There's no rule that requires players play every single game in HSC.  There's also nothing stopping anyone from playing every game without owning any intellivision hardware.  I didn't give vectron much attention until it came up in hsc.  And the controls can even map to a dpad if you want.

I’ve previously explained before that I invested good money to buy an RGB modded Intellivision and I want play all of my games on it. And I do not want to play on emulation because I do not have detachable Intellivision controllers that I could plug into a PC, nor do I have the time and patience to figure all of that out. I will not play Intellivision games on any other controller but the original ones. Those reasons alone prevent me from playing every game here. Some others may not want to play on emulation for similar reasons as well. Just because YOU think there’s nothing stopping YOU doesn’t mean it’s the same way for everyone else.

That's fine.  I don't play every game in hsc either.

But it seems you have all the tools, controllers, programs, extensive knowledge and the means to play every game. Which I don’t. You just CHOOSE not to play all of them. If you did, I bet you would be very dangerous because you are a very good player!

An old computer is all you need.  A generic usb gamepad helps.  Knowledge came from the good people on atariage.  I concede that there are certainly other reasons that could keep someone from participating; but I wouldn't assume what those reasons are.

If Im feeling well soon, I think I can consider a seperate HSC for Intellivision homebrews, 10 games a season adjacent to the regular INTV HSC.

I hope you feel better, sorry to hear that.

 

There are several homebrews available for free that would be great to play.

Maybe we could invite authors to participate when playing each game. I'm sure that would drive some interesting chat throughout the competition.

 

Princess Quest

Copter Command

Sea Venture

Upmonsters

Zombie Madness

Pumpkin Master

Moon Blast

etc

 Vectron could show up bonus style. but Mouse will likely not, and seems to be only be a fav of mine. The new gaming crew here cant stand it.

Vectron is actually not horrible. I've been researching it and 'trying' to learn it. I got thru the first level and it's pretty cool seeing the board light up. My bad for saying it was BAD like the game we do not mention. 

 

So I have played both now, Vectron and the game which we do not mention and there is now no comparison for me. Vectron has potential to be pretty cool and the other game (rhymes with HOUSESLAP) is TERRIBLE, the controls are horrendously bad. Like Biffman says, it makes B&B look good control wise. 😝

 

So I would be on board with this game (Vectron) showing up as a bonus game.... 👍

 

UPDATE: Just got thru the 2nd level on Vectron, it's actually pretty cool. The controls are NOT great though....

Somehow...someway...would love to see AD&D and Space Battle in one of these seasons, maybe as bonus games. Can be scored by number of lives left and difficulty level. Would be awesome to shake things up and see those 2!!!
