  1. While most would agree that DK for the INTV was not the "best" game for the Intellivision back in the day, you have to give credit to Coleco and CBS for getting it out there in many forms. Not including the excellent new DK Arcade which was recently released, I am aware of 10 different box variations for this videogaming work of art. I have nine of them. ( I may have a problem. ). The five across the top are CBS releases, as you can see the first three are French, English and German language variations, the fourth one is the UK PAL version, then the fifth is the multi-language International version. The bottom four are Coleco versions, two English and two bilingual English/French Canadian versions. The one I'm missing is a German version of the fourth box on the top row with the angry looking DK throwing a silver barrel. To the best of my knowledge, (and off the top of my head), DK might just hold the record for box variations for this system. After 12 years of collecting for the Intellivision, I've got to find something to keep searching for.
  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. 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

    These are my 3rd party games for the Atari 2600 (other than the Sears and M-Network) I'm getting pretty close to finishing the Activision. The spaces indicate model #'s that are missing.
  7. I picked up a Coleco Telstar Combat! today at CCAG and I have managed to get the controllers working decently now, but I can't get the left speaker to utter a peep. The right one is working fine, so I can hear the fired shots and explosions. (It was actually the one with the wire pinched in the case and still works!) I opened up the unit and checked all the speaker connections and even tested the voice coil on the silent speaker with my meter and it's not open. Any ideas as to why it's not producing any sound? I assume this is the one that makes the tank motor sounds when you move.
  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
  9. Hi guys! Today I spoke with Chris at River West Brands about the Coleco History Book so we can work something out about the Liscence BUT, we also discussed about possible partnership between River West Brands and CollectorVision Chris Is very interested to having us making new games for the ColecoVision System Wich mean, CollectorVision would become an official ColecoVision developper! Our games will now be officially liscenced by Coleco themselves Now, nothing is set in the stone yet, but there's good chances this will become a reality! I'll keep you guys posted
  10. 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
  11. Looking for a Working/Tested/Great condition/Clean Colecovision system with at least on controller (2 preferably), power supply. Doesn't have to come with original box. AV Modded is a plus, but not required. Included games are good, but not needed as I plan to grab a flash cart. PM me if you have one available! I'm in Denver, CO, 80205. Thanks, ISB
  12. 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!
  13. Here is an incredible video of Coleco executives introducing the Coleco ADAM Computer at "The Boston Computer Society" that was brought to my attention by Richard Salvati thru his Coleco ADAM website. The video was archived by "The Computer History Museum" and posted on Youtube. It is quite lengthy (runs 80 minutes), so set some time aside to watch it in it's entirety. The ADAM Computer used for the demonstration is a pre-production module that looks and functions very similarly to what was sold in stores a few months later and so far I have only noticed one difference from resale ADAMs... the file display screen when loading/saving is just a text screen instead of a file index display. I'm sure there are other differences, but I haven't watch the video in it's entirety yet, only skipping thru it. Thanks Justin for bringing this video to our attention! https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=gg_I9TGYM-w
  14. MINI-ARCADES: Ok. We get it. Atari Age users are the gurus at Hardware and Emulation. Everyone is asking for the Minis. We do need your help. Our goal is to create a Mini that is similar in size and quality as the mini's from the 80s. The goal here would be to have each mini focus on one featured game (for EXAMPLE only: Say its Ms. Pac Man on one unit, Donkey Kong on another etc.), then each unit may have a few other games on the system as well, but they would not be featured on the side stickers, and only mentioned on the box art. Please feel free to give your opinion on the technical specification of the Mini's that you would suggest. Screen type and size, emulators, hardware, platform or any other specs that you think we should consider. The more specific the better. LET'S do this as a team!... Keep in mind that we would like to keep the quality of the plastic high as well as having a mid range quality on the guts of the machine. BUT, at the same time, we would need to be able to have a retail price point that consumers would be interested in. (And while we are at it, you may as well give us an idea of what you would expect to pay for a mini). Any other advice would be appreciated. This is out first thread, and we are hoping to keep up with responses the best that we can! You can also give your opinion on the same topic on our facebook page.
  15. 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.
