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.

What codebase will be used, or will there be bases for multiple languages? I'd love to be able to use my native C++ instead of dealing with the kludgefest that is straight C.


The VSCode extension is tailored for VUEngine, which uses C++ like syntax. But you can configure it to work with any other library instead, like libgccvb.

A VSCode-based successor to VBDE is currently in the works. It will be available for Windows, Linux and Mac. So if you can wait a few more weeks (or possibly months), we'll have you covered. :-)

The web server crashed every night at 3 am German time for the past few days. I think I have finally found and fixed the issue.

You're going to be waiting awhile, and you know if you combed through all his comments around so far you'd have those answers.

1) In theory yes, it would have the room including that game
2) Yes
3) No padding needed


Where's the info coming from that padding is not needed? AFAIK this cart basically has Kevin's Cart Programmer build-in, which does not support automatic padding yet in the latest firmware.
