I have had my ColecoVision set up for a long time. I have the Ultimate SD cart. This past weekend, I was able to get a decent entertainment stand and organize my home systems.
This gave me room for my Adam, which is now taking the place of my ColecoVision.
There is SO much information scattered about the Adam. I think I get a lot of it, but I still have a couple questions.
I am assuming that my Ultimate SD cart has no way to emulate and Adam .dsk image, so I would need another way to play the actual Super Donkey Kong on actual hardware. (Correct??)
I do not have any digital data packs currently, so I do not even know if the unit works. I ordered a copy of Buck Rogers from eBay to check it out. Who knows if I will get a working cassette!!??!
So, the device in this thread would be the best solution for Adam Super Games?
Am I right to assume that Super games, for the modern SGM, will not work without that unit, even though the Adam has plenty of RAM?? (Even though it would be lacking the extra sound chip support)
I have come across this weird issue:
Somewhere along the line, I got a copy of Eduardo's Super DK intro. It will not play in my ColecoVision with the Ultimate SD. However, it works fine when I try it in Adam, with the Ultimate SD.
On the flip side of the coin, there is a hack of the original DK, where intros and an unfinished Conveyor Belt screen was added. This plays fine in my ColecoVision, but it locks up after I clear the first level on the Adam.
I wonder if that is because it recognizes there is a data drive available? Anybody know why this is? I use my Ultimate SD.
- Is it correct that the Ultimate SD cart cannot emulate any functionality for an Adam .dsk or .ddp image?
- Will the Adam VDD, in this post, work with .dsk AND .ddp images? If not, are they easily converted?
- Will some newer "Super Games" play in the Adam without the SGM, if they do not take advantage of the extra sound?
- Anybody understand why the ColecoVIsion "Super Donkey Kong" hack freezes after level clear, but it works on a standard CV with Ultimate SD cart?
