Hi, Admin,

Nothing is happening when I upload a game, for example (pacman.zip). No response or status.

If you have HTML5 upload enabled in the Arcade admin & your OS has the Mod Security module enabled it will likely fail.
Either disable Mod Security in your OS or disable the HTML5 upload script in the Arcade Admin.

Note that disabling the HTML5 upload script in the Arcade admin will give you an issue with large game files or gamepacks.
You can always use FTP to upload compressed game archives to the Games folder path if necessary.

The best course of action is to disable the Mod Security module in your OS.
The HTML5 upload script uploads files in 1MB "chunks" therefore it should be able to handle most file sizes.

The only other thing that may cause your issue is permissions with the Games folder path.
It should be set to 0755 which the arcade attempts to do upon its installation.

Do you have any errors in the SMF error log after a game upload fails?
If so then please post a quote of the error(s).
