Did you already upload the first stream anywhere?

Didn't notice this as a problem yet ... and that's why it's completely insignificant to me.

And I am absolutely convinced. Please go ahead. And please tell us, if you're running out of budget. I'll see if I can raise my support then :)

you do the usual Coder thing. You code a thing and smash it down again just to code it again in the hopes to make it better.

Basically, you're speaking of perfectionism. And as I also was a perfectionist once, I also know that your request is a very hard thing to ask a Guy Perfect ;)
But of course I get your point. At work, professionals often can not afford perfectionism, due to time and budget. So I first gave it up at work, but kept it for my private projects. During the last years, I made the experience, that it can also be a good thing for private projects, to set limits to perfectionism. I don't consider any of my latest projects perfect, but I'm still very happy with the results ... and happy to actually have so many results :)

What are your thoughts about this, Guy Perfect? Do you think, you could set limits to your heart bleed for this project to push it further?

The Nintendo 3DS is nearing its end of lifespan. People will start to loose interest in that platform at one point. This could render the 3DS VB Emu idea quite useless. Of course there will be a 3DS homebrew scene going on after the 3DS death but the usual gamer has long moved on to try the newest hacks on the switch or the next HyperGameboy.

I don't think that the "usual gamer" would have much interest in the Virtual Boy anyway. But the lovers of stereoscopic or just unique gaming consoles will stay dedicated to the 3DS and surely also are a more matching target group for the VB and this emulator project. The 3DS is more popular, then the VB ever was. But just like the VB, it's a very unique console - a handheld with an autostereoscopic display.

Also, the emulator will only run on 3DS devices with custom firmware anyway. I don't think, that especially CFW users will loose interest so quickly in the 3DS. Maybe there even is a chance, that 3DS homebrew will increase when Nintendo buries the 3DS, because CFW users want new games from other sources then. To me, one of the main reasons to install CFW on the 3DS is to expand it's lifespan, as I belive that it will be kept alive by the homebrew community ... look how great even the "stillborn" Virtual Boy is being kept alive :)

Just made a quick test, setting one of my computer displays to 60Hz and the other one to 50 Hz and then dragged the emulator window from one screen to the other, running the flickering multi color demo and the test image of the Super Famicom.
The flickering is much stronger on the 60 Hz display, looks more inconsistent to me (so it seems to be a good idea to set your display to 50 Hz to optimize the emulator experience).
With the multi-color blending, there's still one hard flicker about every 4 seconds on the 50Hz display, though. Due to the remaining offset of 0.2Hz, I guess ...

50->60Hz would actually require inserting a frame after every fifth one.

If you buy a flat screen in Europe today, it supports all the HDMI / Blu-ray formats - incuding 60 Hz. So I would have guessed that this only was a problem with CRTs and that modern screens worldwide also support all the HDMI formats today, including 50 Hz?

But converting the VB's 50.2Hz to 50Hz would still require dropping one frame every five seconds, though.

I can confirm that my copy has exactly the same contents and it was sold as "new".

Did you guys try both - crossed and parallel viewing? Because parallel causes much more eye strain for me than crossing ...
