Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Anarchy Weeky First Issue! Featuring 360 YouTube Video Spheres

0 comments by SM_Sith_Lord on Jul 26th, 2015

Welcome to the first issue of Anarchy Weekly! Its mission: to bring you the latest & greatest news, addons, and highlights coming from the Anarchy Arcade community and from all corners of the world!

I'm SM Sith Lord and I'll be your host & curator for this wild ride through the metaverse of all human knowledge, history, fiction, and future.

Our first issue focuses on an awesome submission by an AArcade community member, so without further adieu, lets get started!

YouTube 360° Video Spheres

Recently YouTube added 360-degree streaming videos to their service. These videos allow you to look around in any direction as if you were actually there in real life!

Fortunately for us, AArcade community member Oke Doke was able to make a 360° video sphere cabinet for us to spawn these new videos in! Fry has a bunch of them spawned in this parking lot here (above). You just stand in the middle of the spheres and enjoy the show with a fully interactive 360° viewing experience.

Oh, and did I mention that last week Valve fixed Steam's VR mode so you can now experience the 360° videos inside of your arcades with Facebook's Oculus Rift or HTC's Vive virtual reality devkits!

AnarchyTV Live Twitch Demonstrations

The all-new AnarchyTV interactive Twitch.tv video stream will be LIVE all-day this Wednesday, July 29th between 6am - 10pm PDT! Come see what it's like for somebody to launch games from Anarchy Arcade as I try to make progress in beating various games from my library.

You can interact with the AnarchyTV live video stream through chat commands, and you even earn AnarchyTV points for doing so! The top 3 viewers with the most points at the end of the day get entered into a drawing to win a prize!

AnarchyTV Game Giveaway

If Twitch.tv is good for anything, its for giving away free stuff. This Wednesday I will be gifting my extra copy of WWE 2K15 on Steam to the winner of the AnarchyTV raffle!

All you have to do is join the Twitch stream some time during Wednesday and interact with the chat bot for a chance to win your spot on the prize wheel. (You don't even need to have Anarchy Arcade!)

The wheel will spin at 4pm PDT with the top 3 names on it. The winner gets WWE 2K15 and is invited to be my tag-team partner in multiplayer mode! :D

I'm Confused. Why would we want to launch games/Pictures from a Mod? I mean, It's easy enough to Pop in the disk, and easier to launch from steam, Or go to a Games Site. And Secondly It really only takes up RAM space when it's running.

If your friends launched a different game, you will see them standing in front of the arcade cabinet they launched it from. You can launch that same game at any time by USE-ing the same cabinet they are standing in front of.

SniperComHerp, it's just a lot more fun launching your games and movies from a virtual arcade. Check this out:
Steamcommunity.com

That is where I launch Jedi Knight from. Before I launch JK, I like to start a Star Wars movie. There are many Star Wars movies to choose from located right next to JK. After I'm done playing JK, I can take a couple steps to the right and play the original Dark Forces. NO MENU'S REQUIRED! I just walk over to it and hit USE. :D

With each map able to house hundreds of shortcuts, my "wallpaper" never gets old. On top of that, I can join a friend's arcade to watch/play his favorite games and movies.

Shortcuts are not limited to games or movies either. I have many Walkthroughs and Player's Guides placed near their associated games as well. Bottom line is you start using this mod for fun, but after you get good at it, it actually can become convenient for you.

It's a Source lobby with more than just Steam games in it. Like an arcade to launch your games. It could also be used like a desktop inside the game if you like.

Have you ever been able to load a map in the mod? Try to load one that you've never tried before just to see if it works. If you start a thread in this mod's forums page, I will be happy to walk you through the trouble shooting process.
