    DUTag - The Next Generation of Wii GamerTags


    ~~Official Thread ~~

    HERE (Registration Required)

    First of all, we at DarkUmbra, would like to explain that we’re not trying to steal any thunder from wiinnertag. We feel that Daileon created a fantastic idea/application and we feel we can build off of it. Our DUTag supports some newer features and we hope you will like them.


    What is DUTag?
    -------->CHECK ME OUT<--------
    DUTag is a feature that can be used with most backup loaders, both disc and usb. Our plan of action is to make a gamertag that is as similar to those available on the other 2 gaming systems. Although creating an application that is similar in terms of achievements isn’t possible, it is possible to track certain gaming information, such as recent games played, scores and points awarded for tournament wins. Moreover, DUTag gives you the ability to choose what information you want available in your gamertag, such as Friend Codes, NickNames, Number of games available to be displayed etc...
    Games played are automatically added and removed from the tag as they are played. Go ahead and give it a whirl!

    Please Note:
    - The tag can be used on any site.
    - An intro topic is required after registration (To avoid Leeching)



    Need more info?
    - You can reply to this thread, or
    - You can visit our website www.DarkUmbra.Net or Setup Instructions / Downloads



    Where can I get mine?
    Register @ DarkUmbra and then create an intro topic. From there, go to this link View/Edit My Tag



    What Loaders can be used with DUTag?
    - NeoGamma (unofficial)
    - Wiiflow (official)
    - CFG USB Loader (official)
    - uLoader (unofficial)
    - USBLoaderGX (unofficial)
    - JoyLoader CFG
    * With Plans to add others *



    Are there any requirements?
    - A hacked wii
    - Wi-Fi Enabled
    - Registration @ DarkUmbra.Net



    Is there anything else that needs to be done?
    Well, each loader uses its own method to get the tag working properly. Here’s how to set it up properly for the loaders that work with DUTag.
    Register @ DarkUmbra.net, create an intro topic and then click here.

    Spoiler





    Can we get an example of what it looks like?
    Here you go:

    Spoiler





    So what makes this different? What are the differences?

    Current:
    - Custom colours for member/nickname
    - The ability to use your profile pic from DU on your tag.
    - The ability to import your wiinnertags profile. (Import your score/stats)
    - The ability to upload your own background picture.
    - If you have a friend code stored in our database for a certain game, your wii FC will switch to the fc of the game you're playing
    - Trophy System. Earn medals based on game experience.
    - An automatic, "Online Now/Currently Playing option". So, your friends will know when you're playing/online from the automatic status update on your tag.


    Future:
    - Import Mii/Create Mii application
    - Custom Fonts
    - Have the "Wiitdb" and the "online now" logo's rotate for the one being used. They overlap on some tags and it looks bad.
    - Add the ability to choose more than 1 bg and have them rotate daily.
    - Added/Implement a new DUTag template with ranking system and medal count.
    - Possibly auto-add feature that adds the users DUTag to their signature at DU

    ** Follow the Changelog HERE **



    This seems interesting, can I help? Can I submit an idea?
    Sure, just PM me here or PM ShadowPuppet, the mastermind, at DarkUmbra. We’re looking for ways to make this better and better, if you can think of something that I haven’t mentioned, please bring it to our attention, and if it’s possible, we’ll try




    !!!VERY IMPORTANT!!!
    WE ARE NOT COMPETING WITH WIINERTAG!

    Right now we're looking into uLoader, UsbLoaderGx, CoverFloader and softchip support.
    We can't promise anything, but we'll try

    A bunch of updates to post out for you that JJ and I are really excited about... First off DUTag is now compatible with uLoader but requires a bit more minor testing which I'll do tonight so you can expect uLoader DUTag version posted on the site on the set up page.

    Second is a small but useful update to the friend code database. The feature where you can optionally have your last played game show the friend code for that game instead of your Wii Number, I have added a little token that is placed on the game when it's friend code is being shown. You guys can take a peek at my tag and see what I mean. The code in my DUTag right now is for Mario Kart Wii, the last game I played, which also has a little marker in the bottom right corner of the cover indicating that its friend code is being pulled

    Now, JJ posted on some other sites that we're working on an awesome feature for DUTag and a select few of you here may know this as well. Well, I have just completed the last bit of the modules for the new system - DUTag Medals.

    Users can now rack up medals for games they have played a certain amount of times. This works on the same basis as the points system. You can only put 5 games per day towards your medal counts and only 1 medal count per game per day. Medals are displayed directly on top of the cover that is being put in the tag.

    As a thanks for the DUTag users who have already played a significant amount of games, I have put ALL of those games towards your medal count. So hellboy in particular, being the highest ranked DUTag user, you'll notice significant changes on your games - most of them will now haz medals.

    The categories for each "level" of medal are as follows:
    Bronze -> 20 plays of a single game
    Silver -> 45 plays of a single game
    Gold -> 75 plays of a single game

    And that is the new medal system . Medals are attached onto each individual game when they are achieved. See mine, JJ's, or hellboy's DUTag for an example.

    In the near future, there will be a page simillar to DUTag stats showing stats based on medals as well as a page in your user control panel so you can track which medals you have and which medals you are close to achieving

    The other thing that is new that is slightly less important is the fact that I've added a new template for both normal use and custom template use. It's a modified version of template #3 (my tag uses #3) which has larger covers

    Well that's all for now lol... if I may so myself I'm very excited for the new medal system. I think that will further differentiate DUTag from other providers and provide yet again a better experience for our users which is what is always the most important

    Thanks again all of you for being DUTag users. It's very much so appreciated. I can promise you new features and cool updates in the future so you'll be hearing from me later.

    Until then,
    ~Shadow Out

    DUTag Changelog
    So to re-iterate:
    - A TROPHY SYSTEM
    - uLoader (added tomorrow)
    - FC's that adjust to the game FC when you're playing.
    - a FC logo that shows up on the cover of the game the FC coincides with.

    So, if you look at my tag for example, the FC posted is the FC for black ops

    I have great news for you guys! I have just finished putting the final touches on the Facebook modules for DUTag!

    You will find a new section in your DUTag Control Panel entitled "Facebook Integration" and it is from here you can set it up.

    You MAY have to allow popups on that page but I doubt it. Reason being is the Facebook API uses a popup window to ask for your permission to allow DUTag access

    So yea, check it out if you're interested if not, stay tuned because there's another WICKED feature just down the road

    Just log into your DUTag control panel and on the left you'll see a new link for Facebook Integration!!!!!

    ================

    Oh, as well, I've also created a Credits page, giving credit where credit is due. You can check that out as well in your DUTag Control Panel


    Thanks once again guys for making this useful

    DUTag Changelog

    Until then,
    Shadow, out.
    ^^^ It's pretty sweet!^^^

    Wait until our next surprise... It's gonna be epic!

    Hey there guys,

    I think it's about time I've registered here because I feel that JJ is doing all the hard work that I should be helping with lol. SO, I'm finally here.

    I'd like to introduce myself as the creator of DUTag so if you guys have any questions/comments/concerns, please don't hesitate to message me here or on DU. For any issues you may have with setup or whatnot, you can create a topic here or just reply to this thread and JJ or myself will get you sorted out.

    You guys can keep up to date with changes and bug fixes and updates here, in this thread, as well as I'll post anything I change here, on DU and on the other sites where we have threads posted.

    Thanks for your interest in DUTag and we hope to see you around soon

    Just wanted to post an update out to you

    I have just finished the DUTag info page that is displayed at the root tag.darkumbra.net. It has general information about DUTag and how to go about getting your own!

    It took me forever to get the images done and the tag examplars lol so if you have a free minute, I'd love for you to check it out

    Until the next update,

    Your sig has been altered, to reflect both message, size (kb), and proper resolution. Please adhere to site rules; thank you. And for a change, it wasn't me who did this LOL.

    Hi there guys, just me with another update for DUTag and this time it's a really sweet one. Not to say that not all our updates for you guys are sweet but this one JJ and myself have really been looking forward to, and that new feature is Now Playing or Online Now.

    What this is, is a small image that is added to your sig immediately after you play a game and is removed after some time passes by. Since we are limited by the current loader methods, it is impossible to track exactly when you stop playing your game. However, we can set a timer to automatically remove the "online now" status. So what this feature brings is that. You can modify the settings for how long you want the online now emblem to stay in your tag in the DUTag Control Panel.

    We are very excited about this new feature and we hope that it further advances us to stand out as one of the best gamertags for the Wii out there.

    Thanks again to all our supporters and until the next awesome feature update,
    Shadow, out.
