Is there a way to add a game to the arcade manually using all four files extracted from the tar?

 

Also would this be a problem with files that have a gamedata folder within the tar?

 

Reason why I ask is because I have been trying to install a mahjong game but it must have the same gamename as another game as it shows up to install but doesn't show up in the arcade. There is another game with the same game 'title'.

 

The game is Dog Mahjong.

There is not a manual install, and even if there were, the game still would not install IF it has the same name as another game, the installer sees that as a duplicate and will not install it

Yes I am aware of that. Thought I could change the gamename for the one so it wouldn't be duplicated and install.

 

No worries.

it is not just changing the game name, it is the name of the SWF file, and if you change that it will not work correctly, you will get one of "those" errors that say something like score not submitted gamename mismatch (or words to that effect)

Yes of course, I had forgotten about that bit too. Been a long time since I coded any games. Thanks.

I am however, looking to see if I can add back in the "Manual" install option, might take some time, but hopefully I can get that in

OK I have the manual install working, this is going to take some testing as there were a few files that were affected by the addition of this so want to make sure that nothing has popped in the way of "BUGS"
