When you search for the terms I said in post #283 did it list any templates other than arcade ones? (ie additional.css, forum.css etc)

It would probably be a better idea if you edited the background color of your blocksubhead_background stylevar, instead of trying to change the text color, as that would also affect the text of the selected tab. The background colors are too contrasted. Do the tabs look the same on your profile pages?

This is what my profile tabs look like, I wish I could get the arcade to look the same.



I searched for blocksubhead and it is set to white already?

When I try and set a price for a game, it doesn't work. It still shows as free. Anyone else had this issue or anyone know how to fix it?

Great mod! I have one issue so far.

Expanding an arcade game ruins the design of my forums. Is there a way to disable this option? Or is there a way to limit the dimensions of expansion?

I like the resize option-- I think that's enough for users to get by without the need for a full screen expansion.

It appears as if you have uploaded the files incorrectly. Please drag and drop the contents of the upload folder (use Ctrl+A to select all files) to your public_html folder.

Persistent after installing the dbyte mods as a whole, even after uninstalling the arcade this will happen if I have my plugin's enabled. Help?

Looks like you didnt fully overwrite the arcade.php file from ibproarcade with the one from vbarcade.

You can set a Maximum Game Width in the vbarcade settings, precisely for that.

If it happens when vbarcade has been uninstalled, the error is not being caused by vbarcade.
