    I bit the bullet and spent the 5 bucks to get this game. I really enjoy it. I love shooters so I was eager to use my x-arcade tankstick, but sadly one of the controls requires aiming with a mouse or an analogue stick. So I used the X-Box controller instead and quickly got into the flow of ...

    I was browsing through some old photos and saw these. I don't think I shared them before as they were a little fuzzy. I am pretty picky.

    The system won't be ready for prime time until 15th of April 2021 sadly. I am still very interested. This does not look like vapourware to me. Lets see who comes out first. Atari VCS or Amico. I look forward to reliving my youth, fighting over which system was better. Intellivision!!! ...

    What I find so interesting about the arcade world is the communities that have sprung up in support of ancient machines and games.Some of us grew up next to an arcade, some only heard about them from the old timers. But now they have made a comeback and people outside of the arcade world are contributing ...

    Over the weekend I had a breakthrough in my quest to get 240p or 480p out of a raspberry pi to a CRT.

    There are 4 ways to get video from a Raspberry Pi. HDMI, Composite, using a header, or dircectly soldering to some video out posts. I tried the HDMI route but kept failing.

    Just wanted to give a quick update. I managed to get my Raspberry Pi to output 240p, so emulated console games look fantastic on a CRT.I'll post all the details later tonight. Right now I am out on a rescue run, picking up a whole whack of Atari paddles.
