    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

    • Arcade-Pass for free playing (without winning)
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

I was an avid fan of this arcade but have now switched 4 forum sites arcades back to the other arcade that works great with 4.0.8. Way less headaches then using ibproarcade any more.

ibProArcade forum seems to be having issue. Have signed up, but got no email, signed up again with different email address, still no confirmation email.
Looked further into their forum, as i user I should be able to download 3 games, but it wont let me even do that. Although this does say confilicting info
If you are a Member (Locked) user group then you will not be able to download any games. You will have been placed in this group if we couldn't determine the authenticity of your account (please see: Users found creating multiple accounts will be banned from the site.

Members (Locked)

3 Downloads Per Day
So I click on the link to find out more info, and i get this.
Sorry, the link that brought you to this page seems to be out of date or broken.
So I try to report the problem, I get this
"Sorry, you do not have permission to start a topic in this forum"

EDIT: Have signed up for their Elite package, it didn't cost much, so just went for it, downloading games now and playing them.

Don't complain to us!

ibpdownloads has nothing to do with this forum nor does it have anything to do with the thread.

Pointless post!
