Yes, the arcade needs the .htaccess file for scoring to work.
Nothing in there is related to access permissions though, just some rewrite rules.

Can you send your host the .htaccess file that vbarcade generated? They can verify if they disabled any of the directives listed within it for your site in particular.

Just to note..

Currently still using /admincp & /modcp


To make sure the game posted scores I grabbed one that was on your site... Still nothing..

Is there not a way you can ban a user via username instead of IP address?

You can create a secondary usergroup, say "banned from arcade" and add users to that. Then you can easily block that usergroup from playing in the arcade.

I like this arcade but I messed up. I upgraded from vB3 to vB4 earlier this week. I have backups. I started with ibproarcade which looked terrible after the upgrade. I migrated to v3arcade which wasn't much better. I installed and converted to this arcade earlier today. It was working fine, and the games use a ton of space, so I removed the old arcades both by uninstalling products and removing games. Sometime later I noticed there were multiple scrores being recorded for members. I only wanted to have the best score per member. I tried the scheduled cron job for cleaning up the scores but misinterpreted what it does. Now all our scores are gone. I have a sql dump of the original arcade. Is there any way for me to import the old scores for our games? Does everyone need to start over? Ugh. Thanks!

Is it possible for you to restore the original ibproarcade you had installed? If so, uninstall vBArcade first...

Once ibproarcade is restored, install a fresh vbarcade on top of it (be sure to set vBArcade to use only best score) and use its import function to get all your games (be sure to check to include Scores with this process).

When all the games and scores are in, you can uninstall ibproarcade, including the gamedata folder - all the media assets will have been moved to the central vbarcade folder.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance

Any chance I can restore it under a different domain name and a migrate script can be written to migrate from that site to the live site? They would be on the same server. I don't want to start all over again on the vB4. The backups were for vB3 a couple days ago. Actually a command line migrate script would be helpful in general. I have over 4000 games and the migrate pages timed out on big numbers like 1000. I was able to sit here and do them 500 at a time which still took a while.

Well it needs both the tables (which look like games_*) from ibproarcade and the old /arcade/ folder. You can restore your backup to that domain, then selectively copy those tables/folder to your official domain.

Actually, before I go through that, any chance there is an undo for that scheduled task that unhides the scores? From what I can see a lot of other stats are still displayed.

No, however I could probably put that into the next version.

Yes all games, scores, settings will be kept when upgrading to the pro version.
