Player Hubs - New Feature Coming in January

Recently I explained how to create massive virtual worlds that are functional representations of your PC & the internet: Imgur.com

The new feature I am announcing today takes it a step further by bringing together the virtual worlds that you have created with those that your friends have created.

There's an awesome new feature on the horizon that will bring together the AArcade community like never before and link us all together in one huge woven VR web. It's called Player Hubs, and thanks to the successful Kickstarter, it is one of the new features that will be working its way into the end of January release.

Player Hubs are simple, small, themed spaces that you fully customize to represent yourself and your favorite stuff. You can create how ever many hubs you want.After you have created a Player Hub, you share it to the Steam workshop so your friends can spawn your hub as part of their own, larger, virtual world!

If you ever update your player hub, your friends will automatically see your changes everywhere that they have your player hub spawned at. This means that the content in your and your friends' arcades will always be fresh and have your favorite stuff!

There are only 2 days left to pledge to the Kickstarter and reach the 1st stretch goal. If this goal is met, 3D artist Black_Stormy will join the development team and make us some great props to use in our arcades.


Don't miss out on the metaverse! AArcade is a fully functional Windows Desktop wallpaper image replacement! Browse YOUR files and launch YOUR favorite stuff from a 3D multiplayer environment instead of looking at Windows's boring old desktop & file explorer! The future is now!

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.

There's one bug I encountered: Whenever I try to load a TF2 map, it crashes without any error message. I'm pretty sure the mod is the latest version and I have sdk base 2013 installed.

This usually happens because of the TF2 game cache is out of date. Try to verify TF2's local file cache.

a few more arcade cabinets I'd like to see are a ddr cabinets (for those rhythm games like sequence) , guitar hero style cabinets (for rocksmith and guitar hero 3), and table top cabinets (for that retro pacman look) these and more props would make this game that much cooler and fill up my arcades in cooler ways

thanks to community props i now have a bunch of cool props like character standees, guitars, game console props (Wii, 3ds, nes, snes, GameCube, psp, ps3, ps4, ps2, Xbox 360, Xbox 1, and more), legend of Zelda props, black mesa props (from the the black mesa source game), kingdom hearts props, and a line of wreck it Ralph arcade cabinets based on the three different arcade games involved in the movie. my only problems that have arisen are some of the props don't have collision mechanics so they are hard to place (some end up in the floor, some in the wall, etc.). another problem is i can't seem to get a cabinets score higher than about 240 and i really want that time crisis arcade machine model.
