By the way... I highly recommend the CoolCV emulator (for Windows, Mac, Linux, or Rasp Pi).  It works with all of the normal and SGM Colecovision roms.  You definitely should try the free "Dragon's Lair" ROM using this emulator.

Sweet, I got them all as well and I also have an Atarimax 128in1 cart, been years since I updated the roms on it but I think I might just do it at some point. Shame I do not have an SGM module though so guess only a few will work on my unexpanded ColecoVision.

Some notes on the Atarimax 128 in 1:  The file size limit for each slot is 32k, so the larger files don't work.  They do work, I'm told, on the newer Atarimax "ultimate SD" version. 

 

The "CoolCV" emulator includes SGM support, so the files do work there. 

 

The SGM is an interesting add on.  It adds much better sound and additional memory.  I've always thought that if Coleco had never come out with the Adam and had stuck to video games, they would have survived the crash of 83.  An enhanced Colecovision would have carried them into the next gen, as the hardware (Colecovision + SGM) is very similar to the capabilities of the NES and 7800.

Ah thanks for the info Rick! I will use emulator when required but good to know which ones I CAN transfer. I never bought into the SuperGame Module as it appeared at a time my funds were dwindling for such indulgences. I DO feel some envy over the newer SD Ultimate version of the Atarimax cart and a victim of the old "early adopter syndrome". One of the few times I jumped in early to get a flashcart for my Colecovision and don't get me wrong I was ecstatic to receive it but it was not long after I was offered the chance to test an early beta version of the ULTIMATE SD version of the cart, sadly I could not keep it and again I was not in a position to upgrade to the newer cartridge so I have to be satisfied with the USB 128in1 version (I  KNOW FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS BOO HOO lol).  :rofl:

My Atarimax story is a little different. I actually bought the 128 in 1 from someone who was upgrading to the ultimate SD! So I got it for a little cheaper than normal (I think I paid about $70). It's been amazing. Frankly, this 32k limit is the first problem I've run into, and it's nothing really. The ability to add 128 games is awesome if you ask me. Just program it once, and don't ever bother with your carts again.

As much as I love the Atari hardware I have to admit that for the short time I owned a ColecoVision and a few games I actually enjoyed it.  I miss having it...and missing getting to play Pepper II.  :(  I'll have to try to get one again.  Cool stuff!  I've got a Super NES I need to get going first.
