Dreamcast Support – We have it!

Posted in About Matskat, Custom Sticks, Game News with tags , , , , , , , on November 26, 2010 by Mat$kat

I’m happy to announce that I’ve added Sega Dreamcast Support to my current line of custom joysticks.

Recently there have been strides made in the decryption and understanding of the Dreamcast controller’s data dump. Toodles, who manufactures the PIC-processor based Cthulhu PCBs has introduced a beta version of the Cthulhu firmware, now adding support for our favorite Sega console.

Starting NOW, and into the future : ALL custom sticks that include a multiconsole Cthulhu board WILL work on Dreamcast.

Lizard Lick Amusements- Arcade Parts Supplier

Hey everyone, I just wanted to take a moment to tell you about the company that I buy all my arcade parts from : LIZARDLICK.COM

Lizard Lick is an online retailer of arcade parts and accessories. I’ve been using them exclusively for some time now (almost a year). I’ve had nothing but good experiences when purchasing parts and thought I’d share a little with you.

Lets talk about their selection.

LizardLick stocks ALL the popular brands of arcade parts including joysticks and buttons by Sanwa, Seimitsu, Happ, IL, Suzo and Yenox. Not only do they stock the Most popular models, but also some of the more unique stuff too – such as : Sanwa Mesh-ball ball tops, Seimitsu Skeleton buttons, Yenox leafswitch buttons, the Happ “Perfect-360” digital optical joystick, reproduction Astro City control panels, and more.

LizardLick.com also has you covered if you are completely new to the arcade scene, maybe you’re not even an enthusiast – maybe you just want to buy a pre-made multi-game arcade cabinet or cocktail cabinet. No problem! Lizard Lick stocks several versions of their Multigame Cabinets which come fully working and include the cabinet itself, multigame JAMMA board, joysticks, buttons, wiring, coindoor, monitor, and artwork including light up marquees.

On top of everything, LizardLick also sells specialty controller boards by Toodles. What’s that? Well, Toodles (a member of Shoryuken.com) created a circuit board that successfully emulates Playstation 1 -2- 3, Xbox, Gamecube, Wii, NES, SNES, and TurboGrafx 16 – ALL ON ONE SMALL BOARD. These are the boards that I use in my custom joysticks. They are called “Cthulhu“.  The secret is out!

Recently they have redesigned their site, and it looks fantastic. It’s also worth noting that they dropped the price on some of their most popular joysticks : the Sanwa JLF series and the Seimitsu LS-32 series are  priced at $22.95 and  $17.95 respectively.

SO let’s recap: LizardLick.COM has fantastic selection, great prices, reasonable shipping, and will most likely have exactly what you need. Not to mention they are located in the United States – no long delivery times or insane shipping costs (I always choose USPS Priority Flat Rate and stuff arrives on the third business day after ordering).

What are you waiting for – GO GO GO!
