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

start with the portal / index edit ..

zip files .. lots are not compatible I found but check the permissions of the zip folder

2) A lot of games won't play normally and have to play in a new window
I never heard of this.. I will have to ponder this one

Oh my God , it was workin good but now I've got this error
Warning: require(C:\xxxxxxxxxxxx\xxxxxxxx\\httpdocs\foro/arcade.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in C:\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\\httpdocs\foro\vbseo.php on line 1392
Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'C:\xxxxxxxxxx\xxxxxxxxxx\\httpdocs\foro/arcade.php' (include_path='.;./includes;./pear') in C:\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\\httpdocs\foro\vbseo.php on line 1392

I add this code to my custom rewrite rules: but the error doesn't dissapear

I turned off vbseo mod but the error still appears
What's wrong now? :'(

Never mind. Works perfect.
The error was on arcade.php server permissions

And his post saved me once again

I am thinking this doesn't work with 4.1 beta.
all my links bring up an error
Fatal error: Cannot redeclare ibp_cleansql() (previously declared in /home/crosseye/public_html/arcade.php:5536) in /home/crosseye/public_html/arcade.php on line 5553

anyone else try 4.1 with the arcade?

UPDATE: tried some changes on my own and still nothing. If anyone can assist with a fix so I can get the arcade working again I would appreciate your help big time. Thanks.
