Before I continue on, I will say that I’m somewhat new to the Virtual Boy fanbase, wasn’t alive yet when it came out but I’ve tried the games, love them all, and hope to one day be able to buy the physical console.

I see a lot of talk about the flashboy, and that it allows you basically to play ROMs of homebrew games on the VB itself.

What I’m wondering is, do you need the flashboy to play them? I run the games on an emulator on the Retroarch platform and was wondering if the homebrew games work on emulators as I would love to play them.

Sergei, welcome to the forum ! From what I understand any vb rom will run on an emulator. all except Virtual War Zone that will only run on hardware.

The effects of the Virtual Boy make playing on it a unique and original experience.
