Need help installing My Arcade
#1
I am not a computer guy, yes I can install the easy stuff, but when I see a lot of files and get lost, simply don't know where to put them or where they go..
I opened a forum for Arcade Games and would like a Arcade installed..
Answer here or give me a pm message..
Thanks
Ron..

Hi,

Which Arcade plugin is it? Normally, plugins are structured in their download in the exact way they should be uploaded (e.g.: everything in the inc folder goes in your forums inc folder, etc.).

Hi euan. I would love to get My Arcade installed.. When I open the zip and see what is in there, I think to myself now where does this one go, I know the inc when opeded goes to plugins. See below is where I get totally lost..

See all these files:    

I just can't follow where most of them go.. I am by no way a computer guy, well not that good anyways..

Hi,

From that screenshot, the folders should correspond to the folders in the root of your MyBB install. So:

  • Everything in admin, inc, images, jscripts goes into the existing corresponding folders of the same names.
  • The "arcade" folder is new, and should just be uploaded to the root (so arcade becomes YOURSITE/arcade).
  • The two files "arcade.php" and "tournaments.php" just get uploaded to the root.
Hopefully that helps. If not, you can PM me with FTP details, your URL, a temporary admin account and the plugin's files and I'l install it for you Happy
