It would be cool if we could make a minimum donation to the person who ported it to the VB, to support future projects. All donors would be awarded the honor of being a recipient of a shared version of the game. I wonder if it matters how the file is shared, weather the medium be a physical cartridge or a digital file.



But reading the above - isn't that the whole point of the public demo? You can play the shared version of the game as a digital file, if you have a Flashboy which I think I saw in another thread you do.

You don't get to play with all characters, but you can see first hand with your own eyes how good the 3D is that way and the crisp display. As for the full game that doesn't fit on the Flashboy, well it's Street Fighter 2, there are many platforms to play it.

Best thing about that is that you're not beholden to a donation if you don't want to, you just need a Flashboy to check it out.

Not to break thread - but I also have a similar story that I discussed with Krisse some years back.

Codemasters (UK developer & publisher) also had a VB that they were working with to create a Micro Machines VB game. I spoke with someone from the team back then that saw this, but it is going back many years and was very early.

Again, this game project didn't get very far, the project was begun and some playable tests created, but cancelled when they felt the hardware didn't really support what they would have loved to do with the game.

I also have a MegaDrive board of a second cancelled project which reached playable status. That project eventually became Micro Maniacs on PlayStation (one).

The VB cancelled game and the MD cancelled game I think were separate entities, but both are adaptations of what a 3D Micro Machines game might have looked like on 2D-based hardware.

It would enable some people to buy them - that understandably steer well clear of the infamous Global shipping Program...

That game looks like Magic Jewellery - one of the Hwang Shinwei games: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_Jewelry

Personally I love the 'Clay Shotting' NRA-endorsed pic :D

Thanks for posting and confirming everything Mawa, it's really appreciated. As I said before, I would offer to buy the loose VB if you didn't find the need to keep it, not sure what was paid in the end but I hope you don't regret the purchase too much if at all.

Nice to have some resolution to this contentious and controversial topic.

What happens from here?

Yeah for sure I'm going to need to get a strap made, drill a hole for headphones and stick some VB stickers on there or something :)

Useful thread for anyone getting one:

I've ordered mine but it'll be a while before it arrives due to Easter.

OK I'm ordering one now seems pretty cheap and worthwhile from what I've read so far. Once it arrives I'll let you know though.

First thing I'm going to try is some VB mock-up screenshots to see what they'd look like.

Another idea I found interesting is - if you have a Bluetooth controller this could make some interesting applications with Game Maker, for someone like me that can mock up little things but not comfortably code on actual hardware.

I suppose you can do all that with Google Cardboard but I never got on so well with it and the flimsy feel.
