Looks nice, I'd love to have one, but I personally find even half that BIN an insane price when TV out kits are already possible.

I meant to say - that other Intelligent Systems 3D or multiscreen capture kits indeed have that option for side by side screens, with various dipswitch settings and accompanying PC software, so I'd like to think that this does also.

Based on what appears in the VUE Debugger Guide, I would not expect that the Video Boy could show side-by-side screens or have any other options besides what is listed in the guide. It seems to be able to show red and green anaglyph images, as RunnerPack mentioned, and it can also show the left-eye image alone and the right-eye image alone. That is probably all that it can do, so its uses are very limited.

Actually, now that I looked at the Japanese text more closely, it seems that the left-eye screen is displayed on the TV in red and that the right-eye screen is displayed on the TV in green, which is the opposite of what I wrote earlier, and I wrote that based on the rough English translation of section 11 of the VUE Debugger guide, which appears on this site. Nevertheless, since "左目用画像と右目用画像" is in the same order as "赤色と緑色" in the guide, I would conclude that it is the left-eye screen or image that would appear on the TV in red, and the right-eye screen or image would appear on the TV in green. Here is how I would translate section 11 of the VUE Debugger Guide:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

11) ビデオボーイVUE
ビデオボーイVUEにPAL方式ビデオ入力またはRGB入力が用意されているテレビモニタを接続するだけで、バーチャルボーイの立体画像を擬似的にテレビモニタに表示します。バーチャルボーイのゲームカセットをビデオボーイVUEに実装すると、左目用画像と右目用画像をそれぞれ赤色と緑色でテレビモニタに表示することができます。また、左目用のみの画像や右目用のみの画像を選択して表示することも可能です。
複数人数で同一画面の確認ができるので、デモンストレーション時、仕様打ち合わせ時、デバッグ時などに威力を発揮します。

11) Video Boy VUE
Simply connect a television monitor, which is provided with a PAL format video input or RGB input, to the Video Boy VUE, in order to display the Virtual Boy's stereoscopic images on the television monitor in a simulated manner. When you insert a Virtual Boy game cartridge into the Video Boy VUE, it will be able to display the left-eye image and the right-eye image on the television monitor in red and green, respectively. In addition, it is also possible to select and display only the image for the left eye and only the image for the right eye.
Since the same screen can be checked by a multiple number of people, this will be quite useful during debugging, during a design meeting, at the time of a demonstration, etc.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

So with the very limited instructions and possible uses, combined with the fact that the eBay seller doesn't even seem to know about the two-screen option (and he mentions that he has never used the RGB port), combined with the fact that the only switch on the outside of the Video Boy is the on/off switch, it would seem that the green screen would be displayed by plugging in the green cord of the RGB connector and the red screen would be displayed by plugging in the red cord. If you want to remove one of the Virtual Boy's screens from the TV, then you would simply unplug the respective cord. Of course, it seems that the AV port doesn't allow for the two-screen option, since all of its video input goes through a single cord. It also seems that there would be no way to use the Video Boy itself to adjust the parallax of the two stereoscopic screens or at all set them up side-by-side, so such would have to be done prior to flashing the test ROM to the cart and inserting it into the Video Boy, which would simply display what is already flashed to the cart.

I can confirm that at least with the VUE Debugger you can get red/green anaglyph from the PAL AV OUT, no need to use RGB OUT for that. You change between the modes using command lines in the pc software. I don't know about the video boy, but it seems likely they used the same components since it's in the same series... Maybe it has internal dip switches for that, if there is no pc connection?

Thanks Ben, is there any more detailed information about those magazines available? All I know is that it is a "fanzine", but is it known who produced that, how could you buy that back then and how did the target group look like? So obviously there were also others types of those fanzines available that were not Virtual Boy related?

Sorry, but I am not aware of any detailed information in the English language about what you are looking for. The most pertinent information about these magazines is probably that which is contained in these magazines themselves in the Japanese language, but I myself have no plans to translate this material at this time, as such is very time-consuming for me.

I understand, I didnīt expect any translation of course, I just was curious if you already knew some more details about it. ;-)

Very nice! Too bad that shipping to Europe would cost an arm and a leg I guess, or maybe even 2! :-D
