So my nice new NTSC RGB VirtualTap has arrived! However it seems as I should have done my research- the only output wiring diagram I can find is for a SCART connector, which I don't use being in Canada/North America.

Google hasn't been helpful in looking for other options, so can any video-format savvy folks help me out? Thanks.

I've mentioned this before, but here's the box I made to store my loose carts. Takes a few seconds to find the game you want but it works.

One of these days I'll make a sturdier version out of hardboard/thin plywood.

The only thing I have planned for Saturday is entering the cosplay contest (Roger Wilco from Space Quest) so anything before 5 PM is fine with me.

I'll be attending the PRGE as well- I certainly wouldn't mind meeting other VB fans (even though I'm not terribly sociable!)

Not a game, but last year I found out about official Nintendo/Mario cabinets and such (made in the late 80s I think?), which I had never even heard of before. A little while later I managed to snag one in good condition for a reasonable price!

It's designed to hold a NES on one of the right shelves, games on the bottom, a TV on top with a storage area on the left for accessories.

Thanks for the suggestions! I recently bought Quarth, and that one is really fun and addictive for such a simple concept.

Thanks for the suggestions so far!

Just to clarify on my first post, I'll happily take any GBC & GBA recommendations too.

So, upon the advice of a friend, I've decided to expand my GB game collection while prices are still relatively low. So people of the VB community, are there any GB games you would recommend? Any hidden gems I should snap up?

Wow, that's a great deal! I paid much more for mine years ago. In case anyone's interested, the dimensions of the medallion are 2 cm wide and 2.5 mm thick.

One of the good things about collecting stuff from Nintendo's toy era is even though they're rare and sought-after, they're not as 'mainstream' as collecting their early video games- meaning that you can still get great deals on them if you shop around. (That probably won't last forever though, so get 'em while you can!) The Love Tester is an exception (which always goes for a fortune), as well as some of their later, lesser-produced toys.

I made a box (from thin cardboard) to hold my loose cartridges- painted red and black, of course! I plan to make a new one from thin (1/4") plywood soon.
