    I posted this before, but go here:

     

    You need to go to the CoCoList. A member there named Gustavo Ranuar Schoenaker converted/renamed the games from the www.colorcomputerarchive.com/coco/Disks/Games/ to CoCoSDC compatible on 2/22/2015. It is a must-have for the CoCoSDC, works great.

     

    The names of the games are redone and ready for the CoCoSDC. Combine these with Ianoid's cheatsheet and you are ready for some CoCo!

     

    See here:

    Thanks RangerG! Does anyone have a copy of the "control spreadsheet" linked on that download page? It's a dead link there now.


  2. My Secret Santa is pretty awesome!!!!! Check it out:

    I already started on the jelly beans and they are de-lish! The shirt is great and I love the retro "ringed" sleeves. FYI, the Pez are all new to my collection; I had a few of the characters but all these are new designs. I love tin toys and robots, so the ornament is perfect. And what can I say about the games?!?! Just great to fill some spots in my collection, but especially stoked to play some Food Fight and I have never played Adventures of Tron.  Great job Santa, I can tell you did your research!!!

     

    Thanks so much to ChicGamer and Capt Breakout for making this happen!!!

    Well, I held out until Christmas morning.  All I can say is WOW!  My Secret Santa really seemed to know me (and must have done some reading up on my other posts as well).  Thank you very much for such awesome and thoughtful gifts.

     

    All the presents were wrapped in cool paper that said OH all over it.  I thought maybe my SS was from Ohio, but then I looked at the address label and it said Washington state, so that couldn't be it.  Anyway, great wrapping!

    Unwrapping the red ball produced tons of candy, some cool arcade tokens, and an Atari Age painted rock!  I wonder what all those letters and numbers are on the back of it?🤔

    Holy Moley!  These are some super cool gifts!  I got a CIB General Chaos for the Genesis, Xybots for the Lynx (the last game I needed for a complete, original set), and an I lost on Jeopardy 45!  This is some awesome stuff!  

     

     

     

    Just make sure you put that pretty rock in your pocket the next time you go to the AtariAge Store. And seriously??? that was the last Lynx game you needed? That's wild! I so happy you enjoyed the stuff!! I should have my pictures up shortly....spoiler, it's awesome!!

    I finally got my video uploaded. Sorry about the sound issues (I should know better than to use my camcorder's built-in mic).

     

    Merry Christmas, AtariAge!

     

     

    Awesome! Sound quality was just fine for the purpose. Thanks for posting!!

    Ahh, so it was YOU!  My wifey said it came this morning.  I don't open gifts until at least Christmas Eve, so everyone will just have to be on their toes until then!  My recipients gift is also out for delivery today as well.  The postal service is on top of things this year for sure.

    Uhhh,....I didn't say it was delivered today.....you must be thinking of another Santa..........ok, fine. I guess I'm still not very good at secrets.

  6. How about a round of applause for USPS because all my packages are flying to their destinations super fast this season. My SS package made it cross country in 2 1/2 days. Not sure what other peoples experiences have been. I think the quality of the local PO staff has a lot to do with my experience.

    Oy. Yet another reason to hate getting old.

     

    So, is everyone waiting until Christmas to open gifts? I want to see some gift opening pics, dammit! 😛 

    It's tough, because it's a big old tempting package, but I am doing my best to wait until Christmas. As a kid I ruined all my Christmas surprises...gonna send Ferg an audio submission for his Christmas episode telling all about it.

  8. Thanks Chicgamer! Excited to get started. I got some great gift clues for my recipient and what systems they are collecting for, but it is kinda hard to guess what games would work. I have just used a shotgun approach in the past, hoping they would get a few new ones. To help my santa out I attached my checklists for 2600, 7800 and TI stuff to the About Me tab of my profile. I will try to drop my 5200 list on there tonight. Plus this will help me find my checklists in the future when I come across games out and about. I already have some cool stuff picked out for my recipient.

     

    Edit: FYI the 2600 "hot list" isn't a check list, just a list of lower rarity games I don't have as targets when I am game hunting; much easier than an unwieldy 15 page checklist.

    Just bought Klax. I saw it on eBay and wondered how it's possible given the game uses lots of color.

    I'm a big Klax fan and the Gameboy version is just about my favorite. They used different patterns for the tiles rather than colors. It's weird, but I think my brain can pick up and process the patterns easier than the colors. It will be interesting to see what you think of it.

    Thanks so much to frankodragon, who was revealed to be my Secret Santa!!! I appreciate you you jumping in at the last minute so I could participate!!!

    I appreciate the message in the card and also Crazy Tank, which is my first 7800 home brew, which I will be playing tonight!!

    Santa knew that I loved B movies, and found a fantastic compilation of Sci-fi B movies. Most of the stuff I have is horror or fantasy, so all but 4-5 of the 50 included movies are new ones to me and will be playing as I game throughout the rest of my vacation.

    Lastly, an awesome selection of gummy candy! All were great choices, but it's the first time I had the Sunny D ones and they are the bomb!

     

    Thanks so much for your thoughtfulness, I will be getting a ton of entertainment our of your gift!!!!!

    No CMart, sorry, not of Rev. I’m still traumatized after the first ones you showed me. 

    Hmmmm. I just did a search on AtariAge for posts that had both the words "Rev" and "traumatized" and was absolutely shocked to find out that this was the only instance. I would think these two words would be linked together in the local vernacular like pork and beans.
