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.

I think that's best - I don't want to cause unnecessary embarrassment by going through and picking apart all the inaccuracies, and I don't think the forum is gaining anything from it at this point.

I will say that if someone from here does win the VB - please, please do the right thing and post pics when it arrives :D

Ben I was really hoping you weren't going to react that strongly, as noted, because it is just a box and I made no emotional statement or reaction towards you, even sent you a kind enough PM so you'd be assured there was no strong feeling on my side.

But that aside, your rundown is not quite how colour is set up in printing and it's not how UV fades print colours - I did go into that in my last post and if you really don't believe me you could ask someone in printing, like UncleTusk perhaps.

But in short - red doesn't turn to blue. If it appears blue on the VB box - that's the magenta layer having completely faded, yellow layer also completely faded, then any black and blue layers remaining visible because those inks don't fade as fast.

Black isn't a mixture of all three of those - it's it's own separate channel. This is commonplace printing on packaging - it works like this: https://designschool.canva.com/wp-cont ... design-differences-11.jpg

Something I did to try and help you see this is split the CMYK layers out manually in Photoshop. You can have the image in there as CMYK (screens display in RGB but printing is CMYK) and then subtract the magenta and yellow channels to show what blue is left. The results make it really clear I think.

This isn't me trying to cause any upset - but you couldn't see what I was trying to illustrate with the crisps and this illustrates it much better. When the magenta and yellow fade completely, you are left with blue and black only. The red VB on the box has traces of blue in the shadows and also some black.

You can do this in Photoshop or another good image program if you want to see for yourself. The VidPro thing was a better example than a crisp packet sure - but that's a completely separate image.
