Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Workshop Sharing is Back + Walls Are Awesome!

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 Twitch.tv stream (Iggmarathon.com). 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.

Use the ModDb download. Desura takes months to approve updates, and it has an obsolete version still.

Unfortunately the Desura version might not be able to update correctly. You should use the Full Install: Moddb.com

What sources can you watch video from?
Things like Hulu don't work in Europe. At least they don't work in the Netherlands.

Also every time I see a popular show on CC or MTV share a link to a video/episode on facebook it tells me it's unavailable in my country when I try to watch it.

Will I have the same problem in this 'game'? And what sources can you watch video from? And are the games actually playable in this mod?

(Same problem with Pandora and other American audio streamers by the way and also the same question about what Audio sources there are...)

It's actually compatible with most web-based streaming services by default; many more than the ones I've listed.

If you tell me some of the streaming services that DO work in your country, I can test them out in the prototype to confirm that they are compatible.

In addition to streaming services, you can spawn local movies and music right from your hard drive. As far as games, it is compatible with all non-Source engine games.

Anarchy Arcade is designed to access YOUR favorite media, whether on your local hard drive or on the internet. Because of this it is extremely adaptable and prepared to handle types of shortcuts that it has never even seen before.

Desura takes a couple weeks to approve updates, so you have to use the ModDb download link to get the newest version.

You need to have a public Steam profile for it to detect which Steam games you own. Just set your Steam profile to public, then use this command in SMARCADE to make it detect your games:
getmysteamgames 1
