Somewhere along the line (around page 4 of this topic) I picked up the notion that the HyperFlash 32 was going to have some mechanism for loading new ROMs into the flash slot from the SD card without requiring the use of a PC - just a USB power source. I imagined it would be a button or an input on the touch screen. Is that still the plan?

Yes. My understanding is that the eInk display is feasible, and it has at least two buttons on the unit itself, so the final product will be able to, with just a USB power source, let you cycle through games on the SD card and write the selected game to flash--no requirement for software on a PC.

I, however, do not recommend that replacement stand, because the one I received was not made well. The legs don't snap into place like an original, and the legs themselves don't quite have the same shape, which results in a wobbly stand with a bit of a tilt to it.

If the only part of your original stand that's broken is the medallion, maybe look into getting a reproduction medallion, either 3D-printed or, if you can find one, one of the metal ones.

Hi, wondering if I can still get my hands on a Flashboy+? Thanks!

I don't think so; I'm pretty sure they're not being made anymore. Instead, mellott124 is working on a similar, more-capable product called the HyperFlash32: https://www.planetvb.com/modules/newbb ... php?topic_id=7448&forum=2

Will the HyperFlash use USB C or Micro-B?

If Galactic Pinball has battery-backed saves, I suppose removing the battery would successfully wipe the scores.

This is really cool, and reminds me a lot of the Dreamcast VMUs.

Would there be any protection for the screen, or is it sturdy enough to be gripped when handling the cart?

How, exactly, would this work in practice? I can see utility for this with single-game flash carts, where it gets updated when you flash a new game via PC, so you can easily identify which game is currently on it.

It doesn't really make sense to me for something like the MultiBoy, where you're most likely to be leaving it in your VB all the time. Maybe if the MultiBoy had its own battery, and you changed games by pulling the cart out, hitting one or two buttons to cycle games (maybe pressing another to program it, if that's necessary), then sticking it back in to play that game; but that sounds like it's more hassle and expense than it's worth.

That's funny, my plan tonight is to upgrade the speaker in mine to something less.....piezo electric speaker like.


Turns out, waste of time. The amp itself sucks balls so no matter what speaker you wire in, it still distorts at the high volume. I mean maybe it overall sounds sliiiightly better, but not really noticeable. I suppose it's an easy project, but I wouldn't say it's worth it unless you wire up a new amp system or something. I wasted more time then usual cause I thought it was a rattle, but eventually I used it while still apart to find it was actually distorting. Trying two other speakers also resulted in the same thing. Guess the whole endeavor turned into just for the name of science.

While I'm leaving the new speaker in, I do not recommend this mod.

Sounds like it needs a more comprehensive mod with its own amp or a DAC.

Just going by the photos, the NFR games seem to have a 6 printed in the corners, whereas their retail counterparts have a 1. Does that signify anything?

There's already a PVB Discord; it's linked in the footer. Is there something different you're trying to do with yours?
