I have successfully talked my fab house down to $0.25 per pair increase for tape, mostly due to the large number of prospective buyers. At present, I have 42 unique buyers wanting a total of 125 pairs.

At that rate, I'm perfectly fine with eating that out of the profit margin, so the upshot is that I have all the features I want at an acceptable price.

At this stage, I'm just waiting for the end of May to shove my order in. If you know anyone who wants to get on board, point them my way!

Thanks to all for making this project successful!

EDIT: Below are pictures of the final design:

Weird. I'm noticing the same thing. Compiles, says it runs, but it's not actually returning random.

I havn't installed mine yet. Do you by any chance have any picture of how you wired it to the d-sub? I don't understand the VGA-wiring pic of the GND, or do you just put a wire between each pin?


I actually designed a little breakout board for the signals to easily connect them to the VirtualTap board.

Also, here's the instructions for correct installation:

I'll probably do a run of these myself. I'm also working on an upgraded version in what little free time I can spare.



As long as it eventually gets a run, I'd be thrilled and would order one immediately! What would the upgrade being?


For the time being, that's a secret.

It actually works out to $0.63 per cable in cost. Now, alternatively, I have a roll of 3M that I could just use to do it myself for less, but I'm currently looking at about 250 cables. That's a lot of work and time, and it wouldn't be as neat and orderly as a factory install.

But those are exactly the sort of opinions I want to hear, Force. That's why I set up the nintendoage poll.

I have added a poll on my NintendoAge Thread to determine whether or not I should add 3M tape to each cable for $1 per pair more, bringing the final total up to $12 per pair.

Please vote and let me know!
