Hey Everyone!
It's been a while since I was last here. I blew the dust off my Virtual Boy and went to see if anything new has came out since I last got my FlashBoy+ and I'm super excited to see that Faceball and Bound High as well as a few translations have came out! I'd like to make my own carts for my collection. I already have the donor carts and can order the chips soon. I'm looking to buy some blank PCBs i can populate the chips onto and the pin connectors and stick into a shell and play. If anyone has these for sale let me know, or even if someone has some files I could use to have OSHpark make some PCBs let me know. I'm willing to buy either (as long as not super expensive) I'm looking for 10

Thanks!
~John


(pretty much I want to do this http://www.mellottsvrpage.com/index.php/virtual-boy-cartridges/ but need the PCBs, I contacted Kevin (from that site) and he has no spare PCBs to sell and wont share the files, which is understandable)

that link was an interesting read about something i wasn't aware of. thank you for that. i think that solves the mystery of the eBay "reproduction" carts, at least for me.

Big Thanks to MineStorm! His PCBs have arrived and I was able to populate the needed chips and they work great!! Now I got 11 of the best homebrew/japan imports/translations on a playable cart! Couldn't have done this without him! (even got a couple extra PCB's incase Dragon Hopper ever gets a dump, hope hope hope)

I got the shells and labels. I just gotta remove the old labels, right now those are 11 Mario tennis looking carts.
I may be interested in making repos but it would have to be a team effort between minestorm and I. He has the pcbs. Then it would be a matter of finding donors. I dunno. Maybe
