Original Post

Chris is tied up with exams for the next 3 months. So, I will be both making and distributing them now.

If you want one, you need to send me a donor cart. This will guarantee you get a cart (a sort of pre-order).

I will be making these on a one-by-one basis, so be prepared to wait at least 2 weeks from the donor cart getting to me and your FlashBoy+ being dispatched.

The package will consist of the cart and USB cable (no box) the new price of $100 (+shipping) reflects this.

Anyway, if you are interested, please Email me at –

Thankyou

FlashBoy+ arrived!

Thank you so much Richard, I apologize for getting worried as I understand you were busy.

I installed Bound High on it with no problem at all.

No problem !

Glad it got there OK.

Are FlashBoy+’s still being made? I’ve been wanting one for years, and if there still being made I’ll save up and buy one.

Yes they are. All orders are handled through the maker. You can contact him HERE.

Thank you.

Just got mine in the mail yesterday. Thanks so much, this is awesome! Bound High is so much fun. Glad I can play it.

I am glad you got one, they are really awesome. I use mine for Jack Bros, currently.

my favorite thing are game patches. translation, hacks, etc. i wish i had asked for stand alone carts before the whole bound high ebay fiasco. its also really fun to play around with homebrew.

I am glad I got a Bound High cart before it was ruined for everyone else.

Do you have an idea on how many of those you can fit on the flashboy? It would be great to fit the whole library.

1 game at a time 🙂

Drat. Is that to keep the whole thing legit?

i am not an expert on the design and i would hate to speak for richard. i see it as a limitation on the type of technology used, and perhaps a reason of cost.

It’s legit anyway, as it doesn’t contain commercial ROM’s until the user decides to put one on there.

The cart contains just 2MByte flash, so yes, you are limited to loading one game onto it at a time.

i finally got courage and im interested to buy flashcart if minestorm still make them ? i pm him too : )

Got mine yesterday, shipping was lot faster than i expected, thanks for that : P Also cart works like a charm and looks good. so thanks minestorm for your time and job. : )

I got my FlashBoy last week, and it works great. I can’t believe I’m playing Bound High!

Oh, and the 3D Printed case is pretty cool!

Hey, Disk Tusk or someone ever make a Box for the Flashboy?

Also, I would LOVE a Flash Boy + that could fit more then one game (the ++). Perhaps roughly enough room for… 22 games? haha. But I can only imagine that is requested every other time someone opens their mouth on the subject of the FB+ and I’m just grateful That I finally got to try and fail at Gundam.

Sure: http://www.planetvb.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=4728&forum=7

I requested a FB+ box from Benjamin Stevens (seeing that you’re also in the USA) not too long ago, and couldn’t have been happier with the transaction – he’s very good at keeping you up-to-date about when and how he’s shipping out the box, and everything I received was in top-notch condition.

Very trustworthy and recommended. It looks great on the shelf next to the other games. 🙂
