You did indeed chap. I like that feature, what about a Jamma connection? or a slot that enables a bespoke connection to Jamma?

You mean making it able to connect to a JAMMA cabinet, or allowing a JAMMA PCB to connect to the SFP? There are some options I found, like PiJamma and Project Kajitsu, but I can't think how the SFP fits into this.

Update time: while I'm preparing a website and the presskit for the KS announcement on the 21st of October, I'm also reaching out to a few developers I've admired, like NG:DEV-Team, the guys behind EmulationStation, Shea Silverman of PiPlay, but perhaps you guys have some other developers in mind that may be interested in a console like the STARFORCE PI?

The premise is to dedicate a Kickstarter stretchgoal to new 8/16-bit games, and specifically to one good, solid game we can bundle with the system. If we have one good piece of original work, licensed and supported by a developer, we can show the potential of our system and motivate other people to put some of their work onto the STARFORCE PI. By no means do we expect exclusivity, but we do expect a plug-and-play experience of the game on our console. So! If you have any one in mind, I'd appreciate it immensely.

That will never be happen sadly these guys are determined to stay exclusive to the arcade. I would suggest contacting Duranik and maybe Senile Team, both have created high quality Dreamcast games so you never know.

Skycurser is gorgeous, but they seem to be going into an exclusive direction. Maybe they need someone to design a case for a portable version though... anyway, that is the type of game I would love to have on the SFP. I haven't contacted Duranik and Senile Team yet, but I had them in my list, especially Duranik's Native for Jaguar seems perfect. I like Beats of Rage as well, so both these would be great representations for the system. Well, I'll keep you updated on that, if you have more suggestions, do let me know.

Absolutely brilliant as a video editor myself, this has knocked it out of the ball park, fantastic editing and a great execution on the games, the music, outstanding work fella :113:

Did notice your Lens making a guess appearance panning over the vintage handhelds, but it's a great teaser video, Hollywood would be proud.

And the website is LIVE! Check out http://www.starforcepi.com and see what this little device is all about. I've incorperated many suggestions made here and over at Atariage in improving the upcoming development, and hope this is reflected well in the STARFORCE PI website. But do let me know if there's some errors, if anything is unclear, or if something should be added/removed. Your suggestions have so far been very helpful:
