I want a link cable that links to the PC and connects with people over the Internet whom are also connected the same way because I do not know a single other person in my area with a VB.

Someone been asking about link cables so thought I'd bump the post back into the list.
Quite alot has been done, just not quite finished. There have been some manufacturing issues, not entirely sure what the current status is with it.

I printed this today. It's one half of Hedgetrimmers link plug design.

It definitely looks nice and like a real VB item.

Awesome! Looks great so far!

How durable is the plastic?

Yes, seems OK.

Two identical halves fit together to make the complete plug.

However, the design needs a few tweaks, as the holes for the prongs are a little too small and the plug end is too large to fit the VB's link port.

Great work in the VB community.

Put me down for one. What will be the contact material? In that price range gold-plated wouldn't be too much to ask (nor would a few microns of gold be very expensive)...

I do have two VB's, bet I could easily find a second player; never had kids, but my nephew is addicted to games.

Just wanted to bump this thread... we're still trying to make this happen. I think the new simpler design should be more easily manufacturable... I guess we went a bit overboard with the initial design.

And I've just about got a PCB designed to go inside the housing, for the USB link... I'll probably get that board manufactured as soon as it's ready, so I can test that design.
