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.

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.

I just tried the flasher on Windows 10 with a FlashBoy Plus. I kept getting error messages:

"Error: hidapi error: Der E/A-Vorgang wurde wegen eines Threadendes oder einer Anwendungsanforderung abgebrochen."

(Google Translate: "Error: hidapi error: I / O operation was aborted due to thread end or application request.")

After I switched from USB 2 to USB 3, it worked just fine!

Great work, cr1901, thank you! That thing will be a nice addition to VBDE 2.0. In fact, we plan to release Linux and Mac versions as well, so a cross platform flasher was like a missing link. Being able to flash via the command line, without requiring further input, is a welcome bonus. :-)

Any idea why Windows Defender SmartScreen complains about the app being unknown, and prevents it from being started on the first run?

Good idea, HorvatM! So, according to the usercenter, 50 users own V. Bowling, 52 own V. Lab. Lists attached.

I've got scans of dozens and dozens of magazines, including this one, which I never got around to add to the site. (@___@;)

Hey,

if you end up making a tutorial series I would love to help. I had this idea of recording a stream in which I try to get something to work with your engine for a while.

Cheers


Looking at the votes so far, we'll definitely have to create these tutorials next year. We're pleasantly surprised to see that so many people are interested in learning how the engine works!

Good idea to collaborate on this somehow, let's talk on Discord when you're around!

I am super interested in seeing a Point N Click adventure game like Ambrosines Monster Manor. Itís what Iíve wanted since the first time I played a Virtual Boy.


You're the only one so far to request a graphics adventure game, so it doesn't look like this will make it onto the TODO list for next year. But on the other hand, an engine for this type of game should be fairly easy to build. Might be something to consider as the "simple sample game" we want to build in our upcoming tutorial series.

The graphics in Monster Manor look like they were rendered from scenes built in a 3D modeling program? I wonder if it would be possible to get the original files from the developers and do stereoscopic renderings...

Awesome, ElmerPCFX! I am glad these patches are finally out! I guess we now have a foot in the door for Linux (and possibly OSX) versions of VBDE. :-)

Hey everyone! We are conducting a poll to find out which project the Virtual Boy community would like Jorge and me to focus on in the coming months. You all are welcome to vote! Don't worry, you don't need to pledge to the campaign to do so, although a Patreon account is required. Sorry for that, not our fault. ;-)

Alternatively, leave a comment in this thread. Your input will be very much appreciated, thanks!
