Here, check out "un-du", https://www.un-du.com/How-To.html

I used to use Goo Gone for stickers and the like, and while good, it wasn't perfect. It has a citrus smell I can't stand, and it leaves a residue behind.

un-du is a miracle worker, just check out the clips in the link, and you'll see what I mean.

Hey John, life happens so no big deal on the delays, just glad to hear it's still supposed happening.

Best of luck on the moves and storage, etc. I've done that more than I care to mention, and I'm planning to die at my current home if at all possible, as I'm not looking to move again. LOL

The best I could guess, would be that when the VB bombed here, it was exported to Mexico, as a way of getting rid of unwanted inventory. Think ET and the landfill solution. LOL

They where pretty much giving them away here once it was all over, and to think a place like Mexico grabbed them up for next to nothing, is more than likely what happened. As it was probably pretty good entertainment at the time, where a TV wasn't required, as it was a self contained device.

In the past, when my smart phone is generations old, and no one in the US wants it, I can often sell it to users in other countries(and for rather good prices as well), where it may be more cutting edge, as the latest and greatest hasn't reached there yet. One mans trash, is another mans treasure.

Snatcher is probably my most played adventure game EVER. I've finished it probably 5-7 times over the years. The story, voices, and music are all top notch.

I absolutely hate that Kojima continues to release Metal Gear over and over, with no love at all for one of his greatest titles. With today's technology, I can only imagine how great a reboot would/could be.

Keep up the great work, and hopefully we can see a full release in the future. For sure put me down for a copy, if and when it ever gets to that point of course.

Hi guys/gals, I'm sorry to say I am currently selling my homebrew VB titles, as I've had some rather expensive car repairs happen in the last few weeks, and with the holidays here, I'm selling some stuff to try and get back above water. Here is my listing:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nintendo-Virt ... m-RARE-NEW-/222333550287?

Yeah, I know it's a little on the high side, but I'm just trying to get the most I can in my current situation. Currently I'm not looking to break up the set, but If I'm offered a high enough price on a game, I may do it, but I would rather sale these as a lot.

If any PVB users are interested, please let me know, as I'm more than happy to offer a direct sale to anyone here, to save on fees and pass those savings along to you.

My asking price is also not set in stone, as I do need funds currently, but I'm not desperate(not yet anyway), so keep any offers within reason. Just like some of the Street Fighter listings, I would rather not sale these, as I know I'll never put this set together again, at least not cheaply, so I'm asking a price that I can't turn down.

I think I listed everything correctly, but if anyone notices an error in my information, please let me know and I'll fix it ASAP.

I must say that the duct tape being removed from the toilet paper is by far the most impressive...

I'm not sure if I would actually use toilet paper that had duct tape removed from it... but impressive nonetheless. ;-)


Yeah, that is one of those head scratching moments for sure. I understand they are trying to show the "extremest" of situations, as the duct tape is about the stickiest tape around, and toilet paper is about the most fragile paper around, but as you have stated, who had a need to fix this problem? LOL

A great demonstration though.

I've used it on just about any and everything that was "stick" or "stuck" and needed to be removed from something else. It is a liquid, so if the materials in question are tissue paper thin, you may have a problem. As you can see in the videos, un-du can remove just about anything, from anything.

In regards to gaming uses, I've removed price stickers from shrinkwrap, stickers from the game boxes, and just about everything in-between. No issues personally, but you'll have to gauge usage by your needs, and what may or may not be possible.

I will say, once this stuff hits the adhesive, it becomes undone rather quickly and can be removed with minimal pressure.
