  1. 2coolspirit.. Surprise, surprise. 🙄👎
  2. Alright, I'm on board for a 2nd one now. Thanks to CollectorVision for doing a 2nd run! I too PRAY you guys do an Intellivision core eventually. That would be amazing! Of course, any other cores would be a welcome addition as well.
  3. What a totally bogus, BS, clickbaity article. Hopefully the writer amends some of statements he made.. we all know Cardillo is a complete jackass, who doesn't really care about the community, and is only out to make a quick buck. River West Brands/"Coleco" isnt the OG Coleco we all knew & loved, that's for sure, so this is not a 'comeback' by any stretch of the imagination. They've already tried to come down on the homebrew community, so surely the CV fans out there already know the deal and are hopefully smart enough to not buy a rebranded, upcharged Phoenix. I wish RWB would just sell off the Coleco trademark already because all they're doing is tarnishing the name, more & more every year it seems.. They've already done more damage in the past 5 or so years than I care to remember. The only good thing that I can see to come from this is that CollectorVision sold some more units and maybe some consoles will be available to folks that missed out on pre-ordering straight from CollectorVision.
  4. You know, I think I just may order myself a 2nd one, this time in an ADAM colored case. However, I don't want or need the pack-in game (I already have a copy from the 1st Phoenix I bought).. Is there any way to buy the console only, without the cart, loose or otherwise? Thanks!
  5. Yikes.. I'm going to have to look and see if there's a tracking number for my copy. 😬
  6. ..a Intellivision II controller I hope. 😉😂
  7. Dude... You just don't get it. That's fine, whatever.. I'm over it, but don't go making assumptions and putting words in my mouth. There's been enough drama here already and this conversation is obviously going nowhere, so we'll just have to agree to disagree on this one. That's all I'm going to say - Have a great day.
  8. I don't know why a lot of people dog on the MSX ports.. They're totally revamped games, all around. The controls, graphics and sound are all improved, plus they're translated! Sure, I could play the originals, in an emulator (I don't own an MSX and doubt I ever will), but it's not particularly fun, trying to figure out what something in Japanese says, whilst in the middle of gameplay, all while fighting with some atrocious controls at the same time. They're games that people probably wouldn't have ever known about (like myself). So I'm glad to play some of these 'undiscovered gems' for the first time on a ColecoVision, because I admit, I wasn't hip to the MSX at all, before stumbling back into the CV scene a few years back.. So I've got to give it up for the publishers here, for making these great games more readily available and a great game is a great game, no matter the platform it originated on.
  9. Like I already said, It's discouraged because it's Not a good move and is probably not going to end well for him, if he plans to stick around on AA. I don't think Al and Rob will put up with it.. I've seen people get banned here for far less. Though what he's trying to do is wrong, I hate to see him get the ban hammer when he seems to be a fairly clever fellow, who could possibly benefit the community, using his talents in some other meaningful, more useful way, like making hardware we actually need... Not another SGM, and a clone at that. Why would he even waste his time cloning the SGM, at "cost", in an already saturated market anyway? It just seems silly and doesn't make much sense at all, especially considering the SGM is already a very affordable, high quality product. $90 is not really that expensive, at all! Furthermore, OpCode's 5th run is literally right around the corner.. Trying to sell clones/bootlegs right now is just a total dick move and obviously doesn't sit well with the majority of the community, judging by the comments made thus far. If he made something like that for himself and maybe a couple buddies, that might be one thing, but that's obviously not his intent, unfortunately. He should've just stayed anonymous, but even, it probably wouldn't turn out well for him. The CV community already had to deal with Juice's JuiceBox/Say Game Module fiasco a few years back and it really left a bad taste in everybody's mouth. He was selling bootleg games on eBay and SGMs here (which, BTW, turned out to be a giant POS), so this whole thing reminds me of that and I know I'm not the only one. I just can't get behind something like that. It's about respect and Ed has worked hard to get the SGM out there, to make it the fine product it is today, which was not cheap or easy. An act like that isn't very "spirited" at all and just seems to be more of out spite than anything. He's not doing it for the "community", that's for sure. If Mr Pix wants to clone something, clone Juice's Intellivision RGB board and improve it, because it's currently incompatible with the OSSC, plus they're not made anymore. A lot of Inty fans never got the chance to get one. Or, make a different Coleco RGB mod or even an all new, HDMI solution. A new ColecoVision motherboard would be another welcome addition, spinner controller (that's different than evg2000's), etc. Basically, anything other than the SGM. 🤷🏻‍♂️
  10. I'd especially would love to have a full UK Vectrex set at some point. Bandai games would be cool to collect as well, but that's big money. As far as the US set, I don't think I'd count Mr. Boston though. Never heard of the Beagle Bros doing anything Vectrex wise though.. I thought they were Apple ][ related. 🤔
  11. Bad move, Mr Pix. 👎 It's Ed's thing.. PLEASE don't start drama here. We've been through this clone shit already with someone else, so if you plan to stick around here on AA, I'd reconsider all of this if I were you. There's little tolerance for bootlegging Coleco stuff around here, so, Please, I ask you again, reconsider and leave it be. Opcodes SGM is a high quality product and is priced very fair, so there's really no need for all this, especially with involving lawyer's and all that nonsense. If you're going to concentrate on anything, just stick with the Intellivision RGB boards that you mentioned over in the Inty section or something else hardware related... ANYTHING would be better than another SGM clone! My .02 🤷🏻‍♂️
  12. I'm interested in 1 myself..please add me to the list if you make another batch. Very cool! Wish I would've seen this earlier. 😎
  13. No kidding.. Hmm, I didn't even know there was a "digital version". 🤔 Too bad a rom version would sell out though, that's kind of odd.. I figured something like that would be kept open/unlimited to generate as much revenue as possible. Oh well, thank goodness for the Atarimax Maxflash USB Programmer. I can't remember if you gave the Rom out a while back or not, I'll have to check the thread and my hard drive. Anyways, I forgot all about the game exchange thing, but I probably should send the cart in to get the newest revision. I'll Pm you. Thanks!
