I have an eclectic VB cart collection that contains a lot of 1-off builds (Wario Land with a battery cage, Mario Clash hacked ROM, Jack Bros. hacked ROM, Space Squash English translation, etc). When thunderstruck released the Innsmouth Mansion English Translation patch, I knew I wanted it on a standalone cart!

More about that patch here: https://www.planetvb.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=7285

The person who had helped make most of my carts recently decided to stop doing so. As a result, I needed to find someone new and relatively affordable. It just so happened that I randomly stumbled upon https://www.vintex64.com/store/p164/Custom-VB-Card.html. They have a listing for custom carts so I contacted the people behind the site, made sure they were comfortable making the cart, and then placed my order.

The total cost was $43.50 USD (including shipping) for the PCB, a real VB cartridge shell, a real VB cart dust cover, and 2 stickers. The cart arrived fully assembled. It was shipped in a hand cut piece of cardboard placed inside of a vanilla envelope. The cart arrived safely about 2 weeks after placing my order. I was told the delay was so they could fully test the ROM hack before committing to my order!

Everything works great and I am extremely happy with this purchase. I wanted to make this post to share this experience with others who may be interested in similar purchases.

Cheers!

Compile? So your issue is with your own code not working on hardware?

To run on the FB/FB+ your ROM will need to be 2MB. Is the padding program outputting the correct file size?

I like the look of that design. It reminds me of the '90s.

Kevin,
You've brought so much life back into my VB these past few years! Thank you! I can't wait for the MultiBoy 32!

I have a pretty unique VB collection. Check my PVB profile page. Anyways, I own this... It's JB (with all hacks applied) on a reproduction board w/custom label.

It's the only "reproduction" I've ever seen. Mega Ran did a Freestyle holding it once. =O

I would 100% trust ThunderStruck to compare your ROM with what we have. He has done some amazing things for this community already (hacks, translation work, homebrew, applications, coding, etc). He also works in computers and is very knowledgeable about the VB.

Just my 2 cents!~

I've been on the Internet since it's conception. I started on VAX dummy terminals browsing Web sites with text only. One thing I learned early on was to provide different information for different sign-ups. Worst thing someone got off me is they know one of my throwaway e-mail accounts (already heavily tweaked for spam) and had a chance (for over a year?) to access my PVB account.

After reading this thread, that password has just been made more defend-able. =)

That's funny, and a good find. It's the type of mistake an editor would catch on a later read and probably think no one would ever notice.
