Rise From Your Grave!

I recently obtained one of the auctioned cartridges from the Atari Landfill dig and was able to get it working again with about 2 hours of work.

More info regarding Single Handed Controllers

I have not forgotten about everything asking for these. However I continue to be very busy. Hopefully once we get past our shop move there will be more time to address these before the holidays.

A PS3/PS4 version is not looking likely. Unfortunately those controllers use a type of silk screen circuit that is not easily hackable. We will also be looking into if the older Xbox 360 version is worth continuing, or if we should go next-gen only.

The main goal is doing whatever results in the most controllers being available. All emails are being collected into a folder so we can respond to you once ready – stay tuned!

Site Update

I have recently refreshed my site to a new web server – hopefully this will improve speed and reliability.

The benheck.com Forums have been updated to the latest phpBB as well. We still have registration disabled (bots have become out of control) but it’s a great place to search and find lots of existing info in the meantime.

If you run into a problem, please let me know via email! Thanks and please continue to enjoy the site!

Single Handed Controllers

Thanks everyone for the continued interest in these controllers! I do intend to build more in the near future, I just needed to take a break this summer (and by that I mean “only” work 1 full time job)

My goal is to resume selling them in September in time for the holiday season. A PS4 version may also be possible but the controller is a little harder to work it.

Stay tuned, and thanks for your patience!

Benheck.com Podcast Episode 83

benheck_podcast

We’re back with a new episode of the Ben Heck Dot Com Podcast!

Our main topic today is “Hollywood is Full of Conservatives”. No, we’re not talking about the cast of The Expendables Part 9, rather how everyone in Hollywood is afraid of change, totally scared of taking any risk, and ruining movies in general with endless reboots, remakes and sequels.

We also discuss how this can actively hurt a film, such as the delays affecting Star Wars Episode 7 as a result of relying too heavily on a 71-year-old Han Solo.

We also discuss our E3 reactions, though neither of us had much of a reaction. Enjoy!

Some of the podcasts were done on video (thus, “video podcasts”) and I’ve embedded those on YouTube to save server space.
