Let's give this a go. There's a new link in the navigation bar.

NOTE: This is very much in a testing stage right now. TAT is sitting on a good server with good resouces available to it, but I don't know how the arcade is going to affect this. If it affects our forum it may be removed without notice.

I've installed 11 games to begin with. Other games are available and if this works out we can look at adding more.

If you experience problems, please post them in this thread.

Above all else... Have Fun!!



I sincerely appreciate all the comments I've received while mulling this idea around.

Truth be told, the ones that are up right now are getting a bit boring (and trying to break Koffie's score in some of them is hopeless).

Can I ask if another/better version of Tetris can be added and the one up removed? I say this because the scoring is horrible and does allow you to actually play a good game of Tetris. If not I guess I'll have to make do.

ROFL so Koffie has been banned... I think his ban should be lifted I love that he's not human. Just Kidding!

I don't know if I agree with resetting the scores but I'm sure I'm in the minority.

We have 9 new games in the arcade including Pong and Tetris 1.

A few notes on these new games...
They are of a little higher quality and are going to use more of your computer's resouces. They may take a little longer to load also (especially Sonic). I'm feeling confident that TAT's server can handle these higher quality games, but if you encounter any trouble, please let a staff person know.

Deuces Wild Video Poker:
In our regular video poker game you select the cards you want to discard. In the deuces wild version you select the cards you want to hold.

I may be removing games that aren't played as much as others. There's no reason to jam up the works if they aren't popular.

I haven't received a lot of feedback yet on the resetting of scores. Good idea? Bad idea? Let me know what you think.

Kirkus
04-27-2007, 07:01 PM
One other thing. After playing several of these new games you must submit your score... they don't all do it automatically. Before leaving the game look for "Submit" or "Submit Score" if you wish to do so.

So we have the new games of Solitaire, Black Jack and Sonic that won't consistently record scores and since the new games were added, PacMan has stopped adding scores. I also wasn't able to add a high score on Video Poker?

Has anyone else seen a problem with "Syntax" errors?

Lone-star has told me that Fruit-Smash has locked up on her a few times. Has anyone else seen that?

This isn't something I'm going to spend a lot of time on. If a game is erroring or causing other games to error I'm going to just remove it.

So I'm thinking Sonic goes away completely, I'll replace solitaire and blackjack with different ones and Video Poker has some inherent problems that Mr. O and I have discovered so it's going away also.

mmmm8
04-29-2007, 01:08 PM
I've had the Fruit Smash problems. If you've played several games in a row, sometimes it just locks up before time's up and gives you a random score of 6000

Had the solitaire issue. I thought maybe it doles out score by 30-sec intervals and maybe Shtexas made it under 1:30, since all of mine were between 1:30 and 2:00 and kept coming up as 239

Had the solitaire issue. I thought maybe it doles out score by 30-sec intervals and maybe Shtexas made it under 1:30, since all of mine were between 1:30 and 2:00 and kept coming up as 239

I never had a score come up. I've done several under 1:20 and it just says "congrats" and then proceeds to tell me that " only the highest scores will be added" or something like that. Oh well..:D

I've discovered a possible reason for the high scores not being submitted. It has to do with the cookies that TAT uses. It's especially prominent on games that take longer to play. What might be happening is that TAT is automatically logging you out after a certain length of time because it doesn't see playing a game as being active.

Next time you login make sure the "Remember me" box is checked. This might fix the problem. If it doesn't, let me know and I'll change the length of time that TAT will allow you to be inactive and we'll give that a shot.

I've removed Tetris 2, Video Poker, and Sonic because of scoring problems. I've fixed the scoring on Solitaire to show the low score as the best score. I'm hoping this will fix the scoring problems we were having with it.

I've also added 1 new game -- Flash Golf.

All game scores have been reset.

Because we're beginning the first full month with the arcade, how about if we reset the scores on the first of every month. Before resetting them I can record that months high scores, king of the arcade and maybe top 5 players from the leader board as a monthly record? That will keep the history, but still give everyone a fresh start each month.

Please post in this thread any more problems with scoring. If the games aren't working properly they're no good to anyone.

Well, I got lucky, but really, it COULD have been a bigger score. I was in really great shape with only the 5s, Chance and 1s remaining. I needed 37 points (after assuming I had the 35 coming up top). I rolled two 5s and almost took that for the 5s score, but that left me needing a rocking Chance (since you don't get much on the 1s). So I took 21 for chance, leaving me needing 16 points from the 5s and 1s.

Next roll, I get one 5 and keep it. Roll again, nothing more. Last role, I got two more 5s, giving me 15 and the tie, needing just 1 on the 1s to top the score. I managed one 1 on the last of three rolls. I was sweating big time.

I don't think we're overly competitive, and it's rude of you to suggest it.

BTW, stay away from Yahtzee or I'll have your head and will send Alice back to TATChat. Got it? ;)

I'm sorry --cj--, that blows. We had some server problems.

Also, make sure when you log in that the "Remember me" box is checked. Otherwise if you're playing a really long game the forum will automatically log you out and when you go to submit your score it won't record it.
