since this cable has to hook up to a computer could we have 6 ft of cable?


It's a 6' cable now. Extensions should work too.

OK, finally got back to this. Got the board up and running and I'm switching back and forth between player 1 (master) and player 2 (slave) modes via a terminal program on the PC. Streaming data to/from a VB running DogP link cable test code on a Flashboy+, and my PC. Still some kinks to work out but getting closer to putting two VBs on the network to see what the games do.

There's two LEDs on the board. One of them glows red or blue depending on whether you're player 1 or player 2. The other LED pulses amber if a byte is coming from the VB to the board, or it pulses green if a byte is being sent from the board to the VB. Those will stick through the connector housing to give you an idea of what's going on with the USB link cable.

I'll need to spin the board to make some assembly updates and fix a connector flip (doh!).

Levine91 contacted me over at Atari Age to discuss if I could have the cartridge shells re-made. Its something I am pretty familiar with and should be able to accomplish. I will keep you all informed about my progress. Won't be until likely January that they would be done.


Great news! We really need it, especially with new games on the way.

He's done this stuff before and he has contacts in China.


I did contact a few of the Nintendo sites that have molded cases. Got a few responses that VB interest wasn't high enough to make them want to do it. Are you going to contact this guy?

this will have to be the future of this community. we can not use donors forever. i really like these and would like to try a few with my 1-off carts if they ever become available.


If anyone in the group has a Formlabs form2 printer, or access to one, that would help quite a bit. I need to check that I have permission to post the cart design files. Then anyone could have them printed. But like I mentioned $8 is the material cost. A vendor will add profit to that and then add labor and machine costs.

I had cart printed with dust cover and the VB connector and it was just under $100. We need access to a machine that we can use for free and just pay material costs. Then it might be worth it.

Not carbon fiber but Formlabs Tough Resin SLA. All the features come out and it looks quite good. Came out a bit flexible which I read is not correct and due to them over curing or washing the resin. Going to try to get another print done but this is the best I've seen in 3D print cases so far. Color is fixed in blue unfortunately. These would be too expensive to have a company print but if you have a Formlabs printer then its only $8 in material for the top and bottom case covers.

That looks fantastic!!

I noticed the link you had for the replacement tripod mount is no longer available. Is there any alternatives you recommend or possibly another link for the same item?

Thanks!


Interesting. Maybe he stopped making them?

Here is his eBay email: chuppe_ir6158pafx@members.ebay.com
