As many of you know, at least those of you who use the arcade here, there has been a major upgrade of the system and its layour. In this post I will go over in detail some of the great new features we have and how to use them.

At the top of the page you will see a menu section showing links to the various items which I will describe below:
  • Arcade - This link brings you back to the main page of the arcade.

  • Your Settings - This section allows you to change various settings such as the sort method for the games, the default category you start in, how many games to show per page, and the amount of scores to show per page.

  • Your Favorites - This contains any games that you have added to your favorites. This allows you a quick view to the games you play the most.

  • Your Rankings - This shows your ranking in all the games in the arcade as well as other various statistics.

  • Leaderboard - This shows all the ranks of everyone for the board. There can be only one!

  • Arcade User List - This is the ranking for the people who have spent the most time playing the arcade games. This can be scary to see.
Under that menu you will see any Arcade announcements that I may send to the arcade. You probably saw a link to this post in there.

Under that we have the 7 latest games added to the arcade and the latest game champions.

The next major addition is the Tournament System. This allows you to create a tournament that other people can join. There are a few links in here that will be discussed below:
  • Tournaments waiting for players - This lists all tournaments that have been created and that are still awaiting players to join up. Click here to see a list of the current tournaments and to register for one. You can also see who is signed up for the tournament.

  • Running tournaments - See the current running tournament and the scores.

  • Finished tournaments - See the results of past tournaments.

  • Create a new Tournaments - Here you can create a new tournament. You would pick your game, choose the amount of players, and the amount of tries people have in each round in which the high score from those tries will be taken.
Under that you may notice that all the games are now categorized by the type of the game it is. If there are more than 20 games in the category, then it will give you a link to the next page.

Above each game are two links. The first is a link to play the game and the second is a link to add it your favorites. If you add a game to your favorites, you can click on the Your favorites link at the top of page to see the games you have added here. This should make it easier for you to navigate to the games you want to play.

I hope this explains the new features of the Arcade and if you have any questions just let us know.
