I thought I would start a new topic and seperate these from the other thread.
This is a small project to get some high-quality Vectrex Overlays for Retroarch. I have 20 high-quality scans of real Vectrex Game Overlays, and a decent enough quality picture of my mate’s Vectrex from face-on. Here are a couple of examples of my work so far. There is no background image yet, I will include a few including the black background seen here.
I am using Solid’s superb Analogue Shader Pack 3, one taken from the Arcade Vertical section. It’s not perfect for vector graphics, but good enough for now. I will do a large upload of a 20-pack overlay when I am ready - should be this weekend.
Edit:- Decided to upload a small test for anyone to test for me.
Instructions :- Inside the archive is the full Retroarch path. Simply extract all the contents to the same path where your Retroarch resides. If you already have Solid’s Analogue Shader Pack v3 then you can skip them, but still need the Vectrex.cgp in the shaders folder.
Open the file “Vectrex.cfg” found in the config folder and scroll down to line 117 and change the following line
rgui_browser_directory = “D:\Emulators\Vectrex”
to the location of your Vectrex roms.
When you load in a rom you will need to manually change the overlay for the correct game inside Retroarch via the “Onscreen Overlay”. Feedback welcome. Want to try and make the Vectrex really shine in Retroarch.
Last Edit. Played around with various backgrounds and colour styles to give it a sort of 80’s vibe.
