I just wanted to let everyone know about our new FPGA Colecovision system that is capable of running multiple system cores on kickstarter right now. The system should be capable of supporting the new TI99/4a cores that are being worked on. This system is also being developed by a couple of the guys from these boards (Matthew180, speccery, and a couple others).

We appreciate any support you can give. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask.

 

Thanks,
Brian

We plan on Licensing HDMI for this project assuming the project gets funded, so we should be ok.

It is open source so it should be able to run this once it is ported:

Sorry I ain't reading all that.

 

Will it play TI-99/4A games off an SD card is all I want to know?

Yeah, if you're wondering why I haven't continued my work on the TI cartridge cases....this is why.

I played the prototype today at PRGE 2018.  This is the real deal.  Props to Matthew180 and Speccery for their part in this project.

They announced an Atari 2600 core in a backer email.  No word, yet, on the 99/4A core ;)

We do plan to have the TI99/4A on the system, as it was speccary who developed it ;) . I'm not sure at what point it will be released, but I know he has plans to port it to the Phoenix.
