Default Arcade

Okay since no one has asked, what is the arcade about? Are we going to have a maple boiling game to see who can get the Highest GPH or draw off the most syrup

Hopefully there is a boxing game so you can settle any differences.

Hey now! I'm reading all this stuff but trying to get a push on the actual programming. I'm going to be sick tomorrow so I can take a day and several pots of coffee to try and get some majour components added.

To answer your question the arcade is just that - games. User with the high score gets a tiny trophy added to their profile and post bit. For most of you it may seem lame but trust me on this one. There will be some members very competitive over the silly trophy and it helps bring some folks back to the site even when things are quiet. If you don't like games it will never appear in your maple discussions unless you click on the link.

Arcade is now working and champion trophies are up for grabs. The stock games kinda suck but I have a huge collection stashed away with some great ones in the mix.

I have just added the challenge system to the arcade for all the time wasters to earn bragging rights with. I have also searched through my old hard drives and found over 300 games that will work in the arcade. I do not plan on having that many! A large number of them are a waste of time or boring but there are some great ones in the bunch for sure. One of the conditions for my wife to agree to all this was I had to put her penguin games back online.

I would like to dump some of the less impressive games that were installed by default in the arcade;

Asteroids
Breakout
Snake
Space Invaders

Any objections to that?

I have also added some new ones today as I pick through my old files. 3rdgen, you may like the archery game. Place the mouse pointer on the target and click. Once you get a feel for the cross-wind indicator in the top right it's a little addictive.
