I always assumed this was going to be a preorder. Definitely do what you need to do. I think you have the support of a lot of people who are anxious for this. I'd be happy with either a preorder or a kickstarter.

I think Mobius Strip Tech (the person who made the FURGB boards for Voultar) has kicked around the idea of taking up this project and making boards. Perhaps if enough people show interest to him, he may make them on request. I don't have any personal knowledge, that's just what I remember him saying.

He's got a website and an active Twitter account. I'm new here and don't know the rules on linking. I don't want to link and possibly get in trouble, but you should be able to find him via a search for his name.

Hey there. So I am pretty excited to join this community and spent a decent amount of money on a VB from Ebay that was from a good reputable games seller and they said the system had been inspected and worked well. I paid a bit of a premium for the peace of mind.

However, after getting the unit and trying it out, there are definitely some issues with the screens. I know some of these problems are typical and that the repair services in this thread can fix them, but some of the issues I haven't seen addressed on this or other forums, so I don't really know.

My left screen is very dim, I can hardly see it and can't make anything out on it. The camera picks it up, but my eyes do not. The game seems to work fine out of this lens, but it is constantly blurry (due to a mirrored image?) in the pics, and I'm thinking perhaps there is an issue with the mirrors not oscillating. There are also horizontal lines across the top or bottom.

The right screen starts up fine, and the brightness is good. After about a minute it gets the telltale glitchy "The Matrix" look that I know is repairable, but after about another 30 seconds, it turns to mostly just a single bright thick line. I haven't seen any examples of the thick line in other people's posts.

Like RetroRGB, I plan on having my unit modded with a VirtualTap, so in theory, I would only need one good screen anyways, but given the premium I paid for the console, I would kind of like the system to work so that I have the option to play the console either with an external monitor OR through the viewfinder. If the right side monitor could be repaired and the left can not, it still might be worth it to tap off that one, but with the glitch turning into a thick line, I'm not sure even that is a possibility.

I have attached a picture below that shows the issues I'm talking about. If a modder has experience and can tell me whether my issues are fixable and worth the effort, or whether I should just return the item and try my luck with another unit, I would really appreciate it.
