About Arcade Panel
Arcade Panel is a menu specifically designed to run various game addons in WOW. The panel offers an attractive interface for the loading and unloading of game mods (that's right, no need to have them loaded in memory if you're not playing them), as well as starting them up to play a game. Arcade Panel will check for games from a recognized list inside the mod, as well as check all mods in the addons folder that have support for Arcade Panel. Directions for adding your own game mod to Arcade Panel is listed in the readme file inside the Arcade Panel folder.
Arcade Panel is bundled with every game I have released, and they are all the most current versions of those games. Once you download this addon, any new game that is released by me will automatically support Arcade Panel and you will not need to redownload this addon.
Turn it on, load it up, turn on and off the games you want to play, then hit PLAY! Pretty simple.

Your choice of FOUR ways to show the button for Arcade Panel:
- Floating Button (drag it where ever you want!)
- Mini-Map Button (for the standard WOW mini-map, this button will lock to it and you can drag it around)
- Game Menu Button (This will attach to WOW's Game Menu. It's the menu where all your video, macro, and keybinding settings are)
- None (for those that don't want a button)
With so many games that I've worked on for WOW, I was getting tired of having them run in the background when I wasn't using them, or worse, not being loaded when I wanted to use them. So, I wrote this mod to address that issue and step it up a notch. I also wanted to load other games that I didn't make, so I added that function to the Arcade Panel if other game mod developers wish to use it. Of course, I'm still looking for more games to add to the collection, so if anyone finds some good ones, send me a PM and let me know ^_^
If other game mod designers contact me and let me know of their game, or if I find other games that are constantly updated, I will add those games to the recognized list and update this version of the Arcade Panel. Other than that, nothing is planned except the standard updates when WOW gets patched ^_^
