Upgrades

v3 Arcade v1.0.2 - Bug fixes and new features
° This release makes all games on the Arcade main page appear in the order which they were installed, regardless of whether or not it has been played. (With the newest games at the top.)
° It includes a page navigation system, allowing users to browse games by page. By default, 10 games appear per page.
° There is also a new search feature, for finding games by name/description. (Accessible through the "Search" menu in the navigation bar.)
° This release should be less CPU intensive than previous versions.

Arcade Stats Extras
All this does is add two stats to your Arcade's main page:
1) Total number of games played.
2) The length of time spent playing them.

Setting Changes
Arcade Awards are no longer displayed in the postbit, as there are now too many games. They are, however, now displayed in the member profile.

Some games ( plops, and chopper for example ) automatically submit your score, which is really annoying ( especially for fast-played games ) is it possible to turn this off, and just submit when YOU want to?

( this is extremely important to me, and I'll cut one of my fingers off for every day you don't adress this issue ) :D

No, that's how they are coded, and actually all games should be coded like this in my view. It's now encouraged within the converters' circles.

Are there any games more like Super Mario or something? Mazes, RPG, stuff like that? So far the best one up there is Towerball IMO, and Pac Man.

Are there any games more like Super Mario or something? Mazes, RPG, stuff like that? So far the best one up there is Towerball IMO, and Pac Man.Yes, there are much better games, but their conversion hinges on two issues: the copyright and the availability of the source code. Games whose source code is freely available with permission to be modified are typically not of the best quality.

The author of v3arcade plans on releasing a commercial, licensed "v3ProArcade" soon (no release date has been established yet), including

- Tournaments/championships
- Team based play
- An optional, vB independent system for a standalone Arcade
- A more professional interface
- netPlay integration (multiplayer games)
- Priority support
- Rapid game releases
- Game choosing and installation through the admin CP
- Custom game releases, based on a bi-monthly vote
- Access to optional addons
- Integrated, live Flash chat
- And a ton of other stuff I'm not announcing yet. ;)
Allegedly, he has the game and copyright issue already sorted out:



Some thoughs that came to me when reading the replies of this post:
- The arcade hack needs of good games to be sold.
- You need the .FLA source file to convert games to v3 arcade
- Unless you're a game programmer, you need to download free public
FLA's (which the most are crappy or mediocre games) or you have to
convert games that don't belong to you.
- Then, you will make money from other people's games and there, i'm sure
you will have legal/finantial problems. (cause authors will claim $$ for their games if you're going to make money, or you just will have to remove their games)
- Finally, you will have to charge people for these games and...
not many webmasters will do it , or i don't think you can make profit of it
after paying licenses and commisions

so... i would suggest you this:
let the hack/games free and avoid legal problems.
Let the v3 arcade community grows ,
search the web for Sponsors and make money that way.
(just suggestions that i would do.)lol, I know you mean well, but I already know exactly what I'm going to do.

Obviously, I'm not going to be selling any games written by other people without consent - people won't even need a license to access the swfs. I already have the gaming side of things sorted.
I told him I'd pay him $1,000.- if he can get Tekken Tag Tournament (http://www.namco.com/games/tekkentag) multiplayer, and invents a new technology to sort the lag issue out. :P

Not that I'm too eggscited about that, maybe more people can't submit scores?

Or is it just me being egg-banned?

You mean the 4,294,967,295 score in Flexi-Combat?

That's a known bug apparently affecting some installations but so far the converter of the game has been unable to reproduce it, so there isn't a fix yet.

I saw a forum where the Minigolf high score is 177 - something which is logically impossible since you start off with 118, and a point is taken off for each shot. So logically you can't score more than 100 since there are 18 holes. :|

Thorburn
Sunday, April 25th, 2004, 02:49 PM
Hmmm ... okay, I looked into this again. I know there is an updated version that counts 180 minus score instead of 118 minus score in order to avoid problems with negative scores for losers that need more than 6 puts on each hole on average.

Thus, 155 on the updated version would be 93 on the original version.

Apart from the way the score is calculated, there are no differences a. f. a. i. k., thus I didn't want to update because if I do, all old records would be easily broken and all your efforts so far would have been pretty much in vain. ;)

I don't know about a version where one can reach 177? Maybe there is another update that counts 180 plus 18 minus score? What does it say when you play it?

The version I looked at also starts at 118, yet some people manage to score 177. I believe it is some bug in the game. I will check it out....

If that's so, that might be why they released the fix.

Are you losing your touch Njord?...he he...come on...I know you will conquer me.. ;) :P

Actually the game in question , Flashbert (Q-Bert)...the character reminds of a little jumping Jew, avoiding the wraths of Nazism ...i.e..the bouncing red balls (they should have Swastika's on them)....ha ha ha ha ha. :D ....maybe that is why the game is not very popular here on this forum...ha ha. or I just have a strange sense of humour... :D :D

What do you say we have a poll to determine what games to remove?

There are too many games I think, some are fantastic, but others are sheer crap.
Some are not played much, but deserve to stay there ( hexxagon, all the ( what's plural for tetris anyway? :)) Tetri :D, Pinball, Mini Golf, Helicopter and others ).
