I'm planning to come but nothing is set in stone. Don't believe there is adequate time to grow the Akuma hair back, sorry. I hope to be back to my fighting weight of 185 and not the 205lb fatty I was last time (already at 195).

The guys in the shop think it will be ready in February, so by April they should only have 6-8 more weeks.

In honor of ZapCon V being 8 months away, I am releasing, for a limited time, a fully playable version of ZapCon The Game, a piece of software I put together and put in a custom cab for ZapCon IV.

ZapCon The Game is a tongue-in-cheek homage to both a great event and to the classic games of our youth that are celebrated at the show.

Get the game HERE!

The game uses standard MAME controls. UDLR to move, CRTL for action, 5 to coin up, and 1 to start. The game is single-player only. If you have a horizontal only MAME cab, it works nicely, although you can play it on a horizontal monitor as well. Minimum resolution is 800x600.

There are four basic levels, plus a bonus level if you complete all four tasks. Additionally, there was a ZapCon-only secret level that has been removed from this release, but it was basically a special point-racking bonus level - you had to find it on your own.



Thanks to Neph, Opt2Not, Vigo, HBM, HaRuMaN, and Malenko for QA, playtesting, art, and Idea Manning.

ROFL!  Still love it. When I played it at Zapcon, I didn't notice that the music for that one level was a MIDI arrangement of "Danger Zone".  Freaking awesome!

There's a bunch of little Easter Eggs like that. Glad you like it. I had people tell me it was their favorite thing there. Pretty chuffed by that. And the Best in Show award.

What, of the game?  Going to strip clubs on Sundays? 

I think you guys ought to ask David Foley to be a guest speaker at ZapCon.  Provided you jackals can manage to be respectful I think he could tell an interesting story about good ROMs gone bad and life in white collar prison.  He should be out by then.

Yeah, they really need to organize a bit more.  Maybe group the vendors, a video room with looped movies, etc.  I love the event, Wes and Rachel are great folks, there just needs to be a bit more to it.  They REALLY need to bring another person or two on-board to help.

Having workshops would be super cool. Like a room or 2 dedicated to tips on how to master a particular game...or tips on cabinet restoration. I'd love that.

I've offered to help with programming, but I don't want to be pushy about it. It's out there if they feel they want to go that route. Although they did some videos the first year, but I don't know if they were very popular.

I've offered to help out as well.  I think they feel like ZapCon is their baby and they don't want to lose control by letting other people take over.  Pretty normal feeling, to be honest.

I watched all the movies the first year. I guess i was in the minority.

I have to include "The wife said yes" on next year shirt though, somewhere.

How about a t-shirt that say's "The wife said no, but I went anyway"?  Well, I'll give it serious thought if I get a new job I'm negotiating right now.  If I score the job my immediate reward will be a set of very sweet Oppo 3 headphones for my upcoming birthday.
They R the duksnutz!


No new job, no ZapCon, no headphones.  C'est la vie.
