I hope you guys know that this isn't exactly a feature of the VBulletin software, nor can it just be switched on or off... If you guys really want us to beg the administrators to go out and actually find and install the VBulletin hacks for arcades, then we will... but I'm telling you now, it will probably be an absolute waste of time.

We're doing everything we can just to get basic necessities implemented here, and that's ridiculously hard enough, and only about 6 percent probable.

Wait...we are talking about an MB arcade?

Damn, I thought you meant arcade arcades...like...let's go to the arcade. I was all about that as a kid. Primal Rage was my ****. There used to be gigantic ones with loads of games. Over the years they just got smaller and smaller. Now all you get is freakin Time Crisis at the movie theater and it's usually broken. Freakin lame. Arcades are still huge in Asia, so every time I visit I check them out. They've gotten more creative with them, too...really interactive stuff.

So this thread was wishful thinking and a bit premature?

awww pretty much got our hopes up for nada.

this thread should have been made like when you had insider info that it was actually going to be more feasible or it was going to be happening in the next week or so for sure.

Then everyone would cheer

There are still a couple of good arcades out there, not sure if they are where you live. There is a chain called Tilt around here, not the best but it's still something. They're slowly getting closed though, but they do have some good games, King of Fighters, Metal Slug, Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, House of the Dead, Galaga, and the new ones like Tekken and DDR which are fun to.
Me and of couple of friends stumbled upon a Chuck E. Cheese that had an original Marvel vs. Capcom 1, we were there for two hours having a mini tournament until the parents started complaining.

Finding it is relatively easy. It can be a really outdated version for all i care.

Getting them to acknowledge might be hard, but it would be swell if you still asked

We can ask, but I sort of want to wait until we get our answers on the list we've already sent.

If I may; what was included on that list? I'm sure our members would appreciate being included in any dialogue pertaining to the improvement of mb.

I was thinking it could be a mbar initiated project like the MB Chatroom.

There was a thread where he included everything that was in the list and gave the members a chance to add things to said list, maybe you weren't paying attention when the thread was around and open for members to contribute to the list.
