You will need to configure Windows to display known file types, at the moment this is not selected.

Your Webserver is waiting for requests to process and sending back.
Your error.log logs misleading requests he gets and other errors.

[Sat Oct 01 14:32:46 2011] [error] [client ::1] script 'C:/xampp/htdocs/signup.php' not found or unable to stat

This is one of that misleading request attempts. You can see the time the request arrived, the status, the requesting IP (in your case ::1 which is your own pc) and the error, in that case, that the file C:/xampp/htdocs/signup.php can't be found.

But someone (you) have typed in that request in the browser. Someone typed in http://signup.php and apache searches that file in his folders.

Is this a windows version of the game or a Linux version often the Linux versions do not have file name extensions and won't work in XAMPP for Windows.

Your Apache does have a base directory. By XAMPP default thats \xampp\htdocs\
So if you request http://localhost/signup.php it will search a signup.pgp file inside his base directory.
If you would request http://localhost/folder/signup.php it will search for signup.php in \xampp\htdocs\folder\

Yeah, i think that will make some things more clear

neither of these links work for me..they give me the same page with this error:

Do you have any more files without extensions as this may take us back to the Windows known files issue.
