ibProArcade is compatible to ibProArcade-Games (*wow* surprise!), v3arcade-Games and PNflashgames (, use POSTNUKE format).
PNflashgames does even offer Multiplayer-Games.

This Hack was originally done for Invision Power Board (IPB) by Chris Kelly and later adapted to work within vBulletin 3.0.x but had no real integrated AdminCP and even some illegal licensed Files from IPB included, so it was removed from official vBulletin-Sites.

ibProArcade for vBulletin comes along with a complete new AdminCP with even more options and improved functionality, has been bugfixed alot and I implemented some additional feature that where missing. All known security-issues found have been fixed.

ibProArcade is full compatible to PHP4 and PHP5 and works with all vBulletin 3.x.x (yes, 3.0.x + 3.5.x + 3.6.x + 3.7.x + 3.8.x) with all the same Scripts !

Installation of ibProArcade is very simple and easy:

vBulletin 3.0.x
upload the Files
run the Installer
edit 4 PHP-Files
edit 3 Templates
add 1 new Template

vBulletin 3.5.x & 3.6.x & 3.7.x & 3.8.x
upload the Files
import the Product-XML-File
edit 3 Templates

If you are upgrading from an existing Arcade, some information:
  • For existing ibProArcade-Installations (v2.6.6+ and older) check the included Upgrade-Information (look in Archive)
  • For existing ibProArcade-Installations (v2.5.1) just do everything like a fresh installation, your Games and Scores should be kept automatically
  • For existing v3arcade-Installations (v1.0.x) for vBulletin 3.5/3.6 there is the converter available.
I want to say a big THANK YOU to everybody who helped in the 3 months of development, testing and bugfixing the initial v2.5.3+ (in alphabetical order):

The only difference i have from yours files is "dbclass.php" I do not remember making changes to that file.

Here is mine.

If no luck...
go to your plesk panel and press "Logs" see if you have a warning when you get white page. maybe there is a security rule?

You dont need dbclass.php

Thanks that seems to have done the trick. There was actually two parts that needed to be changed from dbclass.php to dbclass_mysqli.php within the arcade.php file.

Today, I upgrade my server to php 7.1 (I use vbulletin 4.2.5) and now, I have a blank page or http 500 (with chromium http 500 error with firefox blank page).

I made this changes (indicate url for no longer post)

But continue with the same problem.
In admincp, I can access to arcade fine, but when I go in my forum to arcade.php I have blank page or http 500 error (chromium http 500 error firefox blank page).


Edit: Like in my cPanel I can select the php version, I returned to 5.6.34, now, if access to arcade, appears this 2 error lines:

Update my last post...

After read the last 10 or 15 pages of this thread, I can use arcade thanks at some post of MarkFL.

Indicate that I made:

Restore my full backup of Arcade.

Then, in the file "arcade.php" and do a search/replace on =& to change them all to =.
And change in line 35:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Then, download the file and replace: arcade/functions/dbclass_mysqli.php (of this post)

Finally, also, when using mysqli, replace "admincp/arcade.php" with the attached filein this post.

Ok, now, with vb 4.2.5 and PHP 7.1 works Arcade but...I have the same problem that have BGObssesion

I read all the post about this, not indicate how solved this, but I have the same problem.

In one post of stannger5 indicate works, for not view how solved this...

Can help about this?

Thanks in advanced!
