I'm curious for those of us without deep pockets to get into oculous, has anyone attempted to convert this (or would it already work) on a non-3D android device. There isn't much going on good in the world of VB emulation it appears these days.

No I'd say that seems to me that is a rental store one. Some I've seen for as far back as the NES got that detailed and with that kind of uniform font. Usually they were affixed into those plastic rental cases, as an included sheet or whatever. It more throws me having the frayed one side like it was torn out.

Yeah I've tried on occasion using my iphone8plus and it works, but it's anything but sharp.

See for yourself.

That was after quite a few attempts to not be downright blurry. I do have a nikon digital camera I could try on a monopod as it's kind of frisky on its own without being stabilized like that but I doubt it would improve.

If it's ebay, unless it was listed as for parts and repair only AND they didn't mislead you on why it is listed as such, ebay basically screws sellers and forces returns despite what it says.

So it's kind of up to you if that's where it came from if you want to fix it or forget it.

It's fun, but dangerous to the wallet if you're really serious about the JP library unless you're loaded and just don't care. Perhaps a bit less ambitious would be to start polishing off the US library. I got started at the very end of January this year and as of now I've got a few aftermarket pieces, but better yet I'm one short of the US library and just been waffling on buying the game (and no, it's not Jack, I have it.)

It's fun, and not too bad going after the US library depending the depth of the rabbit hole you're chasing. But Japan, I hope you have thousands lying around as those last 4 games to come out for it get insane.

Ebay is a bit all over when it comes to the complete unit but not so wide as you put it. A broken bare headpiece is like $50 plus or minus a little bit. A complete unit though as it came from the box (vb, stand, eye shade/clip, tennis, battery box) those aren't hard to value when unfixed but a fairly easy to peg value would be $150~ because a solder fixed unit would double the value as they can and will sell at $300.

Yet you have a few games, bundling cuts value but not grossly as VB is a small library and desired with smaller numbers to go around. I would think if you just said $200-225 someone would snap it up and just fix it themselves or send it off if they intended to keep it, for resale, nope but for keeps yes.

Virtual Tap is an outlier, how about finding good ways for someone to make a clean picture not using expensive mods. :D I've tried using cameras of a couple types before, didn't work out all that well in most cases. I'd have to kill any light source around, then pick one eye piece and try and get a workable angle. Often you'd get a glow and a little blur, but on a rare time it worked it was pretty sharp. I had tried to take some pictures of Hyper Fighting a few months back for someone and got mixed results (and a few other games before that one too.)

I purchased my first Virtual Boy which seemed to be defective so I ordered another one. It turns out that the first one was not defective, but likely just had cartridge slot oxidation which was preventing it from booting up. I tested my original console today and was pleasantly surprised to see it working again. My second unit has had the ribbon cables soldered on. Both units work great now!


Good job. Your story sounds familiar. Where did you end up getting your solder fixed unit? I know I've read something similar before on one site or another kind of recently.

I'd think if it's only fixing 1/2 the speakers, then you have a cold/bad solder connection to the spot where that speaker is. Is, is the problem, is could be the ports, the trace between ports, solder at any junction. I'd work your way from A to B to C along the line and figure it out.

I've noticed that too, the site here has some strange holes as far as some downloads or even just general images, basic stats, and other reviews or statement pieces go especially with homebrew and prototypes too.

I was wanting to see like for instance what Hyper Fighting had about a week ago and it's a ghost town.
