USB Link cable

I decided to make a separate thread for the USB link cable.

I just successfully played TicTacToe with my VB using my computer. Sending commands through RealTerm (terminal program) out a USB port to my MCU and then into the VB gamelink port.

Right now it only works if the MCU is master and the VB is slave, or MCU is player 1 and VB is player 2.

I also tested using the linktest.VB ROM that DogP created and can get successful transmissions with MCU as master and VB as slave. See attached image.

Lots of more work to be done but it's a good start. I'm working this project and another one in between wired link cable builds. Can't promise when any of this will be done but I'm working on it.

OK, got the reverse direction working now too. I think I have the solution for over the internet as well using port forwarding software. Doesn't look too difficult.

Otherwise I just need to nicely package up the USB end. The setup requires a Player1/Player2 switch to be set appropriately. I need to design a case as well for the USB end.

We've discussed internet play for a long time now and it's actually becoming a real thing now! This is gonna be amazing, brining VB truly into the future! Do you think this development will boost the collectors market ever more though?
