  1. Hello @bfarber,

    A lot of people use the key / value system for profile fields… Do you know if it's going back anytime soon in IPS?


    ​Seconded. I'd guess that new installs likely wouldn't have the problem since they'd have never experienced the key/vaue system before, but for upgrades...... eh.

    I've managed a workaround with our national flag system, but a key=value pair is invaluable for many implementations of things. Even if it was undocumented, bringing back the = would be fantastic. 

  2. Yes. It will be released for IPS4 soon. :)

    I've not yet started work on the mod upgrades, but will be able to start within the next couple of days.

  3. Sorry I'm late replying.


    Pip Popup is likely going to be upgraded, even though pips themselves have been all but removed in IPS4. In general, my intention is to upgrade all my hooks as the platform allows, as soon as possible after final release. I've already got some code ported over, but I'd like to get things tested on the final version of the suite before handing anything out.

  4. Sounds like an issue with your server configuration.... Nothing this hook does is any different to a default IPB Settings area.

    Anything in server logs linking to this hook?

  5. That's not a problem with this hook. It appears to be a problem with PHP running the chmod() function on your server.

    Does this happen with any other hooks? If it does, best to submit a ticket!

  6. Reporting games was never implemented correctly in the first place. It's actually been removed in our development copy altogether.

    White page shouldn't happen (does it happen on all games? - I never noticed it during development...), but I will try to look at that this weekend at some stage since that sounds like it'll be a relatively quick fix...

    And finally, this is a difficult one. On paper, it's not a security risk since everything being written to the database is being run through the IPB methods for protection etc. And the .swf files are copied from the .tar and never touched by the forum except for embedding it in the page (which is done through the HTML anyway). I've never known of an IPB forum ever hacked through an arcade - and all the scoring/saving systems are pretty much the same since day one. The longer answer however, is that yes, there is a chance to the user, just as there is a chance that by going on a dodgy website with flash adverts could install tracking cookies, keyloggers etc, which could of course then compromise your FTP account. The forum itself should be safe however.

  7. Not unless Collin is able to "finish" the job, no.

    Until late January time, I'm tied up quite heavily with work and university, and I'd hope by then that IPS 4 is available for us developers to work with, and then we can get a version out for then.

    What I will say though is that the current version does work if you can handle a few glitches here and there.
