This worked great on vbulletin 4, then on the latest vb4 it stopped working.
So I uninstalled and deleted and re-added everything.
All games can be played, however when you go to submit score it gives 404, then reloads, saying currently playing game, forfeit.
Is there a fix, I tried everything else.

It sounds like your .htaccess file was reset. Can you PM me the contents of it so I can make sure it has what it should?

I installed it on vb4.2 without a single problem so far. The games that can be downloaded directly from the admin panel is really awesome! Much better than the previous arcade that I had. Thanks a ton for a great mod.

Why is this mod marked as supported? If I knew there was no help here then I would have kept the previous arcade that I had.

I have looked everywhere already, how do I change the category names to white so the members can see it? Please.

I dont know if I searched correctly but I went through all the templates of the arcade and searched for everything related to category, then to color and also black but found nothing?

Did I search for the wrong wording? Thanks for your help.

@wildheart

Try playing around with the colours for these - dl.tabslight dd a:hover and dl.tabslight dd.selected a:hover

Search for them using Styles & Templates > Search in Templates

Not sure where they will be in your style templates but they are in additional.css in mine
