Now that registration is complete, the Annual Bitbuilt Summer Contest is officially open! This is the Third Annual Summer Contest, and every year the entries get better and better, as the Contestants really bring their all. So far GMan has been the winner the past 2 Contests. Do you have what it takes to dethrone him?
Most people spend their summers having fun in the sun, but skin cancer is a serious issue. To remedy this, BitBuilt is launching the 2018 Summer Building Contest, promoting soldering burns over sunburns! Seriously though, this contest is for everyone, noobs and veterans alike, to perform the coolest hardware mod they can. The contest is officially open for registration, so head on over to the forums and get registered! Registration is a simple account upgrade that can be purchased for a fee of $2 by following this guide. Registration closes on May 11th, so be sure to get registered as soon as possible.
The winners will be chosen through voting by the community on three different categories: case design/aesthetics, cleanliness of internals, and build features. The deadline to complete your build is also later than last year, this time in mid-august, so everyone will have more time to complete their builds. More information on deadlines and the rest of the contest can be found here.
Good luck to everyone! We hope to see you in the contest too.
For the second year straight, the BitBuilt collective will have an event set up at the Midwest Gaming Classic, a plethora of mods, portables, 3D prints, romhacks, memes, and more! With the first year in the larger location at the Wisconsin Center in Downtown Milwaukee Wisconsin, expect more hacks than you could shake a pig at!
Happy Hogidays from the Bitbuilt collective. Once again, Hark the heralded modders sing. As we wind down 2017: The Year of the Pig, we take a look at our
ghosts mods of Christmas Past, Present, and of course the Future which is also, coincidently, The Year of the Pig. Buy me BoneStorm or go to Hell.
Spring is here and so is the Midwest Gaming Classic! Located in Brookfield Wisconsin just outside of Milwaukee, the Midwest Gaming Classic (MGC) is an all encompassing video game enthusiast event catering to you, the gamer. Hundreds of Arcade Machines/Pinballs set to freeplay, nearly every console in existence on display (even the SNES Playstation!), industry speakers, podcasts, indie developers, videogame-centric bands, and a large Vending area are what is available for your pleasure all weekend, with the Hotel packed to the Brim with very nook and cranny devoted to Video Games. The best part? Bitbuilt will be there, as part of the Benheck Experience!
The Bitbuilt Summer Contest returns for another year for more mods, projects, friendly competition, and prizes! From March 18 to July 28th, the contest will be open to any and all Bitbuilt users and projects, either at a $2 entry fee or FREE Admission if you have purchased something from the BB Store. Grab your soldering irons and give it your best for this years epic build-off!
Tis the season, and a Merry Wiimas to all. Figgy Pudding is out and Wii Mods are in. Toss a Gamecube in the fire and gather around the Bitbuilt Tree for what Pizza Claus and his modding elves have brought for all this year; a sneak preview on what is in store for the modding community for 2017.
We’ve officially launched the store! In our first batch of products we are featuring replacement parts and user created boards for numerous console mods. Check it out by clicking the Store button in the forums, or at store.bitbuilt.net
