Well great.

Sorry, I just wrote an elaborate and eloquent post, then realized in my burgeoning senility that this is the wrong forum and erased it all. So... uhm, how's your Vextrex doing? Here's mine. Does anyone think an updated PiTrex image will ever be released?

I think that emphasis has shifted from Pitrex to Vecfever so it's kind of doubtful that it will get an update any time soon. It's a cool piece of kit but it still has a long ways to go before it's ready for primetime. I have one but very rarely use it as I have a Vecmulti for playing my images. Here's hoping that the Vecfever will someday be available in quantity so that people who want one can actually get their hands on it.

I don't think the emphasis ever shifted away from the VecFever being the top Vectrex Flash multicart cart to own. VecFever software has always made it so.

 

However, PiTrex has flexibility in other ways that VecFever does not. PiTrex also has lower costs to acquire, and general accessibility to actually obtain one in real live. All these are the strengths of the PiTrex. 

 

As to the question of a new PiTrex image, I suggest you jump in a help make one. Also follow PiTrex development on github.

PiTrex is an amazing piece of tech, just needs more active developers to push it to the next level (hopefully we will find somebody with programming skills soon). I have been using it for a while and I am very happy with it. However, when I see new YouTube videos of VecFever games, its like woooow... ;)

I remember when people enjoyed Vectrex games and didn't feel the need to lobotomize the system to have fun.

They still don't "need to lobotomize the system" to have fun.
