Arcade Builder Features
Add/Edit/Delete Games & Categories
Using a simple administration area you can add games and place them in
categories. ArcadeBuilder fully supports both external HTML pages, SWF
files, DCR files, and custom game code. Using the custom HTML game code
option, you can add every possible online game type to your arcade, as
well as other content such as movies or music. Additionally, the order
of the categories can be easily changed.
FTP, Browser-Based Uploads, or Direct Server File Transfers
You can upload game files via FTP or your web browser. Additionally,
you can transfer files from other web servers to your website. For big
game files, this will save you a large amount of time that would
otherwise be spent downloading and uploading.
Automatic SWF Dimension Reading
ArcadeBuilder will automatically determine the dimensions of all added
SWF files to save you the time of entering these yourself.
Automatic Thumbnail Resizing
ArcadeBuilder automatically resizes the thumbnail image to the default
thumbnail size, which can be configured in the administration area.
Never again will you need to open your graphics package and do it
yourself. You are also given an option to clip the border off of images
you uploaded. These features will save you an immense amount of time.
Maximum/Minimum Game Size
ArcadeBuilder can automatically resize SWF games so they are not
smaller or larger than a specified width. You can also set up a minimum
width a game has, so games that are usually very small are scaled up.
Additionally, you can control whether games are displayed directly in
the theme, or as a new popup window.
