WELCOME TO PLANET VIRTUAL BOY!
HTTP://WWW.PLANETVB.COM

Welcome to the third dimension! On this site you will learn everything about Nintendo's Virtual Reality experiment, the Virtual Boy. Released back in 1995 only in Japan and North America, the system failed all along the line and disappeared from the market less than a year later, quietly and without any official word. Only 22 games were released for the Virtual Boy during its short lifespan. Here we want to build a memorial for this unique oddity of videogame history. Dedicated to its brilliant creator, Gunpei Yokoi.

Project(s):VB

I'm in the middle of my A-level exams (I hope this is the correct translation of "Abitur") and finally found some spare time to update the site again.
Breaking news of the last weeks were the renaming of Pat's Virtual Boy Page to Project:VB and the announcement of a new Virtual Boy page by a guy called Hangtime! The site, which is tentatively called "Project Fourth Dimension: The Red Dimension" will be about "modding the Virtual Boy and developing for it" and should be launching these days. More soon!
Besides updating the Links, i added some new articlescans from EGM: 11/94, 10/95, 11/95 and 4/96. Some are still waiting to be scanned...
The following two weeks I'll have to prepare mayself for the history examination. I suck at history, so updates will still be rare, sorry ;)

Red Dragon released

After the release of ViBE there has been another cool release called Red Dragon. The emulator by Frostgiant is basically using the Reality Boy 0.7 source code, but adds some enhancements such as GUI layer, save states and reconfigurable keys and is compatible with Windows, DOS and Linux. Also look forward for sound support in future updates! Along with this release I did a major update to the Emulators section.
Furthermore the Highscores section has become a little bit more interesting because of the new Gamer Top10. It lists the 10 most successful highscore hunters, by giving 100 points for a highscore, 70 for a second place, 50 for a third and so on for each game. These points are summed up to get the Top10. Send your highscores to scores@vr32.de to participate :)

ViBE released!

My prayers were heard, yesterday the long-awaited ViBE Virtual Boy emu for Macintosh was surprisingly released! The emulator developed by Richard Bannister und Gil Pedersen had been in the making for quite a long time, but after promising screens and videos it suddenly disappeared from the homepage of the developers a few month ago. It was considered dead by most Virtual Boy fans, so these news are even more pleasing... Hopefully it was no April Fools joke. The present version 1.0b1 is an early release, but it's said to emulate all VB games and updates are also on the way. So, if you're on of those lucky Mac owners, grab your copy now at www.bannister.org.

In other news we now have a chat online, after DogP came up with the idea on the board. Our idea is to install the chat on all Virtual Boy pages to give Virtual Boy fans a chance to meet in a general chatroom. You can also reach it at chat.vr32.de. Let's see how this develops...

Last but not least I want to let you all know that the PHSCologram is not (longer?) for sale.
