Arrow keys change the angle of the bow, and the space bar doesn't shoot the arrow. So how do you shoot the arrow at the darn balloon??!!!

Hold down the space bar to give the shot "power" and release the space bar to shoot. Yeah, took me many tries to figure that one out!

That's the "Map Game". It "drops" 21 U.S. states randomly, and you have to drag them to their proper place as quickly as possible.

This weekend it's free, but afterwards members will have to use points to buy a 1-week arcade pass.

Hi, I think there is a glitch with the Bubble Shooter game. Tierre0 has had the highest score for over a day, with mine being second. All of a sudden their score is gone and mine is listed as the best, which it doesn't deserve to be!

update: now my top score disappeared too...wah!!!!
post #34 of 498
I have found that with the game Bloc Smart, that I got in like 5-6 levels and needed to leave, but when I left, it didn't record my score thus far. I would like to see on some of the games like those that can take a while to be able to leave and have it record your score to that point. Not to be able to go back and keep going but to end there and still have a score. But since it is just a game, it's not really a big deal either way but thought I would mention it. There is another game as well that I was thinking of in the same way. I will see if I can remember the name of it in a second.


I can't remember off hand... But.. Those are my thoughts thus far!

Anyone have any details on creating "tournaments?" Do you have to find another user, or is it just for whoever decides they want to play? I'm just curious.
I think the PM notices of your being beat are cool! It keeps you on the ball!

There seem to be glitches with several games, some of which might be "correctable", while others aren't. It's being worked on, meaning some changes have already been made, and others are sure to come, but I doubt that 100% accuracy can be achieved, so some games should probably just be played for fun, rather than in a competitive manner.
post #37 of 498
Yeah, I realise that.

I also noticed with the new game BRIII: Gemini that it doesn't seem to end. Just keeps going, no pause, no end, nothing. But.. Just noticed.

I think I'm addicted to balloon shooter. Good thing I have plenty of points.

i couldn't figure out how to make the cue hit the ball in the pool game...
post #40 of 498
Just use the mouse to pull the cue back, holding down on the left mouse button and release to shoot. Some of the instructions for the games are definitely lacking...
post #41 of 498
Oh, on the tournaments, you can create them and either personally invite someone or just leave it open to whoever sees that there's a tournament and wants to play.

on one, i clicked on the 'instruction' tab & they were in japanese/chinese! [i can't tell the difference ]
thanks!
post #43 of 498
still won't work. it pulls, back, releases, then nothing maybe it's a browser thing?
post #44 of 498
I played it in firefox no problems. If the square is around the cue ball you have to click on it first, then move your mouse cursor back along the cue and click on it - watch the power bar to see how far back you are, you may not be hitting it with enough force

Hi first off I wanted to say that I love the arcade!! Thanks for putting it up for us!! I am having a problem though, I was trying ti play gold miner, and it keeps locking up in the loading screen on the story mode. I have tried it twice and it locks up at the same place. I haven't had any trouble with the other games so I wouldn't think that it is my computer. Thanks again for the fun games!! (and the help)
post #47 of 498
I think its great
post #48 of 498
I have a problem with Bricks of Egypt. It keeps pausing on me when I am trying to play it.
post #49 of 498
Just what I need... another reason to NOT work and spend time on TCS isntead.
post #50 of 498
Lovin' the games!
I'll have to start earning more points now!!
post #51 of 498
Yep, there is definitely something wrong with the Easter Egg Match game and the score.

There was someone with 1000 points more than me and yesterday their score disappeared and mine with 15,550 then became the highest score. Today about 24 hours later my score is gone, replaced with the person that had the next highest score of 13,750.

Unless it's intentional, it seems that high scores only remain for 24 hours before being deleted by the server.
post #52 of 498
i had a problem with the typing test game. i played it several times, getting a higher score each time - but i only recorded my 1st score
post #53 of 498
There is an issue with the game D Tunnel. It's just completly black and you can't see anything to actually play. It is going though cuz if you do move you isntantly hit a wall I think and die.

First of all, thank you everyone for playing in the arcade and for providing the feedback!

Some explanations to some of the problems raised here -

1. I am still playing around and tweaking with the settings, so things can be different from one day to another. I *think* I'm about done with it now.

2. The games in the arcade are collected from various sources. We have zero control on what happens in the games (including the advertising in them). Basically, what I do is I test them quickly on the site where I find them (where I paid to download them from btw - there's no copyright infringement anywhere), just to see that there's not too much violence or inappropriate themes. Then I download them and install. Obviously, with some games there are compatibility issues and some just plain don't work on the forums. I need your feedback here guys to help me weed out the bad ones and let us stay with a good collection of working games.

3. Some games have built-in issues with recording the scores. It has to do with programming issues that evolved over people cheating on these games (or so I've been told). If the games are nice, we'll keep them all the same, I think

4. The championship status gets updated once every 24 hours, so yes, there's a delay there. It's done to keep server loads at a lower level, but can be changed.

Could it be related to the 24 hours update issue?

I hear you on that one. I played the very same game and had to go in the middle of it and lost my score too Not much to be done about it, I'm afraid, as I can't re-program any of the games.

I think this has been covered by one of the mods, but it bears repeating, since I don't see too many people doing tournatments. I actually think it's one of the nicest features, as it brings together the gaming and community concepts.

Anyone can create a tournament and then anyone can enroll in an open tournament (i.e. one that hasn't already been filled up). You don't even have to play right away. Just sign up for it and once all the players have signed up, you can start playing. It should also send you PM's to remind you that you need to play.

I am having this problem with Vegas Goldminer so it's bye bye vegas gold miner. Are the other two giving you trouble as well? They work fine for me.

It was working fine for me. Anyone else has such a problem?

They're supposed to get updated every 24 hours, but not deleted. Are you sure it was lost altogether?

It was working when I tested it on the "mother site" but it's not working here, so bye bye to this one as well!

Have fun everyone, in about 12 hours, the arcade will no longer be open for all to play and you will need to buy a pass to get in
post #57 of 498
One more game Sammy the Salamon does not allow you to submit score. Says it can only be submitted on their own website.

Do we know how much it is going to be to play?... Cuz I am really addicted now!

Yes, I'm sure it's lost. The highest score is now the 13 thousand something instead of my higher one of 15 thousand.
