Site News & Press Releases:
Some more graphics scattered
around the site
In case you didn't notice, there's some more graphics scattered around the site.
There's been a lot of questions about the different graphics available for the
panels and I just tossed up the actual art files rather than trying to take a bunch of
pics and trim them out for the web. The plus side of that is they should give a good
idea about the button placement.
MAME turns 10!
Ten years ago today Nicola Salmoria released MAME 0.1 and started the whole MAME scene.
As part of the whole celebration, the official
MAMEDev site has undergone an overhaul including a wiki and important dates of MAME
development. Stop by and check out what's new. Thanks go out to everyone that
has contributed to the project in the past, present and will contribute in the future!
Back to the Grind
We're back! We've got some new stuff in the works too! We changed some
stuff on the website, let us know if you run
into any issues.
We'll be closed Dec 29th through January 7th.
Child's Play - The Gamers
For those that haven't heard of this charity before, check out the website and help out if you can.
There's over two-dozen hospitals participating this year from around the globe!
Remember, 100% of the donations and gifts are given out. There are zero
administration fees with this charity.
SEIMITSU - Coming Soon!
We've just figured out how to get Seimitsu arcade parts shipped directly to us.
Once we iron out the details in pricing & shipping, you will be able to customize your
panel to your hearts content. If you ever want to see another manufacturers' product
offered, let us know and we'll do our best to
get access to their full product line.

User Review at Xbox Forums
One of our customers has posted their thoughts on the panel they recently purchased.
It's a customized US Fighting Minions
panel with the Xbox
360 cartridge. You can check
out the thread on the xbox forums. Special thanks go out to "Real
Decoy" for taking the time out his busy schedule.
Be sure to drop us a line whenever you see
any reviews/comments on our controllers. We're more than happy to answer any
questions that come up.
We're having issues with getting Seimitsu parts supplied. Expect a longer than
normal turn around for any future panel requests with Seimitsu parts. We'll let you
know what the expected wait is when you contact us with your custom panel request.
We're attempting to establish a "direct" connection, but we need to overcome a
language barrier, currency exchange, and shipping concerns. I personally
apologize for any inconvenience. - Mike
Image Gallery In Progress
We're slowly working on an image gallery.
Check it out for details that are tough to describe in our FAQ.
Xbox 360 Cartridge Change
All the pertinent information is posted on the Xbox
360 cartridge page. A picture of the cartridge is also posted.
Xbox 360 Cartridge Change
We have reimplemented the right and left trigger functions for the Xbox
360 cartridge. We didn't get our delivery of parts we were expecting today, so
more details will be posted tomorrow. All current users of the Xbox 360 cartridge
should have received an email about getting your revised cartridge at no charge. If
you didn't, please contact us. As
always, have your order number handy for quick reference.
In other news, we should be getting more pictures posted to the website soon.
Xbox 360 Cartridge Change
Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Xbox
360 cartridge will no longer support the right and left trigger functions.
(issue resolved! See post above)
Saturn Support, Additional
We've unleashed our "Saturn"
cartridge for the Sega Saturn. We've also got the layouts for each system
available so you can see the button mappings. Just follow the appropriate link under
the "Swappable Cartridge Encoders" section of the directory.
PlayStation Support, Xbox 360
Support, Dreamcast Support
We're happy to say our "PS1&2"
cartridge is ready for the PlayStation One & PS2. We're also done with our "X360"
cartridge for the Xbox 360, and the Sega Dreamcast "Dream"
New Arcade Panel -
Our Combat Minions
arcade panel is now available.
Our first flyer is out!
Our first flyer is complete. It will also
serve as a splash page, but will need to be linked to directly. When you type in
"www.GoPodular.com" you will not
get the splash page.
The Website is Finally UP!
The GOPODULAR! website is up and running. Currently, we are taking orders through
the "BUY NOW" link in the directory tree. Please contact us for ordering information. This
is the first time orders are being taken through a website, so we want to iron out any
bugs prior to receiving any money for our products. We feel this is the best way to
launch the website. That way initial questions can be added to the F.A.Q.
Please let us know about any broken links (shouldn't be any, but you never know) and help
get the word out that we are finally on the web.
I've been delegated the responsibility for our web presence, so I'll handle the email
questions and online ordering. I'm hoping for a 24-48 hour turnaround on emails, but
until I get the the rest of the website together, I *might* need a little extra time.
Our motto is simple: "There will be no compromise".
