About me and this site
Welcome to Bacteria’s site!
I am a modding enthusiast and hobbyist, interested in making old retro video game consoles into handheld portable systems. I live in England, and am in my forties. Since 2007 I have been interested in this hobby and devote much of my free time to it.
I previously had a web site, http://www.modded-by-bacteria.com that got over 100,000 hits in about a year, however the site looked basic, didn’t load quickly, used Soholaunch software which wasn’t the best to use and the web host was unreliable. I therefore shut my old web site and started on this blog, which is also great as it allows people to comment and ask me questions (subject to my approval of the posts of course).
My intention, over time, is to mod most of the retro console systems and produce guides for doing such; whether or not they become a separate handheld console or one made into a Multi-system is just as relevant as I shall show how to mod them, reduce the boards as needed, rig up power, audio and video to them. All my guides are free, so enjoy!
My aim is to eventually have a site that holds all the information someone needs to make a large range of portables; with my free guides and videos. I hope you enjoy this site, please leave feedback!
How about joining the Chat Room / Forum? (link below or on right menu bar). It doesn’t matter if you don’t have modding questions, how about discussion on retro console games too? or general chatter about gaming and systems? I am on the site a couple of times every day for a while…
