*** NEW VERSION as of 9/2017 ***

This version of my multi-cart was just released in mid-September. It was redesigned with increased capacity and it now contains 101 TITLES compared to the previous version which had 58.
There are several differences between the last revision (2.5) and the current version 3.0. The menu software has been re-written to add several features such as joystick control, the PCB was redesigned to accommodate a larger capacity chip, the label is professionally printed on vinyl stock, among other subtle differences.


The list of titles below is comprised of the entire commercially-released Vectrex library less one title – AnimAction. The rest of the 101 titles is chock full of homebrew games, demos, prototypes and even some college programming project entries!

Sean explains what’s New in v3.0:

In addition to all of the new games, I’ve made several enhancements to the menu software/operation. Here’s what you will find…

101 GAMES! The last version of the mutli-cart contained 58 titles. I have nearly DOUBLED the number of games included on the cart by doubling the memory capacity.

I’ve added a bunch of new games including many from BinaryStar software and several others who granted me permission to include their work.

Also of note are the titles that came from the German University of Pforzheim where professor Peer Johannsen is using the Vectrex as a tool to teach videogame design. His students have come up with some great games for the Vectrex and I have been given permission to include some of them on my multi-cart!

For the first time, I have a BOX available for the multi-cart! Half the fun of building a collection is being able to sit back and admire what you’ve built in some sort of a cool display of shelves and shelves full of games. In order to properly display and protect your multi-cart, I’ve always felt that it would be cool if it had a box so it could stand on the shelf with the rest of the Vectrex collection.
It is the exact size and shape of original Vectrex boxes and comes with an insert to hold the multi-cart inside of the box.

There were a couple of bugs in the previous version of the menu software that I was never able to quite figure out. One, in particular, that a few people mentioned to me occurred when scrolling through the list back and forth too many times…the menu would crash sometimes. That bug has been fixed. I’ve scrolled through the list hundreds of times and never had a problem.

Instead of just the action buttons, now the JOYSTICK can be used to scroll up, down, page left and page right!

The buttons still work as before with two small changes. Button #3 is now a “home” button. If you’ve scrolled back and forth too many times and have lost your place, simply hit button #3 to go back to the beginning of the menu. Button #4 starts the game now which is different from previous versions of the multi-cart that used button #3 to start the game.

The edge connector on the cartridge PCB that plugs into the Vectrex has been regular solder in the past. On this version I had it gold-plated.

The newly-redesigned label is professionally printed on vinyl stock so it is much more resistant to damage or smudging than the previous labels were.

As silly as it sounds, it always bugged me that the screw that held together my multi-cart was silver but the original screws were black. I sourced black screws for this version! 🙂
