I use two...v3arcade and ibProArcade, both heaviliy modified:

v3Arcade
www.bowlandcentral.com/forum/arcade.php

ibProArcade
www.bowlandcentral.com/forum/ibproarcade.php

I coded some pages to help merge the two together to some degree, such as a latest scores page that covers both:
http://www.bowlandcentral.com/forum/latestscores.php?

And also a leaderboard that covers both:
http://www.bowlandcentral.com/forum/leaderboard.php?

There is also a Chatbox (not coded by me, but certainly modified) that only logged in users can see, it appears at the top of every arcade page (but nowhere else on the forum), meaning that there is still some community 'posting' goes on, even among those who are only interested in the games.

Arcades are still a significantly popular part of my site and the people that use them will simply manually enable Flash in their browsers when the browser makers start disabling it by default.

The problem I see with staying with VB4 and continuing to mod it out, is that eventually in the not too distant future, VB4 will be nothing more than a legacy version. All those that stick with VB4 will be stuck on that version and unable to port everything to VB5 because of the many differences in how the platforms are coded. If you do move to VB5 then you will lose all those mods and have to reinstall them from scratch.

So I will stick with VB5 and be patient for the Mod developers to start moving their focus this way

I eventually do plan to upgrade to vB5 but waiting for more mods to catch up in the vb5 section, especially my favorite ones.

I can understand that. For me, I'm starting my community fresh again after a 5 year absence, so it's better for me to start with VB5 and watch the progress.

Not using any at the moment!
My members want to hang me, upgraded from VB4 to VB5 and no more arcades....
I have some unofficial "promisses" from "MrZeropage" that ibproarcade will be upgraded.
I think we should "force" him to do that ASAP, with some small donations

Hows an Arcade that plays html5 games?
You can even play them from your cell phone.

I have a few installed.
Would anyone like to test them out?
