Wow, great stuff! And what a completely awesome cassette design as well. Everything about this is screaming for me to open my wallet but alas I have no money. sad

Favorite songs: "my god fearing family" and "clubsterben"

Thanks! Really appreciate that smile Where can I check out your stuff? I get a pile of folk come up when I search for starfighter, and want to make sure I get the right one.


Today I've put out a new album. It was composed entirely on a single DMG with LSDJ, with a bunch of other synths and effects to add some depth to the sound. More electronica than video game music.

There's a handful of cassette tapes available as well.

Thanks for listening!

Can anybody point out the power LED solder points to use to avoid the heating up problem? I'm not 100% sure on what ones are correct, and it'd be good to sort out a few of my DMGs that get pretty hot before I fry anything. (!)

Hey, I'm sorry to bump this. But did you get an answer on which points to use?
I'm enjoying some time off to look over my trusty old DMG.

I didn't... but I spoke to BennVenn about this, and he didn't seem to think this would work anyway, so I've given up for now!

In the interests of transparency, posting here to note that the package finally arrived today. The DMG looks great, and the paint job is as good as expected - exactly why I bought it in the first place. It's just a shame it was such a pain to get this resolved. Communication was utterly painful, even before the messages that didn't come through in May. Either way, I'm glad that this can finally be put to bed - so won't be checking back on this thread.

He's clearly trying to do *something* to make him look bad.

Nope. I just want the item I paid for back in December 2016.

love how you ignored the last 2 pages of this thread again.

No. My point, which you seem completely blind to, is that I only got a response from Josh (both the first, and second time which didn't appear in Facebook for whatever reason) 4 and 5 months after I bought the item, when I posted here. This should have been resolved way before then.

I'm not replying any longer as there is nothing else to say until the package arrives. I wish I'd never bought the stupid thing in the first place, as it's been nothing but a miserable experience trying to get this resolved.

Ok I did some math, let's put this scam theory to the test.

Sigh. The logic there doesn't make any sense. If it was a scam, the item would obviously never have been real, and so the profit would be 100%. (FWIW, the one I bought wasn't biverted, as I specifically asked about that.)

Again, since you don't seem to be grasping the point: I paid for the item. It never arrived. Josh said he would look into it, and then the communication dried up. I asked multiple times for an update and got pretty much totally brushed off. Only when I replied to this topic did he respond. After that, I didn't hear anything again, and he only replied (which I did not receive for whatever reason), weeks and weeks later - when I posted here again.

After not receiving any item, no refund, and then communication drying up completely, it's perfectly valid to assume that you have been scammed.

As it stands, Josh has finally replied and provided tracking info, so again - as far as I am concerned - this matter is done with so long as the item is legit. You're not doing him any favours by dragging this topic back up over and over and drawing attention to the dispute.

strikethrough doesnt work for some reason

You said I mod, which makes this 'even more sus'. I mod electronics following tutorials. I don't paint. Your logic baffles me.

What exactly am I supposed to be hiding?

Maybe that you're trying to pull one over on josh by deleting messages and making it seem like he isn't communicative? Maybe you're hiding the first gay boy and trying to get a second one out of him? Maybe you're just being a dick? Who knows at this point.

I truly wish I had the time to create an elaborate scheme just to get two painted Game Boys. I mod my own, so don't ever bother buying any from other modders. I just thought that Josh's paint job on that shell was pretty awesome, so decided to give it a punt. Won't be doing so again. smile

you're just repeating yourself, and you're choosing what and what not to respond to at this point. It's clear you're hiding something.

I'm repeating myself because you are making accusations about things that I have already responded to.

Don't worry. I'll video the great unboxing of the package, since apparently images can't be trusted.

I get that's not something you necessarily want to hear but if you hit him up I'm sure he can explain. I don't want to discuss what he may or may not want to be public.

I already did message him, numerous times - across the period of five months, and I was always understanding. It got beyond a joke though. I'm not trying to make anything 'look good'. I paid for something, it never turned up, and despite committing to sorting it out a few times, I still heard nothing back from Josh. When I got pissed off, then the messages apparently stopped appearing, and only then did he do something about it.

I'm sorry if that explanation isn't good enough for you, but it really doesn't matter at this point. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to have gained out of this whole episode. I'd rather not spend my time chasing up someone to send me something I paid for.

Tracking info has been posted. That's the end of story, so long as it actually arrives fine. I don't have any reason to doubt that it will be fine when it does. I just want the item I bought, and I'm annoyed that it's become this big deal. Continually dragging this thread up isn't doing anybody any favours.

He did try to fix the situation. He sent you a second gameboy. If anything that should be signal enough that he has only but the best intentions. He's put more money into this than what he's gotten out.

More than five months after I paid, and only after I repeatedly chased him up for an answer. That's the whole point. Not sure how many times I have to repeat that.

Sigh, make up your mind. One minute I've faked the code in my browser; next minute I've deleted the messages on my phone. Clearly nothing I say is going to be good enough for you. Even if there was an issue with the last few messages, the fact is that Josh did nothing to fix the situation for more than 5 months, and only after I posted on here for the second time.
