Guests are not permitted to play games on your forum which means the forum internally brings up the login page.
Although the guest attempted to access the arcade (as per the URL), your forum never allowed it.
For the moment it appears as though the error is not arcade related because it never got that far.

What is your database collation set as?
Also what is the database table named "session" collation?

Is it UTF8-Unicode-Ci or did you use some sort of mb4 collation?

vince

It's not mb4 no I think it's utf8 general I did have it set to allow them to play but not save scores and hundreds of these errors occurred so I changed it to not allow them to play to see if the error still happened and it doesn't

I allow guests to play here on the forum, use database driven sessions & don't get those errors.
Something in your OS environment is different plus that table column is for SMF sessions which the arcade does not alter.
I need to be able to duplicate the errors in order to pinpoint the problem.

Do you use MySQL or MariaDB and which version?
Can you provide a screenshot of your Server Settings -> Cookies and Sessions settings page (blank out the cookie name) ?

vince

Also the force ssl is set to disable

mysql 7.11 i think wheres the best place to find that ?

vince

i change a few settings like enabled force ssl thru-out the board, that was disabled for some reason and
Use a persistent connection was not checked, so i checked that.. logged out and registered a fake account and got no errors also pl,ayed a game as a guest and didint see any errors this time.. maybe its fixed lol

vince

segestion : when guests play at the end of the game for score saving instead of them going to the comments page can they be sent back to the arcade or to the login page or maybe add at the bottom of the comment page a message like " because your a guest you can not save any scores or leave comments, consider registering or logging in" and have the registration link and Login link  display ..

Chen Zhen

You can also allow guests to save score where they enter a name. It saves the name for the session.

I've been getting those errors for quite awhile now. I allow guests to see the arcade only. They are not allowed to play the games or save scores.

I also force https throughout the server for security reasons.
