  1. I'm trying to gauge the interest in 5-1/4" game disk labels and reproduction disk sleeves for the ADAM computer. It took me some time to find a suitable label stock that would stay on the disk. For some odd reason the label stock that I use for cartridges did not stay on the textured surface of a 5-1/4" diskettes. I'm also trying to gauge which ADAM disk sleeve that you guys would prefer. I'm looking at $1.50 per label and $1.50 per disk sleeve (plus shipping). Here are the current label titles I have: Here are the two disk sleeves. The first sleeve is done in the style of ADAM and is not a reproduction. The second sleeve is a stylized reproduction (I say stylized because it is not a 100% image perfect reproduction, but its pretty close). These new disk sleeves are made of 110 lb card stock. This is the thickest card stock I can push thru my printer. This is what your diskettes would look like with these labels and sleeves. (REMEMBER I'M NOT SELLING THE DISKETTES THEMSELVES. Just the labels and sleeves.) Let me know what you guys think and if there is enough interest, I will open this up for purchase.
  2. 100% never used, still in the box. DDP's still shrink wrapped, not a single smudge on the entire unit. However it didn't come with the manuals and I am ticked. The guy who sold it to me said there were none. I need a set of never used, never bent, never smudged, still in the wrapper manuals. Anyone out there? MH
  3. Which ADAM console version is recommended from a reliability standpoint (you know, less failure)? I think I remember a lot of you say the version that is the add-on for the ColecoVision console (Expansion Module 3). Correct? If I ever find another CV console in the future (and don't you guys hold your breath), I would like it to be modified a la what Yurkie had been doing for all (or most of) the rest of you CV fans in want, also for reliability reasons. Same would go for the standard Hand Controllers and maybe even the Super Action Controllers (I wish I knew what you guys would recommended so as to modify these controllers to be made more reliable; I know the Atari 5200 controllers also have that kind of honor, of breaking down prematurely, and that the Rev. 9 versions of those hand controllers are recommended for that reason). ~Ben
  4. So, I've bagged myself an ADAM, the keyboard, the printer and a controller plus a data pack still in the box from a neighbor -- and for $20! what a steal, eh? There's a bit of a problem, though: When I got it the machine itself was in rather sad shape, and more or less inoperative. It's pretty obvious the thing's spent the last thirty years in the dude I got it from's garage. Exterior condition's pretty messy and on boot the machine partially renders the word processor and hangs, leaving the under-oiled printer to repeatedly slam the...uh... platen*? ... into the side over and over. Since that may not have been the clearest explanation, here's a video showing off the machine failing to boot. For clean-up I've done a bit of toothbrush-and-isopropyl cleaning work on the main unit's case, and the expansion slots. did a bit on the PCB inside the printer too, but I'm afraid of what might happen if I brush up against that huge cap on the board. Efforts thus far have not helped the machine much, sadly. I'd like to do some more in-depth scrubbing, but I still need to figure out how totally tear the printer and console apart. Anyone know what's up with this thing and how I can fix it? Can this thing be saved? If worst comes to worst, I have some experience with a soldering iron and I do own a SMT soldering station. I have to admit I've never really done any particularly tricky repairs before but I'm willing to give this one a shot. Here's another photo, showing about as far into the startup process as the machine gets. *this may or may not be the first printer of it's type I've worked with. actually never seen the internals of a non-inkjet or a non-laserjet before, lol... more like a typewriter than anything. kinda weird.
  5. OK, so I just installed an f18a on my ADAM a couple of days ago and it worked great...until I put my ADAM back together today and now when I turn it on I get this screen. Any ideas? I'm not looking forward to tearing the thing apart again!!!
  6. I have some stuff sitting around in my garage, all of these things are tested working perfectly. Noted if missing parts or accessories: I'll get pictures up soon. Atari Flashback 2 w/manual - looks new works perfectly but no power supply, no joysticks Several Atari 2600's, 4 switchers, light sixer - no power supplies Atari 2600 heavy sixer - works perfectly but needs a video cable and the power switch post is busted off (switch itself is functional however). Coleco ADAM software bundle: Smart LOGO, Smart Filer - both have all the packaging and manuals etc., tested working. Coleco ADAM small stack of user manuals, SmartBASIC manuals, SmartWriter manuals - look brand new. If any interest lets work a trade deal, as always I collect: Commodore, Atari 8-bit, Timex-Sinclair, TI-99/4A, Coleco Adam, TRS-80 Color Computer - Don't collect Atari 2600 stuff per se. Commodore 1531 would be great, Coleco ADAM disk Manager software, SmartBASIC tape or disk, Carts... let me know what you have - I'm in Washington State.
  7. A couple years ago I posted a large CV & ADAM collection of files on a file sharer that I eventually removed late last year due to it being outdated. I haven't had time to of late to finish the reorganization and clean-up, so I have decided to make available all the ADAM software DDP and Disk Images once again. Thanks for everyone's patience who has sent me PMs re. the updated collection... one of these days I'll get everything back up and available. Here is the link to the software collection... http://www.mediafire...bfu78g7x1bno1ci ED: These Image Files are for use with ADAM Emulators or they can be converted back to ADAM 5 1/4" Disk using an MS-DOS program called DCOPY. Use the Forum Search function for threads detailing how to perform these conversions.
  8. There is a graphic text adventure game for the ADAM by Graftex Software called The Abominable Snowman. For years we've thought we had the complete game on disk, but as it turns out it was just a demo. The game actually comes on two disks. We've located Disk #1, but have yet to find Disk #2. Does anyone out there have both disks??? Or the complete game on data pack?
  9. Well, the mailmen have been delivering a lot of CV goodies today. First we have the CAT S.O.S. cartridge, which is more than likely the only one in existence, and now I have received the CV Prototype Hand Controller with Speed Roller... the only one known to exist, but I have to believe that there is at least one more floating around out there. Suffice it to say that I immediately tested the controller with multiple test utilities like Nuvatec's Super Action Controller Tester and Bruce Tomlin's Controller Tester and am ecstatic to say that the controller is 100% operational (Speed Roller and all) and is actually very responsive considering it's age and that it didn't look like it was ever opened to be cleaned. Here are the pics for everyone's pleasure and note that I need to redo these pics as I had to use my kids old camera and the clarity isn't the greatest.
