Has anyone tried the Virtual Boy PCB yet? Does it just need a VB cart slot soldered to it, or does it need the custom pin setup from the original wired design?

The only place I've found is eBay these days.  They used to be on dx.com, but ran out of stock and have since disappeared.

I have enough PCBs and slots to produce 10 GBx adapters (which also have holes to accept an N64 slot).  Anyone want one?  I would test them with my own games after making and before sending.

I already have a GB one, but I could sure use a DS plugin, as I don't have a DS dumper yet. :P

Okay, got the GB-Cartridge slots, now I'm only missing N64 joypad connectors.
In worst case, I'll produce N64 plugins without joypad connections.

@androda

I would be interested in one of your GBx adapters. I'm assuming when you say it has holes to accept an N64 slot, I would just need to get an N64 cartridge connector and solder it in? How much would you charge for it and how would I pay?

Also, how much would you charge for just one of the extra boards that you have without the GBA connector?

@Joxer_the_Mighty

Yes, the adapters have the mounting holes for an N64 port.  I already added one to the first adapter that I made (but with no N64 games to test with, I don't know whether the N64 slot works).  Also of note: I never got around to epoxying my GBx adapter, and it works fine. Surprisingly sturdy.

I think I would want $12 per GBx adapter board plus whatever shipping method you want to pay for.  Each individual extra board would be $3 (price I paid plus 60 cents).  The blank boards come with the necessary resistor pre-installed.

I have 10 blank GBx/N64 boards available (nothing but the resistor soldered at the moment).

I'm located in the USA.

If you'd like to buy any, send me a direct message here (and I'll try to check back in a few days  :)  after there was no response in the first few weeks I didn't expect anyone to be interested)

Note: If anyone else is interested, send me a personal message.  If there's enough interest, I could try to scrounge up some more GBx plugs (hard to find these days) and make another order for boards.

Just a quick note:
More N64, SMS and GBx-Plugins are currently in production and should be finished in November.

However, the N64 doesn't have the connector ports, as they seem to be almost impossible to get in quantities less than 10,000.
