With Flashboy no longer being produced, I think most people would welcome any solution. Wouldn't hurt to have two tiers, a cheaper and a more expensive option. I'm guessing Multiboy32 will be pretty pricey and it might turn a lot of people off, having a cheaper simple option like a Flashboy might help expand the market for homebrew. Could do a Flashboy32 and a Multiboy32.


That was about what I was thinking as well. It could be cheaper. It's also a good in between engineering wise and would be faster to develop. I doubt I'd ever be able to name it FlashBoy32, though. Although that would be the most logical name. I was thinking HyperBoy32 for obvious reasons. Or just HyperBoy.

Another what if.

What about a device similar to FlashBoy but has a 32Mbit memory?

I did spend some time looking into one that may be simpler. Turns out the electronics would be nearly the same so not much different in effort.

I may have a small window in January to come back to the MultiBoy to push it to the next step.

As someone who doesn't have a Flashboy but really would like a way to play homebrews (on the VB) that sounds great. As long as you think you'll be able to balance your studies with the development of a "multislot Flashboy" I'm all for it.

Sing me up for one! ;)


Ok I’ll think about it. Maybe call it MultiBoy Lite. Or just MultiBoy to distinguish it from the 32 version I announced.

Still alive but definitely paused. I'm back studying again. I was entertaining the possibility of having someone else pick up the project and continue with it but haven't had time to pursue it further.

mellott124, I feel that the best way to pull this off in the foreseeable future is to use the VB itself as a cart port and HID, and a separate box that plugs into the link cable port that does the actual programming.


Cool idea but it would be very slow compared to the current programmer. The link port is 250kHz at best. You’d also need a boot loader in every cart as the VB runs off the cart code.

A few more motherboards have become available if anyone wants me to build a programmer in a regular case.

It's been just over a year for this project. Hard to believe. So please find attached the design files for the VB mini case for my programmer.

These were designed in TinkerCad. At one point I was thinking of modifying these files to house a Raspberry Pi for a software VB console. Then later was thinking of modifying it for a VB motherboard to use with the Furrtek video out mod for a hardware VB console. Not going to do that anytime soon so maybe someone else can.

You'll probably want to reference this page with the part names to assemble one:
http://www.mellottsvrpage.com/index.php/vr-cart-programmer-build/

I'll eventually update that page as well with the same models.
