I'm interested in using this Arcade system, but I'm having 2 issues.

One is the obvious IE problems, which has already been mentioned for the most part.

The second, could there possibly be a way in the future to set a global "max" width for flash games? I see there's an option for the max for the increase/decrease options after the flash game loads, but I have a fixed width site, and half of the time by default games tend to break my style.

I know I could edit each and every game to fit in with my style, but surely there could be a simpler option that won't break fixed styles on it's own?

Thanks!

Is this supposed to be better than V3arcade? I don't see where it is. Looks very similar.

The option "Maximum Postbit Trophies" doesn't seem to be working. I've set it to 4 and it still displays the 7 trophies I've gained from testing out the arcade. I also setup the arcade on my test board to see if it was some sort of conflict from my main board, but it still has the same problem =/

Any ideas?

Then create a new permission with the usergroups you want to give access to, and set to Play or Record or Score (see description for differences)

Anything to make an extra buck these days. Whatever happened to that vB community that released stuff because they enjoyed coding? Now-a-days it just seems everything is bloated with links to purchase branding free options or extra "pro" features you have to pay extra for. You never saw this sort of thing back in to the vB2.x days. I agree Paul, this is poor etiquette and a rule should be made about forcing links with nothing to do with the mod.

In a nutshell, this arcade looks great, but I will not be installing it as I won't put a commercial link on my community site. I also own a hosting firm and even refuse to put a powered by link to my own business on my site. I really hope you reconsider forcing this as I'm sure others feel the same and past by this great add-on as the result,

This is now an option for you to easily disable if you wish It has always been intended as a way to support us for the free lite version if you have no intention of getting the pro one - because we make sure our lite versions arent useless "demo" quality!

I think it looks far nice then the v3 arcade addon, and one of the best features is that when you enter your high score, it still stays on the game screen.

That appears to be an error from v3 Arcade, judging from the language group it is trying to access, plus arcadetourmnt.php is not a file added by vBArcade.

What were you doing when you got that error? Sounds like you still have a link to that file somewhere on your site, but because you have uninstalled v3 Arcade, that orphaned file has no supporting resources to access, so you get that. Find the lingering links and remove them, and delete that arcadetourmnt.php.

You seem to be trying to untar a particularly large game file (looks like 8MB and you have a memory limit of 32M). Does it work with other games you have (smaller ones!)?

Not a whole lot can be done about it because its not an optimization issue, short of increasing your memory limit.
