Information for new visitors (AKA: How does buying a Macro work?)

Hi Everyone!,

I’m not quite sure why, but I’ve had a HUGE influx of traffic over the past few days. It’s been great to see a lot of renewed interest in the Macro and I’m glad a lot of people are out there trying to build their own and/or interested in buying one. The be honest, this site is a bit neglected as I do most of my communication and posts on the Facebook page. I wanted to get a post up to cover some of the main questions I’ve been receiving from people over the past few days 🙂

How do I buy a Macro?

I periodically will sell units as I have the time to build them. Unfortunately my free time is very limited as I have a busy work schedule (which is only made worse by the current pandemic situation). Right now I don’t have any units for sale, but I should have some by late June.

When will you have Macros for sale?

If everything goes according to plan I should be able to finish molding more shells by the end of June. So hopefully late June/early July.

Do you have a Patreon/Kickstarter/etc.

No, I don’t really see a need to do anything like that, as Macros are not my sole source of income and I’m not a content creator. I don’t really have any special incentives for anyone who wants to donate to me. Instead donate to your local animal shelters 😀

How can I stay up to date on progress?

The best way to stay in the loop is to follow the Facebook page and/or sign up for the mailing list!

I do also post on the site, as you can see, but the Facebook page is where I’m the most active!

Can I preorder a Macro?

Unfortunately I do not offer preorders. Since I can’t guarantee turnaround times for builds I don’t feel comfortable taking money and having someone wait for an indefinite amount of time to get their product.

Do you have more Photos of Macros?

Yes! I’ll get a gallery added to this site in the next couple of days, but for now you can view a ton on the facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pg/gbmacro/photos/?tab=album&album_id=633301056805099

etc.

All of that being said, I really appreciate the interest, and I implore everyone to try out building a Macro! I put these tutorials out there five+ years ago to encourage everyone to try their hand at it :). It’s great seeing interest even five years later.

I’ll spend some time this weekend overhauling the site and making it a bit more friendly to new visitors as well. I do also plan on making a video tutorial for both units once I have the time, and exploring some other Macro options (DSi, 3ds, etc). Scroll down for gratuitous pictures of some of my favorite colors!

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions! I’m always around to help: gameboymacro@gmail.com.
