Original Post

finally some news about the project. i received the first 25 boards today! hopefully i can get them done next week. we are also working on boxes, or better said, stickers which will be put over retrail game boxes. the design is finished, but getting it the right size, doing some experimenting etc will take another while. so once i got the units build and received final boxes, final specs and prices will be announced and you can place your orders. (hopefully) this will be in like 2 weeks. πŸ™‚

Wooooooo Hoooooooo!!! Oh! Yeah Baby!!!…. I’m Excited.

That is news!

Awesome news! Cannot wait for this to be released!

Lovely! Nice news. I will check daily to place the order as soon as it is available.

Great to hear that things are moving ahead more-or-less as planned! πŸ™‚

Wow, good news ^^

Exciting stuff. Let’s hope the VB homebrew scene explodes after this. πŸ™‚

i bought a big box of usb cables, so after all, everything that’s needed will be included with the flashboy.

also, the boxes are looking nice, putting stickers on the baseball boxes seems to have been a very good idea. it still takes a while until i get the final sticker sheets, though, the template is still being finalized.

attached are some pics richard took of a box prototype.

Wow, looks great. I’ve been trying to check in everyday to see if they are done :). What does that say on the back ? Eat instruction ?

Are we still looking at a few more weeks til its release ?


That looks totally awesome Chris, Many Thanks to you!!! and to you and Richard for all your efforts!!!!! I think it’s supposed to say “read Instruction booklet before operating” πŸ™‚

No, keep the box that way! It’s so cool because it doesn’t say what it’s supposed to say!

(P.S. What flavor are the instruction booklets?)

Oh lord. Lets not get into THAT stuff. “My flashboy box is minty mint and it is version 1 with the typo”.

Great news indeed !
I can not wait to test it !!

Looks nice… LOL! I love that “Eat instruction and precaution booklets before operating”, totally classic. And shame on you guys for questioning it… that’s intentional (play BLOX) and very humorous πŸ™‚ .


(P.S. What flavor are the instruction booklets?)

since “cherry’n’banana” would have been too expensive, i am afraid we have to go with “15 years old mattress” taste. πŸ™

(luckily, the package won’t contain a flashboy instruction booklet. ;D)

I could prepare an instruction booklet, but it wouldn’t be very digestive, sorry πŸ˜›

Is there a release date confirmed when I can get my mitts on this wonderous device.
His vecflash is a work of genius and keeps my Vectrex happily buzzing,
Looking forward to this doing the same!

AFAIK, there’s no release date. This is a “first come, first serve” basis. My suggestion: check the page regularly and order when it’s ready πŸ˜€

How do I order one and how much are they?

finally, the boxes have arrived, so i now have everything together. more info/final price/order info soon, one i have build more complete units. but here’s images. each box will be individually numbered.
