1991 – as a 21 year old I packed away my Coco3 and MC-10 to get on with my life. After all it’s hard to meet chicks in front of the computer (not so hard these days!). Anyway nearly 20 years later I’m coming home. My beutiful wife thinks it’s hillarious that I have this interest. I’ve talked about getting the system out of the closet (!) for ages. She has always lovingly mocked me about it but you know what?…I’m sitting there installing an NTSC Coco3 board into my ausie case (gotta have the artifact colours), moved the 512K board from my PAL board onto the NTSC board (remembering cap65) and she is like wow that is cool. I dunno it’s just a little win I wanted to share…oh and making the kids play retro games is fun as well…need to dissable the Wii first for this to work properly.
I think it’s amazing that you are all on here keeping the COCO going. Well done to you all. I’ve just ordered the micro SD pak so really looking forward to that, not sure how long it takes but I can wait.
My next mission is to see if I can track down info on Australian COCO magazine. Doesn’t come up with much in a google search. I was hoping there was an archive out there. Used to contribute to Australian MICO and Australian COCO. Had a couple of games published and one wound up on the Best of COCO-OZ which was a compilation tape /disk that GOLDSOFT used to distribute through their magazines.
Anyways sorry for the long post. Just wanted to say hi…
