The resolution of the Virtual Boy is 384x224, not 324x224.

Guy Perfect has a modern (and more accurate) version of the Sacred Tech Scroll that's still really useful for providing basic info on how to develop for the Virtual Boy's hardware:
http://perfectkiosk.net/stsvb1.html

However, this doesn't provide any documentation on how to use the various homebrew dev tools that are out there; it's just providing hardware-related stuff (CPU / VIP / VSU / communication port / game pad / timer / wait controller).

Also, and for music-related stuff, M.K. is current making VB Music Tracker.

M.K., the guy that created the GameBoy emulator for Virtual Boy, is working on a VB music tracker and a game.

I'm more excited for his tracker. His plan of releasing it last week in March has died, most likely because of more additional bugs he needs to fix before it's ready to release.

Okay, so the server didn't crash again on March 23rd, 2019. Thanks for fixing up this issue!

Nope, the issue didn't fix. Your server crashed/went offline again.

The server could have malware installed that caused it to crash at 3:00 in the morning. I definitely know that there are films and creepypastas related to 3 AM, so I assume the malware would be related to that too.

It's recommended to run a virus scan on the server's Operating System (OS), to be able to remove the unwanted malware, etc.

The reason for the malware installation could be because of software and files you may have been downloading, or that another DNS server drive-by-downloaded it using an open UPnP connection.

After approximately 7:00 PM PDT, this website goes offline (at least where I live), and I can't browse it until the next morning afterwards. Can you please fix this?

I have this Foobar2000 Equalizer Preset file on my hard drive. Does this sound any good to the quality you get out of the "cheap tiny speakers"?

We just don't want to get original VB hardware, I just want to replicate the effect in software.

Virtual Boy speaker quality

I've watched a few videos and audio clips of people playing real Virtual Boys. The sound output from the speakers sounded like they were passing through some frequency equalizer or something, rather than the crispy-clear output of emulators.

I'd like to apply that effect to some audio files to see how they would sound, if someone removed the speakers from a VB unit and managed to hook them up to a PC for audio.

What frequency bands should I specify in audio editing programs, such as Audacity, to recreate this quality?

Unfortunately, this is not a "Virtual Boy 2 console".

Maybe I'm missing something, but I did a basic java install from their homepage and then clicked on your latest jar file, selecting any padded or unpadded game and it doesn't do anything but a black box.

I'm kind of curious about this like if I'm missing some setup or button press that's needed.


Press F5 to start the game/ROM.
