Some delay here on builds. USPS lost the package and the housings are being remade.

Dude you’re not alone. They lost two packages on me last week. They are the absolute worst. Sorry they screwed you :(

Yea, seems like it is postal chaos right now. I have a modded SNES mini (the original system redesign, not the SNES Classic) that I sent off to get repaired and is currently lost somewhere in Cleveland. :/ Sucks they lost the housings, but at least it wasn't the controller sockets I guess.

Wow, that's pretty bad. This is the first one I've ever had them lose.

OK, here's the first unit. USPS found the housing package and redelivered. However Mouser sent my microcontroller board order out of country so there will be another few days delay in getting orders out for this. Despite the delivery issues, things came out really well especially with a red and black Anker USB cable.

The adapter shows up as a gamepad within Windows. There are 3 different mappings. By default all VB controller buttons get mapped to digital buttons as the VB controller is 14 digital buttons. I added two other mappings which can be selected by holding the A or B button when the adapter is powered up. Holding the A button down during power up maps the left d-pad to analog X,Y and everything else digital. Holding the B button down during power up maps the left d-pad to analog X,Y and the right d-pad to analog rotation with everything else to digital buttons.

The housing came out nice. There are some very small ridges that appear on the outside due to internal features that I wasn't expecting but still looks clean. Really happy with how things turned out for a first pass at this housing.

I'm not providing the red/black Anker cable so here's a link if you're looking for one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00S ... age_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

So that completes it for this project. I'll be shipping out units for this in about a week after those microcontroller boards show up. This has motivated me to do an update to my Power Glove adapter too. :-)

Is it too late to get on the list for one of these adapters? Be amazing to try out a Virtual Boy controller on the PC. I might even try it on my Switch just to see if it will work. For science, of course.

I can do another small batch if there is interest. The initial 5 units are already accounted for. Looks like there is interest for maybe another 5. If you're interested then send me a PM.

If anyone is also interested in a Nintendo Power Glove version, I'll have those in about 2-3 weeks as well. Housing already designed.
