This is an issue with your database setup. Please ensure all your tables and columns use the same collation - your host can help you with this if you don't know how to do it yourself

OK when first installed and imported a few games all works good and have access to manage games. After I try and add games I have in a folder that came from the old arcade I get the ( Fatal error: [] operator not supported for strings in /home/spooky/public_html/admincp/arcade_admin.php on line 1111) error.
To add these games I point the import page to the .swf and 2 .gif's (thumbnail and image). Game installs and plays good just won't save.
Where would I find the .php's for the games? I have the .swf's amd image files. If I had the php's I would zip them and import them like that from a folder?
Sure could use some help. Thanks.

This stops in the middle of the xml import on upgrade and displays the following message

# Place this code into the top of http://mysite.com/.htaccess so certain games can process scores, then try importing again:
Below that it displays my entire htaccess file. The code is already there but it won't continue with update.

Yeah I don't think it's a good idea to let mods write to .htaccess files.

Installed on4.1.9 suite and over old ibproarcade.

No scores came across and after importing the games

games have all gone into UNCATEGORISED. I don't see any way to move games to new category.

Menu doesn't work at top of arcade : Leaderboard Tournament Create New Tournament Misc. Menu
Settings
All just clicks to main arcade homepage

Postbit showing trophies mucks up forum - appears trophies are too wide for postbit

Those are what I noticed so far. Any help appreciated. Looks neater than IBPro

Then back up the file prior to performing the import and compare it afterwards

We have had 0 reports of broken .htaccess files as a result of having to perform this temporary change

We've not had any reports of this happening before, can you please walk me through what you did step by step?

What does the URL show when you click the pages?

That seems like an issue with your skin, you may need to contact your skin dev and/or your graphics artist to create some new images for you

Hi Filip,

I done exactly what it said in the readme file I'm not too fussed about the scores not coming over and neither are the members- just makes them play again

When I click on one of the menus such as "create new tournament" it shows the URL as it should :

http://bonusbanter.com/arcade.php?&a...=createtourney

But the page actually just looks the same as the homepage for the arcade. Same thing happens for all top menu items and submenus.

RE: postbit - I have modified the postbit so the issue probably lies there thanks.
