0 comments by SM_Sith_Lord on Feb 27th, 2015

AArcade's all-new and improved workshop update is now live! Many Early Access users have already shared some amazing creations onto the workshop.
If you're new to using the Steam Workshop, AArcade makes it easy with a built-in packing & publishing tool! You can share individual items, or entire arcades.

To share an arcade, just load up your arcade and press the P button to open the Packing Manager. Click Pack Arcade Save and then fill out the rest of the details on the form. After that, click Publish and be patient as your workshop item uploads. As soon as it's finished, AArcade will open the workshop profile of your newly shared item in the Steam overlay.
Also new in this update is the ability to share & subscribe to nodes! Just pull the lever next to a customized wall in the map named hub_walls to save your node and share it to the workshop!

Technical Improvements

  • Uses the newest version of the Steamworks API.
  • UNLIMITED workshop file size.
  • UNLIMITED workshop shares.
  • You don't need to subscribe to your own shares anymore.
  • You don't need to store an extra copy of workshop items anymore.
  • Backwards compatible with existing "legacy" workshop content.
  • As always, shortcuts to local files have their folder paths hidden.

Remember that Anarchy Arcade shares media items themselves, not your copy of them. That means that it's perfectly fine to share arcades that have shortcuts to games or movies on your PC. Other people using your arcade would need access to their own copies of the games or movies to launch the shortcuts, and everybody can watch the preview videos regardless.

Last year Anarchy Arcade participated in the Indie Games For Good charity pledge drive & marathon stream ( Hundreds of indie games participated, and in total the event raised over $19,000.00 US for the Child’s Play charity. Pledgers were allowed to choose a game that they were most interseted in seeing played during the stream, and in the end AArcade was the 6th most requested game!

Earlier this week Valve announced that they will be introducing SteamVR hardware and a refined Steam controller at the Game Developer's Conference in San Fransisco (March 4th - 6th, 2015). This is exciting news for Anarchy Arcade users because AArcade uses the same VR integration as Team Fortress 2 itself which is devloped in-house at Valve.

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.
