Hi Chen,
  I'm a total newb about setting up the the arcade saving new scores.

Because every time I play a game it takes me to a blank page.

http://dmtclan.com/Games/index.php?act=Arcade&do=newscore  <== this is my test site

Do I create " arcade.html52.js " and put everything you posted in it?
Where do I put it?
Or Does it get copied into the index.php?
I'm so lost. :o

The game I installed is Jewel, which is a html5 game.

Sorry for all the post... I didn't see how to modify my previous post.
I'm using SMF 2.0.17 by the way ;D

The reference to the file is for people that want to adapt/edit games to save on this arcade that normally would not do so.
Almost all the games you download from here or the sites in the games resource list should already work on this arcade.
If they save a score on this website or any other SMF Arcade website then they should work on your site.
Almost all the IBP Arcade HTML5 games should also work & save score for your arcade.
There must be something in your site settings or arcade settings specifically that is causing the problem.

  • Ensure your website is properly set up using TLS/SSL ( https )
  • Ensure your website path & url settings are correct
  • Ensure the arcade path & url settings are correct
  • Ensure the games directory is set to: Games
  • Do not use Pretty URL's modification or any other modification that alters the default URL structure

Thanks for the reply, Chen ;D
Everything checks out with everything you wrote.
Could it be that the game settings is incorrect?
I attach a picture of it.

That looks correct.

In your arcade admin for Url to Games & Path to Games Directory, did you click on the recommended links to adjust those settings & then save those settings?

Chen Zhen

Actually that game is HTML5 v2 .. not v1.
When you installed that game it should have set it properly.
Did you edit that saving setting?
Change it to IBP HTML5 v2

Phantom_Hugger

I put it back to this after I had tried it originally at v2 ibp.
Figured let me try it at v1 to see if this made a difference.
I took the picture, then put it back to the original settings.

The game works but after playing it... but still goes to the blank high score page.

I tried one more game, installed Plumber Duck same thing happens.

Even when I check the High score tab, it's empty

Attaching pictures of arcade screen and high sore tab screen.

From the list of things to check you stated all is ok but your site is not secure.
You need to set up SSL ( https )

Phantom_Hugger

OMG! I forgot that This site is not Https
I'll install it on my main site now and see what happens, which is https ;D
I'll get back to you :)

Same thing happens at my main site.
https://phantomhugger.com/Games/index.php?act=Arcade&do=newscore
It's going to a page that doesn't exist.
This is for Jewel Dash

This is driving me crazy  :o lol

"Games" shouldn't be coming up in the url for saving a score.
I can take a look at your admin settings if you want to grant me temp access but that is up to you but do that in a PM.

Phantom_Hugger

I might take you up on that , Chen 8)
Weird thing I installed your game packs:
Gamepack 23
HTML5 v1    

Gamepack 24
HTML5 v1    

Gamepack 25    
HTML5 v1

And all these games worked perfect!

I think for now, I'll keep using your awesome packs and figure things out on a later date.
I'm so busy with video editing, recording and streaming. ;D
I'll talk to you again, Chen.
I did give you access as a member for now on my forums.
Thanks again for a awesome program, Chen and all your help.

If that game type is working then your settings should be correct.

Are there any errors in the log after trying to save a score from a IBP Arcade game?
