Binder Hardcopies of Vectrex Source Code

These are a bit pricey at the opening bid, but are a truly unique item and definately something a Vectrex collector would be proud to own.

It`s a pair of binders with the original source code for two programs, the internal “executive” ROM and the game Minestorm.

Number one includes a printout of the original source code for Exec.asm, the 4k internal ROM for the Vectrex, written by Mark Indictor and is 129 pages long. The 1st page includes the following text:

“VECTREX EXECUTIVE REV. B, C:EXEC.ASM”

“REV: B, DATE: 12/28/82, PROG: JJH, COMMENT(S): TITLE PAGES CAN NOW BE ABORTED, DOCUMENTATION CHANGES”

“REV: A, DATE: 09/29/82, PROG: JJH, COMMENT(S): LABEL AND DOCUMENTATION CHANGES”

“REV: -, DATE: 05/16/82, PROG: RELEASE FROM WESTERN TECHNOLOGIES”.

The left column shows the compiled machine code. Next to that is the assembly language. Next to that, on the right, is comments. This printout is said to be an actual copy printed & used at GCE. (it was purchased this from a former GCE employee) Indeed, it is printed on tractor feed paper with a dot matrix printer, so this printout is certainly of that vintage!

At the end is a fair-quality photocopy of the AY-3-8910/8912 Programmable Sound Generator Data Manual, 56 pages long.

This printout is in a brown 3-ring binder that says “Digital Research” & has a sticker over that with “VECTREX EXECUTIVE” handwritten on it.

The second binder has a printout of the original source code for the built-in game of Minestorm, written by Mark Indictor. This is 67 pages long. The 1st page includes the following text:

“SOURCE FILE NAME: MSA2.ASM”

“REV: A, DATE: MM/DD/YY, PROG: JJH, COMMENTS: MODIFIED TO REFLECT ‘EXECUTIVE’ REV. A CHANGES”

“REV: -, DATE: 05/16/82, PROG: RELEASE FROM WESTERN TECHNOLOGIES”.

The left column shows the compiled machine code. Next to that is the assembly language. Next to that, on the right, is comments. This printout appears to be made by an inkjet printer on individual computer paper, reported to have been printed about 12 years ago. Therefore, this actual copy was probably not actually present at GCE or handled by original employees in the Vectrex offices.

At the end is a fair-quality photocopy of the Vectrex HP-3000 Service Manual.

This printout is in a beige 3-ring binder that says “VECTOR: Vector Graphic, Inc.”

Star Fox Life-Sized Fox McCloud Statue – This thing is sweet and would be an awesome addition into any game room.

Large life-size statue of Fox McCloud from Star Fox was released in North America in 1993 by Nintendo of America. It was on a world tour promotion for Nintendo. There were only twenty of these statues made. After the tour they were used in some video game retailers to promote Star Fox, a 3D shooter released for the Super NES on March 1, 1993. Some also were in a few Nintendo companies throughout America. Once the promotion was over, most retailers sold them to customers. This statue stands around 3 and a half feet tall and around 2 feet wide. He is relatively light weight because he is made of plastic. He has screw holes in the bottom of his feet because at one time they had to bolt these rare statues down to prevent them from walking off.
