  • Vectrev controller

    My Vectrex came without a controller so I'm building my own Vectrev controller.[emoji16]
    I bought all the parts on Ebay. Here are the item numbers for some of the main bits.
    Case 201121453748
    Joystick 253169946622

    Buttons 282696073230

    The case turned out to be a bit small but it'll do for now.
    Here's the circuit and the board I made.


    And the case with the buttons and joystick fitted.


    I've just got to wire it up when the plug and cable arrive. I should have the replacement transformer by then for my console.
    Can someone tell me which are the most commonly used and least used button numbers so I can wire the red button as most and blue as least used.
    Cheers Trev

    4 is the most common, working back to least common. So 3 next common and 2 and 1 seldom being used.

    Fantastic post btw!

        I might try these parts if I make a second controller and put the buttons in a diamond formation on the right.
        Case 191321261334
        Joystick 253169946622
        Buttons 282696073230
        Lead 222615690095 (and cut the socket off)
        Strain relief 271418619961 (no crude jokes please[emoji16])
        Cheers Trev

          Very cool Trev. I just bought a VecAdapt and a cheap megadrive controller off eBay for $2.

            you're a clever man Trev!

            you should get some sort of auto level-up for building your own vectrex controller
