Just played Deathchase and I gotta say, this is a technical achievement. Got to level 7 before wiping out entirely--there seemed to be some glitches as I began the race (the trees were showing up with error graphic lines or something, but it was running so fast i couldnt see much before I died). But just imagining what this took to design and code---nice work.

Slowly and steadily working my way through the homebrews posted on this site. Tonight's choice was Castle of Doom. I'm just generally impressed by all the devs who get even rudimentary games running on a VB. Loving my Flashboy+ and the effort people have been putting into this system for years. Thanks to you all.

Regarding the comment above, "You are very lucky to have a Flashboy, it seems to be impossible to find one anymore..."

I had mine made just 2 months ago--i think they are still available (flashboy +).

Welcome to the new user! im fairly new myself but an avid devote of the VB.

update: So i played and finished it tonight. Anyone who plans on playing this should refer to page 1 for padding instructions (if you plan to play on a flashboy) and SKIP page 2 if you dont want spoilers.

HOWEVER, i was about to give up after getting almost to the end--and page 2 had a critical piece of information on how to see the ending. So, spoiler, or hint, your decision.

I really liked it. A mysterious vibe, and i caught onto the joke aspects pretty quickly, and though i wont pretend to understand it (even the dadaist ending/meaning/etc) i liked the flavor of the whole thing. It was short enough to play and finish quickly, and it works well. And the graphics are great, especially the void area with the ameoba thing!

Great contribution to the VB homebrew library imho.

thats my guess too. Looks like rental instructions. Ive even heard podcasters talk about working at blockbuster, etc where they themselves ended up keeping the materials (box, manual) when the stores rolled out subs like this to save on loss and wear/tear.

EDIT: on second thought, it seems too technical and professional for a video store knockoff. Seems like maybe some kind of instructions for a demo kiosk or trade show, maybe?

got this up and running using the padding instructions on page 1 of this thread; looking forward to trying it on real VB hardware later tonight. FWIW, this game is competing with Dark Souls (on switch) for my attention. hope that says something for my love of VB. Thanks!

Thanks for the recommendation---I'll try it. However, I've never had this problem before with the other (non-homebrew) games I've played. This VB has been put through its paces for a good while, but never before with indie software!

Hey, i'm not going to let a few moments of nausea or dizziness detract from classic gaming!!! ;']

Thanks for the Flashboy+, and loving 3D Crosswords!

Just received my brand new Flashboy+. After some messing about and tinkering with the padder process, got my first flash homebrew running---this is amazing!

Thanks to the developer of the Flashboy---ordering and delivery to USA went smoothly. Cart looks great, and though I had trouble with one of the Padders, I eventually got another version working (I couldn’t get the “64” version of the Padder to work, so i used the one at the following link.....
https://www.planetvb.com/modules/tech/ ... .php?sec=tools&pid=pad_vb )

Anyway, its late here, but I did take time to mess around with 3D Crosswords---a great choice for my first experience with VB Homebrew. Though this game did make me dizzy (first time on VB, but I've only ever played about 8 of the official games), I really like the concept and even though I'm terrible at crosswords, was able to solve the first puzzle!

Just really excited to see the ongoing life and expanded universe for this underappreciated system. Thanks to all involved, I look forward to digging in more.

As a new Flashboy Plus owner, just adding this info here to help other newbies that come behind me.

I couldn’t get the “64” version of the Padder to work, so i used the one at the following link.

https://www.planetvb.com/modules/tech/ ... .php?sec=tools&pid=pad_vb

You take the VB rom file and drag and drop it into the PAD_VB.EXE program----Again, just pick up the ROM file and HOVER it over the EXE program, drop it, and it will copy and paste a “PAD” version of the ROM file into your folder (adds “pad” to the file name).

This is the one you need to flash onto the Flashboy Plus.

You may need to put the padding program into the folder with the ROM to get it to work. If its working, when you drop the ROM into the Padding EXE, you will see a black screen flash, then it just closes…but the file with the “PAD” extension now works. This is the file you will load into flashboy+ cartridge.

Found some help at this link: https://www.planetvb.com/modules/newbb ... ASC&type=&mode=0&start=10

Just open the loader (Flashboy EXE), select your (padded) ROM, drill down to the folder where the padded rom lives……. and click the "FLASH" button.

Finally, when using the Flashboy EXE program to flash the ROM....YOU NEED TO CHECK THE BOX NEXT TO THE NAME OF THE GAME YOU WANT TO FLASH. This will make the FLASH button light up, and away you go!
