Fingertips? Looks like fresnel lenses to me. Still probably mobile phone based.

There's a firmware update now available for the batch 1 VB cart programmers. I've emailed the people who purchased a programmer.
This update adds:

1. General bug fixes
2. Update menu with commands that were missing
3. command which is a short erase/program command for faster development
4. User file name selection when saving ROMs or RAM files
5. GSN/SSN commands for setting/getting serial numbers of VB cart programmers.
6. SD ROM file to serial dump command.

The last command on the upgrade list is a serial to SD ROM file write that is still being worked on.

Batch 2 programmers will already have all these updates. The #4 update above is a work around for the Japanese file ROM saves.

I just wanted to reiterate what everyone else has said. This is a great little product and I recommend you get one if you can. I did a video on how to set it up and use it in a basic form. https://youtu.be/nchMOo3Gm2k


Nice video Candice. Laughed when you mentioned the Do-Do story. My son calls anything that looks like a VB Do-Do now. Or he says "Daddy made it".

I'll have a firmware update soon to fix the Japanese character issue when saving Japanese ROMs. A few other updates will be in there for devs as well. Code is nearly complete and I should be able to test this week.

Picture below of latest programmers I've built. They'll go out in the next few weeks to people who ordered. They're waiting for the 128Mbit carts.

Thanks mellott124 for the design and hard work!


Cool! Glad they’ll be available for people.

I've decided to pause this project for now.

All the pieces are there to make a console to play VB games in 3D via Raspberry PI, but I think the support and setup for the average user is going to be too much. The cost is also a bit too high with all the bells and whistles I had planned.

Here are the extension cable models. They'll be updated in the model section here on PlanetVB as well.

They fit well into the Nintendo parts. They fit very tight into each other when printed in FDM. I'm guessing if printed in SLA they'll not be as tight. I'll let other people experiment.

These are the DB pins the models were designed for as well. Both male and female. You'll want to trim the pins a bit. And be careful they can be very very sharp after being cut.

Female: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00E ... age_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Male: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00E ... age_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

And designed for this diameter DB9 cable.

Have fun!

I can get parts to build 5 more if people are interested. Send me a PM.
After that there are no more VB motherboard connectors available.

I've gotten my last two jobs like this. One I worked for 7 years and the second one I'm still at for almost 10 years now. It shows passion outside of work. You can also talk in depth about it. Most job interviews are so boring that it at least changes things up and shows you have a drive beyond just collecting a check.
