  1. Question, in regards to the input lag, could you make a version of Amico with more lag? I'm certain some in the YouTube community would benefit from it. 😏
  2. Well this was to be expected. And even with that I have no doubt you will still make progress just slower progress. I hope you all can make a release before summer. Hang in there. California is in a massive hole. Hope you all can eventually climb out of it
  3. Well wasn't referring to online play. Jist that there was something discussed about selling your game and it being physical media but that rfid like in the amiibos this wouldn't be. So my thought was what if you decided to sell your game and the digital code was extracted from my console and placed in another. Leave one console and loading into another. Could the code be written that when a game is sold its directly downloaded from the Amico it was the sold from that sellers console?
  4. Ok I have an idea about the games alway having support in the future and how the physical media could work without a server. And I know its out there but I wanted to say it anyways. If there is at least 1 console in the world connected to the internet with the game you want in it could it be possible that your Amico could connect to it and copy the code to too your console. Basically all the Amicos are connected for this purpose? Allowing the games to be accessible.
  5. Ok haven't been on on a while so sorry if this has been asked. With the recent buzz of you showing some Youtubers the physical media can we get a confirmed date when you will show the rest of us commoners?
  6. Holy crap thats amazing. Hats off to you sir well done. Love to have that game.
  7. And thats totally fair. I mean its a vintage toy not a heart replacement. I get it. All I was saying is is updates means alot even if you tell everyone you are putting this project on hold for a few months. Thats all I was getting at.
  8. Look I feel everyone needs to cool it. And to claim this other guy was l Milking it is a stretch. We all had been asking got nothing, not a response. This happens alot on Atariage. Ive been waiting a year and others 2 or more years to get a response from a guy to make nuon controllers. Of which hes already made in the past and sold then states more are coming and nothing for years. So spare everyone the drama. 511 is no doubt busy and I get that. But it only takes a couple of minutes to update your thread and give your interested ones that update. I was there when the other person came in and took on the project as well. Yet 511 hadn't responded not once till months later. Telling me it wasn't that important to him. You can say what you want but in the end dropping in once a month to let everyone know your still trying, goes a long ways. I get alerts when this thread has new comments as well as others. And I'm not the originator of it. Yet 511 not once responded when that other person jumped in. Why is that? Because he wasn't making it a priority. Not interested, not at least all those months this thread went dark. I watched people come every month asking about it and zero response. As I said earlier this isnt uncommon on Atariage so sorry if you think people have lost faith because its been a repeat experience on here. Also I might add that if it wasn't for that other guy who knows how long 511 would have taken to move this along. Might have been the necessary fire under the feet this project needed. IMHO
  9. Im glad this had gotten resolved. Its pathetic how people will go to these lengths to paint a picture so people unknowing and uneducated on the subject to get people to think their way. Its this type of approach that my grandfather took a bullet in ww2 to help end. Sad that its come back. People often think im as radical in dealing with them but its different because I dont hide behind a fake persona and I use truth. Sure we shouldnt give them any attention but then we also only let them have the voice. The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for. Get up, stand up, Stand up for your rights. Get up, stand up, Don't give up the fight. Bob Marley
  10. Your correct. Its been dormant too long. I get it its difficult and you have to keep people informed. I had a similar situation with something and people were asking me all the time and I just responded the facts. And when it didnt pan out I told them. He has a point about you having your own spot and thats actually better. I was thinking this project was dead. Then you came and got things moving. In the end I hope this lites the fire on this project and gets this little handheld the attention it needs. Thanks for your efforts
  11. I wanted to post a comment so I can be in the loop. I'm happy with your continued work on this.
  12. Im glad to see you back. And definitely think you should continue moving forward. None of this would have happened and raised interest in this little ol handheld if you hadn't gotten the ball rolling. I think having 2 in the works is great. In the end its a passion project and keep gaming history alive. Anything I can do to help promote it let me know. Thats for you and rwburbage
  13. Yo Tommy, any possiblity a 8 player brawler like this will be coming to the Amico? Maybe have a allstars group of characters. Frogger, running man, qbert, dig dug, EWJ, global gladiators, joust, and whatever else that could be added.
  14. Im late to this, so sorry, but that was a epic moment. Facts are facts....
  15. Especially when the hardware guys says you can just pull the cpu and swap it with a snapdragon. But then you realize your hardware GUY is 16 and that cpu is soldered to the mainboard 🤣🤣🤣
  16. Do you still make these and if so do you ship to the States? Also do you know bbn of anyone that does reproduction boxes for the colecovision console itself
  17. I get what you are saying. It definitely has a sound thats a tad out of tune the the other sounds. Also at 1st I had a problem with the paddle itself. The blurred effect caused me to miss the ball. But after a while I got the hang of it.
  18. Ok I want to start that I'm a hugh fan of Break out, and any block breaking game. When I 1st saw the demo of the Amicos Break Out I was immediately hooked. I still enjoy playing block buster on my microvision. And this has been above and beyond my expectations. This will have my attention till its launch. Im not kidding. Thank you Tommy and everyone involved with team Amico. This is what I'm excited about most with the Amico. These kinda of games. Jump in try to beat your score for an hour get your family involved and then hop off. I wasn't 100% sure if this console would get me this excited but this game sealed it for me. And if the other games are this fun my xbox one x is going to be collecting dust lol seriously.
  19. So I just received 2 units with broken screens so add me for 3 screens total.
  20. Not sure how common the c64's had problems. They seemed pretty solid. I had one through the 90s early 2000s and never had any problems. Sold that one. And fast forward bought another one last year again zero problems and we're talking about a computer thats over 30 years old. Also will add what really is common with c64 failures is the power supply. They can fail all of a sudden and allow higher voltage to the computer and destroy it. As for the microvision. I have the newer unit with the shielding and uses 1 battery. Still works but from what I read in the past is these being stored in warmer climates or left in the sun will speed up the failure rate to the screen itself. Mine spent most of if not all of its life in the Pacific northwest which is mostly cooler climate year round. Less chances of being hot.
  21. I have gamepass but use it to try out games. If I like them I get a physical copy. One thing I miss about video rental stores is that you could usually find a rare movie or even tv series. But now you have to join a streaming membership and even with that you dont get full access or a full library. And often I find you cant rent but only buy. And lately they will show it available but its not. Not available for rent or buy. A all digital future leaves you at the mercy of what the corporation wants to make available to you. And in some cases games developed by defunct developers shut down due to bankruptcy and licences that weren't sold can often cause the online stores to no longer be available and may never be available in the future. Imagine games in the future that never had a physical copy or digital download getting lost forever when its removed from every estore due to a lawsuit on the developer. Or a company buys out the rights and wants too much money for the right to sale it or to just stream it. Or like tv and movies you have to have one of these new streaming services to play a certain game. Not having it downloaded into your drive because your streaming it and they decided to remove it. Then say bye bye. This article touches on this a bit. https://www.gamerghost.com/post/all-digital-consoles-are-a-trap
