Fall update 2020

There has been close to zero R&D last few months, and it will unfortunately continue like that until sometime in December.  I started a new job this summer, and right now I’m in the middle of moving out of our apartment in the city centre  to a proper house with garden on the outside.  I will miss having coffee shops and stores minutes away by foot, but look forward to having a dedicated office/lab, garage, garden etc.  As if that wasn’t enough, I’m also getting my drivers license and a car, which is kind of a thorough process here in Norway.  Anyway, I expect to be done with all of this in December.

Store closing 1 – 15 October

I’m away on business a couple of weeks, and instead of getting a backlog of unshipped orders I will simply close the online store the first weeks of October.  The store will likely also close for a week or two in November.


I’ve gotten a few emails about JVS-PAC 2 not working with MiSTer, and I can confirm it is indeed problematic at this point.  I got a MiSTer setup myself, and I’m positive that it will work some time in the future.  

A possible fix/workaround will be to implement the planned gamepad mode for the JVS-PAC 2, but given all the problem-reports I’ve been reading for a lot of different devices this is just a theory.  A good test to check if a setup is working properly is to load up a 2 player 6 button game, enter test mode and press all buttons for all players at the same time, while move the joysticks around.  I expect this simple test would reveal issues with a lot of MiSTer setups..

From my perspective, the problem is mostly with the input model of MiSTer, they could learn a couple of lessons form the MAME project..

Stock levels

Except the A1 scaler, no stock shortage in sight for the foreseeable future.  I’ve initiated another run of the A1 scalers, but may run out of stock until it’s completed.
