The php error: im unable to reproduce this by itself. From the line number and the fact that there is no foreach in vbarcade's plugin, I think its another addon conflicting. If someone can show me what other plugins are using the build_navigation_array hook, we can figure that out.

Cannot play right now: go to manage permissions and click the Update Permissions button and see if that fixes it.

This is the only other mod im using that has the build_navigation_array hook.

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...gation+manager
and when i disable this the php error disappears, to get round it I have disabled the navtab in the arcage config and created on using the Navigation manager.

Also I have the same permission error, and the update permission button didnt work..

I've updated the first post with the new zip that fixes the permission issue as well as switches to the xml based vb4.2 navigation entry, to fix the conflict with andreas' addon.

You should delete any custom navtab created in the interim.

hello,

great mod, everything works fine exept one little thing. the highscore announcements are not postet in a thread or forum (tried both methods).

could it be if because of our linkstructure? for example the thread would be http://www.bazamba.com/threads/2613-Neue-Highscores

we tested 2613 and 2613-Neue-Highscores.

best regards
terror

Unfortunately, posting new threads/posts is part of the pro version only (along with regular leaderboard high scores), and I've accidentally left the settings for that (in regards to tournaments) in the lite version. I'll have those removed soon.

My apologies on the confusion.

so, i wanted to install this mod, which didnt work with this msg:


# Place this code into the top of http://bla.blablabla.bla/.htaccess so certain games can process scores, then try importing again:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on

# If vbulletin is in a subdirectory, add it here
RewriteBase /vBulletin4

# Retrieve gamedata requests and send to new dbtech locations
RewriteRule ^arcade/gamedata/(.*) dbtech/vbarcade/media/$1 [L]

# Retrieve crossdomain requests and send to new dbtech location
RewriteRule ^crossdomain\.xml dbtech/vbarcade/crossdomain.xml [L]

# Send hardcoded pnf+ipa scores to arcade instead
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} func=storeScore [OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} autocom=arcade [OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} act=Arcade
RewriteRule .* arcade.php [L,QSA]

# Reroute v3arcade liveinstaller
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} do=liveinstall
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} v3arcade_admin\.php

# If you renamed your admincp directory, change it here
RewriteRule .* %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/admincp/arcade_admin.php?%{QUERY_STRING}&do=review&import=browse&system=v3a [L,R=301]
</IfModule>
so i added this to the .htaccess file (once i tried on root (with the dir added where is vb installed) and once in the dir where vb is installed), with the resultat, that nothing was accesible in the dir (and sub dirs). so something is wrong with that code, but i have no clue what (and the .htaccess file was empty, so nothing other inside)

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /index.php on this server.

If you had a blank .htaccess, it would probably be easiest to clear it out, make it writable (chmod 777) and import the product file again. It should then complete without issue.

ok, that worked, atleast it installed, and then there was again:

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /admincp/index.php on this server.
Apache/1.3.36 Server at bla.blabla.bla Port 80
so i removed the .htaccess (needed to, bcs the site was nomore accesible, so there must be some failure somehwere;( ), seems to work. but every game i tried out has no scores submited ;((.
