Re: Current state of VB on TV in 3D?

There is currently no way to do that. You'd need either two VirtualTaps and something that could take two VGA inputs and composite the two streams together, or you'd need an entirely custom system to replace the VirtualTaps that can do a digital composite and output a 3D stream (be it anaglyph or some dual-frame format).

Either way, I think focusing on compatibility 3D televisions is a dead end, because they're simply not available anymore. I think it would be a better use of time, especially if we're talking about a VirtualTap successor with HDMI output, to focus on compatibility with VR headsets. A PSVR can be had for $200 or less and is available new, whereas 3DTVs are fairly difficult to come by.

Wouldn't the ideal way be to use something like a VirtualTap?

I got my VB from eBay, so I don't know if it was a retail unit. It came in a retail box, so I strongly believe it's a retail unit.

Unless that retail box still had its warranty card with a matching serial number, there's no way to tell if that unit actually belonged with that box. I picked up a boxed unit on eBay, probably 15 years ago at this point, and the serial on the unit did not match what was on the warranty card attached to the box.

Looks pretty simple - just an ATtiny25 on a small board. I could probably manage it, no problem.

If you want to do a small run, I'd be in for two.

That looks more like a button-up shirt than a jacket.

I don't know precisely, but those labels look like they're applied by hand (especially that first one), so it could simply have been installation error, or orientation really didn't matter.

They better give us a VB collection for Labo now

Hard pass. It would be like trying to play a VB while you're also trying to hold it against your face because the stand is broken/missing; and few people are going to want to play laying on their backs with the LaboVR and their $300 Switch balancing on their faces while cardboard gets pressed into their skin--no thanks.

So does anyone have a spare Virtualtap to sell? Something went wrong with my order with Furrtek and I ended up with a refund. Really sucks because he was doing the servo emulator for mine too.

I have two spares, one NTSC and one VGA; haven't even touched them yet. Shoot me a PM.

All my boards have been offered to people. :3 If I somehow end up with a spare again, I'll put it in the Marketplace forum.

Hi. Perhaps this will help? http://projectvb.com/rechargepack.html

If you do this, make sure you get newly-manufactured cells; don't bother cannibalizing a Game Gear pack like in those instructions--the cells will be too old and probably won't hold a charge, assuming they haven't already leaked everywhere.
