Let's draw with Vectrex!

A pentagram as seen in the patch.

The same pentagram as seen on Vectrex hardware.

A few days ago, i began working on a Max/MSP patch that lets one draw vector-based images. The images are output as text files containing relative co-ordinate pairs in such a way that they can be easily incorporated into Vectrex assembly code.

That's very clever.

Well, it's not that good yet. The output needs to be massaged and then compiled. But it works in a way. At least it is easier than trying to calculate relative vector co-ords in your head ¬_¬
