    Hey,

    The arcade will be closing shortly for an update. Hopefully once it's back open there should be new games! :grin:

    I just thought I would mention that when you lose "Soap Bubble" you are sent back to the main forum page and no scores are saved in the arcade.

    Thanks for letting me know. I've now removed it (along with the kill kenny game) and will either look for another version of the game or find a new one to replace it with.

    I've been playing the 10-pin bowling game, and when I finish I keep getting the message "This score was not submitted from the game. Your score will not be saved."

    Edit - Working now.

    Phew, I was adament that had worked when I tested it.

    Anyways, kill kenny and soap bubble should be returning again shortly. There will (hopefully) also be another 8 games to go with it, which will add our total to 40. The new games include things like orca slap, pinball, albatross overload etc. That should give us a pretty good mix, but if peeps think any have been left out then post in here and it can be looked into. :slight_smile:

    Oh, and for those starting tournaments, it would be a good idea to advertise them in Fun and Games (just create a thread) so that people who don't check the tournaments page will still have the chance to join in. :slight_smile:

    Arcade will be closed shortly for another update. It should be open again shortly after once the new games are installed and settings have been tweaked.

    I had that happen to me, and figured out why it was (at least for me)

    If you open a game in a new window (by either opening the game in a new tab, actually pressing [in new window] button, it will go to that page, and not save the score ._.

    *cry*

    The High Score for Bookworm is 24k, but I just got 96k in a tournament game.

    If only tournament games counted towards high scores for that game ._.

    I'll see if those can be added once Paul returns from vacation. It won't be for another week or so yet.

    I should also point out that a few games may have to be removed due to various problems. There's been a reported problem with Bomber Kid which isn't submitting scores above 550 points (iirc), and the Kill Kenny game has apparently been refusing to work for some of you because of an advert that appears on the game. I may also have to remove the Golf game due to the setup that it requires. It currently requires that the lowest score be crowned as the High Score, and that will clash with future updates to the arcade settings.

    Has anybody had any problems with other games?

    Classic Frogger sticks at the end of the third level.
    Kill Kenny has never worked for me.
    Bomber Kid - I got 600 points on and it only awarded 550

    Everything else that I've tried seems good.

    For people that have been having trouble with opening Kill Kenny, I believe that they have to click below the "Click here to join for free" to start the game. If you click just under it, you'll get instructions on how to play, and below that would start the game.
