I don't have any prototypes but I did manage to find an old Nintendo Roulette game from the mid 60s and a trophy for selling SNES/Genesis copies of Primal Rage. Other than those two items, I have a Mattel Microvision, the rumble pak version of Super Mario 64, and a Chinese bootleg version of Dragon Ball Z: Goku Hishoden for the Game Boy.

The save battery in VB carts seem to be the same as GB, GBC, & some GBA carts, meaning that they are soldered to the board by the tabs. Looking at my VB Wario Land cart, it seems to use a CR 1616 battery for saving which can be harvested from either another VB cart or GB/GBC/GBA cart that has as a save feature. Some Game Boy carts use a CR 2025 battery saving (like the Pokemon games), so it can be a little tricky to find the right size battery to harvest and most GBA games that have save feature use flash storage rather than a battery.

Or you could find replacements on places like eBay with the tabs already in the battery, so all you'd need to do is a quick and careful solder job https://www.ebay.com/itm/10X-CR1616-SA ... b5b45a:g:GWQAAOSwRLZT-mfn

Finished making the rest of the boxes. Posted a video of them on my twitter

Was a fun little project to do and I like it a little more than how I was storing my handhelds carts earlier; in a binder.

Bought some card stock paper and printed color versions. Since I didn't have a laminate machine thingy I used a bit of packaging tape as a substitute. Got 8 done so far and they turned out nicely :)

Made a test version. Couldn't really find any GB box scans so I went to CoverProject and fit scans made for DS cases onto a GB box template. It's made of standard printer paper so the box is flimsy, but the cartridge and case fit nicely into it. Although I want to fix some things like how the spines look, I like how it turned out. Not sure if I'd want to make roughly 70 of these boxes for my games though as that'd be a lot of time and printer ink.

Saw this on my Youtube recommended videos by TopSpot123 and thought it was a really neat idea for an alternative way to store Nintendo's handheld games and other loose carts for other systems. Even Virtual Boy games get mentioned at 13:50.

I want to try this even though it kind of looks like a lot of work.

Strange ... it's working on my new 3DS (with system software version 11.4). Region settings doesn't seem to be the problem - all 4 videos are available worldwide, my Youtube account says.
- Which 3DS system software are You using?
- Did you try other Youtube/Youtube3D videos?
You can find more 3D videos here: https://www.youtube.com/user/3D


I'm using a New 3DSXL with version 11.5.0-38U. I was able to watch the 3D videos you linked no problem along with VectrexRoli's 3D videos.

Youtube 3D unfortunetly sucks since it was last "updated" - for me (firefox v.54 on windows) it only works with red/green glasses and I also have to flip them. It doesn't support my 3D monitor any longer
Luckily, it still works on the Nintendo 3DS! Not in the official YouTube app though (that also sucks) but in the 3DS' built-in internet browser (you probably have to adjust the 3D settings).


Looks awesome! Unfortunately I couldn't watch the video on my New 3DS (clicked on the large parallax version along with the others, but all of them said "this video is not available.")
