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.

And last question, does anyone know where I can change the color of the tab when you select a category? The style I use now gives a solid red tab and blocks out the letters.

Indeed...after all "we'll be back with a new version for 3.7" never amounted to anything....

Such a pity, John is such a talent with the arcade. But it's clear he doesn't have time to do it.

A different programmer, well known within the vB community, will be the projects new lead programmer. The current plan is to get the old "v3Arcade.com" site updated to vB 3.8.1 (already done), make any changes needed to the 1.0.7 version to be up & running with vB 3.8.x (already done, just some minor tweaks were needed), and then essentially start fresh with a new "Wish List" for the next version.

arcade works fine.. just when you try to submit the score it kicks you to the main forum page and does not save the score..

midirtrider, what version exactly are you using? This version of v3 Arcade is outdated and no longer support.

The current version, 1.1.1, can be found here.

The dedicated support site can be found here.
