Old-school gamer. I started gaming with the Atari 2600. I became an addict with the arcade release of Street Fighter II at my college. The SNES release pushed me into buying that system and a lame arcade stick. I haven't looked back since then. I still consider the 16-bit to be the Golden Age of gaming. The current generation is keeping me pretty happy, especially with the fighting game renaissance that's happening lately. And, yes, I'm old.

It's a good news, bad news sort of story. I finished the HRAP3 modding project tonight... but not as hoped. I received my new pimped-out clear cyan ball top today. The art was ready, the plan was in place and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist was on in the background. I spent about 2 hours today trying to make the mod work.

Here's what it looked like upon completion:

Pretty sweet, huh? Well, I burned through 5 copies of the art to reach this stage. I was pretty happy with the results. And then I started to tighten the screws and the art started to bulge out. The template I used was not quite perfect and my plan was also imperfect it seems.For a few glorious moments I was very proud of this achievement but it was not to be. I had to accept that this will not work the way I planned and so I removed the art. I'm defeated for now but I still have one copy of artwork left and I'll try again after doing dome more research.

Here's how the stick looks now:

Still good but not quite as Mega.
