Like how we have atariprotos.com? If there is a colecovision site like that I would be interested in seeing it and reading up on those kinds of items

I'd like to see something like that too. And maybe something for the Intellivision.

I found one website a while back that is pretty good. (better then nothing anyways) I think it has 18 of the 20 known protos covered there. It shows screenshots, a little bit of info for only a few of them, and has the rom file for 17 of them.

What it's missing or lacking is the detailed text descriptions and write ups that we all know and love about atariprotos.com :)

However, a big part of that is because the history of the vast majority of the protos found for the Coleco Vision predates the "website based" collecting community Internet system. I'm talking the old rec.games newsgroups era of the mid to late 1990's. Sean Kelly would be the top resource and best chance of compiling that information and documenting that provenance.

Back then when I first got copies of those protos from him, I only cared about being able to get them so I could see and play them. I wasn't curious about who found them and/or where they came from. Now it matters more to me.

I think The Fall Guy is the only dead link out of those 18. But I have that one and the others they're missing like Steamroller. There's not very many more really.

Tempest & I should put this all together on a website. Get all the history and details from Sean of when & where each one was found, etc. What do you say Matt?

Sorry I have enough trouble finding the time to keep my own site up to date.

I completely understand.

But Coleco Vision fans deserve it!

Luckily, I had some free time during this long Thanksgiving weekend!

It's not my best work, and I hope to improve it over time, but it's better then nothing.

Enjoy!

How complete is Lord of Dungeon? Is it payable as a ROM, or does it require the battery back-up hardware to function?

 

Note that Tunnels and Trolls is "playable" online: https://archive.org/...emo_1983_Coleco

Not sure exactly how complete Lord Of The Dungeon is but it must be close since it has been released on cart in 2 versions/publishers.. 

 

 CGE 2000, released by Sean Kelly/DigitalPress

..and the other was re-released in 2011 by Collectorvision
