VecMulti MenuMaker coming soon for Mac

SpiceWare

1,916 views

To try out HEX, a new Vectrex homebrew, I discovered I had to use one of my work systems to run the MenuMaker.

 

I don't like to do that, so I contact Richard H. to see if there was a Mac version and if not if I could port it. There's not, so he sent me his Delphi code so I could see what needed to be done.

 

I'm not familiar with Delphi so started doing some research and discovered it's Pascal. I found Lazarus, installed it, and after a bit of work was able to update the VecMulti's menu on my Mac.

There's more to be done, but I think I'll have something to share in another day or two.

Sweet! I bought a VecMulti, and have been hoping for a Mac port of the software.

 

Now I just need to buy an actual Vectrex. :D

Looks like the VecMulti is sold out -- doh! Shame because I have the Vectrex now.

 

Just ignore my page. I've been having trouble with my internet provider and have been unable to edit / update my page for months.

 

I shall be building more VecMulti's (with cases) next month.

FYI I have a few left from a batch I built this week.

 

Fantastic -- looks like I'll be placing an order soon! My kids love playing with the Vectrex, I just don't have as many games as I used to (lost over the years, unfortunately).

Just bought a VecMulti from Richard and love it. Especially like the fact (in most cases) that the Vec's reset button takes you back to the menu vs. using the on/off dial.

 

Now just looking forward to a Mac version of MenuMaker. :)

It was posted 2 days later in the next blog entry ;)

 

Nathan sent over the new icon last night. I checked it out this morning and it looks great! Even though I'm taking a week off from personal projects(in order to recoup from the past two weeks of hardcore programming) I'm going to post a "new" build tonight with Nathan's icon in place.
