The most curated, hand-tested, English-friendly romset for the Virtual Boy game console
The Virtual Boy was a very ambitious idea, but it was notorious for giving people headaches with its red-only LED display right in front of your eyeballs. The controller was pretty sweet, though, and there were a few gems hidden under the gimmicks.
Archive.org's torrent feature wasn't designed with collections like this in mind, so I do not recommend using it - Downloads can fail or be incomplete. If you're wanting to help preserve this set, you can use the link below to download everything directly. That will make sure you get everything saved without trouble! Also, I highly recommend using a download manager such as the Link Grabber feature in JDownloader 2 to make sure you get the quickest and most reliable connections possible. Just copy this link and add it to the Grabber. That's it! It should autofill all the folders and files automatically for easy download:

Special items included: Unreleased prototypes, games not in English (but only if they were easy enough to play without being fluent in another language), English-patched translations, plus "Sample Soft for VUE Programming (1.3)."
That last one's not a "game" in the typical sense - It's a Virtual Boy testing application that I believe is important to preserve. If you're only after the actual games in this set, feel free to delete that one.
Items removed: Non-working dumps, duplicates, prototypes of games that eventually saw a release, versions not in English when English was available, Japanese and European versions of titles when a North American version was available, hacks, and modern homebrew games.
