Remember us? We’re back with a new double-length Holiday Special episode!
- Games we’ve been playing since the last podcast (a year and a half ago!)
- Fallout 4 extensive discussion.
- The length of movies these days, and how to get them approved for China.
- Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and what kind of conversations the Emperor would have with his Death Star Insurance Agent.
- Why people embrace in-continuity sequels (Star Wars, Creed, Jurassic World, Fury Road) but reject remakes / reboots. Plus discussion on the controversial Ghostbusters remake.
- How the movie industry may be heading for a crash.
- The current state of Nintendo, what we think the upcoming NX console will be, and what we’d rather they make instead.

Thanks to Christ Kraft we now have an easier way to update the America’s Most Haunted pinball machine. This coincides with the holiday release of code version #16!

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.

I finally wrote up a “Making Of” history for our custom pinball machine “America’s Most Haunted” You can read the whole story and watch the embedded videos here.
America’s Most Haunted is currently in production and you can order one for yourself by visiting Spooky Pinball’s website. Enjoy!
We tested the latest code thoroughly at Pinball Expo 2014 and now it’s available for download.

Enjoy! And don’t get too scared by those pesky ghosts!
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!
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!
By now you’ve probably heard of the Hackaday Prize – a contest to create an open and connected “device of the future” with a grand prize of a trip to space.
We recently did a video talking more about the contest along with some ideas and tips for entry. Visit the Ben Heck Show page to check it out!
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!
