The carts are still coming along great, especially with all that's going on surrounding the shops you're using, which must be a huge pain to have to deal with, especially being out of everyone's control. It looks great so far, and obviously no one's expecting it on time due to these circumstances. It being late is completely understandable, and it at least gives some time to get the case designs you're working on down, which look fantastic. Hoping the rest is running a little smoother for you through all this, and you can get enough progress done on everything that makes you happy. :)

Re: An idea: Replacement VB displays, that produce larger images?

I'd say that looks pretty good! It might need a few coats of solder and some time to rest (a few I did took up to three coats to have a good connection because of the glue) So I'd try a few more before giving up on it. As for the LED, the virtual boy is in desperate need of a replacement LED option. Once an LED goes bad on one, or gets lost/damaged, there's no way to fix it unless you buy an entirely new console. As the LED's are the most common part by far to go bad, creating a new one is a welcome idea, but would take machine-processed boards to assemble, and I guess the payoff and demand isn't high enough to create something like this.
I'm not sure about the larger LED's, they're designed as the size they are to just fit on the mirrors, so multiple parts would have to be replaced to get larger LED to function properly, unless it did fit like you said might work. If one was made in the same size as the original however, there would definitely be an interest for them. (I'd buy some if they were available in a heartbeat)

Thanks for the updates over-time about the project, every update makes me that much more excited to see how all this will turn out. Take your time, getting something later in the best possible form is always better than getting it rushed out early. Looking forward to that first prototype!

Not anything new, but I missed this by about 30 seconds, and I am SOOO salty about it... Anyone else have a story of a crazy deal in the past they missed out on?

there's also this one I found on ebay, it's the cheapest one I've found by far, you can't beat getting both-sized screwdrivers for three bucks :)

Minor crushing in a sealed box

I just recently got this sealed Waterworld box, and it's in fantastic condition with no openings to the seal, however there is unfortunately some crushing on the corner of the box. Does anyone know of a way to unfold the box without opening up the seal? Just wondering if anyone had ever encountered something like this before, as it's not a common problem. Thank you for any suggestions!

Very cool and impressive work! Especially like how that label looks, from the photo it looks nearly like the original. Looking forward to seeing what you do with this!

Great to hear that, the ability to reprogram from the cart itself is incredible, and I'm pretty sure most if not everyone would still say how incredible that idea was even if it was a little slower at re-flashing the cart. It's a really unique and innovative idea, and everyone'll be more than happy with however well the result turns out to be :) (also that design looks sick, the red on black looks as fantastic as the system itself)

Could you post a good-quality picture of it? It may still be salvageable, taking off extra solder and re-aligning pins could be all it takes to fix your cable. Unfortunately unless you solder individual wires to replace the ribbon, there really isnít an alternative out there...

Thatís great! I just got one recently that I plan on fixing for a rediculously good deal, so with some patience, you can definitely find some great undervalued listings on ebay. Happy hunting!
