Arcadecraft Content Update 3 Now Available!

Our 3rd Content Update for Arcadecraft is now available for download on the Xbox Live Marketplace!

Included in this update is:

New Content:
◾1 New Cocktail Machine
◾1 New Music Track
◾2 New “Graphics” Customization Options.
◾Pop Machine and Jukebox now show their stats on the purchase screen.
◾Pinball Machines have an ambient shadow
◾???Secret Number Added???

Balancing:
◾Machine Genres are now worth more popularity, but less than in Content Update 1.
◾The employee Rick Pennywise, has been tweaked to empty change at a higher threshold.

Performance:
◾The game should hold 30fps with around 26-27 machines in the space. This is up a good 4 machines from before.

Bugs Fixed:
◾Tickertape bug should be fixed.
◾Hot Square no longer appears outside of the arcade.
◾Unjamming Pinball Machines has the coins displaying in the proper place.
◾Angry Gamer now spawns in more random places.
◾Bobby Danger exploit fixed.

Still Not in this Update:
◾The new environment is not in this update. The reason is that there is currently performance/framerate issues with having 44 machines available on screen at once. It is pointless to ship the new space if it only offers the same machine limits as the current space.

On the current Xbox Marketplace we are aware that the cover art is not up to date. Hopefully it can be fixed soon so if you still see the old cover after you have done the update don’t worry about it.

We hope you have fun playing the game with the new content! If you have any issues, concerns, or comments, please email us!

More exciting Arcadecraft news should be coming in a couple short weeks! Thank you for your support!

Arcadecraft Content Update 2 Available

We are happy to report that Content Update 2 for Arcadecraft is now available!

Included in this update is:

New Content:

  • 4 New Pinball Machines!
  • 10 New Standup Cabinets. Many of them 2 player simultaneous.
  • 1 New Import Cabinet.
  • 1 New Sitdown Cockpit Machine.
  • 1986 now has machines available in it.
  • Dec 1987 is now the final month.
  • New audio added for the selector and pinball machines.

Balancing:

  • Machine Genres are now worth less popularity.
  • Pinball is a new Genre, and available in year 1 to rebalance the above point.
  • Release dates for a given year are now no longer static. 1980 machines remain 1980 machines but the month of release is now randomized. So every play through is different and unique.
  • The employee Rick Pennywise, now works faster and will empty machines at a lower threshold.
  • The storage room now acts like a proper storage room. Machines in storage do not count as machines on the arcade floor. So the upper limit of machines in your arcade is now 34.

Not in this Update

  • The new environment is not in this update. The reason is that there is currently performance/framerate issues with having 44 machines available on screen at once. It is pointless to ship the new space if it only offers the same machine limits as the current space.

On the current Xbox Marketplace we are aware that the cover art is not up to date. Hopefully it can be fixed soon so if you still see the old cover after you have done the update don’t worry about it.

We hope you have fun playing the game with the new content! If you have any issues, concerns, or comments, please email us! Thank you for your support!

Here are the screenshots we promised!

You will notice the 8 new standup machines, the first of the pinball machines, the new environment, and a new car for the exterior! You’ll also notice that everything is in progress and there are obvious errors here and there but everything will continue to be iterated on over the next few weeks. The look is only going to improve as the pieces of the puzzle fall into place! It wasn’t fair to not show you what we have been building after we have been talking about it.
