12 April 2013
Well, spent a lot of time on my Project Unity system, and it is nearly done. Should have it completed in the next week or two. Made a LOT of progress on the project since the last update here, i’m not keeping this WordPress site going as it’s no longer relevant because of my website, http://www.made-by-bacteria.com . Only keeping this site going as it is free to run and also gets 300-400 hits a day still (thanks guys!).
This system will be shown at the Revival Show in May, where I have been invited by the organisers to be one of the speakers at the event. I am also hoping that the exposure from this project will not only get a lot of interest from the media but hopefully breathe life back into the modding hobby by encouraging a new influx of members to join the forum and take part in the hobby; let’s see if that happens!

Sorry, I don’t update this WordPress site these days much at all, everything is on my forum, all guides and much more besides, and that is updated very often.

17 December 2011
Working hard on getting the new replacement forum in place. Put in a couple of mods, and all the forum sections. That forum will supersede this WordPress site and also the other forum will be closed to new posts when the new forum is running – probably around a month. I’ll still update this WordPress site but all it’s content will be on the new forum; so my main interest. Have a look:

Been working in the background on this commission – guy on the forum wanted a GoldenEye themed console, 4 player port, with the game cart hard-wired into the console. The case is made (pic taken at night so colours wrong, and also pic taken at an angle, but will do for the moment):

About 85% completed on next N64 portable, when that’s complete and tested, i’ll upload a video on that too!
Someone else is sending me another Philips CD-i 220 console that has issues, graphic issues and also CD drive eject issues, i’ll have a look at that after finishing the N64 commission above. I’m also going to remake the N64 front for dmbjunky’s N64 portable to incorporate a different screen and a few minor improvements. After that, back to the Alpha Omega project, and Alpha Omega Jnr project too.
