HyperBoy 32Mbit Flashcart
You can also find these at Stone Age Gamer!
HyperBoy is all about getting a cheaper flash cart for Virtual Boy out to VB gamers. It's based on my HF32 design, but drops the eInk screen, cap touch buttons, haptic feedback, and SD card to reduce cost. It requires a PC to update games and is still a "1 game at a time" cart. I've also added some RetroOnyx flare to it like aluminum covers with laser etched graphics. Lastely, it's the first ever VB flash cart built from 100% new parts. No donors parts used for these!
Note: The Thunderstruck HyperBoyFlasher GUI or command line tools are required to use this product for ROM updates. See the links below.
- 32 Mbit Flash memory
- 8kx8 or 32kx8 nvSRAM (depending on parts availability)
- Aluminum anodized covers
- 3D printed carbon fiber frame
- Laser etched graphics
- USB port for game loading
- Uses a current generation GUI called HyperBoyFlasher
Compared to FlashBoy+, HyperBoy has the following advantages:
- Backup of SRAM files using HyperBoyFlasher 2.0 from Thunderstruck
- Current generation GUI
- Automatic padding of ROM files
- Double the flash memory
- Holds the full Hyper Fighting ROM file
- Four times the SRAM
- nvSRAM, so no backup battery to worry about
