Ok It's set up on my 2.1 site and seems to be working fine. I didn't do a complete transaction but it went through to Paypal no problem

I'll install it on my test site tomorrow and check it out.
Hi Chen,

Another question for you.

Looking at the growing size of the 'Games' folder on my site. Is it possible to have multiple folders for the storage?

The reason I ask is that I use 'XCloner' to run cron jobs to back up the whole site, at the moment once a week. The size of the last backup was around 1GB and it's growing all the time. As you can see from this screenshot size.PNG

With the 'Downloads Pro' mod there is an option to enable multiple folders down.PNG

In the settings for the XCloner I can 'Excluded Directories' which means once a folder is full I can stop that folder from being backed up as it no longer gets populated with new files, therefore the size of my backup is reduced from time to time.

Thanks and regards

Hi Ronald,

Thanks for the reply. I do have a test site that I use for that purpose and believe me I have tested all sorts of ways, with permissions and membergroups etc to get it done but nothing I've tried yet works. I will look through some more options but I'm not a coder like Chen so I'm very limited on what I can do.

Is already installed on another one of my old sites that I'm still admin for and although it would do the job, the problem is that the downloads for this mod  have to be uploaded separately from the games we upload to the Arcade as they need a link created by the mod to be able to download them when someone presses the 'Download' button, which means that you'd have to upload the file and create posts for each game unless you did it in packs. The problem with packs are that you never know what you are getting and if you start 'selling' (I know it's not direct selling, but it is pretty close and I wouldn't want to go into a court of law with it) games then some people might not be happy if most of the pack they've just downloaded includes a bunch of old 2010 flash games. You could list the games I suppose but that is a hell of a lot of work.
Your site has the ideal way to give people games they want as they can play them first before downloading them, which is why I subscribed to your VIP package. In fact I'm keeping Oak and Momo busy as I keep finding games that are not working for one reason or another and then reporting them.

You can have linked downloads in the mod where you use links from file hosts but again you still have to upload them separately.

It's not actually a critical request I just thought that as Chen is so good at what he does he might be able to get it working in a future update sometime.

Thank for the ideas though it is appreciated. I'll keep testing, that's what I'm good at  ;)

Take care and stay safe

Hi Chen

On Ronald's arcade he has set it up for different membergroup subscriptions to be able to download the game files, limiting the amount they can download by what they are willing to pay for the privilege of doing it.

I have tried to sort this out on SMF but cannot do it. I can obviously set up the membergroups which I have done on my test site, even to the point of giving them the images, but when it comes to SMF Arcade permissions there is no option to limit the amount of downloads for each group. It seems it's an across the board setting for all membergroups

Now I have a few games installed, only 300 ish, I have enabled the 'Download' option but I thought I might do the same thing. I have set the current download limit to 5

Is Ronald's settings something that's easy to add in the future?
Hi UD,

Thanks for the reply.

Yes it does work on your site
Can someone reply please?
That should be version 2.6.4 btw
Morning all,

I have tried to solve this myself by trying to add the 'ruffle' script code to 'ArcadePopup-smf2.php' on various different lines. No matter what I do I cannot get the games to play in a popup or fullscreen window.

The games work perfectly OK in a normal page environment but not Popup/fullscreen.

I'm using the latest version 2.6.0 0n SMF 2.0.18. PHP7.3

The error I get is the normal 'Flash' error.

QuoteYou have not installed Adobe Flash Player, you need to install it before you can play, you also need to have javascript enabled. Install

If there isn't a fix is there a way to remove the popup - fullscreen option from the games list?

Not that they're the same but I have no problems with the quiz popup that works fine.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Quote from: Chen Zhen on January 16, 2021, 06:13:03 PMDoes it work for others now?

The short answer is no. Nothing happens if I chnage to any of the listed themes. But the theme it's now on is lighter so I can read stuff easier. In my Profile it say this is the default theme, mind you it always said that.

Using Edge I have tried it on the home page and on the profile page and no matter what I do the drop box defalts straight back to 'Forum Default' I even tried the other theme 'LunaFall' and that does the same also.

Just in case it was a browser issue I did F5 each time.
