Sorry, but I am even more confused now. Your e-mail asked about the FB (FlashBoy) and I was curious about the FB+ (FlashBoy Plus). After poking around the cart's dedicated thread, it appears the last few to post that mention receiving one did so in December of 2017 (so about 2 years ago). I am going to assume Richard was responding generically by grouping the FB and FB+ together.

With Flashboy no longer being produced


Hello, can you link to somewhere where Richard has said he is no longer making them? I am asking because the last thing I read he said he was still making them, however, his donor sources have been depleted and he was asking for donors + cost for a FB+.

Hi. I've never built a stand of any kind and will often play my VB for hours without any back or neck pain. I've always found that having an adjustable chair helps a lot. When one is not available, a few sturdy books work great. These days you can find a few books at any Thrift Store or Library sale for under $5. Old text books or outdated encyclopedias are always cheap and sturdy.

What I have always wanted to do is pick up a cheap drum cymbal stand and convert it for the VB. I've just never come across one for the right price. I think this would be most ideal because you could sit in a comfy chair and adjust the VB for you, and not the other way around!

@Johnny Phantom: The one thing that sticks out from your posts is your dedication to your life, which leaves you with very little free time. I was curious, would you ever consider passing everything on to someone who has the time to complete this project?

While I am not the developer and have no say in his final decision, I would also like to add that having to flip hardware switches or re-connect the cart to the computer to select new games, seems like a step backwards. It sounds much less efficient and time consuming than having to re-flash the FB/FB+.

As stated above, HF is just too large to fit on the current FB+ design. Even it was dumped. With that said... If anyone has a simple plug-n-play Windows compatible hardware to dump the HF ROM (that would function correctly the 1st time -- I've no wish to make a project of this) and would like to make it available, I would be more than happy to dump and release my cart. It's been long enough.

Hello. Hyperkin sells a replacement stand with the clip on-top for an MSRP of 29.99. https://www.hyperkin.com/virtual-boy-r ... ment-stand-repairbox.html

A quick Google search should give you a site (Amazon, Walmart, StoneAgeGamer, etc) where you can get one!

I own #13 and I paid under $100 for it.

This is everything: https://www.planetvb.com/modules/usercenter/uploads/1584_1.jpg minus the mini-USB cable that would have been included in the box.

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!
