Hello Turbo Fans - The Turbo Memoirs (https://www.pcengine-fx.com/TM/) has been updated as of 2.11.08:

- Complete layout overhaul, which now focuses more on the high-quality images rather than the layout
- All images in the Originals Gallery have been re-shot.
- Expanded the Originals Gallery with more film transfers.

Enjoy!

Glad you like guys.  One little blooper in the new homepage image - if you look at the right side of the PCE, there is a hole in the system...that is where I ripped off the RGB mod that was installed on it (I was going to fix that in photoshop but forgot).

I didn't notice that, but I did take note of the extreme graininess and washed out colors.  I'm not sure if I like that particular look, but that's just one clown's opinion.  Now, all you need to do is add a LT to complete the pic.... and a Shuttle..... and a LaserActive..... and never mind.
Due to the short amount of time I had to set up that shot, I had to make it more artsy looking - thus the washed out colors, grain, etc.  I do want to do a true color "on black" studio shot which should look great for the next update.

P.S. - Did you win the auction for the pristine, boxed TurboCD?
Oh no, didn't win it.  It jumped up to over $400 in the last few seconds (my max was $300)...I so much wanted to fight for it more but rather have wanted to win a new DUO for that much....

I gotta say, the work that you've done here is very impressive, PCEngineFX. The shots you have taken are absolutely mind-blowing, at some points, and with great clarity and lighting techniques to boot. It even looks like some of these photos were taking through the same techniques as used for microscopic shots. This updated version is truly amazing O:)!

    The Originals section images look much better the way they are now, rather than the way they were before, at an angle. Before, it looked like you were trying to do an art show type thing or something.
