Thanks for the link re multicart!
I think Richards Vectrex Flash Cart is better
http://www.vectrex.biz/

I like this one the best:
72 Game Multicart
£29.99 - £49.99

Bargain! :)

You can get a new belt for £1. Dead easy to replace.

But that would cost more than he paid for the computer  :o

But a working drive would improve the value of the machine. Now worth more than £1.99 (Before any says - yes worth more than £2! )

Well got the Amstrad, haven't had chance to set it up and try it yet, and the guy wouldn't even take the 99p from me, so a free computer !!!!

Thanks again, have emailed the 'raven's retro nest' to see when the next batch is available (or if they have any spare for sale). Just awaiting a response.

The week before i picked up my Vectrex i saw one on eBay but forgot all about it until after the bidding closed. It went for about £9.00 :-(

£47 is still a good price with the second controller and the other bits you got. They generally reach around £50.

The £9 one might have had a fault or problem or something (like both of mine do!)

I am sure they will make more, but if you get stuck, I also have a Vecflash which I do not use that I would sell for £40 (normally $80).

Or failing that ask Phu to make something using this guide:

Only joking Phu ;D

£79+Shipping, probably a bit high, but I would want the 128-in-1 if I bought a console anyway and they are £80 at current exchange rate
