New Submission Form for TDC Arcade games!
News posted 13th January, 2011 by Jon Lambert  
Hi everyone. How are you? How was your day? What did you have for dinner?

Oh, that's not relevant...

Ahem. Looking to submit something to the TDC Arcade, are you? We'll if so, you've come to the right place, and if not, then just keep on walking. Since some people have been asking about the arcade and whether 'tis done, I've gone ahead and prepared a submission form for arcade games! It's hosted on my own domain, so don't be afraid when it appears that you've left It'll only appear that way because that's exactly what you've done (gotta preserve that bandwidth, folks.)

To submit an arcade game, fill out the form with your user name (the one you use to log in, not the one that displays in the forum, if they are two different things) and information about the game. Then it is simply a matter of finding the .mfa source to your game and pressing the submit button. Once you receive your confirmation, you can know that your arcade submission has been received. Since the page is not on the domain, it can't access the site's cookies, hence why you have to enter your user name manually.

Click here to submit a game!

Update: The form has been updated to allow larger uploads. I didn't realize that these flash files were going to be so large!

Fair warning--Club is still the only one that can actually put the games up.

Nice to see the submission becoming a bit more systematic process. Now if you could get it to work without the developer needing to submit the mfa - like the V-Cade used to work - then I'll submit a dozen of games immediately.

Also what would be interesting is to do "TDC Arcade" branded versions (ads, links) of some games and distribute them as widely as possible to drive traffic to the site and gain more players outside TDC.

Good idea!

Wouldn't be hard at all to make a frame with a logo that takes you to the arcade.

Right now we have to have the mfa to make sure everything checks out and to put in the SECRET DOOMSDAY CODES that will make it work.

Sweetness!! Thanks, Jon! I'll submit the updated Overkill.

Once again, huge thanks.

You're welcome guys.

MJK, even if we let you enter the codes and insert the frames yourself, this is a regulated, unified interface, so we would need the source to look for cheat codes or other unfair inclusions.

I'll add my text adventure game!

Woot woot! \o/ I can just imagine putting Super Ecksdee Panic up here.

Definitely going to add my 20 event entry once the competition ends.

This process is changing as we speak; soon ALL admins should be able to accept arcade games

There's an upload limit capacity. Can't aid you with my game.
Posted by Jon Lambert 16th January, 2011

A) I upped it so your game fits, and B) you already sent it to OMC.

My file size is only 3.7mb, but I still can't upload, I would appreciate it if the size limit was increased again...
