    While still highly considered a proof-of-concept, PlanetVB forum member Danielps has released source code for a Red Dragon 3DS Virtual Boy emulator. Guy Perfect, the person behind the coveted VB Sacred Tech Scrolls, has shown interest in making a VB EMU for the 3DS as well. Thanks to Smealum's release, we may see an optimized VB emulator on the 3DS one day soon.

    I hope the controls actually work on this one unlike the PSP version. Really want to play Virtual Boy Warioland in proper 3D.

    We don't have those sections for front page news. It is homebrew news, so its posted in that area of GBAtemp news.

    I have never played a virtual boy, hell I've never viewed the console in real life. Can't wait to use this emulator on the 3DS when it's in a playable state. Nice work!

    I've got it compiled and 'working', though it doesn't work too far. Opens, shows this, then freezes.

    On the plus side, at least got installed as a .cia with a funky banner I made

    Did you copy the contents of a ROM into a byte pointer called vbrom_bin in a file called vbrom_bin.h? It should also contain vbrom_bin_size as the size of that array as an unsigned int. NOFS is currently defined by default in main.h, the comment next to it says that reading files from the SD card is currently broken so they have to be included this way.

    I hadn't done any of that, no, there wasn't any mention of it in any readme and I neglected to check the code for comments, I just assumed even if it didn't load a game it'd run in some capacity. Any chance you'd mind describing the steps you mentioned in a more noob-friendly way?
