View Full Version : Our new arcade is online

I've installed our new acarde (link is in the main navigation bar with a couple sub-links below it).

I couldn't for the life of me remember all the games we decided to get rid of, so I just installed most of them.

I've only tested a few of them, but it all seems to be working OK. If it's not, please let me know what the trouble is.

I've set all Golfing games for low score wins. If there are other games where low score wins, let me know and I'll reset those.

I don't see a way to reset monthly scores while keeping all-time high scores. So I'll have to get together with our Arcade crew and see how we want to do this. Suggestions are welcome. Should we completely wipe out all scores monthly, or keep all scores indefinitely.

As with everything new (especially on our new forum) the new arcade has to be considered in "test mode" for the time being. If it interferes with our forum or turns out to be faulty, it's possible that I'll simply remove it without notice.

Have fun!! :)

I forgot to mention, it looks like Quick Words is scoring properly.

I think the scoreboards need to be recalibrated on a few of the games. I played both Yahtzee and Dues Wild and am listed as the winner on the scoreboard in spite of having the lower score.

Thanks, Jadesa. I fixed those 2 and several others were set up as Low Score Wins.

I'll go through them all and make sure they're all set correctly.

Scores have been reset for August. Sorry it's a few days late, that was my fault. :(

Just noticed this the other night - seems to be working fine. I also tried the word scramble game - similar but I think I'm still addicted to Quick Words. ;)

I'm all about the Cribbage Master. Creepy-voiced Jake and I are becoming good friends.

Castlevania unfortunately still has the same problem as it did when you put it on here the first time, Kirk. The screen goes black after you get to a certain point.

Crap! Sorry, Tog. I was hoping with the upgrade...

No one is supposed to be able to beat me but other have, what gives?

I expect when I have a top score it will remain the top score. If someone does beat my score, they've clearly cheated somehow.

Oh. LOL.

So, apparently with our upgrade and new arcade there's no way to save the all-time high scores and just reset the others. The only option we have is to complete reset ALL scores, even the highest.

Is this OK with everyone or should we just not reset scores ever.

I say don't reset the high scores.

yeah - don't reset the high scores every month. Maybe once a year?

Chopper Challenge is listing low score as current champion. SHould be high score.

While you're at it, any chance of reinstalling Breakout? I quite enjoyed that one.

Chopper Challenge scoring has been fixed. Thanks for the heads up.

I've also installed 2 Breakout games. For those of you playing Breakout, let me know which one to keep.

Any more opinions on resetting the high scores?

Well, maybe annually is too long. How about quarterly?

Kirkus

Let's make a decision on if/when to reset the scores. We should decide before the first of next month.

I say quarterly.

Any other input?

Quarterly sounds about right. I was looking around online yesterday and a couple other forums with arcades reset scores quarterly.

So, Jan., Apr., July, Oct. ?

Solitaire Golf Slingo is registering low score as champion, should be the other way around.

I thought I had all those fixed. Sorry about that.

Fixed.

Isn't 247 Midi Golf supposed to be high score wins unlike the other golf games? The better I do and the faster I am, the higher my score is.
