About a year ago, when I got my GP32 handheld, I put some pics up here
with it running a Vectrex emulator. As stated, it was reeeeally slow.
However, now another Vectrex emulator for the GP32 is being made, just
tried the first alpha/beta version and the speed is as good as on the
real thing. No sound yet (which will potentially slow it down) and no
game loading (so it's only MineStorm so far). Keeping my fingers
crossed for a truely portable Vectrex finally :)

PS. The file can be downloaded from the GP32x.com message boards, if
you are a registered member.

I'll keep you guys posted.

Sounds good! Another reason to buy a GamePark32.

I saw a mob in the UK selling special genuinely overclockable 166/180Mhz
GP32. More than enough for many emulations. If it wasn't for the DS,
PSP, etc the GP32 would be the way to go.

Hi,

It's a great little handheld indeed.

There's a company calling themselves "GBAX.com" advertising them for sale in
"Retro Gamer", along with various classic systems and hacking/development
tools for classic systems.

The website is at "www.gbax.com", I haven't checked it out myself yet
though.
