Thanks for the info UD.

It wasn't a case that I couldn't upload at all, I was disabling the block when uploading anyway I was just bringing it to your attention in case it was an arcade issue. I have now resolved the issue thanks to your input the Wordsearch block was giving a lot of errors, so I've now removed it.

I have checked the html uploader and it's working as normal

Everything is working fine until I decide to upload new games via the html5 uploader (using the standard uploader is fine)

I have found out, through process of elimination, that the uploader will not function while I have the 'Friends Of Quizland' scrolling block running. The block is part of Simple Portal 2.3.7. If I disable the block in the portal settings then it's fine and I can upload game files. The code is as follows;

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
    var ob = $('.scrollingtext');
    var speed = 100000;
    ob.bind('marquee', function() {
        var tw = ob.width();
        var ww = ob.parent().width();
        ob.css({right : -tw });
        ob.animate({ right: ww }, speed, 'linear', function() {
    ob.hover(function() {
    }, function() {
        var tw = ob.width();
        var ww = ob.parent().width();
        var cur = parseInt(ob.css('right'), 10);
        var speedDecrease = 1 - ((cur + tw) / (ww + tw));
        ob.animate({ right: ww }, speedDecrease * speed, 'linear', function() {
 text-align: center;

Thanks very much UD. There is an .htaccess file in the 'Games' folder.

Quote from: Chen Zhen on October 27, 2021, 08:28:10 AMThere 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.

UD there is no .htaccess file in that folder. I have checked the test site version too there is only an index.php

Thanks for the reply.

I have now checked the box and will delete all the files in the folder again.

A couple of weeks ago I happened to see my usual cron backup ran at over 1GB. I investigated and found that the 'games_download' folder had over 800MB of files in it. As I was pretty sure these files were now not needed as the games were installed I deleted them.

Yesterday the cron job ran and for some reason the files have returned. See attached images of what I mean. I haven't run a restore on my files so this is a bit odd.

Do the files need to be there or can I delete them again?

You need 3 files... ruffle.js, & XXXXX.wasm (the wasm file has a different scrambled name each release).

Thanks I have updated mine

Quote from: Ronald on September 24, 2021, 11:59:37 AMDave if you get an error when opening a flash game, check the game, if it's a AS3 or V32 game, ruffle will toss an error.

In order to play the  v32 and AS3 games, you'll need to use Palemoon Browser

Thanks Ronald

I started from scratch on my test site with the flash games working on the Lamartine theme. I gradually added or omitted the code in the index.template and index.css files and have now managed to get it all working as it should on the quiz site.

I haven't got the foggiest notion why it failed in the first place, but there you go.

Ok I have removed all instances of ruffle code in the index templates but for some reason the Lamartine2 theme will still not play flash games, the SMF default and one of Crip's old themes 'Epic2' that I'm messing with work fine.

I'm going to play some more with the index.template as I believe this is where the problem is, I'll try the original template that came with the theme to see if it works and then go from there.

Thanks for the replies

Quote from: Chen Zhen on September 19, 2021, 10:09:54 AMRuffle's web hosted files have been temporarily halted due to coding issues at the source.
The most recent working files are from Sept. 14th.
When those files are available you can update them manually by downloading the package and extracting only the ruffle.js and XXXXX.wasm files. Delete the ones in the arcade arcade_scripts/ruffle directory and replace them with the new ones.
I am going to introduce a way of updating them via arcade maintenance.

QuoteIt's worth noting that the ruffle code is still in the SMF Default index.template.php

You should not have any ruffle.js file inclusion in your SMF main index.template.php file.
The arcade ensures the file is loaded in its game template and having it load twice will cause errors.
Attempt to remove that edit to your main SMF file, clear the browser cache, use the default SMF theme and test it again.

Note: Air Sk8ing currently works on this website.

Thanks for the reply.

I'll check it all out in the morning.

The ruffle update idea is a good one

OK it seems the ruffle error is related to the Lamartine theme I'm using for some reason. It works fine on SMF Default.

I have checked and although I did delete the code for the index.template.php, as the ruffle code was now built into the Arcade 2.6.5 version, I have now added it again but it still doesn't work. It's worth noting that the ruffle code is still in the SMF Default index.template.php

There is nothing in either the server error log nor the site log. This is the ruffle error I get:

I seem to have a lot of flash games that will now not work and come up with the 'Ruffle' error. I have checked in 'Admin' to ensure that '+& Added: Ruffle Emulator library to allow flash support (can be disabled in Admin)' is not disabled and it's not. So not sure why this is happening as almost all my games were tested to see if they were mobile friendly and the descriptions were edited to say whether they are or not.

At present I am just reporting the games so they come off the board temporarily.

Will ruffle be updated separately or when there is an arcade update?

Also has anyone noticed the ruffle site now doesn't allow downloads of the 'Browser Extension' or 'Website self hosting files'?
