That's awesome, finally fully custom made carts are possible! Looks really good for a 3D print. I hope that cheaper pins can be found to make this thing an affordable alternative to donor carts. :)

Maybe 7 or 8 years ago (?), before prices skyrocketed, a guy posted a listing on ebay with a VB and "Mario's Dream Tennis." I wrote to say the proper title was Mario's Tennis, and he responded that "this one says Mario's Dream Tennis." For some reason, I didn't follow up and bid. Not sure what I was thinking. Can't even recall if I checked the closing price.


That was most likely just a regular Mario's Tennis cart with a Blockbuster sticker that had the working title on it. I had one once. Found a photo here: https://www.planetvb.com/modules/newbb ... t_id=39477#forumpost39477

Wow mate, that is an ingenious design! So, if I got that right, you have _three_ PCBs in there, counting in the bottom and top sides of the cart which are basically one-sided PCBs? So you won't even need any molds but can get the case done by the board house, then hold it all together with that 3D printed frame.

Besides the brilliant construction, I obviously love the e-ink display and embedded buttons which make this an "almost-multi cart". ;-D

Gotte run, but will post some news about this later today.

Looks nice, but your font is 6x6 pixels per character, while tiles on the Virtual Boy are 8x8 pixels, so it is not really useable unfortunately. At least there would be a lot of whitespace around the characters (or blackspace, rather ).

Funny thing, over 10 years ago, the owner of the Jack Bros and Panic Bomber prototypes called me on my phone to ask me about the rarity of those. No idea where he got my number from. IIRC, we later also talked through PM and I bought a VUE-Debugger video output board from him through ebay.

BTW, there also was a prototype of Virtual Bowling, of which DogP had pictures on his site. He borrowed it from its owner alongside Faceball and a VUE-Debugger. It was just the final version with the debug menu enabled, though.

To clarify on the "FB+" and boxes topic:

Back when I was making them, the first 100 or so units of FlashBoy Plus came CIB and in official cartridge shells. Like the original FlashBoy, but in an updated box.

After Richard started handling everything by himself, the box got ditched and cart shells were 3D printed, in various forms. From that point, the product was called "FlashBoy+" instead of "FlashBoy Plus".

I was still sitting on a big batch of box prints at that point, so I split these and sent them to some members of the community who sold them off to FB+ buyers who also wanted a box. speedyink posted the forum link above. I believe all boxes were sold off a while ago.

The original announcement post has some high quality images of the FlashBoy Plus box, BTW: https://www.planetvb.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=307

There's an error in the video: UncleTusk and David Tucker are not the same person. Tusk has never done any homebrew and David hasn't been active in many years.

Other than that: Sweet! Thank you for the nice review! Do you know yet which game you will cover next? I am looking forward to it.
