  1. BEAUTIFUL WORK. The Japanese version should be collectible already.
  2. If you type "new minivex twin stick" in the search bar on this site, you can see my post from last year with pictures and description of my dual stick controller, compatible with both the 2600 and 7800. I only made a few of these, to test the waters, and there just wasn't enough interest to justify a whole batch. Kept the prototype for myself and it does come in very handy for Raiders and Stargate. Might give you some ideas for building your own. I'd put a link here to that post if I knew how, but I'm computer illiterate. Larry
  3. I need me some retro socks like those! Very appropriate for playing old school games! Larry
  4. There's a "secret" fifth selection on the dial that's not labeled...one click past number 4...try that one Larry
  5. Never knew I could be that convincing... I wasn't kidding about being a redneck, however. In the photo is my "Fairweather Drying Rack" and the drying room for freshly coated MiniVex cases. Keeping tumbleweeds out of the drying room is a real challenge. Larry
  6. WAY COOL, thanks for the info. Now it's here on AtariAge for all to see. I can't tell you just how difficult it was to find the tiny amount of info that I did, and what I presented above was pretty much the extent of it. Even Atari Mania, which has quite a few variants listed, didn't have much of anything on these at the time I was looking. Probably fair to say then, that Ocean City is also in PAL format. Larry
  7. Up for auction on eBay are two weird cartridge variants I ran into a while back, never having seen either before...at least, they're weird in the U.S. but maybe not overseas. First up is "Ocean City" by Funvision. I don't know the region format of this cart, because even after cleaning the game won't come up but a second, long enough to glimpse a screen like Atlantis. Tried it on two TV's, one of which does display PAL, and got the same result on both. The picture label matches that of a game called Inca Gold by Zellers, which is strange because they had their own Atlantis hack "Ocean City Defender", and it had yet a different picture on the cart. Second up is "Quick Step" by Imagic. Not an uncommon game by any means, but the cartridge sure is...in an Activision-style case with an orange label. This one IS working, and turned out to be PAL format. Only learned today (slap) that most modern TV's can display PAL. Never knew that before. By the way, the dates in the photos are incorrect. My camera eats batteries and I'm tired of the setting the date. If you're interested in either of these, please visit my eBay page: [ebayseller]classicgamesandcarsfan[/ebayseller] Larry
  8. Hi again, fellow Vectrex-aholics. I know there are already some good rapid-fire add-ons for the Vectrex, but I thought I'd take a stab at one. This Universal Four-Channel Rapid Fire Module (that's a mouthful) hooks up inline with any Vectrex controller. The four locking buttons on the unit let you assign rapid fire to any or all of the buttons on your favorite controller, and the rotary pot and pulsing LED on the back of the unit let you adjust the firing rate to your liking. Very simple and easy to use. Thanks to all for your support. Larry
  9. Addendum: someone please let me know if eBay link does not work. It was acting strangely. Larry
  10. Hi folks, sorry if the title sounds like a loud TV commercial for a used car dealership. Going to be relocating soon, and anything I don't have to pack up means one less headache. (Will probably run out of aspirin regardless.) Thus if you've been considering a MiniVex controller for Vectrex or Atari, they'll be available for the next few weeks, last week of July at the latest, and that will be it for a while. I do expect to be back up and running sometime in the mid-to-late fall, but there's just too many variables to say exactly when. Please visit my eBay seller's page; all serious offers will be considered. https://www.ebay.com/sch/classicgamesandcarsfan/m.html?_trksid=p3692 To all who have been supportive in one way or another...thank you. Larry
  11. Here are the photos again, somehow they got lost during the recent renovation:
