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.

[QUOTE=webgroup]Ok, an update on the challenge problem:

I'm having the same problem, the challenge bar is not appearing below users posts, but its appearing on the user profile link, on the post, when you click on the username, you'll see the games that user has won, and you can challenge him there! At least its working fine.

Any idea on how to make it appear on the bar below every post?

thanks![/QUOTE

I'm not seeing the challenge bar at all anywhere.

users have to have the 'allow challenges' tickbox selected in UserCP, otherwise you can't challenge that user anywhere... the challenge user box is there only if they allow themselves to be challenged



now, next problem... lol
One of my members is playing, and he is not getting his name in the highscores, it appears as
[blank]
[game name] Champion

and in the arcade home where it has latest winners, it says 'Unregistered is the new [game_name] champion'...

It the arcade for some reason is not seeing this user as an actual member of the forum... For now it's only happening for him...

Any suggestions?

Nanaca Crash has been converted and is available on the games site. I am refraining from posting any more games here due to recent requests from vB.org staff to remove games that have been posted. I am working on the other requests.

how do I know which I'm using? postbit vs postbit_legacy?

as well I put the code in both postbit and postbit_legacy seperatly and together with now luck.

Challenge system is not working.
postbit_legacy is where all the user info is on the left side of the screen in tread view..old school

<-------- Like this site does.

postbit is the when all of the users info runs along the top above their post and it is settable in acp>VBoptions>styleand launguge theres an option to switch. HTH

now off to install this myself

Since the v3Arcade site is down for down, does anyone know the fix for this message:

Uncached templates: arcade_award_bit

Thanks

I've got Nanaca Crash working on mine (ibpro game import) of it. Most of my games are IBPro games that Ive imported. I need to get some packs of them together and rarred up, and put somewhere for download. I have around 60 odd games on my forums, plus around 700 games overall (not all work with v3 - and since Ive gotten most from other sites, I'm not fully sure on the legalities of them either).

Try re-uploading the arcade.php file. That fixed my one issue (something got messed up somehow, dunno how, but reloading it, fixed it).


As for games, are we allowed to post links for downloads here, or not? I can link several IBPro sites that have games, which is where I get most of mine, but I am allowed to post said links here?

v3arcade games are being hosted at one location that is free of charge with no limit on how many you can download. I cannot speak for others. This site will eventually have ibPro games as well after all v3 games have been processed.

http://www.vbulletingames.com

ibPro links are being posted, so I am assuming it is going to be allowed here as well.
