2017 is almost over, so this is a good time to see what is still pending and what lies ahead.

 

Most of the second half of 2017 was spent preparing for Grazi's move to the US. So we don't have any further games planned this year, although we will announce plans for 2018 soon.

 

Super Game Module 4th run

- what we have got so far: boxes, manuals, plastic cases, sound chips

- what we still don't have: Connectors and PCBs. Well, actually we should have the connectors tomorrow, assuming Fedex keep their promise. Long story short, the connectors are 2 months late, mainly due to a couple of mistakes on the manufacturer's part (they shipped to the US instead of China, then they shipped to the wrong address in the US). Once I receive the connectors, I will ship them back to the factory in China so they can start manufacturing the PCBs

ETA: Late December/January (please keep an eye on the AtariAge store SGM page for status updates)

 

SGM 1st/2nd/3rd run: we still have a few pending orders for those runs. Some pre-orders never replied to our address confirmation requests, some did but are waiting, since we got out of modules due to manufacturing issues with the 3rd run. All pending orders will be shipped when we receive the 4th run, as we have enough spares this time

 

SGM 2nd nameplate replacements: some people in the 2nd run received their SGMs with paper nameplates. We have been contacting and shipping replacement nameplates for those. In case you have a paper nameplate and didn't get an email from Grazi, or haven't confirmed your address yet, please contact us: info [at] opcodegames [dot] com

 

Boggy 84/Cabbage Patch Kids or any other prototype or limited edition games: now shipping 

 

Penguin Adventure: Still investigating. Hope to have a fix before the end of the year

 

Buyers of Juno First/Sparkie/Crazy Train prototypes: replacement protos next year

 

 

And what about plans for 2018? Mostly get the lineup we had planned for 2017 out in the first half of 2018. But will discuss the details down the road.

I got your e-mail about the replacement nameplate on November 9th, replied promptly the same day with my address, then I got this automated reply:

"Thank you for contacting Opcode Games. We will provide an answer to your question or request within 2 business days."

Nothing since then.

Please, what is/was the nature of the manufacturing issue with the 3rd run SGM?  Mine has been repaired by Opcode since I acquired it on eBay so mine now works fine but I'm just curious as to any other defect.   

 

Can current owners of said prototypes get in touch regarding this?  As mentioned before some of these may have changed hands and some current owners may not be the original ones. 

 

Regarding Boggy 84, my label arrived somewhat damaged; would it be possible to get a replacement label for my cart?

We are in process of shipping nameplates. If you provide your address, you should be good.

Next year.

A lot of sound chips arrived DOA in the 3rd run. Since we didn't use a socket in that run (not a good idea in retrospect), we didn't have enough modules to fulfill all orders. All modules were tested before shipping though.

 

How did the label get damaged inside the plastic box? Please contact Grazi and let her know.

I provided my address on November 9th, as instructed. Did you keep that e-mail after you received it?

I’m not exactly sure what caused it and by all means I can happily live with the imperfection.  I only ask thinking supplies, templete, etc. may still be in place.  I’ll follow up with Grazi via email with detailed decription.  More importantly thank you for the games which are both awesome.

My copy of Penguin Adventure unfortunately encounters the same reset glitch.  As far as I know my ColecoVision is not modded in any way other than having my 3rd run SGM inserted.  I do have a working secondary "back-up" ColecoVision that I will try to test cart on to see if same thing happens.  I can provide my console(s) serial number(s) if that helps pinpoint which consoles are suspect.

Any further details/information on Project Prometheus?  Or has that project been shelved?  Just wondering.  Keep up the good work.

Just to let people know (and I'm NOT 100% sure) but I believe that Ed's wife (Grazi) just got to the states last weekend.  

 

So I'm sure they are busy getting her settled in (and Ed is trying to convince her that the Boston weather now (cloudy / snowy / freezing) will 'soon' be like Brazil's (sunny / tropical / warm)  :-D  - yeah good luck with that!  (Grazi - what is this snow stuff and 5 feet deep!!!!)

 

Trust us Grazi it will get better!    Wait a guy is saying this... never mind.    ;)

 

Anyway Coleco stuff can waIt a few days...

 

Jeff
