Hi folks. It's been a little while and I'd finally like to announce another new feature of CG - The Arcade. It took awhile to develope the system so that it tracks users' games and scores along with high scores. I think it is at the point where it is ready to release. I'll continue to add more functionality over time and add new games from time to time. But there is enough there to keep you distracted for a little while. Let me know if you come across any issues.

Cheers!
-Paul

The FDA will find that providing games on a cigar site is direct marketing to children.

You know, sadly, I actually considered that. But then if we plan our lives around what these nuts might do, we'd never enjoy ourselves.

Plus, the registration on the site makes you confirm you are at least 18 years old. So hopefully that will keep people happy.

FYI...the Moon Lander game does not seem to be saving the score correctly. Not sure what the issue is. I'll have to dig into it a bit.

Ok. I found the bug. The sessions on the server were timing out too quickly. So if you played a game for more than roughly 8 minutes your session would be gone. This has been pushed to 8 hours. I doubt anyone will play a game for that long.

The good news is that I was able to enter the game scores that were lost, so there were a couple of high scores included in those:

nukbucko
Space Invaders
Score 77020 (Sorry Jackal, I saw your 32220, but nuck had you beat)

nukbucko
Hexxagon
Score 36

The other scores were entered in the player's record. At some point soon you'll have access to view your playing records.

Thanks for the feedback and let me know if you find any other bugs!

Hey Paul, you're killing me with the games. I have a hard enough time getting my ass is gear without an arcade at my fingers. By the way, I scored over 10,000 in Tetrus today bu there is no record of it neither in my play history or in the high scores.

1229 is the score of one of many games of tetris that I have played thus far...In the highest score category I have three entries I think. I just don't know what happened to the game that I got over 10,000 on It does not matter to me much, I was just wondering if it was working properly.

Yes Bookworm was added per Larry's suggestion. Moon Lnader just appears to be buggy. It is what it is and I can't alter it. I'm looking for another one that might work better.

Are you guys getting any error messages at all? Or does it just appear to go through with no issues? Also, if you can write down the exact score and date/time and send me in a PM that will help me go through the logs and see if I can trace the problem.

I found that if for some reason you have CG open on more than one "Tab" - then the Arcade will not save your score.

Close the other tabs and just have CG on one, problem fixed.

It looks like the scoring for Lunar Lander is incorrect. It always says 10000 points scored for me. I've gotten to different places so I don't see that being right. Anyone else have this issue?

Yeah. Lunar Lander scoring is screwed up. I'll probably just replace it with something else. I left it there for now just because I always have the high score since no one else can beat 10,000. But i'll get rid of it.

I hadn't heard of this one. I'll take a look. There's a ton of Majongg hames out there I can't put up instead.

Speaking of issues with the 3 Card Poker. In only the ten mintues or so that I spent playing this morning, on a couple of hands I was only dealt two cards. Forunately I didn't experience any problems with the betting area, though. But a couple of the hands I was dealt, I only got two cards.

Oh yeah, that too. The two caed thing has happened a few times to mee as well. Just wait until you have 4000 in the bank and you want to bet 2000...its tough to find the space.

Figured it out: it's not random. It ends when there are no combinations left to choose. It would still be nice to start a new game without going back to the arcade though.

Paul, I cleared all 3 boards on Mahjongg and the game just sat there. It did not record my score or give an option to do so. Just get some more Mahjongg game options for me to test.

Paul, I didn't have any trouble w/ house of cards. it has 2 options to play --reg play and practice, you must have hit practice---it will not save a score (even though it tells you a score) in this mode.

Yeah. My wife has complained about the same thing. Apparently with these games, you get what you pay for.
