Is it possible that we can stop with this exclusive use of SD Cards?
If you guys are smart enough to get this far then there would be no reason why you couldn't have some built in flash ram that emulates a disk/hard or whatever drive on the ADAMnet that you can access with a long USB cable connected to your PC
Put it this way, if you were looking for "investors" and came to me, then I would emphasize that request.
BTW, I am retired and have some beer money if you need investors but we would have to discuss that on more private channels.
I believe in the project because the Coleco ADAM has a special place in my heart and despite being able to do everything here on an emulator and save the desk space I think this has a place in history as being the true evolution of ADAM if Coleco continued the series.
What I would do is use it as a development kit.
If I had to request that you have a development version with an Assembly language programing manual. Maybe even update the EOS and make EOS 8? 9? that is backward compatible but has functions for the SGM and any banked memory, drives???
Why can't this be the next gen ADAM?
Fully backwards compatible, updated OS, updated graphics and sound, GUI? The ability to increase the CPU speed for more complicated games and learning software. With a proper IDE to make brand new software that is not ports from MSX.
And if you can't sell it as a Coleco product with a LOGO then make it a brand new nostalgia product with Coleco compatibility.
If you want to release this and then work on a separate product with my ideas then we could chit chat about that as well.
Someone with insider info PM me so we can talk. I am 100% on the level with this.
