  1. Just want to gauge the interests about the Coleco / ColecoVision (ADAM) History Book The book is first going to be available as hard copy Then later will become available as Ebook Are you interested by this book? Also, feel free to post questions, suggestions, comments and critics
  2. I just ran across this on Twitter, a new DIY ColecoVision RGB board by Citrus3000psi. Still in prototyping phase but will hopefully be coming out soon, after some more testing. This might be a nice alternative to the F18A for DIY'ers. Check out @citrus3000psis Tweet: https://twitter.com/citrus3000psi/status/953443909501444096?s=01 Now if someone would come out with a better Intellivision RGB board, I'd be on cloud 9!
  3. Here's the development thread for Leisure Suit Toby (Larry) I'll post development progress in this thread I've about 75% of all graphics done, I need to double check some though So here's a few screens that has already been verified and works for CV
  4. I was lurking the web and stumbled onto an old game system that is very rare and little known about: The VTech CreatiVision. I am posting here about this because this system was released before the ColecoVision and has very similar hardware (same Texas Instruments video & audio chips). The ColecoVision even looks a bit like the CreatiVision. I had assumed that Coleco was being completely original with their hardware and design (and that maybe Sega somewhat "copied" Coleco with their SG-1000), but now I think otherwise... The VTech CreatiVision was released in 1981 in Hong Kong, one year before the ColecoVision's release date. The Sega SG-1000 was released a year after the ColecoVision, in 1983. All 3 consoles use the same video and audio chips. There is little known about this console-computer system. There were a couple old threads, but I wanted to make a new one here. Some info on the CreatiVision: http://www.classic-consoles-center.at/creativision http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VTech_CreatiVision Even the games on this system (many released in 1981) look and sound like early ColecoVision games: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fxxfdZqSpQ&feature=endscreen http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmKKj8Cyy5k http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ur0GA1hTiiU Do you think Coleco knew about this console from VTech before they started development themselves? What about Sega and their SG-1000? In any event, I'd like to get my hands on a CreatiVision and a SG-1000 someday. Discuss
  5. Today I was lucky enough to pick up an ADAM that looks to be in excellent cosmetic shape and includes a floppy drive! So I have now joined the world of ADAM owners. I hardly ever see these available for sale in my area so I had to jump on it. I believe I got a pretty decent deal, in fact I'm so pleased by the purchase I'm giving the seller a plug at the end of my post as he has a video game selling business and he will soon have some lovely boxed ColecoVision items to sell if anyone here is interested... The photos below show all that I picked up. The only things missing are the data cables for the disk drive and keyboard, so I can't take her for a test drive just yet. It smells a bit like cigarette smoke so it needs a good cleaning, and I'm going to brighten up her plastic with some hydrogen peroxide and UV light. Anyway, today feels like Xmas and I feel like a kid again The seller is ACME Video Games, Mike Dymus owner/proprietor. He is currently selling stuff on eBay and Kijiji. http://stores.ebay.com/ATARI-ACTION http://www.kijiji.ca/o-posters-other-ads/1134787
  6. I was playing Jr Pac Man with the Coleco Gemini Atari 2600 clone joystick / paddle and decided to try a paddle game, Circus Atari. The short throw joystick is great for quick turns and reverses. The paddle, however, was jitter city. The second controller did not jitter so I decided to clean or replace the paddle part. Remove the four corner screws and the Center screw. Five screws. They sure didn't go cheap here as there is a sixth screw, but that is for the joystick. Leave that one in. No clips, it just opens. OMG, there is no potentiometer! Well, not completely true - it is like a big exposed potentiometer. It is just a circuit board with a carbon strip that will change the resistance value. I have seen them smaller, used for volume knobs on radios. If used a lot they wear down and cause noise when moving. Is Coleco cheap, or brilliant? I am still not sure, but this makes cleaning a breeze, and replacement impossible. So, out comes my ancient "Realistic® Tape Recorder Head Lubricant" and a bit of paper towel. A quick wipe, put it back together... And it is rock steady! A fixed paddle controller. Tip: when using with Harmony cartridge, holding down the fire button changes the way the stick / paddle is read by the menu software.
  7. This is the last of 3 large ADAM Computer Packages that I have made available to AtariAge members. If you have been considering picking up an ADAM Computer, I would seriously consider this package as it will be the last one I assemble and eBay is not the best option to use when buying ADAM Computers unless you get lucky with an honest seller. I have up for sale a very large ADAM Computer package that I have meticulously assembled with the idea of offering it up for sale to someone here on AtariAge that has been looking to buy one of these systems, but did not want to go thru all the time, hassle and expense of finding "working" components of the system.... let alone test and clean everything and then acquire software to use with it. Each item listed out below has been tested, disassembled, cleaned, re-assembled and tested again very thoroughly over the course of the last three weeks to the best of my abilities and using all the available ColecoVision and ADAM test utility cartridges and software that I have available to me. As far as the system and all the extras stand, they are in 100% working condition and physically are in good condition. Local pickup is very welcome if you are within a reasonable distance. Shipping will be via the best option that I can find, not necessarily the cheapest, with USPS being the frontrunner currently and will be insured accordingly. The ADAM Computer lot will be packaged up into two separate boxes that combined will weigh roughly 40pds. I have yet to package everything up, but as soon as I do, I will post details of the box sizes and weight so that shipping cost estimates can be made. I will consider any and all Foreign purchasers. Here is the complete list of everything I have amassed along with a large number of pictures: Complete ADAM Stand-Alone Computer System with built-in ColecoVision - Memory Console (Revision 80 - last one made by Coleco) - NEW OLD STOCK - ADAM Logic Board installed in Memory Console - Digital Data Drive (has been speed calibrated) - False Digital Data Drive Door - Printer with built-in system Power Supply (printer ribbon and print wheel in good shape) - Keyboard with ADAMnet Cable and Hand Controller Attachment - 2 Hand Controllers - RFI Kit - ADAM RF Switchbox with RF Cable Set of ADAM Owner's Manuals - Programming with ADAM: A Simple Guide to SmartBASIC - ADAM Set-Up Manual: Getting Started - ADAM System Check-Out and Trouble-Shooting Guide - ADAM SmartWRITER Easy Reference Guide - ADAM Word Processing: Typing with ADAM - Supplement to the ADAM Set-Up Manual for the SmartWRITER Printer (not pictured) Coleco ADAM 5 1/4" Floppy Disk Drive - original Power Supply - 3ft ADAMnet flat cable - Disk Manager software (copy, not original) Coleco ADAM 64K Memory Expander (Coleco brand, not 3rd Party) - byte tested to be good from address 00000 to 65535 with Homebrew test software - with original Manual Wico Command Control Joystick for CV or ADAM 2 blank ADAM Digital Data Packs (1 Loran brand - the manufacturer of DDPs for Coleco) PitStop cartridge with manual (French/Canadian release) Coleco ADAM software on Data Packs: - Buck Rogers Super Game (original) - Donkey Kong Super Game (original) - Donkey Kong Junior Super Game (original) - SmartBASIC (original) - SmartLOGO (original case, replacement DDP) - VideoTunes (a terrific 3rd Party music composition program) (original) ADAM Software on 5 1/4" Disk (copies of Homebrew/3rd Party releases): - ADAM Bomb II (the best game ever made for the ADAM... hands down) - BrainStorm (a great mix of Tetris and Hangman) - CopyCart+ v2.0 (the best cartridge copy program) - Diablo (one of my favorite ADAM games) - Family Feud Question Pack - Family Feud Writer (make your own Question Packs) - File Manager v3.0 (the best copy utility program with numerous features) - Jeopardy Question Pack - Jeopardy Writer (make your own Question Packs) - MicroChip (a tremendous Homebrew game made in 1995) - Temple of the Snow Dragon (2 disk monster of a graphics adventure game) ADAM Software on 5 1/4" Disk (copies of Coleco releases) - ADAM Utilities (a collection of Coleco In-House utilities for testing the ADAM Computer) - ADAMCalc - CP/M 2.2 & Assembler - Disk Manager (included with the 5 1/4" Disk Drve) - Electronic FlashCard Maker - ExperType - Richard Scarry's Best Electronic Wordbook Ever (2 disk set) - SmartBASIC - SmartFILER with manual - SmartLOGO - 2010: The Text Adventure - The ADAM Home Software Library (for the 32 Basic Programs book) - B.C.

  8. Atarileaf asked this question and I thought it was a cool question so I did a video response on it. I would love to hear everyone else's answers on the question. The games don't haft to be for the Colecovision but since the Colecovision should be everyone here's favorite system I figure it will be mostly all Colecovision games here. You don't haft to do a video response you can just post the answers here. I would love to see pictures or video responses as those are the most fun to see. ****Remember you must have the cart only in your collection for it to be "wished" to turn into a CIB(Complete In Box).**** Here is my 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0r5YxvqGnfE&feature=youtu.be

  11. I'm wondering if anyone could confirm the release dates of every single ColecoVision cartridge that was released? I'd like to think that Coleco would release 10-20 titles per year (and how many per quarter, or every three months, of each calendar year?). For the late July 1982 launch, these were the games that were released initially: 2411 - Donkey Kong (included with ColecoVision console) 2417 - Venture 2419 - Mouse Trap 2433 - Lady Bug 2434 - Cosmic Avenger 2435 - Zaxxon 2443 - Smurf Rescue in Gargamel's Castle 2445 - Carnival Turbo (2413) was released in October 1982 and was included with the Driving Module accessory. Other titles shown in the 1982 brochure that were released later: 2415 - Space Fury (released January 1983) 2439 - Ken Uston Blackjack/Poker (released January 1983) 2422 - Head to Head Football (released January 1984 as Super Action Football) 2423 - Head to Head Baseball (released October 1983 as Super Action Baseball, included with the Super Action Controllers set) Thank you, Ben Edge
  12. Hi Guys! ... and Gals! First, I want to thank you all for your support during those last 4 years! Infact, we will celebrate the 5th years of CollectorVision in 2013, in May exactly It's alreay been 5 years now since I founded CollectorVision in May 2008 The goal behind CollectorVision was to make games based on the wonderfull works done by Eduardo Mello and Daniel Bienvenu. I also wanted to make something different at the same time, wich was some collectors stuff, hence the name ''COLLECTOR's VISION'' So expect to see something ''special'' for the 5th Anniversary of CollectorVision In 2010, I started writting in a TXT file. everything I know and learned about ColecoVision and Coleco. The idea was to make a book out of it in the future. In 2011, I made ALOT of progress with the book by adding ALOT of unseen photos and stuff Last year, we release SO MUCH games that I did not really found the time to resume works on the book..... but also on the Museum ( colecoindustries.com ) The book MUST get release THIS year! In 2013, I will upload everything on the website so people could FINALLY access all contents I want this website to contains everything a Coleco/ColecoVision fans need The Museum was founded by Jim Notini (NIAD) and I Next, onto the homebrew stuff! We will soon release the previously unavailable: SOS CAT , wich the CV Brotherhood saved! Mario Bros will also get (re) release soon too The next projects are WIP including Monster Bash, RollerBall and Lode Runner There's alot more, but I will talk about those later as I need to close some circles before Final thing, 4 Atariage members founded a new software ''company'' named: Rewind MasterMind We will release our first game on the new game console: OUYA The first game we are making is a game commisioned by a man who was invloved with a 80s/90s company who released NES games The game we are making is a remake of their ''famous'' game, should I say I'm not allowed to talk about the details of the game yet, but all I can say for now is the game is a 16-bits game based on an old NES game franchise Hope to get your support for this game and the next others! So, Happy new year everyone and take care! Cheers and happy gaming! J-F BTW: I do have ALOT of emails/PM to respond, I'll get back to this real soon, sorry I took some weeks off
  13. I had some Coleco Gemini Controllers included when I bought some games off a kijiji ad and when I bought a system. My problem: I opened them and cleaned them and there was black gunk all over the connectors. I first ran it through stella with the 2600 daptor 2 and it was funny. The dial moved the ship in defender and the stick when I pushed up would shoot but when I had the case off it would work no problem. I tried ms pac man on a 2600 and it worked the button worked and the joystick worked (with the case on). When I tried it on breakout the dial worked but I had to press up on the joystick to shoot the ball (This was also on a 2600). Now what I think it is I used too much rubbing alcohol and took something out of the board but I just want to fix and remedy it. There was possibly some black gunk that was supposed to be there possibly? HELP!
