Christopher Tumber tweaked the code a lot. Now it’s running at 48 fps (instead of the 25 before). Now it’s playable on a real Vectrex (I didn’t had one when I wrote it). The source with all the improvements is included.
The MuCaREX is an Multi Cartridge for Vectrex. Quick specs: 1 MiB Flash, 32 KiB RAM, supports multiple cartridges.
(Prototype – Board V0.9)
I’ve just released everything required to build your own one: https://github.com/alexkazik/mucarex
I’ve discovered a way to use a file on a computer as a FireWire Harddisk for another computer. This is a handy way to work with older Apple computers because it’s way easier than burning CD’s or using a read FW HDD.
The setup is not that complicated but still there is some to do.
It took some while but here is the new Vectrex game “P1X3L-pushr”, which is a remake of our own C64 game. The game was created for the Coding Compo at the DoReCo-Party 2013. Sorry that it took that long to make it public.
This is our first Vectrex release and my first steps on the 6809, which seems a great processor.
The archive includes not only the rom file but also the full source – have fun with it!
I’ve just published my 6502 code reorganizer which results in a better compression:
Last weekend I’ve finished my first CPLD experiment, which (of course) was an project for the C64. This small extension is a GeoRAM compatible RAM extension or a EasyFlash like extension. It’s possible to switch between them via software. In other words you can use it as pure ram or load cartridges in the ram and play (instead of burning eprom modules).
- The files loaded/saved don’t have an load address anymore!
- Simple file browser (cmd compatible)
- Keys reassigned (now matches the function)
- Layout optimized
- Help screen added
- Removed the “Modulgenerator”
- SMON or Multimonitor – your choice
With this small device you can reset your C64 by holding the Restore key down by 2 seconds.
All you need is an ATtiny and a little more, the price should be less than 2 EURO in total.

If you would like to have a language switch like I have, that can be done.
Do you ever wanted to open a file while logged in a remote server via ssh on your local TextWrangler/BBEdit? Now that’s possible!
TextWrangler/BBEdit can open files per sftp (via ssh). This set of tools allows it you to launch
edit on a remote server, but your local TextWrangler/BBEdit opens the file.

BBEdit: I haven’t tested it, but it should also work. (I do not own BBEdit)
