To clarify on the "FB+" and boxes topic:

Back when I was making them, the first 100 or so units of FlashBoy Plus came CIB and in official cartridge shells. Like the original FlashBoy, but in an updated box.


That is a part of it's history I did not know. My understanding was that they were always sold as two separate purchases. Thank you for clearing that up!

Hi. The FB+ was never released CIB. However, a box was created and offered separately. The first 3D printed shells were done in red and those were made about 6 years ago. Before that, the FB and FB+ was housed in an official VB cartridge shell.

Cheers!

If you don't want any spoilers but would like to play the padded ROM... Post 19 has it attached. Just log-in, click, scroll (don't read spoilers), and you should be good. =)

There were a lot of VB boxed games out of Mexico that appeared on eBay about 2 years ago that also had printed instructions. When I contacted the seller, he told me that this was how the games came in Mexico. I've no idea if this is true or what the state of VB games was like in 1995 Mexico. Perhaps, this is a possibility?

Cheers.

Hi. Welcome. If you have a working VB, my first bit of advice would be to pick up a FlashBoy+. With it you can enjoy translations, hacks, homebrew, and of course the entire VB ROM library. It's a great way to test things out before deciding which actual carts you must own!

I recommend that you give this article a read. It's pretty much the 101 for VB history! =)

You found a great community. Cheers and have fun!

Hi.

I am by no means an expert on the VB, however, for a time I was watching eBay almost daily. What I can tell you is that I often see damaged units (usually just requiring soldering) with no games and often no controller/stand, for around $30-50 (with shipping). Your value will be in the complete package, and especially in your games, the eye shade, and the stand (if it is 100% complete). If you sell it to someone from this site, you will most likely be giving it a good home.

Cheers and good luck!

This might be the part where it's a good idea to explain that the game is a satire on the Yume Nikki fan game concept; it's a joke. Only one of the effects has a function (aside from opening a door), and the bike deliberately does not speed you up. The deeper meaning is simply what's on the surface. Delicious.


Hi. Having no context for the game or its character, I was really confused if I had reached the ending or not. Thank you for your explanation!

Hi.
So, I got to a screen that said FIN after Nina jumped to what seemed like her death? Is this the ending?

I collected a bunch of items (pizza server, 3d glasses, a bike, a manga) but none of them seemed to do anything. The manga got me through a door, but I found nothing useful inside. The bike said it would make me go faster, but did not. I'm confused...

Is the point of the game to collect the items and then to make that jump or am I missing out on something?

I also wanted to ask, are there plans to add music or sound effects? I feel like both would greatly enhance the game.

I hope no one minds that I have attached a padded copy of the 7.19.19 ROM to this post. It was padded using method #3 with the default size (21 - 2MB) and has been confirmed to boot on actual hardware.

Thanks!
