  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. The original very rare super game Grogs Revenge, by Coleco Canada, was release with a nasty bug. When you use the warp codes listed in the manual for mountain 1, and you warp up to Level E, and went into any cave, the screen went black, and the game froze. Well Thanks to Oscar Toledo, that bug has been repaired using the following modification... From Oscar Toledo, I've analyzed the game and I've trimmed down the bug. 1. The bug happens when entering any cave of level E of mountain 1. 2. The game has an internal buffer of 64 bytes. 3. The buffer is filled with X+Y+Y elements (shells, stalactites and stalagmites) 4. Coleco programmers made a mistake, the total number of elements was 57+20+20 = 97, this doesn't fit in the buffer of 64 bytes. 5. This is the only level where they made the mistake. 6. I've patched it to 16+20+20 = 56 elements. Find annex the patched DDP file (byte $5374 in file changes to $10, this is $b074 in ADAM memory) BTW, the passwords for mountain 1: 2,2-3,3-4,4-5,5-6,6 For mountain 2: 2,2-2,3-4,4-4,5-6,2-7,8 For mountain 3: 4,2-6,6-7,1-2,3 Now. After fixing that bug, another one popped up where you warped past level E, the game would go into oblivion, and crash. Oscar has fixed that problem too, with the following modification... >>> For block patch this is block #28, sector #3, blk: 93 (it contains $06, patch to >>> $05) and blk: 120 (it contains $06, patch to $04) >>> People who have this game, sealed or not, are going to need these modifications to use the game. So make note of these changes. Any questions, let me Know. I'm on atariage as Klasko54
  3. Picked this up recently and just wanted to share. I had never come across a boxed version of the Adam Digital Data Drive and thought it was pretty cool (maybe it's common?). I found a PicNSave Ad as well listing the price from 1984
  4. I tried searching for this topic, but I couldn’t find it. If it already exists, sorry about that! Please let me know the link, then, as I’ve had trouble finding results that were helpful to me. I’m new to the Adam, and I took a chance on a cheap auction that has no printer. I’ve seen vague references to other options, but I couldn’t find many details. For new folks and non-technical folks, can we have a list of all the known alternatives for power supplies other than the giant printer that wipes tapes when it’s turned on? I’ve heard it’s possible to make one, but how does a newbie go about doing that? Detailed info on any alternatives would be great! I can update this top post with all the different suggestions so it’s easy for new folks to find. Thanks for your help, everyone!
  5. I recapped one ADAM and the other one I just can't figure out. I have the first working just fine but when I went to repair my second ADAM I encountered an anomaly. Of course I checked the power supply and all lines are correct. 12v 5v and -5v...Ground... Well, after changing a burned out tant cap the voltage on that line stabilized to +5 which it should however.. The trace feeding L4 and all the circuits on that line shows 24v which leads me to believe that 2 12v lines are being combined if such a thing is possible. I mean, it's only being fed 12v into the system so how can there be 24v unless the power is being double by something. Capacitor filled to 24v then dumping the power somewhere? If someone has suggestion then I can give a more accurate detail of my testing but that is the major points. All the main chips seem to be fine and are all being fed only 5 volts. The 12v is only used for the digital data drive motors so the circuit is isolated to my knowledge. Either way, I can't get it to boot up until I stabilize that back down to 12v
  6. I'm looking for someone to do some repair work on a 1977/78 TRS-80 Model 1 (Level 1) and a Coleco Adam. The TRS-80 needs a key replaced (I have a spare keyboard to pull parts from) and has an issue with the video sync (I think). The Coleco Adam is having some power issues, but I think it's coming from the console itself as it won't power on when one or both of the cassette drives are plugged in, but the power light comes on when they're disconnected. It also has no video, as far as I can tell. I'm more flexible with the TRS-80, since I already have the motherboard removed from the cabinet and could easily ship that, but I'm hoping to find someone who already owns an Adam so I can ship just the console with the data drives installed. I do have a spare printer motherboard I could send as well if needed, though, but it would be more expensive. Anyway, if this sounds like something you could do, let me know and we can discuss pricing. Thanks!
  7. I recently purchased this alternative power supply for my Coleco Adam from rey_1178 here on AA. Not only is it a major space saver in that it replaces the Adam Printer PS, but it runs quiet and cool and looks awesome! If anyone is interested or has additional questions you can PM rey_1178.
  8. I read about this but only a brief description. Walters software Is there such a thing? How far did it go? If so why not expand this into the new ADAM OSX? Anyone want to fill in the blanks.
  9. Hi. This is a full screen 40 column text editor for the Adam computer I wrote in 8080 assembly under CP/M, called ADAMED. It's a definite improvement over the ED editor I plan on using it to create programs directly on the ADAM rather than mess with emulators. Video demo of ADAMED Adamed.zip
  10. I am wondering if a small color TV can safely sit on an Adam computer? I have a full working Adam computer, along with a spare base unit and parts base unit that I'd like to set up again with a small, RCA colortrack TV that I picked up not long ago. Both my Colecovisions have issues, yet the Adam worked great the last time I used it, but it hogs quite a bit of space with that printer and being able to possibly set the tv on the unit might save some space. Want to check about that before I do it though.
