Also 755 permission setting is very important rather than 777.
For it to work correctly you need the proper ownership set on the forum directory in the first place.
Your forum directory should be set to apache ownership.
The command to set that will depend on your Distro.
Although if you have a control panel such as Plesk or CPanel, there should be an option to set that or fix ownership & permissions.


The Arcade utility you referenced in #1 creates the .htaccess file for you.
In your case you you click on the Apache option & press save.
It puts the .htaccess file in the Games directory.
If you think the .htaccess file it creates is causing the problem then you can use the delete option to remove it.
Again, this only concerns a .htaccess file located in your Games directory.

Try what Skhilled suggests regarding permissions and ownership.
Something is awry with your settings if it is not letting website PHP files access folders or adjust permissions.
Although the line you referenced checks if it's writable to begin with.

Try using Arcade maintenance from your admin section for creating a .htaccess file for X-Frame same origin.
Select the Apache option and save the setting.

If this does not work it is possible that you previously created the file & it is causing problems.
If this is the case you can use the option on that page to remove the file.

Does the beta release allow you to install games now?

You can use the beta version that I attached to another post in this board if you wish to do that.
I will leave it available for a few days & then remove the file.
I wasn't sure if you knew how to deal with GitHub packages.
You can't just install it from the downloaded zip that you get from their site because it has sub-directories that the SMF installer does not take into account.

v2.5.7 of the arcade does deal with responsive layout although it is still in need of much work.
Mainly at this point the mobile games list template does not look proper in the SMF 2.0 branch but the game template is fine.

I will attach the beta here for a few days before removing it to make it easier for you.
Let me know if it fixes your game install problem.

I fixed a lot of things in the latest beta although there are still many things pending.
You are welcome to try the latest beta which is available from my GitHub repositories.
Look for SMF Arcade 2.57

All the mods on that page are not updated but the Arcade is as of last night.

With that version of the arcade try not to use the .gz file download.
Opt zip or tar but do not use tar.gz ... it has an issue with larger files.
Always use the HTML5 upload script if possible.
Let me know if that solved the problem.

I can't give you a time frame because there are many pending things to work out.

The game is designed that way & the install file tells it to do that.
If you are just playing it here then you can opt the popup.
For your own arcade you can click on "edit" and change the full screen mode.

If you are not familiar with localhost servers, just search for Xampp or Wampserver.
Both can be used on a PC but only Xampp is available for Mac OSX or Unix.

If you are referring to more star wars theme smileys and/or templates then I can ask the author to make another.

You always have the option of installing a localhost platform on your PC/Mac to test things.
This way you can install SMF, the Arcade & a portal.
Install a few games at that point, perhaps briefly play a few of them to create scores in the database.
After all that you can copy & paste all these blocks to see if they work & how they look.

Most of these posted blocks were for an older version of the arcade but they should work.
If any of them give you trouble just post in the appropriate thread & I can take a look.
The release that is pending has responsive display for mobile.
We are working on its mobile templates and after that is complete it will be released.
All templates have been updated but there are now going to be specific mobile templates.

I apologize for not seeing your post earlier.
You now have beta access.. just download the latest beta version 2.57 from the download section and use it instead.
I am currently working on mobile display which is taking more time than anticipated.
However it should function just fine for you other than some mobile display for the time being.
