VecX/GL – a port of the Vectrex emulator “vecx”, by Valavan Manohararajah, created by James Higgs.

The Vectrex is a vector display-based home video game console–the only one ever designed and released for the home market, developed by Smith Engineering.

This version uses OpenGL to render the vectors, and SDL to handle the keyboard/controller input, and the audio streaming.

Portions of the source code of are copyright James Higgs 2005/2007.
These portions are:
1. Ay38910 PSG (audio) emulation wave-buffering code.
2. Drawing of vectors using OpenGL.

Comand-line parsing code gratefully borrowed from vecxsdl (Thomas Mathys). Key mapping and command-line options were also changed to be compatible with Thomas Mathys’ vecxsdl.

This version only supports overlays which are in 24 or 32 bit compressed or uncompressed TGA format. The overlay is converted to a 512×512 texture internally.
