Welcome! Not sure about official rules of the board - I would say the only real rule is "don't be a jerk." ;)

Yes, you can post your services - maybe in the Marketplace forum? As for posting pics directly, I would assume you use the "attach file" section below your message.

Looking forward to your contribution to the site!

Interesting Unofficial VB Stuff on Etsy - t-shirts, posters, magnets, repro boxes, etc.

Check it out - 2 pages of stuff, including t-shirts, posters, magnets, repro boxes, and even a repro SI manual. Interestingly, the SI manual's description says "This is the Japanese version. The American translated version is also available." I've written the seller to ask if the translated version looks like the Japanese version, and how to order it.

Kudos to everyone involved. Nice to be able to play this without having to memorize all of the options! Box looks great, and the manual is first-class. Thanks!

Yep - like Waterworld. Not as much fun.

Two-Player Games

Apologies if this has already been discussed, but I was wondering what other released games besides Mario's Tennis have been scrubbed for two-player gameplay. Seems to me that Space Squash was designed with 2-player in mind. As a single-player game, I find it slow and pretty boring. Panic Bomber also seems a natural for 2-player. Baseball, too, but I suspect it would still be a stinker, even head-to-head.

Others that would be fun in 2-player are both bowling games, and maybe golf.

Of course, Waterworld is already 9-player, but that's a bit different!

Thus far, I understand that the only 2-player games are:
- Mario's Tennis
- HF
- Tic Tac Toe
- Snake

It's so subjective. Personally, I'd put Waterworld in the top 5, but I know that makes me a bit of a freak. And as a pinball player, let me tell you just how bad Galactic Pinball is - why couldn't they have made something that resembles real pinball???

Best of the best (in no particular order):
Wario Land
Mario Clash
Red Alarm (lousy graphics, but fun gameplay)
Virtual Bowling (more "professional" than the goofy Nester's Funky Bowling)
Golf (awesome graphics, and some really good gameplay)
Waterworld (it's like a 3D Space Invaders, and the challenge builds at the perfect rate)

Worst of the worst:
Panic Bomber
Space Squash (soooooooo slow - no challenge. If someone unlocks 2 player, could be fun)
Baseball (sprites are too small)
Gundam (incredibly boring - no challenge)
Virtual Lab (looks like someone made it as a junior-high project)
