ACP issues look like they are now working, was able to add a couple of categorys and bulk import some games.

Still have issue of seeing blank page when you click on Arcade. If you edit the page you see everything there - 9 modules, but when page saved its just a blank page.

I can go in and play a game by entering: http://xxxxxxx.xxx/forum/vbarcade/pl...BilliardsCombo and game plays but doesn't save score.

When on the admincp page - Manage Games - and you click play you get a funky url:

http://xxxxxx.xxx/forum/admincp/http...BilliardsCombo

And still getting the database error of "Table 'pokerlau_testvb.games_cats' doesn't exist"

Been playing with this a bit today and now do not have a blank arcade page anymore. When you edit the arcade page at first all the modules are in a group and nothing shows. I started to move them around, removed them and added them back and now they show.

Still cant get games to score. When a game is finished and score submitted a page shows for a few seconds that says "A systems error occurred" "the software has experienced a systems error" .

Are you sure the game supports local scoring? Pretty much all of the game sites that once were supported for remote scoring have since shuttered so their scoring systems will no longer function.

I am not using games from remote sites that do remote scoring. All are uploaded to our site.

The same games I use on 4 sites that have vBArcades (vb4) and have no problems saving scores are the ones I am trying on the vb5 vBArcade version.

Curious about something - when installing a vb4 version of vBArcade there was a bunch of stuff added to the htaccess file where you either added it manually or cmodded to 777. Was this changed for vb5 vBArcade?

vb4 htaccess:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on

# Set to vbulletin directory
RewriteBase /forum/

# 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 legacy scores to arcade instead
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} newscore\.php [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} viewgame\.php
RewriteRule .* arcade.php?sendscore=legacy [L,QSA]

# Send hardcoded legacy scores to arcade instead
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} func=storeScore [OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} autocom=arcade [OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} act=arcadelib [OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} act=Arcade
RewriteRule .* arcade.php [L,QSA]

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

# If you renamed your admincp directory, change it here
RewriteRule .* %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/admincp/arcade_admin.php?%{QUERY_STRING}&do=review&import= browse&system=v3a [L,R=301]
</IfModule>

All games are stored on your site regardless, but some games such as Mochi ones are scored by submitting to a remote server.

As far as I can tell, this should no longer be needed.

While I have noticed some errors in the product that have been resolved locally, I can't replicate the DB error posted before.

Could you please provide a screen recording of this issue in action?

Hi there,

Could you please try downloading a fresh copy from here: http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/store...cade-vb5-beta/ and let me know if this works for you? I seem to recall making similar hotfixes in the past, but I'm not sure if I actually uploaded them to vB.org yet.

Thanks!
