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.

Have there been any official news from the author of the mod, as far as any future updates go?

This message was on the dev support for over 6 months already
We'll be back with a new Arcade release for vBulletin 3.7. In the meantime, head over to vBulletin.org for downloads of past v3 Arcade releases.

Seems like he does not care to offer additional games for it OR he is one of the types that will not release something until it is 100% the way they like it.

A switch to 3.7 from 3.6 does not take that long but since we ARE not him it's bad on our part to assume/speculate and spread rumors or accusations about not doing anything to open his site back up....

Use it or lose it until he supports it more.

It seems that only the originally installed games can participate in challenges. I installed a couple games and put a check mark in the game administration against the "Challenge Participation".

Yet I still only have the same original several games available for the challenge.

Any ideas?

Only v3Arcade games are listed at the New Challenge page.
I am guessing you have installed IBPro games.

I have explained how you can fix it with an edit of arcade.php earlier.

Bunny!

Thank you very much. It fixed the issue.

I also have a general question/idea.

I don't know if such an addition to v3arcade exists but here is something to ponder on.

I understand that we already have the LEADERBOARD modification. But it only considers the titles.

It would be nice to eventually get something like a SCOREBOARD, where the overall performance of the player is considered. Games played. Tries, etc.

1 place - 10 points
2 place - 8 points
3 place - 6 points
4 place - 5 points
5 place - 4 points
6 place - 3 points
7 place - 2 points
8 place - 1 point

Thanks as well!

I'm going to try IBpro games so this will help!

In the v3Arcade settings I have it set up so that only the best result counts. it works for all the cases but when the same user gets the same score. Then there are 2 results for the same user listed.

Is there a way to fix this?

I fixed it this way, see below.
Note that I don't really take any responsibility for this code. It might be some much better way to do it...

In arcade.php
Find this chunk of code:

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

Replace it with this:

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

also find this: (there is some small differences from the code above)

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

Replace it with:

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