Also when I go and use the editor whilst the trophies are disabled the editor looks a mess...

Arcade turned on.



Turned off.

Verify those, try importing again, and let me know.
you need to update your how to file as it does not say that on it

Its not just the games that are a problem, the entire arcade is all over the place, using on my test site is great on firefox etc, but on IE7 its just gash...

I have attached a pic of the arcade on dragonbyte-tech.com as it looks on ie7, same as on my test board.

Quick edit, does the same on IE8 too.

Thats actually just a minor bug when you dont check anything at the bottom before importing. It has no ill effects on the actual import process other than outputting the warning. Regardless, I'll be fixing it asap, but its not something that breaks anything.

Fair enough. Will get that clarified in the instructions.

Can you disable the Render Postbit Trophies plugin to see if that fixes the editor/posting?

Oh - its breaking something further down because vb doesnt work well with php errors (not that i blame it, shouldnt get the errors ). So thats really only a red herring.

To fix the bug, edit the Render Postbit Trophies plugin and find


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

replace with


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

make sure the plugin is enabled again, then both the error and the quick edit stuff will get fixed. let me know if that also repairs the posting weirdness.

ill include this in an update once i have some of the ie7 stuff taken care of

This mod displays a copyright notification in the footer of pages generated by this mod which includes:
1 Link to DragonByte Technologies homepage
1 Link to Product Description page of this modification
1 Link to Hivelocity Hosting (Lite Version only)

This seems a little excesive. The first two I can understand, but the third I do not.

While its not breaking any rules, I think its very poor etiquette, this mod has no connection to hosting companies.

Cheers for the feedback, Paul - it's appreciated.

We've discussed it internally and decided to add an option to remove the hivelocity part of the footer for anyone who wishes to on the lite version - we plan to extend this to our other mods with the same footer as they are updated.

Edit the default any game/usergroups permission to have None access.

Then create a new permission with the usergroups you want to give access to, and set to Play or Record or Score (see description for differences)
