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.

Scamming the top scorer

Is there anyway of slowing down the game or your PC to scam the top score? Just had someone play tetris and got a top score of over 350,000. This is practically impossible I thought.

It's probably been asked a million times but I can't seem to find it with search.

Has anyone tried doing an upgrade from 3.5.4 to 3.6 when you have vBArcade active? Are there any known problems?

Thanks beforehand.

There are more sophisticated ways to scam the top score. We have offered a challenge on our site rewarding the top scorer in Tetris with $200. Comp end July 31st 2006, and recently we have had a top scorer cream the others and in every other game. This has brought on alarm bells for us and other members have complained.

See http://www.informit.com/articles/art...?p=377318&rl=1 for further info on scamming the top score.

My wife has the tetris high score on my site of 273,641. I watched her do it, and although there's no way in hell I could ever get that high, she could probably go even higher if she really worked at it. I'd say 350k is definately possible.

Howabout a top score of 672973? This is what it is at now on my site. Is this possible? Questionable right?

Please, help!!

I'm trying to upload new games, but they don't work! I can add them, I can play, but they don't submit the score!

I'm uploading the images in "/images/arcade" and SWF in "/games" and I'm using the "Manually Add Game"... I can add them, but they don't send the score!

The five "default" games that came in the install of V3Arcade works just fine... The problem is with the new games I'm trying to add...

I've tried:
- SpankTheMonkey
- IceAge
- YetiSports

And a lot more... They work fine while playing, but they don't send the score when the game is over...

I don't get any error, I'm not redirected to index.php... The game just stays there, and nothing happens while it should be submiting the score...

All the games that I've tried where downloaded from this thread: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=60666

VBulletin: 3.5.4
V3Arcade: 1.0.6

Please make sure that you have entered the game shortnames/gamenames correctly, these can be found inside the zip file in the game.php file.
