I still really want a Vectrex, I was at an event a couple of weeks ago and spent ages playing Vector Pilot - such a fabulous game.
I see that a couple of years ago I posted about being on the fence about getting a Vectrex. As I recently talked about (on various podcast episodes) I recently did get one! And it is really quite awesome. I'll have to check out Vector Pilot.
It deserved a resurrection, the Vectrex is awesome!
I finally am in the Vectrex club, wanted one for years.
Have 3 games and look forward to the hunt.
Is the ROM cart still available for purchase anywhere?
The links I find all seem to be dead.
I've just had to fix mine. The display started to go completely off intermittently. It just kept getting worse until one did it didn't come on. Luckily there are loads of videos on youTube with people fixing and diagnosing problems on the Vectrex.
None were exactly the same as mine but they helped me pin it down to the -13V power line. I eventually found that one of the signal diodes had gone. I replaced it and it is back in a working state again although it isn't quite perfect. There are some renovations I discovered while I was looking for help on t'internet I might try some of those.
