That upload script uses JavaScript and if there are any errors on the page in JavaScript from something else then it will fail.
It is up to every forum admin/owner to ensure their website is running error free.
A simple way to check for JavaScript errors is to use: right click -> inspect -> console ... if you do this then you will see the errors and can fix them.
The errors should be fixed starting from the top & then recheck the page/container. Usually one or more errors (shown at the top of the console list) will have a cascade effect causing errors that follow.

Aside from that tidbit of info, you can disable your blocks in the admin section.
Other than testing stuff, there's no point showing blocks in admin.

I disabled them in admin for you: Admin -> Simple Portal -> Configuration -> Block Settings -> Hide Blocks in Forum Areas -> Admin (checked & saved)
... that should fix your upload problem but you should still fix your JavaScript errors.
SMF Arcade Block Codes / Re: Drop-Down Category Block

It changes the champ block & the list.
The arcade keeps track of multiple list criteria (game type & category).
If you want to reset the list then use the ARCADE button in the toolbar located on the left side of the arcade template.


I found this game on your Arcade and looked at the scores.
It is Yeti Sports Albatross Overload.

The scores are not duplicates, they are different scores with different score times.

If you want to set it up so that a user can only have one score per game or a specific number of scores per game then you need to go to Arcade settings and set the number of allowed scores per game from the setting: "Maximum Scores (per player per game)".
A setting of 0 makes it unlimited and this is the default setting until you change it.

I can see 2 entries with the same name but do they both show the exact time & score?
Some games are incorrectly coded for saving the score but the Arcade is designed to detect & thwart such an occurrence.

Can you upload the game here in this thread for testing?

This block has been updated for the latest arcade version.
I took out the option for playing a game by name although I may add that at a later date.
For now it goes by game id# or random.

The game id can also be in the URL using "game" as a parameter which might be useful for a portal page.

I found an old backup of this forum with most of the old content!
Although, as with many of the block codes this had to be reworked.

This block code is now available in the first post of the thread.

I updated this block to work with the latest version of the Arcade.
You will need to download the zip file & install it via your packages manager so that it can add icons to your arc_icons folder.

I couldn't remember if there was a .htaccess.
As long as it has the index.php so no one can access the directory via a browser.

You should always check the arcade maintenance to see if there's a sub-routine to do the task you're after.
I usually have something in there if I foresee someone having issues in some regard.
You can always ask here at Webdev what a particular maintenance function will do prior to using it.

There is a maintenance task to purge your download folder and you are better off using it. Do not delete the index.php or .htaccess files from that folder.

Navigate to your general arcade settings and ensure that "disable saving archives" is checked.
