  • Tournaments
    you can create Tournaments via AdminCP or Arcade-ModCP with either 2, 4 or 8 participants

    Creation of Tournaments is based on Usergroup and User-Permissions
    Each Game can be set to be selectable for Tournaments or not
  • Automatic Game Installation
    in the AdminCP you can easily install new games, just upload the Archives to your server and install with a single click. There even is mass-installing included to install all uploaded games at once.

For additional information just check out the attached Screenshots

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 !
ibProArcade v2.7.5+ and later is full compatible to PHP5.6 and PHP7 and works with all vBulletin-versions 3.x/4.x with all the same Scripts !
PHP7.0/7.1 require minimum vBulletin 3.8.11 or 4.2.5 and ibProArcade v2.7.5+

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 & 4.x.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):
---MAD---, Acers, Aftermath, beacher, dede1, E=mc˛, Esposito, Feckie (Roger), Gemma, ggiersdorf, GrendelKhan{TSU, Huijting, jbd, JTyson, kall, kylek, MasterMaik, matrix, media4you, micheal332001, MissKalunji, MrLister, nitro, nullified, Okie, Paul_Hollibone, Scotty2k, Ski-Whiz, slank, Smoker, stangger5, Synper, soniceffect, Sooner95, tcs, Tekram, Willy, Wordplay and everybody else I forgot to mention here

Thanks for any help
Not sure about that, but you can go admincp -> Arcade Main Settings -> Postbit Display style and there are a number of options for showing arcade trophies/highscores in the postbit.

If this is happen I think that your gamedata is delete.
There are a few V32 games that on some reason the gamedata delete.
I'am not sute, but I think that this are the games where first start a advertisement before your can play.
I recommand to make a backup from your gamedata before install new games.
One of this game have delete all my gamedata.
When this hapen, you can play the game but your scores don't save

Question :)

I need to move Arcade to different folder.

I was using the forum in the domain root but would like to move it back to forum file.

I have already copied it to the forum file.

Everything is ok and vbulletin 3.8.2 is recognizing the change.


The arcade is still "Calling Home"

It is literally like E.T.

It phones home to the original directory.

can anyone tell me which code needs "Change"

Thanks in advance.....!!!!

Just installed this... everything looks fine... was really happy with it... until I tried to play a game! That's when it said I didn't have permission! Went back over the install guide and apparently I'm supposed to have an "Arcade" link in my admincp where I can set up permissions etc. ...but it just isn't there... any ideas why it's not there?

hey guys need some help here, i have a custom skin on my forums so the lines:

<td valign="top" nowrap="nowrap">

<if condition="$post['joindate']"><div>$vbphrase[join_date]: $post[joindate]</div></if>


<td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="calendar.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[calendar]</a></td>

don't appear anywhere in the postbit, postbit_legacy, or navbar templates, respectively

i was wondering where i would add:

<div class="smallfont">$post[crowns]$post[champtext]<br /></div>

$post[crowns]$post[champtext]<br />


<td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="arcade.php?$session[sessionurl_q]">Arcade</a></td>

thanks in advance i appreciate it
