I finally got the mod installed. At first I was getting a solid yellow screen. I doubled check all my connections and found nothing connected wrong. I still did not work so I did a continuity check and thought I may have a short on the 5 volt line to ground. So I moved the 5 volt line to another spot on the board and tried again with no luck.
I pulled the wires from the S-video and re-soldered everything and it still did not work. I figured I fried the board. One last ditch effort I removed the TIA chip and re inserted it and it Worked!!!!
Thanks for the tips and the screen shots. Crossbow your FB page also helped.
“The Coleco Chameleon is still alive and well by debuting the fully functional Coleco Chameleon Dev Kit at the annual Midwest Gaming Classic for the reasonable price of $12,000 US Dollars. Be the first (and only) one to develop new cartridge based games for the system. The kit includes a clear cased Chameleon complete with a fully functional DVR board, two Super Chameleon Controllers, the new Chameleon Remote control used to simulate the famous rest bug found at the Toy Fair in NY, and last but not least a fully operation Chameleon 30 inch LCD monitor. Hurry now before this one and ONLY dev kit is sold.
The owners of the Chameleon say the cost should be enough to cover the price of the molds used to make the clear cases.”
In all seriousness I did come across this mockup at the Midwest Gaming Classic. And at first I said, No way is this for real, are they really trying to sell a dev kit at the show. Then I saw the price and the words parody. Then I talked with the guy who put this all up and he said it was all for fun. I don’t post much but I could not resist.
I am working on a project that I hope will pan out soon. One of the topic is collecting the 9 launch titles. I am looking for anyone here who ever bought one of the original nine back in 77 or if anyone has completed that collection and the story of how you acquired them
It would be great if you would PM me so I can elaborate what this project is about and hopefully some good stories for collection the launch titles....which will be shared in the near future....
Feel free to give stories here to share with Atariage! Looking forward to hearing some of your stories....
This has to be one of the best looking boxed copies of Tower of Doom I have ever seen. I picked this up in a local Game Exchange for 65 dollars. I know this goes for about that price on EBay but none of them have ever seem as in good shape as this one.
Being in disbelief I had to do a search to see if there were ever any reproductions made of this and I was never able to find one. It seems legit but its hard to believe. Here are some of the pictures and a link to more photos.
I was in a local used game store called "The Exchange" and found a slew of retro comuters and systems. I was shocked to see this boxed copy of an Adam there going for $650.00. I am not very familar with the Adam collector market so I am not sure if this is a good deal or not. If someone is in North East Ohio and may want to check this out I figured I would post this.
