Hello. 1 time of taking the super extra controller parts I kind of fixed it but I couldn't get it back together right without it being ergonomically weird. I know that Best Electronics California sells the gold set for the 5200 joystick buttons and keypads. I was wondering if there was a similar mod thatcould be done to Super Action Controllers?; I predict every couple years I have to re mail it, and I read that deep cleaning requires taking apart almost to the skeleton (the circuit board level), and read it has something to do with sandpapering off some foreign substance. Instead of mailing it every few years I wonder if there's a final solution for super extra controllers but he's just being unresponsive? Also one of the directions have fell off one of the four super extra controllers, because I could do 7 directions all except Northwest. I've opened one before and seen it has an 8 separate actuator pins, one for each Cardinal and diagonal. Does that mean that there are games that specifically support super action controls with tertiary directions, as in 16 way, where North plus Northeast equals NorthNorthEast? If that's not true or if it was meant to support 16 ways but no game actually took advantage of it, then that opens a couple of doors. what if the top joystick could be replaced by a more current arcade self stick either American or Japanese and be ambidextrous on the joystick housing. If all you need is 8 way and way to turn 8 way via 4 actuators to 8 separate actuators, and if the buttons can be replaced with "finger grip" buttons, then these suckers could go a lot longer without repair. Also eight separate actuators might give away to make a 16 way Intellivision joystick and turn eight ways plus the in-betweens into 16 ways of Intellivision, then the suprep should controller might be a combo stick Intellivision / ColecoVision / retro ambidextrous Fight Stick. I'm just spitballing night some ideas. Maybe someone can make something out of it.
So, I was trying to find a list of games that require or use the Roller Controller or the Super Action Controller. I couldn't find one, so I decided to make my own and turn to the experts here. So here is what I know, please comment and add to the list. Roller Controller Games: Centipede Omega Race Slither (required) Victory (required) Wargames Super Action Controller: Front Line (required) Rocky Super Action Boxing (required) Super Action Baseball (required) Super Action Football (required) Super Action Football/Soccer (PAL) (required) Help me flesh this list out Also, do PAL games work on NTSC systems?
Hey everyone - unfortunately I have to part ways with this colecovision. Its a Canadian version (NTSC). Comes with two working controllers that Ive taken apart and cleaned. Theyre fine. Also comes with a Super Action Controller. Its working in an acceptable manner. The white rocker panel that is supposed to go above the metal contacts was cracked when I bought it. I removed the cracked rocker panel and bent the metal pins up, so it works ok but needs a new rocker panel (which can be 3D printed) or it can be used for parts. Finally, the console is in working condition. The case is pretty clean and labels are in tact. I was getting some rf video noise, so I took it apart and thought the rf port had a cold solder joint, which it turns out, it did. However, there ended up being other issues and now Im getting significant noise and poor picture quality. A composite mod should do the trick, but since I have no coleco experience, Im going to leave that to the experts. Either way, the sum is greater than its parts, for sure. I just honestly dont have time to learn the workings of a new console. I would also entertain trades for another clean ColecoVision- dont need controllers or power supply. Would prefer it modded - could add cash to deal. MSG me with any questions. Thanks!
