I played the demo for quite a while last night. The game certainly is an incredible feat. It looks so good, the 3D is wonderful. It also plays just like the original, and I was surprised how many stages I was able to play in the demo. This game brings back all those feelings of wonder, and shows the true potential of the Virtual Boy. Wow, to think what could have been!

I want this game even more now :)


Honestly, I think the true potential of the VB would be expressed in a fully polygonal game like Star Fox, or something that uses the dual D-pads in a unique way (3D Tetris) or really utilizes the stereoscopic 3D. Hyper Fighting is nice, but I don't think it completely hits those criteria. That's just my opinion of the VB's hardware though. Someone might consider the VB more like a more powerful red SNES. In that case, I would say Hyper Fighting is a good showcase of power. In some ways, I think it's a better port than Street Fighter 2 on SNES.

You're not the first to want Hyper Fighting. We even have someone with a "WTB: Hyper Fighting" thread over in the Marketplace. Maybe someone will post a copy here at a community price. You could also save up and buy one at the going rate. Just be patient, you never know what might float by.

Lovethrash, please don't kill a Capture Cassette for an Everdrive 64 shell. 64DD anything is very rare. You should also be aware there's no way you'd be able to use the Capture Cassette using the Everdrive 64 method, they both use the cartridge slot.


Once I've set my mind on killing a rare gaming accessory, the excitement is too much to go back on :). Actually I'm not TOTALLY set on doing it. I know that a cheaper option is to get some crummy game in a black shell, strip the labels off and make another N64 logo for the front. It depends on how much modding is needed for either shell. If I could do this without external cutting, the capture cart would just look more official. I'm also not opposed to hard-wiring the Everdrive inside the system for a super low-profile look.

Speaking of 64DD, I just scored one finally! Got a great deal on a complete in box Randnet starter kit :). It should arrive in the next week or so. I plan on ordering that Doshin game and some of the Mario creative suites since they all sound fun.

Which of those Mario titles would you recommend?


Seeing how Recruit made the Modem cartridge and keyboard, I wouldn't be surprised if they (or Alps) made the capture cartridge too, rather than Nintendo. Given how different those cartridges look, it's possible they have different PCB mounting inside. When I get my copy of Mario Artist: Talent Studio in, I'll investigate the capture cartridge and see if it would accept a game PCB. I doubt it though.

I cringed when you said you'd consider hardwiring the everdrive into an N64...

Did you win that recent Randnet starter kit that appeared on Yamatoku? Definitely a nice price. Technically it was a better deal than 350 EUR on my loose 64DD, but I don't care one bit for boxes, I'm happier to be without it.

Given how few games there are for the 64DD, I recommend you obtain every game that is cheap.

Buy these:

Doshin the Giant 1 ($50 - $70)
F-Zero X Expansion Kit ($70 - $100)
Mario Artist: Paint Studio ($40 - $60)
Mario Artist: Talent Studio ($40 - $60)
Mario Artist: Polygon Studio ($40 - $60)
Mario Artist: Communication Kit ($30)
SimCity 64 ($40 - $60)

Maybe not the communication kit, it's apparently just for moving content between the other Mario Artist games and the Randnet service which has been dead for the past 15 years.

Avoid these:

Doshin the Giant 2 ($500+)
Japan Pro Golf Tour 64 ($500+)
Randnet disk ($30 - $50)

The Randnet disk in particular is not a game, it was just the client program for logging onto the online Randnet service.

70 copies? For aftermarket releases that's nothing to sneeze at, but when there's hundreds - maybe thousands - of people fighting for those 70 copies, most of which are unavailable, it's easy to see how the price shot up so much.

It is definitely a really amazing game, both in a programming effort and in hardware as well. It's the only 32Mbit Virtual Boy game, it even saves your data. The PCB inside is pretty neat.

Looks like what happens when you try to do the solder ball method of reflowing, but without any flux whatsoever.

Yes, I really did purchase a 64DD console, so far I have SimCity 64 and Doshin the Giant 1, just watching for additional disks to appear. Of the 10 disks, I just want 6 or 7, depends if Mario Artist: Communication Kit any good. I never thought I'd spend so much on a console. Oh well, it was my only other big want (the other was Neo-Geo).

Even if I had heard before hand that the Everdrive 64 supported 64DD ROMs, I'd be very skeptical of how complete the support is, even just going by the accessories used by 64DD games. I'm the kind of person to want the real deal, even if it's kind of expensive.

I've been thinking of buying a 64DD, I'm really missing 64DD.net now, it was a great resource. I haven't found a 64DD info source that's comparable. Archive.org has backups of 64DD.net but they are often broken, missing various pages.

Anyone here into 64DD? Know of good sites on it? I suppose on one hand there isn't much to say about it, but I hate waiting, I like to read while I pass the time.

Sadly, I don't think the VB will ever stop being hated.

View Master Virtual Reality? I think that is definitely a nod to the Virtual Boy. There's no way that's a coincidence.

I thought the demo version only works on the Flash Boy, which isn't that commonly owned it seems.

I do notice that a lot though, people get the name wrong all the time. It's not Hyper Fighter, it's not Street Fighter II (the game yes, packaging and title screen no), it's just Hyper Fighting.

Seeing how NWC Grey has been selling for over $10k lately, I'd be very suspicious of a craigslist posting. Odds are very good those are just stolen pictures.
