New Sanwa JLF Add-On By Paradise Arcade Shop Gives Players Ability To Program Joystick

Paradise Arcade Shop has new technology for the 2014 year.

PARADISE ARCADE SHOP SANWA DENSHI JLF ADD-ON PROTOTYPE SCREENSHOTS

PAS developed a still unnamed add-on to the Sanwa Denshi JLF lever where players can program aspects of the lever including sensitivity, size of cardinals directions and diagonals and more. All of the programming can be modified through its dedicated USB port.

As an easy-to-install plugin to the JLF, it replaces the normal gate found on the JLF and players can also remove the stock JLF switches. It will require both a normal JLF harness as well as an additional 5v harness to properly power the accessory.

Still in development phase, the unnamed JLF add-on will be available sometime this year. You can check out screenshots in the link above.

Supercade Closing Down in October

Damien "Damdai" Dallidenas' peer-to-peer-based fighting game program Supercade will be closing this coming October.

"I've spent a lot of money keeping it running over the years, long after I lost interest in the project, and I don't want to do that anymore," he wrote on Supercade's front page. Damdai also mentioned that he will be trying to have someone take over hosting duties before the closure.

Despite the shutdown, Damdai suggested that Supercade players migrate to alternative online programs such as GGPO or the Chinese-based Super Arcade (formerly ArcLive).

Supercade, similar to GGPO, allows players to compete with one another online in multiple fighting games using an arcade emulator. It supported games made for SNK's Neo Geo MVS as well as Capcom's CPS-2 and CPS-3 platforms. In addition to full online support, Supercade features a replay system in which players can download their played matches from the website.

Make sure to enjoy the last weeks of Supercade by downloading and playing!

Lone Wolf: A Talk With Japanese Player OGTY About Playing Killer Instinct & The Upcoming Release In His Homeland

Various Killer Instinct players group together at EVO 2014. OGTY featured in the bottom middle.When it comes to fighting games in Japan, Sony's PlayStation consoles have been the platforms to play and practice on when not in an arcade. Microsoft's Xbox consoles generally haven't been received, or sold, as well as the PlayStation but has its small share of folks including top Street Fighter IV players. For many other fighters, though, developers are more likely to make a game for the PlayStation only. In addition to the console preference, fighting game players in the land of the rising sun tend to engage in games made in their homeland despite efforts of U.S. developers.

There are, however, competitors who make up the minority by playing outside the status quo. Takuma "OGTY" Oguchi is part of that minority. The Japanese player came into recognition following the release of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 as one of the dedicated players in the scene. He would contribute in shaping the once modest scene to something more reputable. Along the way, he would also get hands-on with Injustice. Now with help from a handful of players who were able to import Xbox One consoles, OGTY increased his repertoire to Killer Instinct.
