v3 Arcade is now a member of the vBadvanced family!

http://www.vbadvanced.com/forum/showthread.php?t=47571

The support forums & data from v3Arcade.com have been merged into the vBadvanced.com site.



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

Please note... until v3Arcade.com 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.

Supports MochiAds, v3 Arcade and IBPArcade games!
  • Download THOUSANDS of *legal* free and premium games directly from Mochi Media to your v3 Arcade installation. Earn money from people playing games on your site! With just a few mouse clicks you download games directly from within your ACP or from the Mochi Media web site. You have to check it out it to see just how easy it is.
  • Tournaments! Challenge your friends to see who the champ is!
  • Integrated arcade statistics on your user's profile pages!
  • 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
  • A slick, professional layout.
  • Edit-free template updates!
  • User ability to specify viewing resolution while playing games.
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)
=================================
Branding Free
=================================
All v3 Arcade installations carry and require a small "v3 Arcade" logo in the footer, as well as the text "Powered by v3 Arcade" which links to http:www.v3arcade.com. For information on legally removing the branding, please visit www.v3arcade.com.

Hi Gemma

I installed v3 after most of my members were already here, so if the initial default is to have no notifications, and there is no way to change that globally then I guess the database query is the only option. Maybe in a future upgrade it could be set the same way that admins can globally change the challenge permissions to force all members to allow challenges initially. Just a thought.

Back here in the present, though, I tried looking through the database to find the table that holds the settings so I could run the query as you suggested, and can't find the one that holds these settings. Do you happen to know which table these settings reside?

Thanks

That is something you would need to ask the developers about. Due to the lack of activity from Brian I am unsure whether we will ever see an update of the arcade

I'm assuming there is settings stored in the database. I'll have a look later and let you know

Ok, some super-crazy combinations here. I've not worked them all out and I'd advise you to probably set everything to YES then let your members switch off as desired. Here are the queries I managed to determine.

Everything to YES

UPDATE `user` SET `arcadeoptions` = '1023'

Allow Challenges set to YES


UPDATE `user` SET `arcadeoptions` = '1'

Allow Challenges and Auto-Accept set to YES

UPDATE `user` SET `arcadeoptions` = '3'

Allow Challenges, Auto Accept, Email Notification and Tournament Events

UPDATE `user` SET `arcadeoptions` = '519'

Allow Challenges, Auto Accept, Use Email, Use PM and Tournament Events

UPDATE `user` SET `arcadeoptions` = '527'

Allow Challenges, Auto Accept, Use Email, Use PM, High Score Beaten, When Challenged and Tournament Events

UPDATE `user` SET `arcadeoptions` = '575'

Everything EXCEPT Email Notifications Set To YES

UPDATE `user` SET `arcadeoptions` = '1019'

So has vbAdvanced dropped this mod? If there are no updates, then vb5 will essentially kill it off. Not good news for us Arcade Junkies!

Thanks again for going the extra mile to create that query. It is a big help in getting things hopping again with the games.

This and Current Version: 2.0.3 (Released 06-08-2011) nailed the coffin shut for me... Unfortunately will be porting to another developers arcade with whom I seem to be running more and more of their software....

I've no idea what vB Advanced plans are for the arcade or their own products, this is just my opinion but it doesn't look very promising. The lack of activity on their site is worrying. The arcade should have been updated when vB 4.2 came out to address the navigation changes and there are bugs in the system that need fixed. There are individual posts here that will fix everything but it really should all be working out of the box.

Saying that though - this, again in my opinion, is still the best and most stable arcade system.........it just lacks the required support which leaves a cloud over future production.

I agree with Gemma. It is a good system and the only one that will play Mochi Games. Which completely removes the effort of finding legal arcade games that users can play.

DragonBytes vBArcade will play these as well.

Streamlined import and editing managers put games from mochi, armor, kongregate, v3arcade, ibproarcade and more into your arcade with ease

As you can see from the 2 screen shots I provided the text Tournaments awaiting players is not showing when logged out. Only when logged in. How can I fix this?

Thanks.

Actually, the main reason I'm running two arcades is because DBT's wasn't stable - I had major issues with games scoring and playing over various browsers. But this isn't a thread for discussing other arcade systems so we'll stop there.

Hello Gemma -

As an fyi, I ran the queries you provided above. The email notifications and pms now both work. Thanks for coming up with that. I know it wasn't easy.

Is there a way to allow guests to view and play games but their scores will/would not be recorded?
