Updates
==========================
1.0.0 - Initial release

1.0.1 - Bug fix update
This release addressed a couple of small bugs. Information on fixing
these issues can be found in the FAQ. (Included in this zip.)

1.0.2 - Bug fixes and new features
This release makes all games on the Arcade main page appear in the
order which they were installed, regardless of whether or not it has
been played. (With the newest games at the top.)
It includes a
page navigation system, allowing users to browse games by page. By default, 10 games appear per page.
There is also a new search feature, for finding games by name/description. (Accessible through the "Search" menu in the navigation bar.)
This release should be less CPU intensive than previous versions.

1.0.3 - Bug fixes
Security fixes

History & Hack Information
- So, what is the v3 Arcade?
The v3 Arcade is exactly what the name implies - an online games arcade that offers seamless integration with your vBulletin forum.

The v3 Arcade is the first of the new generation of vBulletin additions. Back from its roots, the v3 Arcade is the vBulletin 3 edition of my original Arcade written in late 2002 (not to be confused with futureal's 'ProArcade', which was written during the Arcade's beta phase).

v3 Arcade Features Include:
Integrated Flash gaming for vBulletin 3
Advanced leader board system
FULL Mozilla/Netscape Compatibility
Moderation abilities for Mods/Super Mods/Admins
PM & Email notification for events
Advanced statistics for all users
A higher level of security
"Arcade Challenges", 1-on-1 contests between users
Arcade awards system
Automated and manual score pruning tools

This installation comes loaded with the following games:
Tetris
Snake
Asteroids
Chopper Challenge
Space Invaders

If you have the source (.FLA) for a game that you want to use in the v3 Arcade, you can send the required files to [email protected] for conversion. (Providing permission has been given by the original author.) Within a reasonable delay, I'll post the converted game and installation script on vBulletin.org.


Testing
Tested on vBulletin 3.0.3, across multiple unhacked installations.


Thanks to...
Kura: For helping out with vB3 difficulties!
Erwin: Whose vB2 Flash Player inspired the original hacks
Paul Neave: For providing the source for 4 of the standard v3 Arcade games


IMPORTANT NOTES
If you do install this hack, please click on the INSTALL button. There are going to be some updates for this which you're really not going to want to miss!
Each Arcade page has an Eovie Interactive and Flash Player link at the bottom. This is optional, but greatly appreciated.
You may have noticed that this release of the v3 Arcade is not fully phrased. To phrase the arcade would require well over a hundred phrases to be added, making for a lengthy installation process! Futures version of the v3 Arcade will be phrased, with a more automated installation.
And don't forget - BACKUP BEFORE YOU INSTALL!


Regarding the "ProArcade"
There has been a lot of debate on vb.org recently about the ownership of hack "concepts". My original Arcade hack (on which the v3 Arcade is based), was a progression of the my vBTetris Leaderboard hack - both of which came about before the ProArcade. I've spoken to Erwin regarding this, and he can confirm that this has always been an independent development; hence the v3 Arcade was authorised for release.

Fixes
If you're installing the Arcade from scratch, there are no fixes or updates to be applied. Simply follow the instructions in Installation.txt.
If you've already installed the Arcade, make the changes in Updates.txt.

How is the above scores possible? Look at the seconds played and the score. Shouldn't the score be based on the seconds the chopper is flying?

Admin,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.

Every second the chopper is in the air, you gain roughly 30 points. Someone who can dodge sticks for a minute will have 1800 points give or take a few. Basically your champ was at it for around 2 minutes...
