I am using this on my 4.2.2 site... everything is working well.

Question: I downloaded a bunch of games, used FTP to the import folder to install them.

After they are installed... do I have to leave the files in the import folder or can I delete them?


Also, any know where I could find a particular game? My users are asking for "Dope Wars".

Tried searching via google but can't seem to find any source for it.


Thanks

D.

Because there was a security patch which did not require a updated version number. If you have not installed the latest files You should do so now.

Hello I just imported my v3arcade games and Mochi games into DBTech Arcade plugin that I have just installed. I am aware Mochi site is dead and I had to download as much good rated flash games as possible before the Mochi network got shutdown.

Some of my games are working fine, but I think those Mochi games doesn't work for some reason. I got this error regarding some of the Mochi games that doesn't work:-


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

When I looked in /www/dbtech/vbarcade/systems/ the moc.php appears to be missing - only the ipa.php, pba.php and v3a.php.

And I am also aware some of the flash doesnae have the forwards compatibility for newer Adobe Flash Players beyond v12. But I am more concerned on the Mochi games that I've imported from my old Arcade plugin.

I've installed all the files but when I go to the arcade tab there are no games? Do I have to install them or does it come with some and where can I get them at if so?

Did anyone ever figure out nginx rewrite rules? I'd prefer to use this mod over the other two I've tried, but without scores saving I can't.

Not sure if I've done this properly, but I seem to have gotten it working at least.

Added this to my existing stuff for my root location block in the .conf file for my site:

And then added this in its own block in the same file:

I am not able to import the latest XML after updating the files.

I get a screen with the following:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

There is nothing special listed after that, it's a blank after that comment, and then the rest of my existing .htaccess file.

I do have the the arcade's htaccess block in my file.

It doesn't matter if I give apache access to update my .htaccess or not.

Yes, that's the error I too receive and couldn't make this mod to work on my site.

For some reason, newer versions doesn't work even if htaccess is changed according to instructions. Further info on my experience you can read this post.
