I would like to submit an updated zip file to play Shako with Zillions-of-games. How can I do that?

I have changed this page's URL from /zillions/zShako to /zillions/Shako, and you can now upload a new version of your Zillions file with the File Manager. Just make sure it has the same filename.

Also, I changed the ItemID for this page from zShako to MZShako, and I changed the ItemID of the rules page for Shako from Shako to MSShako. This latter change does not affect the URL of that page, but it was necessary, because it stops /zillions/Shako from loading the rules page. As far as I know, I made all necessary replacements in the database. But let me know if anything is off.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra.
