  1. I really like what you have done so far! This is a game I am looking forward to buying when it is released.
  2. Here is a video on how to replace the power switch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QhCYc-pvYM In the video he uses a Radio Shack DPDT Rocker Switch part #275 691 Hope this helps you out.
  3. Ok I understand now. I had forgot that the CV had a bios built in which would make it different from the MSX. Makes sense, thanks for the information.
  4. I was curious if it would be possible to play MSX ROMS on the ColecoVision using the Atarimax Utimate SD cart and the Super Game Module? From what I can tell the SGM brings the specs of the CV up to the MSX, but the sound chip is different. Has anyone tried this? If so does it work, except for the sound, or are there other issues I have overlooked that make it non functional? Happy New Year to everyone!
  5. I don't know how this game is supposed to be played, but I prefer just getting the pearl then advancing to the next screen. Obviously there are going to be problems in the way to your goal, such as sharks, underwater, or what ever. That is for you to decide if you plan to create this game.
  6. You could really do alot with this. You could do snow scenes, desert, jungle, night, sunset etc. I always have enjoyed a game that used the different limited colors of the CV. When used right it is great to see what it can do. Just my two cents. If I can be of any help feel free to let me know.
  7. Yes. I like that idea. For example you play one game and then after the first screen, screen 26 is loaded, then the next time you play the next screen is screen 14, and so on. Like you said random. Great Idea.
  8. Looks really nice! Just curious how this game is supposed to play. If I recall from the description of Mr Turtle is that he is supposed to collect pearls from both land and water. To me that opens up a lot of wonderfull graphical opportunities that could be explored. Many different screens could be done with this game to add variety to the game and game play.
  9. I can understand your frustration but you have to realize that these things are done by individuals in their spare time. Sometimes stuff happens which can delay the process, so I would suggest waiting for a few nore days. Besides once you have the SD Cart you will have access to damn near every single game ever made, some of which were not released. The only other way to do that is by using an emulator, which I don't prefer, but it does have it's place. Just my 2 cents worth.
  10. A question if I may. I understand that there have been some issues with this game, so forgive me if I am not clear on everything. I have attempted to order Galaga twice through the web site and have only received a notice saying that I will be contacted at a later date. I have no problem with waiting I just wanted to check and see if this game is, or will still be, available in the future. Many Thanks for any info you can provide me with.
  11. The Atarimax SD cartridge is legit. Just so you know it is a standard coleco cartridge that has a cartridge slot of it's own that uses an SD card like you might have on your digital camera or smartphone. You can use the SD card to download roms from the internet then play them on a real ColecoVision.
  12. Unless you can find a cartridge version of Pac Man you are out of luck. But if you are willing to purchase an Atarimax Ultimate SD cartridge then you can load the Pac Man rom onto it and play it that way. You can also play almost every single game ever made if you have the roms. Plus the last version of the SD cartridge also included another great game, Mario Bros, as a pack in game with one other game included. I don't know if that is still the case today, but the SD cart is the way to go in any case, in my opinion.
  13. If your DVD recorder has a coax (cable tv) input you can buy an F-Connector to input the signal from the Colecovision directly into the DVD recorder and bypass the VCR. The F-Connector replaces the old small switch box that you had to use to switch between tv and game. You can get them at Radio Shack or similar type places for 3 or 4 dollars if I remember correctly. I hope this helps out.
  14. Well I don't know about that but my game has improved. I haven't made it passed the 9th key yet which involves another pattern. So far my high score is at 163,000+ points on the opcode game in the video. I just cut the rest off because I didn't think anyone wanted to see 20 minutes of me playing pacman. Thanks for the kind words, and for watching my video!
  15. Thanks for that info. And I have to say that we need a call to arms to make all arcade games that use a Z80 processor to be at least as good as this one is! OK maybe that might not be so good since some of them might not be so great. Anyone know a list of arcade games that use a Z80 that weren't released for the ColelcoVision?
