What are the chances of Zero Racers being found?

I've been a big F-Zero fan for a long time, and I've always wondered about Zero Racers.

What are the odds of it still existing? What are the odds it could ever be recreated?

I'm in a bit of a pinch financially, and need to get rid of my VB stuff.
I can post pictures later.

I have a fully functioning VB and it's original box.
I have the AC and battery pack adapters with the AC adapter box.
I have the Blockbuster hard case.
I have display only version of Mario Tennis with box, etc.

I also have Wario Land with box

Thanks for the suggestion!

I actually already fixed the glitch issue I was having by doing the oven method. I followed the guide from: Project: Virtual Boy and watched a youtube video. Although a permanent solder solution would be nice in the future.

The issue I am now having is different, and I would much rather fix it myself.

I have since found this post, This thread better describes the issue I am having.

Has anyone else experienced this? I would love to know the best methods to fixing this issue, before I cause additional problems


Man, that oven method is not a fix. It just reseats the glue which may not even be fully seated now anyway.

You need to get those cables soldered and then mess with it. For display issues to be totally ruled out you must have the cables soldered.

These pictures are amazing. I wish someone could translate all of it.

... Spotted in the wild?
What?
That means you saw one in a store or at a flea market or pawn shop.

Also, how is the Virtual Boy a weird image to use when that article is talking about Virtual Reality and Nintendo?

Yeah, it will go on either way. The correct way is with the Nintendo logo facing you. Just don't force your stand on is the lesson there. Sometimes it doesn't want to go together, you just gotta fidget with it a bit until it just glides on, no forcing required.


It's quite possible this guy is just very confused.

This thread is at the top of Google search results and appears to be full of damaging misinformation so I must bump it with my two-cents.

Way back when Nintendo still had replacement stands in stock, I broke my original clamp by trying to put it on backwards. I thought I was trying to put it on correctly, since the manual and every marketing shot showed it installed backwards.

If you look carefully you will see that it is keyed by having one nub slightly larger than the other. This was done deliberately to prevent you from putting it on backwards. It's extremely unfortunate that all the official product shots and diagrams show it mounted backwards already but when someone searches to determine the correct orientation they will find this thread assuring them that it can go in both orientations. They are very likely to believe they can force it, like I did so many years ago. My mistake would be much more costly today, so please be careful!

The correct and only way it will mount is with the medallion logo and elbows of the legs facing away from the user (open side of legs facing the user). Do not force it on!


Totally wrong.
The Nintendo medallion should be facing you.

Are you basing this on what you see in the manual and in official Nintendo pictures, because that is what I am saying is backwards. It simply will not fit the other way around and I know from experience that it will break if you try to force it. While it's very odd that even the instructions are backwards, that's exactly why it is important to set the record straight.


I don't have a single clue what you're talking about.

I went ahead and uploaded a crappy webcam video for you, and anyone else having this issue. It's an issue I've never heard of.
