I saved 3D tetris for a special occasion. I guess that'll be tomorrow.

I'd call it a good game/movie when it has the VB in it being played on :p

I go with the rarity scale. When I actively extended my collection (got all US games now, don't really want the japanese games that much...) I would check all new virtual boy related ebay auctions once a day, that gave me a good knowledge of what something is worth.

Aren't all roms together under 50MB? Homebrew is not that much larger is it?

I have little fear at all for batteries actually. I like to put those small watch/computer/cartridge batteries on my tongue and suck on them like a mint. Gives a good tingly feeling!
Maybe you should try that, if you can do that you've got nothing to fear!

You can use the US adapter you already have.

I got some adapters (not virtual boy, I got a step-up converter to get it to work since 240V is a bit much for it) that take anything between 100-240 volts.

Many European only adapters take 220-240 volts. Changes are virtual boy adapters (mine is to far away to look at it for you, I'm so lazy ) also have a variable voltage input, it should be on a sticker on the AC adapter.

So you bought a camcorder, and don't know what to do with it? Seems like a bad way to spend money (that could've gone to more VB games a flashboy ).

Why not make a flashcart that has an internal 128MB micro-SD card and card reader?

128MB is more then enough since the biggest commercial games are only 2MB and it comes eve ncheaper if you buy them for all flashcarts at once. Plus you can build in the card reader so you still have only a usb port for those that don't have a (micro) SD card reader.

And if for some reason (secret storage or something ) you really need more space you can open up the flashcart and replace the micro-sd card anyway.

You'd probably still need some flash the VB loads from directly because the VB can't know what to load on the micro-SD card. And the menu you need to have on that flash that loads games from the SD-card will most likely be the hardest to make.

I know the guys over at neoflash have done such a menu for the N64 and are busy making it for their snes card (SD card reading). It's open source so maybe you can learn how they did it if any of these consoles is similar to the VB.

Switch to Opera. I'm not going to list why, but you should give it a try. (BTW, if you're comparing features, Opera has lots of them and is very customizable.)


I'd say, go with that advice.
