    Myself and Nimrod have spent the day upgrading the forum software from vBulletin 4 to XenForo, we have been planning this for around 6 months now and finally went for the upgrade today. As you can see we're backup and running on XenForo with everything imported nicely.

    Some things might well not work as expected at the moment, we still have things to finalise and improve, however the hardest part is done and it's all minor improvements we can make from now on without taking Digiex offline again. For example we want to make it easy to tell apart threads which have been pinned to the top like we had on vBulletin, along with restoring the downloads and guide buttons which were on our top navigation menu.

    You will find now Digiex is a secure https site and in addition responsive, so will adapt to the size of the device you are browsing on.

    For the end user you should be able to have a generally more modern forum experience, private messages will be in threads like SMS messages on modern smart phones, you will get notification for various events on the forum, such as someone quoting you, or linking one of your posts.

    Please do report any bugs and constructive feedback to us and we will do our best to address these, both myself and Nimrod work full time and work on Digiex as a hobby, so please bear with us :)

    More than anything we hope your experience will generally be a lot smoother, thank you for sticking with us!

      We are aware that a lot of the links in 'Download' posts aren't working. This is because they are linking to an attachment in the post. You can still download the content by scrolling to the bottom of the post where all the attachments are. Sadly it's a manual process and there is a lot of links. We are slowly but surely updating them. In the mean time if you see any please don't hesitate to let us know and we'll get round to them ASAP. Thank you :)

      It makes me happy to see this site going strong through-out the years. Digiex played a part in forming who I am today.

      I remember you from many years ago, it's nice Digiex could be a positive influence on you! :) The Xbox 360 scene is not as active these days, however we do try and keep up with developments and post new tutorials were possible, not been a student any more makes that a lot harder, however Digiex has been getting a lot of love this Christmas!
