We are currently experiencing a high volume of support tickets due to a number of issues arising from the vBulletin 4.2.2 update.

Until we announce official support for vBulletin 4.2.2, please remain on 4.2.1 or lower.

Thank you for your patience, and we apologise for the inconvenience.

Found the fix on the vbulletin.com forums

Some further information on error displays in 4.2.2 ;

As part of the php compliance changes, error reporting in 4.2.2 was fixed to take account of the new strict & deprecated errors added in php 5.x
A side effect of this is that old (existing) errors that were not showing up may also now get displayed.

All of the errors we encounted during testing were corrected, but there may be more.
If you encounter such an error, then please log it in the vB4 Jira project, so we are aware of it.


If you need to disable error displays, there are several methods, depending on your circumstances and technical ability.

1. Add this line to your in your php.ini file (production sites should run like this anyway)
Code:

display_errors = Off


2. If you cannot access your php.ini file, add this line near the top of your config.php
Code:

ini_set('display_errors', 'Off');


3. Use the option added in 4.2.2 to suppress messages if you have products or hooks in use that still generate errors.

Goto : Settings > Options > Plugin/Hook System and then set the "PHP Compatability" setting to 'Yes'.

This will change the error reporting options within vBulletin on the first hook that is run.
If you have vBulletin Suite (i.e. Blogs / CMS) or you have the Panjo Product enabled, this setting will pretty much disable the Strict & Deprecated messages anywhere.
This is because all three of those products use the "init_startup" hook.

If you dont actually have any of those running, you can create a dummy plugin yourself - use the "init_startup" hook, and just put a comment in the php section.
Code:

// Dummy Hook //

. This will cause the option to suppress errors after init_startup has been called (which is at the start of almost all pages)


4. This is for those who feel comfortable with editing files.

In class_core.php locate lines 5683-5685
Code:

case E_NOTICE:
// Just ignore these completely //
break;

Add lines for Deprecated and/or Strict errors as required ;

Code:

case E_NOTICE:
case E_STRICT:
case E_DEPRECATED:
// Just ignore these completely //
break;

This will bypass the additional error reporting.

That is correct, I said patch, not a new version. Patch means files have been updated.

There really is no instructions, upload the files and just to be safe, import the XML.

Update

Hotfix: PHP 5.4 Compatibility fixes


This does not guarantee the mod is error free on PHP 5.4, but it will take care of the reported errors. Thank you all for your reports

Fresh install of vbarcade 2.0.2 to vb 4.2.2

When you go to admincp - vbarcade:

vbarcade - import games:

Warning: Only variables should be passed by reference in ..../admincp/arcade_admin.php on line 1422

vbarcade - new permissions:

Warning: Only variables should be passed by reference in ..../admincp/arcade_admin.php on line 888

And you cant copy or create any new permissions as it shows the create new game stuff instead of the permission stuff.
