I got to play Fix it Felix at the arcade in Disneyland just after the movie came out. The cabs were set to free-play. Most kids just walked buy them.... It was strange seeing this as I grew up during the Golden Age of arcades. It was a really fun game. I might have to visit my local Walmart this week and grab one for my desk.

Vectrex is an amazing system. It's truly unique. I never bought one because I spoke with a person who repaired them and that conversation put me off. Shielded speaker upgrades, wire fixes, caps, controller issues, etc. Plus the 3D goggles are super expensive! lol. I would love to see the games ported to the VB! I played some of them on a PSP EMU, and even started a project to miniaturize and print the overlays for my PSP. My favorite thing about the Vectrex is that it became more popular after they stopped selling it. The Vectex has more homebrew than commercial releases now!

I hope you enjoy it!

Hi,
Which reproduction is this? Is this the cart from the CIB only release that was available on Uncle Tusk's site or is this from another source? Would it be possible to see a photo of the PCB?

Cheers!!

I've seen the Japanese release of Mario's Tennis in a few different ways. I'm pretty sure it shipped with the VB in Japan. I've seen it in its own small clear plastic bag and I've always assumed it came as the pack-in game this way? I've seen it in a larger bag with a manual. I've even seen it complete in a box. However, I never see the US box unless it was a blockbuster rental box.

So my question is, how exactly was JP Mario's Tennis originally packaged and sold?

this is one of those threads that someone will obviously reply to that any USB cable will work.... but oddly enough, only the USB cable that came with my FB+ has ever worked for me.

From my understanding, this is a way to Flash one of his boards with a ROM. His boards do not use batteries, so in a sense, this is an upgrade to the FB? The cable in the side most likely plugs into a computer's USB.
