VecFever setup

Managed to actually play with the VecFever this weekend. Gotta say it’s an impressive piece of kit, drag and drop binary copying if that’s your bag.

But this really comes into it’s own in developer mode, live linked to the PC and VIDE development environment. After Assembly VIDE pumps the binary over to a special ram disk folder on the VecFever and the VecFever detects this and loads the binary into ROM space ready for execution. This is a real help with development, it removes the other routes which involve burning roms or copying roms to sd cards.

This will help with my iteration times and allow me to basically live test on the Vectrex and see real results without worrying about emulation differences.

Thanks to Thomas and Malban my development just got that little bit more productive.
