I bought a cheap solder iron at Harbor Freight for like $10 and sold solder metal stuff. I've never soldered before tho. It would require heating the old metal to remove the old tabbed battery and then resolder the new tab on the same place?

This happened to me yesterday. I was pissed I played a solid 2.5 hours of Wario Land and got super far but had dinner plans so I had to turn the system off. But I had turned it off a few times that afternoon and it saved fine but when I came back this morning to finish the last few levels it was cleared out. Really sucks!

I took it apart and there is a battery in there. If it removable or for sure soldered in there? I have no experience soldering and am hoping I can just slide in a battery.

Hey, that TV looks pretty darn familiar! I have almost the exact same one. My SNES, N64, PS2, and Laserdisc TV :)


This tv is legit! Tons of hookups and has a sub built in the sound is awesome! This guy posted it on Craiglist and lived 26 mileas away for $20 and he was willing to deliver! Even brought it in the house and set it up for me. An absolute deal! I kind of dislike the widescreen tho vs the normal square as most video games weren't widecreen anyways. Also I found that since this is flat vs curved my light guns on the Dreamcast and Saturn both don't work now :(

My current game setup upstairs (where it's warmer in the winter). In the man cave I have some other stuff setup and more games but I don't go down recently since its too cold haha. Upstairs I have a VB, Jaguar, 3DO, Dreamcast, 2 Japanese Saturns, and a Nuon player

I have never gotten a headache on a VB, just dial it in and it's all good! I will come out a little tired feeling tho, when your face first comes out from the viewfinder.

I boguth a cheap Amazon VR headset to try with my cell phone but that gave me motion sickness and headaches since the lenses will not go far enough apart to get the image to overlap so it is double vision. Pisses me off as I'd love to see how cool the VR really is in color and seems lame the unit will not adjust enough to overlap

I'm pretty sure the answer to your question is no. Once you reflash a new game the save is gone.

I was kind of hoping that the flashboy which implements a save function would actually give it one haha. Ah well.

Question if any of you know, but with a flashboy+ if you save a game or get a high score and then reflesh a different game, but then flash the first game back again does it save the scores or is it erased when a new game is flashed? Sorry that's off topic but I asked that in the Flashboy section and never heard back.

I've been busting my ass all morning playing Mario Clash to get over 100,000 points and was all excited I finally did it. I turned it off and then back on after lunch and NO SAVE! I noticed that in the Games section that was mentioned. Really agree with that page saying how it doesn't motivate you to keep coming back if you can't save or beat your high scores!

I even tried to flash it to the flashbioy+ which supposedly has save features and it doesn't save it either, as soon as you turn the system off the scores go away :(

Such a crappy design for this game! Galactic Pinball saves my games on the regular cartridge!

Whatever the Raspberry Pi uses if I am lazy. Otherwise I just use the real VB system. I've been playing a ton of it lately.
