If you are trying to drum up "orders" why would you show a fail video like this. Dumbfounded!

To be fair...I've also tried to swap 68k processors on my Genesis and it not only requires having the right tools (I do own a Hakko FR-300), but the Genesis systems are also incredibly finicky in regard to what CPU they will accept. Even with my de-soldering iron I still had one trace get damaged that that needed repair, and even though I installed a 64-pin socket to more easily pop out and try different processors, I'm unable to get anything other than the original Signetics that came with my Genesis to boot all games and work reliably. I say reliably but even Sonic 3 still requires that I power up and play other games for a bit before trying it. 

 

So I'm not defending this guy and clearly in that video things don't go well. But with the tools he had on hand, it appears he did give it his ole college try. Yes, he should have continued with the solder and de-solder of the pins noting which ones were being especially difficult before trying to give it the gusto he did at the end. Additionally, while using a flat bladed screw driver isn't a horrible method, I would have used one much smaller than that or better yet, my chip puller.

I contacted this loser back when he first started selling his svideo Genny mods. His response time & constant excuses about everything was an immediate red flag. I cannot even fathom how many guys actually sent him money & consoles to mod.

I guess I was one of the lucky ones, I ordered a s-video / RCA audio modded Genesis about a year ago, sent the payment, got the console within a week or so and it's been working great since then.... such a shame to see someone who can obviously do this stuff do a runner with peoples stuff :(

Frankly, it's no one's business but I'm currently staying at an IRTS facility. I'm the transition of moving away from two abusive parents who've manipulated me my entire life. I lost money on every single console I modded (pretty much). I don't have access to any outstanding systems.

 

The genesis I ruined in the 68k transplant video was my own. I have video of almost every single console I modded and will probably post some of them in them in the future. I only modded (I believe) 20 systems. 4 of which, I still haven't returned because I can't. I'd like to get this settled, but I can't. I'd like to tell everyone that I didn't purposely take their systems, but it's not like anyone would believe me anyhow. 

 

I'd like to get this done with, but there's nothing I can do.

 

Believe me, a ruined reputation is worse than any other form of punishment, so you guys succeeded in reprimanding me.

 

I'll be moving into my own apartment in the foreseeable future. I'll be grabbing my stuff from my parents house and leaving forever. I'll be able to start returning things then. For the record, I got a visit from a detective, and given the circumstances - no action was taken against me since PayPal reversed (I think) every outstanding transaction. 

 

I plan to keep soldering, posting videos, and modding my own consoles. I don't plan to ever offer mod services again. It wasn't profitable anyhow and having a real job (while nowhere near as fun) is what I'll be doing for money. I plan to keep post on this forums since I quite enjoy having conversations about a hobby that I so dearly enjoy. But this will follow me on here forever and that's too bad; while the circumstances of my inability to provide proper service is sad - I only have myself to blame for that. 

 

All I can say right now is I'm sorry.

So let me get this straight you are a grown ass adult that had a detective come see you about stolen property that I am assuming is at your parents but you can't get those systems and the detective was ok with that.

 

BS!

 

I tried sticking up for you in this thread but enough is enough. Grab that damn detective, get your ass over to your parents house, and get people their shit back!

 

If I misread the above and the systems are actually gone then you can't start returning things EVER and you better start sending people some money.

 

You are right this will always follow you but you keep doing this to yourself. Every post is another excuse. Just as this last one is.
