I added a review of a cool new reproduction part! Its a replacement for your kick plate! Check it out under Reviews.

The ALPHA version of Cart Commander was sent to registered users and my testers today.

Updated the Cart Commander page with the system requirements. If someone has a lower end machine that what is listed, then drop me a @EMAIL@ and let me know if its running.

Work has been progressing quite nicely on the new version of Cart Commander. This is going to be a BIG release. Registered users will be getting an ALPHA some time tomorrow to take a peek at it.

I picked up a Nintendo Game Cube last week and all I can say is "Wow!". The games I got are Super Monkey Ball (Sega), Star Wars, Rouge Leader II (Lucas Arts), and Luigi's Mansion (Nintendo). All three games are top notch! Just more to cut into my Restoration time :-(

The DECA 2002 is in full swing over at Snipercade. Hop over there and register to win a HotRod controller for your PC! If you don't know what a DECA is, it's a "Decathlon" for Arcade games played in MAME. There are 10 games to play to qualify, the person with the best score overall wins.

A good friend of mine Shane Monroe, is the author and publisher of Retro Gaming Radio. Retro Gaming Radio is available in MP3 format.

Shane has also developed a couple of really cool Windows games.

VS. Ball is a Strategy game that is a mix between break-out and mahjong with a whole lot of attitude built in. This game is a must see and must play!

Kablooey is a remake of the most popular Activision game on the Atari 2600. Kaboom! This game does it justice and more! Its just as addictive as the original was!

If you couldn't tell, Shane is a busy guy! Well, if you're a DVD freak, like Shane is, then you need to check out his DVD Site!

If you're interested in writing games for windows and want to do it easily, then you should check out his other site called Blitz Profession. This site is dedicated to the programming Language BlitzBasic

Since I'm plugging all of his other sites, I might as well plug his "Home Page" :-). Monroe World is his home page. Check it out.

Restoration/Preservation has begun on my Kickman.
 
It's not a full restoration, but more of a preservation of what is there.  I like trying to keep things as original as possible.  With that in mind, I can take a few chances on this one as the damage is already done.  I'm mainly trying to prevent even more damage when I can.  Worse comes to worse, I'll do a full restore on it down the road.

Well, I decided to update RoboJuke with a new Motherboard, Processor and RAM. The old one was a Celeron 700 with 2MB of RAM running Windows XP. I upgraded to a Celeron N3150 (Quad Core 1.35Ghz), with 8GB of RAM running Windows 10.
After upgrading, I found out that the software I was using (Virtual Music Jukebox) wouldn't run on Windows 10. After looking for a replacement, I gave up and wrote my own Jukebox Software called "Simple JukeBox". It is avilable for FREE, you can read more about it here: http://forums.arcaderestoration.com/topics/17-Simple-JukeBox
