Mirror Servo Board

Hey,

My VB has a faulty mirror servo board. I have been looking for a replacement for ages and none seem to pop up on ebay or anywhere else.

I am wondering about the feasibility of repairing the one I have. Am I likely to be able to find the ICs on that board or are they likely to be custom? Is there a chance it could be something simple like caps?

Joe

Welcome to PVB! I am a backer of this project and I intend to get more some more in addition to the "package" I picked to cover my homebrew, English translations, FlashBoy+... plus have a few to grow on. I, for one, have never been happy with my VB cart storage options and was thrilled you are making this happen!

As for covers, dig through all the posts and links on the below thread and I think you will get most of what you are looking for (lots of links to other sources for you to sort out):

These are all things that were posted publicly on PVB, so I presume everyone would be cool with you using the stuff they made for this purpose, but it might be cool to PM folks just to be sure.

Which PCB Fab was able to make castellated holes that close together?

My usual fabs (JLPCB, PCBWay, Osh, etc) dont let me have less than 0.6mm.


OSHpark made the prototype boards, and they did require a bit of cleanup. My production fab house for this is actually PCBWay, and they do require some tweaking, but it is doable.

@speedyink: I played the VB for a while today testing out my new games (see below) and didn't notice any glitching so not sure what's up with that, but I'll get the console fixed in due time anyway.
I totally agree about Red Alarm. I had seen footage of the game prior to playing it, and based on that, I thought it was going to be really confusing. It wasn't, when I actually tried it out for myself.


I received a bundle of games (Red Alarm, Panic Bomber, Vertical Force, Golf, Baseball 95, Mario's Tennis, Teleroboxer, Galatic Pinball, V-Tetris and Space Squash) the other day which I got for a really good price. I also got Wario Land from the same seller for an ok price.
-----
It was 1:19 AM local time.
Had I slept at all? I wasn't sure.
It didn't matter though, because I was wide awake now. No time for snoozing.
In approximately three minutes my virtual Boy collection would either grow significantly or remain humble.
1:22 AM. The last minute was upon me.
Tick, tock. Tick, tock.
Soon it was all to be over, and I would either go back to sleep with a smile on my face,
or lay wide awake long into the night, pondering what I could have done different.
10 seconds left. SONIC BOOM! I entered my max bid, and lo and behold--another auction won!

Another day, another night,
some more games won in an exciting fight.
Now--time to sleep. Don't let the bed bugs bite!
-----
Beside the games, I also got the VB headphones via a Dutch game site. The box is in really good shape, as are the headphones.

VB Rom/ Hack List

Hello there community.

As many of you know, about 4 months ago I did an INDIEGOGO campaign to create VB Game Cases. I decided to go ahead with the project. ;) So! These cases should be in my hands in like 30-40 days. I have been working on the Backer's Packages as far as covers go for the cases themselves and I wanted to pick y'alls brains!

I have the easy lists of the released Titles for NTSC and JP games, however, I would like to offer more covers and titles to my site once I have these up there. I have 2-4 other games on the list of covers to be created (Like the Super Mario Bros NES Hack) but I was hoping for a community effort in helping me create a "Wish List" of titles you are wanting to see cases and covers built for. I'm not sure how many Fan Brews and or Hacks are out there, but it sure would be nice to include them as available titles for the game cases. :)

Respectfully,
Jeremy/ Shadowfox

I really liked it. A mysterious vibe, and i caught onto the joke aspects pretty quickly, and though i wont pretend to understand it (even the dadaist ending/meaning/etc) i liked the flavor of the whole thing. It was short enough to play and finish quickly, and it works well. And the graphics are great, especially the void area with the ameoba thing!

Great contribution to the VB homebrew library imho.


It's great to hear that you enjoyed it. I never really thought much about what people would think of the things we put in, but it seems like it left a good impression on you. The VB community as a whole has made me confident that making this game for the VB was the right decision!

Thanks for playing my game!

Super excited for this! I think VirtualBoy is my favorite console I own.

Emailed you back in July but figured I would chuck my reply in here as well.

If you don't want any spoilers but would like to play the padded ROM... Post 19 has it attached. Just log-in, click, scroll (don't read spoilers), and you should be good. =)
