  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. I pondered for a while over whether i should do the originals where the titles are different. Theres the football / soccer one too. As i am in the UK, i did the Warp one and only kept the Warp rom. I think a lot of people will probably have the variants, i'll see what i can do today. I'm not doing Jap covers !!!!
  5. v1.1 is now uploaded hereand ready to grab. I've updated my googledrive too with a full v1.1 pack, an update pack and the individual files. Readme is updated listing the changes and additions. Enjoy.
  6. I've had a list or two sent to me of missing roms/images, mostly via Facebook. I've scanned through them and the upshot is, 13 more roms added. This means 13 new images to create. These are... 3D Demo (2000) (Christopher Salomon) 3D Vector Space Cab (2017) (Fell^DSS RiFT TRSi) All Your Base (2001) (Manu Parssinen) Berzerk Ultimate RC1 (2019) (Christopher Salomon) City Bomber (2007) (Andrew Coleman) Doodle v1.0 (2015) (Chris Malcolm) Monster House (1998) (Garry Grierson) Philly Classic 3 Demo (2002) (Christopher Tumber) Quick Shot v1.01 (2016) (Chris Malcolm) SinZ (2015) (La1n) This Is Just A Non Playable Demo (1999) (Martin Balazs) Very Vectight (2014) (Pex Mahoney Tufvesson) V-Theremin v1.01 (2015) (Chris Malcolm) I'll be starting these images tomorrow and uploading to my googledrive updates folder as usual. If i get to 20 update files then i will re-zip them into a v1.1 pack and reupload here as well. So.... More tomorrow.
  7. Hi neil9000 - All Vectrex roms are freeware to my knowledge, MB and GCE released all the commercial roms for free use and everything else is homebrew and released for free. So these links should have been okay ?
  8. A search on google for "Vectrex Tosec" should lead you to a collection on Archive.org. Thats got a ton in it. Thats the first set i grabbed. It has a lot of junk though, dupes, bad dumps, clones etc. So needs filtering a bit. Link Removed There is also an online emulator that has a great rom set behind it. Following that emulator to its github page lets you get at the individual roms too... This is probably the largest collection i've found, lots of homebrew and weird and wonderful stuff and very up to date (but not quite). Link removed These 2 links should see anyones collection hit 200+ HTH
  9. Dragon57, thanks so much for the review. I'm in 3rd place on the leaderboard !! What do i win ?
  10. Glad you like them. Any updates, roms, new covers just ask. my email is in the readme. Cheers. (i would need the missing roms)
  11. Another update added. YMusic #1 added to my romset, so a cover is made. Its on googledrive in the updates folder.
  12. Well i uploaded 2 updates already to the googledrive... KnightEx and Oregon Trail. KnightEx, i found a larger source logo, so re-cropped it for my cover and made it slightly larger. Not a major update. Oregon Trail though, that now has a proper logo and looks much nicer. Worth grabbing that one at least. I'll catch up again tomorrow.
  13. A 53mb zip of all 260 images is now uploaded to the forums "Downloads" area. Looks like its showing up okay for people, so you can jump on these now. File is here... I've also uploaded the zip, all 260 singular files, and the readme, to my googledrive. That can be found here... https://drive.google.com/open?id=1hK-FLANqWD_dLclT82UpYACHikdX4X4f&fbclid=IwAR2InXZyjOWCFOAWEif0pH9TzmyKktyXhkXQgD745ansUhg6rUJt-euD2cs Please check the readme, especially if you've been following along and enjoy the files. Simon.

    Vectrex 2D Front Cover Box Art - By Simon Quincey - hitt.man@ntlworld.com So i added all my Vectrex roms (113 at the time) to Launchbox, i let it do its "thing" and the artwork it downloaded was horrendous. Different sizes, wildly different qualities, some real, some custom and a whole load missing. Like 70% missing! Every rom needs an image, they should all be the same size and style too. I know, i'll make my own set using anything i can find online. 113 roms, how long can it take? If theres no artwork online i'll just use a screenshot from emulation. Every search for more images, lead me to more websites, more information and more roms. I joined a very cool Facebook group on 28th April, to learn more and find more artwork and there were plenty of helpful people there. There were also more roms... From the "Vectrex Fans Unite" Facebook group i would like to thank everyone for the encouragement and support. And particular thanks to these guys who provided much needed original artwork to complete this cover set. Graham Toal Chris Malcolm Jacek Selanski David Flemming Tony Holcomb Alan McClelland Manu Parssinen Steven Salter John Blythe If you helped me out and i missed your name here, sorry, but i do thank you. Also, from the Launchbox thread i started and did my daily progress updates to, i would like to thank... Lukeyboy67 Starbuck Dragon57 ...for the ongoing support. I started at 113 roms but ended up with 260! Seemed never ending but i've finally done it. So here in this pack are 260 unified images, all following the same design template, same resolution (1024x800) and (as much as possible) the same quality level. I have done the best i can with the online artwork i could find. I've used original box scans where possible, i've used other peoples custom box artwork at times, i've upscaled some, cleaned others, totally dumped and rebuilt others. I've used various emulators to capture screenshots and built totally new logos for some. Its been a lot of work and after about 6-7 weeks or so, i'm done... for now... Although this set of images was selfishly only going to be for myself to begin with, after sharing what i was doing it seemed there were others who were interested in using these. I was asked if i would share them, so thats what i'm doing. Of course, they are free to use, i don't own any of this. This set should now be uploaded to the Launchbox website/forum as a pack/zip and to my own GoogleDrive too. My GoogleDrive will also hold these as individual files and i'll have an area for new and updated files. The link to my GoogleDrive will be shared to both the Launchbox forum and Facebook group. Updates to this pack, error fixes, new covers, cover requests etc. may only be uploaded to my GoogleDrive. So if you have read all this waffle and you are using these images, please check there for new files. I will take requests for covers, if i've missed a rom and you still have artwork gaps after adding this set, just ask. I will fix any errors you spot too. All i ask is you request by email (top and bottom of this text), and if its for a rom i don't have, you send me that rom. I will update covers too if you have improved artwork, you just need to send me it. Comments, roms, requests, fixes, artwork etc. to... hitt.man@ntlworld.com Have fun.
