  1. Hi. Someone told me that the Sega's Video Chip (VDP) is a non standard Version of the Yamaha V99x8 Video Chip...is this true and what differences are there between the two chips ? Is it possible to make your own homebrew Sega using say a V9958 ?? Thanks
  2. Hi. Any more details on Video Options?? Would/will there be: TMS9918 TMS9928 TMS9929 V99x8 ?? Thanks
  3. Does anyone know When's the Colecovision Replacement Motherboard 1.2 going to be available ? And Where do you get the video boards that plug in ?? Thanks
  4. I'm sure I've read somewhere that someone is design/making a NEW Powertran Cortex with a TMS99105 CPU ... or was I just dreaming it.
  5. The point I was trying to make is : Wouldn't it be great to have a NEW TMS9918 Chip (everything in on one piece of silicon) based on the F18A. I'm not knocking the F18A as it's very good but due to small production runs etc this limits it's use. I was wondering if anyone had even considered approaching a commercial company to see if they'd be willing to MASS produce an F18A type Chip, as I'm sure there must be a reasonable demand ? Well just a thought !
  6. Hi. Does anyone know if there's a Single Chip version of the F18A or something similar in development as a Drop in replacement to the TMS9918. The idea of a single chip with all logic RAM etc all on one chip is an interesting idea and must have some commercial possibilities/success if developed. The idea of a 'NEW' improved single chip TMS9918 wouldn't just appeal to old Retro computer Geeks but the masses of people using microcontroller needing/wanting a VDP to generate Text & Graphics.

  8. Probably easier just to Rob a Bank and probably more likely to be successful as 80% of Crowd funding fails !
  9. It'll be MESSy and Very Very Smelly !! You've been warned !
  10. "£$"$%£$^$%&%^*%&...... I Can't wait much longer for the replacement Colecovision motherboard. If it doesn't come out soon I'm going to POOP Myself !!
  11. Does anyone have an idea of when these Colecovision motherboards will be available to buy?
  12. Yes .. let the TI-99/4A last forever !! But seriously it does allow faulty ones to be repaired ..by popping in a new motherboard or if you have a TI-99/4A case you could insert a new motherboard. The Colecovision has had a 'NEW' motherboard designed/made , I believe it uses the F18A VDP and is still in the prototype stage.
  13. Sounds like a good idea, as I'd assume a GENEVE 9460 or a PEB with the necessary boards will be VERY expensive ? And as Old TI-99/4A start to die, then you could just pop an NEW improved motherboard in the case, so they last for ever !
  14. Perhaps we should encourage more people to design & Build Colecovision hardware !
  15. I spotted these kits on ebay.com.. that's if your into designing/.making hardware. http://stores.ebay.com/P-A-Electro-Components/DIY-Homebrew-Kits-/_i.html?_fsub=8692137013&_sid=1037341693&_trksid=p4634.c0.m322
