New Adam Software: ColecoVision Experience Volume I & II

The ColecoVision Experience (Volume I & II) is new software written to take advantage of the VDD. Each volume is a 2mb image that contains over 60 Colecovision cartridge games that you can load from an easy to navigate menu on the Adam or within the ADAMem emulator.  There will be more software from ADAM-WARE soon (

This is the Beta version, once I am sure all of the ROM files work I will remove the beta instructions.


From the Read Me file:

There are 2 image files in this zip file ColecoV1.dsk and ColecoV2.dsk. Each is a program that will allow you to select a Colecovision game and load it from a menu. Volume 1 has 67 titles, volume 2 has 65. When the system loads press Escape to the help screen which describes which key does what. The system will remember which selection you made so the next time you reset it will go to that selection. It also remembers the colors you change the screen to.

What I would like you to do is not play the games, but test to see if each game loads and is playable. I have had issues with a few games (Alcazar, Beamrider, Pitfall to name a few) but I believe that the CV board in my Adam may have a memory issue so this is why I want you to test it. If your VDD times out when loading a ROM you will get an error screen telling how to correct it. If you want to know what that error screen looks like, at the menu unmount the VDD and then select an item to load.

If a ROM doesn’t load correctly use the Debug mode to verify that the ROM actually did load in memory. To do this, reload the program. Press TAB. You will see periods down the left column of the screen. Then select the ROM you had issues with. Instead of jumping to the ROM you should see the ROM code on the screen. If it is all 0’s then the ROM didn’t load, it is is a bunch of numbers then it did but will not run for one reason or another.

Thank you for offering to assist.

Please let me know which of the following ROM’s you have issues with by putting an X before the name and sending me back the list. If you could also tell me what hardware you have so I can see if there is a pattern to any ROMs not loading (ie ram expansion, disk drives etc).

  1. I tested all the games:

    Here are the ones that did not work:

    Alcazar loaded once to a high picthed tone, second time flashed once and went to black screen
    Amazing bumpman – got the message to unmount image, worked after that
    Beamrider – Loads and goes to a black screen (I had this with another version of this rom, think it is a bad dump)
    FrontLine – got the message to unmount image, worked after that

    Pitfall – loads to a black screen
    Quest for Quintana Roo – got the message to unmount image, worked after that
    SubRoc – got the message to unmount image, worked after that
    Super Sketch – got the message to unmount image, worked after that
    Time Pilot – got the message to unmount image, worked after that
