v3 Arcade is now a member of the vBadvanced family!

The support forums & data from have been merged into the site.

v3 Arcade for vBulletin 4.x.x
For vBulletin 3.x.x, please see here.

Please note... until is upgraded to vBulletin 4, some demo sites can be found here. Also, because of styling changes introduced in vB 4.0.8 to allow customized user profile pages, this version requires 4.0.8+ to be installed.

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

  • Edit-free template updates!

v3 Arcade for vBulletin 4 also has some feature differences versus v3 Arcade for vBulletin 3. Currently that list includes....
  • The separate Arcade navbar has been replaced with the options being moved up to the standard vB navbar. Be sure to turn on the navbar link! (ACP => v3 Arcade => v3 Arcade Settings => v3 Arcade General Settings => Navbar Link Position)
  • When viewing a game categories other than the 'All' category, the category name will now be included in the navbar breadcrumbs.
  • Added a new template "v3arcade_postbit_userid_trophy_wrapper" to allow adding some HTML around the arcade award images in the postbit.
  • The category tabs shown on the main page will use the vB styling instead of their own defined styles. As we go forward the vB4 version of v3A will lose more & more of it's custom styling and instead use more of the new vB4 styling features elements.
  • New option to display a "New" game category tab that will display all games in newest to oldest order. In addition to the new tab a "New Games" link will also be shown in the vB "What's New" navbar link. (ACP => v3 Arcade => v3 Arcade Settings => v3 Arcade Homepage Settings => Display "New" Category Tab)

Is anyone still using this arcade?
It works fine with vb 4.2.5 and with a few edits, works with PHP 7.4.4

Would anyone be interested in a html5 game mod for v3arcade?

I sure would. I currently have an arcade installed for vB 4.2.5...but I believe it requires flash to use...and some of my members say..."Hey...I can't see any games."...which is because flash isn't installed...and many folks don't want to install flash.

Thus an html5 arcade for vB 4.2.5 would be nice...and I think many of these html5 games are better quality.

I am also interested. I'm strongly considering removing the arcade from my forum because it's too much of a pain for most people due to Flash.
