I keep getting this error after uploading a game: http://prntscr.com/62kga

And that's when there was only one game. With second one, there was twice more errors, third game, triple that.

In other news: http://prntscr.com/62lfe the two links there led me to http://prntscr.com/62lg2

http://prntscr.com/62lzf <- I can't find an option to disable the trophies in postbit

Depends. For games downloaded from Mochi, scores don't save. Games in IBpro format (installed locally) it works ok so far: http://prntscr.com/62mn8

What's the link to v3arcade live install? http://prntscr.com/62mc0

Suddenly this started happening: http://prntscr.com/63of0

I just noticed that the button Begin Playing leads to SiteName.com/#, does this have anything to do with it?

Hi, I'm interested in this mod but I would like to say 2 info:

- Is there a profile tab with user score?
- Are there usergroup permissions like max daily play?

Thanks

I've noticed that under the score section it's putting playtime.. Any ideas why?

Games that do not support local scoring will fall back on using the time played as the score. Not ideal, but better than nothing.

What version of vBulletin did you install this on?

Thanks for sending me your htaccess in a PM! Again, apologies on the delay - I would like to work more with you on fixing your problem.

Also @emeralda - thanks for summarizing your issues on dbtech; I will continue with you there.

DBTech recently released a (I believe) free mod which compiles all of your dbtech copyrights into one copyright line, for the great fans we have out there You can find it on our site.

There is a arcade user page which holds all of their stats and latest scores. I put it there because theres too much to stick on a profile tab.

Max daily plays are a pro feature.

When I try to import the .xml file I am getting this message.

# Merge everything after this line into your forum root's .htaccess file so certain games can process scores, then try importing again:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on

# If vbulletin is in a subdirectory, add it here
RewriteBase /

# Retrieve gamedata requests and send to new dbtech locations
RewriteRule ^arcade/gamedata/(.*) dbtech/vbarcade/media/$1 [L]

# Retrieve crossdomain requests and send to new dbtech location
RewriteRule ^crossdomain\.xml dbtech/vbarcade/crossdomain.xml [L]

# Send hardcoded ipa scores to arcade instead
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} act=Arcade [OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} autocom=arcade
RewriteRule ^index\.php arcade.php [L,QSA]

# Send hardcoded pnf scores to arcade instead
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} POST [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_COOKIE} vbarcade_session
RewriteRule ^index\.php arcade.php [L,QSA]

# Reroute v3arcade liveinstaller
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} do=liveinstall
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} v3arcade_admin\.php

RewriteRule .* %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/admincp/arcade_admin.php?%{QUERY_STRING}&do=review&import=browse&system=v3a [L,R=301]
</IfModule>
When I edit the htaccess.txt file accordingly, it still gives me the same message.

I am using vb 4.1.10.

The file you need to make is .htaccess, not htaccess.txt

I don't have games to give you, but you can import hundreds from mochi, or convert from the other arcades.

Yes, but the message you got during install indicates that file already exists on your site. Look for it in your forum root directory, and edit on the code that it presented to you. If you are having trouble doing that, contact me via PM with the content of that .htaccess file and I will give you what you should replace it with.

Go to the Import Games section in the vBArcade menu in the admincp. There you can upload the games individually for import, or ftp them all into the directory it indicates. Submit that form to begin the process.
