    Breakout,

    Although the orginal (akanoid) was fun as hel.. this version tries ones time more then skill or chance, i mean you can play for hours on end and never lose...

    IMO, it's way to borring, ad i think everyone agrees, imo, remove it ;)

    jesus guys, its meant to be an addition and a bit of fun, not freaking Far cry or Half Life 2 in a forum thread. I went into the games to see the comments and all you guys are doing is bitching.

    ever hear of NOT clicking on the link if it sucks so much ? I mean its only a rare collectable bag you could win, one of 30 we got made.... whats the big deal ? :x

    Just a quick note guys.

    If any of you have vista and you launch the screen for the game in its own IE window you can decide to manually control the volume that way from the sound mixer.

    Each app has it's own identity in there for sound control :)

    I for one like the DH Arcade. :) Not that I expect to win anything or intend to spend too much time here, but it's nice for killing a bit of time and satisfying nostalgia (speaking of which, where's PacMan?! :D).

    I love the inclusion of these games. Just great idea.
    The only thing that I don't like is how for some reason when I play the breakout clone, it stops moving for like a sec, but enough to lose a ball, or 3.
    Don't know what is causing it.

    I think it happens when you move the mouse cursor out of the game window.

    I thought about this, but it isn't the point, during one game for some reason I could also see the arrow while playing and while playing it didn't leave the window and still had the "pause".

    I had that too (cursor appearing from time to time), so it's not an Opera issue (I'm using FF), although I mostly had the pauses when I'd leave the game window. Unfortunately, since it's not a DH created game, I'm not sure when (if) we should expect a fix.

    I don't mind about the arrow, only about the pauses in breakout.
    But since it is hardly the best clone ever....

    neezee, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
    1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
    ^any1 else get that msg. randomly?

    randomly no, on certain pages, sure, IIRC, but the last time was at least months ago.


    Anyway, these games are a fine addition to the site. Zardon and Co. great move guys.

    Now, I think I will change the title under Status <---- to Asteroids Champion! :p
