Welcome! You will find that this is a great community overall, very helpful and insightful most of the time with a rare heated discussion only once in a while ;)

Excellent! Heated discussions involve multiple opinions and views. It's always nice to see people using their noodles, not just following what the last guy said. More than one way to skin a cat.

So far I have:
-Mario tennis
-Mario clash
-pin ball
-red alarm
-bomberman
- nesters bowling
- teleroboxer
-wario

I'll be purchasing a flash boy in the near future as well.

I actually scooped a complete virtual boy console for $85 Canadian bucks today. It needs the soldering fix for the ribbon, but I have already educated myself on the repair, and have already salvaged my current virtual boy with method. I plan to give the other one to my brother in law for Christmas, or hold onto it in anticipation for the VB link cable (if that's still in the books).


I am looking for tetris, waterworld and jack bro's, but who isn't lol

Wow, good score! I highly recommend the flash boy, there's lots of great homebrews and stuff to play!

As far as I know the link cable is still cookin'. Congratulations on your solder repair too! If you were able to do that yourself, you could definitely make your own link cable.

Is there any home brewed link play games available? If so then it would be worth an attempt for sure. I was already going to buy a flash boy... better make it 2???lol

I put 6 hours into soldering the ribbons. It was my first go, so there was a lot of back and forth between testing and soldering. I was about to give up but gave it one more attempt and I finally got it. Lots of patience required for it. pretty delicate stuff. I lost a couple of the tracer wires, but filled the voids with solder to ensure some conductivity. I'm ready for round 2 with my vb that is in transit at the moment. Feels good to have salvaged such an awesome piece of Nintendo.
