Hi Guys,

Just to let you know, we haven't abandoned this project.

You wouldn't believe the number of emails and msgs we get on this thing from all over the world.....Lots of eyes are watching this build, so we want to get it right.

The main reason we haven't progressed much on this build is because of the video output issue.

This project is now our only project at the moment.... Hopefully 2015 will be a good year :)

..................... oh and i think a door just opened for us ;)

I've glanced at this project from time to time. Is there any reason you can't use a SNES with the Game Boy Adapter? If it's because you really have to have a Game Boy in there, I fully understand, but the SNES and adapter is pretty close (",)

Personal opinion: anything other then an actual Gameboy in this is a miss.  If it was easy it wouldn't be worth doing.  Just saying.  ;)

Also, just remembered that the SNES adapter emulates a GameBoy bezel as well, so that would look crap. It would look like your Gameboy is emulating a GameBoy  :D

I've read a lot of build threads on this site and this is simply the most ambitious while also delivering. Well done guys and keep up the great work.

Soooooooooo..........................

Things just got a little more serious!

Yesterday i posted a link to a video referencing to the "hdmyboy" website.

The hdmyboy fits in between the front section and the rear section of the Gameboy. It intercepts the buttons and video signals and outputs via HDMI.

When i visited their website i learned that they had a kickstarter project in the pipeline and have a number of prototypes available for sale.

Its a joint project between brothers Zane and Josh.

Zane and Josh live in the Netherlands. We John (me) and Peter (Wol) are based in Manchester England.

I decided to email them via their website and show them our website and Gameboy project so far. I did this at 1.10am!

I got a replay back about 20mins later........ I have posted the email exchange below;

Hi John & Wol,
That looks beautiful!
Josh and I will be flying to Manchester for a family event today and flying out tuesday am.
Where are you based and will you be around? We will be in Radcliffe in the morning and staying in Rochdale. We will have a car.
I don't think we will be to bring a test prototype, but we will try.
Mail me,
Zane

Hey John,
We weren't able to bring a prototype, but we will discuss lending you one later.
See you at 8,
Zane

-----------------------------------------------------------

So yeah........ they turned up at 8ish and left around 10ish......

I have lots to tell you all............ but for now.......it just got REAL!

Big thanks to Zane and Josh for popping round at such short noice. It was great to hear the journey you had made with your project.

it's amazing that considering how big both this community and the communities Zane and Josh are involed in, we were totally unaware of each others projects......

Pictures were taken, hands were shaken and we all had smiles on our faces.

Watch this space!
