New theme for the site

So, the Graphene theme has been great for a long time, but I just wanted to change something. I had managed to somehow mess up the menu at some point, and couldn't make it look uniform, whatever I tried. So, I'm gonna try this theme for a while. I like the fixed menu it has, quicker navigation is always a plus in my book. Please leave a comment if you're a returning visitor and think I should've stayed with Graphene. ...

Finally, an update!

Hello, readers. Since I became a dad for the third time, coupled with the injury I sustained to my left hand, the arcade hobby has taken a backseat. But, this is not the end. I have other hobbies that has gotten a lot of attention, like making music and collecting vinyl records. These hobbies are nothing new in my life though, I've been DJing since 1994 or something like that, and making electronic music on and off since 1995. Lately, I've been focusing on the music, as it's a fun output and very satisfying where you can clearly see a progression, I took some inspiration from the escape room atlanta in order to finish the ambience sound. The thing I'm working on now, is the musical score for a new PC shmup, Zenohell, that's being made by a cracking team of shmup enthusiasts. I have pretty much carte blanche for it, but I'm getting very nice feedback from the project leader (main...

Happy New Year!

Hey, In the middle of the pre-Christmas rush, I sold my Strikers 1945 PCB. I also received a baby boy. So plenty of time to spend with him playing games in the future, hopefully. :) Also placed an order with Paradise Arcade for some stuff, as a Christmas present for myself, kinda. Will give some thoughts on the stuff as I receive it. Hopefully, I'll have some more cool updates for you on this site this year, stay tuned....

Why the lack of updates for the last couple of months?

Why the lack of updates for the last couple of months?

If you're sensitive, you might wanna skip the next paragraph. Well, on March the 9th, I was in a really gruesome accident at work that almost claimed my left hand as I got it stuck between a pair of very heavy duty tracks (I think this is the word for them) that crushed my hand severely, so bad in fact, that amputation of my left thumb was on the table as I was rushed in to Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg. Luckily for me, the doctor's cold nerves had them hold the cutting to the bare essentials, and we just gave my poor, crushed limbs a chance to recover. The accident I had in March, described above, has left me with a functionally compromised left hand, and a slightly smaller thumb that is sensitive and awkward, thus doing hobby stuff is now really frustrating, having to put many cool projects on hold and really straining the amount of cash I can spend on...

Darwin 4078 get! Also, fixed some layout issues.

Last night I had a small shmupmeet at home and one of my guests presented me with a very nice gift - a Data East "Darwin 4078" PCB! He knew how I had longed to own this game, but it really never pops up for sale, so he gave me his board. Thanks a lot, Sticky! As I added this game to my list of vertical games, I noticed that somehow the page's layout has been messed up, so I fixed it. In other news, I'm almost done with the supergun I'm building, so I had it running all of last night so my guests could play horizontal games on my TV without me having to rotate my screens. It was quite a success, I'm happy to say. I'll do a write-up of my supergun buil when I'm 100% done with it along with a list of used components. BONUS! Here are a couple of Youtube videos from my shmupmeet last night: ...
