  1. You BET, IF you get way up to Quebec City this summer, I WILL PERSONALLY GET YOU AN AWARD!!!!!
  2. J F, email sent to your gmail box. CAN"T WAIT, been counting the days since I saw the game playing at ADAMCON 22
  3. I would think the pins would make the controller MORE sensitive when the knob was pushed in that direction. Makes one wonder though.
  4. I have a whack of controllers. In testing them, some work flawlessly, some need just a cleaning, and others the keypad is not 100%. My question is to do with the latter. I use a joystick test utility on my ADAM to test these things. Looks like it is either a bad solder joint or one blown diode in the matrix as per another message link to a doc on the subject. I think I will try scavenging from another controller in worse shape to see if that helps. David, found this site while perusing the net and it shows the controller specs and diagrams. MAYBE this will help ya!! http://www.colecovision.dk/technical.htm
  5. Aw David !!!! SHAME !!! Appears you have a controller with slip on wires to the control board.. They are notoriously brittle and break easily. Take more controller apart in order to match it to this controller; this will probably show a couple of wires switched or just plain off. Get it working and either solder the wire onto the correct position or carefully crimp the end down a little, not much or it will break and you WILL have to solder the clip onto the trace. No this is a controller with soldered wires no clips. And if the red wire was not making a cicruit, then I would assume #, 4, 8, 5, and 9 which also use the red wire wouldnt work, but they do. The only glitch on the entire keypad is 0 returns 6. DUDE, that is a wierd one. Just possibly you must use that controller without using the 0 key. It has to be a miswire, jumper crossing over another trace, or just a minor elec glitch somewhere. As long as it works, you may just not be able to pause a game or two

  7. VERY VERY carefully using 2 hands, slide the cable into the slot. I have used a needle nose pliers to push in also.
  8. Just followed the link and didn't see (with a quick look) any ps that would work. Think (key word) that the ColecoVision takes inputs of +12, -1 and +5.
  9. BEST question is, did the worthless hack who sold it to you say it worked??? If the listing said it worked, Ebay and Paypal will reimburse your purchase including shipping and can send it back.
  10. I remember pre-ordering Mega Man V for Gameboy at Consumer's Distributing, and then waiting four months to get it. Wasn't really C-D's fault, the delay was Capcom's doing. After that sad episode, I promised myself I would never pre-order any video game ever again. And to this day, I haven't. I am with you Luc. Have "pre" ordered items, newsletters, hardware, etc that never panned out. Prefer to hit things when they are actually released.
  11. Yes,I think a joke,but in an interesting way. He probably saw some of the "autographed" Pitfalls and such,and figured why not? All it takes is one buyer,right? Sure hope he knows it is a joke. BUT, on Ebay, anyone can ask any price and just possible get some unknowing, uncaring "person" to buy something wierd.
  12. AWESOME Derek !!!! I LIKE it! Just played it and WON! :-)
  13. Grand Rapids, MI? Lowell, MI to be precise (just outside GR). Someone previous mentioned K-zoo, but I think they're were confusing me with someone else (Practical Programs?). JACK, you have to make an effort to come and see us this year at ADAMCON. LIke Jim told you, check out the info om my website. The hotel is on the southeast side of GR, REAL CLOSE!!!!
