The arcade provides entertainment for the users with a multitude of games. Permission to use the arcade is defined by the administrator, but certain services can also be enabled/disabled in your User Control Panel. Even with this you may find the following guide useful.
Depending on the settings of the administrator of the arcade, it may be possible that registration is not necessary to use the games. Please note that if you register and enter the arcade, then many additional useful functions can be accessed within. (For example, you can save your score and progress, comment games, save your games as favorites, rate the games, send a challenge to other users for a duel, participate in a started tournament, and other useful things.) Of course, use of these features depends on the settings of the administrator. Because of your permissions or membergroup, some of them may or may not not be available for you.
The game rating is a useful feature. It makes it easy for users to search according to how users have rated it and if a game is rated good then it will be more popular. The statistics of the game is always at the top of the screen so users can find easily the best rated games.
A random game, chosen by the system, is a beautiful thing because it is not chosen from a specific category. So, it will not be boring in the long run, because you do not always play in the same category, for example.
At first wait a moment, please. Some games load a little bit longer, because of their size. A broken game should be reported to the administrator, so that he/she can solve the problem as quickly as possible. Each game contains a link for an error message to be used for this. Please use this link, because it contains all specific information about the game, that is important for us, and you can choose what type of problem has occurred. A more extensive error description is desirable. Please also let us know which browser and which version was used, because it is not certain that this error also occurs in other browsers. Also, you might want to describe the device that made the error (e.g. Pc, tablet or mobile). Also, specify the resolution of your screen on which you play the game, because the error may not occur at another resolution.
The super champion is the top champion of all users, who holds the highest-ever achieved record of games. The super champion has no regular trophy, unless he holds a record at the first place in the current period, too. If the administrator resets the arcade it is possible to retain the super champions highscores, so you can always view the highest result ever achieved for the game.
The ranking takes into account the amount of trophies earned, the more trophy has a user is better rank. The rank image determination administrator, add the picture, in a way that connects the trophy given quantity of some rank images.
If you don’t want to be challenged by other users to a duel, you can choose to disable this function. If you turn it off you will not be able to challenge another user, too. Please note, challenge can also be disabled for all users by the administrator.
Yes, you have the option to turn the display on / off in the game room settings. This way, you can see how much time is left on the game page before your session expires. If you have little time left, you may want to log out and log back in to the website before playing.
The game always starts in its own display size set by the administrator. However, the software always checks whether the set size fits into the space provided for the game. If the room is smaller, the software will automatically detect the size of the visible room and adjust the game size accordingly. If you activate “Automatically change game size” in your own settings, the software also takes into account that the game will automatically be adjusted to this largest size if the field of view is larger than the set size of the game. Under no circumstances will the software allow any part of the game to go out of sight. If this is detected, the software will intervene and change the games display size.
Yes, all games can be started on a mobile phone. However, if you want to play only on a mobile phone, you may want to turn on filter out keyboard games in your game settings, because you won’t be able to play these games without a keyboard anyway.
Some categories are protected by an age limit, why?
It is possible for administrators to collect easy games for children in a category, and minors only can play in it. It is also possible that games are in a category that are not suitable for minors, and these should only be played by adults.
If the search function is active, you will find a search box around the middle of the page, where you can enter the name of the game. In addition you have the option to search for the initials of the game, just click on the action letter. You can also narrow your search to a specific category by selecting a category. If you open a category and the search engine is active there, the search engine will automatically select that category. Of course you can change that, for example, to “all categories”.
How can I search a game, if I do not know the name exactly?
The search engine automatically takes the word endings into account. For example, if you type in the search box pac you will get the Pacman game. However, if you want the word pac to have the name Big Pacman put a * in front of the name you are looking for.
I see “Limit error” when adding a favorite game, what does that mean?
You have saved the maximum number of game favorites that the administrator has preset. Therefore you cannot add any more game favorites unless you delete older game favorites. Or, if you think the limit is too small, you can ask an administrator to increase the limit if possible.
On the challenge page you click on the button "challenge", and then choose the required settings from the form. Here you have the following options:
Select a game from the list.
Select a favorite game. Possible only if you have marked some favorite games.
Select the opponent from user list.
Select a friend. Possible only if you have marked users as friends.
After you have chosen a game and opponent, you can send this request by clicking the “Challenge”. To start the challenge the opponent has to respond to the request.
Note: If a points system is installed and active, you can also specify a bet. The bet can be freely selectable, or it can be predefined by administrator.
If you play in normal window, you can find boxes at the side including the box “Game options”. In this box you will find the link “Challenge champion”. You can simply challenge the record holder by clicking on this link. He/she has to accept the challenge before the duel can start.
I was challenged and lost a lot of my balance, why?
If a user challenged you and has set a bet, for example, 100 points, then this will be deducted from your balance at the same time challenge is incoming. If the game costs 5 points, for example, this is deducted, too. So the system will deduct a total of 105 points from your balance to cover the full cost of the challenge. In case you decline this challenge you will be immediately refunded this amount. Even if the challenge is accepted, but the game is not played, or the challenge time runs out before you start, your bet and game cost will also be refunded.
Yes, before the tournament starts you can play the games without evaluation. But if it has already started, all the games contained therein will be evaluated for tournament, regardless of which place they are started, and there is no way for further practice.
The jackpot is formed from the cost of the game. At the start of each game, the game costs are collected in a pot. It grows, until someone has won this jackpot, or until the limit is reached. The minimum/maximum amount of this jackpot is defined by the administrator.
The game cost is the sum, which will be deducted from your balance for each game start. Please note, that the cost of individual games or categories may be different. The amount of the cost is defined by the administrator.
The download cost is the sum, which will be deducted from your balance for each game you download. Please note, that the cost of individual games or categories may be different. The amount of the cost is defined by the administrator.
