Hi, and welcome to my page where I cover the gadgets I make and sell.  

Updates and random info below. I also post a few updates on https://twitter.com/IrkenLabs.

Not sure it's a good idea, but I've opened a twitter account I can use to announce availability of stuff and other news..

The last Jammafier (for now)

The Jammafier with serial number 100 marks the end of general availability of the Jammafier for now.   Due to real-life obligations (just had my first kid), spending hours and hours in a single sitting to assembling these is just not on the table right now.  

I hope to have them back in stock in the future if there is still demand (send me a message!), but it won't happen for a few months, realistically we're looking at 2020.  The JVS-PAC 2's are a different story, as they are professionally assembled by a 3rd party.  This will also be how new Jammafiers will be made.  One of the reasons I don't do this right away is that all available funds and time will be used towards making the Retro Scaler A1 finished and available - and pending how much time I got available, I hope to have it 'out' in 2019.

JVS-PAC 2 open for order!

I've just opened up sales for the JVS-PAC 2.  Real-life obligations have delayed this a bit, but now it's finally available.  

If you consider getting one, please read through the Introduction and (especially the disclaimer) and have a look at the FAQ.  In theory, it should work with pretty much everything that supports a keyboard - but no guarantees.  If you do something special with it, I would love to hear about it though.

I'm working on a new MAME build, and it seems the path of least resistance that gives the best results is to use a fresh install of Windows 7, attract-mode for front-end and most likely GroovyMame.
