    Time to nudge the Colecovision subject again.

     

    I got my Coleco at launch having pre-ordered it. Even after they pulled out of the UK, I kept going with grey imported US cartridges which worked fine. Sadly I had to sell when I moved onto a Sega Master System, although those Master System carts and everything else since are up in the loft waiting to use. I might pull the old Megadrive down for now, see if it still works.

    I’m as keen about the PolyMega as I was when I looking at a little picture of a Coleco in a magazine in the weeks before it arrived. Magical.

    Who else out there wants a Coleco Element Module as much as me ?

    It seems to me like they could create a Colecovision module easily given the other systems that they already support. If they support Sega Genesis, then it isn’t too much of a stretch to support Sega Master System, especially since the Sega Genesis reads Sega Master System cartridges directly once the power base converter physically remaps the pins. If you have Sega Master system support, then you have a z80 and glorified TMS9918. If you have a z80 and a glorified TMS9918, then you have a strong basis for Colecovision which was a z80 and a TMS9918. If you have a Colecovision, now you have a Sega SG-1000 and an MSX.

    This would cost a lot to make however if no one bought the modules.

    I would definitely like a Colecovision module.. and any other modules the Polymega team can whip up.

    Time to bump this thread again. Now we have seen that there will be control pads included with element modules I cannot wait to see if they have come up with a Coleco solution.

    Thats nice. Although it would be nice to be able to use the overlays. It would be easy these days to print and laminate your own if needed.

    Someone on AtariAge made/showed some mockups of joypads with the original-sized keypad in the middle, d-pad on the left, action buttons on the right (possibly Super Action-compatible), and the wheel on the bottom.

    Now that E3 has passed, please can the Polymega @admin team provide an update on the possibility of a Colecovision module. Is there any hope ?

    (P.S. I’ve tried creating a new topic for this question, but for some reason, it won’t happen. But yet I can add here. Odd.)

    I personally would love that if is made I would assume it would have done most of the leg work for a Msx or sg1000 moduel as well.

    This seems to be  quiet thread. Might the Polymega team use crowd funding for modules that atract less bulk intetest? Please could they comment?
