  1. Today
  2. Welcome to ipsProArcade.

     

    We certainly hope that you find the site user friendly and enjoyable.  We like most other sites have a few rules.  The following list is not an all inclusive list but will most certainly point out the more important rules.  As it is not all inclusive, we remind you to review these rules from time to time as they can and more than likely will change or be added to.

     

    FORUMS

    • We do not allow the harassment of any member, we like to consider ourselves a family friendly site so verbally attacking, swearing, stalking or being rude to any other member will not be tolerated
    • Review your posts prior to hitting the enter key, do not post anything that you would not want your child to repeat, hear or see
    • DO NOT Spam any of the forums, constantly bumping a post because you have not received an answer, promoting your site or product
    • ABSOLUTELY NO PORN or any other images that would be considered not appropriate for a family site
    • Swearing is not allowed in the forums are any other part of the site, such as the shoutbox.  We realize that every now and again there will be a slip, we are not talking about that, but more referring to the continued use of swear words throughout the site

     

    SHOUTBOX

    • Please do not use the shoutbox to post problems you are having to get quicker responses.  Requests for support in the shoutbox can be covered over by other posts that are made, none of the staff here are online 24 hours a day and it could happen that your request for support goes unanswered because it was never seen.  Any requests for support should be placed in the appropriate forum for two reasons, 1) The post will always be there and we all check the forums for any new posts each time we log on and 2) another member may be experiencing the same type of problems you are having and will be able to correct their problem as well.

     

    ARCADE

    • NO cheating on games, not quite sure why some find it a need to cheat on a game that you get nothing for if you gain the high score, it is not like a gambling casino where monetary gains are received for getting the high score.  If you find a game that is easy to cheat on, letting one of the staff know will allow us to get rid of the game, as it is no fun when you get a really good score and then someone comes along and within a few seconds takes the score away because they use a cheat on a game
    • NO STALKING - Stalking is a matter of one member following another member around and playing the exact same games in an effort to get a better score.  This is ANNOYING and will not be tolerated.  All scores have a one hour time frame to where, if someone just posted a score, coupled with "fair play" that score is not open for other members to play.  We have our no stalking policy enacted on this site and currently it is only for games that have been installed for more than 5 days.  New games are currently not tagged with the stalking policy, but if we notice that members are not adhering to the one hour rule, we will tag ALL games with the no stalking policy, except for those that are set as "challenge games"
    • Playing all of the easy games to post a score on, just to climb to the top of the leader board also will not be tolerated.  This is ANNOYING and not in the scope of what we here consider fair play you can be banned from the arcade for a period of no less than 24 hours if you are a continuous abuser of this rule.

  4. #Ron Yes, what kind of features do you miss in the arcade Pro? The ipb arcade also does not have a lot that the arcade Pro has for it.
  5. Our arcade has par exemple sub-categories - legionaires arcade doesn`t have (possibly not yet)
  6. of course, otherwise I wouldn't know. which features are missing on the arcade pro?
  7. Yesterday
  8. For now, we are planning on staying with IPS at least until we figure out if it is feasible to move to another platform which would require a total rewrite of the arcade
  9. Have you tried phpBB lately. Thorsten's arcade, yes is very good, doesn't have the same features as we have with Legionaire's arcade.
  10. i don't like phpbb, in contrast to invision power board, but i think that thorsten's arcade pro is very good and actually has the same functions as the arcade here at legionaire.
  11. The link works, only no SSL. Why don't you just move on and use better supported themes like from Ehren or Taman?
  12. No, no truck driving for me although most of my family on my Dad's side were drivers. I have a GOVT contracting job and I do training for the Army and National guard
  13. I just set up a test site using phpBB, Thunder installed his Arcade Pro for us to check out. It is a great arcade, but lacks a lot of the feature we have in ipsProArcade, and is quite costly. SMF Arcade, this one is not for competitions no challenges installed, but it is free software. I have a site setup for Beta testing Arcadeholics - https://arcadeholics.net/index.php I have asked Chen a few times if he could add more features, but no luck with that. myBB quite the same, plain arcade but again freeware. Myself I think phpBB is the way to go. It can be customized quite simply, ext.'s are added very easy as are the skins and languages. All the ext's and skins and languages are freeware, they do have some paid ext.'s and skins. Just need a cheaper arcade with all the bells and whistles. killbill has an arcade for phpBB, but I don't know anything about it. Legionaire, your on the road often, you drive a truck for a living.
  14. Hmmm… can't reach this page It looks like the webpage at https://ibtheme.com/forums/ might be having issues, or it may have moved permanently to a new web address. ERR_FAILED
  15. Last week
  16. Just to expand a little, the paid software is a bit costly as well VBulletin - 249.00 up front, but appears that there is no yearly charges however, if they have a big upgrade such as vbulletin 5 to vbulletin 6 then there is usually an upgrade cost - does not appear to have an active arcade VBulletin 5) however Stannger5 has an arcade built on VBulletin 4 that is very much like this one Xenforo - 160.00 and $55 a year to maintain your license, currently has an arcade that is not very good
  17. That is the only link that is working for her site
  18. Don't like that link ! Attackers might be trying to steal your information from ibtheme.com (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). NET::ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID
  19. @Ronald try this link https://ibtheme.com/forums/
  20. Sorry everyone, I am just returning from a very demanding road trip that has zapped most of my energy. Even though I have been keeping on eye on this topic, I have really not had any time to sit and participate. Now that I am at home, it is time to jump in and see what we can do as co-owners, admin and friends to see what is next. Although it has been a while, we could all see the writing on the wall in which direction IPS was heading, I did not know Brandon (bfarber) from IPS had moved on and not heard why he had made that decision (perhaps he did not like the direction they were headed either), so who will be the next to go Matt ? I would feel comfortable in saying that moving from IPS to another paid community software would not be the smart move as that could tend to move in the same direction and quite frankly I am getting a little tired of paying for something we purchased a long time ago when you have very good free software out there that does pretty much the same thing IPS does for FREE. With that said I have done some searching around and have come up with what would be the best possible switches to make. phpBB - proabably the #1 free community software out there SMF MyBB And a new community software that is really in the baby stages called Flarum. Currently this one is free but that could change quite easily as it is still in it's very early stages All of these with the exception of Flarum already have some type of arcade system built, the problem I see is, would tubesock want to recode the arcade to work with one of these other platforms. And what would be the cost of creating another arcade, would users want to pay for yet another arcade ? If you had to choose another platform what would it be ?
  21. Is Sherri closed again "Can't reach this page" ibtheme.com
  22. I see they jumped to $40 every 6 months now, instead of the $25 per 6 months. I never had to use support, very seldom went to the support forums, as you can tell since I didn't know about the price increase. They are going to price themselves out of business. You can get a blog that does most everything that IPS does now with Pages etc. They've gone insane, apparently. I'm going to have to think about it. I already stopped using many mods a long time back. I refuse to pay a set price, and then a renewal every 6 months for a mod, or Theme. It's been a 13-year run as of last month, I may wind up pulling my plug, and concentrating on my Blog. I'll have to wait and see what my members feel like.
  23. They are back to 6month renewals now btw.
  24. Earlier
  25. myBB is free software, not to many used for arcades like we use. Mostly scripts installed: Arcade Webmasters Forum | TalkArcades - Arcade Showroom (thearcadenetwork.com) phpBB is a much better setup and much easier to install the mod.'s
  26. MyBB have arcade - never tested - https://community.mybb.com/thread-167727.html?highlight=arcade And it is free like Mybb
  27. I am hanging on right now by the skin of my ass. I go in the hole every month, between IPS, the Modder's, and the VPS server. With the new increase, I just can't afford this any longer. My Renewal is due 02/04/2022 total $205.00 this is USD funds so add another 35 percentage on for exchange. I think the way things are going, this will be it for me.. I also have a SMF Arcade forum, but this arcade is not built for competitions, no settings to set up game plays.
  28. Please may I include phpBB. phpBB has a nice setup and easy to use, but no arcade.
  29. They want USD 220 per year including addons, if I would get over 300. That was it for me.
