I downloaded this mod for my forum, and it successfully downloaded. It is just after installation you have to then find games to install to the mod, and i couldn't find the right type of games nowhere. So i don't prephere this mod.

Yeah, I did this for one of my forums not hosted by smfnew. However I would much rather use smfnew, but I would like to be able to have this arcade. It is really easy to use and download games.

Yes it is.

It is "compatible". It is just after a successful download i then went hunting for games, and then seen that the download site was down dew to "to much activity".
I then went back day after day to that site for a week and the same error poped up over and over. That is why i don't like that mod. What is the point in downloading it if its main purpose can't be done. "Can't get games".

Its not compatible with 2.0.1 or 2.0.2

It appears to be compatible with both of those when you choose to parse. It wasn't when I decided to pull the plug on my paid-host SMF board, which was 2RC2. And one of the reasons I decided to do that was that I needed to upgrade to SMF 2 but there was no arcade for it.  If I can't have an arcade, then SMFNew free hosted board was a better option than paying to host a no-arcade board.

So...the plug has been pulled and NOW niko has an updated arcade. Foo.

People looking for games can find them at Wolfpack Arcade, and unless niko's updated arcade can handle something other than zip files, you'll need a converter for converting tar to zip. From my old board I've got over 500 such games already converted stashed on some drive somewhere. :(

As is the case with other boards that have downloadable games, you do need to register, post a minimum number of messages in the forum area, and stay within a daily download limit (unless you go premium membership).  It has one of the most ample download policies out there, though. The best.
