    Hi guys! I'm new to this forum and new to xF. Been using phpBB for a couple of years and recently switched over to xF.

    I stumbled upon this great add-on by XFRocks: XF Arcade 0.2.0 Testing - but he seems to have abandoned the project - such a shame.

    When trying to add new games (the pre-installed works fine) I get this error:
    Code:
    Server Error
    
    include_once(Archive/Tar.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory

    This is because Archive_Tar isn't installed and I've tried to look at the installation guide, but is way too heavy for a xF-noobie like me :D

    Can anyone guide me through it? Would be very much appreciated!:chewiedance:

    Has XFRocks definitely stopped development on XFA? :( I know sometimes it takes a while for him to respond to stuff.

    For your issue... are you on shared hosting or a VPS? If shared hosting, have you asked your host to install PEAR archive for you? If on VPS, do you have PEARS archive installed?

    If you're not familiar with it, you can check here for info about PEAR: Archive_Tar

    Hi Kevin.

    Yes I think so. No updates for quite awhile.

    I'm on shared hosting and they do not support installing PEAR on the server.
    I've found out that it can be done manually though. If I make a folder in root (pear) and copy the files to that and make a it accessable either through ini_set or .htaccess - but here comes the problem - I'm in no way skilled enough to do that :(

    If you don't have the games installed where are the Champion flags coming from? :cautious:

    I tested the games, mainly to see if the scoreboard worked and then deleted them afterwards. But the champion flags are still there:banghead:
