Thank you RetroDan for installing this for me. I received it today and although I had a slight issue out of the box it was easily worked out (again thank you RetroDan for troubleshooting with me). I cannot wait to have the kids play so I can watch on the screen shouting commands!!

I'm happy that you're pleased, and future installs will benefit from the small teething pains that you so graciously put up with.

Jealous. I hope someone makes an alternative in the near future. Still kicking myself for missing this initially.

Andrew Borman (a video game preservationists) at The Strong Museum in Rochester, NY spoke with me about wanting a way to capture VB game-play. If anyone would be interested in a donation, he can be reached here: aborman@museumofplay.org

Cheers!

I'll probably do a run of these myself. I'm also working on an upgraded version in what little free time I can spare.

As long as it eventually gets a run, I'd be thrilled and would order one immediately! What would the upgrade being?

For the time being, that's a secret.

If you do a upgraded version, try to implement a 50hz Scart RGB mode. VB is 50Hz and all PAL TVs are. The official Video Boy was also only in PAL. (Can 50Hz work with VGA too?)
That "native" mode should avoid most side effects the 60Hz conversation has.
Also while I can solder myself, I do not really like it.
The solder pads for the RGB/VGA cable on the VirtualTap were quite small. Maybe you can make them a little bigger. :)

Optional:
- maybe it should be possible to choose any color for the picture
- board with input for both screens and two VGA outputs to connect for example 2 projectors in order to get a 3D picture.

Optional crazy:
Take a new 3DS XL screen and hook the VB up to it :D

BTW, does somebody here is able to burn one of this small chips
for me, so that I can disconnect the mirror unit from the board?

It's at least eighteen months out. Got a lot of irons in the fire.
