VBjin, GoodVBoy and Pong Invaders

Only few days after the new coding competition started, we already saw the first entry. "PongInvaders" by our new member usch (have a look at the User ID ) combines Pong/Arkanoid and Space Invaders into a fun new game concept. You'll be able to follow further development of this project in the release thread. Welcome to the community, usch!

In other news, a new Virtual Emulator has been released. It's called VBjin and is a merge of the PCEjin emulator with the Virtual Boy core from Mednafen 0.9, so it's basically Mednafen with a nice GUI. You can download and follow the project on its Google Code page.

One thing that I've missed is that a new version of GoodVBoy has been released some weeks ago. Version 3.1415 adds most of the newer homebrew releases, but for some reason misses BLOX 2.

VBjin runs a bit slower/choppier on my system than Mednafen, but that's probably because of the really annoying console window in the background that prints numbers and other gibberish whenever I press a key

The GUI is appreciated (but not really necessary) and I'll definitely keep an eye on this one!

Also: welcome to the site, "usch the 1337"

VBjin is missing some key features, shutting off anaglyph mode and change the colors of the anaglyph mode. Now it's just set to red/blue. Other than that I agree that it's slow.

Well, I didn't really keep my eye on it, but thanks to dasi (via the IRC channel) I know there's a "new-and-improved" version of VBJin.

And, thanks to clicking the "virtualboy" tag on their site, I found out about the "RealityBoyWii" project:
