    Default Games! ( question about modifying the arcade zimlet )

    The recently added arcade zimlet is a great addition, old school games right there in the email client are perfect for idling away a moment or two in the day.

    I have a request however, I see these games are basically flash games that I've seen in other places on the net before - I've no problem with that. I see that they have high score functions - that's cool also...... what I want is for the high scores to work like this:

    You play a game and get the highscore, your score is recorded on the zimbra server itself, visible to everyone else when/if they play that game, then if someone beats your score, an email is sent to the highscore owner telling them they are no longer 'top dog'.

    One reason for this is quite simple, deploying games in the workplace can be a killer of productivity, but when staff know that if they play well, while they should be working, then their name may go at the top of the list (along with date/time) and their manager gets a email of the score (of course the managers have all the highscores ) it may encourage them to play responsibly.

    It may not of course, but it would still be a cool addition.
    So, who wrote this zimlet? is it a simple mod or is it amajor headache?

    The zimlet's a screen scrape, what you're describing would require rewriting the flash games to interface with zimbra (to store high scores).

    Yeah, I thought as much, perhaps I'll look into implimenting it in some way once I reach Grand-Master Zimlet hacker status.
