hi again guys
for the people who were interested in the psychedelic overlay:
it would be really good if someone who can make professional overlays could be persuaded to make a batch, i think there would be much interest
but in the meantime, if you wish to make your own, you can use any colour inkjet printer
then, you need to buy some A4 size transparent/film sheets printer paper.. cheap on ebay and amazon, you could buy a pack of 10 sheets
for searching on ebay or amazon, search using keywords like: "INKJET CLEAR PRINTER ACETATE FILM OHP A4 SHEETS"
ok i have attached to this message, the psychedelic images to print out (A4 size, 300 dpi) *** SEE ATTACHED .ZIP for the PICTURES to print ***
note: if you have not printed on clear acetate sheets before, take note you need to print on the CORRECT side of the page. only one side of the sheet is designed to be printed on. one of the sides of the sheets is slightly 'rough' in appearance and feel. you need to print on the rough side of the clear acetate sheet.
note: after printing the images, you will need to cut the sheets down to the size of a regular vectrex overlay (can use blade or scissors)
ok so now just print some out, and experiment. i used 4 sheets all together on the vectrex screen (the 2 psychedelic images, a 3rd 'all yellow' sheet, and finally a 4th clear sheet).. hint: put the brightest psychedelic print FIRST close up-against the vectrex screen, then the second 'smoother/less bright' psychedelic print on top of that. then have the 'all yellow' sheet on top of those, and finally, use a 4th 'clear/unused' sheet on top of those 3 sheets. doing this gives a very smooth, colourful/warm image, as you can see in the example pictures above.
