ibProArcade v2.7.2+ or older (Newest Game Thread vb4 version 3.0)

This mod makes a new thread when you install a .tar game..
It only works when installing one game at a time..

Step #1
Add this to your admincp/arcade.php file...

Look in the // TAR install code

global $IN, $INFO;

change to:

global $IN, $INFO, $vboptions;

Still in the // TAR install code, now find this code around line 3028 for:

$DB->query("INSERT INTO ibf_games_list (" .$db_string['FIELD_NAMES']. ") VALUES (". $db_string['FIELD_VALUES'] .")");

Put this right below it:

$DB->query("select g.*, c.c_id, c.password, c.cat_name from ibf_games_list as g
left join ibf_games_cats as c on (g.gcat = c.c_id)
ORDER BY g.added DESC LIMIT 1");
$gamea = $DB->fetch_row();

$vbversion = substr($vboptions[templateversion],0,3);
if (($vbversion != "3.0") && ($NATIVEMODE==0))
($hook = vBulletinHook::fetch_hook('ibproarcade_game_added' )) ? eval($hook) : false;

Step ##2
Find this in the includes/xml/hooks_ibproarcade.xml file:


and put this below it:

Just update this to version 3.0..

Looks like the admincp/arcade.php query was causing the problem so I coded a new query..
