Since the FlashBoy is on the horizon...

Is there any chance that maybe someone on the forum could contribute one or more of his/her games from their collection to one on the forum to allow them to dump the games that have yet to be publically available ?

I think it would only be fair if :

1. We contributed money to the cause (or the VBer could just be a true friend )

2. Allow the game to only be downloadable here and only here to users registered 6 months or more w/ 10 posts(as i dont have yet.)

If you want to send me some of your rare games, I'd be glad to dump them for you ;) .

KJ4860, have you ever thought that the ultra rare games and prototypes might already be dumped, but their ROMs are not available to the public? For example, as you might know, the original Virtual Lab seems to have a bug which makes the Virtual Boy reboot, but I have read somewhere (I think it was on this vr32 forum more than a year ago) that they found the bug and fixed it to get the game to work correctly. Where do you think they fixed it? I'm also waiting for the FlashBoy, so apart from my belief that those ROMs are dumped but won't be made public, I would also like to have them and play with them on the FlashBoy (when FlashBoy is available, of course)

i searched here and everywhere on the net a few nights ago and may have saw the same post you did. plenty of listings led to here and they mentioned private dumps of the 4. i imagine that these dumps are for their personal safety (if the original cart is lost) or they dump it for a group they are in, like one of those japanese game rings. i would hope that someone will share the games that are most wanted by the VB community after the flashboy is released. it isnt like we are gaining anything from a dump..we just get to play what they will bank off of one day. no reason to keep the game to yourself

Yes, but as soon as the game ROMs are publicly available, the ultra-rare games will lose some of their value, so I don't think the owners of those games would like to see the ROMs publicly available. I own all except Virtual Bowling and SD Gundam (I'm sure you know this by the other forum posts I've made ), and of course I'd love to play these two games just to see them, but I don't think that private dumps will be made publicly available.

thats why i mentioned they should only be released here to people that have met the forum requirements. i dont necessarily see the carts losing value, i think the original carts are still way more collectible than the roms by far. the hardcore vb collectors will still shell out a heavy penny for the most sought after games even if they are available at the most public level. Look at neo geo for example. those roms are beyond easily accessible, yet there is still a giant fan following of collectors. The same goes for SNES, NES, etc....but when you look up earthbound or chrono trigger on ebay, they still have a high price tag.

I know, I'm a collector and I wouldn't mind that the ROMs of the games were available to all, but not everyone thinks the same. Nonetheless, I hope we are lucky and get the ROMs available to play on the FlashBoy (but I'm pessimistic about it... )
