Hello all,

 

Does anyone have this working in Windows 10?

 

Thank you

I have no issues using it with Windows 10.

Richard, is there any update on the VecMulti status? Would it help you if we paid in advance for them so you have less upfront cost issues?

Thanks and best wishes,

joe

Sorry for the delay.

 

I have isolated the problem, but it is needing a hardware redesign to correct it. This is taking time as a new PCB needs to be made.

Super happy you found this issue.  Happy to be patient as this is well worth waiting for.

Can I ask how much these are? I have an old Vec Flash Cart with the old miniUSB socket, I bought years ago, but have a feeling it’s like the Atari Crocodile ones, so the console can’t be powered up while connected for file transfer. An SD and life Dev capable cart would be more convenient

Just wanted to say that I've been using the new VecFlash cart and it's awexome!  Easy to iterate and add new games to the cart and the flashing process is fast.  If you are going to be running an SD card back and forth to your computer, I'd argue VecFlash is just as easy if not more so.  If you want to have a pile of unmarked SD cards to chose from, that's another bag of fun.

 

@Richard H. can you explain how one might put VecFlash in dev mode?  Is that possible or is that only possible with VecMulti?  I'm also wondering if this can be integrated into Vide for quick development of games xD

Great news that a fix is in the works.

 

Can somebody please state the exact problem, for new guys and me who isn't sure about the issue?  

 

Do the graphics get out of whack for all games, or only on certain ones? I don't think mine has a problem but I would like to troublesshoot it. From what I gather, only certain consoles are affected.

 

Thanks in advance!

Just the menu (not the games) gets messed up.

 

 

On my console the menu and also the games would not work correctly, sometimes nothing would come up on the screen.  Yet VecFlash works perfect.

Of course because the menu is launched first before games, whatever its doing wrong could trickle into effecting the game. So maybe the fix is the solution for both in my case?

 

When you're ready to test your new revision of the hardware for VecMulti, I would be happy to buy and make sure its working on my console if it sounds like a more extreme case.

I'd also like to be clear that both menu and games were not working on either vecmulti cart purchased on either of my vectrex systems, not just menu.

The one I sent you was worse than the other.

Since a new pcb is required I assume this means you need me to also send the 2 carts back for fixing.  Dont suppose there is some other sort of option we can work out as the guy who sent your the logic board from my messed up system?

Shipping is quite expensive from me to you as I've already done it twice :)

 

thank you

Very nice, well done - it could have a sticker covering the entire surface - or even wrap around the edge and whole bottom part. Unless one feels the 3D print is nice and stylish.  ;-) 

Does the smaller version allow it to be inserted up-side-down? Maybe it's equipped with a mercury switch that breaks 5V if it's inserted the wrong way?  ;-)  :D :D

Is this the final revision of the new model or are you still doing testing?

 

Final version.

 

I need to send you one to confirm it's OK on your system.

 

(PM me your address)
