Would be great to get a little more info about how it sounds better.

 

 

Ditto.

Our hardware guy managed to improve signal-to-noise ratio a bit, just that.

Is the difference audible?

Sometimes, depending on the game, volume, if you have a good ear, etc... Not a big deal IMHO.

Ok, time for another update:

 

- We finally got the nameplates. However, before we start sending replacement nameplates, we want to concentrate on getting our 3 upcoming games/modules behind us. 

- After 2 weeks fighting the boxes, we finally have everything ready to go to the printer. I just recorded a 30 minutes podcast explaining why it took so long to get those boxes completed (that actually started back in December), but the end result is kind of boring, so unless someone absolutely needs and wants to know about this kind of stuff, suffice to say we had all kinds of problems, but it is all good now.

- Still waiting for the final SGM prototype. Should get that this week.

 

So yeah, boxes and PCBs are the only remaining missing components.

Well hopefully most of the people who need the replacement nameplate have ordered one of your new games and you can save some money on shipping

Does it open and close like the new game box designs do? Locking closed with magnets on the side?

A thing of beauty.

 

Is this the one that will be supplied if pre-ordered through the AA store?

Yes, same box type. :)

Exactly, that is the box for the 3rd run sold by AA Store.

Excited about the Super Game Module and all our Super Game Cartridge games? How about a catalog that lists everything? To be included with every Opcode release...

So Pac-Man Collection will be renamed Pac-Man DX? Any chance that Pac-Man Plus will be fully unlocked and accessible from the title screen? That seems appropriate to me if the cartridge carries a different name...

That is the plan. The best hasn't been announced yet. ;)

Awesome! That's a great addition I've been wanting to see for years in homebrew releases. :)

And I finally ordered a Canadian Power Supply, so it can handle the SGM and the modded Genesis controller with a pass-thru.  Hopefully it'll solve the vdp glitchy issue and vram curruption due to bad wires.  You don't want to play Knightmare with flickering duplicated enemies and their shots in the wrong spots.  Probably not enough voltage going to the vdp causing that and not turning on the bit to move the sprite #8-31 over 128 pixels.

That is awesome!  Certain things like this I remember always liking: Sears Wish Book, ToysRUs Christmas Catalog in boxes of Cheerios and video game catalogs showing past, present and future games!  :)

 

Any ETA on when Gradius and Penguin Adventure will be shipping along with these things of beauty (aka catalogs)?

Hoping that means my late request for a 3rd run SGM can be accommodated - pretty please :)

Any thoughts on how many might be available in the store? I would love to get a hold of a 3rd run version!
