Thanks for sharing ! Glad it's working fine.
It never happened but I'm always a bit worried that a weak solder point might crack because of shocks and temperature differences when shipping hand-assembled boards.

Thanks also for reminding me about the 5V line info. I was ready to add it to the final instructions but since I have to make another revision of the board, I'll add a "SCART switch voltage" pad on it directly.

RunnerPack: I do have troubles seeing artificial depth in 3D movies, polarized or active. The 3DS and the similar lenticular advertisment displays work, but it still isn't great. Only the VB really worked for me.
That's why I asked other people to try the anaglyph output, but maybe they also had a similar "handicap".

Technically speaking, it could be done on my board with just an additionnal wire and maybe a larger CPLD. Might try proposing it for people who are sure that the effect works for them.

I wonder if that's because the VB lets you adjust the IPD, and that you actually have to have the IPD set "wrong" to see it right. I also wonder if the VB could be used to "correct" your eyes to make other 3D displays work better by adjusting the IPD gradually over a period of time.

If it ends up being cheaper than two of the standard boards, I would seriously consider getting one or two.

I'm getting one of these soon! Is there anyone in the US that I could pay to install it into my Virtual Boy while retaining full VB functionality? (Got a runnerpak ribbon cable fixed unit)

I got a nice package from france a while ago.
The VGA Version works great so far.
I tried it on a shitty Projector on the house wall.
Picture was aprox 3 meters. Very cool :D

Anyway, I noticed, that for some reason there are a few pixels cut from the bottom. Is this supposed to be?

Otherwise awesome work!
With two projectors I could propably even project a 3D anaglyph picture.

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.

Are you saying you have an NTSC display with RGB inputs, but it doesn't have SCART, and you don't know the pinout? A make/model, or even a photo of the back, would help…

Or are you just trying to come up with some way to display the signal the converter is generating? You can get 15KHz RGB (aka arcade CGA) to YPbPr/VGA/HDMI converters at the usual online retailers.

@furrtek
do you consider also a scart PAL version?

I ask because in this very case PAL 50Hz would make sense.
The VB also works with 50 Hz so we could display it native.

The funny thing is, in 2005 or so, I always wondered why the official Nintendo Video Boy and I also think the other DevBoxes with TV Out had only PAL. This was also mentioned in the IS documents for this stuff.
Back then I was just not realizing the thing but yeah Nintendo just did it in PAL and just ditched any Pre or Post Processing with that move. So a Dev (back then) in the US would need a Multi Norm TV to display it correctly.

I haven't gotten around to wiring mine up just yet.

I'm thinking I'd like to use a header instead of soldering individual wires. What pitch/size header would I need, and what awg wire should I be using?

Since these are no longer being offered by the creator has anyone else started manufacturing these kits? I would still love to pick one up!

I think Mobius Strip Tech (the person who made the FURGB boards for Voultar) has kicked around the idea of taking up this project and making boards. Perhaps if enough people show interest to him, he may make them on request. I don't have any personal knowledge, that's just what I remember him saying.

He's got a website and an active Twitter account. I'm new here and don't know the rules on linking. I don't want to link and possibly get in trouble, but you should be able to find him via a search for his name.
