Adam - Screen Saver

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

 

I have my Adam up and running next to my main Windows computer and l love it turned on. However, not much is going on.

 

I was wondering if anyone knows a program like a screen saver I can run?

 

Right now I am using Fortune Builder as it has a small demo.

 

Thanks ahead of time!

Some years ago, like 15, there was a motel manager (Bob Miller ????) that used an ADAM to run a form of screen saver to the tv's in the rooms upon check in. If memory serves, he used SmartLOGO with either previously made screens or special screens he made. Logo has that ability, Francis C was quite into LOGO and had a train running around a mountain continuously.

He can use the self-running ADAMcon demo that was first used circa ADAMcon 04 and later morphed into your yearly X-mas Greetings from Adamites. All of these are available on the monthly ANN disks.

 

Another option is the Adam Demonstration Cart by Coleci and the rom is available to run from an Atarimax Multi-Cart.

 

There are numerous options, but these are the best two that come to mind.

Thanks for the update!

 

I was looking over the Internet for the Adam Demonstration Cart by Coleci and not being very lucky, anyone have a link I can use?

 

Luckily I do have the 128 in 1 cartage!

Can you elaborate on this? I want to know more because this is fascinating!

Almost positive that the person in question was indeed Bob Miller and he simply programmed or converted an existing Logo program on his Adam in SmartLogo and than broadcast it to all the rooms in the motel using what I would assume is some closed circuit TV hardware hooked up to the Adam's video/audio output.

I wonder if that program is out on the Internet somewhere or if anyone knows Bob, would be nice to add to the Coleco Library.
