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.

It's a nice hack and I have it installed on my forum.
But the negative thing is that there are no games available to download! Or maybe it's me who couldn't find any!

Regarding v3 Arcade not supporting IBPro's v32 games...

Here is a plugin I did to add such support. See the attached file.

If you want a improved 'iB "Pro" Arcade - Mass Game Import' function you also has to edit the arcadeadmin.php file.
This improvement also copies the gamedata folder in the tar package.
Note that the empty file v32game.txt is not copied (nor an empty index.html, if there are any).
This doesn't matter if you use my plugin since that file isn't checked anyway.

How to do it:
Import the attached file 'iB Pro v32 Arcade Game Compatibility.xml' as a plugin.
(Via "Plugin & Products" > "Download / Upload Plugins" > "Import Plugin Definitions XML File" in your Admin CP.)

Create the folder "arcade" in the forum root.
Create the folder "gamedata" in the newly created "arcade" folder and CHMOD it to 777.

Edit the file admincp/arcadeadmin.php
Warning! Copy the original arcadeadmin.php first, just in case...
You are doing this at your own risk. This will copy and delete files on your server. Don't blame me if anything goes wrong.

Done!

OBS! I don't guarantee this work for every v32 game, I don't guarantee it will work at all actually.
But it is being used and seems to work... I just don't guarantee anything

just for your information: it is not enough just to make it possible to install and uninstall those v32-games, you also need massive changes in incoming score-handling from those games, as they call some other function, use additional variables and encrypt the score itself and (in v33 games) even the GameID.
If you don't support those new communication between the new v32/v33-games and v3arcade mainscript, scores won't record or be totally messed up...

Yes, of course. That is what the plugin does.
It's a simplified version of it, for sure. But it handles those requests.

Ok, I now saw the PlugIns you provide, sorry.

But you return static values for the encryption-algorythm and you even never verify any crypted values if they may be cheated/modified or not. You just pass any value to the scores and save it.

The main avvantage of v32/v33 games is the improved security and cheat-protection using the encryption and verify-system...

Yeah, I never bothered to submit random values and I only do a simple check to verify.
That's because...
1. I am lazy.
2. Those who knows how to cheat will probably cheat anyway. It would be a litte bit more work for them, but it wont stop them.
3. It isn't worse security than all the current games available for v3 arcade anyway.

My goal was never to add security, just to make more games available.
Anyone who wants to do it properly are welcome.

no problem, just wanted to let the users know that this does not add any security and is just a "quick addon" just to let the games run

Please be aware that asking for or linking to sites with massive game downloads is considered linking to warez sites.
