Vectrex Joystick Interface Board

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've created a little interface PCB for the vectrex. It offers an alternative to the digital joystick hack. Unlike the old hack that requires you to attach some switches to +5 and some to -5, this one uses a common ground, it makes it much simpler to wire. Iw has originally designed so i could attach an asteroids control panel to my vectrex without having to hack up the original wiring.

Anyway if you're building digital joysticks for the vectrex or hooking a vectrex to an arcade cabinet, this may be of interest to you. Check it out.
