You always do a good job with mods DragonByte.

I wanted to request in your future versions a modification similar to VBexperience but for vb5.

I was wanting to implement an award system but can't find any mods for it.

You can manually upload games from more providers, but automatic game importers are mostly Pro-only

Work for vBulletin 5.1.4 Beta 2?

I understand that it is uncomfortable to change the plugin code whenever vBulletin make radical changes in their latest versions.

But as they come out new version of vBulletin I think I should update their plugins because these final versions of vBulletin is that we will work in the future.

Regards.

You can try it, but if it don't work, it probably won't get updated till 5.1.4 is out of beta. It is difficult to support beta releases, as things may change and break it again.

We have had no reports of problems with vB 5.1.4, though it hasn't been tested on that version yet.

I just installed this on vb 5.1.5.

when i click the arcade tab in the navbar.... it just loads a blank page

also if i click the "begin" button to browse games from "mochi" i get this error:

There was a problem reading the games feed

i did import one game manually (asteroids) but does not seem to affect the loading of the page (still blank if i try to link to the game directly)

any ideas?

thanks

*edit*

ok, i noticed some database errors:
