should be all set up by the end of the month (the guys are still working some stuff out to keep it as secure as humanly possible) – we do NOT want a repeat of the last server shutting down due to idiots.
FREE ACCOUNTS CHATTER + OTHER NEWS
There’s a lot & lots of chatter at the moment from behind the scenes here and as always I like to keep you all updated, FREE Account may soon become obsolete (I’m speculating now but I think there will not be an upgrade for free members like last time) and possibly being replaced with some sort of Trail membership, there is also chatter of an bi-annual membership being introduced (no more info on this at the moment), there is also a lot of chatter on a new payment gateway being added so everything is done in-house and I’m presuming (again) that there will be some sort of a pricing reshuffle to accommodate the new membership options.
If I’m putting this all together correctly, this all sounds like we might be going back to a private site again. 😮😮
As always, when I find out more I will update you all.
Seems every admin and backroom staff have now been granted access to the ChatBox’s kick & ban controls, this is going to end badly – So i would implore you all to read the RULES (located on the login menu) and read the HELP/FAQ section, I know some of these admins personally and some are ruthless.
MEMBERSHIP ADJUSTMENTS & CHAT BOX
Membership have have now been adjusted, good news for everyone that took the 50% reduction in “LIFETIME Membership” see below for the new prices. FREE Membership has now dramatically dropped from 24 HOURS to just 30 MINUTES (Dammmmmmn)
PLEASE NOTE: There are only a limited number of DAILY, WEEKLY & MONTH Subscription on offer, once they are gone they WILL NOT be replenished until the following WEEK or MONTH.
It appears our main front end site admin (chatbox, I’m not going call him/her customer service but the admin who passes all the relevant stuff along to the right people), is currently feeling a little bit annoyed…..
NOTE: We have now changed the chat box header and replaced it with a rule, please abide by that rule, it’s not a difficult rule but it is a rule and it WILL be enforced, if you do unfortunately get banned then you will only have to wait 1440000000 Minutes (2739.72602 Years)
MEMBERSHIP RESTRUCTURE & NEW QUEST POSTS
Will be implementing a new membership structure over the coming days (might even be today, I’m personally not sure), currently there are only 2 memberships on offer (FREE and PRIVATE) this will now change and there will be 5 membership on offer (FREE, DAILY, WEEKLY, MONTHLY & LIFETIME) and varying in price.
DAILY Membership has been disabled while we work on it.
FREE Membership has been downgrade to 24 Hours access ( you can renew after that, just login & then head over to the registration page and re-register for a FREE account, seems the higher ups want you to be inconvenienced )
PLEASE NOTE: If you currently hold a PRIVATE Membership account then good news! you have been automatically upgraded to a LIFETIME membership free of charge.
NEW QUEST POSTS
ALL QUEST STORE NEW RELEASES have been adjusted, FREE, DAILY & WEEKLY members will now have to wait 30 days from when it was 1st posted before you can access them.
Always the way you post a news update and then literally get an email telling me about the poll.
SO, the poll was for – “shall we introduce Meta Blog posts into the site ?”
I actually like the idea (that’s saying something), the poll was suppose to be for 24 hours or max out at 100 votes, neither happened 😄😄😄😄😄
The results are below and I believe it has already been integrated into the site, I will check one I’ve finished here.
:::::::: EDIT ::::::::
NOT BAD, some actually did a decent job —- sorry I’m being hyper critical, trust me if you read some of the other news updates below you’ll understand 😝
DOWNTIME, VOTE, GIVEAWAYS & A BIG THANK YOU
OK lets start with downtime and then carry on, please bear in mind that I can only report what I know, so if any information is incorrect don’t get your knickers in a twist (yep you know who you are).
Earlier this week we had some downtime of about 12- 15 hours, this was due to an integration issue (fuckup) regarding ads that appear on the site (the more revenue the more giveaways, blar blar blar we don’t get paid for keeping the site up and running). I believe the tech guys/gals are going to try again at the end of the month (HINT HINT: after the giveaway) when hopefully they have done there complete research this time.
Right Giveaways, as far as I am aware giveaways are now becoming random, if you remember giveaways generally started at the beginning of the month and then finished about a week before the end of the month (then free membership would open up), now I’m led to that they might start on day 1 and finish on day 2,3,4 or 5 (any day), so keep your eyes open.
THANK YOU!!! 🤣🤣
FINAL MEMBERSHIP AGREED + SMALL SITE ISSUE
The final revamp of the members registration process has now been finalised and the details are as follows and will come into effect around the 3rd July 2022.
Anyone who is currently on a FREE membership will loose access to NEW and OLD APPLAB & ITCH.io (3rd party apps), this process might take a few days to filter through as there are a lot of files to change.
META Quest files are unaffected BUT any NEW files will be hidden from FREE Members for 10 days.
Monthly Giveaway will no longer be offered to FREE Members BUT Quick Giveaways will be unaffected.
SMALL SITE ISSUE
There is currently an issue for non members accessing Quest post (not that you can access the files anyway) PCVR is unaffected and MEMBERS are also unaffected. We are working on a fix.
We have experienced some downtime due to an error with the sites template/theme, the template/theme was updated automatically and the new update has broken something meaning the download button would flash and disappear, we will be running extensive tests to fix this issue over the next few days, so we can expect some more downtime, members should be able to still login when we are under maintenance mode (click the padlock) but expect the site to look a bit garbled and note some thinks will not work correctly.
We have suspended the Quick Giveaway due to this issue and we will re-run it at a later date.
SITE TWEAKS, NEW FORMAT
We are or have started to Implement a few site tweaks to the members system. Currently there are 2 categories :
- FREE Membership
- PRIVATE Membership
FREE membership is open to anyone to join completely FREE of charge (when its FULLY opens in JULY 2022)
PRIVATE Membership is typically the same as a FREE Membership (same benefits) but you will start to get a few extra added bonuses. PRIVATE membership is open to everyone via the register for an account page but will cost you $1
For this $1 Donation, PRIVATE Membership (NOW OPEN) will give you 10 DAYS exclusive access to everything NEW from both META Store releases and APPLab releases (updated titles are not affected and are still available to FREE Membership holders) , you will also get exclusive access to any BETA releases we happen to get our hands on. MONTHLY Giveaways will be for PRIVATE Membership holders ONLY ((JULY 2022) FREE Membership holders will no longer have access to enter).
Quick Giveaways are not affected both FREE & PRIVATE Membership holders will have access.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are currently a FREE Membership user and wish to upgrade your account, please CLOSE your account first via the login drop down menu above and then re-register via the registration page.
TOS Update & FREE Reg
The DollarVR “Terms of Service” agreement has today been updated and we have been asked (told) to start implementing them.
There are a few word changes, corrections, in the TOC BUT please pay attention to number 12 & 13 :
- I understand that I/we/you must read the HELP/FAQ section.
- I agree that if I/we/you request for a specific file that is not already currently listed on the website, my account may/might/will be deleted without notice.(requesting link updates are not affected)
#12 – is there so the powers that be don’t have to drag us all into a discord chat to have a rant.
#13 – please don’t ask for files that are not already on the site, we are a hacking/patching/learning/educational site – if you don’t agree with the TOS then close your account now, we are not your personal one stop shop for any and all apk’s or steam rips you want.
PLEASE NOTE : (This has been personal asked of me, so I have to put this in) DO NOT CONTACT THE SITE ADMIN VIA EMAIL ASKING FOR REQUESTS OR HELP. Currently 330+ users have been deleted and banned & blocked for this.
Right ok, a little bit heavy for me to get my head round, so let me try and summarise.
DO carry on as normal.. (just update yourself on the TOC page)
DON’T email the admins
(Some one has pissed off someone higher up than me & I really don’t care, I get free reign to say what I like)
FREE Registration is now closed for the foreseeable future, the only way in is to pay $1.. (back to a paid site then ..LOL)
I have just been informed the $1 WILL increase to $10 or more when member capacity has nearly reached .. (I’m glad it’s free for me 🙂 )
SIGN UPS, GIVEAWAYS & UPDATES
FREE Registration sign ups are now limited, we will only be opening it up for a max of 24 hours. This is not so we can make money (any excess money we make goes back into the site via giveaways), this is due to server stability issues in the future. Over the last few months we have been monitoring the web traffic to the site, it does even itself out over the 24 hour period BUT we have sen a big increase and we only suspect that that increase will get bigger of the next few months and it will impact the speed of page loads of the site.
Due to advertising restrictions that have been placed on the site over the last several months and now there silly policies (basically if we make $100 in ad revenue, G-ads are taking 50% off at the end of every month (there or there abouts), this is there new algorithm BUT until a massive NET company like CNET or others like it, complain then there is absolutely nothing we can do about it). WE ARE LOOKING AT ALTERNATIVES.
Got a side tracked 🙂 – We will still be running the GIVEAWAYS, maybe just not as many and not for as long as we used to. we might do 3 giveaways at a value of $10 per month or we might do a $30 giveaway title for 3 weeks.
As you all know, if you don’t you do now …. we own our server so our over heads are relatively low compared to renting a server BUT due to the global energy crisis (thanks to RUSSIA) our cost of running the server has increased by roughly about 120% and we expect that to keep increasing over the coming year. We will as always keep you updated of any info we have.
PUBLIC PHASE OUT
The public links phase out has now started, let me explain :
It was decided a few few months ago (by a vote by admins) that we would open the site to public download links and it would ONLY be open for a certain number of months, it seems now that has now come to the end of its cycle and it has been decided that we should honour our vote and close down to the public, we did have a long debate about this last night (too long IMHO) and it has been decided that April will be the last month.
NOTE: the phased roll out has already stated ( sorry i did mean to post this last night, to give everyone the heads up but it was a long night), old public links will still be available BUT ALL new updates will no longer have public links attached.
FREE registration is not effected and will still be open at certain time of the month (check the registration page for more details).
GIVEAWAY & MORE TWEAKS
This months give away is officially OPEN, w would like to thank the admin who has donated this months give away out of there own pocket, so THANK YOU!!.
This months give away will be shorter than usual (15 days) and everyone can only enter once (2 chances of upping your chance of winning), This looks like it will be the norm for future give away’s.
TWEAKS : We have been busy tweaking the server with as many speed tweaks as we can and we think we have found a good balance, during the test period we did break a few things, so if you were effected by them, sorry those issues have now been fixed, we will continue to actively monitor the server stability with the increase in web traffic and we may need to implement a few other tweaks (hopefully if we do need to, you will not notice any downtime).
WINNERS, GIVEAWAY & OPEN
Congratulations to Tayonese, Daniel Warren & Mathews for each Winning a copy of Forever Darts. As always you can see who has won all our giveaways by accessing the Giveaway Winners page (The link is on the menu bar at the top of your screen).
We did state that we were not going to do a giveaway for April due to our issue with our ads provider, we are still unsure at this time whether this is still the case (we might do a quick giveaway) BUT we will keep you informed if anything changes.
FREE registration is now open for everyone BUT note if we do run a giveaway registration will close for the duration of the giveaway.
ADS, ERROR FIXES & LONG WAITS FOR GUESTS
ADS are now back and working on the site again, unfortunately due to the loss in revenue for the 19 days it was off for, we will not be hosting a Giveaway in APRIL 2022, so FREE membership will be OPEN for the whole of APRIL.
FIXES : many thanks to “IoniRO” for letting us know about the site search issue, it was down to an animation loading issue and we have removed the search icon from the main menu bar, the site search box is now located on the right hand sidebar of the screen, we have also fixed a few issues with the post comments page, (it put everyone’s comments into moderation mode and then needed admin approval but then we could not approve the comments), also fixed a few slight site speed tweeks.
ALL NON-Member Downloads (Guests) will now have to start waiting 60 seconds on every download page for ALL future new posts and updates. This is due to a lot of hit and runs, thus not letting the page load completely and simply bypassing any ads from loading.
Please remember without the small ad revenue we do get, we would not be able to keep the site up and running. We are in a lucky position that the running costs are relatively low since we own our sever and we don’t require any hosting or bandwidths overheads. BUT we still have to pay the electricity bill for the server.
ADS & NEW FILE FORMAT
Our ads provider (google) has suspended our account for 30 days, unfortunately this will have a knock on effect, NO ADS means no giveaways, so the latest giveaway will be the last until our account is restored (if it’s not restored then we will look for another ADS provider).
We have changed the file format for downloads from .RAR to .7z (https://www.7-zip.org), simply because it offers better compression ratio which ultimately means smaller file sizes.
NEW DOWNLOAD RULES & ANOTHER QUICK UPDATE
The NEW download rules as stated below (25/02/2022) have now come into full effect.
Brief explanation : ALL NEW releases including new hotfixes will only be accessible to DollarVR members, Guests will have to either wait for the next FULL release update or register for a DollarVR membership (which is FREE) when it opens up again. (see the HELP/FAQ SECTION)
The new site look has taken well, all backend plugins/software are working as they should. The only thing missing is Everyone’s Avatar on comments (not a drama).
Today the guys/gals have started to update the site to a new look, please be aware that some things might not work as indented, if that is the case please let us know in the chat box, so we can try and fix it.
ISUES, ISUES, ISUES & MEMBERS ISSUES
There’s not really that many issues (well I hope there isn’t) .. The Issue with the mobile AMP site has stumped the guys/gals working on it (they’ve done something or a site plugin has broken, because its now affecting the search bar on the main website).
Due to the latter we are (they are) implanting (<— hahahaha … IMPLEMNTING ) a direct theme change (we do have 2 other themes as a backup BUT they believe theses themes should only be used as a last resort to avoid any major downtime), SO some things will work and a lot of things will NOT work for a short period of time, these changes will start from early March 2022. (lets hope they don’t brake the site again. 🤣🤣🤣🤣 .. sorry guys/gals, I’ve only love for you all. 🥰).
Convinced (yep me neither)..
OK another issue on my list – Beat Saber 1.19.1 (for Quest) has been fixed, there was apparently a bug where it would only play for so long and then it would show a black screen (bet that was a bit disorienting).
I think that’s it. see you next time 👍
Not really an issue more of a BONUS all NEW apk’s (including hotfixes) will now become members ONLY downloads (I believe there is a few already), this will last until the next release of the apk, then it will be opened up to guests as well.
HAHA & ROADMAP
OK, HaHa refers to us being stupid (well not me personally), we thought we had fixed the issue with members only download links but actually we(he) completely fucked it up (royally) .. we have now finally fixed some of the links, we aren’t going to fix ALL links (there’s just simply to many) – all other link will just display the RED members only icon/image to members & guests.
Roadmap : This year becomes our 2 year anniversary (June), there have been many up and a few down’s (one major) we have given away over $700 worth of FREE APKS and we have a special GIVEAWAY for JUNE in mind. (info to follow)
As you know I like to keep you all informed (even though I’m currently doing other things but I still have much love for DollarVR), the word in the discord is that we are looking into making the site members only (STILL FREE TO JOIN). I have no other info on this or how it would work, as soon as I do I will as always update you all.
We have fixed an issue where New members could not access the Members Only Download Links (thanks @Dek), this should now not happen for newly registered members in the future. We are still looking into the mystery that is the navigation main bar is not working at all on some tablets & mobile phones.
FREE LINKS & QUICK GIVEAWAYS
From today ALL FREE links to visitors will be reduced to a MAX of 3 download links, DollarVR members will still get ALL links to download from (normally 8-12 links). This decision has been made to best suit our members.
NOTE: This will apply to new updates ONLY.
Giveaway’s will now end for Guests, Quick giveaways will now ONLY be open to DollarVR members.
SITE NAVIGATION & MEMBER CLEAN UP
We are aware of an issue with the top menu and search not working on mobile and some tablet devices, we are working on fixing this issue. We have added a login button, search bar, as well as categories tabs on the main page until the issue has been resolved.
Our system has finished it’s automatic clean up of all members who have not or did not verify there email address when they sign up to become a member, in total 711 members where deleted from our system, if you were affected by this then please note that we can NOT add new members manually, If you wish to become a member then you will need to wait until the members ONLY giveaway has been completed and registration will then re-open.
ANOTHER FREE GIVEAWAY, MEMBERS ONLY PERKS ,PCVR & T&C
as you can see we have another FREE giveaway going for the next 7 days, this is FREE FOR EVERYONE to enter members & guests, so Good luck to ALL.
We had a Members ONLY poll going, on the main page – we were interested to see how many members actually pay attention and either read the site news page or actually payed attention to the main page and were not here just here to Hit and Run, We had a massive 6 …. yes 6 members voted out of 745 active members.
So we have scrapped the idea of rewarding members with dedicated google drive access….. BUT we are looking into maybe giving members DIRECT access to the site we use for uploads and then you can choose which provider you want to download from, rather than having to take pot luck on the download links……. Maybe
We have started to introduce PCVR title back onto the site (The VR Porn Section looks like it wont be coming back), this time we are NOT specifying that it “Works with Goldberg,ALI213, ETC..” you will have to try it out for yourselves, we can tell you most of the files are steam rips so ALI213 should work BUT we will put on every post if it’s not a steam rip.
ALL information regarding PCVR can be found in the HELP/FAQ section of the site.
-=*=- EDIT -=*=-
We have added a Terms & Conditions popup to the site. The T&C will show up every 72 hours for guests and only once for members.
Sorry, we’ve had some slight downtime due to a server misconfiguration, the issue has been address and should now be fixed.
LOGIN & GIVEAWAYS
As you may have noticed there have been a few login issues over the last week, I have been assured that these issues have now been resolved, so I’m optimistic that even I can now login 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣
The Quick Giveaway was WON by Bartłomiej (and redeemed already), enjoy throwing them darts (just not at real people).
As you have already seen by the pop up you can now choose the Giveaway prize for FEB 2022, We do urge you to take a minute or 2 and just participate in the vote, if you closed it and haven’t had your vote then here is another chance for you to vote below.
MEMBERS ONLY BENEIFTS
We are currently looking at how we can best fit the needs of our members..
Members benefits currently include :
- A Chat wall
- Monthly FREE Giveaways
- Only members can reply to posts
Not bad for just creating an account… so we were looking into drip feeding new content to members only, then after a certain time release content to everyone else but we think that’s a bit unfair considering members aren’t actually paying for a service. So we are thinking of opening a members ONLY GoogleDrive account so members can download at max speed, thus avoiding the free slow’ish download servers.
We will run a poll and see what everyone thinks.
NOTE: This POLL is for Members ONLY
-=*=- EDIT -=*=-
We have added the poll to the main page for easy access and so you can also see the result.
SITE ERRORS & UPDATE + ADS
We have fix a slight error in where clicking the NEWS page would some how revert you to the login page.. no idea, don’t ask .. it’s been fixed.
-=*=- EDIT -=*=-
I have literally just been CC in an email from from MySQL, I won’t go into detail because it’s very technical and to be honest It’s beyond my level of comprehension BUT they are saying it’s not there fault, it’s a server misconfiguration user error fault .. I suppose it’s like “Novak Djokovic” not being able to complete his own paperwork or doing an interview when he knew he had covid-19 (I’ve got Covid-19 BUT I’m sure you’ll be fine) or perhaps it was like “Boris Johnson” going to a party that was actually a work event (with wine and cheese) or maybe it was like “Donald trump” saying don’t storm congress but FUCK yea do it anyway.
-=*=- EDIT2 -=*=-
It has been brought to our attention that EVERYONE want’s something for nothing and MOST want it on a plate.
We have now just increased the wait time for you to download anything from 15 seconds to 60 seconds, please be aware that hosting a website is not FREE, regardless of our time and effort, we do actually need real money to pay for hosting bills — you know to keep the lights on… so to speak —
I’m pretty sure you can all read between the lines BUT if you can’t then the 60 seconds will stay indefinitely.
-=*=- EDIT3 -=*=-
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
We have just been told that we should add the T&C (terms and conditions) in plain view for everyone to view.
We have added the T&C to the main page on the left hand side (you can’t miss it), we (the other lot) suggest you read it and if you have any problems with them or don’t agree with them then.. google is your friend.
We have had some server downtime over the last couple of days, We can explain the downtime on the 11th which was down to a MySQL database server update which somehow reset all the current settings regarding backups to an unknown configuration (It wasn’t a hack, it’s just an anomaly – we have reached out to MySQL and are awaiting a reply) , it stated backing up 100meg baklog’s every 60 seconds, so after a fair few hours it literally had eaten up all the server storage and then because it could no longer back up, just… well basically stopped working.
We had some downtime this morning, a server error which then kept restarting the server several times (bare in mind it take about 5-10 minutes to restart the server, so I’m informed), the server admins are looking into it BUT are fairly (I say fairly because I have no idea) it was a bad update/patch and the server reverted to a previous version (So in a word…. it fixed itself).
It never rains but it pours…. Lets hope for a dry spell.
RETHINK 2022 v1
We have called it v1 because we will change or minds at some point …
OK …. so …. after everyone has been done with the holidays and are now in a sort of good frame of mind (I’m sure there were one or two admins still recovering .. no judgement here), it has been decided that the membership to join our family (DollarVR) should be a lot harder to join .. good news for you lot that are already members but bad news for everyone trying to join.
The time scope to join for new members will now drop from 7-10 days to 24-36 hours and the rules still apply, if you register and don’t log in to your account, it will be deleted.
In future all WINNERS of the giveaway emails will be checked to make sure they are still a member and not just a join to win fake mail bullshit, so if you have entered with a different email (WHY!!) …. you WILL NOT win.
FREE MEMBERSHIP & SITE OPEN FOR ALL
We have just added new software that has now changed ALL current registered members to a FREE members plan … Don’t stress were not going back to being a paid site, we have done this to make the site accessible to EVERYONE.
-=*=- EDIT -=*=-
The post wall on the main page is also ONLY for registered members.
The site is now open for all to enjoy, the only page/post that is restricted for Members is the giveaway page, we have decided to ONLY open new member registrations after the giveaways have finished.
MEMBERS ONLY GIVEAWAY will run for 3 weeks of the month (so for JANUARY it’s the 1st til the 22nd)… when the giveaway finishes and the winner has been drawn we will open NEW member registration’s for 1 week or so (until the end of the month), then we will SHUT DOWN the registration. RUN FEBUARYS GIVEAWAY and then re-open the registration ONCE that giveaway has finished, and so, and so.
HAPPY NEW YEAR & CLOSED REGISTRATION
OK, I’ve sobered up now (ish), I just want to wish everyone here at DollarVR, A VERY happy new year, let us hope this year, is a year to remember.. I know the last few years have been ……… fucking awful for some people (myself included, I lost someone that was irreplaceable to me) BUT we have to carry on, do the daily grind and just hope to god it won’t get any worse and if it does well then, SHIT we have to deal with what is thrown at us and just keep moving forward, just remember your not alone in this.
Registration is now closed until the 22nd of January (I think) .. this is because of the giveaway. The giveaway is for you Guys/Gals the members .. when we opened it up last year for everyone to enter, literally that is what happened everyone joined JUST for the giveaway (see previous post below) .. fucking vultures. So we will see how January Giveaway goes with shutting new member registration down for 3 weeks and then we will reassess. We are not here to make money, unlike like a lot of sites out there BUT to keep this site up and running and provide our current and future members we need to show/click the ads.
