  1. Hey! I just wanted to make the AtariAge audience aware that we have a new podcast covering the Tandy Color Computer. We just released Episode 0 yesterday! http://cococrew.libsyn.com Please give check it out, give us a listen, and let us know what you think! John
  2. Hi all! I will be moving so need to reduce my collection of vintage computer gear. I have placed some pictures of the many things I am selling on this post. I am adding new things each day. A short list of items... DECTalk Voice Synths (aka Stephan Hawkings) Tandy 1000SX IBM PC acoustic modem Tandy Model 100 Portable NEC PC201 Portable (like the Tandy 100 Portable) Compaq portable that is a beast (aka early portable!) TRS-80 CoCo with composite MOD Apple II drive Vortrax Voice Synth (a serious bad ass speech synth w/ Vortrax IC!!!!) There are some music samples CDs in my list so keep scrolling to the end. Also, there is a iSlate tablet. It's not retro but with the EYE TRACKER, it cost a total of $20K. All my items are here... https://www.ebay.com/sch/colorcomputerstore/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from= All are shipping from my place in Mass. Outside of Boston.

  3. From the album: My Game Collection

    A floppy Drive controller for a Tandy TRS-80 Color Computer. I got it with the 64k I got above.
  4. I'm extremely new to actually using the CoCo 2 and basic code in general. So I found some sample basic code in an old december issue of The Rainbow that does a little Xmas demo and i'm wondering if there is a way to type it in on my modern computer(this one is a Macbook Pro, but I can also run windows so i'm fairly platform agnostic) in a text editor and convert that file to a cassette image or a disk image I can load on the CoCo? Does this even make sense?

  6. I would like to open the discussion on EDTASM+ and your experience with it. I realize this is an Atari forum, but I'll take any input I can get I have a CoCo 2 with 64K and I'm curious how large my applications can get with it. I found this manual online: http://www.colorcomputerarchive.com/coco/Documents/Manuals/Programming/EDTASM+%20With%20ZBUG%20%28Tandy%29.pdf It's been helpful as it references EDTASM+ cartridge version. However, due to the time it was written, it goes into more detail about the 16K and 32K versions. I'm curious if it has support to take advantage of the 64K machine I have. I get that this is more than antiquated, but I have a feeling you understand why I would want to learn this. Thanks in advance to anyone who wants to discuss this.
  7. Finally picked up a FreHD for my Model III and it's definitely a slick piece of hardware. Right off it needed a case and the generic Chinese wall-wart needed to go. Decided I wanted something that would look period correct for a TRS-80. Set the Wayback machine to 1973 and picked up this nice case from Radio Shack. Used a cutting wheel on a Dremel for the SD slot and then finished with a file. The Read/Write/Power LED holes were done with a Whitney Punch and the holes covered from behind with a white translucent tape for a finished look. Also put a divider between the board LEDs so there's no light bleed between them. Added a nice Mean Well power supply and switched the line voltage so the power supply is dead when turned off...also used a grounded line cord. Really happy with how everything fit up just right. The face is pretty much a dead on match for the battleship grey and the black sides match the disk drives and keyboard. Originally I put in a blue LED for the power indicator but realized blue LEDs didn't exist until around 1990, so I put in a red one. And yes...you need a key to fire it up!
  8. In case you haven't heard, my latest book, written with Boisy G. Pitre, officially came out in paperback a few weeks back. It's called "CoCo: The Colorful History of Tandy's Underdog Computer," and tells the complete history of Radio Shack's Color Computer, complete with interviews with many of the people involved in the platform's creation and support. It already has a bunch of great reviews, with more coming to various podcasts, Websites, and magazines. (Publisher link: http://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9781466592476) (Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1466592478/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_til?tag=armcharcad-20&camp=14573&creative=327641&linkCode=as1&creativeASIN=1466592478&adid=17FYR1FBTFSRGWJ08FXW&&ref-refURL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.armchairarcade.com%2Fneo%2F) (Recent blog post about it: http://www.armchairarcade.com/neo/node/5632) The color ebook should be available soon (I'll try to remember to post again when that's available). By the end of February/Early March, my next book in the "Vintage Games" series (first book link), written with Matt Barton, should be out. It's a full color book that covers 20 of the greatest game playing platforms (computers, consoles, handhelds) of all-time entitled, "Vintage Game Consoles: An Inside Look at Apple, Atari, Commodore, Nintendo, and the Greatest Gaming Platforms of All Time." I'll also try to do a separate post when that's officially available, but for now, you can read more about it here and check out the Amazon page: http://www.armchairarcade.com/neo/node/5620
  9. I have a Tandy 1000 TL/2 computer that I acquired recently. I had to replace the hard drive and a floppy drive. I formatted the hard drive and have successfully transferred files over to it from some disk. However, I can not load any games from the hard drive. These same games will load just fine when running from the floppy itself. The weird thing is is that small utility programs, such as setuptl2 will run just fine from the hard drive. But with every game I have tried so far it will skip to the next line in the command prompt like its going to load but just freeze there. I've let it be for nearly 30 minutes once trying to load SImCIty. Any idea what might be causing this?
  10. I am selling my Atari 400 computer and Atari 410 Cassette Writer. They can be seen here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-400-Vintage-Computer-and-410-Cassette-Read-Writer-/221955724720?hash=item33ad9795b0:g:ITMAAOSwNphWXLvH -ArdsleyTank
  11. Here on eBay is ac AC adapter for the Tandy 600 portable compute laptop!! http://www.ebay.com/itm/172328028760?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  12. I just bought this unit today. It is an original 4K version of the Color Computer 1. After fiddling with the inner RF box, I finally got a nice picture and the unit does seem pretty much untouched, even though the tamper sticker and screw under it was missing. I've tried a few cartridges I had laying around, but so far it doesn't want to play them. At most I get garbage on the screen or just a green screen, even after cleaning a few times. I'm hoping it's just a case the carts I am trying are too big for this unit's 4K of RAM. I have a slightly later unit with the 32K of RAM, but I always figured I would pick up an early 4K version if I found one in decent shape. And yes, it is only running Color Basic 1.0!
  13. Hi! My name is Greg. New to the forum. Finally getting around to posting on here. I have been collecting retro computers and consoles for a number of years now, but have yet to really participate in forums. Currently I own an Amiga 600, TI 99/4A, Atari 800XL, and now new to the stable is a Tandy 1000 EX. It was obtained second hand for $5. I spent this afternoon taking the machine apart and cleaning; as well as inspecting the hardware. The computer is all clean now and boots to a prompt for a bootable discs. Herein lies the issue... I have no discs! I don't really have a way of imaging discs for 5.25 drives at this time unfortunately. After some research, I found that I will require MS-DOS 2.11 to be able to boot this machine to run software. Here are my questions. 1. Does anyone have a copy of MS-DOS 2.11 or has the means to copy a disc for me that could be mailed? 2. What is the easiest way to image these discs nowadays? Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. If you can send me a copy that would be great. I would paypal for the copy of the disc and to cover shipping.

  17. I will be contacting various podcasts, sites, and publications to get review copies of my two upcoming books, CoCo: The Colorful History of Tandy’s Underdog Computer (written with Boisy Pitre); and Vintage Game Consoles: An Inside Look at Apple, Atari, Commodore, Nintendo, and the Greatest Gaming Platforms of All Time (sequel to Vintage Games and written with Matt Barton); but if you qualify, please get in touch with me directly to save some time.

  21. I am having a problem with my TRS-80 Color Computer 2, it will not load cassettes. I just bought a new cable for it on Ebay, as i did not have one. The seller said it was made himself, it was hooked correctly into the cassette recorder, but when i try to load a cassette, it just sits there and does nothing, the motors do not run at all on the player with it hooked up, unless i hit play on the recorder, and it still will not load! any ideas?
  22. http://retrotinker.blogspot.com/2016/08/using-receipt-printer-with-cocomc-10.html Just a fun little write-up about what I did to get my CoCo and/or MC-10 to use a modern-ish RS-232 receipt printer for normal printing duties...enjoy!
  23. I've seen a couple different tape decks on eBay and i'm not sure which is the proper one to use for the CoCo, but in any event, I was hoping to acquire a cheap deck with the audio cables, say the $20 range if possible. I have exactly one cassette game that it took me weeks to track down and I am hoping that my girlfriend will actually be able to play it on her CoCo on Xmas if she wants to open the package.
  24. *Edit: I found somebody in Australia that has a complete and(seemingly) sealed copy of the game, so now i'm waiting for him to ship it out and get it in the mail. Hi all. I'm trying to sort of recreate my girlfriend's childhood in a way by piecing together the bits of her Color Computer 2 collection she had when she was a young'in(as an Xmas present), and I was hoping somebody might have or might be able to lead me towards acquiring a copy of Peanut Butter Panic. I'd prefer it CIB but i'm willing to take just the cassette tape itself. Any offers or leads are much appreciated, thanks. Here's a link to some gameplay footage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXPh8cO5lyc
  25. Well I finally got my Coco 3 today...Hooking it up to my TV & firing up Super Pitfall gave me the biggest wave of nostalgia I've had in a while ..It was like I was transported right back to the floor of my parent's living room in the late 80's lol I had the black, non self-centering joystick though when I was a kid, but this time around I got the Deluxe model. Super Pitfall & a couple other games played with no problem, but others like Thexder & Rad Warrior I couldn't get to work right. I read the manual online about the switches on the bottom & dials on the top that I was never familiar with, but no matter what I tried, nothing seemed to help. Sure it's one simple thing I'm overlooking. For Thexder the button is making him jump, but the joystick does nothing...Same with Tetris, the button drops the tiles down but nothing else works...on Rad Warrior the character just runs on his own until he gets stuck in a corner where he proceeds to run in place lol..Same thing with a couple others I've tried so far, button works but joystick doesn't...yet there are a few games where I have no issues Another thing...I was disappointed to see vertical lines on the screen on my flatscreen with the composite input. They're not bad enough to where it's unplayable though at least, but I could def do without them...I haven't tried the RF yet, but I imagine it would look worse. The picture from my modded 7800, Genesis & Super NES composite outputs is clear on the other hand....But my NES, when I 1st hooked it up to this TV it appeared to be fine..Shortly after the AC Adapter went bad (Generic universal NES/SNES/Genesis plug)..Once I got a replacement (Official NES) I now get thin wavy lines in the background of every game I happen to be using the same RCA cables on the Coco 3 that I was just using on the NES..But the chances of the cable itself being the problem would be too good to be true I'm sure...I have no others ATM, so no way to test another set anyways..Can anyone shed any light on any possible solution? I don't want to get a seperate CRT TV or play on a monitor (nor have the space if I wanted to) Thanks in advance, Steve
