  1. The NOX / Death Chase overlays have finally arrived Still some work to do (boxes, instructions etc) but the games should be released within the coming few months. Some old gameplay videos : NOX Death Chase
  2. In case anyone out there needs it. VecFlash USB Software for Windows to talk to the Vectrex VecFlash cartridge from Richard Hutchinson. VecFlash USB.zip
  3. Coming Soon for Vectrex... MiniVex Pedal I Vectrex Controller Button Controller. Following Larry's (ClassicGamesAndCarsFan) current MiniVex controller is the new MiniVex Vectrex Pedal Controller. The controller is designed so that it may be used either in tandem with another Vectrex controller, or independently on a different controller port. Plug the Pedal Controller into your Vectrex. Plug your controller into the extension box controller. Select button 1,2,3 or 4 with the rotary switch. Then stomp it! The selected button still operates from the controller as well as the pedal. The Pedal Controller can be used in on its own too. Plug the pedal controller in the desired Vectrex controller port. Select button 1,2,3 or 4 with the rotary switch. Then stomp it! Keep an eye on availability through Larry's regular eBay sales. Here is his his eBay sales via his "ClassicGamesAndCarsFan" seller account. https://www.ebay.com/sch/ClassicGamesAndCarsFan/m.html?_sop=10 I'll post more pictures later when mine arrives. #Vectrex #MiniVex #Pedal #Foot #Switch #Controller #MiniVexPedalI
  4. This is a cross-post from Digital Press. I've gotten some great Vectrex/prototype information from here in the past though, and I figure you guys would be the be the ones to know. I recently purchased a large lot of Vectrex prototypes and I'm trying to find out how early they are in relation to their production counterparts. I've done some digging but have only been able to find years in which games were released and not actual dates. One prototype in particular, Pole Position, is dated 8-15-83. I've seen it listed as being released in 1983, but no actual reference to the month/day in which it hit shelves. I have about 15 or so prototypes I'm trying to get release dates for, so any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
  5. "Hex", a little game I knocked up yesterday. It uses joystick/buttons or a spinner/atari driving controller in port 2. Press 4 on the Vectrex joystick to start. Video : Free ROM attached. HEXa2.BIN <edit> Updated binary with ability to continue (within 4 'levels' of where you left off)
  6. Welcome to my Summer Sale! I will be thinning out a few things in my overall collections. *NOTHING RIGHT NOW - SORRY! CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES* (last updated 2-15-2019) I have plenty of positive feedback on eBay and here. Will ship within 48 hours of received/cleared payment. All games, manuals and boxes are clean tested and packaged with care. Any other questions, just ask. PayPal or Cash (if local) only, please. Thanks!
  7. Hi, I recently got a good deal on an original GEC model Vectrex system. It's in amazing condition, and works great. But there is one issue. When I play the built in Game Mine Storm (I do not have any other games yet) moving the stick LEFT will make me spin RIGHT endlessly until I move the stick RIGHT to stop it, rather then turn me LEFT. Moving the stick right works perfect, and the buttons are fine, but what can I do about the controller? Is the problem even with my controler or the system? What is wrong? What can I do? Oh a and it would probably help to add that I hear a little rattel inside the controller when I pick it up. PLEASE HELP ME OUT!
  8. Howdy, I'd like to build a dual joystick Vectrex controller.. I'm just not exactly sure how to do it. I assume the 2nd stick is tied to the buttons, mainly button #4, the fire button somehow. Are there any plans out there to construct one? I've come to find that this is about the only way to go if you're going to properly play Robot Arena. A PS2/Vectrex adapter would be the most ideal, cheapest solution, but those seem impossible to come by and the Instructable I saw wasn't the clearest. http://www.instructables.com/id/Modify-PSX-Controller-for-Vectrex-Games-Console/ (pic to show what I'm going for). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  9. 3D Vector Space Cab Design & code by Fell^DSS for Ludum Dare #38 Completed in 72 hours or less! Wow! Correction. 48 hours or less!

The download package includes the binary plus an emulator ready to run Ludum Dare #38 page for 3D Vector Space Cab: https://ldjam.com/events/ludum-dare/38/3d-vector-space-cab Download 3D Vector Space Cab here: https://www.spritecreative.co.uk/3d-vector-space-cab.zip Here's a video of 3D Vector Space Cab in action:

    Vectrex Berzerk

    Is it just me or is this incarnation of the game extremely difficult? The first few screens are easy enough, but I just can't get above roughly 8,000 points. When I get to that point, I eventually just appear in a screen where a robot is right in front of me and attacks me a split second after play begins, giving me virtually no time whatsoever to react. Is there some sort of strategy I'm missing out on here?
  11. I've been working on a new resource for Vectrex Collectors and Enthusiasts. I call it the Definitive Guide to Vectrex Collecting. It's a website which includes all Homebrew released games and hardware (eventually original equipment). There is comparisons of all versions and variations of each release as well as pictures and information that is not available anywhere else on the internet. I've tried to offer a good amount of info relating to collecting but for more in depth information of each item, I've provided links to the Vectrex Wikia. Also included is a filterable and searchable checklist which can be used as a rarity list or resource for determining value (how many produced, whether the rom has been released, whether its still available). http://tbone1892001.wix.com/vectrex-guide
  12. Hey Vectrex fans, I jmade my first fanzine for the Vectrex. The pdf can be downloaded from http://bit.ly/1cCtDkD Hope you enjoy.
  13. OK, this may be a stupid question ie electronics 101, but I have something that's really stumping me. I purchased a cap kit and was removing c521 from the power board and just for the heck of it I tested continuity with my multi-meter across the + and - and received a beep. I check a couple others and they don't do that. I'm wondering if a cap is removed, then the + and - shouldn't be connected correct? Does this mean I have a short somewhere else on the board? I check in the area for possible wayward solder that may have crossed a couple traces but i don't see anything. I have added a photo of the pads where I put each end of my multi-meter to test continuity. Thanks for your help. Want to get this thing back to its former glory!
  14. (not mine) Vectrex "MiniVex II" controller, with Rapid Fire, twin analog joysticks Brand-new, twin joystick controller for Vectrex! It's got a tough, all-metal case. Size is about 3/4 of the factory unit, see photo 4. The two joysticks are analog, like the factory controller. The left and right cables correspond to the left and right joysticks, and a toggle switch on the back selects the left or right cable for button inputs, so you can use the buttons with EITHER joystick, when only one cable is plugged in, or you can plug in both cables and use BOTH joysticks at once! (The toggle switch prevents overlapping button inputs.) Thus this controller is compatible with Robot Arena, and (hopefully) the upcoming Stramash Zone. Now, if those homebrew designers would only grace us with Crazy Vector Climber, and Vectrex Widow, and Cloak & Vector... The buttons on this controller are smaller and stiffer than the factory controller, but there's a remedy for that...button #4, most often used for firing, has a rapid fire feature. Just hold it down and bangbangbang! The other toggle switch on the back selects rapid or normal fire, and with the rotary pot you can adjust the firing speed to YOUR liking. This controller is not cosmetically perfect...I make them by hand, so they're not going to be perfect. Please see my other auction for a simpler, single joystick version of this controller. I'll guarantee this controller for 30 days from the day you receive it. If it fails within that time, I'll repair it at no charge. Paypal only, will ship anywhere EBay's Global Shipping goes, and THANKS FOR LOOKING! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vectrex-MiniVex-II-controller-with-Rapid-Fire-twin-analog-joysticks/222794918982?
  15. Just a quick question. How do you store you're loose vectrex game cartridges? I mean, for the atari 2600 you had those nice vhs style boxes to store you loose cartridges. But are there any aftermarket boxes for the vectrex? Preferable with space to store the overlay. I now use a binder with sleeves to store the overlays, but it's not ideal.

  17. In case anyone who in interested isn't tracking... The 3DS, (specifically the New 3DS) has recently gotten ports of Stella, Prosystem, Handy, O2EM, Virtual Jaguar, 4DO, and more via RetroArch/LibRetro. Emulation of these systems run full speed: 2600 7800 Lynx Vectrex Odyssey2 Game & Watch Near full speed: CPS3 Interesting, but not fast enough to be considered playable: 3DO Jaguar These are not yet part of the official build, but can be found in posts by MrHuu in the thread at gbatemp. He plans to make a separate thread at some point, but as of the time of this posting, the builds are posted at page 270 (Stella, Vectrex, & Prosystem), page 273 (Handy, O2EM, VirtualJaguar, & 4DO), page 275 (Game & Watch), and page 279 (CPS3). MrHuu also posted a playlist generator here. Also interesting is that on a New 3DS (not XL), the screen size when set to "integer" is exactly the same as the screen size on a real Lynx.
  18. For sale: brand new Mine Storm screen printed overlays ​This is the last batch I will make. Features: Professionally screen printed reproductions Four colour layer overlay Better colour registration then the original overlays White print on the back layer Die cut The overlays are shipped with a protective transportation overlay - see https://youtu.be/W5xRiBEBJXU Please note these overlays are professionally screen printed and die cut. These should not be confused with the floppy home made ink jet produced overlays that can be sometimes found on the internet. You will find it very difficult to tell the difference with this repro from the original Mine Storm overlay. The only give away is the intentional small copyright text on the right edge of the reproduction overlay. This text says "reproduction" on purpose in order to distinguish it from the original. The pricing is as follows: UK - £9 (overlay) + £1.65 (post & packaging) = £10.65 EU - £9 (overlay) + £3.10 (post & packaging) = £12.10 US/Canada - £9 (overlay) + £3.85 (post & packaging) = £12.85 For the same postage amount I can post up to two overlays in the same package. If you would like to purchase a reproduction Mine Storm overlay please email [email protected] stating quantity required and your country. Also I have some remaining green overlays in stock - please visit http://www.vectrex.co.uk/shop.htm

  23. Just to let any of you Vector arcade gamers out there (and that includes fans of the arcade machines, mame and Vectrex) Vectrex Wiki owner Darryl B has recently launched the Vector Gaming Forums. Here’s his press release: "Being a cross of the old Vectrex forums (R. I. P.) and a vector gaming forum on Yahoo! Groups (also long dead!), the vector gaming forums takes things a few steps further by also having discussions on raster vector ports and even current vector-like online and portable device/cell phone games. There are also forums for any kind of game console, from the oldest Pong machines to the most current gaming rigs available such as the XBox 360, but the main focus are on the beloved wire-frame games." http://vectorgaming....s.com/index.cgi
