Re: The Rotary Stick/Loop Lever games...

1. Finding an LS-30 in a state worth caring for is diffucult 2. Mounting it might be tricky if your base isn't thick/tall enough 3. Interfacing it with MAME might be tricky as well as the LS-30's rotary has digital fixed points and MAME (IIRC) uses spinner/mouse for this I think Ultimarc's Ultrastik...

Re: Robot Monsters control panel

But the game still uses digital inputs, right? Or is that an analogue joystick?

Wow, Psychic 5 AND Argus are both by NMK? Even more reason to love 'em. Argus is really unique. Psychic 5's scoring i too complicated for me though, I only went for the clear back when this was in the arcades...

Re: Katsuhiro Otomo Genga Exhibition

So apparently you can sit on Kaneda's bike and have your photograph taken. Gotta go do this. A Japanese mate of mine posted his on FB. He's a pretty well known DJ w/ plenty of hipsters on his friend list. Pretty cool shot, actually. They even supply a red leather jacket! You can try viewing his pag...

Re: Black Dragon

Congrats. I'll get back to this game eventually. Thanks. I recorded a replay a while ago but didn't know that pausing while recording breaks the replay. *facepalm* So everything worked fine up until the start of stage four as the phone rang and I had to pause. I'll record a new one when my bandaged...

Are you referring to the US Prime Suspect, or the UK original with Helen Mirren? Cracker was a damn fine show.

Re: Jigoku Meguri (Taito, 1988)

Better than Rastan Saga's music? Hard to believe. Rastan Saga is one of my faves. It is not a hard 1CC, but it's a game I've played a lot. I'd say the Stage 3 boss can be an asshole. Also note that if you hit something w/ your weapon mid-jump, it does like 3x damage. Don't you mean the 4th boss? Th...

Re: Data East

Chelnov is probably my favourite (of the platform/side scrollers), I might pick up a PCB soon. I ICC'd Bad Dudes and Secret Agent back in the day, but both are pretty memorization heavy. I've owned the Secret Agent PCB for a couple of years but didn't click with it all as an "adult". :) No...

Some sound has been emulated now, but no music yet, so no new binaries to try. This feels even faster than the PGM emu development. ;)
