  1. Hi. Glad you like the set, i had a lot of fun making it whilst on furlough and now i'm back at work, yeah, i'm no longer updating this set. You;re right, i think homebrew has slowed down a bit. Vectrex certainly has. That said, i am keeping an eye on new releases, and newly found rare roms and keeping a list for a potential update pack in future to catch the set up again. So about Spikes Circus. As these are images for roms, and Spikes Circus (to my knowledge) is not available as a rom, there is no point in an image. There are many other games out there on carts only where i haven't created an image too. If a rom file does indeed exist, get it into my grubby mitts and i will make an image for you. Regards. Simon.
  2. Not sure if its due to people going back to work (me included) that homebrew has slowed down, but since my last release i've kept an eye out and nothing new has presented itself so far. I am now, as i said, back at work, so time is very limited for me now anyway. The current version uploaded here and shared on my googledrive link is possibly the last package i release. However, i will continue to add new files, so if something new does come along, i may create a cover and chuck it in my googledrive. What i might not have time for is telling the world. So basically, i'm just telling you, the news is there is no news. Ha!
  3. All 3 games available for free (free homebrew releases), from here... http://tacticalneuronics.com/content/main.asp
  4. And no sooner do i say theres nothing new... 3 new games found and added by John Reder. Covers are done and uploaded to GDrive for now. Space Force Handy Pick Hank Vectrex UFO enjoy.
  5. Quick update for Dragon57 and the few following along... There has been no new activity lately, no messages regards errors or omissions, so nothing new has been created or nothing altered. So basically, v1.3 is still current. 1 more week of furlough and then back to work for me.
  6. 41 is approximately the number of original game releases which are now all freeware (officially made freeware by the current copyright owners). The rest are made up of scene demos, homebrew and hacks of those free games. There is a ton of great stuff made by homebrewers. Google "Vectrex Tosec" and you'll find links to rom sets on Archive.org that are bigger than Mames, but does have junk in (bad dumps, clone dumps etc). Better still, search for "Vectrex DrSnuggles" for a very large rom collection, all downloadable via this guys online java emulator github page. This DrSnuggles set is as good as i've found online and only contains freely distributable roms (but thats pretty much all of them). You'll have to hunt around for any stragglers. Some come from a Vectrex fans facebook group where the most prolific homebrewers hang out. 281 have been collected from many sources over the last couple of months, a lot of work, even using wayback machine to get some of them...
  7. Is there a faster way to add these to Launchbox? Using a better naming convention maybe? So the files can just be dropped into the right media folder and they get picked up? For instance, when you export files they are named "Clean Sweep-01", "Clean Sweep-02" etc. If these file names are based upon the rom file names when they were added, then i guess everyones would be different? I suppose then that this would never work for everyone and it would remain a manual process.
  8. What an awesome set of files. 3 sets, comprising 2D Carts, 3D carts and 3D boxes. These areas in the Vectrex art were so poor, now they can be 100% filled and unified. Great stuff. All downloaded, putting them into place now!
    Really great addition to the flat 2d covers, fills out the Vectrex art areas in Launchbox beautifully. I think people will go mad for these, really top work, not something i would ever have attempted. And done way quicker than mine all took - lol. I'll try to keep you informed of changes to the 2D set so your Carts and 3D sets can stay up to date too. Thanks for making these.
  9. Very cool Dragon57, i'll post a review and comment etc. in the downloads area. I hope between us, at least in the short term (this was a lockdown project for me and i'm still locked down for approx 3 more weeks as i type) we can keep all these sets in line. Your call, but if you do an update set, you could call it v1.4 (thats my next release number), to get our pack numbers lined up? Totally up to you. Great job on the set! Simon.
  10. v1.3 pack on gdrive and here in the downloads area. Does anyone have a .bin file for "Head On" game? I think it was only sold as a cart and now sold out, so may not exist as a rom, but i'd really like this one. And does anyone have any more requests, or files i'm missing. Thanks.
  11. 6 new files uploaded to update my cover set. All are on my GDrive now. They are Birds Of Prey, Hexed, Omega Chase, Top Gun, Vec-Fu and Vector 21. These all have new logos which were kindly donated to me recently. Enjoy.
  12. 2 new images and 1 updated image added to Googledrive. New - The J-Game New - Xandoz Updt - Stevedore (Added "Microban" subtitle as more releases are coming with different level sets) Not done a pack update so GDrive only for now.
  13. v1.2 is uploaded to the downloads area and my googledrive. Single files are on my GDrive too. 3 US versions of covers added and their corresponding UK versions updated. NB// I am no longer going to upload an update pack (zipped) or leave old versions on my googledrive. I'll maintain a single pack and only the readme and version number will need to be updated. The whole pack is only around 55mb anyway, tiny, so should be no bother to just download the whole thing each time i think.
  14. OK, i've done a Web Wars logo and built the cover. I've updated the Web Warp cover as well to match the placement of logo. Both have the correct logo in the main image at the bottom too. Filenames will be updated for these to show the UK / US differences. I've also done the same with Blitz Action Football / Blitz Action Soccer. 2 new files will come for these too. And i'm about to create a "Soccer Football" one to go with the "Heads Up Action Soccer" title. I think these are the only 3 i will be making duplicate covers for as they have diffferent titles and logos. I'm definately not starting to make multi region covers and multiple versions of the same thing across this whole set. Check in later today for the updated pack.
