  1. If I were just getting into colecovision, i'd first pick up an Atarimax Ultimate SD: https://www.atarimax.com/colecosd/documentation/ The head over to cvaddict for publicly available stuff: https://cvaddict.com/list.php And then get in on Collectorvision's super game club, which will give you a CIB game (this year, it's TWO games) and access to their rom vault: https://collectorvision.com/shop/colecovision/collectorvision-experience-club-membership-2021/ (I believe you have until this sunday, 1/17 to get in on the 2021 club) I think everyone has steered you in the right direction for controllers.
  2. Same - I wonder if a bunch of them are and only us "informed delivery" folks even know. It was supposed to be delivered on the 31st, but it's in the state's main distribution hub since then and just says it's going to be late. Fingers crossed for Monday!
  3. Happy New Year, Pixelboy! Looks like, although you are passing the torch in your past releases, you have plenty to keep you busy! We are looking forward to all of it!
  4. Yes - it should work fine with .col, .rom or .bin
  5. If you search for pixelboy's Christmas posts, you will see he's released a lot of games in rom format. I would look into purchasing an Atarimax multicart to start. There are other time available here as well. This is a pretty decent list: https://cvaddict.com/list.php?filter=3 From there, focus on new titles for purchase or venture to ebay to pick them up second hand. Gooddealgames.com also has some for sale.
  6. Same. I got two for no apparent reason just because of my love for Lolo!
  7. Bought 7 games from nanochess and they made it through customs. Great communicator and he shipped within hours of payment!
  8. I bought two of them when they were initially available and have yet to use either one - and at this point I don't plan on it.
  9. I didn't mean to imply you were using the wrong gear...simply that there are too many variables with that setup. I don't know why they wouldn't have included the cable and adapter with it....one they could thoroughly test and garauntee works! I don't have the meanwell, but I have no doubt it's superior!
  10. All of that depends on what USB charger and cable you use with it. There are so many variables. I think when used as intended, with power supplies and cables within the same specs to which is was designed around, the ColUSB would work perfectly. With the meanwell, you're getting all of that right off the bat. You know the specs and you know they'll work!
  11. Sounds like he will have a marketplace thread coming this weekend which will probably show specifics, but I'd really encourage you to read the whole thread from the top anyway. In addition to info on why some can and some can't be made again, it's a great look into how these controllers evolved and what goes into them. A lot of them were originally commission pieces (I have the Q*Bert prototype), so if there's something you don't see it doesn't hurt to ask! But basically the thread will show you why some can't be made anymore ...limited editions, dye no longer available or they're just too much work. I think some of the hand controllers actually tick all three of those boxes!
  12. Count me in for when they're available. This sounds like a great idea!
