Archive - All news and updates from 2013 are archived
08/05/2013 A lot
of catch up as I frantically work to get the site up to being current.
I've done a lot of work to the Galaga Multigame cabinet over the past year
but haven't had time to update the service log. That changes today.
Additionally the RTM articles archive has been caught up to one month behind
the current issue.
05/05/2013 Big updates
and changes! The long promised update and new organization of the
pictures archive is complete. Over this year better and newer pictures
will be added to the archive. The big change this time is a more
universal naming scheme on the back end to facilitate easier updates as
well as a new category organization. I have also uploaded all new
pictures of my Legend of Zelda wall clock that I had been meaning to do
for awhile. I've also updated a bunch of the master list directories
to catch back up.
changes have been completed on all the Editorial pages. These had
to do with removing the table that each of these columns were written inside.
It was a holdover from a much earlier design of the site and needed to
go for quite some time. Additionally the JVC X'Eye section has been
removed as I got rid of almost all of my Genesis stuff when I traded my
JVC X'Eye awhile ago. Late last year I picked up a Model 1 Genesis,
hard AV and USA/JPN modded it, and plan on keeping that for Genesis cartridge
gaming going forward. Due to this there is a new Sega Genesis listing
under the Master List directory. I really didn't keep much at all
when I bailed from the platform but there are a few games listed there.
this update is really just to get extremely out-of-line parts of the site
back to where they should be. Toward the end of last year I sold
off a ton of stuff including clearing out the 7800, Sega Master System,
3DO, and Intellivision stuff. Really the 7800 and Intellivision were
never getting played. I went through my Master System games one day
and came to the realization that, while I don't have any problem with the
platform and there are some spectacular games on it, it was all really
just collecting dust. My 3DO stopped working finally so I decided
to get away from that platform as well but I had been getting rid of my
3DO stuff for years up until this point anyway. There were also quite
a few additions for the Famicom, NES, PS1, PS2, and WonderSwan Color -
too much stuff to list individually.
reorganized and updated with better categories and new images.
As I said last October, the previous year
rolled by really fast. Also as I said last October, there's no excuse
for lack of updates and new content. I do however have some content
in the works, like current and on the way content. Next week there
will be a great deal of cosmetic changes throughout the site but they will
be relatively minor in that no one but me will really notice. A section
of the Master List will be removed while a very old section takes its place.
Lastly, I will be finally cleaning up the Pictures section which has both
gotten out of hand and been left collecting dust at the same time.
The whole thing will be reorganized with new, clearer pictures replacing
the old ones where applicable. Basically if it's an item I still
have and I'm unhappy with the current picture, I will post a new one.
The organization is what really needs to be fixed there as it is a complete
mess. I'm going to establish new categories and a new organization
scheme within each category. That change will probably fall into
place toward the end of the week but it is absolutely going to take place.
I've also updated the RTM archive to reflect
my columns up to the previous month. RTM recently installed a forum
and is looking to grow a community. Head on over to Retrogaming
Times Monthly to read the current issue and check out the forums today!
01/07/2013 Just general
housekeeping as the news pages are rolled over and a 2012 Archive link
is created at the bottom of each news page.
updated to catch up to the previous issue of Retrogaming Times Monthly.
