the new Vectrex
Flash Cart!!!


3D printed shell and pcb only included.
No ROMs included.

Out of stock


Warning! This project is still under development!
However this is a fully operational version.

Vextreme is an Open-Source Vectrex Flash Cart

16MB of internal storage – most games are 4-8kb for Vectrex so 2-4 THOUSAND games can fit inside!
There is however one ROM out there that is a full 10MB, most other carts cannot play this game but the Vextreme can!
It’s called Bad Apple, it’s just a demo, but it will blow your mind that the Vectrex can run this at all!
Supports the bank switching mechanism used by some homebrew.

No ROMs will be included on this cart however due to legal reasons!

Operation is simple: Connect via USB to any device (computer, phone, etc) and the cart is detected as a USB thumb drive. Then simply copy games to it. The games list is read internally and its menu is automatically generated like users have come to expect from modern flash-carts like EverDrives.

OpenSource project by Technobly and Rattboi:

– Hold and organize to your hearts content, hundreds of Vectrex games with .bin or .vec extensions.
– Load games onto VEXTREME without ever removing it from the Vextrex, if you wish.
– Act as a developer tool to quickly launch a game from Vide or your preferred toolchain on real hardware within seconds of compile.
– Play Polar Rescue and Animaction just fine, and all other GCE titles.
– Has support for RGB LED animations from within your custom Vectrex game. Easy to modify existing games as well with an example on github for Veccy Bird. v0.3/v0.4 hardware has an external RGB LED connector as well, so you can run 1000’s of LEDs all over the place if you wish… all addressable from the Vectrex.
– Save/Load High Score from any game that uses the Vectrex’s built in high score feature, automatically.
– Play the Bad Apple demo video.
– Play a demo version of the arcade version of Asteroids.

VEXTREME will be able to sometime in the future:
– Support more MAME arcade emulation
– Run the Voom demo
– Have even more options for High Score saving
– Have more options for specifying which areas of RAM are available beyond that available for Animaction right now.
– Have options for customizing the RGB LEDs on board (brightness 0 – 100%)
– Have a screensaver / mini game
– Support Vectorblade by Malban Vide (note: this might require v2.x of VEXTREME which will have a new beefier MCU, but we might be able to do this currently with a software update).
– Support VecForth by Phillip Eaton
– Support easier drag and drop system firmware updates
