If it asks to insert this line.
'include($phpbb_root_path . 'arcade/includes/constants.' . $phpEx);'
then we do not do it because you do not need it.
Since it is already included in the main constants.php.
I hope you understand

arcade ultimate challenge RC8 This is compatible with the new arcade version.

the errors are gone but the tournament box still isn't appearing. I double checked the template files, the edits are there. I'm going to ask the mod author about this

Also jesschen why do you have more than 100 mods installed? That takes a lt of work to update each of them and any of them can go wrong at any time.

And that's a good idea?
For my forum setup, very much so. I've only given the arcade mod files a cursory glance, but would it be a very difficult thing to configure?
Currently there is no such setting.
I still do not see the point.

Example:
The user is looking for a short game, such as 'helicopter'

3 seconds to play and saves the score, for example, gets 3 points for this reward.
So the user quickly accumulate a number of points.

I think that is a bad idea.
I'm trying to combine several mods, including arcade/ups points/easy shop with the dynamic avatar alpha mod. I want users to be able to earn points for attempting games(even if they don't set a new highscore) so that they have a method of earning points besides forum-based activities, since those points won't be used like they are in most points-based forums to buy and accumulate "icons" or post-style recolors, but to actually buy items that user's can wear on their dynamic avatar. Its a bad idea for people who have forums that don't have any real activity to do with their points, but for a forum based around avatars it would be very useful.

Especially since the shop mod lets you set the price of the items you sell in it. If users do accumulate a ton of points rapidly, I can raise the price of the items in the shop to compensate.

Seem less like a bad idea?

It seem like a real bad idea, your users can just start a lot of games without finishing the games to earn enough points for buying some stuff for their avatar, i think it would be a better idea to let them earn the points, you could end up with all your users have point's enough to buy all you have.

If it stays set to users only being able to earn points for high scores, only a select handful will earn ANY points from the games, much less enough points to buy items.

Maybe 1 point every five minutes or something...? Some incentive for playing the games...need to find a happy middle ground between the spammers who will just leave open games to earn points and the actual users who will want to earn points for playing games, but aren't necessarily good enough to set new records.

A middle ground would be points for playing the games - upon the score being submitted.
