Have you checked the ROMs for the 3D games, and whether they needed patching for flash use?
Although given you get something when trying to run the game without the imager plugged in, suggests something maybe up with your port two. You shouldn't get anything without the imager plugged in, just a blank screen.

Agree with Mayhem. Perhaps have a look at Port 2's pins to see if any are bent?

Thanks for the suggestions. 2nd controller works in port #2. Ran the ROM Patcher utility on the Vecmulti and it said no errors found so ROM would not be patched. Also, lightpen is working in port #2. What else can I check?

you have to make sure the sticker on the wheel is facing the vectrex.
Ha! Go figure--I had the sticker facing me [facepalm]. I will try again when I get home
Probably would have helped if there were instructions with it. Ironically, there is text on the device saying "READ MANUAL BEFORE USING". Anybody seen instructions online?

That's another good point, about the side of the colour wheel.
John mentioned recently that he knows the manual is now gone, he had it on his old website.
-The color wheel's white index strip is always faced towards the Vectrex.
-The white calibration wheel may be installed between imager and wheel on or top of the wheel (usually works best)
-The imager is to be plugged into port two of the Vectrex
-Enjoy your games.
If the wheel is starting up and then stopping, then it does suggest to me you've got it the wrong way around and the device is halting because it can't calibrate properly as it begins.

Thanks, everybody. It worked once I had the wheel facing the right way. Amazing device and I am so happy to have one. Madtronix deserves some sort of Vectrex Medal of Honor or something.

Well I had the same problem with 3D games!! Blank screen. I'm going to try to reverse the wheel.
I had like ten people wanting to try the 3D viewer Hope this works!
Thanks for the tip!
