We'll add a communications class to the VUEngine soon, which allows multiplayer matches. It won't matter what talks on the other end of the cable, be it two or more VB's connected locally, or a PC program on the other end that communicates with other VBs over the internet. At least that's how I picture it, Jorge will do the actual implementation of the class.

I REALLY hope we can get online multiplayer to work! It would be amazing to run an online service where you can play any future multiplayer VB games against each other. We'll need to negotiate some standards to make that possible. Besides the VUEngine implementation, there should also be one in libgccvb. I think thunderstruck already worked on getting that done.

PVB sync would be nice, so that cartridges can linked to PVB accounts, highscores can be synced, etc. Then there could be a frontend integrated right in PVB.

It would also be really cool to offer a "spectator mode", where people can watch online matches of others, right on their VBs.

If this is authentic, this is a really exciting find, Robert! Not only it's the first known mention of North American releases of these games, but also even a press release on one of those. Also, "War Simulation"? Could that be Star Seed?

But, ugh, the auction has been deleted before I could save the images and description. It also had images of a Space Squash press release and of the cover. The description mentioned this being from CES 1995. I could only find a tiny thumbnail of the cover through Google image search.

Did anyone save all that?

Also, I am wondering what you guys think about the item. The cover looked pretty authentic to me, the spelling in the press release is horrible, though. :-) This article seems to back its authenticity: http://www.planetvb.com/modules/articles/?s013096001

Heh, I didn't take it that way. I'm just thinking about doing more open source stuff for a while now. I just takes some time to get everything into a proper state.


That's really cool, looking forward to it! That will help a lot with collaborating.

That's the one thing I'm not expert in. I was actually meaning that if you happen to need the source code of any of my projects, happen to have a problem I can assist on or need support in some other way I will be happy to help.


I realized my response may have sounded a bit uppish. That's not how it was meant and I apologize if it came over like that! ❤

Anyway, I am grateful for your offer and I am sure we'll happily get back to it! Amongst other things, but especially on the sound front, there's a lot we can learn from your work. :-)

I heard rumors about that. Just tell me if you need help (other then my money).


Thanks for the offer, Thunder! We're actually pretty much done with everything, just need to clarify the legal aspects in terms of taxes. If you (or anyone else) happens to be an expert in German tax law in regards to crowdfunding, please contact me. ;-)
