Who am I?
My name is Mike, but you know me as SmokeMonster. Over the last decade I've delved deep into researching the world of flash carts like EverDrives, dedicating thousands of hours of my time into making it easier to have fun with retro game consoles. I now oversee lots of projects, including the EverDrive Packs Open-Source Lists, Super NT Jailbreak, Sega Genesis VGM-ROM Music Project, and Project Peacock, to name a few. Every project that I've been involved with has been, and always will be, 100% free, however I'm starting this Patreon for my YouTube channel to ask for support from my biggest fans.

Why am I asking for your help?
Last year I made the move to YouTube and I've loved every minute of interacting with my fans and supporters there. I have an endless backlog of ideas for content, but I've come to realize that I need to improve the quality of my videos. Video work requires an immense investment of time, which is something I'm always short on and having your support through Patreon will help free me from other obligations.

What is the SmokeMonster Elite Discord Channel?
Every Patreon supporter receives an invite to the SmokeMonster Elite Discord Channel. SM Elite is an exclusive invitation-only channel. It's a positive community without trolls, with lots of high-level people from the classic gaming world and YouTube. The #1 rule is be excellent to each other. I'm there daily hashing out new ideas and exploring cool new happenings. Come join the fun! There are sub-channels to discuss almost everything: General Gaming, FPGAs, Media, Hobbies, Off-Topic, Pickups and Deals, a Marketplace, and a voice chat.

What will your support make possible?
Your support will allow me to dedicate more time to the YouTube channel, both to improve its quality and to produce more content. I'll be able to release videos more frequently and continue live streaming once a week.

Thank you!!!
Whatever you pledge, I want you to know how much I appreciate your help. Whether it's via Patreon, or just a friendly "thank-you" online, your support makes it all worthwhile! Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions and I'm always glad to help.
Mike
