  1. If you didn't already know, the Retro Programming - Vectrex Academy 2021 course offered by Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Peer Johannsen through Pforzheim University (Hochschule Pforzheim) is well underway. Some students have posted work that could benefit from testing and your feedback. Below is the comment posted on by Peer on Vector Forums along with the link to the 2021 project gallery page. Make all replies to either the direct reply email link available on each project page, or by "Vectrex Academy 2021" post thread on Vector Forums. "Greetings everyone, here are the latest news of the Vectrex Academy 2021: All the projects are on track. Some have already reached what I would call a very early alpha status, which is quite amazing considering the fact that, just 7 weeks ago, none of the students had even heard of a Vectrex before. Two of the students are brave enough to have their alpha candidates already put out to the public for some very early alpha testing Alpha test binaries of projects "Frog Jump" and "Racetrex" are available for download by means of the gallery page. There are also links on the project pages for playing the games in Dr. Snuggles' online emulator in your web browser. It would be really really great if some of you guys out there find the time to take a look and try these games and voice your opinions and some early feedback here on the forum. This would be quite rewarding for the students and a great help for them while continuing their work on the projects. Many Cheers, Peer" Vectrex Academy 2021 Project Gallery Page: http://eitidaten.fh-pforzheim.de/daten/mitarbeiter/johannsen/vectrex_2021/gallery/vectrex_gallery_2021.htm Vector Gaming Forum thread about the 2021 projects General Information: https://vectorgaming.proboards.com/thread/2544/vectrex-academy-2021 Vectrex Academy 2021 Homepage: http://eitidaten.fh-pforzheim.de/daten/mitarbeiter/johannsen/vectrex_2-021/vectrex_academy_2021.htm
  2. Cool. Did you also make a video of the removal process? Or take pics? How did you remove the old screw thread and material?
  3. The Reset button actuator stem is hollow and threaded. On your Vectrex the screw from the reset button appears to be broken off from the button and still inside the actuator. Here are links to my YouTube and Google album videos on Vectrex control know an button removal. As well as what the look like when removed.

  4. Nice! Looking forward to this one!
  5. For functionality and fit I think the Madtronix Vectrex 3D Imager is better than the original. Overall fit is better. Visibility is better. All game color wheels (disc) are included with the Madtronix 3D Imager. The point some my have a problem with is the spinning disc is exposed. The wind the disc generates might bother some people. Either immediately, or after playing for a while. However, I never find it to be a problem. Another potentially big plus for the Madtronix Vectrex 3D Imager is the fact the color wheel is much easier to make/replicate than the original GCE color wheels. This lends itself to homebrew replication. And also making other color wheels if different color layouts. And wholly different colors. Great for new 3D games that might use different layouts.
  6. Most wall wart power convertors are not suitable for Vectrex, or other old electronics, uses. You will want to stay with a sine wave type of power converter. In the USA or Canada that would be an external Step-Up or Step-Down power transformer when used a foreign (UK / Euro / Nordic / Japan) Vectrex. Something similar to this: https://www.amazon.com/Pyle-voltage-converter-Transformer-Charging/dp/B00EEJZQ5W/ref=sr_1_5 Or you could also use a Double-Conversion, Pure Sine Wave, UPS. More expensive. The Vectrex needs at least 40 Watts of power. Really, it does better with 55 to 60 Watts. When determining a Step-Up/Down transformer to use I suggest one that can supply at least 75 to 100 Watts continuous. From the various region Vectrex rear panel labels.
