v3 Arcade
for vBulletin 3.6.1
=================================

"v3 Arcade" is the third Arcade system I've written for vBulletin. It's coded from scratch, not a port of an older version - and because it was coded specifically for vBulletin 3.6 it uses the product system for code modifications, and utilizes AJAX technology throughout. Here's a brief rundown of the features in this version of v3 Arcade.

- Supports both v3 Arcade and iB games.
- Download *legal* free, premium and multiplayer games directly from v3arcade.com to your Arcade installation.
- Import script to convert your old v3 Arcade installation. (A script to import games, scores and news from old IBPro installations is available here, thanks to Tigga: http:www.v3arcade.com/forums/showthread.php?t=324)
- AJAX based instant ratings, for simple to use game ratings.
- AJAX based inline score moderation.
- AJAX based instant game searching.
- Tabbed, customizable categories.
- Challenge system for one-on-one contests.
- User-permission based settings for email/PM notification, challenge settings.
- Streamlined viewing modes for users with lower resolutions.
- AJAX based quick stats, for viewing statistics by passing the cursor over a username.
- Mass import tools for importing games in bulk.
- Reverse and decimal based scoring.
- Arcade-only closure with customizable message.
- Per game criteria, allows you to control access to games by reputation, posts, registration length.
- Postbit based awards.
- Personalized recommendations for other games users might like, based on what they’re playing.
- Quick stats, letting a user know how many other scores are above and below theirs.
- Score ranking.
- Admin customizable “score feedback”, displays a message based on how well as user has done.
- Numerous Admin CP settings to control things like popup opacity, maximum comment length, hover delay length, and numerous other behaviors.
- Full admin control over the types of content allowed in comments (BB code, HTML, smilies, etc.)
- Usergroup based access permissions.
- Fully phrased, for each translation into other languages.
- An ever growing collection of third party add-ons, thanks to Oblivion Knight.
- A slick, professional layout.

I just upgraded to vb 3.6.3. I also upgraded my vbplaza and v3arcade.

However, now the arcade access feature through the vbplaza does not seem to be letting anyone play the arcade.

Any ideas here? It worked fine on vb 3.6.0 .

No, not really, but if you edit the pruduct XML file and search for all occurences of:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and replace with

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

It all appears to install and work well. I've done this on my 3.5.4 site and am yet to hear any bad reports or experience issues.

Re: v3 Arcade - Games Arcade System for 3.6.0

Ok I've got a weird small error on the high scores page.

V3 Arcade Version 1.0.7

VB Version 3.6.2


Error shows this message at the top of the page.

"Warning: Cannot use a scalar value as an array in /home/chris/public_html/forums/arcade.php on line 1677"

And your always listed in 0th place in the standings. Minor problem, but still an annoyance.

install problem

I get this error when I try to install on 3.6.3, any ideas?

I uploaded the "files" into the root VB folder then ran the xml. Tried a couple times and reuploaded a few times, same thing each time.

Importing Product, Please Wait...

Have you made sure the directory that the games are imported too is writable ?

I don't think pluggins should be uploaded to the vb root folder mate. I think you should be putting this into the xml folder. Use your ftp to find the xml folder, and upload it that way, then type the extension into your import product page. Good luck.

Hey Everyone,

I've just tried installing the Arcade and everything appeared to install correctly and I was able to update the usergroup permissions. But when you click on the Arcade link, I just get a white page of nothing. Also, in the AdminCP under "v3 Arcade" I can see the "Settings" page. But if I click on Default User Settings, Categories, Games, Game Tools, or Score Tools, I just get the white page. Anyone have this problem or have an idea of how to fix it.

I haven't edited any templates for the arcade (ie "arcade_sdfkj"), but I edited the other regular vb templates like it says in the install file.
