Also, in case you haven’t heard already, there is a very talented eBayer seller making 3D printed cases for these adapters! We will have a few to sell here on our site soon but we just aren’t quite ready to get them listed yet. If you need a case for your joystick adapter please check out Paez3D on eBay! These cases fit very nicely, they are good quality, sleek and match the TI-99/4a design so well! Check them out for yourself!
Kevin (Resound creator, owner and my husband) has been a fan of classic adventure style games like Kings Quest, Space Quest, The Secret of Monkey Island and the like since he was a kid. So needless to say when we saw Clint’s tweet about Chuck Jones: Space Cop of the Future by Jake S. Del Mastro we were super stoked!
Take some time and check out is development blog to see more of this fabulous game as it grows to completion! He has a lot of great details and we are very excited to see it finished!
In the works now are more Lo-tech Compact Flash Adapter cards, just waiting for the parts to arrive, which should be here in a few days. We restocked them last week and before we even had a chance to post about the new stock, all but one sold. So we will be making twice as many this time. Thanks to all of you who bought them and we will have more, likely next week!
We do have a few more cards in the pipeline and maybe a new Lo-tech card. Hopefully we will here from James soon. Stay tuned…
We are thrilled to announce that we have opened up shipping to international buyers and we have restocked a few of our out of stock items with PCB’s made with ENIG!
Shipping Destinations Expanded:
After requests started coming in for international shipping we thought, why wait? Since we have already shipped to Canada, Portugal and Australia upon request and have been filling international orders via eBay we decided to go ahead and open up our store to past successful shipping destinations! These additional areas include Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Europe, South Korea, Japan and Mexico. Here is a map showing all of the areas where we are currently providing shipping services:
We also have a couple of new boards in the making. They are still in the beta phase but we hope to have them completed shortly and we can hardly wait to unveil them! More details to come so stay tuned.
Welcome to our store, and thanks so much for stopping by! We are finally ready to go live and begin servicing the DIY Retro PC & Gaming market.
We are calling this a soft-launch as we just completed the site and want to make sure we have all of the bugs worked out. While we don’t anticipate any issues, please be patient if we make a mistake, or delay an order due to an issue with the store. We will make sure you get your items, and will strive to get them to you quickly.
Initially, we will be selling to the USA only for our launch. The reason for this is that the boards we are selling right now are HASL based, which means they contain lead. This process has been used for many years, and nearly every silver PC card you’ve seen from the 1980’s to today likely uses this process. The cost is slightly lower on these boards, but it is actually more durable than the ENIG finish, which is the more common gold looking finish. (Hard gold may be considered later, but the cost is fairly high in low volume, so we will need to wait.)
We placed this order to ensure the boards were made correctly from the PCB manufacturer, and keep the cost low in the event of a failed batch. Thankfully, they all worked out great! We will place a larger order next time for ENIG boards and then we start selling globally. We will likely place that order in two-three weeks as the other boards sell.
Please take a look around the store, and let us know what else we should add. We plan to expand products soon, and are already working on a few more items right now. We welcome any suggestions, or if you have a product you want to take to market, let us know!
