Merry Christmas to all! =)

First, Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year! =)

Holy $%$?! It's been almost 3 months i haven't posted anything here ?! (AArrrgghh!) Time does fly!

I'll try to post something new soon (hoping before 2017...heh!) but in the meantime, here's some new replies to posted comments in the last 3 months:

Hi, sorry if this isn't the right place to ask, but Blogspot is a little unknown to me. Do you know if there's an overlay/underlay for Tomy Tennis that puts in the tennis court and net, and maybe an underlay that puts in the faint inactive LED elements? Thanks!

My reply:

No problem and yes, it is the right place to ask. I was working on an overlay for Tomy Tennis as well as other artwork for the MAME but was busy with jobs and kids so noting has been worked on more than 3 months now.

To for your information, Tomy Tennis is using a VFD display ant not a LED display (an easy error). And here's a screenshot of the Tomy Tennis artwork i was working on (the last time):

It's almost finished as i need to touch-up a bit the overlay in question. be sure i will upload it when it will be finished. Thanks! =)

Wow, I had one of these things when I was a kid. I had forgotten how loud they were. Thanks for bringing back the memories!

I wonder if Chris is related to me?

My reply:

You're welcome! And reliving memories is "magical" in so many ways. Yes the Mego STPB are very loud so that's why i've modified mine (before selling to a great friend collector) with a volume knob.

Oh and i think you'l be happy to read that i'm working on a Mego STPB simulator (actually 15% done) so that anyone will enjoy reliving their memories or making new ones. It's not coding that's takes a lot of time, it's doing the artwork.

Hummm...good question,you should contact Chris to get your answer!
