Arrow [DOWNLOAD] Converter (from v3arcade to ibProArcade)

Anybody who has v3arcade running on his site and wants to migrate to ibProArcade... Here is the solution


This will automatically convert your installed games and, if you want to, even all the scores from v3arcade to ibProArcade.
The converter is designed to be used on a fresh ibProArcade-installation as you will lose all installed games and scores in your ibProArcade.


The Converter is compatible to:
  • vBulletin 3.5.x / 3.6.x
  • ibProArcade v2.5.9+ and later
  • v3arcade 1.0.6 (for vBulletin 3.5.x)
    usage with <1.0.6 are untested yet, please let me know if/how this works


Just follow those steps to migrate:

1) don't touch your v3arcade-installation yet, just close the arcade
2) download ibProArcade and install it
3) upload the attached converter to your forum's root-directory and run it

That's all, the converter is interactive and will tell you what to do ect.


Don't forget to remove the converter.php after everything is done !


The converter will let you choose if you want to remove v3arcade after conversion or not.

After you successfully converted, feel free to click UNINSTALL for v3arcade


Note to the sceptics
If you want to take a look on ibProArcade first while not losing your v3arcade, make sure you rename your /arcade.php to /v3arcade.php before you install ibProArcade. Then, after conversion is done, do not remove v3arcade at this time and test ibProArcade.
If you feel comfortable with it, remove v3arcade later via vBulletin's Product-Manager or (and that is what I point you to) run the converter again, it will provide a link for uninstallation on the first page and then guide you through the complete uninstallation (will even tell you which files and folders to remove, which the Product-uninstaller does not!). Remember to remove the renamed /v3arcade.php too
If you dislike ibProArcade, please let me know the reason and uninstall ibProArcade via the Product-Manager, then rename your /v3arcade.php to /arcade.php and you can use your v3arcade again.



If you find any bugs, if you have any improvements, ideas ect. please let me know

Sorry i havent posted earlier, but Vb.org was down:P

Everything went smoothly, IbproArcade is on the house

Ps

The only thing u must add imho in your directions, is that after u uninstall V3Arcade via the Converter, u must also uninstall any related addons u may installed. It may sounds like a common sense, but i didnt do it till my site went down (i had an error) and vb.org was also down and i was little freaked out:P But after i got my senses back, everything went smoothly

A few suggestions

I have just tested this with 3.6.x beta 3.

It worked sucessfully without a flaw!

It also took about..30 seconds to convert.

I have some suggestions though:
  • Make the converter look like the vbulletin forum upgrade pages
  • Link to the ibpro arcade download page when it says the ibpro arcade is not found (So that people can download it).
  • Add a page to tell people where the v3arcade files are so that they can remove them (ones in admincp, includes, images etc).
Thats about it Great stuff!

Also: This converter works with ibpro arcade 2.5.4+ (when moving data from v3arcade to 2.5.4+) as I did that on vbulletin 3.5.x (I forgot I had 2.5.4 not 2.5.6 )

That already is included, just start the converter and click "remove v3arcade" ...

It will tell you all steps that need to be done



I will set the Link to download ibProArcade, good idea !

Yes, if you are in step 3 of the converter it tells you how to move which files

Not much to do:
move all .swf-Files from /games to /arcade
move all .gif-Files from /images/arcade to /arcade/images

That's all

I was lucky enough to be one of MrZero's test bunnies on this. As usual, excellent work.
