This weekend I got the YouTube channel spawning into the prototype, along with the ability to spawn all of your Steam Trading Card achievement unlocks. It uses the custom-parsers to put all of them into the 3D world, just like described in recent articles.

After the Kickstarter concludes, there will be 1 more prototype update then I'm going back to working on the Steam version.

Check out twitch.tv/AnarchyArcade tomorrow to see some of the new features in action!

Hey, a question. AA is free right now, the prototype I mean. You keep adding so many things and features in you free time, respect for that! But in time when this is fully released, will it be sold on Steam then, because it's greenlit now? Or will it be free? I really wouldn't mind to throw some little money I have at this and buy it when the full version is released on Steam. But I see that the kickstarter is going slow, wich is a real shame. So if the kickstart fails, what's going to happen? Are you still going to release it on Steam as an Alpha (even tho I'm personally not a real fan of that model, but hey), and use the money you get from this to fund the development of AA? Or is the kickstarter really necessary for the development, and when it would fail will have a detrimental effect on AA? It would be sad to see if this revolutionary project can't be developed to its full potential..
Greetings!

I have been doing lots of updates to the prototype recently to promote the Kickstater campaign and the concept in general.

However, the prototype and the Steam version are two very different versions and actually use different code bases. The prototype is like a canvas where I quickly test out concepts and see how the community enjoys them. Because of this, the prototype is basically a bunch of different ideas patched together with duct-tape. In fact, interactive video screens and multiplayer weren't even features of the original prototype. These types of major features are things that need to be implemented from the very beginning.

That is what the Steam version of Anarchy Arcade is. It is all the features (who's tech is demonstrated in the prototype) built into one tight kick-*** package. Plus it will have all of the new features that aren't even possible in the prototype such as the Steamworks features and multiplayer customization.

The Steam version will not be free, but will be very cheap. I am going for a standard price of $15 USD, but I don't know exactly how much it will cost yet. Remember that stuff on Steam is usually on sale anyways, so people will have lots of opportunities to pick it up for cheaper than that.

There's still a week left in the Kickstater campaign so I am still promoting that for the duration. Now is the time to make a pledge to the Kickstarter and make a memorable impression on the Anarchy Arcade community.

And remember I'll be giving away more free Steam games this Wednesday while playing Anarchy Arcade, 1 every hour for the full 24 hours. I had a great time giving out 28 games last Wednesday and look forward to doing it again this week!

Others have been able to fix this issue by updating their video card drivers and DirectX versions.

I just downloaded this, installed it and derped around a little on it, tho seems no servers for other people show up sadly, would be cool to visit people unless do I need to unlock it?

This idea is quite interesting tho only issues I have sofar is when launching another game or so it will not launch within the arcade, it will open a new window, I know that it might not be able to launch inside the arcade but it sucks when it slightly freezes your screen and or shrinks your window.

I still like this tho, going to be interesting to see what comes of this, would be nice if this was stand alone or so so people without HL2 and etc could enjoy this and invite friends over, show off games and movies, music and so much more, I think what would be neat is if your friends could play your pc games inside of your arcade and all that jazz.

Also how do you import models from the .GCF files from valve (from games like tf2, l4d2, hl2, hl2:ep1 and 2).
(P.S. When I imported 17 maps of rp_ from Garrysmod.org they slowed down the game... Is there a specific type of map suggested?)
Thank you for taking your time to help me.

You can mount content from many Source engine games by clicking Mount Content on the main menu. The maps from games you have mounted will show up in the Start Arcades screen, just be sure you have Show Addons checked in the Filter box.

Personally I suggest smaller maps instead of massive city-sized RP maps. It's easy to change to a different map, and when the maps are small it doesn't take for ever to find what you're looking for. :)

Let me know if you have any troubles.

Btw, taking a screenshot with F5 will update a map's thumbnail on the Start Arcades screen.
