looking forward to some screenshots too    yay  :)   (i expect u know this already but just in case, i find if you use your digital camera in a dark room on the powered-up vectrex (without using the camera flash of course) then you get a nice screenshot (or video footage) doing that, and not just of the overlay reflection)

these are all $13 each + $7 shipping US / $12 international to paypal.me/stevenkray. Note that "psych B" or the rainbow circular burst looks AMAZING with webwars, hex, tsunami, wormhole, etc. Just bananas!

Really cool.  I'll be placing an order for those.  Great for games that don't have overlays!

attached are the latest overlays also available. Star Castle Arcade, multicolor Spike, multicolor fortress of narzod

 

I'll need to order that Star Castle Arcade version, I've always hated that the original didn't match the ring colors from the arcade game.

 

If I may ask, why can't you make overlays for homebrews?  Is it because of permission or something else?  Some of those games could really use a proper overlay.
