No, these are carts people wrote homebrew ROMs to...
As a owner of both the Virtualboy and the Flashboy Plus I have mixed feelings about this.
I always like these obscure homebrew inventions totally, but sometimes its so hard to obtain them... Like with Rhea, Phoebe, DCEMU and PS-IO.
I paid 100€ for the Flashboy and it is not able to play this Street Fighter game. A "retail" Version for 20€ or so(without "deluxe" packaging) would be fine, I paid that price for the "Bound HIgh" custom cart.
The link cable would also be ok to buy or to build it myself.
BUT to find someone with a second Virtualboy system nearby with a second SF cart? close to impossible. ^^
The game sure is impressive with the limited VB capabilities, but compared to regular SF the VB controller sucks.
Yes there are flashcards, the one Evilengine quoted above.
the Flashboy+ has a save slot, whereas the first version Flashboy didn't have one.
Heh, I own Flashboy #05 and man, I was so pissed when I heard that the Flashboy+ came out despite really only 1 game that took advantage of a save file.
These days when you buy a Virtual Boy, only 2 things are essential, 1)getting the display fixed with a good solder job and 2)a flash cart. Eventually and unfortunately every Virtual Boy out there will suffer from the glitchy display issue due to the glue that was used inside.
But the people in the video aren't using flash cards....
you are right barnwey. the hf rom was too large to fit on the flashboy+ board so a new board was designed. this new board is not reflashable and so all hf carts currently known to exist are not flash kits themselves.
if you are interested, here is some additional info: http://www.mellottsvrpage.com/index.php/virtual-boy-hyper-fighting/
Ooh! Thank you for the link and info!
This is pretty cool, didn't know the VB's could link up with eachother....or even had the ability.
But now with this now your friends can break they're necks with you
There's also already a Street Fighter game for 3ds, which would seem to make an emulated VB homebrew of SF a little bit redundant except as a novelty. But hey, if that's the sort of thing that gets people excited, well, at least you're not doing drugs or something harmful instead.
Why are you replying to mine and saying that? I was answering a question someone else posted... Though, the Street Fighter game for 3DS is kinda slow IMO -_-
You clearly never used a Virtual Boy
The Virtual Boy might kinda suck... a lot... but this is still awesome news. Makes me wish I owned one. At least until, you know, it gave me a headache in a matter of seconds. Then I'd regret everything.
Great. Now I want a virtual boy.
No personal experience, but it's what it was 2 years ago for all I know
got 2 VB and 1 FB+ but need a cable and some know how ... any good tutorials for this ?
