Installing games in the arcade takes time, I keep getting timed out, and it is getting annoying.

Is there a way of extending the time that the ACP will stay open, say 1 hour or more.
Thanks
Ron.

An hour, it should not take that much time to install a game. Are you installing more than one at a time. ??

50 at a time if the speed is there. Last night installed close to 500 games, got timed out a few times.

I know its a safety feature, but they must be a way to extend the length of time.

I'm sure there is. I'm not sure where in the files that would be though. I have not dug into the arcade ever to make changes.

I believe disabling admin security under Admin | Server Settings | Security might work.

Not an advised practice...  I'd put it back after the downloads.

First, trying to upload that many games at once on a VPS is not advisable. Mostly, because most VPS server do not have those kind of resources, unless you are on a dedicated server.

Also, you will be taxing that server and probably taking resources away from your other users causing their sites to slow down. Since games can vary greatly in size, I suggest that you break them down into smaller chunks which will free up more resources for everyone.

You could also change your php's max upload settings as well has a few of the other settings so the server may be able to accomodate the amount of files as well as the file sizes.

SMF Arcade only allows for 50 at a time, but you can get more downloaded.

I am on a Shared Host, so will be limiting my game amount to maybe 15 to 20 thousand games.

I don't know a thing about changing the php max upload, have no clue how it's down.

Did around 300 games this morning, was ok, no time outs.

Thanks Shawn, I may try this, but no to keen on disabling security.

Yep.  And the 1 hour admin timeout is a security measure.

Thanks, I'll learn to live with this.
