I also noticed on the backs. Both NFR games have A Silver N. Where as the others have a silver Y and I.

First is Red Alarm. NFR on the Left, with a Silver N. Retail on the Right with a Silver I.

Next is Wario Land. Retail on the Left with a Silver Y. NFR on the Right, again with a an N instead (green).

NFR Cart Differences

I'm curious about the differences between the NFR carts and looking for others input on the differences I have found.

On Red Alarm, the main chip has entirely different writing on it, making it very easy to verify.

Wario Land however the only difference I'm noticing is the battery has a 95-06 date rather than a 95-07 date, this may just be a coincidence, so I'm curious what other people's retail and NFR carts have.

I've attached comparison pictures of both. Both carts I have compared to 2 retail carts I own, the differences were consistent. Both retail Red Alarm's say Toshiba on the chip, the NFR does not. Both retail Wario Lands have the 95-07 date, the NFR does not.

Another possible difference is that both NFR versions have the number 6 on the board versus any other number. Again could just be coincidence. But perhaps a pattern will emerge in the smaller details.


The images on the left are NFR, the right are retail.

Turns out, waste of time. The amp itself sucks balls so no matter what speaker you wire in, it still distorts at the high volume. I mean maybe it overall sounds sliiiightly better, but not really noticeable. I suppose it's an easy project, but I wouldn't say it's worth it unless you wire up a new amp system or something. I wasted more time then usual cause I thought it was a rattle, but eventually I used it while still apart to find it was actually distorting. Trying two other speakers also resulted in the same thing. Guess the whole endeavor turned into just for the name of science.

While I'm leaving the new speaker in, I do not recommend this mod.

I'd recommend grabbing Klonoa if you can find it. It's fun, playable without Japanese reading comprehension, and it makes good use of the Wonderswan's vertical/horizontal orientation switch ability.

Hi! I plan to work on a personal project in regards to Niko-Chan Battle (Faceball) but i wonder why its main page does not list any magazine scan/articles featuring it? It always seemed weird to me, especially since almost every canned Virtual Boy title features them. Anyways, if anybody can show me magazine scans showing the title, i would be extremely grateful! Have a good day everyone!!!

I've been looking into getting a SwanCrystal for months now, just didn't have the money up until about now

I'm half interested for the games, and half, just like with all my hardware, to eventually play music off it (assuming I ever get around to learning what few sound tools exist eheh)
I just need to figure out what kinda games I wanna get..! as someone who doesn't speak Japanese, that is

Definitely fun! Whenever I see those they remind me of E.T.
I mean, I remember playing with one at some kids house in elementary school. At the time, though, I was all like, how is this supposed to win my attention over Nintendo?

That's funny, my plan tonight is to upgrade the speaker in mine to something less.....piezo electric speaker like.

Started collecting a bit recently, something I've been wanting to get into.
