Gremlin Graphics - Sheffield
A lunch hour pilgrimage to the former HQ of Gremlin Graphics on Carver Street in Sheffield, UK. The 'Just Micro' store was way before my time here in Sheffield (2001-) but it's still nostalgic to see just where it was. Imagine, a cool 1980s computer store with a fantastic software house right above it (and connected by stairs I believe) - what a time to be alive in the city of steel :) Here's a link to a great video showing some of the work that went on here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxd7EUo7-Dc&feature=player_embedded

Amstrad PCW 8256 Computer, Games & Batman Footage

Panasonic 3DO FZ-1 Not Completely Region Free
The 3DO is often quoted (and rightly so) as being region free but here is one exception - The PAL version of Wolfenstein 3D will not run on an NTSC Panasonic 3DO FZ-1. Interestingly the warning mesage calls the game 'Wolfenstein 3DO', a typo or perhaps a prototype name for the game? You also get a similar message when attempting to play the PAL version of Soccer Kid on an NTSC 3DO.

Yobo FC 16 Go Portable SNES Region Mod - Part 2
Part 2 of my super easy mod that will enable the FC 16 Go version 2 to play Super Famicom and PAL Super Nintendo games. All tested games worked fine (Alien 3 just had dirty contacts). Tools required: Screwdriver & Needle Nose Pliers. Mod time: 10 Mins. Unusually although running at 60Hz, the console display (it can also be hooked up to a TV) shows black borders when playing NTSC & Super Famicom games. In the case of Super Mario Kart, the PAL version has smaller borders than the NTSC version! The only game I have had issues playing is the PAL version of Super Mario Kart, which displays some graphical glitching through this console. The NTSC version works fine though.
