Looking for CoCo games and software

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I got a TRS-80 Color Computer 2 about a month ago, and I need software for it. It came with nothing other than the unit, so I ordered a tape interface cable and a floppy controller kit. I couldn't find any cheap software for tape/disk, and so I'm asking here to see if I can get a deal. If you have any cartridges, tapes or disks for the CoCo 1 or 2 (64k), contact me and we can negotiate a price.

If you want to talk CoCo and buy stuff, try the discord channel.

If you like podcasts and such.
CoCoTalk!  (youtube keeps wanting to take me to the latest episode instead of an index page)


CoCo Crew Podcast
http://cococrew.org/

There are many youtube channels with CoCo content if you search.

You'll find that https://colorcomputerarchive.com is your source for software and documentation.

 

You'll definitely want to contact Ed Snider at the Zippster Zone and get yourself a CoCo SDC controller. It replaces the disk drives and floppy controller. https://thezippsterzone.com/2020/06/25/the-coco-sdc/

 

Getting a Serial to USB cable along with DB9 to CoCo Serial cable will allow your PC to act as a additional drive(s) for your CoCo using Drivewire 4 software. The CoCo SDC is DriveWire compatible without extra software on the CoCo side. https://sites.google.com/site/drivewire4/  http://www.cocopedia.com/wiki/index.php/Getting_Started_with_DriveWire

Excellent!

 

Have fun assembling your new controller. You'll find that there is a lot of support for the CoCo online. Especially on Discord and Facebook.

 

Cheers!

Michael
