I am almost ready with an update to vbarcade for hopefully this weekend, that includes the handful of reported bugs that have been patched, optional vbcredits integration support, and even some ie7 fixes for the layout (which incidentally will make it easier for vb3 porting)

this is one of the reasons why I wont be using it
Wow, this actually boils down to a typo! In (forum)/(admincp)/arcade_admin.php find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and replace with

Do you have an .htaccess file in your forum root? Did you get any installation errors when you imported the vbarcade product xml? Do any games work with scoring?

Yes I have a .htaccess file, no errors when importing product, no games save score. Also after playing a game for the first time all other games come up with this when I go to play them.
You appear to be playing a game;
starting this might forfeit that session.

Astriods when done and you click OK, it says CAN NOT ACCESS GAME TABLE. What is this? I have many other games that I loaded to the arcade and they are working fine., recording scores!

Ask your host to enable allow_url_fopen in your php.ini settings - that being disabled only prevents you from using the feed-based import methods; the others should work fine (including downloading games from mochi and using the upload import method).
