I have several ZX Spectrums 48K and two Sinclair QLs. I also collect vintage Slovenian (Yugoslav) computers. I write software for them. I know about Vectrex, because I was evaluating the possibility to emulate it on an old Slovenian CP/M machine called Iskra Delta Partner. This machine has a vintage graphical chip that can draw vectors fairly fast so I was hoping to utilize it. However, besides 1K of Vectrex RAM you also need to emulate the 8KB of ROM and the 32 KB of cartridge ROM. And that together is 41Kb. Add the emulator and memory for remembering emulated vectors and ... I'm still thinking about it. But I realistically only have 112KB of RAM available, if I ditch CP/M and take control of the whole banked system.

Anyone here writing software for retro 8-bit machines?
