djr33 what about this possibility? I have had a person who helped me with this crawler code from here say this can be done with a plugin and they will be back after the holidays to help. But here's the problem with using a PB plugin, to store the words (info) they would use keys and they provide 10 free ones and the words would be stored on PB server. So you say what's wrong with this? A key holds about 4000bytes of info and my fear is with a long drawn out game like this 10 keys aren't enough? They will sell you keys but what if before the game ended one needed 50 keys?
Back to this crawler code, look at the photos moving from left to right at the top of my forum:
This is a plugin that the same member that said they could help me with a plugin for this game helped me make with this crawler code:
Now before we converted to the new V5 software this is how I used it on the old forum V4.
I put this code in my header:
I downloaded the JS crawler to my godaddy host:

This was how I added my photos and also the padding, size, speed color, etc.

'border': '1px solid #CC3300'
inc: 5, //speed - pixel increment for each iteration of this marquee's movement
mouse: 'cursor driven', //mouseover behavior ('pause' 'cursor driven' or false)
So could we not figure out how to make the game on the forum and store the words on my other server? I'm not going to move my forum to another server, first of all it's against the TOS of Proboards, second I've spent too many hours building what I have and don't want to start over. If I can't make this work any other way except the proposed plugin from PB so be it but I sure would like to if I can.
Thanks for listening.
