My official request for a VecFever if they are available.

Please I would like to have a couple so I can load some of the link cable games. But even one VecFever would be welcome.

I heard this was the thread to request request for purchase and the creator watches this thread.

Oh, that is different than the one already listed.

 

I can conceive of paying that amount. I'm not sure I would do it or be happy about it, but I can imagine my unemployed self borrowing $300 to buy one right now. Or I would otherwise be willing to part with what Vectrex rarities I still have if that was what was desired.

I can't see paying that much for it... even if I was rich, or my wife didn't kill me over it, my very Scottish spleen would leap up through my neck and throttle my brain first. :P

 

 

(Thank you, Douglas Adams...)

Wow. That is a lot for shipping an import fees. Though I have some destinations charge more just for the duties alone.

 

Are you the one who bought it?

Not with what I earn, lol. Plus, I make a point of not buying from anyone using the Global Shipping Program. I rather let customs do the deed as sometimes items get through unhindered.

I think another option would be a kickstarter type funding effort and use a pcb fab house to do all the pcb manufacture and soldering work. PCBWay and others can do assembly of these for you for pretty cheap if assembly time is a concern.

 

I'm sure there's a lot of people here that would throw money at a gofundme/kickstarter page for one or more copies. That way he doesn't loose his IP by releasing the design and source, and he also doesn't have to do a lot of work to get them made.

 

Heck, even have them bulk shipped to someone willing to mail them out for a free copy of their own cart.

Yeah it really is a slick set up. The original test vids from malban 6 months ago really got the loins tingling, tomson dropped some bread crumbs on me about a month ago and I upgraded my cart. Did tests with a full desktop but wondered how small could I go with it. Loaded the drivers and vecmame on a $80 windows tablet with the mgalaxy front end a small bluetooth kb and can speaker. Been testing a fw that adds the Atari driving controller "spinner" support for the og spinner coin op games and newer image calibration settings options. Just visually jaw dropping fantastically fun stuff.

 

 

good day.

I finally got a Vectrex about a week ago, after many years of looking for one I could reasonably get - now Im playing catch-up discovering all the great homebrew games and accessories that have been made. Id be interested in a VecFever if they are ever available again!

Thanks so much for posting these pics! I asked for some pictures like this on the Vectrex fans Unite Facebook group, but nobody would help a brother out. A couple people did finally help me though, thankfully but this was exactly what I was looking for.. a picture explains a thousand words. Thanks again!

Going through some fw tests and the spinner support is fantastic. I experimented with epoxying some nuts into the knob (Giggidy) to give it some mass and it worked out really well. Has a good feel and seems much easier to turn.

 

 

good day.

That's going to be my next project.. Building a whole new controller or possibly just adding a spinner into one of my existing controllers that I've already built. Great seeing stuff like this.. Keep up the good work man! :thumbsup:
