Well, the Amiga CD32 seems to have packed up. Not going to replace it, not worth it.
The CD-i seems to be playing up a bit, will investigate a bit more.
Neither of these systems are important, one game only for a system of interest is hardly a compelling argument to have the space needed in a system for it.
Nothing wrong with the PS2 and GameCube parts of the system in here, however due to above issues now, I intend to remove the console systems from the unit and remake the sections again. It is a backwards step however makes sense.
When I first started this project I figured i'd covered all the systems apart from Vectrex and Virtualboy; however of course this was wrong, there is the Pipin, 3DO, other failed systems too; so in hindsight, putting in two failed systems in there for one game each (CD32 and CD-i) is a bit of a waste.
Finding it hard to get back into the mindset for this system, i've forgotten most of the tricks and techniques i'd used before in this system, so probably a good idea to strip the system back to basic components and remake them, although obviously i'll keep the switches section as is, no benefit changing that and it wasn't easy to get that all worked out in the first place!
So what this means in reality, is I can't afford to deviate from this project now, once I get into remembering how the puzzle all slots together I don't want to forget it all again!
So, here's where the system stands and where it will stand:
Already made and working
GBA via GameCube player
(PS1 games via PS2)
No longer part of the gameplan
To incorporate (pending)
NES (already made)
Intellivision (already made)
SMS (have to make again, old one fried)
Atari 7800 (which plays Atari 2600 carts)
That's 19 systems included (the GBA is via original hardware as Nintendo product on GC hardware, PS1 on PS2 is obviously original hardware, Atari 2600 on 7800); 16 unique consoles giving 19 formats. Was going to be 21 when started this, so hey, if ends up around 19, that's no issue.
Anyway, means i'll have to take 2 steps back to make two separate steps forward, before can move forward on this project; such is life. At least the main systems work fine, it's the two expendible vintage CD systems that are the ones being flaky.
Another reason of course to remake the main system again is by removing the CD-i and CD32 i'll have to change the order things are in the casing too, and spaces.
