I won't speak for itlgames, but I believe its happening to everyone and he's working on it :D
cocos2d games website tab, please read(71 posts) (25 voices)
Yep I am working on it, I think it's an issue with PHP 5.3 since we moved to the new server, as there is few PHP functions deprecated, will try to look into it soon, just pretty busy at the moment, bear with me.
No, is not the PHP deprecated, just confirmed it seems Apple has changed the way it serves the apps data so the scrapper code is failing, thanks Apple...
Will see what we can do, but for now the add functionality won't work.
Ok, fixed, I had to change the iTunes parser completely, seems to be working fine now, please shout if any more problems.
Thanks for the fix, works great now.
I trying to add my game but got this error:
Notice: Undefined offset: 1 in /var/www/cocos2d/games/scraper/iTunesAppDetails.inc on line 193 Notice: Undefined variable: INVALID_APP_ID in /var/www/cocos2d/games/scraper/iTunesAppDetails.inc on line 437 An error occured: Cannot match a valid URL to get information from.
My game ID is 430793275 (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/space-cleaner/id430793275?mt=8)
Could you please check this issue?
I am getting the "Undefined offset" error too. My app ID is 412877380. Thanks for looking into the issue!
Apple changed again the format data they provide, can't believe it... will check over the weekend.
It's fixed again, I hope Apple stops modifying the data we need to parse!
Thanks for fixing! Now it works fine.
One more question:
"cocos2d forum Username" field's comment says "We will use your username to link your game with the admin (details to come)" in the submit form here http://www.cocos2d-iphone.org/games/add/ - is it upcoming feature or available right now?
I don't see my game on user profile page.
Hi @siberiaman, the games you add under your username won't appear on your profile page, we use the forum username/password here:
I think we should put that link more obvious somewhere on the games page, to be honest I though we did, but we didn't!!
Oh, thanks! :)
Hello! Unfortunately can't add my iPad application, get the same mistake all the time: Notice: Undefined offset: 1 in /var/www/cocos2d/games/scraper/iTunesAppDetails.inc on line 301 Notice: Undefined offset: 1 in /var/www/cocos2d/games/scraper/iTunesAppDetails.inc on line 336 Warning: fopen(): Filename cannot be empty in /var/www/cocos2d/games/scraper/iTunesAppDetails.inc on line 80 Warning: fopen(): Filename cannot be empty in /var/www/cocos2d/games/scraper/iTunesAppDetails.inc on line 80 An error occured: Failed to resize image!

App id is 437808058 . Category is Books/Kids/Entertainment
Thank you very much in advance!!!
Hi, i think it's cos is an iPad app, Apple has been changing lot of times the format they provide the data, so I ay have missed the iPad format, will take a look.
@itlgames, it's not about Games website tab, but it's something simillar.
How about Cocos2D Extensions tab for GitHub Repos, that are usefull for developing games and apps, but aren't the part of Cocos2D?
Right now there's a page in Wiki, that really hard to find and looks like nobody use it.
I think this will be extra handy for different UI elements - a lot of people develops them from scratch, instead of taking some others work.
Hey Stepan, yeah, good idea, but better ask Riq, I can't really decide for anything outside the games tab. But I agree a more visible area were we can put extensions would be brilliant.
OK, i will send Riq PM right now, but i was asking you about this as a developer of this tab.
So tmy question to you is: Can you please develop Cocos2D Extensions tab, if Riq will agree with this, pleeeeeease? *Cartmans voice, asking his mom to buy him something =) *
Edit: created another topic for Extensions Tab Discussion. http://www.cocos2d-iphone.org/forum/topic/16979
Let's see what Riq says, I'm up to my eye balls at the moment with my day job, so it depend how soon you want the new tab :D
I just tried adding a game and it failed:
Notice: Undefined offset: 1 in /var/www/cocos2d/games/scraper/iTunesAppDetails.inc on line 301 Notice: Undefined offset: 1 in /var/www/cocos2d/games/scraper/iTunesAppDetails.inc on line 336 Warning: fopen(): Filename cannot be empty in /var/www/cocos2d/games/scraper/iTunesAppDetails.inc on line 80 Warning: fopen(): Filename cannot be empty in /var/www/cocos2d/games/scraper/iTunesAppDetails.inc on line 80 An error occured: Failed to resize image!
Can you send me the id of the game? And the US itunes link.
EDIT: I just tried one of my games and it did work ok.
I have the same problem as DuffResearch : i can't add my iphone/ipad game (same error message).
My game (universal binary, iphone/ipad): "Find Them All: looking for animals"
Itunes link: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/find-them-all-looking-for/id426394333
One more thing: php file "iTunesAppDetails.inc" can be displayed by the browser which is not very secured. Change you Apache (or other) config to forbid direct access to .inc files...
I will look into it. Yeah the .inc extension wasn't a good idea, is not compromising the server security but is not a nice to allow it, will change it.
Well, doesn't seems to have any error, if you try few times it works, seems like the page on iTunes fails some times, no idea why.
Ok that works, my game is now added.
Thank you !
Cut the Rope was made with cocos2d? Really?
@itlgames, could you remove all old iTraceur's from games tab please?
I will release update soon and want to have only one - last version of iTraceur there.
Here's the links of that should be removed:
http://www.cocos2d-iphone.org/games/game/itraceur-parkour-freerunning-platform-game/374163905 - this one i will readd to update soon.
If anyone would like to know - there really was 3 versions of iTraceur in the AppStore (iPad, iPhone & iPhone with downloadable videos(Mini - with really smaller distro size)) which was sold worser than one universal app with downloadable videos.
I don't think Cut the Rope used cocos2d, we recently had Angry Birds added to the games tab as well (which I disabled). I am not sure who is spammig these games, surely Chillingo don't need it, so must be someone else with lot of free time, well, you, go back to school please (shit, is summer break...)
Anyway, will disabled it, if Chilling comes back to me and confirms they used cocos2d and want to be on the games tab, will enabled.
@Stepan I disabled all your three games, not deleted, if you add your forum username when re-adding them, you can then access this admin area:

I'm trying to add my app to: http://www.cocos2d-iphone.org/games/add/
"An error occured: There were some problems communicating with iTunes, please try again refreshing your page."
I tried it just now and got: "Notice: Undefined variable: INVALID_APP_ID in /var/www/cocos2d/games/scraper/iTunesAppDetails.inc.php on line 464 An error occured: There were some problems communicating with iTunes, please try again refreshing your page."
From the comments above it appears that Apple's changed something in their API.
