  1. A re-release is coming. Can't say exactly when but it's definitely happening.
  2. No. A rerelease of the boxed version Nox/Death Chase is coming.
  3. Every Day Is Halloween (Competition Version) for use in Vector War X. This version disables life extends and disables all cheats. When submitting a score, please take a pic/screenshot of the high score table with "VWX HI-SCORES" visible so Helmut knows you're not cheating EDIH_VectorWarX.BIN For more information on Vector War X, see the thread on the Vector Gaming Forums. https://vectorgaming.proboards.com/thread/2464/vectrex-tournament-vector-31st-2020
  4. New LED "pumpkart" version available now : https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/203129612680
  5. My code reads the trackball DIR/CLK signals for each axis and updates the crosshair coordinates. Analog joystick emulation would certainly make it more compatible with games but it wouldn't be true trackball control which was the point of my hacks (and the CX-80 /CX-22 does not require any hardware hacks or adapters). I have more trackball compatible projects coming in the future, such as this one.
  6. Try installing this and running the program again: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=10019
  7. I don't have a VecMulti to test on but try using the patcher that's on your VecMulti sd card on the EDIH ROM.
  8. You can use an unmodified Atari CX-80 or CX-22 in true trackball mode with my modified versions of Star Hawk and Patriots. Star Hawk [Trackball Edition] can be found here : https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/203123344865 and Patriots Deluxe is available from Packrat : http://www.packratvg.com/vpatriots.html
  9. C-19 Music Box. Generates tinkly music-box tones from the genetic code of the Covid-19 virus. Press buttons 1 and 2 on the controller to slow down/speed up the ‘music box’. Buttons 3 and 4 transpose the the notes down/up. Download Here

  16. Graham, I don't think Big Blue uses any bankswitching. IIRC the vectors are just being drawn at a lower intensity, just dial the Vectrex brightness back a bit when you see the dot in the centre of the screen. Stramash zone is probably the same issue. Wobbly vectors will happen occasionally, especially with games such as Stramash Zone that are drawing a lot on screen.

    Skull Shot

    I forgot to post this here yesterday - so here's a belated Halloween gift "Skull Shot!") Supports Sega Light Phaser (with adapter) or Vectrex Light Pen in Port 2. Start the game by pressing button 3 on the Vectrex controller in Port 1 (when using lightpen) or fire on the Light Phaser. Pressing button 4 on the Vectrex controller to start allows the game to be played with an analog joystick instead of light gun/pen. Download here : http://binarystarsoftware.com/bin/SkullShot_v090.BIN Make your own lightgun adapter by following my instructions here : http://www.binarystarsoftware.com/?p=282
  18. Yeah, ROMs don't sell on Vectrex. I tried doing so recently as an experiment and ~10 people bought them (at $5 a pop). Vectrex is a collectors market, most people want the full box and overlay, it's unlikely I'll offer ROMs for purchase again.
  19. Now available as a digital download : http://www.binarystarsoftware.com/?product=galaxy-wars-space-launcher-digital-download On sale at a special low price until September 1st.
  20. Death Chase UV https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2GhXswzOUg

    Light Gun

    A light gun/pen requires a CRT but it does not necessarily require a raster display. There are various different ways to find what the gun/pen is aimed at, counting the position on the screen raster is just one of them.
  22. I have passed on a compilation of my Patriots hacks to David at Packrat games. I'm sure it'll appear for sale at some point.
  23. I've made a few hacks that support Atari track-balls. A paddle controller is easy to build too and would work with any game that uses analog controls.
