OK .. Also, whilst I can Import games via the AdminCP, again if I attempt to play one (from the AdminCP) it gives me a

'Topic not found. You may have followed an invalid link or the topic may have been deleted or moved to another forum.' error

which makes me think something about reading the URL is not working correctly.

Anyway, of course I'l happily wait for your update.

Thanks Fillip. The arcade page now shows correctly.

However, now when I submit a score (from an IBProArcade game at least) / when the game ends (I tried a few different games all from a previous IBProArcade install) and when the page returns it says that "You appear to be playing a game; starting this might forfeit that session."

I checked the 'sessions' table and it only showed the 'start' time. If I click 'Cancel Session' after - it does update the sessions table, but it's not recording any scores.

I tried quickly looking for a game from Mochi that I could submit a local score (I assume that's what it means, but I couldn't see anything that submitted a score - or possibly the game was, but it wasn't working for some reason).

Here are few recent log entries. I hope these might help discover why the scores are not being submitted.

When you import games, there should be a small message and a golden crown that says "Supports local scoring" if the game does indeed support it.

By default, Notices are suppressed - what version of PHP are you running? Does it hide the notices if you change the default error_reporting level to E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_STRICT ?

Are we going to see an update for the arcade in vb5.0.5..After install the highscore games imported fine all permissions set correctly,games play fine from admincp.However.
  • Frontend the links to play the games follow the path www.yoursite.com/#
  • Gamescores won't submit.
  • After playing a game all you can do is click on cancel session.

Be nice to see the arcade being looked after and kept updated promptly seeing that this will probably be the only arcade available for vb5.Being the arcades in vbulletin are one of the oldest modifications,priority should be paramount as opposed to other mods and obviously in the interest of DBTech..

Please remain patient while I am currently bogged down with other projects. I will be looking into updating our vB5 mods for 5.0.5 as soon as I have the time.

Thank you for your patience and understanding

Unfortunately I've been very busy with our DragonByte SEO project, I don't have a firm ETA on when I'll be able to look into this further
