Lol, casual gamers are more likely to play things when they're online ;)

Hey, that's actually pretty cool.

It doesn't seem to work on Opera, though. Java does work on Opera, not sure why your applet doesn't.

What's the difference between downloading a ZIP file and opening the standalone EXE vs. playing the game on your site? It still has to download the file and everything, so it doesn't reduce too much time? Is this feature more for Game Maker games?

It doesn't work on Opera? What game where you testing it on? Try this one: http://gmarcade.com/game/DeathWorm.html I know it works.

As for the difference, there is none. It just eliminates clicks and gives the impression of online play. And this feature is for any kind of executable game :)

Maybe I don't have Java configured correctly. :(
I'll have to look into it later.

Games that require installation obviously won't work with this, right? How many of the games on your site work with this? Or are most of the games on your site Game Maker games right now?

Either way it's a pretty cool idea. It can definitely give users the feeling of a quicker play of the game.

Almost all of the games work right now, installation games won't work with this (it would just run the install file...which I guess would be okay). It doesn't matter if the games are Game Maker or not, any exe game will work. However, yes, most are GM games.

Thanks :)

Thanks Casho, I'm glad you like it! :) If you ever have any ideas for me, just post them in the forums on GMA or here. I'm always welcome to new suggestions, and they usually get added very quickly.

Hey your getting free hosting for your game. If he doesn't get the money, what will pay for bandwidth?
