Speaking of 3D Tetris, I used to have this game on my DOS PC as a kid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTkxmE2AAoo

The Square Tube 3D screenshots instantly reminded me of this.

Wow, that's neat, if somewhat impractical. I guess shoulder buttons weren't really a thing back then; they would have made more sense than the B and A in the middle since that would allow you to use both D-pads and both buttons all at the same time.

That is brilliant. Wonder if it was designed like that on purpose...?

This thread is also very broken. Empty thread title, things lined out weird. I get the feeling these issues are just temporary.

Wow, I can't believe I missed all this talk about sound and music engines. And you say it's tracker-based? That's awesome, trackers are totally what I use already to make music! (If you need any feedback on the GUI design, I'll be on the ready. )

Looking forward to it seeing it!

That was an interesting read. I was kinda hoping for some ARM-specific details, like possible hurdles because of the difference in the different CPU instruction sets, or nice speed-ups because of matches in the instruction sets.

But, well, now I understand what recompilation really does just a little bit better. And heck, the Wii can do Virtual Boy emulation at a good speed, and as I understand it the 3DS is more powerful than the Wii, so that leaves some leeway to be able to handle two screens too.

For the past few days the site had occasionally been acting up for me, too - usually in the form of the site simply showing me a 500 server error with the picture of a VB doing a >_< face. That's normally indicative of something being temporarily wrong with the site, not your ISP, and sure enough it's working just fine now. I've seen a "database connect error" a few times too, which is also obviously a server error, not a client one.

But if the site isn't loading at all and showing your browser's default "This webpage is not available" or "can't connect to server" messages, then something is wrong between your system and the site, yes.

My less supporting friends said it was a sign that VB is bad for me

Sounds like some kinda joke to me? There isn't any kind of strange addition factor to this site, now is there? Just a friendly community of enthusiasts. o_O

EDIT: OH, I get it. I thought they said Planet VB is bad for you. Haha. But yeah, there's no way a VB is going to be worse for you than any other game system out there. What are we supposed to imagine with "bad for you" anyway?

I don't know why, but that link isn't displaying any pictures for me in Chrome. Luckily there's a zip of the files at http://www.planetvb.com/modules/games/?u022i

Though there are a lot of typos in the Japanese transcription (like かてきる which should be ができる), it still helps a lot since it makes the kanji characters easy to look up.

Is anyone working on this yet? Otherwise, I'm giving it a look-through now. It's fairly complex for me since there's a lot of unfamiliar kanji though, so if someone else is already working on it, that might be preferable.

It's legit. Smea posted about it on their Twitter. It's also really cool.
