If your SMF forum resides in a sub-directory server path then you may have problems saving scores for some games.
In this scenario, a game may redirect to the parent directory of your forum path whilst showing a 403 path error.
Your solution is to adjust your server config or add a server config file in the main server path.

ie. for Apache
Main website url path is:
SMF url path is:

Use FTP or your terminal to create a .htaccess file in your main server path for "" (not your SMF path but possibly its parent path)

htaccess possible contents:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} act=Arcade
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !forum
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}/forum/$1 [NC,L]
