RAM upgrades for the Tandy CoCo3

Recommended Posts

With the new release of JOUST, I've realized alot of the best stuff for CoCo3 needs 512K of RAM. a quick Google turned up the boomerang boards that looked super easy, but that gentleman doesn't seem to be making them any more. What are my options?

I thought another company was going to take over production/sales of the Boomerang.
Couldn't find it for sale anywhere though.

Yes. Another company will be taking over the sales/distribution and production of the Boomerang products. However, I will be making a final batch of 512K and 2 Meg boards and will be available in October.  I will be announce details at VCF Midwest in Chicago this weekend.

Moreover, I will be attending CoCoFEST in November.

Excuse me for interupting, but is it normal for NitrOS-9 to crash when I boot with a 2 meg board if I have'nt installed the driver yet? BTW VicViper, I've heard that some games require a patch to work with a 2-meg board. I think it's worth having the extra RAM, but if you get a 2 meg and something doesn't work, it might be that.

I ultimately went with the 512K Triad board, install was a breeze.

And Mark is a great guy to buy from.  He really knows his stuff.  I am using his RAM upgrade and Hard Drive controller, and PS2 keyboard adapter
