I doubt anyone is still around to support this mod but here goes!

I'm getting the standard error when trying to browse Mochi games - XML Error: no element found at Line 0.

I've followed the FAQ for a fix - user permissions, allow_furl_open and mod_security and still nothing. I even read up that it could just be a firefox browser error, but alas none of the above has helped.

Does anyone have another idea I could try? I've even been on Mochi and added games to the download list and tried to do it manually, says their installed but nothing actually gets installed.

Any help would be fantastic!!!

Wrong arcade to install,
search above for Arcade, All versions, title only. You will see ibproarcade for vb4, it is also for vb3.8.
Check out my arcade, filled with edits by stangger5 and over 20,000 games with many more to install.
National Arcade Competition Club- NACC All arcade edits will work on vb4.
Check out my heavily modified ibproarcade with over 50,000 games for you, free of charge!
Exclusive arcade addons, edits and skins were made by stangger5 owner of Next Level Arcade
