The previously mentioned “dead” Coco 3 is back up and running. I removed the goofy air mover and replaced the CPU. It now has a socket and 6309 🙂
I’ve found 20 more pictures and have added them to the collection HERE
I finally ordered and received my copy of bomb threat and what great coco game! I’m really enjoying it. For those that don’t know Bomb threat was written by Rick Adams who is also the author of Temple of Rom and Shanghai that were sold in Radio Shack. Bomb threat was a game he wrote back in the 80’s shortly before the coco 3 came out. At the time he was unable to get it marketed and it was forgotten about. In recent years it came up but unfortunately the original game and source code were lost. More recently he recreated the game from scratch and now it can be played.
I really like that it gives the option to run it in color on a RGB monitor.
I originally ordered this capacitor set from ebay for my original Coco. Unfortunately my working coco 3 was acting strange and I decided to re cap it. It was pretty easy for me to do. The only issue was I had modify my 512k board to fit since the cap (C63) under it was slightly taller than the old one. See the picture below. Maybe I’ll get a triad board at some point. Everything works much better now. I’ve Already ordered another one!
