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.

Hey Pete. I checked the logs and the best i could find was an entry for 1229. Is that in your history?

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.

Is there a trick to getting your high score added? I tied on SIMON and registered a 5th or 6th place in SPACE INVADERS but neither one is showing up on the list.


Its just me isnt it?
