If it needs to be a VecMulti and no other Vectrex flash- or multicart, I have seen on the "Vectrex Fans Unite!" Facebook group that Martijn from RevivalStudios is selling his Vectrex collection and there he is offering also a VecMulti. Don´t know if it is sold already though.

Failing Roli's tip off, might want to e-mail Richard and ask if he happens to have any made or if you could be put on a list for the next time he produces a batch. Probably your best bet and it's how I ended up with mine. :)

I emailed Richard early in July asking for one and he said he was out of stock at the moment and would let me know when he had more but I havent heard a peep since.

thanks mate i am chasing this up as we speak although i did email martijn about a couple of his items and he never replied, hopefully tagging him on facebook will be more fruitful !

it needs to be a cart that i can write roms to so that i can upgrade it with homebrew as and when such games arrive. there are a few titles already available that i would like that are no longer available in cartridge form :-(

OK I see, the VecMulti is a nice solution, but just in case you don´t know another solution where you can write ROMs to a cartridge is the Mateos rewritable multigame cartridge you see in the video below around 9:10:

It is not SD card based so you get 16 games on one single cart and you can buy it from here:

is it possible to use the cart without the writer or do i have to buy the writer and the cart ? (the website is a little unclear, although i think i need the writer too)

also, i just found your youtube channel a couple of days ago - great channel mate i've been enjoying the videos !

You need to buy the writer once and you can use it then for all Mateos flash carts.

Yes, you need the writer part (connects to your PC via USB), and then it functions with a number of different console format cartridges that Mateos has released.

 

Bonus function, you can also use the writer to dump cartridges you plug into it.

Bought one a few weeks ago. The best multicart I have ever purchased. I really like the Menu Layout, and the included games. Great Job!

The case for mine broke in shipping but still works great!   That 3D printer dust takes some cleaning to get off the SD and PCB.    I have been really enjoying this cart, thanks for Richard to getting it to me so quickly!

Mine just showed up today too.  Looking forward to taking it for a spin in a bit.  Shipping from the UK was surprisingly quick.  Thanks Richard!

Late to the party and a newbie so apologies.  Is the Vecmulti still available? Do they work with NTSC and PAL machines? How much are they? How much is shipping to the US?

Richard was kind enough to send me a new case, this one was opaque but much more sturdy and snaps together easily.   I was pretty happy with my cart as is but it's nice I don't have to be gentle when it come time it insert/remove the cartridge.
