At a glance through the code, it looks like that shouldn't matter (although I think there are some hard-coded table prefixes in a section relevant to one of the other databases, not MySQL), but that's the only thing I can think of that I've done differently database-wise. Well, I've added a couple custom tables, but that shouldn't break anything.
Ok, I can understand how it is possible that the updates wouldn't work if you changed the prefix for your phpBB tables. I've always been curious as to why anyone would change the prefix for their phpBB tables though. Perhaps if you are storing the tables for more than one board in the same database, I guess that might be necessary. But for those who only have one board, why what would be the benefit of changing the default table naming prefix???

I have a significantly-modified board, with many of my own modifications, and this approach to upgrading is a real salvation. I might not be able to effectively upgrade otherwise!
SnakeStu, I don't think anyone felt that you were being ungrateful. How can anything improve if people aren't allowed to ask questions or add suggestions? If you felt like I was accusing you of being ungrateful, I apologize. That certainly wasn't my intent. I have a heavily modified board too, so I really do appreciate these version upgrade MODs as much as you do. Without them, I would still be running on version 2.0.10 on my board...
