    There seems to a permissions problem on games in the arcade as members can get into the Arcade and see the games but when you try toplay one you get the following error message:-

    The administrator has disabled playing games for your usergroup.

    Mind you it's not a real problem for me as I am crap at them anyway:lol2 :lol2

    Apparently the problem is limited to the VIP user group because I can get in just fine on here and on my Moderator account.

    I was the one who noticed the problem, so I'll just go ahead and note that I have the same problem as Maurice. :)

    Ian, can you install a mod that makes me better at the arcade games? I can't beat Zeus at Seal Bounce.

    I may not beat your score but I think I can do better than the third rank.

    Core how did you get that high score with so little control?

    I'm definitely not gonna be able to beat your score. I am so used to dropping the pieces with the spacebar and rotating the pieces with the key(5) between the directional keys(4&6).

    Sure, I'll try ;)

    Code:
    if $vbulletinusername = "danperteet" {
               $sealbouncescore = "1 MILLION BILLION GAJILLION";
    }
    
    :lol2

    I think this might be the birth of the THQ Arcade Tournament

    But he did install it. And then when the forum realized what an epic score that is, it decided to not show it to give the rest of us hope.

    And as for whipping Core's arse in Tetris, I would but I'm afraid your wife will come behind me and whip mine. She seems to be the one to decide who can keep their high scores or not. Ian is just the admin.
