This is pretty cool. I feel like it deserves an honorable mention (and link) in the Unreleased Dragon Hopper section. If more of these type of games pop-up, then I vote for a new section -- "Compiled for MK's GBA on VB EMU".

I read the reply in the comments about the HyperFlash32. I urge you to keep in mind that if this hardware is a solution for anti-piracy, that not everyone can afford this hardware. Cheers!

I like the idea of a way to easily list, sell, buy, rate, and provide feedback being incorporated into this site.

I do not like the idea of making something "limited edition" just to curb "piracy". One ROM for this type of release, another for the public, yet another for a demo, one locked to a specific EMU, one that has Easter-eggs, one cart that has a special sticker, one that has blinking lights....

Another one of those YT "top" videos. This one is the top mistakes Nintendo made they wish you not to know. One of the things listed is the VB. In case you missed it, the link should go right to the clip.

I've been writing reviews for close to 18 years and have been sent so many of these types of devices! I have to say, the idea of collecting carts is also something that intrigues me. The last thing I had with carts was the MD Max (Genesis clone), that had multi-carts available for it. I guess those of us from the cart generation will always have nostalgia for these devices.

Thanks for sharing. I didn't know about this one until I saw this post!

The 1st and only official run PCB was 100% made by Richard (Minestorm). Packaging was put together by UncleTusk. Initial pre-orders were sold by BigMak. I can not recall who shipped my carts, though. I'm not speculating, I was part of the conversation then and after. This includes a few of the more sensitive conversations and facts that, for some reason, we just never talk about. This game still has a strange vale of secrecy around it. There are other carts out there which I was told from owners were purchased from Kevin. Richard gave all of his remaining boards to JohnnyPhantom, who was going to do a 2nd "official" run, but never did.

Any other boards I have not seen nor do I know where they come from.

I own two CIB carts, and will open them up this week to see if they are different than images already posted here. I have a vague recollection that the first boards were purple in color, but the CIB production boards were yellow? I know there was a post, but I went looking and conveniently could not find it (hmm). Web archive for the win? Some more info here: http://web.archive.org/web/2017072409 ... rtual-boy-hyper-fighting/

Both of my carts fit well into the VB. I have opened them before and will add that they do take a little extra pressure when putting the shell back together.

I hope my typing this does not appear as if I am tossing anyone under the bus or posting something I should not. This is because Richard, Eric, and Kevin have all been very kind to me. In fact, my unique VB cart collection would not exist if it was not for all 3 of them. Especially Richard and Eric!

This entire exchange is disheartening. I have only come to know about it this very minute. I only wish the labor of love, Snatcher, goes on to see the light of day... eventually. That is because of the history behind that game's development.

Good luck to you Thunderstruck.

Edit: I'm poking around their site and I do not see any of your projects for sale. I was aware of your projects being on the site a while ago (especially GameHero and FishBone). It looks like they honored your wishes?

Hi. I wanted to chime in with that otherwise useless bit of additional content. I have only 1 USB cable that works with my FB+. It was the one that came with it, originally. I've never found anything else that works. I once sent it back for repairs, assuming it was the USB connector. After having it re-soldered and returned, the problem continues. hehe. Quirky.

Would it be possible to disassociate the USB driver with that device, so the next time you plug it in, it's like the 1st time again? Maybe something even as drastic as an uninstall/reinstall?

I am curious if this story will continue. Paypal siding with you looks good in your behalf. I hope you use that momentum and call a lawyer to go after this person who tried to defraud you.
