Colecovision last new core and issues

Post by Lroby74 »

Hello everybody,
using the last core of Colecovision, the game "Antartic Adventure" presents a strange issue that with previous core was not present

If you move joystick in diagonals (UP + LEFT or RIGHT) during playing, game will be accelerated.. if you release game will return normal.

Same thing if you use keyboard to simulate joystick

Hope for a fix in next release

Thank you ^_^

I don't get it, if you press up, the speed increases, indicated by the speedometer at the top.

Ah, ok I see now.

Upd.: try the new release, I added an option to disable the steering wheel (it's the default).

Are you talking about name of the core, the game, or what else? :shrug:

The original maker was Arnim Laeuger, more than 10 years ago. Since that many people took it and modified, well, including me.

Played a bit with SG-1000 mode, and added Sega Keyboard support. Now you can program in Sega Basic :)

Thanks a lot. How about Adam Computer ?. It's an expansion for the ColecoVision, well known as Model III.

Its tape and keyboard controllers are much more complicated (using a 6801 MCU).

Yeah. Maybe it's a matter of time. It does not have to be for today nor for tomorrow.
It's like the Oric core, which is stopped by the keyboard itself.
Without hurry and without pause, learning and doing tests and with the help of others you can get new cores, as I say, from micros that are mythical, like the Oric, Dragon and in this case the Adam Computer.

Anyway, Thanks very much for your effort and dedication.
