    I'll be interested to see how the RMC system is, it's really cool idea.

    I’ll put some pictures up when it arrives.  I’m not expecting the 3D printed case to be that great but we’ll see.


    LGR posted a video on it yesterday.

    Cart won’t fit a JPN machine


    I don’t see how that can be true seeing as Japanese carts are bigger than other regions.  Unless they mean Japanese machines that still have the cart lock.  All grey import machines have this removed as its only one screw to disable. 

  3. Yeah I’ve ordered the version without the hole as I’ll be using HDMI or VGA.  As @robotattack pointed out - the case includes a fan that can be run at 3.3v or 5v to deal with the heat.  I just have the DE10 at the moment so I guess I’ll also need to buy a heat sink for the cpu.  Not sure tbh.


  4. Someone over at the Sega 16 forums is hacking one of my favourite games Ghouls ’n’ Ghosts so it looks more like the arcade.  The original is an early game and didn’t have the option of using a larger rom to replicate the arcade graphics as well as it could have.  It must be a huge task, I really hope he finishes it.

  5. I understand that the RMC board isn’t very tempting for those who already have a full set up.  For me though who is just starting out it makes a lot of sense.  Plus I like the consolized form factor over the rectangular stack.  I’m undecided on the 3D printed case at the moment and the price will determine if I get one or wait to see what happens further down the line.


  6. I like the look of this




    The latest compilation in the essential Too Slow To Disco series is undoubtedly one of the best yet. Instead of focusing on sugary, pitched-down disco, the set showcases what it calls "yacht soul" - suitably sweet, often overblown yacht rock and downtempo disco covers of classic soul songs.

    There's some superb material on show throughout, with our highlights including Boby Everett's jazz-rock-meets-Philly Soul take on the Beach Boys' 'God Only Knows', a hot-stepping '80s soul cover of Fleetwood Mac's Balearic classic gem 'Everywhere' by Chaka Khan, a deliciously tactile and loved up, boogie-era Aretha Franklin recording of 'What a Fool Believes' and a frankly triumphant, heavily orchestrated soul cover of Paul McCartney's 'Let 'Em In' by the brilliant Billy Paul.

    I'm curious to know if anyone here owns or has owned a Falcon. My ST-owning mate at college was obsessed with the Falcon, made it sound like it had landed from another planet, crammed full of custom chips and whatnot. They were rare then, virtual hen's teeth now. 

    I remember seeing a demo of an Atari Falcon in a music shop around 1992-3 and being amazed when someone who worked there recorded CD quality audio on it and zoomed into the waveform and edited it.  Futuristic stuff at the time.


    After Atari went bust music software producer C-Lab bought the rights to create their own Falcons and these are even rarer.






    Also Sony were “inspired” by the unreleased Falcon Microbox for the design PlayStation 2
