It is cool to see the support here.
Today I saw the community Cart Dumper the first time here.
Looks solid, should be easy to work with.
What I also saw on that picture was the Flashboard.
Would be interesting to know why it is called "Bound High - 2" on it.

For Nintendo the VB was a failure. I do not think they will release something VB related. If they do, it would be a huge surprise.
Okay they never ignored the VB completely. In some games like Super Smash Bros, Animal Crossing or MiiTomo you get 3D models of the VB. But I doubt they touch the games.
Nintendo directly released only like 8 games. The rest was released by other publishers.
On top of that they see it as a failed system, they probably don't see any reason to write a emulator for just 8 games.
The remaining games would require extra licencing and stuff.
I guess they just don't want to divert any workforce to such a task, otherwise they would have done it already. Afterall the 3DS is the perfect system to (re)present the games with much better playability.
Like Krisse said, the only way we see it on a 3DS we neede to do it ourself. That is also why I pushed so hard for a VB emulator.

@Krisse, that Super Mario Clash 3D seems to be down on his page.

In this picture
Open in new window

the Buildings(?) with the windows, are these the natural boundary of the level?
Also this is just one and the same Sprite repeated right?

Very nice progress here.
Also thank you to that guy who donated a huge sume to keep it running for a few month.
The Patreon also looks quite okay so far.
But it will still going slow there until there is something playble on screen.
People from GBATemp for example are mostly not very interested in deep technicial information. They only want to knew as much as what is needed to hack your system to play emulators or roms. They don't care about Worlds or VIP functions.
Most of them were babys or not born when the VB was available.
So they only act upon sensation and on what they can see and touch.
It will propably take a bit more time before patreon brings in money more frequently.

That is a nice find and creates hope for other still unreleased games. So far all games which got presented on a trade show back then ended up on one of this cardrige sized flash boards.
Nintendo always tried to use final looking hardware on tradeshows.
So if for example Dragon Hopper or Zero Racers was playble on a Tradeshow at one point, chances are high that more of this stuff has survived.
Also it is more unlikely that such stuff leaks from Nintendo directly. Stuff from Tradshows or game journalists are more likely.
Chances however to see that surfaced are slim or it takes some time. The last VB prototype game before this BH Board was quite some time back.
A lot of VB related Material located in japan and I heard several times that they have some very obscure collectors who would never part with stuff. They do not even want that somebody knows what they have. Makes no sense to me.
Some do not even consider preservation which is highly stupid when it comes to games on Disk, flash from that time or Eproms.

Regarding Bound High itself. Will be interesting to see how the roms will compare. Gamewise it will propably the same but maybe the rom contains some unused materials or so.

VB Sound Problem

I am finally back in the Virtual Boy business.
Got myself a japanese system and also a spare head unit.

This head unit has problems with the Sound. The left speaker does not work. I opened the VB to check for loose cables or so but that was all fine. The speaker itself is also okay.
It seems there is a problem with the AMP board.
Is this a common problem? Old Caps?
