any ideas?

thanks

*edit*

ok, i noticed some database errors:

Mochi has been shut down, and there's no point in trying to import from iPArcade if this has not been installed on your forum

Same as above, is this a database creation error?

MySQL Error : Table 'vb5.games_cats' doesn't exist

And cant find anything in the xml that suggests that it is created?

Hey,

That would indicate you are attempting to import games from ibProArcade, could you please confirm the exact steps you are taking when you see this error?

Hello.

Is there a way to import games that were installed to vb4 to the vb5 installation? I lost my games drive a couple of years ago and only have what is installed to my vb4 board I'd love to pull into vb5.

I too get a blank white page when I click on the arcade tab.

Is this maybe because I have no games installed yet?

I'm also having trouble browsing games...

When I click browse here:

I get this screen:

Would love to get it working.

Same thing as people already posted. Click arcade get blank page. Go to import game that the tar file was uploaded to the import folder, click begin and nothing happens except get taking back to "forums" page" that shows this - Invalid Page URL. If this is an error and the page should exist, please contact the system administrator and tell them how you got this message.

Then get database error in email:


Database error in vBulletin 5.2.1: Invalid SQL: SELECT c_id, cat_name FROM games_cats ORDER BY pos ASC, cat_name ASC /**fetchGameCategories-ipA- vbarcade**/; MySQL Error : Table 'xxxxxxx_testvb.games_cats' doesn't exist Error Number : 1146 Request Date : Sunday, April 24th 2016 @ 01:39:16 AM Error Date : Sunday, April 24th 2016 @ 01:39:16 AM Script : http:///testvb/admincp/arcade_admin.php?do=import Referrer : http://xxxxxxxxx.xxx/testvb/admincp/index.php?do=nav IP Address : xxxxxxxx Username : xxx Classname : vB_Database_MySQLi MySQL Version : 5.6.29

Looking in the database I see dbtech_vbarcade_category but nothing to do with game_cats Is there any info to create the missing games_cats table?

Uploaded the latest version from dbtech - installed.

Still cant see anything except forum home page when clicking on the "Arcade" link in the navigation bar.

When I am in admincp - dbtect vbarcade - configurations - all 3 settings when clicked takes me to a highlighted forum tab page that shows this:

Invalid Page URL. If this is an error and the page should exist, please contact the system administrator and tell them how you got this message.

Now have tried to upload a game - have tar file (for example game_towerblasterv32.tar) and uploaded it via ftp to .com/testvb/core/packages/dbtechvbarcade/import

Now go to admincp - dbtech - vbarcade - import games - click begin,

Once again, get taken back to the forums page with the message 0
Invalid Page URL. If this is an error and the page should exist, please contact the system administrator and tell them how you got this message.

At the same time via email get database error;

Database error in vBulletin 5.2.1: Invalid SQL: SELECT c_id, cat_name FROM games_cats ORDER BY pos ASC, cat_name ASC /**fetchGameCategories-ipA- vbarcade**/; MySQL Error : Table 'xxxx_testvb.games_cats' doesn't exist Error Number : 1146 Request Date : Wednesday, April 27th 2016 @ 07:49:48 PM Error Date : Wednesday, April 27th 2016 @ 07:49:48 PM Script : http:///testvb/admincp/arcade_admin.php?do=import Referrer : http://xxxxxxxxx.com/testvb/admincp/index.php?do=nav IP Address : xx.xx.x.xxx Username : xxxx Classname : vB_Database_MySQLi MySQL Version : 5.6.29

Would be nice to see this working on vb 5.2.1 stable release as this is what is holding me back from updating a couple of vb4 sites to vb5.

You should not try to import games from ibpArcade unless you have this mod's tables still active in your database.

I am not trying to import from ibparcade at all and am trying to get this to work on a test vb setup, new install of vb5 and arcade, database is new so no old vbarcade database settings.

I have a couple of discs of saved games saved over several years, most are ibproarcade games.

If your live site is not running vB5 I would strongly recommend sticking with vB4, as it is very stable and not prone to these kind of issues.
