Looks like the project got stuck, unfortunately. But someone re-posted the last published build (beta 2.0) here:

Also, is anyone doing any VR development?

I'm a 3d artist, not a developer, but with Unity I got my first simple VR scene working on my CV pretty easy, I find

And of cause the edge connector game cards as well as the adapter itself could also be nicely designed 3d printed collectibles, to gather support for this solution ...

And how about 32 MBit FlashBoys for the "NEXT GEN" Virtual Boy games?

A solution would be for every VB user to have an adaptor. It converts the VB connector into a standard edge connector.


That's an interesting idea. I think, it's actually close to the Flashboy with the difference, that you wouldn't always have to flash over again to change a game and the collectors also would have a nice game cart to collect. I would definetly support that ...

Another idea: CIB-releasing homebrew games on "Special Edition" FlashBoys. So it actually would be a Flshboy+ that you could re-use for other games, but you'll get it with a game pre installed - "FlashBoy+ Zelda Edition" for example. It would come with a nice Zelda box, manual and special cart sticker on the Flashboy. It could also be 3d printed in a certain edition color and with the game title engraved ...

Of cause, you'd still need to harvest game cart connectors for both - Flashboy and edge adapter - but I think it's a step more "sustainable" to produce adapters or more FlashBoys (that are both flexible) instead of locking the connectors to fixed game carts.

So maybe FlashBoy Special Editions could be a compromise too between CIB collecting and saving game connectors ...?
... collectors vs. connectors ...

A Virtual Boy Buying Odyssey - Episode III: "The Netherlands"

After the red turtle had noticed, that it's new VUE machine had glitchy goggles, it crawled to the netherlands to ask an experienced solder-blacksmith for help. He had soldered many hundreds of those goggles before and so a happy end to this odyssey seemed very close. But then - the blacksmith discovered a very rare problem with one of the goggles, he had only seen a few times before in his life: three deceased pixels!
Hearing that, a friendly tradesman turned around and said, that coincidentally he has a pair of solder-fixed goggles left to sell!
"Cowabunga!" the red turtle shouted and bought the two goggles together with an other working VUE machine for a very fair price!

Fighting hard for a Virtual Boy, he finally ended up with two working Virtual Boys! Plus a pair of solder-fixed replacement goggles!

THANK YOU SO MUCH, for finally getting my VB working, TheForce81 and mawa!
ALSO THANKS AGAIN to speedyink, thunderstruck, Cosmoliner and all the others posting helpful answers in the forum and in PMs!
And by the way, I also got a discount from the eBay seller of my VB to compensate the repair costs

My advice for everyone searching for a Virtual Boy is: join Planet Virtual Boy! And go to the Netherlands!

Special thanks to KR155E too, who gave me a quick introduction to VBDE! So I was able to figure out how to test my own graphics on the Virtual Boy already!
Also many thanks to Morintari and his litte son, for giving me an introduction to the sprite painting tools Gale and ProMotion!
And of cause to Alfista, who helped boosting my young game collection to another level!
I didn't expect that I would feel home so quickly here - You are an awesome community! Thank You all!

Well, OK - enought honey spilled for now, we have some homebrew to do!

Yes, sounds like a good deal with the blockbuster case. But I'm still new to VB stuff too. I'd like to have the case too, but I decided to make a custom one by myself.

Don't know when You last tried to contact Lovethrash - he's on a move since early february, like the link says ...
http://www.planetvb.com/modules/newbb ... t_id=36171#forumpost36171
Also don't know if You tried more than once - when one's getting many mails, it's happens quickly to miss one ...
Alternatively, RunnerPack repaired displays once, as far as I know. But I don't know if he still does ...

Oh shit! But luckily the people in Your house and even Your Virtual Boy had a guardian angel ;)
First reading I was going to assume, You'll tell us that Your VBs worked again after that fire (see "oven method") ha, ha
If You're located in Europe, TheForce81 is Your man. For the US/Canada You can contact HP Lovethrash.
