#4099894 Mario Bros different versions

Posted by ColecoDan on Mon Aug 27, 2018 1:24 AM

 

After checking my archive, my multicart and even asked Toby to check his own archive
It appear that we both don't have REV-B and REV-C 
Wich lead me to think they were never been made at all 

I'm really wondering why though.... :lol:

 

I think we just confirmed that J-F doesn't know his alphabet too well and thought it went A, D.

It's not their problem.  You bought a game cartridge that works on the original ColecoVision.  There's no way any homebrew author can accommodate variations in modded systems.  I run into this myself with Atari 2600 and 7800 games sold in the AtariAge Store.  Sometimes a mod, for whatever reason, causes an incompatibility problem with a specific game someone tries.  There's not really much I can do about that. 

 

And just because you have the ability to dump the cartridge and play it using a flash-based cartridge doesn't mean the publisher needs to support your ability to do so.  To state that the publisher is engaging in "very misleading sales practices", give me a break.  They sold you a game that works fine as sold and as intended--playing the cartridge you purchased on a stock ColecoVision system.  

 

 ..Al

 

I agree 100% unless the actual problem people are seeing is that the games security is keeping them from reaching level 2.  That isn't really a we can't make it work for every modded system.  That is more like we are paranoid that everyone is stealing and your game would have worked if we weren't so paranoid.

 

Now granted no one has come out and admitted to it being the security protocol, so if it truly is a bug do to the system and timing being different then I guess that sucks but from everything I read it would seem it is the security keeping it in demo mode.

Btw, despite the attention given to the final product, minor bugs can happen, i would be sad and apologize to learn that.


Not bug, it is an undocumented feature 😎

Mine was wet, thank god they at least put one of those plastic bags around the box.   I second the must ship in boxes in the future.

 

However more concerning to me is this idea that we must have an exact unmodded colecovision for a 35 year old system in which hardly anyone has a colecovison that was not modded.  Seems like poor planning.  I would say this needs a fix.  Unfortunately I have been too busy to play the game.  Will have to do that soon.




#4028264 Pac Man Collection on Colecovision

There are tons of copies out there so I would think only the yellow cart would be expensive since that was the first release.  The others hopefully wouldn't be too expensive.




#4025591 Jumpman Junior Super Game Prototype Cartridge?

Posted by ColecoDan on Fri May 11, 2018 11:27 AM

 

Except he's selling stolen and/or freely available games, where someone soldered an EPROM into a cheap overstock Activision board and shell, which is worth about $5 maximum, added a 5 cent label, and says they're potentially valuable and/or prototypes, and trying to sell them for $50 US.

It is called mail fraud which is a federal offense if he sent it in the USPS mail.   These days though nobody usually prosecutes unless it is some big player that they want to take down.

No Way, look at the other games he is selling.   Cosmo fighter 2, winky trap, kill barney.   If he is truly clueless then he bought these from someone that made their own carts from roms and he should be told that he should make sure to declare that these are not authentic and that they are re created from rom.  If he didn't buy these from someone else then he is outright lying to you and made them himself.

 

Daniel never gave his games out with just a white sticker on them and the stickers look similar to other games which are all done by different people.

half those stickers are not even in the sticker location and are at the top of the cart which no homebrewer would.  I have these homebrews they are all beautifully labeled.

Look at his common games he is selling that he calls rare, the parker brothers games are in coleco carts.  These are basically all fakes.  He either got screwed from a seller that made all these games or his is making them himself. Tomarc the barbarian is in a coleco cart.  Give me a break. All his auctions are crap.




#4023736 Adam to SGM nominations?

Posted by ColecoDan on Tue May 8, 2018 5:16 PM

I paid big bucks for the arcade cabinet adam games and not only do I not own an Adam, I have absolutely no intention to ever own one.   NIAD even tried to get me to get one when he had his extras around souped up with all the games and everything.   NOPE!

If you are really as cheap (deal oriented) as you sound, I doubt you are going to get one in a box because that is what makes it the most expensive.

I always played Conan: Hall of Volta on the Apple II.

I don't know though it might have only been hard and fun because you had to use the keyboard.  It might be too easy on coleco with a controller.

I think no matter how you program the 2016 campaign, there is no way it can be as crazy as real life.

No I got my answer, Stop buying Opcode protos because he is just going to release them later so it is basically just a total money grab and you get nothing special for helping him out with extra money for games.

juno first and crazy train were Opcode protos,    Are these different or are you selling the same thing basically.
