  1. Here is the original post where PacManPlus was able to mend this problem. In the thread, there are some great hi-res photos of -^CrossBow^-'s work, as well as the references of part numbers used.
  2. @playsoft Thank you for converting this game and for making it freely available. I had never heard of it! I am playing it on my 5200 now, and it is totally awesome. I am super impressed with the POKEY music and excellent game mechanics. This is the kind of game that should have been marketed in the 5200’s (brief) heyday. Loving it. Fans, if you have an Atarimax cart, give it a spin!
  3. I hope things change, and that you are on a waiting list for a donor. Your dedication to all things Atariland is inspiring, and your technical abilities are truly that of a wizard. Plus, you live in a very special place. Get well soon.
  4. I just played this on my CC2 using the 7800_48K banking file with perfect harmony! This is an excellent start to what I foresee as a stellar Atari 7800 port of Popeye! I’m really impressed with the graphics and arcade likeness. Thank you @darryl1970 for crafting this excellent beta!
  5. There is a need for this in our community. I would design one if I had such skills and equipment. I second this!
  6. Nice barn find! That looks like an early 1983 El Paso unit, manufactured in January of that year.
  7. I also met Curt that year at CGE. He showed me the XM proto that he brought and we had a nice conversation. I’d been quietly waiting to see more, and I’m so very sorry to hear about his passing. Very shocked. My condolences.
  8. Seriously cool. Treasure Hunt looks like it would have been an attractive early release for the ColecoVision, right up there with Smurf Rescue and Cosmic Avenger. I'm looking forward to discovering the fun in these hidden gems!
  9. Seconded. I would love to automate diagnosis on my stack of ColecoVision machines. There truly are many fragile components on this aging hardware.
  10. I just dug up this thread, which I found inspiring. I am curious to find out how the Pencil II games play, and I think it would be neat to see them running on a ColecoVision. I did a quick search, but I'm not sure the ROMs have been made publicly available. Has anyone considered releasing and/or converting these for The Fun of Discovery?
  11. Staleness bump. I had forgotten about the Pencil II until this thread was recently started. Thanks @viande @cdoty and @coleconut for your contributions. Le Plongeur looks pretty cool, and I would love to see it dumped or made available for purchase. Have the rest of the ROMs been dumped yet? Have any coding experts from our resident homebrewers such as @Pixelboy considered converting these rarities? Mods, would it be acceptable to move this thread into the ColecoVision forum?
  12. Thankfully, this is no longer the case! New CC2 files were released by @Mitch earlier this year. This has changed everything for the ol' CC2! What an awesome feat of gaming excitement this is! I was able to get this to load with no hesitation on my CC2 and play this on real Atari 7800 hardware by using the following menu entries: 7800: EXO EXO210 7256R16 78BIOS Use tabs for the MENU.TXT file and spaces for the MENU.CC2 file. New banking schemes for the Cuttle Cart 2 are located here. As always, don't forget to remove the first 128 bytes of any .A78 file to convert it to a .BIN file.
  13. This is an incredible game, and thank you for sharing! I will be following development on this. I was able to get this to load on my CC2 and play this on real Atari 7800 hardware by making the following menu entries: 7800: Knight Guy KNIGHTGY7144P 78BIOS Use tabs for the MENU.TXT file and spaces for the MENU.CC2 file. New banking schemes for the Cuttle Cart 2 are located here. As always, don't forget to remove the first 128 bytes of any .A78 file to convert it to a .BIN file.
  14. Awesome start to what will no doubt be an awesome game! I was able to get this to load on my CC2 and play this on real Atari 7800 hardware by making the following menu entries: 7800: Into The Void ITVB5 7048 78BIOS Use tabs for the MENU.TXT file and spaces for the MENU.CC2 file. New banking schemes for the Cuttle Cart 2 here. Lastly, don't forget to remove the first 128 bytes of any .A78 file to convert it to a .BIN file.
  15. Very cool! I had no idea Sydney’s HQ was here in San Diego. That’s two 1980s game developers with SD headquarters (the other being Steven Stack of Red Sea Crossing [Atari]). Interestingly, each developer had at least one unpublished game. I only wish there were some remnants of their facilities or the stock, but sadly these are just spaces occupied by different tenants now. Edit: I see that it was Dataproducts, Inc. as the [presumed] developer. Still cool!
