Hi DW

Yes our domain is verified with mochi The folks that are unable to play don't see the adverts, they see the first screen with the "begin" or "play now" button, they click on it, and all they get is a white screen inside of the box where the advert/game should be.

It is quite the frustrating scenario, as I can not find any reason for it to happen

Thank you for the template edit


EDIT: I can not find the dbtech_vbarcade_navtab template. In my dbtech ->vbarcde folder there is no such file. I'm using the lite version, and it's not that big of a deal. I can make a navtab using one of the other mods installed (just didn't think about that until today )

Are you at least getting commas between names? Locally I get commas but they lack the spacing. Just wanted to make sure.

Do you know the browsers that those users are using? Does it work for yourself? Does scoring work when the games work?

Templates are found through your admincp. Styles & Templates menu, Style Manager link. Then dbtech_vbarcade_navtab is within the DragonByte Tech: vBArcade template group. It is definitely in the lite version.

Yes I have commas just no spacing

The users having problems with the arcade games are using (the other admin has a mac notebook and even tried safari or whatever), IE, FF, and/or Chrome (all were updated when asked and tested again with no success).

Yes scoring works just fine I myself can play the games (on FF and IE both the latest versions) on 3 accounts (admin, mod, regular member), one of my moderators can play on their mod account and their regular account.

One of my mods can't play on their mod account or their regular account (exact same permissions).

LoL silly not thinking to look where I make changes to other templates

I don't know if this has been posted already but the little menu buttons don't seem to be above the line on my forum.

http://www.mindlessjunk.com/arcade.php

Any ideas why? It's happening with the Shop mod as well.

When you say scoring works fine,which game type are you using? Tar or a feed? Feeds are great but if your members have adblock+ installed on their browser (firefox) they won't show the ads but they also won't submit the scores as the submitting of scores is also on the ad server.

Tar. I use FF mainly and I have no issues submitting my scores, or keeping them local (which is what we'll probably wind up doing).
