Disclaimer / Important Notes:

These read these important information before you purchase, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

  • This plugin does NOT come with any games. You can easily use the built-in import tools to import thousand of games from Kongregate, as well as adding your own games.
  • Although this plugin has built in tool which allows you to easily download game swf files from Kongregate server to host them on your site, some badly coded games may NOT work properly unless they are hosted on Kongregate. In such case, you just need to use the hot-link method, and don't host that game swf file on your site. Also there are games that may load files externally, and those external files may not be available anymore for some reason, hence cause the game to be broken, and not loaded.
  • We do NOT responsible for any games's content, quality whatsoever. We are not game developer nor distributor, hence we will not be able to provide any support for games!!! This plugin has built-in support for different game status, you can always review and test game content / quality prior publishing them on your site. Anyway, there are tens of thousands games out there. Our recommendation is just move on to different games that work. It's just not really worth the time and effort to dig deep into any single game. Of course, you can always try to contact the game's developer directly, and ask them to help.
  • If you have a different Game plugin installed on your site from another developer (not Radcodes'), you may have to completely remove it from your site (files / database tables, row entries - disable the plugin in Admin :: Manage Packages & Plugins is NOT enough) before you can install Radcodes Game Arcade Plugin. Please contact developer of your current installed Game plugin on how to do that. We can help you completely remove the plugin for you for a FEE (charged work) if you can't get the plugin's developer to do that for you.
