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.

WOOOOOO FINNALLY!

GOOD WORK JOHN

You need to edit ur usergroup and set permissions, once you do that it should rebuild you bitfields, and then you should see the arcade permissions at the bottom.



Also thanks john, i love the way the games are so easy to install from your site.

Best hack ever.

i just hope to see hundreds of games for this version, because ibPro version is not free... you have to pay to be able to download more than one game per day, this is not fair... even if they have a lot.

also, i think this wil lbe more supported, as it is built 100% from scratch for 3.5 with 3.5 code only...

SO- in order to install the hack guests need to be able to view the arcade page? that sucks... guests can't get past the front door of my site, and that is the way I want it. I guess I will have to go with the other arcade system since I do not want guests to be able to access my arcade. Too bad- it looked like a good hack.

this is stupid logic...

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

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

this will prevent ALL non-logged-in users to be locked out

when you have a need, just request it instead of telling it's a non-avenue!

and btw, if your users have no access to the board, they will not have more access to the arcade, as it is driven by vBulletin authentication...

Ho John, in the ACP when clicking to remove all 0 scores I get the following error...
Database error in vBulletin 3.5.1:

Invalid SQL:

Referrer : http://www.dragonninja.co.uk/admincp....php?do=scores
IP Address : 62.252.32.11

And also, when downloading a game from v3arcade.com I get the following errors.

Warning: fopen(/www/dragonninja/games/simon.swf): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /admin/arcadeadmin.php on line 225

Warning: fopen(/www/dragonninja/images/arcade/simon1.gif): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /admin/arcadeadmin.php on line 225

Warning: fopen(/www/dragonninja/images/arcade/simon2.gif): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /admin/arcadeadmin.php on line 225

Installing Simon
Obviously the game or the images are not installed and I now have a dud entry. Any idea why?

Any help is appreciated... Thanks.

John, I can't verify my license on v3arcade.com.
I'm sure the url works and guest can see the arcade.
