More one error it was found:

This line bellow at template arcade_scores:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

The correct is:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I hope my bug reports will be fixed in next version.

At ajax search follow this steps:

1) search for any game (make sure game exists on arcade)
2) the results will show
3) now delete the text of search field and see the dots gif still visible all time after you clear the field.

Here is my solution for this small fault. Edit the template arcade_ajaxsearch and replace that function bellow:

There is a bit of a mishap for the games editing area it says minimum reputation to play: 0 and I don't want rep to be a factor in this so I keep it at Zero but, if a member of mine has negative rep it wont allow them to play the arcade

thank you for a great product.
I am not, nor do I pretend to be a coder. I can add things to code, copy and paste and proficient enough to drop routines into code, but do not code. The link did not come up in our current template, but would like to but the link under the community drop down menu. What they use there from what I can tell is: which is one link to social groups
<if condition="$show['quick_links_groups']">
<tr><td class="vbmenu_option"><a href="group.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[social_groups]</a></td></tr>

Would someone know the correct way to add a section for the v3arcade?
Thank you!

I have version 1.0.7 installed on my board (which I inherited, so I didn`t do the 1.07 installation), and after I upgraded to vBulletin 3.8.3 the Arcade doesn`t work. Can I simply uninstall the existing version and install 1.1.1, or is there anything else I need to do?
