  1. You can also uses 2732 EPROMS but there is two pins that are not in the same place. The best is go here (https://www.petervis.com/electronics/TMS2532/TMS2532_2532_ROM.html) and read all the page, especially at the end to get both datasheets of the 2532 and the 2732. - Sly -
  2. I'm pretty sure he got the idea from the ITT Graetz-Ingelen Ideal Computer Tele Match Cassette 2 circuit diagram which shows how the AY-3-8600 (or 8610) is hooked-up with a CD4011 and then amplified by transistors and outputs to the RGB (with a scart connector). Also, the Magnavox Odyssey 4305 (the AY-3-8500-1 built-in the TV) is connected in this similar way accept that the ball is connected to the Red & Green giving the ball a yellow color. Same process was done in the early Pong-clones arcades like Nutting Associates Wimbledon. Heck...you could colorize an Magnavox Odyssey or any Pong clone console by the same procedure.
  3. Merci beaucoup! Et le manuel en Français n'a jamais été sauvegarder (à part maintenant)
  4. This banner was sold in 2016 on Ebay. I have kept the pictures that were posted on Ebay and put them here: https://odysim.blogspot.com/2016/06/odyssey-store-banner.html The more you describing the dealer kit, the more i wanna see it!
  5. Oh man! This is good stuffs and no one ever shown or talked about this (except you stupus!). This should be photographed, scanned and cataloged for archival purposes. Does the banner looks like this ?
  6. On that, i completely agree. We have the entire year (2021) to prepare and come up with all kind of events for the 50th anniversary of the Odyssey. After all, this is the "Holy Grail" (the Big Bang) of all video game consoles.
  7. Thanks! Dealer display kit ? Now i'm curious! Do you have picture(s) of the dealer display kit ?
  8. Hi folks, After some great homebrews for the Magnavox Odyssey that was released this year during the pandemic, i had an idea to make a poster for the Magnavox Odyssey since this console never had an official poster (just ads, flyers, etc), so i've made one which has all 28 "legacy" released games. You can download a copy here: http://odysim.blogspot.com/2020/12/merry-christmas-to-everyone.html as the picture above is very small compared to the real file (39 Megs - 14400 x 9600). Hope some of you will like it! P.S.: I call dibs on making the 50th anniversary poster for the Magnavox Odyssey (1972-2022) as i already started making one.
  9. Hi again folks! I have just posted the second part of the Bandai Terebikko which are the specifications and also talk about it successors. Link here: https://discreteconsoles.blogspot.com/2020/12/bandai-terebikko-part-2.html
  10. Hi folks! I have posted on one of my blogs about the バンダイてれびっこ (Bandai Terebikko) different two models and other information. You can view the post here: https://discreteconsoles.blogspot.com/2020/12/the-bandai-terebikko-video.html But mostly, after years of research i have made a list of all the VHS-tapes "games" that was released for the Terebikko. On Wikipedia, there is only 9 title listed and on Wikipedia Japan, it has 19 titles listed but in reality, there is 33 titles (+ one Sample Video tape) that was released for the Terebikko. The list is uploaded on Archive.org here: https://archive.org/download/bandai-terebikko/Bandai Terebikko List (dec-2020)(by Sly DC).xlsx and is also in attachment with this post (just in case). And you can also view/download some other files here: https://archive.org/details/bandai-terebikko The next post will be about the specifications of the Terebikko so hoping this will help out the emulation community and to preserve digitally the console and games, and also maybe see a homebrew for it ?! Have fun, folks! Bandai Terebikko List (dec-2020)(by Sly DC).xlsx
  11. Hi Ikrananka, No problem for comparing lists but it will take a while before i finished it. I think Amy (Daniel) won't mind if i ask her if i can distribute her old demos and games roms. As for Steve Bégin Wizard's Siege, i also have to ask him as i think he made a deal with CollectorVision. In the meantime since i'm cleaning up the roms, i finally found the web site of Ken Scott (aka Grimlick) when i've found his Black8pk.zip file. If anyone wants to download his hacks, here's the URL: http://grimlick.tripod.com/cvhack.htm There's 3 Colecovision hacks: CV Beast Wars (hack of Gorf - BWCVa.rom), Predacon Target Practice (hack of Carnival - BWCVb.rom) and the one i forgot: Star Wars: Episode 1 Racer (hack of Bump 'n Jump - racercv.rom).
  12. Thanks guys! But the only recent list i've found was last updated in 2015. But that's ok since i've found my Colecovision list i started last year, i thought i've lost it so now i just need to update it. There are a few games which i have found no mention of like Wizard's Siege by Steve Bégin, Kill Barney on Mars (not Tokyo) and the AdventureVision emulator by Daniel Bienvenu and a few demos made by Daniel like the CCJVQ demo and the Club 8bit demo, x2 hacks with Transformers pixels, etc... and i have the roms but i won't release them without the author's probation (except the two Transformers hack, they were available on his web site (Ken Scott) more than 10 years ago...can't find his web site now). Anyhow, before i update the list, i have to "clean-up" my Colecovision roms folder which will take a while. In the meantime, here's a rom i can release: It is a hack of Centipede called "Vectopede" which i made back in 2006. Hope some will like it, have fun! Vectopede (2006) (Sly DC).rom
  13. Hi folks, I was wondering how many games exactly were converted/ported from the Sega SG-1000, MSX, Sord M5, etc...to the Colecovision ? I was beginning to do a list of all Colecovision roms (games, prototypes, demos, etc) but i wanted to know exactly how many games were ported/converted to regular game cartridge or for the Super Game Module. Thanks in advanced to any inquiries!
  14. Hi Mikebloke! What's new with you since the Odyssey Multicarts ? I agree with what you wrote but also, Russia made their own "copy" of the AY-3-8500-1 (the К145ИК17) when the Pong era was almost non-existant in the rest of the world and General Instrument was dropping all of their TV Games series with all the competition (Bally, Fairchild, RCA, Atari, etc...) that was going by the end of the 70's - beginning of the 80's. Their first "Pong" console where based on the Magnavox Odyssey and also DIY TV Games by 1979-1980 in magazines. The first released Pong console was the Palestra-02 in 1978 and it was built with discrete components (TTL's) which are exactly the games found in the AY-3-8500-1 and more - see my post on my blog here: https://discreteconsoles.blogspot.com/2015/10/emulation-of-ay-3-8500-1-and-clones-soon.html And after, a few more Russian Pong consoles came out between 1978 and 1993 (the Typhup has a AY-3-8500-7 and all the rest has a K145HK17). But most people in Russia before the fall was majorly poor so not many of Pong consoles came out and not so many were sold also.
  15. What is the fun of revealing all the details, it is more fun to try to find the answer(s). I have read the book 4-5 years ago and i surely don't remember all the pages by memory (especially at my age....LOL!!!!). As for the book in Hong Kong, i will have to dig rrreeeaaalll dddeeeeeeppppp in my archives, somewhere between 10 to 15 years. That....may take a while to find the details but one thing i remember is i found out about this book by searching Google Books.
