http://www.docskillz.com/docs/index.php?board=32.0

This seems to be an active and updated website with arcade info

current version: http://www.docskillz.com/docs/index.php?topic=667.0

Got the file for SMF 2.0.9 but didn't see any description/screenshots of this thing? Can you link that if you have it handy?

Also, looks like there are "GamePacks" that come separately that have the actual games. You guys talk amongst yourselves and figure out which you want and we can test it out.

If you offer to add games as a separate blocks with swf content embedded to site or forum, that can be gone easily.
The main question is design. Where do you plan to put that block?
Mousey, that's a question to you i think.

I also can unpack it here for example: http://forum.war2.ru/games/
You can click to any swf file you want to play, but i think we should do that more beautiful.

Is that what the SMF Arcade mod does, creates a skin for integrating the games into the forum?

not sure how it works with SMF Arcade mod, i think our custom implementation could be better as applied to our invididual design.
What we need to embed swf is several lines of simple html code. Question is where we should embed it.

I think the way it works is it adds a "Games" link at the top of the forum, and then you click that link and it takes you to a menu of available Flash games (what's available is probably based on what game packs you install).  The fun part of these in theory is that it will save and display the top ten scores or whatever for each game so members of the forum can compete against each other's scores.

This mod is really well put together, much better and simpler than a custom implementation. Installed w/ games packs 1 & 2, enjoy!

Awesome.  Wonder if we can find some better game packs, I don't see many classics in here.

They're here: http://www.docskillz.com/docs/index.php?action=downloads;cat=2 Go ahead and pick any out you want. (You can pick individual games from packs.) I also read somewhere on that forum that a bunch of other game formats are compatible, like phpbb etc.

I like the idea of having mostly worthwhile games and not having a bunch of shitty garbage games distracting people and hiding the good ones!

Gamepack 12: Donkey Kong
Gamepack 14: Frogger
Gamepack 15: Pacman
Gamepack 16: Snake, Tetris
Gamepack 13: Asteroids, Breakout

Of the games we have I only tried Avoider and it was really basic but okay, Duck Hunt might be okay, all the rest look like hot garbage.
