Interesting 20 min interview with John Carmack with topics ranging from:

- gaming consoles impact on the PC market
- the limitations of using hardware abstraction layer
- opinions on latency (30 vs 60 vs 120hz)

1CC Short for “one-credit completion” or “one-credit clear”

I deleted my QL account on August 6th and since then I have been playing almost exclusively arcade games. Below is a quick list of games I managed to 1CC over the years. Being a purist I never watch superplays or any kind of videos prior to clearing the game myself. I am really interested if there are any shmup players on ESR and whats on your list?

Progear No Arashi
Midnight Wanderers (Three Wonders)
Chariot (Three Wonders)
Pang 3
Snow Bros
Spin Master

I am using Arcade stick (Seimitsu) and Dell 2007wfp (IPS). There are a few tricks that can give you almost perfect 15khz look on a LCD screen. The key words are: prescale, cleanstretch and scanline overlays

Joystick: Seimitsu LS-32
Buttons: Seimitsu PS-14-G-N

I mostly play shmups & 3S so the seimitsu was better choice because of the shorter throw. The case & PCB are from the original stick, 40$ Pro Fighthing Stick.

I had to melt parts of the plastic frame to fit the stick and the button screw-ins :) Removed the goofy artwork and painted the top metal plate matte black.

I currently use this setup on my Desktop & Tablet PC. It took about a month to completely finish customizing my previously nLited Win XP TPC and this is the final result. What can I say, I'm a control freak :)
