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

Hi guys, when my users play the arcade game for a long period of time - it logs them out.. they can't save the score.. it really screws up the competitions...

Also, sometimes as soon as you hit arcade it automatically logs you out..

Any tips or how to fix?

That wasn't my question, my question was what's the URL to your image?

You won't get support in this thread form the author. The best place is where you started the thread. Your not being ignored, but if you think about the thousand of installs this modification has, and the fact that it only has one person providing support for it, your not likely going to get quick answers, even for a simple question.

I am getting the following error message when I click on the Arcade Main Setting in the admin CP. I followed the install process to the "T". Help me please.

The webpage cannot be found
HTTP 404
Most likely causes:
There might be a typing error in the address.
If you clicked on a link, it may be out of date.

What you can try:
Retype the address.

Go back to the previous page.

Go to and look for the information you want.

More information

This error (HTTP 404 Not Found) means that Internet Explorer was able to connect to the website, but the page you wanted was not found. It's possible that the webpage is temporarily unavailable. Alternatively, the website might have changed or removed the webpage.

For more information about HTTP errors, see Help.

Zapper1, double check that your arcade.php file is uploaded to the admincp directory..

My issue:
For whatever reason my MySQL user didn't have permissions to alter tables. Based on the errors I was quickly able to determine the cause and fix it... anyway, as a request, maybe it'd be nice to have some error handling done on the queries used by the installer to catch an issue like this.

I've search the spanish file language file with no success, so I've translated it for myself. I hope this helps everyone looking for an spanish version. The good news, is that your visitors will see everything in spanish, the bad news is that the ModCP and AdminCP section are not translated yet. Our administrator and moderator do understand english so it's not necessary for me. If you can do it, please update my file and share it!, so you can help others

Version: 2.6.7

Language file: lang_Arcade_es.php

User section: Translated
Mod section: Not translated
Admin section: Not translated
