With ibProArcade you don't have to pay anything to participate in Development and straightly put your ideas into the Project :)


Feel free to post any idea here in this thread, describe what you want, how it should work ect. and please no discussion only suggestions
That makes it more easy for me to sort through it, I later will edit the postings and mark things that got implemented ect.

It would be pretty cool if it shows the games you have a high score in, in your profile.

ps: Where do you download games, I have been looking like crazy :P

I'm not sure if this bug fix made it to 2.5.6+ (cause I haven't upgraded yet), but
- "Leader of Leaderboard" updating automatically

I'm tired of doing this couple of times every day from ACP. Every time someone makes it to the top 10 it goes wrong..

Stifmeister2: that has been fixed in 2.5.6+

Zia: He is in the process of this and announced it will be out in 2.6.0+ (which should be the next version)

:banana: ETA for 2.5.7+ pleaseeeeeeeee??

MrZeropage
17 May 2006, 06:09
same procedure as everytime - no ETA for any Release (I am not John ;))
I will start development of next version about next week :)

What else can you put in here!!! Maybe more ways to give points, for some reason my users are still getting thousands of points even though i set it so if they get highschool they only get 20 points. Not sure how the points are tallied up so i really dont know how to set the points up yet.

Oh actually there is one thing, well two.

One would be to stop some games from auto submitting the score. not sure if thats possible. If you can add a page with a button before submitting or something.

And some kind of bug where sometimes you get a score of -1 for some reason. Its when you exit the game early or just get 0 on the game the game submits the score.

MrZeropage
17 May 2006, 07:52

The ability to delete the best Score of all Time if you so desire to so, as they wont clear now, especially if somebody cheats. You have to delete and then reinstall the game to do this function now.

Stifmeister2
24 May 2006, 13:33
Ummm.. Weird. I can delete those scores with no problems.

torvue
24 May 2006, 18:58
best Score of all Time doesnt empty

actual Highscore Champion does empty ok

All personal Scores empty ok


Just cannot get rid of the best Score of All Time Section, withour deleting game and then reinstalling, I think the information of best Score of all Time is now contained in the Games List Tables.

Neo_obs
24 May 2006, 19:01
it is you can delete it just by emptying 2 fields in the games_list table I believe bestscore and bestmid

Stifmeister2
26 May 2006, 21:21
It would be cool if you could name your tournaments yourself. Now they're just "{gamename} Tournamtnt" or something like that.

I'd just like to make my own names for tourneys. :)

Allow admins to access the arcade even when its not active.

VietLang
21 Jun 2006, 07:12
I can think of a few:

- Award vBux points for top 10 high scores, not just highest scores. Admin has the ability to set all of these numbers.

- Can receive gifts/items rewards, not just vBux points

- Add few more default games

- Creating different teams/clans and have each clan challenge each other in a tournament.
- - - Private or public clans
- - - Jackpot amount can be divided equally to all clan members or each member recieve the jackpot amount
- - - Hidden traps/tricks other clan members or regular members. Recieve vBux if successful, loose points if fail.

- Bank robery (complement to the theft system in vBux/vbPlaza)
- Gift/items robery

Maybe the last two features belong to the vBux/vbPlaza, not obProArcade.

templated!!!

would love to be able to move stuff around without major edits and messing stuff up.

(eg: announcment and tournament infor area at the top).

---MAD---
22 Jun 2006, 11:39
Delete games that are checked from the games list.

When there is a tie first in the high score champions, the second person gets a 3rd place trophy which is wrong. He/she should get a second place trophy :)

kall
24 Jun 2006, 02:22
Ability to store .swf files and .zips outside of the public webroot, like at the same level as 'public_html'.

This would make it harder (impossible?) for people to leech the files.

wish:
pnflashgame & v3's .zip game converter..

tho v3 to ibpor converter is near abt to finish..
if there a game converter with in ibproarcade..would be too kool

MrZeropage
24 Jun 2006, 11:57
What do you mean with "zip-game converter" ?
ZIP-Games from v3arcade are already supported...

about the converter: you mean it should be integrated in the ibPro-Installer, so it detects installed v3arcade and converts the games ect ?

---MAD---
24 Jun 2006, 15:02
Arcade FAQ could explain what the leader board, champions, king of arcade are. Could also have stuff like "why cant i play certain games in certain catagories". All these should off course go on the arcade nav, not main FAQ i dont think.

Maybe able to choose how many newest/most popular games to show up via admin cp.

---MAD---
28 Jun 2006, 21:55
- Ability to hide catagories from users that cant play games in them
- Ability to postion annoucements above "The arcade".
- Improve the ratings pop up menu and if possible change it to AJAX.
- Less space between Game boxes on the arcade home page (ibp style)

---MAD---

Prune all zero scores from arcade.

Neo_obs
30 Jun 2006, 06:09
you can actually do this userself but yes i believe it would be nice to have more score features


and on a side note can we have a timeline on when features will be implemented? Like maybe show that this feature comes before this one and it will be released with this version. All unofficial that is.

MrZeropage
30 Jun 2006, 08:27
I won't tell any release-date, feature-list or development-timeplan.

I think we all know where this can lead, there are other projects that totally spoiled it doing this ;)


Be sure each release of ibProArcade comes along with good, new and innovative feature and will improve the whole project. Just check the release-history...


ibProArcade v2.5.7+ is in development, the to-do-list is somehow long but will surely be loved by you :cool:



@MAD:
Why do you want to prune all ZERO scores ? The Arcade should not save any (after some small fix in v2.5.7+ ;))



What kind of score-tools or -functions do you want ? Please suggest !

---MAD---
30 Jun 2006, 10:09
Suggestion 1

Leader board names should have colour tags on them. So say if red is for admin, the admins should be red on the leader board. Same should happen if you are a champion of a certain game.

Suggestion 2

Arcade mod cp should have less tables. The mod notes doesnt need to be in its own table.

The whole mod cp shouldnt have a table background and should just use the forum background to keep it clean and neat.

Suggestion 3

The arcade settings should look like the rest of vbulletin settings. If you have a look at user cp option settings they look very neat, orginised and professional.

Suggestion 4

You shouldnt be able to rate a game from the home page. Instead rate the game after submitting a score.

Suggestion 5

Instead of text for "Add game to fav" maybe use a picture? It should make the arcade home page more attractive.

Suggestion 6

Center the text in the catagory cells. It doesnt look very nice when its to the left whilest the game boxes are all centered ;).

icemanic
06 Jul 2006, 21:03
i have a suggestion that was just given to me by one of my mods:

a feature to delete all scores / traces of a user in the arcade from the leaderboard...maybe this can be incorporated
this is useful for big forums

MrZeropage
07 Jul 2006, 06:36
You already can delete all scores of a specific user :)

Enter AdminCP -> Score Tools and search for that user. Then you will see all scores that user did - "mark all" and remove them ...

Only thing missing (and already on to-do-list for next version): also remove the "best results ever" of this user

Neo_Angelo
07 Jul 2006, 21:38
my Suggestions if they haven't already been said would be:

Suggestion 1:

Allow multiple games in tournements instead of just one

Suggestion 2:

Allows more than 8 players in a tournement, maybe add a box to enter figures into the tournament.

Suggestions 3:

Remove the Enter User ID of person you wish to enter in a tournament and have usernames instead as its much easier.

Suggestion 4:

allow users to rate games even if they don't have a score on that game.

Suggestion 5:

allow games to be put into more than one catagory.

Suggestion 6:

Make the arcades layout even better than it already is, its nice at the moment but i'm sure something could be done to improve it further.

and great job on your hard work. i love your arcade to pieces. *thumbs up*

Neo_obs
08 Jul 2006, 09:29
to continue on the tournament features maybe you can have it so you dont need to enter usernames or ids (leaving field blank) and then it will just let members sign up.

jilly
09 Jul 2006, 15:43
Tournament:

1. After you create a tournament, have a link to take you back to the main page - right now, it just loads up the 'create tournament' page again.

2. When creating a tournament, allow the creator the option to 'invite' members to join it.

MrZeropage
09 Jul 2006, 16:02
Invitation is a nice idea :cool:

icemanic
10 Jul 2006, 08:05
i dunno if this is already somehow in there, but after someone wins a tournament, maybe a trophy of some sort in their profile, or a tally of how many tournaments that have been won, etc
expanding on the tournament features would be great as it really cranks up the competiveness of people

MrZeropage
10 Jul 2006, 09:45
there already is information about how many tournaments are won in the postbit-info ... :)

Zia
11 Jul 2006, 10:39
Invitation is a nice idea :cool:

i think "challange" system would be more nice than invite....

both servs the same motto

---MAD---
11 Jul 2006, 14:59
@neo angelo
I dont think users without a score should be able to rate games..how would they know if the game is any good? ;). Maybe have a global option if this is implement to turn it off.

I also think that the after score submitted page (on the hi scores), there should be options to rate the game their instead of the arcade main page. This could clean up the main arcade page :).

jilly
16 Jul 2006, 23:34
dont know if this would take too many queries, but it would nice to have a text total of the current amount of games someone has won in postbit.

Something like

Current Highscores: 34

and it would change as they won/lost more scores,,,

Here's some tournament ideas.

1. In admincp set the number of hours that a tournament will "wait" for players to complete their game. (For example, 72 hours) - all in increments of 24 hours to make it easy.

2. Once a member joins a tournament, if 24 hours goes by and they haven't played their game, they get a reminder PM:

1st Reminder - Pingu Slap Tournament (name of tournament goes here - Pingu Slap my sample game )
This is a reminder that you have entered the Pingu Slap Tournament, but have not yet played your game. You have 72 more hours to play your game, or you will be disqualified from this tournament. Click here to go play your game!

then, after 24 more hours:

2nd Reminder - Pingu Slap Tournament
This is a reminder that you have entered the Pingu Slap Tournament, but have not yet played your game. You have 48 more hours to play your game, or you will be disqualified from this tournament. Click here to go play your game!


then, after 24 more hours:

3rd Reminder - Pingu Slap Tournament
This is a reminder that you have entered the Pingu Slap Tournament, but have not yet played your game. You have 24 more hours to play your game, or you will be disqualified from this tournament. Click here to go play your game!

then if they do not play, they get automatically disqualified, and receive this message:

Time-Out Disqualification - Pingu Slap Tournament
We are sorry to inform you that you have been disqualified from the Pingu Slap Tournament for failure to complete your game. If you are having technical difficulties with the arcade, please let us know!

Look for more tournaments to join again soon, or start your own, and good luck! Click here to view available tournaments or start your own

````````````````````````````````````

This goes for each level in the tournament - so for the first game they have to play, the clock starts and they get their reminders - then if they play and win, and advance to the next level, the clock starts again, and the reminder pm's start again - until they either play or are disqualified - etc.. If they lose or are disqualified in some other way, then they get the normal notification pm


=======================================

Winner notification to all tournament members
>Would be nice if, once a tournament is over, all the participants in the tournament could recieve a notification PM

Pingu Slap Tournament - Winner jilly!
Congratulations to jilly, winner of the Pingu Slap Tournament!
We hope you enjoyed playing in this tournament.

I just started coding such a Tournament-Reminder-System three days ago, so if everything proceeds well this will be a feature of v2.5.7+ :)

good suggestion, thx !

Sorry :(

18 Jul 2006, 22:45
Another Tournament suggestion.

when you click the tournament link to view all available tournaments, it would be nice to have a link there for 'create a tournament' -

in the meantime, is there a template i can modify to go ahead and just stick the text link in myself? :)

jilly
21 Jul 2006, 00:46
another tournament related idea :)

1. Is there a way to see 'finished' tournaments and who won them?

If there is, it would also be nice if where it says "Tournaments Won" in your postbit, that it would be a link to show you the 'finished' and won tournaments..

MrZeropage
21 Jul 2006, 07:33
when you click the tournament link to view all available tournaments, it would be nice to have a link there for 'create a tournament' done for v2.5.7+

Is there a way to see 'finished' tournaments and who won them?Yes, already included this ;)
Look on Arcade-Mainpage in the Tournament-Block, there is "x finished tournaments" - there you can see all finished tournaments and their winners.
/arcade.php?&do=viewtourneyend

If there is, it would also be nice if where it says "Tournaments Won" in your postbit, that it would be a link to show you the 'finished' and won tournaments..Good idea (again) :)

Gemma
21 Jul 2006, 10:22
Better visualisation of the number of posts required before playing in the arcade would be helpful :)

Jus now we have the All-time Highscore,on the highscore page and in the game block,but could it be expanded on to show the length of time each All-time Highscore has stood for (on a separate page if possible?)

:)

MrZeropage
21 Jul 2006, 14:59
nice ideas all over the places, thank you VERY much :)

jilly
22 Jul 2006, 03:42
here's more!

I might have suggested some of these before, if I did, ignore me and send me coffee!!


> When you create a tournament - there is no conformation page - should be something that pops up saying "You have created a Pingu Tournament for 4 players with 2 tries each. Your tournament is now active and waiting for players.
And then it takes you back to where it does now, the 'create a tournament' page, so you can create another tournament.

> On that same page of tournament creation, there should be a link to:
A - go back to the main aracade
B - view all active tournaments
in case you dont want to create any more tournaments


> on the Create a tournament function - the ability to 'invite' your buddies of choice at the time of creation

> Once a tournament is created, if you go view a tournament, and you want to invite your friend, because you know she likes that game but probably hasnt just seen it yet, you can click on an 'invite player' link, and then put in the username, and the Arcade System sends that user a PM saying they have been invited into the Pingu Slap Tournament, with a link included for joining.

> On the main tournament page, you can view active tournaments and tournaments waiting for players - it would also be good to have a link to "Finished Tournaments", which would display the tournament name, the date it was finished, and who won it.

> Giving your tournament a custom name.
When creating a tournament, it would be cool to give it a custom name - for example right above the choice of what game the tournament is going to be about, there would be a name field, give us like 120 characters or maybe 240 - and we could name the tournament something like 'jilly's ultimate Pingu Slap Down Challenge'
or
"jilly's frosty christmas tetris ball"
it would make getting an invitation more colorful - "You've been invited to jilly's frosty christmas tetris ball" :)

jilly
23 Jul 2006, 13:35
Another Tournament Suggestion:

Have a tournament announcement at the top of the arcade, and also on the top of the tournament information page, starting who needs to play their game for the tournmanet to continue.

For example, if Pingu Slap is currently waiting for one person to finish their game so the next round can be advanced too, the tournament announcement area would show:

Pingu Slap Tournament - the following players need to complete their games to advance: memberA, memberB, and memberC

Virus2 Tournament - the following players need to complete their games to advance: memberD, memberX

Tetris Tournament - the following player needs to complete their game to advance: memberW

possibly these values could be pulled form the same area that the 'reminder' system will use - i.e. when a member is in the 'reminder' cue, their name shows up - and once they play their game, they drop off.. unless they go to the next round, and then their name will pop up again, as the system waits for them to play their game

This would also be helpful with the 'custom name' of the Tournament allowed, so if you have 3 Pingu Slap tournaments going on at the same time, it would be easier for players to remember which Pingu Slap tournament they are in..

24 Jul 2006, 19:15
My only recommendation is to put the templates into the AdminCP where they should be and have them use the styles. It is a great product aside from that.

icemanic
25 Jul 2006, 11:40
how about a option where we can select 5 or so games and have them 'featured' on the homepage somewhere, this is good for those with lots of games,

or a flip side, is expand the random game option to have 5 random games featured all the time, even during the gameplay screen, this way users can jump from game to game

jilly
30 Jul 2006, 16:38
Ok, my members are really using and enjoying the tournament mode - one thing they said (and maybe it's already said in the thread here - but i didnt see it), is that they would like more notification pm's of everythign that happens - for example, you get a pm once the tournament is full - they would like to get pm's for these events too:

* when an opponent has completed all their tries, so they know they need to do or finish theirs up too

* when it's time for their try because an opponent dropped out, disqualified, etc. (already discussed, reminder system)

* when they have moved up to the next level because their opponent lost, or was disqualified

* when they've been eliminated from a tournament, because their score was beaten, or they were disqualified

* when the torunament is over, telling them the name of the tournament and who won

They also would like:
* an option to drop themselves out of a tournament

* an option to delete a tournament they started

* A place on arcade home saying what tournaments are in progress, and who is ahead, for example:

"jilly is the currrent leader in the Pingu Slap Tournament"
with the words Pingu Slap Tournament a link to the tournament itself or the tournament section

* a shoutbox or comment box in the tournament area, something where they or any onlookers can nicely goad or encourage each other, depending on the match :)
* some way to join leagues or teams, and then when they choose to join a tournament, they join it as the 'blue' league, and if it's a 4 game player match, then the blue league gets two slots and the red league gets two slots, and they play blue again red, etc. I know that's a bit more complicated - just something to keep in mind..

Stifmeister2
01 Aug 2006, 18:27
Some kind of time limit for Tournaments. I hate when people don't play and the tournament stays active for months.

Some kind of setup which allows the creator of the tournament to put a time limit (days or hours) for each round. After the time is up the one who hasn't yet played will be automatically disqualified.


More players for tournaments. 16 would be fine. :)

jilly
06 Aug 2006, 14:46
When a user creates a tournament, is it possible for then to 'donate' or pay for the jackpot using the vstore vbux? For example I want to make a roulette tournament, with 100,000 vbux as the jackpot = I dont necessarily make them want to pay anything to join, or maybe 15 or 50 points, or something - and then whoever wins the tournament gets the vbux prize automatically?

MrZeropage
06 Aug 2006, 16:05
tournament-participation has static costs which directly go into the jackpot.

8 players paying 100 bucks each result in a 800-bucks-jackpot

Neo_obs
11 Aug 2006, 00:16
New Idea could you possibly add the date the tournament ended to the arcade modcp?



-----------------------------------EDIT

Also would it be possible to add some sort of comment system for each tournament? So like if 1 player is going to be gone or something they can type it in (like a shoutbox) and it will appear at the bottom of the tournament page only?

Barteken
25 Aug 2006, 18:31
well on my forum I have one member who is really a freak (a very good one) he has almost every highscore on every game. Is it possible to add a future so one member can only have x highscores because one member with every highscore isn't really fun for the others...

feature request / wish list:
use the vbulletin inherited permission system so that people using secondary usergroups don't have to redo their whole forum setup.

make an administration page accessible to usergroups/users that the admins choose. (so others can help install games, etc)

28 Sep 2006, 22:18
I third or fourth or fith the suggestion to have bigger tournaments. 8 is too small. 16 would be a good start.

Also the ability to add people to a tournament via username as well as ID.

A time limit would also be good. A setting that says you have so many hours, or days to play or you are disqualified.

The ability to set how many new games show up in the new games list as well as the top games list.

ohhh....

Good Ideas! ;)


Also, I noticed the other arcade has this add-on that allows admin to set a daily drop in all scores, by percentage. I love this idea. I have my scores auto-pruned to give others a chance, but this is way better I think. Say you set it to 10%, then the score drop by 10% per day lowering the top score and giving players a chance to beat it. It also provides incentive to keep playing as your score drops. :D

Thanks Again Mr. ZeroPage. Great Stuff.

Admin - Ability to upload games without having to ftp access your server (So you just upload to pretty much an attachment that will place it in the games folder)

tournament - Ability to make private tournaments that require a password to enter.

tournament - large scale tournaments (could be up to 128 players) where it is swiss rounds (rounds depend on number of players joined). Then a cut to top 8 where they play round robin from there on out.

12 Oct 2006, 08:16
Thanks for the Arcade. I love it!

As already mentioned, a tournament password so only invited players can take part, and the idea mentioned above about slowly clipping scores so they drop over time, a superb idea.

Group Tournaments
Members can create/join a group and there can be group tourneys.

Add-ons
When uploading the .xml it comes equipped with who is playing what game and for how long on the Whose Online link. Also the Top 5 newest games on the Forum Home might be cool as well.

Tournament Participants
I don't think that would be added though would be a cool add on. If a member joins a tournament and doesn't play after so long they get banned or fined so many points until they actually play,lol

Not sure if this was mentioned already but a link to play again on the right hand side of the game would be nice for the games that don't have play again button in the game only submit button. This way you don't need to submit to get to the play again or go back and forth. The refresh does not work very will for restarting the game either.

Just my 2 cents

Cheers

Hi,

Example: http://www.nepalhub.com/arcade.php

Once a certain number of games are added, there is no need for new games, and also hard to find. So if possible, on the right hand side, left hand side, where "newest games" and "most played games" are shown, a possibility to show "random games" too .. and also the possibility to show 4-5 random games on other domains which others can include in their website and send gamers to the arcade.


Also, a points system that awards points only if somone else's record is broken. There are some players that keep on breaking their own record and in the same games. An award system when someone else's record is broken will make players try all games.

I'd like to put another one in for an upgraded tournament feature. 2, 4, 6, 8, 10....hell...make it user selectable if possible. The current feature set is pretty limited for it right now...

This is a fantastic product, by the way. I use the arcade tournament feature for montly give-aways...like movie-tickets and t-shirts...so I really appreciate this feature and so do my users! Thanks!

control number of icon POSTBIT CROWNS displayed (random or alpha or by date)

why?
-- marquee cause too much slow down (esp. vertical in FF)
-- icons are great...except for those members that have like ton of highscores (one has 100+crowns), postbit get ridiculous.

--ie: I have no option but to remove it. but I LOVE IT. so if I could just display like 8 (or whatever) crowns icons (new condensed ones are perfect size) across random order. that would allow me to display them, but not kill the postbit. :)

Alter table name idea

Current New Tables installed for the arcade are:

games_settings
games_savedGames
games_league
games_scores
games_list
games_cats
games_champs
tournament_players
tournaments
badwords
macro

Re-name with games_ prefix ?

games_tournament_players
games_tournaments
games_badwords
games_macro

I was working on a add-on and figured the "tournament" tables would be with the rest of the games_ prefix.

I don't know what you expect for a free addon, but support is given here from me when time permits and in other cases the community helps.

The "premium" section is for those bigger modifications that have alot of users (like ibProArcade has over 1800 installations) where support within the thread of the modification itself would be impossible - so within that seperate section real support is possible with having threads per problem ect.

I am posting a very important suggestion for ibProArcade system..

Please give us an option to edit user's scores via arcade admincp, and/or Arcade ModCP because sometime user's score not saving and users requesting me again n again to update their score, currently i am editing user's score via phpMyAdmin, its very hard for me to go to phpMyAdmin again n again, i am tired really,
So please give me an option in admincp to edit user scores.

- AdminCP -> New Games Today

There is a sort by date added, I'd also like a "list games added today". This week would be OK too.

For the private messages, how about they sort into a special folder by default? They create a lot of PM noise if you have a large arcade. If you could filer to each users arcade folder (create it if necessary) that would be nice.

In the arcade home with the 5 blocks for 1,2,3 leaders etc.. how about a 6th to even it out?
You can have an award for "on fire" the person who's increased their points the most in the last 24hrs.

When in the arcade home page, it will say "best score of all time : XX" "Actual highscore : YY". When you are playing a game, on the right side it says "Score to beat : XX" I would like it to show "YY" instead of "XX". Please either make this an option or make this the default. IMO, it should be the default.

I have a couple of suggestions..

Firstly awesome job. the arcade is my users favorite feature.. now some things to make our and i think other boards a bit more friendly.

The tournament section seems to have attracted alot of attention thruout this forum my first suggestion is for that..

We have a tournament master who sets up and watches over the tournaments keeps the reminders if a player doesnt play in x amount of time etc...

Our problem is that he is auto entered in every tournament he sets up and does not always want to participate... We would like his joining to be a choice ..

Also if a member chooses to opt out prior to all the postions to be filled there is no way to delete that player... He can be replaced but not removed. . removal would make it simpler for the Arcade manager.

We would like user group permissions to have the option of Arcade modCP permissions.. so they dont have mod priveledges in the main forums but they do in the arcade.

We have several that want to create and monitor tourneys .. challenges etc.. but have to rely on admin for all changes etc....they need access to the arcade cp but not our full acp.


Many of the previous posts are great ideas. the pm auto reminder is great id like to see it only as a one time thing for each level tho.. and an auto dq if they do not complete in x days
make that part of the tournament set up

Thank you in advance for considering our requests

Can you please add transparent code to the flash templates?
I am using a css menu and normally the flash games are on top and the menu is in the background.
To prevent the arcade from doing so pls. add this to all the places where this appears:

You can add a line of HTML to the Flash HTML that causes the flash to be "transparent" when interacting with the nav menu. The line is:

<param name="wmode" value="transparent">

This can be lumped together with the other "param" lines in your Flash HTML code.

You also have to add a parameter to your "embed" tag. The parameter is wmode="transparent". Therefore, a complete embed tag may look like this:

<embed src="flash.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="100" height="100" wmode="transparent"></embed>

--ie: I have no option but to remove it. but I LOVE IT. so if I could just display like 8 (or whatever) crowns icons (new condensed ones are perfect size) across random order. that would allow me to display them, but not kill the postbit. :)

This is exactly what I need urgently on my forum. A couple of my members now have the hiscores in over 100 games and so their postbit is really long and makes their posts very large, even if they have only posted a single line of text in the actual post.

It would be perfect if we could set the total number of games to show in the postbit, and then to have a link under this to show all hiscores this member has. This would work well with the other suggestions given to show a member's hiscores in their profile. That way you could show the last 10 or so hiscore crown icons in th postbit, and a link under going to the member's profile saying "more >>" or something. This would work much better than currently having all of them in the postbit or nothing at all.

Please allow an option for "King of the Arcade" or other more robust arcade ranking things in postbits. Would appreciate especially 1st/2nd/3rd trophies. Someone elsewhere asked for way to link to alternate trophy icon(s), that would be excellent in addition to this but I personally would probably just replace the gifs -- though a different size for postbit and for arcade front would be boss.

well, by using new v32 and v33 games it very hard (impossible?) to cheat using that extension in firefox, as the score gets encrypted and verified with some data stored in the database corresponding to the gamesession, so I think it does not really help to adapt the data with the ff-extension as the score itself will be invalid.

Anybody there to verify that ?

Hmm I could probably test it if I can find a v32/v33 game...

No offense, but the amount of V32/V33 games out there are extremely miniscule...and some of the games that aren't V32/V33 are very, very good or classic games that people like to play. If I had to remove all of them, then my arcade would end up being really, really weak. It's sad that we have to make a decision like that thanks to all of these cheaters. :(

It would be helpful to have additional maintenance functions added for tournaments. Many tournaments don't get completed because someone enters and doesn't play. A setting to disqualify a player from a tournament who doesn't play in 'X' days would help. There should also be a setting to purge old tournaments.

Sorry if this has already been discussed but I recently converted to ibroarcade and I must say I am very glad I did. And I am sorry I didn't give it a try sooner. Anyway I'd like to suggest some way of mass installing large amount of games. I found some 700mb pack at vb-faq thx to Deejay Dan for posting it, and it is taking me days to install. If I try more games it is gonna give me error that "Length parameter must be greater than 0" and if I try really higher number of games it gets database error. So it would be nice to have mass install option choosing a number of games to process per batch. It doesn't matter if it takes few hours as long as it is automatic process that is not gonna take me sitting there and clicking install.

If you are playing in a large arcade it's hard or at least annoying tracking down the games you have not played or do not have a 1st place in. I though it would nifty if in the same box you can sort by date added, name, etc, if you could also sort by "Games I have not played" and "Games that I'm not the champion in". Call them what you like, but that's the functionality.

An alternative to this would be to check if there are any stuck games every time a tournament is viewed.


Also I think:
"Score Tools > Update the Best Results"
should replace the best score ever even if it is lower than the current high score

Not sure if it is mentioned already, but it would be nice to have direct link to a game listed on main page in "newests champions". So that people can easily try to beat a score if they see something interesting there. Instead of searching for the game if total number of games is high.

I'm sure this gets requested a lot. But being able to change the orientation of the tables that display the game instructions would be nice. I did this manually, but it would nice to have a admin option, so I don't have to redo it with every update.

Also, maybe this is just me, I've never understood why all these game mods have to have the top scores, the most recent games, the most played games and all that table info on every page. If there were an option to show it on just the index page, and have all the category listings on separate pages without having to scroll to the bottom, then I'd love that. As it is, I kind of have to put indications that games are listed at the bottom of each page, and I think, from a design sense point-of-view, that's not the most efficient design.

Last but not least, there seems to be an aversion to uploading games to these download sites with a clear and concise list of game-play instructions. I don't know if it's possible, but if there were some way for the in-game instructions to be "read" during install and then posted in The Controls or Object section, I think that would be a plus for the modfication.

This has probably been mentioned before, but in order to rate a game, you have to add it as a favorite. So if you are rating a game low, you are essentially saying 'this is one of my favorite games and it sucks.' This is strange right? Favorite and Rating should be independent of one another in my opinion. Thanks.

Oh sorry man! I didn't see that, thanks. I was thinking it would be nice to have it in the game list but I see now that the idea is that they have to play it once to rate it. Although, I have a number of games installed that are not IBPA integrated so no score submit, and therefore no opportunity to rate it without making it a favorite. Now that I know where it is I could add that bit to the game skin though. Thanks again.

Some essential options...
1. allow secondary usergroups when setting usergroup permissions - at the current setup, you need separate primary usergroup for those who are privileged to create tourney games
2. enable/disable view highscores/tourney wins in memberinfo (profile page) - this is an alternative way of acknowledging your members efforts if they managed to highscore 50+ games and you want to show all those games without compromising your server load (instead of postbit)

Is there a way to work into the arcade a method to check to see if the game is installed already??


On the invision version, it checks to see if the game is installed.

most have a TON of games installed, and when I install some game packs (mutliple games) it just makes duplicate copies of the games..

So I have a few copies of certain games...

I think it would be nice to have it so the games are checked for dups when you install them..

MortysTW
27 Sep 2007, 16:47
Ya, when you are in teh AdminCP doing the install, it says INSTALLED next to it, therefore there isn't an INSTALL link, instead it says UNINSTALL.

But if you are getting repeats, its because more than one person mod'd the same game and something is slightly different about it enough that no arcade script is intelligent enough to know how to play the game and realize they are the same, just named different.

If you get the same score as your highest so far, your new info should be saved to the database. This allows you to change your comment, and reduce the time played. A basic fix is easy: change the > and < on this line to >= and <=.
if ( (($player_score > $score) && $ginfo['highscore_type'] == "high") || (($player_score < $score && $ginfo['highscore_type'] == "low") && $score != 0) )

MrZeropage, following needs to be looked into

1) The disqualification problem. The 7 day rule is not properly enforrced. I am giving examples.
a) Sometimes the arcade tourney gets locked when even though both the players have played the games, the winner is not advanced. In such cases we are shown a link to "make winner advance". Now if the faceoff player at next level has completed his games and was waiting for this guy, and if we advanced this person a bit late, than the original waiting person gets disqualified(if his waiting period was more than 7 days) A better option would be to reset his time when we make the winner advance as he can only play when he has an opponent. The time reset should be done everythime the faceoff player is ready and not from the time one guy becomes promoted to next level as to be fair to him he didn't have anyone to play against during that time. Yes he could have played on his own but people usually wait to see opponent before playing or before completing the game quota and in those cases(see point#2 below) he will get disqualified again cos of not completing the games in 7 days.
b) Another major problem is that in case a person has say 3/3 game tourney and two guys are playing. Suppose person-A has played all three games and person B has played only 1 out of 3 but has a higher score in that then all three combined games of A, after 7 days if B doesn't complete his rest 2 games(he has no need to) B shouldn't be disqualified. As he had more score than A even though he played one game, B should be promoted and A eliminated.

Some feature requests:

I would also recommend that you have a cron maybe to check stalled tourneys that we can run say every day automatically that advances winners. This should take care of stalls.

Also i would suggest a setting in admincp to cap the maximum tournaments that can be run at any given time. People seem to be opening a lot of tourneys without finishing the older ones.

A group setting on who can take part in the tournament. (so that only active guys can)

The feature requests aren't important. But the tourney probs need a fix. People are getting a bit disillusioned by the arcade tournament's otherwise.

First off thanks for an amazing mod and all the work you put into it.

Some way to let the user challenges another user would be amazing. Where it already says what game they are playing when you hover there name in the arcade some way to challenge them on the game there playing. Would give players a lot more competition then just talking trash to each other in the high scores notes.

Also if there was some way to put the record of how many challenges won/lost in postbit/profile would improve competition too, and would drastically improve arcade activity.

I'd love to see Groups/Guilds/Clans/Teams, and the ability to use them in Group Tournaments and a separate Leaderboard, etc.

A Challenge system (seen this everywhere as a request, and I concur).

Prune all scores after top X scores (used for basic clean up, not the same as full pruning), OR the option to not save any score that doesn't get into the top X scores. Obviously, X is configurable.

A special "All Games" Category that shows every game from every category the user has rights to, and an intuitive change to the Game List View Filtering:

Right now when you click on "All" in the line, "All 0-9 A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z", you only see the current category's games, whereas clicking "A" will show all games that start with "A" across all categories. By having a special "All Games" Category, you can make the line, "All 0-9 A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z", filter the currently selected category only, be it "All Games" or "Puzzle Games", "Shooters", etc.

I'd also like to see some additions to the Game List templates:

Top X Highscore Champions, not just current High Score Champion, X is adjustable
Last Comment
Show the Category the game is listed in
Instructions/Description of game (so you don't have to pay credit to view them, or have to click on HighScores to get a description)


Add to my wish list the ability to have games appear in more than one category. Example: most holiday games would fall under multiple categories, like Holiday + Puzzle. This how "Tagging" works.

Another idea would be to implement "Rooms" (works like Categories, can be set up to allow certain usergroups access into the rooms, i.e. Premium Room, Free Play Room, etc., can't have same game in more than one room, can have separate instance of game in different rooms) and "Types" (works like Tags, i.e., games can have multiple tags, can limit usergroup access to certain tags, like Adult). I don't know if I'm explaining this correctly, but it I can think of several ways to use this.

I'd like to retain the top three High Scorers of All Time, so that after I prune scores every quarter, those who are the top 3 scorers will get to retain their titles, not just the top scorer. As far as I can tell, the King of the Arcade is the person who retains the most high scores of all time. It should be easy to award a second and third place title, or even to show a "scoreboard ranking" showing all those with High Scores of All Time, ranked from most to least.

Let's see:

I can't seem to get the Arcade Home and category pages to validate. I would like to see a future version that would pass XHTML validation so I can say my whole site passes.
A module for vBadvanced that also validates and has multiple display options.
The ability to better control the orientation of the tables on the game pages. Many games these days are 800 or more pixels wide. The side table for the description just looks odd when pressed thinned and stretched by a wide game (on a fixed width forum), with the game sitting midway down the page. I adjusted the code to get them to align bottom. But it would be nice to not have to redo that after every upgrade.
Similar to above, only this is on the arcade home. I would like to be able to orient those pages differently. Perhaps have the stats only show on the Arcade Home.
In line with the above two, how about something more straightforward, like a wholly new set of layout options (skins)? I'd even be willing to offer some HTML designs and donate them to you to work with.
When you edit a game, I think it would be nice to have it either return to the game you were editing, or return to the category you were in. Not just return to the "select filter" home.
An ESRB equivalent rating system in the Admin CP. Something that shows up in the Description and in the Game Objective section. 'E' 'T' 'M' 'Ao' etc
And this is the big one: Total elimination of the need for the page to reload to submit a score. For games that require manual submission, a small [submit score] button can be located beside the game menu, which can double as a way to ensure that all games record scores without reloading the page. Perhaps even an AJAX way of showing the score submitted successfully, like saying so, or displaying the usual rank page in a AJAX div.

I would love if when mass installing games if one game cant be install to skip to next one and then report games that dont work and auto delete them .
not stop and show error.

I let people to have the ability to remain hidden in the forum, but when they go to arcade it still shows them at the bottom of the page. Can this be fixed?

Add the option to limit the number of plays for guests/not logged in people like the other user groups have

The ability for Admin's to create a challenge and specify the participants. For example, I created a challenge and was able to change my ID to another individual. But since the other blocks are null, you cannot add a name to those blocks.

ibProArcade does not have "challenge" but "tournaments" - and those can be created in AdminCP with all predefined participants...

I just found that option and was on my way back here to edit my post. **banging head on desk**

Hey,
How about the ability to make the system 'drop' a players high score in a game if they play the game again and get a lower score? - Call it 'Boxing Title Scoring' - where, if they play and get a lower score.. they aren't the CHAMP anymore.

This has probably already been suggested, but I think it would urge others to play...

Add to this that the player with the TOP score can be challenged by anyone else.. A kind of, "I challenge you to keep your score".. if the player doesn't play within 48 hours or so.. they auto-matically lose the top score... (Of course, if someone is going to be absent for the 48 hours they could 'buy' insurance ... cost of insurance (top score in one of the other games)...

Next, add a BLING store... let users 'buy' Bling to decorate their PostBit thingie..

I mean.. c'mon!. there's tons of stuff to ADD to this game.. Hooray!
