Virtual Circuit Board: Basic Guide

Here is a basic guide on how to connect gates and components.



Welcome to Virtual Circuit Board, or VCB for short. In VCB, you can build circuits with logic gates and other components. This guide will show you how to build an AND circuit, and how to use the basic components.

Read, Write, and Traces

The logic gates and components in VCB are connected by read, write, traces, and sometimes cross. These allow them to communicate.

The first ink in your toolbar is the write. This ink acts as the output from logic gates and components. The next ink is trace. Trace is the wires of VCB that can interact with read, write, and cross. The third ink is cross. This allows two traces to cross each other without interacting. Note that crosses can only be one pixel wide or will not work.

The final ink is read. Read acts like the input for all of the components.

Interacting With The Simulation

Now that you have a basic AND gate, let’s find a way to activate it. Looking at the bottom right of your screen, select the green cube with a 0 on it.

This is a latch that can be toggled on and off. Or when simulating, can act switch. Now that we have something to activate our circuit, we have to add a write to it. This is so that when we turn it on, the write will write the output of the latch onto the trace.

Now we need something to tell us if the AND gate is on. To do this we put a read to the left of the write like this.

Then, put an LED to the right of the read. Once finished all of the steps, your circuit should look like this.

Now to start the simulation, click the green button at the top of your screen that says, “Simulate”.


Now that you have built a basic AND gate circuit, try to create more complex circuits. You can find more information by going to the top right of your screen and clicking the leftmost icon that looks like a small packet.

Thanks to dbomblauncher2 for his great guide, all credit to his effort. you can also read the original guide from Steam Community. enjoy the game.
