Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Suggestion: "GAME ON" button?

Red Machine DRed Machine D __BANNED USERS regular
Would it be possibly to implement a button that changes your status thing under your avatar to identify what game you're playing at any given time? Like say, if I hit the button and put in :"GUNBOUND, 12-666-wang" as my Game On, then under my avatar it'd say "GAME ON: GUNBOUND: 12-666-wang". Do something like that, and also have it appear in a menu like the Who Is Online page... something like

[Edit Profile] [FAQ] [Search] [Usergroups] [Who is Online] [Game On]

or something.

Is this possible? Feasible? doable?

    If you're playing a game, you're not gonna appear on the Who Is Online page. Also as more people post new pages will happen and no one will see your posts anyways since you aren't making new ones while playing.

    Interesting idea, but it wouldn't be that useful

    You know what would be useful in that situation? xFire.

    Well now you put yourself in a position to explain to me what is xFire, why is it better than an IM program, etc ?


    Also, the idea sounds nifty, bu probably no real need or purpose when you could just continue making Game On threads with the words Game On in them. :|

    Rumor has it that it is a Game On forum completely unmoderated. :wink:

    xfire is basicall an IM program, but it's centered around gaming. so when someone leaves to go play a game, it shows what game and the server info. it's basically a mixture of gamespy and AIM.
