We are in alpha testing now and getting closer to our first Beta release :smile:

This is a great idea and I'm interested, but since my site is academic/educational I'm wondering if there is a choice as to what games are on the platform?  I mean I'm sure there's choice, but I'm more inclined to have word and brain games on my site instead of arcade games.

@OliverKapunkt and anyone else:

Correct me if I'm wrong but all these oldschool flash games will not work with this plugin or be useless in today's abandonment of flash technology.

Only HTML 5 games are the way to go right? meaning the big collections we have from old days are pretty much worthless.

Look at the screenshot, there is an extra category for html5 games and even the old Asteroids is installed.

Or check out the Next Level Addon for the vBulletin-Version of IBPro. It's brilliant and can handle html5 and flash games.

I only don't use it anymore because it's a pain ... to run vB4 on modern servers.

The arcade is built to support both flash and html5

There are literally thousands of games that will work on this version of the arcade, I am sure you can find plenty of games to suit your site

Not to be a broken record in arcade topics, but I want Casino made for 4.x. lol. I remember it had keno, a slot similar to wheel of fortune, I think black jack, and I forget what else. I know lucky makes an app with card games, at least, so that one could be good, as well.

Thanks everyone who has shown an interest and signed up to help test.  Apparently for some the validation email is not being sent, if you run into this issue when signing up, please send me a PM or post here and I will get you approved as soon as I get the notice

Got the validation in email, but it dropped into my spam folder so worth checking there.

I know there have been questions about whether or not this APP will be available in the Market place here, and because it is encoded with ioncube I do not think it is something that IPS will allow here.  I would like to at least post the capabilities of the arcade here but not sure that is something I can do either.  So if you have questions about the arcade, want to know the capabilities of it, or just want to see it in a live environment, please let me know and I will send you a link in PM to the site

That's correct, we're not allowing encrypted code in the marketplace. Please keep also in mind that our cloud clients also won't be able to use it because of the missing ioncube extension.

thanks Daniel, I was pretty sure that was right, we are looking at a very scaled down version of the arcade that would not be encoded because it would not have all of the capabilities, and that would be for those that are cloud clients

Maybe this is dumb, but why is it encrypted?
