I looked at the pics and even without reading anything, it's obvious it's not on VB: too much colors and shading.

RTI is younger, it was founded in 1985, and The Adventure Vision is another engineer's baby. There surely is a link because the technologies are really close.

The RTI FaxView

Well most of you are aware that the display inside the VB is not the fact of Nintendo, but has been developped by a company named Reflection Tecnology Inc. While I was surfing the web to find some data (I wrote an article in french relating all the VB history, as nobody did it before), I found a curiosity: a seller have ten FaxView, completely new.
One have to know that the FaxView is a personnal device that connects to a phone or a pc to receive and send some faxes. It is the only other device using the red and black display, as RTI closed the gates short after because of the failure of the VB (they had great hope in it).

So there are few FaxView around there, I think most of them have been put to trash since 1997. The item is not directly VB related, apart the fact it uses the same technology, but I was thinking it could be a great addition to a VB-themed collection. Sadly I could not afford one by myself as they do not ship to France.

Anyway, here where you can find it:
https://www.buymebuyme.com/buy/FaxView ... s-Documents-Anywhere.html

If anyone buys one, I'm curious to see some pictures of it since there is nothing on the web.

This thread deserves more views.

Also I've seen these mockups on a pixel art site:

Beware, this website has been made by a consortium interrested in 3D, like Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, DreamWorks Animation (DWA), Sony, Paramount, IMAX, Dolby, Panasonic, MasterImage and others "to advance the creative arts and sciences of stereoscopic 3D". So maybe it's not 100% accurate...

Hi all,

I wonder if making a pad for only one game is madness or love...

You guessed right, it's for Hyper Fighting.

There's a problem about colors, too. GB has 4 shades of grey, wich are transposed to VB quite easily. But a NES has much more than that, and I fear that emulate a colored NES game on VB would result in a loss so important that the games could barely be played at all.
When there is red character on blue background, all two would become red and one couldn't distinguish character from background.

I use a standard EU Nes/Super Nintendo supply to feed my VB. What is strange is that these consoles use 9.5V AC ! And it works fine.

Hi !

First, congratulations ! Appearing in a TV series is a dream few people will realize ! It might be so interresting and exciting !

My job is much more boring and yet I find it really interresting and grateful: I inspect buildings to determine if disabled persons can use it safely and can access all the services. A supermarket, an hospital, a townhouse, a public library, an university, I check if all that sort of buidings are accessible for blind people, or deaf, or those in wheelchairs, etc. Then I make some propositions of improvements when needed. I do this since about a year.
