A couple of days ago, I fell in love. See pictures below: Hand made, all metal, extremely short throw/engage, super-sweet goodness. Nicer than a tweaked SUZO 500 even. This is my stick of choice now. If these go into production, look no further for that perfect joystick if you’re into shmups. I’ve suggested some (size) …

It’s a tiny dedicated unit that produces scanlines for game consoles or emulator setups where you don’t have a scanline option in the video settings, or when you don’t want to put extra processing strain on your emulator setup. It will accept VGA …

Received this awesome RGB Scart to JAMMA adapter today from Australia. A couple of days ago I also got a pair of Akihabarashop’s P360 so tonight I finished wiring it (no soldering nor crimping needed) them up like this: The RGB to Scart adapter picture have a nifty ribbon cable that you can move from …

Today was kinda a great day. I received a Hacha Mecha Fighter PCB, and two new (with correct colours) EGRET II 1-player CPOs that I’ll be applying ASAP. Update: I have applied the CPOs above now:

So, last week my harddrive gave up. Naturally this has taken it’s toll on the site updates, even though I really haven’t had anything to put here. In case you’ve missed it, there are some awesome new additions to MAME since last week. Ketsui, Do-Donpachi Dai-Ou-Jou (including Black Label) and ESPGALUDA. Initally the last one …

Finally had a fitting moment to pull the Gemini Wing bootleg I bought back in March out of storage to snap a picture of it. It’s now added to the GAMES page on this site.

Picked up my second EGRET II today: (Sorry for the iPhone picture, I didn’t have a lot of time tonight). It does have some scuffs in the bezel and surrounding body, but just some fast touching up with some appliance paint really made a whole world of difference right away. Already ordered parts to assemble …
