  1. I have developed a USB Burner compatible with Vectrex and Watara named MVBD, and blank rewritable cartridges for these two consoles: MWRMC 8in1: Can store up to 8 64 kB Watara games. MVRMC 16in1: Can store up to 16 32 kB or up to 8 64 kB Vectrex games. MVRMC 4in1: Can store up to 4 32kB or up to 2 64 kB Vectrex games. MVBD plugs to your computer through an USB port and disguises itself as a MSD (mass storage device), as it was a pendrive, so you will not need to install additional software to use it (apart from the USB MSD driver that is already included in most of today´s operating systems, as Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, Mac OS and Ubuntu). To copy a ROM you just have to drag it to the burner drive. There is more information at: http://www.vectrex.hackermesh.org/index.php/en/ I am offering these items through ebay.es: MVBD Burner (26€): http://www.ebay.com/itm/251474038263 MWRMC 8in1 (15€): http://www.ebay.com/itm/251475080137 MVRMC 16in1 (15€): Now out of stock MVRMC 4in1 (10€): http://www.ebay.com/itm/251472065968 Thanks.
  2. Hi guys! Let me share with you my latest build! It is, what I believe is a first lightpen with buttons for Vectrex which realy looks like pen! I know that some guy has made one few years ago, but it was made I think with 3D printed case with a bit weird design in my opinion with all the respect to the maker. Short story behind this is, that I've bought my first Vectrex about year ago and I thought that I could try to make a lightpen for it, which I have by using the known guide from Playvectrex. When finished I found the usage by drawing with one hand and controlling by other a bit clumsy but I said to myself - OK, it is like it is, anyway I am not an artist and didn't wanted to use it much. But than few weeks later, new video from Vectrex Roli came out, in which he was talking about Vectrex controllers and said that "there is no lightpen with buttons, but maybe somebody will make one someday", which turned a light in my head and I thought that maybe I could be that "someone". :-) The rest is a history - I made a prototype which worked well, so I made a first s.n.001 which is already in possession of Vectrex Roli since I think he deserves it as an author of an idea. On these pictures is the second one I've made. So feel free to comment and ask any questions. :-) Thank you, Rastislav
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Happy Holidays To all, Barb and I wish you the best for the holidays ****Coming very soon **** Sega combos. Many variations will be available, including the CD, the CD platform and so on. If you have any interest in these, send me a PM indicating which or what combinations you are looking for. How many times have you seen a console setting on a shelf,or a table,and covered in a fine layer of dust or sticky fingerprints? Dust and sticky stuff is not our friend!And its certainly not a friend to our consoles. So, a dust cover is not only "eye candy" but it keeps that console killer, dust out. Oh,lets not forget those other killers,foreign objects,unknown liquids,and little kids. And it adds a touch of cool to your collection *****And to all of you sending prayers our way, Barb and I thank you.******* Leukemia is for lack of a better description a life changer.Since I was diagnosed with this a year and a half ago, our lives have seen the entire range of emotions. I was told that I had 1-2 years left when they 1st found it. Then after a very aggressive pattern of chemo and blood transfusions, it went into remission 4 months ago. But now its back again, and I have to be very worried about infections. So we are back to the chemo again, and hope that another miracle will occur. After a depressing vist with the Dr. it appears that choices of treatment , have become limited. I can either go to the hospital for a month where they would treat this with a very very aggressive chemo, or I can get a milder version , given as a shot for 5 days, every month. The choice is becoming clear, and it is Quality or Quantity. I have chosen the quality, and with that I am not sure where it will go. I will say that at least I have been given the option, which alot of people do not get.And after the second go around with the Chemo, I am holding my own.I cannot decide which is worse, a round of 15 shots or getting a bag hooked up for an hour at a time. Bottom line,with Barbs help, and the amazing drugs I soldier on. Again thank you to all who send us best wishes. Since my wife(Barb) started making these covers over 16 years ago,she has continued to expand the choices.I am posting a lot of pictures so you will be able to see all of the choices available. For those of you just seeing these for the first time,we have been selling on Ebay over 15 years,Atari Age over 5 years and have sold covers to buyers worldwide! Covers for the Atari 400 and 800 now available with Red or White logos. . These are all custom made,from"pleather" which is a type of vinyl/leather.Easy to clean,and maintain Yes,we will accept Paypal-verified *******Shipping, no problem with going out of US, as long as you know I have nothing to do with USPS pricing******* Yes, we will combine shipping. And yes, we will give a discount when multiple items are bought. ******Note***** While most of the pictures show the cover installed on an actual console,a few do not,which is why they look dis-sheveld OK,pricing is as follows: 3DO $31.00 Atari 1050(Floppy Drive) $17.00 Atari 5200-$18.00 Atari 5200 Trak- ball-$16.50 Buy both of the 5200 units(Console and Trak-ball) $32.00 Atari 2600-$18.00 Atari VCS-$18.00 Atari 2600 Heavy Sixer-$18.00 Atari Jr/Rainbow-$14.00 Atari 7800-$18.00 **Atari Specials all 4 covers $60.00= 2600,7800,5200, and 5200 Trakball Atari Jaguar-(white)-$16.00 Atari Jaguar-(red)-$16.00 Atari 400- White or Red Logo-$17.00 Atari 800xl-$18.00 Atari 800 Red or white logo-$19.00 Atari Jaguar CD-$18.00-White or Red lettering Colecovision Console $18.00 Colecovision Roller Controller$16.00 Colecovision Module 1(Atari Adaptor)- $15.00 Colecovision Module 2-$18.00 Buy all 4 for $65.00 Commodore 64-$18.50 Commodore Vic 20-$18.50 Commodore C128- $18.50 Commodore C16-$18.50 Fairchild Channel F -$22.00 **Has cutout for power cord and joystick cords** Intellivision(Master System)-$18.00***With running man logo*** Intellivision II-$16.50 Both Intellivision Special Covers $32.00 Intellivision=INTV III- $18.00 Magnavox Odyssey II $25.00 Mattel Aquarius Computer $16.00 Nintendo-NES 101 Red or White Lettering-$16.50 Nintendo/NES White or Red Lettering-$17.50 N-64-White or Red Lettering-$17.00 SNES-White or Red Lettering-$17.00 Sega Dreamcast-orange-$18.00 Sega Dreamcast blue-$18.00 Sega Dreamcast Red- $18.00 Sega Genesis II-$16.50 Sega Genesis-16 bit $18.50 Sega Saturn -$18.50 Sega Master System -$16.50 Sega Mega Drive- $17.50 Sega Mega Drive II - $16.50 Sears Video Arcade II $18.00 ***Looks like the Atari 7800 Sears Tele-Games(Atari 2600) -$18.00 Sears Tele-Games(Atari Heavy 6r)- $19.00 Sony Playstation 1 $16.50 Sega Mega Drive- $17.50 Sega Mega Drive II - $16.50 RS 80/Tandy/Radio Shack Computer-$19.00 Texas Instruments 99/4a $18.50 Turbo Graphx 16/TG 16 $18.00 Vectrex Dustcover Black /w/ Blue ,White,Red logo $38.00 Vectrex Cover Gray with Black/Blue $38.00 XBox(Original) $25.00 PM me for additional questions And Thanks for looking. Over the past few years we have had numerous requests for consoles and computers that we do make. The reason we do not make them is because we have not had the actual console/ computer to use for a template. Buyers say, well I can give you the dimensions or send a picture. The problem is that dimensions do not take into account all the curves, bends, protrusions etc that are common on these units. So, working from supplied dimensions almost never works. Barb and I are not as mobile as we used to be, so trying to find these computers/ game consoles is a crap shoot at best and a waste of time at worst. What we can offer is this.If you have a console/computer, preferably a parts shell unit, that your willing to send us, we will make a cover for it and send it back at no charge! Now, we are not interested in units that are so obscure that there might only be 100 in the world. Obviously for us to make the cover there has to be a market of some kind, so please keep that in mind. So, shoot me a PM, let me know what your looking for and we can see if we can help each other!
  6. Hi guys! I have modded a Sega Megadrive/Genesis controller for my own needs but have tried also to put it on Ebay and to my surprise they are selling quite well, so I have now got a bunch of Sega controllers for modding. If you would like to have one too, check it on ebay: Sega Controller Modded for Vectrex If you would like some other button order or if you have some other special wish, please send me a pm and if I can I will gladly make one customised just for you. 🙂 Have a nice day!
  7. From the album: Vectrex

    My original via chip in the troublesome Vectrex system. Vecmulti will not run properly, garbled menus and games stop or will not load.
  8. From the album: Vectrex

    Replacement VIA chip for Vectrex. Tried it to see if vecmulti issues would be fixed. Same results as original VIA
  9. Vectrex in box with Owner's Manual, Minestorm Manual, and 21 complete in box games, including the light pen complete in its original box. Also comes with a mail order dust cover (not pictured). Each game is complete with overlay, overlay sleeve, cartridge, and manual. All games are in very good condition, functional, and have been kept in box protectors. Accepting reasonable offers on the entire lot. Not looking to split up at this time. Feel free to contact me with any questions. I have not sold on AA but you can find me on Nintendoage and Ebay with the same user name. Sold
  10. 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.
  11. "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)
  12. 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!
  13. Hey Vectrex fans, I jmade my first fanzine for the Vectrex. The pdf can be downloaded from http://bit.ly/1cCtDkD Hope you enjoy.
  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. 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
  16. 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

  19. 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!
  20. 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!
  21. 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.
