Hey Jeff,

I would be very interested in a K6000/6100 group. This is a monitor that comes up often for repair help in the forums. I try to help others like the people that have helped me. After twenty years of vector monitor work I have some brain benders from time to time as well. I live in Kansas City and except the few parts I have sold to other members I would be interested in dead parts that are not available in the Midwest anymore as they become scarce. You might consider widening the forum to the Amplifone, Electrohome, and others to make it the “vector monitor group”.

That's the beauty, no camera, you can do the chat in your moo moo and slippers, whatever helps you develop for the iPhone or otherwise.

No vector games in my collection... Yet... However, was at a fellow collectors (Alan173) place a few weeks back and I must say "ASTEROIDS ROCKS". In fact, Alan173 has an even better one in his garage that he hasn't worked on yet and I keep joking about storing one of them for him. I can honestly say that after playing it I will most own a vector game in my collection sooner than later. What I'd really love is a Space Fury but they don't seem to come around often (and that cabinet is horrible looking).

Can I do the chat standing up? :-)

My favorite Vector Game would have to be Cosmic Chasm! A mesmerizing, exciting adventure game with super vivid, vector eye-candy. This was the final Vector Game released by Cinematronics. What was totally cool at the time that it was released, was that I already had the game that it was based on...also Cosmic Chasm, but for the Vectrex! This was the very first console game to be converted into an arcade game, and while I only have my memories of the arcade version, I can fire up my Vectrex version any day of the week!

Vector games rock, everything from the colors to the detail is just amazing.

My favorite would definately be Gravitar (love the challenge...I'm getting better every day) with Major Havoc close behind. (The graphics are just amazing on Major Havoc, not to mentioned the cool multi-stage gameplay)

I also really like the unique gameplay of Quantum... too bad it's such a rare game.

I've also been intrigued by Vectorbeam's "Warrior" game. The art on the game is so cool with it's classic knights, dark castles and blazing swords. Also, I like how the game is mirrored over a blacklight background, and how detailed and realistic the knights are.

My thoughts? : Vector games are among the best ever! :) There's just something about the vector screens (the color vectors especially) that is beyond awesome. When I have all of mine on and lined up next to each other, it is quite a sight, particularly in the dark.

The best of them: Tempest. But I enjoy all of the others including Asteroids, Quantum, Star Wars, Black Widow, Space Duel, Major Havoc, and even Zektor (which I play sometimes on my Star Trek multigame). Heck, I'm even one of the guys who really enjoys a challenging game of Gravitar!

And I have to also mention the Cinematronics series...I particularly liked Demon (Rock-Ola) and Rip Off.

Anyway, I've loved the vector games from the moment I first played Space Wars back when it was first released...
