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.

Is there a way of moving from IbproArcade to this without losing high scores or games? I'd LOVE to move to this but I dont think my users would be happy with losing all there high scores.

Sweet. I had not problems installing this in 3.5.3. Being that I have a gaming forum this will be a popular feature for my exclusive members. *Clicks install*

Now I just need to find (and willing to buy) the games. I'll visit your site John and start there. If I purchase the branding free option will I have access to other games (legally free or purchase)?

Hi John:

Version 1.0.5 seems to be working great on my boards. However, the Microstats hack alerted me to a minor problem with the software: The arcade_award_bit template is no longer being cached properly, where it was before with 1.0.2. (I had to add a plug-in in order to fix this problem.)

I gotta ask

John,
I know you've been busy, congratulations on getting the latest release out.. But I was sad to see that the Mysql problems I (and others) encountered with the previous versions were not even addressed in this version.
Question: Does your arcade "uninstall" as easily as it installs?

Could you perhaps take a few minutes to explain "How to uninstall" your arcade should a database error be encountered?

I really think you'd make mileage out of your material if you'd listen to some of the real world problems people are having with the version and not try to ADD to the product before those problems are solved or at least a work-around provided. I see many, many questions here that simply go unanswered. I know you're busy trying your best to bring everthing to everyone.. But before we need a neat new scoring system, or multi-user ability.. I really think there should be some work done on how to FIX a database or safely UNINSTALL a product.
If you've answered the questions about uninstalling the arcade, either here or on the support site, please point out the messages, thank you for your time.

I've always been able to install both types of games without any problems whatsoever.

I've tried installing the games by uploading them to the games dir in the admincp and running the import script within admincp. I've also tried uploading the games in each of the directories manually then adding them - either way I get the same error.

I've posted this error twice in this forum with no anwswers, I've also posted on your site as well, nothing there either. I've found 2-3 other members on your site with the same error but also either got no reply or replies with nothing solving the problem.

Please advise.


-Michael

Ive just done an upgrade. Ran the clean script. Then installed the addon and made sure templates were correct. When I do the the step of "Game Importing" I get...

Database error in vBulletin 3.5.4:

Invalid SQL:
SELECT COUNT(*) AS count FROM games;

MySQL Error : Table 'vbulletin.games' doesn't exist
Error Number : 1146

What have I done wrong?

--------

Oh good I followed...

//=================================\\
Upgrading from 3.0.x
\\=================================//

I guess that means I just delted my games database, my users will be impressed.

I fixed it by clicking Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager then clicking to edit the admins permissions.

Jon offers as much support as a toilet paper bra. I doubt piracy is the problem.
