Ok... I'll be the idiot and ask:

Do you need two copies of the game to play 2 player, or is it like the DS multiplayer games were only one person needed a cart?


Thanks, and beautiful work as always!


2 copies of game are needed. One for each VB.

If people are interested in just the shells, I can send those out too. You'd need to source all your own parts to build the rest of the cable. Once I can get a how-to up on my website to build the cable then I'll start offering just the shells. Give me about a week or so and I'll try to get a page up. Not exactly a DIY kit but if you're willing to do some ground work you can get a cheaper cable made for yourself.

Price will change slightly based on number of units I've ordered but currently they would be $12.50 per connector. You'd need 2 to build a complete cable. Plus shipping as well. Keep in mind that I'm in the U.S. and shipping overseas may cost you more than the connectors.

OK, page up detailing the build. Consider it a draft but I don't expect it to change much. I'll do some grammer/content edits over time.

Interesting read. Makes me appreciate my link cable even more now, as there is no way I have the patience nor the fine motor skills to put one of these together much less dozens. Thanks for your work.

I agree. Reading that made my glad I paid for mine. I would have screwed that up several times if I did it myself. I like to do things myself when I can, but a man has got to know his limits :) Thanks again Kevin!

Pretty much what everyone else said. Seeing just how much work goes into assembling them, makes me appreciate mine even more :)
