Didn't they plan to release Waterworld with multiplayer support but dropped it? It has that 9-person pseudo multiplayer option but I thought I read there was originally a planned link option....or I'm totally wrong :-p

WaterWorld would be no sense multiplayer unless you had multiple boats destroying the smokers with co-op.

I guess I pictured it more as some players being the Smokers and others being the normal players- this would probably be a different game mode like 4 on 4.

Online play will be the ultimate goal for Virtual Boy. :)

Seriously, I can't wait for something like that. It would be fun to bring my VB and laptop to a Starbucks to do online play from there. Maybe I'm just desperate for attention :)

Isn't it making things more expensive using the contacts of a female usb connector? If I'm not mistaking there are only 4 pins in 1 female USB connector. Which would mean that you need to distroy 2 USB plugs for 1 VB-link plug.

Or did you somehow find a resource for raw pins?

It may be cheaper to get finished connectors to steal the pins from than trying to get loose ones from a manufacturer.

For example a good price somewhere on a bunch of these:

From what I can read they aren't 100% happy with the shell yet, it's not just supposed to fit but hold up for multiple uses as well.

Hrm. VB connector on one end, USB on the other...

I'll look into it. If we can reliably make VB-style connectors, this should absolutely be feasible.

Maybe with an FTDI chip in between and a server program on the PC like Kaillera and whatever they are called...

Being able to play a real VB over the net with other VB owners would be quite fantastic.
