LSDJ Showdown 2013 – Prizes – updated

May 29, 2013 in News

Here they are people.

Gameboy mods and other bits

For first place this year, we’re very pleased to bring you a MidiBoy by NeX. It’s an all-yellow fully Midi gameboy with a switchable pitch bend, biverted backlight and flush prosound. If you haven’t seen one of these, then they are about as pimped as a Gameboy can get.

Second prize is a prosound, backlit DMG, ’707′ hand sprayed by myself, Michael Television.

Third place is a clear green Kitsch-Bent case and gold plates and battery springs. Kitsch-Bent silicon start/select buttons, clear DMG buttons, prosound mod and an orange V2 backlight.

Fifth place is a 64MB rewritable EMS cartridge. The top ten all receive a Luftek Micro USB to DMG adapter each. There are seven bundles of stickers, backplates, buttons, and bits & bobs too!

Additionally, I have some other components that’ll get thrown in for good measure. I have a few lovely things kicking around.

Thanks to our sponsors:

USB to DMG power adapters – a reality!

May 10, 2013 in News

“Why hasn’t someone invented USB to DMG power adapters yet, considering it’s the NNth century?” every chip girl and guy has asked themselves.

Well actually, someone did. Luktek, an electrical engineer in Slovenia decided to play about with the DMG and made exactly that recently, offering the adapters for sale on his blog.

USB to DMG

Powering the DMG from an iPad is a nifty trick. Sounds sweet? Well it gets sweet-a-riffic. The greater news is that Luftek has kindly sponsored ten of these: one each for the top ten winners of this years LSDJ Showdown. If you can’t bring yourself to either wait or prove yourself enough to be placed in the top ten for the 2013 Showdown, you can buy them online for $5 a piece with $3 dollars shipping at his online shop.

A big thanks to Skinwalker for bringing it to my attention.

NoiChan LSDJ Showdown – Finalists Announced!

June 5, 2012 in Events, Site News

The first round of scoring in the LSDJ Showdown is over.

This year, we recieved 60 entries. 7 songs were disqualified for being over 10MB. 1 Song was disqualified for being longer than 6 minutes. That left us with 52 viable submissions.

Finalists were chosen by the 4 core staff, meaning Roboctopus, idevourstatic, Mikee Teevee, and Freque. Everyone picked their personal top 10, meaning 40 votes were cast. The finalists consist of every single song that recieved 2 or more votes (coincidentally). These 10 finalists will now be handed off to our esteemed judges, and the winners will be chosen based upon the highest average scores. The top 3 will receive modified gameboys. The other 7 will get nothing but hugs and respect. Staff  votes and runners up will be made public after the actual judges have turned in their scorecards.

Without further ado, here are the finalists (in alphabetical order):

 

AndaruGO – 1937 Durrrrr

Doomsberry – Rings

Dos – Brok3n
