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.

Ben now you are being ridiculous. I actually went back through all your points and wrote a full response outlining why you're incorrect about so many things here - but I have not posted that because it makes you look ridiculous and me also, for responding to your rants in a similar way.

My 'wild claims' are efforts in vain to illustrate and explain to you how sunfading works, as you seem unable to grasp what is really straightforward.

Stop comparing various images to one another to try and prove something that isn't there - you're a VB historian but are misleading readers. You'd said there was even red in the buttons on an image I posted - when (if you actually look at it) I have turned off the magenta and yellow layers so no red is viewable.

You're only seeing what you want to see, and now you're being nasty about it to boot, so I had agreed not to say anymore to avoid any escalation, which is also unpleasant for other members to see, but you still have to run with it. That's really poor.
