Images and info. for each Vectorade created will be archived in the Vectorcade Owner's Gallery. The only custom configurations that will be available for the Vectorcade are: 1) Color Combination Choice, & 2) Joystick on Right side instead of the Left side with buttons (4,3,2,1) from left to right. Currently, the way the joystick and buttons are wired for use with the Vectrex makes it too difficult to offer a universal output connection, which could be adapted to other gaming systems. However, you can easily remove the wiring harness inside and create your own. It would be possible to wire it so each of the 4 buttons, and each joystick direction pulls low to ground using the 9 pin cable...then you could create your own adapters for any game system you want, including the Vectrex. Or just re-wire it for the particular game system. Although, I wouldn't think most would want to do that since the Vectorcade was created specifically for the Vectrex with the same joystick and button layout as the original controller.
VECTORCADE PRODUCTION HAS BEEN PUT ON TEMPORARY HOLD UNTIL I CAN FIND MORE TIME TO WORK ON THEM. THE WAY THEY ARE ORDERED MAY OR MAY NOT CHANGE WHEN I START BACK UP. THIS IS MAINLY DUE TO PERSONAL REASONS, BUT I ASSURE YOU, PRODUCTION WILL CONTINUE AS SOON AS I FREE UP SOME TIME.
THIS WILL NOT EFFECT UNITS ALREADY ORDERED AND PAID FOR, AND THERE ARE ABOUT 5 ORDERS UNPAID AT THIS TIME THAT I WILL HONOR ONCE A PAYMENT IS SENT.
The particular Vectorcade shown above is a prototype. Production units will look exactly the same, except better.
