    This is the latest version of the Arcade add-on currently under development. Most bugs from previous version have been fixed. It's worth noting that Mochi has been completely removed.

    24-05-2014: v0.2.1
    28-05-2014: v0.2.1b

    A few requests.

    • Maybe a high score champion block up above the games showing the top 3 members with the most high scores.
    • An online box below the list of games showing whose using the arcade.
    • Also, a way to see all high scores for a particular game (right now I only see the top 6, I apologize if I'm missing something).

    I guess those blocks could be put on the side below the category block instead since I see alot of white space when having a full page of games.

    You are definitely thinking along the right lines. The sidebar currently only has the category block but indeed the thought process was to have additional blocks there as time went on.

    With XFA and Widget Framework now under one roof with one developer, I can't wait to see what creative ideas come out of it.

    An idea I was toying with but never got off the ground was to make the game page tabbed (like the category index pages are now) with one tab for playing the game, one tab for a leaderboard within that game, and one tab for discussion of the game (like how XF resources are displayed) in a thread.
    Fleshing out the idea for the discussion tab that was in my head... it was going to be similar to the last version of v3Arcade that I was working where adding a game would automatically create a new thread in a specified forum announcing the new game (the game title, description, etc. would be in the thread). As a way of encouraging people to spend more time in the games a new post would then be added to the thread when somebody became the new game champion and an alert sent to the old champion (aka: "Hey, Kevin just beat your score in Asteroids!"). Users could then talk about the game, or trash talk other players, in the same thread.

    So many ideas, so little time. :(

    That's a great idea @Kevin. I think I will implement it in next version.
    And the current version has the "I beat you" conversation working FYI.

    I think, I have a great suggestion to post :)
    Please integrate this mod to BD Social Share.
    When a user gets score, high score, champion will post on his/her Facebook Wall :)

    I like the idea of an alert because those are easier to clear out than the conversations if possible?

    That's a great idea for the leaderboard and comments page. I thought I saw a permission for comments but haven't ran across where they're located.

    There are/were some options in the ACP that were started but never completed and Comments may have been one of them.

    Oh another block could be the latest scores/games played.

    Thanks for the update, decimal scores are now working.

    Still seeing errors in the highscore column for low scoring games - the champion displays correctly and the player's rank is correct but the sorting of the scores between 2 and 6 is wrong (see attached)

    I know from my time working with v3 Arcade that some of the most popular requests for blocks were - recent added games, latest scores, latest champions, top X champions, most played games, most time (hours etc) spent in the arcade.

    A lot of people also requested a "Featured Game" function where the admin could set a game as the featured game or set it to be the last installed game or a random game - this could also be a block/widget.

    The 1v1 challenge system was also popular - probably more so than the tournament system.

    Personally I'd like to see some sort of integration with credits/points systems and social media.

    I have XF Arcade 0.0.9 installed, can I upgrade it directly to 0.2.1?
     
  18. Kevin

    Kevin New Member

    Yes, but you'll likely want to test 0.2.1 on a test install first. There are GUI changes and Mochi games support has been removed.

    With Mochi support removed, the crossdomain.xml file can be removed from the zip file.

    The update went fine, but I'm unable to delete games. It just gives a blank page when trying.
