I got these same error messages - I've created a php.ini file, saying simply:

Is this correct, and if so, where should I upload it?

Thanks!

If you did not use the import system, it wont know which scoring system to set your game to, so you must be sure you are selecting the right on yourself.

You will need to contact your host to help with that.

You can still download games from mochi to your computer, and mass-upload them to your site, and process them with vbarcade import system.

I had the same issue. Are you running a custom template? I was and once I reverted that issue went away. After that I just customized the css myself...........

You can use the import option in the ACP to get games from several sources.

vBArcade v2.0.0 Gold + Lite Released!

After a very intense development period, with much great and appreciated feedback from our beta testers, I am happy to make available vBArcade v2.0.0 gold and lite.
Aside from the usual small improvements, I sought out to make the best flash arcade tournament system ever, and those who use it give it rave reviews.

My main focus was streamlining the entire process for players, from discovering and joining, to actually playing through the tournaments.
The system intelligently handles automatic pairing and replays with AJAX, to sending alerts, to breaking ties.

vBArcade tournaments are made to reward fast players by pairing them with each other, and allowing them to continue to advance as far as they qualify.
Even if the tournament as a whole hasn't moved beyond the first round, fast players can already be attempting the third, without waiting for the rest.
At the same time, the effects of no-shows is mitigated by an enforced time limit that auto-forfeits such players, while maintaining the integrity of the brackets.

All told, tournaments become fun, fast-paced and interactive, just like the rest of the vBArcade game playing experience.

v2.0.0 Gold Changelist:

Fixed global score loading
Mochi localhost/ssl scoring support improvements
Segregated configuration settings screen
Forum block shows data type used as title if title left unchanged
Local scoring indicators during import and manage games
Consistent guest label used with champion guests
Fixed choppy arcade portal AJAX search tab
Consistent table spacing and superfluous links cleaned up
Many minor wording, layout, optimization tweaks and bugfixes

Tournaments

Any local scoring game, with unique titles and descriptions
Shown as a detailed horizontal tree, while playing the game
Auto-prune tournaments that don't reach minimum players
Convert related settings from other arcades
Dedicated tournaments page with stats and personal standings
Game specific tournaments shown on tab, while playing game
Latest tournament shown on arcade portal
Invite/Reminder Email/PM alerts, with notifications

Matches

Each tournament sets number of play attempts per match
Active match highlighted, with clear status messages
Playing all attempts optional, can be manually forfeit/completed
Enforced time limit per match, or automatically forfeit/completed
Notifications throughout, or optional reminder Email/PM alert
Remaining attempts shown with live countdown for time limit
Select between best, latest, or average attempt as match score
Optionally hide scores until match is completed
Match ties broken by first player who reached that score

Friendly Challenges

Familiar multi-round format
Players pair up, winner of each match advances
Winner of the final round declared champion
Begins immediately on final required player joining
Automatic 1 round tournament of 2 players, with preset config
Initiated from simple username prompt, while playing a game
Can disable certain games from eligibility
Auto-pruned if either player declines invitation

(there is an expanded pro list of features in the first post)

The tournament system is definitely a cut above anything else I've seen on any bulletin board arcade system. Well done, good job
