you could print 4 circles (7 mm diameter) in the back plate to paste rubber feet ; or maybe 5 with one in the center

 

OK.

I just heard about these for the first time in VectrexRoli's latest video. I'd definitely be in for a kit if they go back into production.

Hi!

 

Got my Vectrex this friday :)

If there is a new waiting list for the Vectrex Controller Kit I would like to be on it please :)

Are someone making a case for it also?

Ok, I'll start a waiting list. Filling the list probably will take some time. :sleep:

 

If I have enough names, I'll PM everybody on the list and ask, if there still is some interest.

If there are enough people, I' ll start another production run.

 

Richard H. 3D-printed a prototype case. You find a photo above, in this thread.

Or you start a DIY-case project.

:)

Nice, I missed this.

 

Never got the hang of what those potentiometers are used for, autofire - to any button?

Haven't been here for a couple of days.  :)

 

@fandenivoldsk:  :thumbsup: registered

 

@e5frog: There is independent auto-firing for button 3 and button 4. You control the frequencies of the two auto-firing circuits with the help of the two pots. There is no auto-fire for button 1 and button 2, since those normally are used for steering or rotating, but not firing.

If a case/enclosure kit becomes available, I am interested in one.  I believe my joystick kit was from the first run.  Thanks.

Good news,

I redesigned the pcbs a little bit and I've recently ordered 20 items. I'm going to order all those many components the next couple of days or so, step by step.

I'd looks like the project is going into the next round, I guess. It will take some time, but eventually there will be a new batch. :thumbsup:

New pcbs (version 3) arrived today. I cut them and drilled the holes for the potentiometers.

This is just what i am looking for, i am in the middle of designing an arcade stick base at work. i programme and operate a cnc. i haven't decided yet what material to use, MDF, Trespa or maybe even corian. your kit looks perfect, how can i send you money!!

Thanks, you are too early:)

I'm still in the process of ordering parts from all over the world. I will show pictures of the new prototype, right here in this thread, as soon as I made one.

But I think, my kit probably addresses a different topic. See, this is a tiny joystick controller, roughly the same size like the original Vectrex controller. Compared to a real solid, robust arcade stick, it is quite fragile and small.
