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.

You have found some bugs it looks like

I thought setting this to zero in unregistered guests permissions would allow them to play - am i missing something ?
I fixed it this way
In arcade.php, find:

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

Below it add:

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

ORDER BY score DESC, arcade_sessions.finish DESC
LIMIT 10;

This one I have never seen before. It seems that it will occur when a guest plays and there is no score since before. When you have one score this will not be a issue any more.
But I guess it could be fixed this way:
In arcade.php, find:

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

and replace it with:

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

Ok, so maybe I'm blind, but I am having a tough time finding games. Can anyone direct me appropriately please? When I go to v3arcade.com all it tells me is the following:

We'll be back with a new Arcade release for vBulletin 3.7. In the meantime, head over to vBulletin.org for downloads of past v3 Arcade releases.
Where do I find moar games?

actually forget this. After much testing it was severly messed up. I took the plunge and upgraded / converted to ibproarcade - MUCH MUCH better system and over 5000 games to choose from.

Plus it has a TON of support and is up to date with vb 3.7.1

FTW !!!!

I refuse to go to ibproarcade. I will if forced, but for now, v3arcade does well even this old version. I like it's light-weight backend, attractive templates, etc. ibproarcade is quite ugly.

Error when importing v3 Arcade zip file!

Hi! I have no error message when I try to import zip file.

If I press tar import, I lost my all uploaded zip file.

PHP starting like:


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

and end:



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


I have the latest arcade and vb 3.7.1.

John will be updating this. It usually takes him a bit but he always comes thro. If you look on his site he has closed it down like normal to work on the new release for 3.7 same as he did for 3.5 and 3.6.

Hi I have just added this to my site and it all seemed to go ok but when trying to access it I am getting this message

you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
When checking the setting I cant see anything that would cause this message?

You need to set the permissions in the arcade menu.
