  1. Thank you for mentioning this! The sprites attached above need to be converted to fit the VDP, but I don't know which program I should use. I initially posted this to show that I am a pixel artist, and I am excited and very enthuiastic about contributing to projects. I don't care about being paid, etc. Knowing that my work is in a Coleco game is worth more to me than any amount of money.
  2. I appreciate the feedback. I was hoping someone would suggest the right program for the job. I've read quite a few threads on here about sprites, and people have suggested different programs. I'm not sure where to begin. Edit: I'd appreciate any guidance you can offer.
  3. I love the Colecovision; it's my all-time favorite console. When I first discovered AA, I was overwhelmed by the amount of resources available to program the console. I'd like to someday start my own projects, but in the meantime - I would like to offer my services to anyone that might need a pixel artist for a current or upcoming Coleco project. The sprite sheets I have attached here are just quick examples of some of my work, The tools I use: Grafx2 (Mac), ProMotion (PC), Sprite Creator (iOS) and Sprite Editor (iOS). Note: the sprite sheets seen here were developed using Sprite Creator in 16x16 and 32x32.
  4. This thread has me glued to the screen. It's like a daytime soap opera with Cardillio as the villian. What will happen next? Will Cardillo back off (which he should) or will he try to fight this until the bitter end? BTW: Their Rainbow Brite game is a joke! It looks like a cookie-cutter NES game.
  5. Thank you for posting the source code! It'll help people like me who want to program on the Coleco.
  6. And here I was hoping they would get burned at their own game. Edited: Pun intended.
  7. Maybe Hallmark slapped them with a cease and desist for violating their copyright?
  8. And that is the sad truth of it all. They ride the coat tails of others to generate a profit.
  9. A Rainbow Brite game you say? Maybe they were hoping someone from the homebrew community would develop the game for the Colecovision? All evidence seems to point to them reviving the Coleco in some way. Gaining control of the community was probably the first of many steps planned.
  10. True. The real people behind the Coleco never would have pulled such a nasty stunt. Edited for spelling.
  11. Wow! Looks like I'll be buying this and Prometheus!
  12. I'm taking a sledgehammer to my Coleco the same day my Prometheus console arrives...
  13. Personaly, I'd like to see arcade ports from as early as 1980 to as late as 1989: Kung Fu Master, Q-Bert Cubes, Krull, Bad Dudes, R-Type, Salamander, TMNT, etc.
  14. This is great news! I'm really looking forward to buying Gradius.
  15. Thank you for the update! I can't wait to get my hands on Pac-Man DX and Donkey Kong. Quick question: will there be a second run of Gradius? I was lucky enough to buy Penguin Adventure before the AA store sold out, but I missed out on Gradius. I really want a copy for my collection! Edited for spelling.
  16. Oh yeah? I just purchased Thexder and Operation Wolf from Team Pixelboy today! So choke on it, Mr. Cardillo! You'll never see a red cent from me!
  17. Keep at it! The Jaguar needs more programmers.
  18. Is 7800basic more complicated than Batari Basic? I have a decent understanding of BB, and I have written a couple of simple games with it. I wasn't sure if what I've learned so far with BB could be carried over to 7800basic or not.
  19. Hi Daniel, It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance. First, I am really sorry about your mother. Losing a loved one is never easy, but to cancer? I can't even imagine... I've been unemployeed, supported by family. and buried in a mountain of debt all at the same time, so I can definitely sympathize with your current situation. While I am not fimiliar with you personally, I have read about your games on FB groups and websites. In fact, I believe I might have subscribed to your Youtube channel a very long time ago, while searching for Coleco dev/homebrew videos. The channel was called newcoleco, I believe. I hope you stick around and become an active member of the community again. And if you ever decide to finish and publiish those unfinished projects (which I assume are games), you can count on me to place an order. Edited for spelling.
  20. Hello! Please put me down for (1) NTSC copy! I
  21. You definitely have my support! Just a quick question: will Opcode Games implement the SGM Pro concept into the new console or the SGM?
  22. It might be too early to say this, but put me down for the new 8-bit console system! Pinch me; I think I'm dreaming.
