can you test this game Chen PLz see if it works for you...

Skhilled

I just tried it and it didn't work in Chrome or FF.

vince

Yeah me either , maybe the man Chen can do a small update to the arcade for this type of game to work

vince

It works fine on my phpbb 3.3 board

vince

I also have candy crush that does the same thing , if Chen can get these type to work I will share all the games like this here

Skhilled

I haven't played with phpBB for awhile and used to have the arcade a few years ago...I tested it for a spell.

vince

Yeah all the html5 games I have I paid for are for the new phpbb arcade but there's limitations if you don't donate each year witch I find kinda ridiculous that's why I want to switch to simple machines arcade . I have no problem donating to Chen and his team simply bc of that reason.. I also have  hundreds and hundreds of flash games but as of December 2020 browsers are no longer support flash..

Skhilled

Yeah, kind of sucks about flash but they're doing it cause of the security issues....too many to keep up with probably. I have maybe 5000+ flash games. It's a shame you can't convert them to another format or something...

vince

yeah i hear ya you can convert them to exe and play them off line but thats no fun lol

As far as I can tell those games use an ajax call on http instead of https.
If you have apache (or nginx, IIS, etc.) auto changing http to https from the main forum directory, the browser thinks it's a cross origin frame error.

I am able to alter the .htaccess in the "Games" folder path to fix this problem.
The same goes with a web.config file for IIS, however I'm not familiar with the Nginx equivalent.

Also note that the Jelly Jump game seems to take 4 or 5 seconds to send its ajax call (score submit).
The arcade will not open the comment editor because of this but it will save score.

Score loop error logging is for bug tracking which is exactly what you're using it for at the moment.
However it can be disabled in arcade admin so long as your games are not showing any problems.
What I mean is, when you get to the point of no game issues you can disable that option unless you want to debug a game (or games) that show a problem with scoring. Sometimes games cause that error to be triggered but they do not have any issues.

The undefined error you reported is an issue with new game notifications.

Thanks for the report.

Can you test something?

Using your FTP platform, edit the .htaccess file located in your Games folder path.

../Games/.htaccess

Add the following code to the bottom of the file and save it:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off

Download the attachments and place them in the ../ArcadeSources path (rewrite the old file).

After doing those things, test those games again and let me know if it works.

vince

replaced files and editied the htaccess file

same thing happening, score loop for jellyjump and i have to close restart browser
and keno doesent load at all
