For additional information just check out the attached Screenshots

ibProArcade is compatible to ibProArcade-Games (*wow* surprise!), v3arcade-Games and PNflashgames (, use POSTNUKE format).
PNflashgames does even offer Multiplayer-Games.

This Hack was originally done for Invision Power Board (IPB) by Chris Kelly and later adapted to work within vBulletin 3.0.x but had no real integrated AdminCP and even some illegal licensed Files from IPB included, so it was removed from official vBulletin-Sites.

ibProArcade for vBulletin comes along with a complete new AdminCP with even more options and improved functionality, has been bugfixed alot and I implemented some additional feature that where missing. All known security-issues found have been fixed.

ibProArcade is full compatible to PHP4 and PHP5 and works with all vBulletin 3.x.x (yes, 3.0.x + 3.5.x + 3.6.x + 3.7.x + 3.8.x) with all the same Scripts !
ibProArcade v2.7.5+ and later is full compatible to PHP5.6 and PHP7 and works with all vBulletin-versions 3.x/4.x with all the same Scripts !
PHP7.0/7.1 require minimum vBulletin 3.8.11 or 4.2.5 and ibProArcade v2.7.5+

Installation of ibProArcade is very simple and easy:

vBulletin 3.0.x
upload the Files
run the Installer
edit 4 PHP-Files
edit 3 Templates
add 1 new Template

vBulletin 3.5.x & 3.6.x & 3.7.x & 3.8.x & 4.x.x
upload the Files
import the Product-XML-File
edit 3 Templates

If you are upgrading from an existing Arcade, some information:
  • For existing ibProArcade-Installations (v2.6.6+ and older) check the included Upgrade-Information (look in Archive)
  • For existing ibProArcade-Installations (v2.5.1) just do everything like a fresh installation, your Games and Scores should be kept automatically
  • For existing v3arcade-Installations (v1.0.x) for vBulletin 3.5/3.6 there is the converter available.
I want to say a big THANK YOU to everybody who helped in the 3 months of development, testing and bugfixing the initial v2.5.3+ (in alphabetical order):
---MAD---, Acers, Aftermath, beacher, dede1, E=mc˛, Esposito, Feckie (Roger), Gemma, ggiersdorf, GrendelKhan{TSU, Huijting, jbd, JTyson, kall, kylek, MasterMaik, matrix, media4you, micheal332001, MissKalunji, MrLister, nitro, nullified, Okie, Paul_Hollibone, Scotty2k, Ski-Whiz, slank, Smoker, stangger5, Synper, soniceffect, Sooner95, tcs, Tekram, Willy, Wordplay and everybody else I forgot to mention here

Anywhere else the footer works fine, but on arcade footer it shows it at the top (i assume because you put your own footer in there too)

Any idea how to fix this?

thanks alot! I'm using this on my site now. When Vbulletin goes to 4.0 will this survive with an update? or will it have to be totally rewritten?
Interested in Japan? Visit my site: WasabiBot It's a forum for those living and working in Japan.

OK, well I dont use CPanel! So is there any other fix for keeping scores?

support Ibproarcade: urgente

I am here to ask a serious media, I beg you in danger of closing the game room. The problem is serious: since we installed Ipbroarcade with Top25players, everything went wrong: zero scores and standing fold. The download was done well, please someone vbulletin, can come to our aid?
Someone is willing to give us a hand and come to our forum? Now we have installed v3arcade, but someone can help and come to our forum to install ibProArcade? Respond please.

Hmmm. Doesn't seem to be working for me on vBulletin v3.8.4.

In the ACP I get errors whenever I go to anything in the Arcade section of the ACP. I can still stay on the page, but it gives me errors like:

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required './arcade/functions/functions.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/insomni1/public_html/forums/admincp/arcade.php on line 37

When I go to the Arcade directory in my website it says that I don't have permission to access it.

How do I change the message that guests see when they try to play the arcade?
I do not allow guest to play the arcade and I would like to entice them to register in this manner!

Thanx, m411b

mySQL query error, and loop

When I try and start a tourney, i get this

mySQL query error: INSERT INTO tournaments
(gid,numplayers,datestarted,demare,creat,plibre,nb tries,cost,jackpot,jackpot_type,champion,url_discu t) VALUES
('21','4','1252727363','0','nyjetgrl','3','2','0', '','raising','','')

mySQL error: Unknown column 'jackpot' in 'field list'
mySQL error code:
Date: Friday 11th 2009f September 2009 10:49:23 PM
I discovered that going in through the Arcade ModCP avoided this error, for whatever reason. However, when I start a tourney I get the Join Tourney screen (see attach), a message that Tournament Registration is OK, and then I'm looped right back to this join screen.

Any thoughts?
