The selling visibility is great, but eBay's final value fees kill any sort of extra profit one may be able to get from selling there. You'd be better off listing it here and on other forums.

Street Fighter fans are nuts, Capcom too it seems.

Not anymore? Last I heard a donor for the connector was needed.

Well I ended up buying a different VB item so I can't afford a FBP at the moment, sorry.

I'm probably not "long-standing" but I'd enjoy a loose copy of Hyper Fighting if given the opportunity to buy one. If not then eventually a Flash Boy Plus would be sweet.

You've got a buyer right here if you'd be ok shipping to Canada. What were you looking to get for yours?

I've been meaning to get a Flash Boy Plus, but a donor cart is required and the only spare I have is Galactic Pinball, feels wrong to let one of those die.

I prefer to angle the VB forward so that the displays are facing upwards. Then I just lean forward and rest my hands with controller on the table in front of the VB. This is bar none the most comfortable method. One of these days I need to get a picture for visual reference.

Hi, I have a full set of USA released Virtual Boy games, including the 2 distribution "Not For Resale" demos in my collection. I know the ROMs already exist and are easy to find on the Internet. US federal copyright law allows you to make back copies of media you own. Technically in order for backup copies to be legal, you need to make the backup copy yourself, not download them. So I'd like to do that if possible. Plus, I just think it would be fun dumping the games to ROM format and learning how that process works.

So my question is - how can I dump a Virtual Boy game I own to ROM format to back it up on my computer? Are there any known or recommended methods, and what hardware should I own in order to do this?

Thanks for any help or insight you may provide.


Just so you know, assuming the dumps in question are bit-for-bit accurate and no copier headers are involved, there's no technical or legal difference between backups you make or ones you download off the internet.

I only just realized there's no actual WonderSwan thread around here. I always kinda just assumed that it being another Gunpei Yokoi product, it'd be discussed here too.

I'm getting a WonderSwan Color sent in the mail. For the longest I've never given this console a thought, but some of the games look fun and it seems like a really inexpensive console to get into, unlike the Neo Geo Pocket Color.

Does anyone here know of a decent WonderSwan site like this one? I'd love to see what all the console bundles were, along with a more visual listing of all the games.

The US SNES uses a custom DC barrel jack connector. It'd be a lot easier to simply use a SFC AC adapter, or something compatible with it (Famicom, Genesis, Master System, JPN Virtual Boy etc).

I haven't made such an adapter because I think the VB controller is plenty good on its own. In fact, I'd rather see the VB controller on other consoles.

It exists, but surprisingly reproductions don't seem to be out there.


I tested that Elite ROM in Nestopia and on the Everdrive FC. Although the header says NTSC and the opening crawl says "NTSC Emulation", it's still basically the PAL version, complete with partially off-screen visuals and graphical corruption. That's probably why nobody's made reproductions with it.
