Hi everyone! Havent posted on this thread in a long time, but it's the bomb when it comes to Virtual Boy stuff :)

I got a Virtual Boy Power Pack, which slides onto the VB controller, now its a US Virtual Boy... and i think the AC Power Pack thingy is Japan...

Now i dont know what AC adapter i plug into the tap, sick of using batteries and do not want to fry my VB with the wrong voltage

I live in Australia so having a NTSC Virtual Boy, and i assume a Jap AC Tap... and only PAL related AC adapters (super nintendo ac adapters etc)

What should i do? I heard the Super Nintendo/Nintendo ones work, but i tried my super nintendo one and had no luck, it didnt power on - maybe the VB ac adapter Tap isnt getting a good enough connection on the controller??

Any help would be magnificent - thank you!

:)

Mat

Haha, i had just spotted that about 20 minutes ago and was about to post it but ya beat me to it!

Is this some official product or is this just made by someone who wanted to play it on the TV? it wouldnt be able to produce 3D would it like the emulators? it would just be red and black like the VB but on the TV with no 3d effects yeh?

50,000 dollars is alot!!! is it just the quality of the photo or is that a hint of yellow in the game when its on the TV?

Very interesting...

yeah thats true, im thankful for it, i still play it as well, its in my VB right now! lol, besides i think if you posted it saying there were 2 and you snagged them both for that price then some people will get cranky lol, but it was a nice change from paying full price on a game, i actually clicked on the link when you had that thread and i was in shock that one was still available to buy!

Yeah I know Vertical Force isn't to expensive but when I bought it the only U.S versions of the game that I was able to find were about twenty dollars more than the import version and they were just the cartridges without the dust caps, So I figured that I would get the import version since it was complete, cheaper, and plays the same as the american version. Space Squash I always wanted the game but never really planed on getting it, until I was on ebay late one night and I found a boxed copy of the game for $15.00 so I happily bought it, as for the rest of the Japan only games im not really to interested in them.


fantastic collection mate! i still have like 5 US games to buy, 3d tetris, vertical force, golf, waterworld and jack bros :) - i recently got nesters funky bowling as well!

As for space squash, i got that game as well thanks to you - remember the guy selling the space squash had 2 available and you bought one and posted on here that there was one for sale?? i snagged it up and was forever thankful that you told me about it! i absolutely love the game and never really had the money to spend on it at the time! I wont forget this generous favour you did! You coulda bought them both and sold one for more :D

Thanks :) and that sounds like a nice cabinet! its a pitty they're so big, i really like them but finding room for such a thing is tough!

That's cool that its similar to virtual boy Panic Bomber, i might give it a go on a emulator as well!

Thanks for the comment!

I recently bought a Neo Geo Multi Video System (MVS) Arcade Machine!!

The reason i posted this thread is well... the cabinet is known for its unique redness colour cabinet, the virtual boy is also red, colour wise and game wise! and there is one game i'd like to talk about! (i have the Australian version arcade cabinet, American version cabinets are red as well)

Here is a link to some photos of mine (it looks different now as i have cleaned it up a bit more and its all good and working now as well)

http://s953.photobucket.com/albums/ae ... nt=neogeo6slotcabinet.jpg

Anyway, the other thing i wanted to chat about is with Panic Bomber, this game is on the Virtual Boy and well... i noticed it was released on the Neo Geo MVS Arcade Machine as Panic Bomber as well, heres a review on it!

http://www.neogeoforlife.com/viewpage.php?page_id=96

It looks fairly similar to the Virtual Boy Panic Bomber, gameplay wise.. i've never played it but im sure there is footage of the game on youtube as well!

Does anyone have a Neo Geo MVS or ever played this game? I'm interested! What are your thoughts?

Thanks :)

I've heard of these, the magazine AVGN was showing them from would probably be a Nintendo Power magazine showing official nintendo merchandise, i have no idea what its called, it looks pretty cool though !

AVGN actually owns one, you can see it in a few of his videos, in one of his latest ones (Bugs bunny's crazy castle) episode at around 9:40 and 12:22 in the episode you see it and they get real close to the nintendo storage cupboard for the NES (i dunno what its called lol)

hope it helps, id say its a uncommon item, not sure if its rare but it would be hard to obtain one due to its size and being uncommon and all. I'd certainly like one!

i love the sega mega cd, sonic CD, lords of thunder, robo aleste, snatcher, the terminator... the list goes on, some of them games have great soundtracks and unique gameplay.. i really want to get the sega multi mega (mega cd and megadrive in a small compact unit). i only have the model 2 sega cd.

the FMV games are a unique experience now, like the virtual boy. i mean when i heard about watching video footage and switching from cameras and setting of traps i couldnt wait to play night trap / double switch. some of them are lame and bad quality though, some are alright here and there though if you know what i mean

yeah im 16 and i would have only been 3 years old when the virtual boy came out lol. i just got a sudden urge to collect games and systems now. I was a mainly nintendo fan with the nintendo 64 and a sony fan with the playstation. never had any sega stuff and i have been collecting so much of that now, all the accessories, unique games it really makes me wonder why they didnt do better then nintendo. Some of the accessories and add-ons are awesome like tv tuners for a sega game gear, dreamcast accessories like the fishing rod with motion sensor, the sega master system and its 3d glasses, for the time they were pretty good i gotta admit. i guess back in the day some of the things like the sega 32x werent that good though and that made sega look bad, id say the megadrive, master system and dreamcast were there best efforts.
