Recently the Bolt-on Edition for Hyperspin Crew announced on their FaceBook page:-
The project is on hold whilst we are out in the sun Pokemon GO’ing (ok so thats not true!) – but with work commitments, holidays and more going on – our machines we are building alongside the project are on -hold – putting the project on hold, who knows there may be some rainy nights and we might just drop some stuff on you – but with a house move, business moves and lots more going on for us, we’ll officially see you in the winter
Obviously this had some of us who have been following the project in a bit of a panic, so we made contact with the crew and asked if there was more to this, [NiNjA]UK said:-
Each of us have families, work commitments and personal lives – when we started the project we had promises of lots of help and people willing to be on board, as it turned out most of them were false, and they only wanted a ‘piece of the action’ and not get involved – so we whittled it down to 3 of us, 2 very active and 1 working on a MONSTER of a bolt-on, us 2 active members are at a bit of a life cross roads, me personally Im VERY busy with all my businesses, Im moving home, family and have taken on a few other shops and retail units alongside my existing ones – for me, my hobbies, i.e. the Bolt-on for Hyperspin build has to take 2nd place . We dont do this for profit, we literally are building up our own machine with the bolt-ons as we release them for everyone – so they get a good test too! We even pay for a seedbox out of our own pocket for people to get the files from.
We asked if this was the end, or if it really was just a break?
This is NOT the end, I dont do unfinished and my cabinet is far from finished, at the moment there is enough on there to enjoy and play and have some fun with, we WILL return in the winter and no doubt we will smash out the bolt-ons as soon as we do them, we do have the raw roms, emulators and media all ready to go, its a case of compiling, testing and setting up to suit our universal controls – LET ME RE-ITERATE, WE WILL RETURN – ITS NOT OVER YET!
So there you have it straight from the horses mouth, may we wish you all a great bit of ‘free time’ (although it does sound busy!) and we cannot WAIT until this project returns….
