Title: Forum Arcade
Post by: Janzl on October 19, 2007, 11:04:38 PM
Hi all,

As some of you may have already noticed, there is a new button in the main menu called 'arcade'.
In this arcade you can play some games and the forum will keep track of your highscores. My intention is to convert some Vpac/Ody games to flash so we can play them here and keep highscores just for fun.

Because there are no Vpac/Ody flash games at the moment (as far as I know) I have put some flash conversions of good ol' arcade games in there.

I hope that in the future this will work with Vpac/Ody games so we can all have a little fun and competion on this forum.

Greetings,

Janzl

I tried to click on a game title but all I got was an error message saying they weren't available.   ???

I think I fixed the bug. Could you try it again and let me know if it works now?

Nope, still same message. I wonder if this just doesn't work in Safari (and a few others)?

This option has three different locations for setting permissions. Somehow I left out the eBay-elite group in one of the locations. I changed and tested it.

Could you try again please?

Games working okay now - except Donkey Kong. I think this is just the game - when I climb a ladder - my browser scrolls up and down instead!  :P

It seems that "ebay elite" members can edit comments on highscores. At least, I can edit all comments..  ;:)

Try to click the flash applet when you're about to play. Your browser is stealing the focus.

Could someone make Ody games remakes on flash to include on this section? I want to play UFO instead Asteroids ;)

The first game I am working on is Cosmic Conflict. Its relatively simple to program and I still have to learn a thing or two about game programming in Flash. So this is a nice exercise  :)

Janzl just like to say well done on the arcade

Thanks mjb! :) I thought that it is a nice addition to the forum. And if it slowly fills with Vpac/Ody games over time it might just really fit in here.  ;)
