ActionMax homebrew

Chris!

Hi, I am preparing to make a homebrew game for the ActionMax video game system:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Action_Max
A major problem is I don't know how many to make. What you'd need in order to play this game is A.) An ActionMax system and B.) A VCR. Although if anyone has an ActionMax system but no VCR, I might make a DVD copy of this if demand (if any) warrants.
The game is a hunting game called "Bubba's Buck Blastin'". Filming is set for late September during my vacation to the coast. There's a really nice forest on the way where I'll stop to take the forest footage. I doubt I'll see any deer, so I'll have to digitally put some in. Although now that I think about it, I don't think I can make the deer move in the game, so maybe I'll make them alien deer. Anyway, from here to the coast is about 60 miles. Anyway, I'm rambling again. The point is, if you have an ActionMax system and want this game, give me a PM or e-mail.

I had a complete action-max set but sold it about 10 years ago or so...

I apreciate the effort and ambition though! Good luck with the project

From what I heard, they are really rare outside the US. And the game Blue Thunder is really hard to get. I have four of the five games, I don't have the Blue Thunder game. Thanks for the good luck. I hope to have it ready in late 2013-early 2014.

Sounds interesting. Hope you keep updating?

Chris!

Well, here's an update: I finally got the blinking lights to work. I made a test DVD and it works with my ActionMax. So now that I know how to make the flashing lights, I can start work on the game. Here is a short YouTube clip of the blinking demo disc in action:

I hope to finish this in May 2014, since 4 of the 5 games were released in May of 1987. I got Blue Thunder, so now I have a complete collection.

The ActionMax game has been completed. I hope to release it later this year, probably this fall.
It's a hunting game called "Bubba's Buck Blastin'".
I made it after I realized the console that only had a gun for a controller had no hunting game in it!

I've begun work on a second ActionMax homebrew called "Fleas Navidad" where you get rid of fleas on Santa's reindeer. I hope to have it ready by December at the latest.
