AArcade's niche is to provide uninhibited Windows functionality, but with a 3D world of shortcuts instead of a 2D wallpaper. This includes performance & compatibility equal to what users experience natively on Windows. Have you ever spent long hours in a video game, and didn't want to quit when it came time to do homework? AArcade turns your useless desktop wallpaper into a game world. You use your PC like normal, but AArcade is now your wallpaper. Launch your shortcuts from AArcade, or just launch them from Windows like normal. AArcade does not get in the way. There is a hidden world between worlds. A world that is normally only seen through lists, links, and menus. A world that we've known as other worlds have come and gone. A world that exists between everything we do on our computers. THAT is the world of Anarchy Arcade.

Source Media Arcade Updated

If you haven't played Source Media Arcade lately, it's time to set some New Year's resolutions. I spent my entire Christmas Week coding in some very useful and exciting features for the mod.

The most important of these features is the all-new DLC system, which allows me to get the latest add-on content to you with a single click. Source Media Arcade supports a wide range of add-on content including: new cabinet models, new apps, new search providers, new library items, and more! Now you can browse these add-ons in the integrated, completely free DLC "store". Here is a video demonstrating how to use the DLC store:

Another great new feature is the ability to randomize which items get spawned. Tired of seeing the same Star Trek episode placed next to your Star Wars: The Old Republic cabinet? Well, now you can make a RANDOM Star Trek episode spawn there instead! Or maybe instead, you'd just want a random TV show spawned there. That is possible now too! Check out this video demonstrating how to use item randomization:

What's New?

Downloadable Content System
