I already asked them and they mentioned that you can install one video board on each side of the main board.

So my current plan is to make a standalone VB console that has both RGB and VGA outputs. Seeing as I have a spare main VB board with no LED displays.

Oof, yeah it looks like it. I was planning on getting it for a spare head unit that doesn't have the LED boards. So connecting the internal LEDs wasn't really a concern of mine.

I'll edit my earlier post to show it's not quite as easy as cutting a hole.

After talking to them apparently it's an adapter that connects between the main VB board and the LED displays.

So it would go like

Main Board -> Virtual Tap Mod -> Regular LED display

The only real modification to the system itself you have to do is to create a hole somewhere in the plastic casing for the video port to come out.

Edit:

As pointed out below, it looks like you'll need to solder the original ribbon cable to connect this board to the original internal displays. Not quite as plug in play as I expected but still great that someone has created this mod.

Just a heads up for anyone looking for an easy way to play virtual boys on regular monitors!

Their site about the Virtual Tap mod (VGA and RGB)
http://furrtek.free.fr/virtualtap/

Currently asking Furrtek to get myself an order in, if this works it'll be awesome!

Check the output voltages on both ac adapters. All AC adapters list the input and output voltages required. Input would be the power required from the wall (120, 220V etc.), while output is what is sent to the actual system. As long as the output voltages and the plug is the same, there shouldn't be a problem using a PAL SNES power adapter on a US VB.

For example I use a US power adapter on a PAL Wii U. As we live in the US and have 120V.

Hopefully this helps.

Just played through the new warioware. There is no 3d anywhere in the game. It's 2d only.

If your displays ever start acting up again, feel free to let me know. I'm also located in the greater Seattle area and can do the solder repair for the glitchy displays.

Best of luck with the awesome prototype!

Thanks! As for the tripod adapter I actually just got the tripod first and made the file myself. If anyone wants the file I attached it below, but it's a pretty atypical stand compared to the standard flat plate - screw in tripod stands.
