  1. ENTER THE FANTASTIC WORLD OF THE DARK TOWER! Helmut (hcmffm) and Nico (Nic Lobo aka pucpcuc) from Germany would like to honour a Vectrex game that was not released back in the 1980s: DARK TOWER. It's a pity that this great and unique action roleplaying game had no full physical release with box and overlay. We are going to change that! The goal is to make the finished product look and feel as if it was teleported here from the Eighties. PLEASE DO NOT ask to "put me on the list" because there is no list, yet. We will post here once the Dark Tower reproduction is near completion and ordering is possible. Cartridge numbers will be assigned randomly anyhow and not on a first come first served basis. Only one cartridge number is reserved already, that's Dark Tower #1 for John Hall, the original developer of the game. John wished us the best for the project (how cool is that?!). Production of a sufficient quality box and overlay will be challenging , and the final assembly and shipping will be a lot of work. But it's not just the two of us - Mat (Mayhem), Tony (50tbrd), and likely some more Vectrex enthusiasts will help us realise this project. Stay tuned! The picture shows a prototype which looks better on a photo, than in reality - just to give an idea where we are aiming to. Professional printing services will be used, so the final product will look different. Also artwork is still in progress and does not represent the final product. Nico and Helmut
  2. I still have my screen printed, die cut, poly carbonate, Test Cart overlays for sale. They are exact reproductions of the original test cart overlay used in the GCE/MB factory. They are ideal for hobbyists to help ensure they have their Vectrex display adjusted correctly. Use this in conjunction with the Vectrex service manual. They also make good overlays for some of the Vectrex games, e.g. add a gun sight to VecFever Battle Zone and Red Baron. Please don't confuse these with the floppy ink jet printer produced overlays. See my overlay spec here. The pricing is as follows and covers postage and packing: UK - £10.30 EU - £12.75 US/Canada/Australia/Japan - £13.50 In addition to the 100% perfect overlays above I also have some 'b' class Test Cart overlays stil remaining. 'b' class indicate that they are not 100% perfect. The 'b' class overlays have a small blemish or light scratch on the back. These imperfections can be seen when holding up to the light. When the overlay is placed on the Vectrex the imperfection is impossible to see. As 'b' class overlays are not 100% perfect I am selling them at reduced prices: UK - £6.30 EU - £8.75 US & other - £9.50 Hey, at the above prices, get one 'a' class and one 'b' class. The 'a' you can put in your collector's cabinet, and the 'b' can be part of your work bench To purchase please contact [email protected] or visit my site www.vectrex.co.uk for more info.
  3. I'm copying this over from I post i made on the Vectrex Fans unite facebook page: I make homemade Vectrex overlays by hand and my inkjet. Ready to take on the second batch of orders - the first ones have all been sent out! I find the quality to be great! I can do the original GCE releases only, no homebrew or unreleased games. The first batch was me figuring out the final process and pricing. They are $13 each and shipping is $8 US / $14 international (for one or up to 10). Send payment via paypal to [email protected] (good and services). In the note tell me which ones you are ordering. Or PM but paypal method is by far the easiest. Thanks and I hope those of you who ordered in the first round are pleased!
  4. Hello All Vectrex Fans! Thought this was long overdue for those who may not be on Vectrex Fans Unite and know me already. I just wanted to share my ongoing collection of Vectrex photography and videos I have been working on for the past few years. I love all things Vectrex and vector gaming in general(since 1979). Feel free to say hello and share back some pics of your collections! -Alan VECTREX ALIVE (video collection) https://photos.app.goo.gl/rZGvisrySVqDahwx6 VECTREX DAYZ https://photos.app.goo.gl/TYulhyxaCZgvtHGo1 VECTREX NIGHTZ https://photos.app.goo.gl/T60Od8avEACnv7PN2
  5. Just bought a Vectrex over the weekend and it came with a handful of games. That said, I'm in the market for the majority of games for the system, so if you have any to spare, in any level of completion (can be cart-only, manual, overlay, CIB, etc.), I'm interested. This is what I currently have already, which will be updated as I acquire additional items: Armor..Attack cart + manual + overlay Bedlam cart + manual + repro overlay Berzerk cart + manual + overlay Blitz! cart + manual + repro overlay Clean Sweep cart + manual + overlay Cosmic Chasm cart + manual + overlay Fortress of Narzod cart + manual + repro overlay Heads Up CIB Hyper Chase cart + overlay NEED MANUAL Mine Storm manual + overlay Polar Rescue cart + repro overlay NEED MANUAL Pole Position cart + repro overlay NEED MANUAL Rip Off cart + manual + overlay Scramble cart + manual + overlay Solar Quest cart + manual + repro overlay Space Wars cart + manual + repro overlay Spike cart + manual + overlay Spinball CIB Star Castle cart + repro overlay NEED MANUAL Starhawk cart + overlay NEED MANUAL Star Trek cart + manual + overlay Web Wars cart + manual + overlay Please shoot me a PM if you've got anything Vectrex related to spare! P.S. I'm aware there are multicarts and SD card-based cartridges out there and I will likely purchase one in the future, but I'd like some more tangible games first. Cheers.
  6. Just starting a new VEXTREME specific topic to separate out the what is now a chatty topic away from other cool Vectrex project threads.
  7. Hello! I wanted to offer the people on AtariAge the opportunity to purchase one of the MineStorm decal wraps I designed for the Vectrex. Take a look at the attached images and let me know what you think! I'll be doing a limited print run of 50 wraps. There is a pre-order list. If you are interested, please comment below and I'll add your name to it. Pricing will be $75 for the wrap, $15 for shipping to the US and $25 to ship internationally. (Shipping costs are estimates and are subject to change) I'll be making payment requests in the next couple of weeks, once I've gotten a few more people signed up. Payment will be made through PayPal. The material is repositionable, pressure activated vinyl with a UV laminate to protect the decal (and your Vectrex) from light damage. It's designed to be removed without leaving residue or damaging the surface. It's the same vinyl decal material used to wrap vehicles, and of course that has to eventually be removed when you sell the vehicle or change the wrap. So don't worry about damaging your precious consoles! These decals will actually protect them and will come off clean when you're ready to remove them. They're also easy to install, and require no special tools.
  8. In the Facebook group Vectrex fans unite!, a group member named Ralf Kornmann has released a Vectrex port of the classic game "Oregon Trail". This port is a text only so far. No sound. No mini game. Ralf's port of Oregon Trail is improving and is up to version version 1.0.1 so far. Looking forward to future improvements. Fun nostalgic game play. Oregon Trail for Vectrex by Ralf Kornmann release version 1.0.1 download via Facebook Files post. Oregon Trail for Vectrex by Ralf Kornmann release version 1.0.1 download via Google Drive post.
  9. I have had 6 different inquires about a replacement front panel retention clip for the Vectrex controller Anyone want to make the 3D model file? Here is an album link with are some images of the part. Vectrex Front Panel Controller Retention clip ( https://photos.app.goo.gl/XZPCuRuZ2fi8LcK49 ) And a couple pics from that album.

ORIGINAL Vectrex 3D Imager Goggles + three 3D games Rare ORIGINAL Vectrex Light Pen plus 2 Game Cartridges Vectrex console + 16 game cartridges with overlays Games include original overlays and instructions. Bought these 30 years ago and hope they find a good home now. Everything in excellent working condition.
  11. Hey, I want to trade my special video game TILT magazines. It was the first French magazine for videogame. It started in September 1982 (Mattel introduced the Intellivision in the same period in France). The magazine disappeared in 1994. I'm going to trade 20 numbers and only the most collectable (very difficult to find especially the first numbers !) You'll find most of test for Intellivision, Atari, Colecovision, Vectrex and more games in. The 5 first are really collectionable (last year, the first one was seen once on eBay and was sold at 150 euros... The next 4 was sold around 40 to 50 euros each, the others are cheaper (but not cheap ). N°1 Septembre-Octobre 1982 to N°10 Mars 1984 N°14 Juillet 1984 to N°20 Avril 1985 N°22 Juin 1985 to N°25 Octobre 1985 The magazines are in a very good condition ! I'm looking for Intellivision CIB games : Learning Fun 1 and 2 SMB Spiker Safecracker Tropical Trouble Pole Position Commando Sewer Sam
  12. From the album: vectrex

    TL866cs eprom programmer from Amazon made a vectrex game run on the first try.
  13. As some might know, my Vectrex died on me about 3-4 years ago. It just suddenly stopped working. I get nothing except crackling in the neck bulb of the CRT. I suspect it's a power board issue but have no idea if the CRT is working. So my plan is to take out the boards and do a rebuild, starting with a recap. I'll work on the logic board first. If I can get that working and producing something, such as sound, then I know I have a fair chance of getting some of the other stuff working. Whether or not I'll ever get the rest of it working is another thing but it'll at least give me the option of selling the boards as refurbs or keeping them as spares for when I get another machine. I've never recapped anything before, though, so how hard/easy is it on the Veccy? My worry is trying to do the power board because of the voltages involved. Are there cap kits available in the UK?
  14. As my vectrexes don't like the Vecmulti I'm looking for a 31 Games Vecflash and a Madtronix modern games multicart. If you prefer trading I also have some original Vectrex games, 3d-SectorX and jumper multicards to trade.
  15. My Pitchers Duel auction ends tonight. This item is new from CGE 2007. eBay Auction -- Item Number: 271406390134
  16. After a lot of testing, trials and errors...I've finally come up with a decent method of creating reproduction overlays for the Vectrex. I threw together an eBay auction, a basic Web site and created a complete set just to see if I could do it. Surprisingly they turned out pretty decent! While I never intended to create exact replicas of the silk screened originals, these reproductions turned out to work really well....especially because the hardest part is to recreate the white ink that is present on the reverse of the overlays to give the border an opaque background in certain areas when necessary. To the advice of one of my eBay viewers, I'm posting the info in this forum for you to ask me questions, give suggestions and/or purchase reproduction overlays for yourself. Check it out at http://www.skywaytwincities.com/Vectrex (case sensitive). Perfect for the avid collector or those who are new to the world of Vectrex Simple. Affordable. Fun. These reproduction overlays will give your Vectrex games the experience they were designed for without the hassle of tracking down a scratched up original or unboxing a pristine overlay you've got stored away. Did you just buy an awesome Vectrex Multicart? Now that you've got every game made for the Vectrex on a single cartridge, why not get all the overlays to go with them? Recreate the actual look and feel of the original games with newly made and easily replaceable reproduction overlays. How are they made? 1.Each overlay is printed high-res on to a transparency 2.A precision cut (by computer) white silhouette border is generated and affixed to the back of the overlay to make the borders "POP" just as the original overlays do 3.The high resolution transparency and computer cut border are then laminated together to create a bond and add more "firmness" to the overlay allowing it to position easily on your Vectrex Photos of each variation are provided in the eBay auction listed on the "Purchase" page of http://www.skywaytwi...ies.com/Vectrex (case sensitive) with an actual overlay on a Vectrex. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have by emailing [email protected] NOTE: These are not intended to be collectible overlays. They are meant to be used, to enjoy, and to give you a recreated experience of how Vectrex games were intended to be played. Minor blemishes may be present that will not affect game play. These may be visible when the overlay is held up to a bright light source and are not immediately noticeable when on the Vectrex screen. This is due to the lamination process. Special care will be given to ensure the best quality reproduction you can receive using the above described method. Overlays will be shipped in a cardboard backed mailer and will be separated from each other if you order multiple quantities.
  17. So a friend picked up a Vectrex with a few games recently while on vacation. Worked great when he tested it at the seller's house. Placed the system in his trunk, drove home from Florida (we're in Tennessee), and then tried playing with it again once he got home. Only this time, it wouldn't come up. When he turned the power knob, the only indication that it was getting power at all was a bit of static when adjusting the volume knob. That initially led me to believe that it was something to do with the vibration or possible jarring in the trunk on the ride home that might have caused it to stop working. So he gave it to me to take a go at fixing it since I have at least basic electronic repair skills. I did a bit of research and went through all the basic repairs: popped open the case, discharged the tube, pulled, polished, and reseated all the removable ICs, re-flowed the 4 power pins coming in from the power board to the logic board, cleaned the power pins, checked the voltages coming into the logic board (got all good readings of -5, +5, and -13 reading from the PCB), and just did some general cleanup of the 30 years of crud that had accumulated on the board and in the case. Still no dice. I wanted to see if the monitor was lighting up at all, so I turned off all the lights in my office, then fired up the Vectrex. Sure enough, after turning it on and waiting 10-15 seconds, I gradually saw a little white dot rising from the bottom of the screen and coming to a stop a bit northeast of center. When I turned off the power, the white dot illuminated a bit brighter for a split-second, then immediately went away (rather than slowly fading out like my working Vectrex does at power-down). That behavior makes me think it's most likely to be a capacitor problem, but I wanted to check here with the experts before making any assumptions and dropping money on a cap kit that may be either unnecessary or futile. Of course, I don't know if that would necessarily explain why the BIOS (or whatever) doesn't still fire up and play the little musical ditty on startup. My own uninformed theory is that, even though the voltages are reading good, it's possible that bad capacitors on the power board are not supplying the amperage that the logic board or tube needs. Ok! Now that my own highly-amateur insights are done with: Any advice on how to proceed? Other places to check for voltages that might help? Maybe there are pics I could take and share that would assist with the diagnosis? I'm determined to resuscitate this glorious little black box, but I need some nudges in what is presumed to be the right direction. Thanks in advance!
  18. Will Mrs. VectrexRoli find out that Roland got new Vectrex stuff? Is Tony´s collectors guide really 100% complete? Is the YASI overlay from VectrexMad well made? And how are the new VecAdapt and the game “Sternenkrieger”?... Well, let´s find out! http://youtu.be/VJaycM161ns
  19. Given the popularity of Princess Rescue what are the chances of something like that working on the Vectrex?
  20. Is there a Vectrex ROM ripper/downloader? I have a Bedlam EEPROM prototype and would like to download the ROMs. Thanks
  21. hi there, it is done, after the atari 2600 game AXE, here the latest real retro game SQUAREZ 2015. it is a demake of a quite addictive flash game. it is simple: make as much points as possible. collect the bonus and avoid the squares. simple to understand. but don't be too greedy! of course programmed in assembler (much more fun than the 6502 on atari2600). but don't look into the code - i will never get into the assembler heaven with this. the game was tested with ParaJVE (Emulator) and on one my real vectrex. the vectrex is quite a cool hardware with cool libraries. quite a cool game engine (we had to say in our days .-). i will never understand why atari didn't brought this out itself - they were the masters of vectors. after the vectrex shootemup (on this i work at the moment) i would like to finish my intellivision game. is there someone who would sell me a multicard, so that i can test the software on real hardware? thanks for any help or tipp or someone who would sell it to me. have fun [email protected] ;*************************************************************************** ; SQUAREZ 2o15 BY LA1N ; (A RE(DE)MAKE OF THE WELL ; KNOWN FLASH GAME SQUARES) ;*************************************************************************** ; ; @ixistenz ; ; THIS IS A DEMAKE OF THE FLASH GAME SQUARES (2002)! ; I THOUGHT IT IS A SIMPLE GAMEMECHANIC HHH ; CODED IT AFTER AXE (ATARI 2600) AND INTELLIVISION GAME* ; * NOT YET RELEASED ; ; MECHANICS: MAKE AS MUCH POINTS AS POSSIBLE. ; COLLECT FOR POINTS.

  23. I recently rescued a Vectrex from a crumbling abandoned building. After i had replaced the cord, i figured out it does not work. There is no sound but the normal humming. Does anyone know if i could repair this?
  24. Saw this mentioned by Chris Romero and I'm intrigued... ..... and I played the real McCoy a couple years ago....
