Attach 2 of the images to a post in this thread so I can test them.

Actually, it's not the environment because I figured out the issue.

You need to set the "Auxiliary User ID" in arcade settings so it knows which user id is posting in the shoutbox.
You can use user id number 1 or perhaps create a user named ArcadeBot and use its id number for that setting.

It has something to do with the sub-directory since I am able to reproduce the issue on a local installation that has that environment.
I am working on a solution & will let you know when I have a fix/update for it.

Thanks for the report.

It's been a while since I looked at that part of the code & I'm glad you brought this up.
Just put your images in the path of: ../Themes/default/images/battle/monsters/
Don't bother with any other theme & just put the images into the default theme.

I'm going to fix the installer of Battle & its expansion packs to only put those files in the default theme path.

Thanks for the report.

It's working on this site & locally.

Are you sure you have the appropriate boxes checked in your Arcade admin settings?

Hello TeamPD & welcome to WebDev.

The current version of Battle (1.17.9) requires the monster images to be put into each theme's image path.
ie. /Themes/THEME-FOLDER/images/battle/monsters
Each image has to be of type: jpg, gif or png



The next version will be using a different directory for Battle images since I realize the same files shouldn't have to be in each theme path. If you decide to place custom images in those folder paths, make sure to keep copies on your PC/Mac so you can use them in the upcoming versions.

If an up to date copy of Ruffle causes problems you can always revert to an older build.
To do this you can use the manual upload option while checking the "Force Overwrite" box.

The Ruffle website has 3 older versions available & there are also a few older versions in WebDev's download archive section.

Having a problem with your Arcade?
Have a look at this list for troubleshooting which may help you resolve a problem on your own.
If you're still having an issue, please feel free to post a support thread/topic in this board.

  • Mod-Security (Apache module/app) should be disabled
  • Varnish (Apache module/app) should be disabled
  • Forum paths & directories should be checked/adjusted
  • Arcade paths & directories should be checked/adjusted
  • Forum cache settings may need to be adjusted
  • Any improper JavaScript (showing errors in the console) from other sources may cause conflicts
  • Server config file may be necessary (ensure it exists after creation): Admin -> Arcade Maintenance -> Server Config
  • Improper SSL (HTTPS) settings
  • Improperly configured server config file ( ie. .htaccess ) in your main forum directory
  • forum resides in a sub-directory that may need a server config file in the parent directory <<-EXAMPLE CONFIG FILE-->

I'm going to use that list in a sticky so other people can troubleshoot.

No problem.

Keep in mind that the path of "forum" in the .htaccess file code from above may have to be edited with whatever unique path name is being used. The above is just an example for Apache.

Thanks for letting me know about the admin problem which is definitely a bad bug.
It should be fixed with the current available version 2.6.9.4.

If your SMF forum resides in a sub-directory server path then you may have problems saving scores for some games.
In this scenario, a game may redirect to the parent directory of your forum path whilst showing a 403 path error.
Your solution is to adjust your server config or add a server config file in the main server path.

ie. for Apache
Main website url path is: https://mydomain.com
SMF url path is: https://mydomain.com/forum

Use FTP or your terminal to create a .htaccess file in your main server path for "mydomain.com" (not your SMF path but possibly its parent path)

htaccess possible contents:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} act=Arcade
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !forum
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}/forum/$1 [NC,L]

There are several things that can cause issues as you describe.

  • Mod-Security should be disabled
  • Forum paths & directories should be checked/adjusted
  • Arcade paths & directories should be checked/adjusted
  • Forum cache settings may need to be adjusted
  • Any improper JavaScript (showing errors in the console) from other sources may cause conflicts
  • Server config file may be necessary (ensure it exists after creation): Admin -> Arcade Maintenance -> Server Config
  • Improper SSL (HTTPS) settings
  • Improperly configured server config file ( ie. .htaccess ) in your main forum directory
  • forum resides in a sub-directory that may need a server config file in the parent directory

There's also another type of cache that people sometimes install for the server itself but it's name slips my mind at the moment. I don't think you have that installed though because it causes problems with SMF itself just like Mod-Security.

Releases & Version Updates / Re: SMF Banner Bar
August 04, 2022, 12:24:20 PM
Version 1.2 is now available.

Changes:
+ Added: option to disable corner icons
+ Added: option to choose "transparent" background
! Fixed: Banner Bar set to not display in admin due to possible token conflict


I found that sometimes the banner bar html can cause a problem with the SMF 2.1 token validation within the admin section.
For now the solution I came up with is to disable the Banner Bar in the admin section.
This means to test it, you'll have to navigate to the forum.
Until I figure out how to stop it from possibly messing with the admin token, this will allow the admin to function properly.
