I am horrible at searching this forum. I always look to Ben to post specific answers! lol. There is a thread here that discusses the mirrors and servos. There were things discussed with electronics as well as just bending things back into place. After reading your 1st post I instantly recalled this thread because I think it will relate to what you are experiencing. I just can't find it! Help, Ben?

Andrew Borman (a video game preservationists) at The Strong Museum in Rochester, NY spoke with me about wanting a way to capture VB game-play. If anyone would be interested in a donation, he can be reached here: aborman@museumofplay.org

Cheers!

I have a family member who was a manager at more than one GameStop. This person has stories of corporate telling them to smash retro trade-ins with a hammer to increase demand.

Is this an automatic machine that uses the Game Boy to do sewing or is that just there because someone made a hole and put it there?

I've had many a retail management positions. With almost certainty I can suggest that top-side up labels were done by employees who were told to apply stickers and did so with the understanding that it was a case for carrying. Bottom-side down labels were probably done by managers who understood the case was part of the sales presentation (EG: the label faces the side of the case that opens).

I like this list idea, however, I feel that I should point out that you will not be able to edit the 1st post forever. Eventually this thread will be a collection of posts, without a central list.

With that said...

Retro City Rampage has the Virtual Meat Boy stage.

Innsmouth Mansion English Translation Cart

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.
