I'm not attempting to make anything up. I'm extrapolating.

The suggestion has been that if we all give money, that will be the thing that frees up the time he's not able to give to it now. I don't believe he's been upgrading this mod for five years and not care about it's functionality or to take the time to work on it. So the only other thing you could be suggesting is that he must give time up from something else, like from a job or family, to work on this. All for a little extra dough.

My point of view is that if we all donate some money, he might find some extra time to polish this product. The money doesn't buy more time, but can be used as a motivator. A little extra tap on his shoulder saying "You're doing a damn fine job with this product, please keep it up".

I've never seen anything so ridiculous... this guy provides this addon FOR FREE. How people have the nerve to come on and complain about how the free product doesn't work on their board seems incredible to me. If you aren't happy with it then don't install it (or write your own).

Jedi - I think you're doing a fine job and hope (despite the whinging) that you keep up the good work. The members on my forum love this mod.

Very mature of you to call people ridiculous when they point their fingers on aspects of a product that needs to be improved. But I guess you are living in a relatively perfect world if this is the worst you have ever seen. You're a lucky guy, that's for sure.

If coders that release products doesn't like to get feedback then they should not release them at all.

Have there ever been any doubt that we all love this product? Are you so narrowminded that you cannot see what I mean? I have even sent Marcel money because I value this product so much, something I urge all of us to do.

I'm not the problem here, the CSS design of ibProArcade in vB4 on the other hand, is, and I hope Marcel focuses on that in a future update.

That's interesting. At what point did I say PEOPLE were rediculous?

In context to people complaining about free products, yes. There are thousands of people on here moaning and hurling abuse just because the product doesn't work for them (not just about this mod, but all of them)

Yes - I see what you mean. You're an inspiration to us all - an all round hero. Give yourself a big squishy kiss. However, my original post wasn't about you.

Sounds like someone has a case of paranoia because I never mentioned you (though you seem to have assumed it's you I'm talking about). I'm sure he will fix these things given time. But having to deal with hundreds of posts from people stupidly threatening to remove his mod because it doesn't work, is surely slowing down his progress.

I thought you meant me, sorry. Let's move on

I'm sorry again, I thought you meant me. I guess I was a little paranoid back there... hehe..

Indeed paranoia and I largely agree with you. Threatening with mod-removal is counter-productive.

It seems to me everyone here is overseeing the main concern, and that is to get that damn arcade to look like your site, so just paste this into your ARCADE.CSS and we're all happy.

And when you do, factor in that you may have heavily customize styles that may not use the default vB class names. So you'd need to edit that accordingly.

Question Just a LITTLE more help PLEASE...

Reading this thread, I hate to say a peep, since it looked like y'all were fixin' to have a lynching... but I'm 75% of the way and could use a little nudge.

First, I applied the code below, and that is what got me 75% of the way.

That worked GREAT, with only one exception, which is DARK STYLES. I use several dark styles on my site, and instead of trying to edit this in the templates PER STYLE, I'm sure there must be a way to fix this in my default PARENT templates (I'm just not sure how).

The only problem I'm having in Dark Styles, is that the bold statistical text at the bottom of the page is all BLACK "best Score of all Time", "actual Highscore Champ", "personal best Score", "Statistics", "Game-Rating"... (For the record, I'm running v4.0.2).

Screen Shot:




I don't want to hard code the text to be white, because then it won't be visible in the light styles I use.

I see that there is another method of changing the background color listed here, which I have not tried, but since I applied the code above, it looks to do the same thing.

Can anyone tell me how I can fix this?

Thanks for the code above, that was a huge step in the right direction!

By the way, I'm allergic to rope.

Thanks!
Jeff

what a classic thread lol.
1.none of the codes around the forums help my arcade at all and any of the advice given.
2.you shouldnt have to edit a thing if the arcade was compatible for vb4.
3.arcade 2.7 is NOT compatible for vb4 so the thread should not have got moved to vb4 forum.

now when new comers start looking back through the arcade thread in vb4 for support, its going to be very confusing for them.

mr zero has been working on the new version of the arcade for awhile now, last i read he was having trouble with the new vbulletin front page/cmps, some coding problem to submit scores, him saying the new vbulletin is so different.

just think, IPBoads arcade was just released the other day, the new version of IP.Boards has been out for a bloody long time, a long time members had to go without an arcade.

hopefully its just a matter of time before something is released.

and who ever donated that $100, that was very nice of you to do that for us all, you would think it would help, bloody hope so. thanks m8
