OG Game Boy hardware online multiplayer

by Anapan Thu May 06, 2021 2:47 am

After watching this guy successfully mine bitcoin on a Game Boy, he revised the online protocol to make link cable multiplayer over the internet possible.
I think this is cool enough for its own topic. I actually started mentally planning to build a pile of these, but when I checked the -More- details, he's selling them for cheaper than I can source the parts. I'm going to finally jump into the online multiplayer gaming world. I'll build a pile of these one night after they arrive and find a way to gift them to the community here.

This is awesome!

Does it only work with Tetris?

Right now, he's only programmed the system to make Tetris matchups, but it's all open-source so I expect wireless pokemon trading wouldn't be too hard to manage. My boards will arrive some time in June.

I've got like twenty dubs in Tetris 99, I'm gonna demolish all of you if I get my hands on one.

The boards are finished and have shipped! I tentatively ordered only 5, but I plan to order more. Pi Pico boards arrived a while ago.
