SMF SSI.php Functions

Current Version: 2.0

This file is used to demonstrate the capabilities of SSI.php using PHP include functions. The examples show the include tag, then the results of it.

Include Code

To use SSI.php in your page add at the very top of your page before the <html> tag on line 1 of your php file:

Code: [Select]
<?php require("SSI.php"); ?>

Some notes on usage

All the functions have an output method parameter. This can either be "echo" (the default) or "array"

If it is "echo", the function will act normally - otherwise, it will return an array containing information about the requested task. For example, it might return a list of topics for ssi_recentTopics.

This functionality can be used to allow you to present the information in any way you wish.

xx All New BYOAC High Score Competition! Game #54 (283): I'm sorry

January 13, 2020, 08:17:22 am by yamatetsu
ALL NEW BYOAC High Score Competition! Games played so far.


---------------------------
Game Name : I'm sorry
ROM Name  = imsorry
---------------------------

Settings:

   



Controls:   
    4 way joystick, punch button, jump button



The goal is for the greedy protagonist to collect all the gold bars while jumping over or defeating various enemies and obstacles in each maze-like level.
Some of these enemies are: Giant Baba (a Japanese wrestler), a moonwalking Michael Jackson, Madonna, Japanese comedian Tamori, Carl Lewis, moving statues (activated when passed by).
Some obstacles include: Gates, "fire" hydrants, safes (making it difficult to gain access to the gold), a rolling barrel, conveyor belts, and a swimming pool with platforms ranging in size and strength.
When you collect all the gold in a given level, you must cash it into a building (labeled "out" when the level begins and "in" once you retrieve all the gold) to beat the level. The player can only hold ten bars of gold at once. In later levels there are more than 10 bars of gold, so the player must make multiple deposits.

Last day: Sunday, January 26 2020, midnight Pacific Time


Happy Gaming!

xx J-Stick Ultimarc Rotary Upgrade Help

January 12, 2020, 08:38:13 pm by Gatt
Hi all,

I started installing my J-Stick rotary upgrade today and ran in to a few problems.  The biggest one being - after I installed the new shaft and spacer washers there's too much "slop" in the joystick.  Feels like about a quarter inch of the shaft slides downwards when held flat and the actuator loses contact with the microswitches, almost as if the shaft is too long.

Has anyone installed a rotary kit on a J-Stick?  Were there any issues with the actuator hitting the switches?
