Yeah, just checked out the gameplay of RTCW, and It's looking a little dated, not sure I enjoyed it all that much back then either so I might not worry about it.

Black mesa sounds cool.  Tried HL2, couldn't really get into it.

Picked up The Curse of Monkey Island for $1 at a garage sale today.

I keep meaning to go back and finish Blue Shift and Opposing force.  I should go back and finish RTCW.

Going from human soldiers to mutants of any kind in the same game instantly screams "We're going to ramp up the difficulty like you wouldn't believe!", and implies the difficulty curve is going to go logarithmic, if not exponential.

One of the Wolfenstein games did exactly that.  Actually, they probably all do, but it started out fairly bog standard and all a sudden (probably about half, 3/4 the way in) I was getting jumped by a random levitating armored robot zombie that depleted all my ammo.  Can't remember which Wolfenstein it was, may have been that reboot back in the early 2000's.

I have zero mojo atm.  This was a couple of weeks ago, it's much worse now.

The Brotherhood of Steel is NICE. Those knobs are amazing.

Thanks, just a bunch of cheapies off Wish.

I tend to build at the utility level so I don't feel bad if it gets beat up but it's so inspiring to see the talent that takes it to the next level.

My guts are not as good as the outsides though.  I tend to rush at the end in order to get them finished.

That lightspeed is making me super jealous. Nice work!

It's on my board, very useful pedal.  The LEDs aren't square though and the guts are a mess but that's a symptom of the enclosure size.

Be proud and happy with what you achieved, lots of clever and beautiful stuff there!

Thanks, I can definitely see the improvement over the years too.

I used Mictestor's RCC in my Random Stranger bass multi.  Seems to work ok.

I would call them functional.  I'm not a fan of the spacey type things, but the digital and tape delays do what they say.

Arcadiator - Just your bog standard Arcadiator.  I like the artwork, but this is not a pedal I need to have on my pedalboard, unless I write a song around it specifically.

Dangerzone (OCD) - A friend saw my Dangerzone and wanted an OCD with the same artwork.  Easy enough.  Not a fan of the OCD.  Just sounds flabby with my gear (and I've tried a couple of revisions).

Godzilla - RF Drive into a Big British Distortion.  A friend gave me these pcbs that he'd designed, so I finally got around to boxing them both.  The boost only works with the BBD.  The RF drive is basically a Zendrive, and the BBD is a cascaded plexi MIAB thing.

I think that's about it.  I'll update this if anything else gets done.

Willy.

Cont.

Brotherhood of Steel - Pedalpcb Brown Betty with switchable gain pot and klon buffer to kill the squeal.  This is the second BEOD style drive I've boxed (and I have another 2 lying around waiting for a box), and I just can't get into it as a drive, as much as I'd like to.

Superjudge Plus - Superjudge on vero with a buffer and LPB1 in front of it.  I really like the SJ, but I wish it had just a bit more saturation to it or something.  This is great though, it never goes over the top gain wise.

Dangerzone - Madbean Dangerzone.  A single effect pot mounted build was a revelation after some of the other things I've built.  Not a massive fan of it, but it's ok.

Megatron TMK 2601 - 3x Octagon FV-1 boards with custom EEPROMs and switches to access the onboard effects.  I don't like the chorus as much as, say, the Porkbarrel, but, I can't complain about the utility of this box.  Except there's no tap for the delays.

Naughtyfish - Madbean Naughtyfish.  A dud tl072 stopped this from working for a while until I worked out what the issue was (with the help of this forum).  I like this a lot on guitar, it's probably not as much fun as a Bassballs on bass though.

It's probably a bit early, but with the announcement of the BOTY comp, plus the fact I probably won't finish anything else for the year I thought I would put up my completed builds for 2018.  I have no idea which one is going into the BOTB comp.

In no particular order:

Reactor - Baja's JVM410 on vero, with added eq on the crunch and OD channels.  Couldn't believe that it fired up first time.  I put this down to gluing the layout to the top of the vero.  Four footswitches is fairly tight, but it works.  If I was to build this again, I'd use a global eq as there's some sort of interaction between the two when they get summed to a single output.  Might be able to get around this with some switching hooha, but I'm not revisiting this one ever.

Beastmode - Switches between Zulu99's Mudflap Triple Wreck, and a Superjudge.  The boost on the Mudflap is a modified TS, and is before both drives.  There's also a gate after the Mudflap.  There's also a splitter to power the eyes, and a buffer after that as the Superjudge loves a buffer and the 1 knob gate doesn't work without one.

Genuine Fake - this was a rebox of Razorback that I gifted to a friend.  Long story, but it's inspired by a fake YJM strat I found for that friend.

Lightspeed - Afterlife comp and a Minitaur Klon in a 125b.  Great little box actually, and it sits after my drives as I really like the effect of comp post, as opposed to pre.  Very, very, very messy and tight build.

Tiger Drive - Crunchbox and Mimik in a BB, as a gift to a friend's 10yo son who has been taking to guitar like a duck to water.

So, what enclosure are you going with?  I'd love to build a flyrig of some sort, but the looper enclosures aren't deep enough for my liking.  I've looked (briefly, shallowly) at cable channel, but what's stuff you've got in the last photo?

If you're looking for names, I would probably call it the Acoustibeast.  But that's just me.

If it's not board mounted, I stick the vero/pcb to the enclosures or pots with double sided foam tape.

I'll gladly buy one of those DBD 1590a boards off you!
