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
So was it a matter of template edits needing to be reverted on some of your styles?

Its just copy paste, right?
To the forum htaccess?
And than again the xml import?

Still geth the same asking to edit the htaccess.
Yes, and if you got the same error, you didnt apply it to the right file. The message includes the path to the file.

Any ideas why? It's happening with the Shop mod as well.
Looks like more recent versions of vb broke that part of the style, I will fix it soon.

I have a forum block functionality ready, but trying to decide if I should move it to its own addon.

The import method has no bearing on scores (the end results of each are stored locally). However, scoring system matters. Tar games are usually ipa type and need the .htaccess working

The error message should have included the instructions on what to do with it - namely that you need to edit it into the .htaccess file specified and import the product again. If you get the same message, then you did not edit the right thing.

If anyone has trouble with getting .htaccess edits in properly, PM with both the contents of your original, and what vBArcade wants you to use, and I will respond back with the completed one.

Also - I am improving the installer on automatically detecting where it can insert the code it needs to cut down on the confusion

I edited the xml and added another &nbsp; and it works for all styles (only 2 ).

For some strange reason the other admin can now play all games (neither one of us made any changes since my last post) so now I'm uber confused

Noticing a little odd behaviour in how this the mod seems to interact with other mods, hoping someone here might be able to assist.

Okay, so the mods in question are...
[DBTech] vBArcade (vB4)
[DBTech] vBNavTabs - Navbar Tabs / Tab Management v1 (vB4)
and the vBulletin integration plugin for Photopost 8.03.

Okay, so as you can see on our forum homepage...
http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net
...the tabs for the Gallery (created by the Photopost plugin), the Arcade (created by this mod) and the Social Groups (created by the DBTech vBNavTabs mod) work fine

Likewise, if we go to the page for social groups, using the tab created by DBTech vBNavTabs...
http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/groups/
...all those tabs are still there and working properly

But if we go to the Arcade, with the tab this mod creates...
http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/arcade.php
...the tab for the gallery is missing

The oddest thing though....if I then turn off the tab in this mod, and try creating an Arcade tab with DBTech vBNavTabs, I get the same thing. The Gallery tab vanishes.

I have no idea if the error lies with this mod, or with the Photopost integration, or what it is, but it's a very odd situation regardless. Any ideas why this would be happening, and what we could do to fix that from happening?

Well this keeps getting better and better ... now he can't play any of the games. Again nothing has changed so I'll have to contact mohi or whatever and see what they say.
