Adding games or newer games to the Arcade

Hi All,
Is there any way to add more games or newer games to the arcade?
I have all the arcade games loaded, I have taken out a few that either dont open at all, or are not in english.
Is there any way to add more arcade games to the forum arcade?
Thanks All

No, SMF is the only one who can add games due to the package manager

That could wind up taking up a lot of server space with everyone doing so as well as probably being a security hazard.

Poppy you can use the webpage editor, make a page and a custom tab to access it and put the code for a game on that tab.    Can't add/install more games into the Arcade however and that was what the original question was ;)

How do you add more games by using the web page editor? Any tuts available? I tried to search before posting this question ... This post is the only result I got.
Thanks in advance for helping me.  :)

You would need to find a place that has free games and offers codes that you can use for them.
Here is one I know of.. you'ld have to search the web for others.
http://www.miniclip.com/games/en/webmaster-games.php
You will see a list of games.  Select a game and press the "get code" button , copy the code.

You can use the game code on a webpage using the webpage editor.   There is a somewhat webpage editor guide with some tips throughout it.   There is too much to it to actually write up a complete guide.    The guide here is listed in the Guides and Tutorial Index.  (pinned to the top of the Guides and Tutorial Board - also in my sig)

You could also check the website/forum for the maker of the editor and see if there is some help/tutorials there.   http://tinymce.moxiecode.com/index.php

You'll need some experience with either using an editor or with html -   if you want to put many games on it you would probably want to do them in tables to get them to line up well.
