I am trying to run this package since upgrading the forum did not solve the score issues.  How exactly do you run this install? 

Suga

Figured it out!

Guess what?  This fixed the not saving score problem!!!  Thank you.

i can't see the link to download it thanks

Chen Zhen

The forum was reworked at one point where some of the older links and files are no longer valid.
I can make another tool to remove all database columns related to SMF Arcade & E-Arcade.
Just give me until later in the week when I should have some spare time to do that.

Are you attempting to install SMF Arcade over an older installation of E-Arcade or are you just removing anything arcade related in general?

Chen Zhen


As promised...

I get this from that link:

"An Error Has Occurred
You haven't selected a file."

Perhaps it was a permission setting.
I set it to allow all membergroups.

Try it again.

that great thanks Chen Zhen

Handy tool Chen, thanks.

I'm assuming just installing this mod does the removing of the arcade tables with no other user interaction.  And on uninstalling the mod it also deletes itself from the package manager?

Chen Zhen


Yes that's how it works.

lurkalot

Thanks.  It worked nicely, as far as I can see everything arcade related has gone from my database.  8)

I wanted to start over with a clean arcade is the reason I needed this.  I also got rid of all my old flash games.  Just need to find some new ones that don't rely on flash, and then start to set it up again.

Since you have access to the beta/rc section, I suggest you use the newer RC version of the arcade.
It will allow some of the old flash games to work without the need for flash support in the browser itself.

Keep in mind that only some flash games work and even fewer of those can be controlled on mobile.
Almost all of the HTML5 games work on mobile/tablet and desktop/laptop but there are a small amount that don't work on mobile (maybe 10 - 15 of them).

This is assuming you use Apache.. if you do not use Apache then just use the stable release version.
The IIS or Nginx support for the new plugin has not been added yet.

lurkalot

Yes running on Apache. Thanks for the heads up.  ;)
