  2. 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
  3. So I recently bought Vectorblade and Protector/YASI from Packrat, and immediately having a Space Invaders itch, I popped in the latter and was immediately greeted for the first time with the awesome menu music that I assume a lot here are familiar with A little backstory about myself, I'm part of the Clone Hero community (if you're unaware, I assume you've heard of the game Guitar Hero; it's a free-to-play clone of those games) and basically, what I do is I take music that I think would be fun to play, and I make it playable on the game. Immediately, I was interested in doing what I could with the menu music from Protector/YASI. I messaged the guy behind Packrat about it asking if I was allowed to have a ROM file sent to me to try to rip the music, since I just bought the game. When he got back to me though, he said that he couldn't get a hold of the original creator and was therefore (understandably so) hesitant to share a ROM file without permission. Unfortunately, this was my only lead, as I do not have a Vectrex cart reader for my PC. I would like to clarify: I am NOT asking for a free ROM of this game (I, admittedly, don't even know if Homebrew ROMs follow the same rules as officially licensed ones. A ROM would fix my predicament, but I don't wanna accidentally break rules by asking for a ROM when I'm not supposed to or something. If anyone needed me to, I could provide proof that I own the game), I am only interested in getting my hands on an acceptable-quality audio file of the menu music. I was wondering if anyone else had ever ripped this audio, or if anyone has the ROM on their PC to be able to do so for me? (Or alternatively, I don't suppose anyone here knows how to get a hold of Alex Herbert?)
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. So, I made a game for the Vectrex some time ago called 'Circus Vectrex' that was supposed to be just a tongue-in-cheek take on the classic 'Circus Atari' game. At one point I was thinking about polishing this game off, as it was, and releasing it as a cartridge. I never did get around to it as the cost was a bit high for me at the time, and the game had a bit too much drift on some of the testers Vectrex. Although it seemed fine on mine? Since then I've had a few people tell me I should make the start jump and in-game jump mechanic more like the Atari game and release it. So I've come to ask for, and would appreciate, some honest answers from people who are likely to know both systems. Do you think this game is good enough / worth attempting to convert so it plays the same as the 'Circus Atari' game? I've added a short video (sorry no sound, my bad) and an online playable link below so you can get an idea of the game. https://drsnuggles.github.io/jsvecx/?rom=Circus Or have a look on my (old) blog: http://garrysgamingblog.blogspot.com/p/programming-projects.html Thing is I now have 10 spare eproms to do this with, as I've decided to use a writable chip with the full version of my 'Trapped' proof of concept game. (If it ever gets done) So do you honestly think it's a worthwhile project or not (I've more projects than time just now ) and your opinion would be welcome.
  7. Hello all. I am looking for a Vectrex console in good, working condition, preferably with a working controller as well. Games and overlays are not needed. I am willing to entertain all reasonable offers. Thanks!

  9. Hey all, Has anyone made a routine to print a string rotated by 90 or 270 degrees? I'm looking at supporting a horizontal orientation and wondered if there was a known solution out there already. Cheers!
  10. I love vectrex homebrews and all new games for our retro consoles..... Anyway what's your favorite homebrew for the vectrex. By the way later this year is the vectrex's anniversary!! My favorite homebrew is from http://www.classicgamecreations.com/ , Vecmania!

  15. 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.

  16. 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!
  17. Here I show you 3 homebrew games for the Vectrex: V-Frogger, Brecher and a preview for the upcoming game Vector Patrol.
  18. 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.
  19. Just put up some nice Vectrex bundles on eBay. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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 + manual + overlay 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.
  22. When I was developing the MiniVex Pedal I, the foot pedal add-on for Vectrex and Atari, I received a suggestion to make multiple units link up, so that more than one button could be interfaced with a pedal (ie:gas and brakes for driving games.) So I've been hemming and hawing over how to add jacks to an already crowded selector box, among numerous other details, and...just staring at them last night, the setup in the photo happened. No revisions whatsoever. And it works perfectly. Over TWO MONTHS since I received that suggestion! SMACK! (Sound of palm slapping forehead.) Does wisdom increase with age? I'm having serious doubts. Larry
  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. Hi, just wanted to start a thread here for my next Vectrex game (my first was Big Blue). I have done no programming since the end of May but will pick things up again now summer is over. This was the last video I recorded: I added a vulture that dropped power ups since that video. Originally the next game was going to be Frontier which will be a wild west adventure game... but I think I will now release this as Outlaw Hill (guess the games it's inspired by Currently it's 2 player Vs only but I will try to add an AI opponent... if that doesn't work out I will add a separate 1 player game as I know 2 player only games aren't always popular. Doubt this will be out until 2018 but I'll keep the updates coming. www.vectorrepublic.co.uk
