I'd love to get my hands on a Flashboy cartridge too. I can't wait for that new batch to get done. Is it possible to preorder at this point, or is it too early yet?

No preorders yet. I will probably put up a preorder form when I know a less vague release date.

Thats really sad.

I already got my own flashboy - it's a pretty cool stuff!
Only "mistake": batterys are empty very fast. So I wait for my own adaptor tap - and everything becomes alrigt!

Playing VB with batteries is no good idea anyways. ;-)

Are you sure the FlashBoy drains more power than a standard cart? I made no tests, but I always thought it was the other way round.

Yes, I'm sure MY flashboy uses much more power than other cards do. First sixpack of batterys was empty after only one hour and the batterys got pretty warm.

In 48 hours I used more batterys I bought in the whole month before.

Now I have to wait for the adaptor tap
But this is no problem to me. I'm so happy to own the flashboy.

Cool stuff!

If the processor (or whatever it is that handles the USB) doesn't go into hibernation when no USB-cable is connected I imagine it will draw more power than a normal cartridge. Those masked roms also usually draw less power than a programmable rom. Using uv-eproms, the 27C160 kind drains batteries pretty quickly - that's why I made my own adapter.


You can use a USB-charger that plugs in your wall outlet and power your V.B. with a long enough USB cable while playing (don't connect from a computer it's not capable of delivering enough current).

Only backdraw there is that you can't use the on/off button (but who cares).
