There is even a dedicated thread for it in the Flashboy section

No problem!
I've got two VB's I need to get solder fixed. On the one the problem only really crops up when there's a lot of stuff on the screen, simpler scenes it seems to be unnoticeable. I definitely gotta get around to doing it though, i've been putting it off too long!

I love Red Alarm, it's one of my favorite games for the system. I already have a thing for vector graphics but Red Alarm just takes them and the atmosphere to the next level, so well done!

The console really is better then people make it out to be. For something from 1995, it's got nice crisp screens, decent graphics power and sound capabilities. It also just feels so Nintendo like =P I still really like mine, even years later.

1: The IPD knob is usually a bit stiff, or "weighty", that's normal.
2: It's always a good idea to solder fix for future proofing but nothing wrong with waiting till they give you issues, or waiting until you're ok with not using it for a while. I'd just enjoy your system for now since you just got it :)
3: Is the crack in the stand "medallion"? (the center part with Nintendo on it). If so, then yes, more use will make the crack worse. However, to mitigate this issue on mine I used a small black zip tie and wrapped it just under the medallion. Tighten it enough so that it takes the stress off the stand. After this you can use it without worry of making the crack worse.

Thank you! I certainly did, so relaxing, and spent a lot of time on my little boat. Loved it.

I got some time in on your game, I haven't beat it yet, though. I will work on that =P

I must say, for a 6 week game, this is pretty varied in terms of visuals with a decent amount of gameplay. Well done! Also, the humor is awesome, I found myself chuckling at the dialogue. Finding that magazine on the shelf was definitely funny. I'll definitely be playing again to go through and finish it now that I got all the mechanics down.

Actually, funny story, I was playing it earlier today, probably around 5:00 or so. I played for maybe 45 minutes or something. Then I got up to just take a break, and go and visit the spouse, leaving it on, using batteries. Well, good ol Sidetrack Mcgee here totally spaced cause something sidetracked me. Only visiting this site now at 11:00 I just remembered I was playing it. It was still there, humming away, lol. I was gonna keep playing, but it's late, hence the finish it later remark. Anyway, I guess your battery optimizations worked, if it wasn't optimized I'm sure it woulda killed my already used batteries for sure.

Welcome, Falkor!

The Virtual Boy is a fun system to collect for. Once you realize it came out before the Gameboy Pocket you can start to see that it was actually a pretty good system for the time. Compared to the GB, it has a powerful chipset, better sound, and much crisper screens with no ghosting.

I'm sure you'll have fun with it.

You can get semi decent results with a DSLR, but it's impossible to get the entire picture in focus. I'm pretty happy with these video capture results it provided though.

Smaller lenses can fit the entire screen into the focus area, so some cell phone cameras can work well. It's definitely not easy to get a decent shot though.

Thanks! This is my first time making a game with any kind of 3D depth, I think it turned out okay too! The real praise goes to Nyrator if you enjoy the graphics, since he did almost everything you see.

I'll be sure to post an update when I've fixed the framerate issue!


Well with the pair of you together it looks like you've churned out a very nice little game.

Definitely looking forward to any update builds :)
