I have just repaired both of my Virtual Boys' optical issues and have two copies of Mario tennis and have wanted a link cable for years. First time on the site, read through the many posts and greatly interested

Great.

You won't be able to play via the link cable using an original Mario's Tennis cart though. ;-)

OK.

The link plug will come in 2 halves (the final plug is keyed to fit the port).

It'll just be a case of soldering in the cable and snapping the 2 halves together.

I'm making them completely in-house. 3D-printing the cases and cutting the PCB's on my engraver.

Final plug will be either black or red.

Big thanks to Hedgetrimmer for the case design and Runnerpack for the PCB board idea.

@Minestorm: a cheaper cable than the one existing would interest me. Sadly I can't afford the one made by Mellott124, so another solution would be awesome.

I got my second FlashBoy in the mail today and can confirm that two-player Mario's Tennis works and is fantastic.

OK, all batch 5 cables built. Those cables have been shipped or an email sent requesting more info.

That's 53 link cables so far. Batch 6 cable parts are in and I'll start on those next. At the end of batch 6 there will be 70 link cables in the wild!

Great news, I've never been so excited for a cable that I cant even use right now. Just nice to have with the collection.
