I have this Foobar2000 Equalizer Preset file on my hard drive. Does this sound any good to the quality you get out of the "cheap tiny speakers"?

We just don't want to get original VB hardware, I just want to replicate the effect in software.

Virtual Boy speaker quality

I've watched a few videos and audio clips of people playing real Virtual Boys. The sound output from the speakers sounded like they were passing through some frequency equalizer or something, rather than the crispy-clear output of emulators.

I'd like to apply that effect to some audio files to see how they would sound, if someone removed the speakers from a VB unit and managed to hook them up to a PC for audio.

What frequency bands should I specify in audio editing programs, such as Audacity, to recreate this quality?

Unfortunately, this is not a "Virtual Boy 2 console".

Maybe I'm missing something, but I did a basic java install from their homepage and then clicked on your latest jar file, selecting any padded or unpadded game and it doesn't do anything but a black box.

I'm kind of curious about this like if I'm missing some setup or button press that's needed.


Press F5 to start the game/ROM.

The Sacred Tech Scroll draft just got updated with details of the VB's hardware timer. http://perfectkiosk.net/stsvb1.html#timer

In the Java program's update, the bindings for the L and R buttons are "E" and "R" respectively.

The 2nd example used on this article explains why the column table is so useful.

For instance, the Wario Land game's intro cutscene actually uses a fade effect on the sides via the column table. Guy Perfect told me about that on Discord when I was still discussing the VIP with him.

There's just one thing missing here in this update: a column table tab.

You guys ever thought the column table of the VIP was useless for graphical effects? Well, nope.

Any news on the emulator? :)

I have a feeling that the project is dead.

My guess is to have a better display that doesn't give headaches. And the sound chip of the VB; it's like they were already having 32 simultaneous background layers for the display, but they didn't really make it sound like a SNES.

Or better yet, they should've let Reflection Tech. skip Nintendo after they skipped Sega, and probably go to different companies. If they didn't like the concept then, they should've just rush out the N64 in an possible attempt to go after the already 64-bit Atari Jaguar console.

MK opened a crowdfunding campaign for his tracker, its respective sound player code, and a brand new VB homebrew game entry. All after more than a year since the "debut" video was uploaded.
