Warrior 64 Reviewed; Suspicions Confirmed

Metal Jesus just posted a review of the Warrior 64 kickstarter and unfortunately, all of our concerns have been verified:  Even after IntecGaming claimed “UltraHDMI-like quality”, it appears to be just a LevelHike cable soldered directly to the RGB output 🙁 I guess the good news is the case seemed like it was decent quality, […]

Darksoft CPS3 SIMM ROM replacements

Darksoft has shown a very short work-in-progress video on the arcade-projects forums of a new Capcom CPS3 modification: https://www.arcade-projects.com/forums/index.php?thread/15229-new-cps3-simms-8-times-the-size-of-a-regular-simm/ This kit replaces the RAM SIMMs in a standard arcade CPS3 kit with flash ROMs.  This offers two distinct advantages: ROMs cannot corrupt, unlike RAM chips can. ROMs are instantly accessible, and avoid the very lengthy […]

PiTrex Raspberry Pi Vectrex Interface

There’s a new project for Vectrex consoles that allows you to route a Raspberry Pi Zero…right through the cartridge port!  This is all possible, because the Vectrex’s cartridge port is granted access to pretty much the entire system, including the controls and display.  As a result, this project essentailly turns the Vectrex into an emulation-based […]

X-station firmware 1.0.4 released

While it’s only been a couple of weeks since the X-station received its latest firmware update, the project’s main developer ramapcsx2  just released yet another newer update that improves, or rather simplifies compatibility and addresses a few bugs.
