ColemPS2 version 2.0
By Jum 2002-2016
An updated version of my PS2 port of the "COLEM" Colecovision emulator. This version is coded to run off of a CD. It has been tested with many game images and almost all run fine. I'd say about 95% of the games are playable.
1. Find the Colecovision BIOS rom "coleco.rom", or one of the hacked Colecovision roms (the hacked versions normally bypass the irritating 12-second title screen when the Colecovision boots up).
2. Find some Colecovision game images. Make sure that they are exactly 8K, 16K, 24K or 32K. (Some images have a 50-byte header added, and they don't work).
3. Place the bios rom file in the same directory as "COLE_123.45" and the other files in the zip.
4. Place your game roms in a sub-folder called ROMS.
5. Use ImgBurn to burn a PS2 CD which contains these files and the ROMS folder.
6. Boot the CD on your PS2.
PS2 Controller Mapping:

- Turbo - For games that use the Turbo Controller (eg: Turbo -Steering Wheel)
- Slither - For games that use the Roller Controller (eg: Slither -Trackball)
ColemPS2 2.0 Change List
1. Tidied up the rom selector
2. Removed extension (.ROM) from being displayed in ROM selector (NB: NO NEED TO REMOVE THE .ROM EXTENSION OFF ROM FILES!)

6. Render 5th sprite (DigDug title screen)

9. Fix to border / backdrop colour
10. Turbo controller emulation

- SELECT for Coleco *

Almost all Coleco roms should play fine except for these few:

If you have problems with control/input, press R3 on the PS2 dualshock, and
change the controller option to match the game.
Also note that roms should be either 16k, 24k or 32k.

Thanks to UniqueUserName of PSX-Scene for these screenshots
ColemPS2 is (heavily) based on Marat Fayzullin's "Colem" "portable" Colecovision emulator source code, so thankful credits are due to Marat.
Credits to the writers of the Colecovision tech docs, and the writers of the MESS Colecovision source code.
Many thanks to madcow (UniqueUserName) for motivating me to update ColemPS2, and for all
his testing, glitch reports, and feedback.
Thanks to Guichi for the menu/select screen backdrop art. His name is off the bottom of the screen in NTSC mode.
Greets to all psx devers and ps2 devers.

BGFTP v1.0 (by GrapheneCt): Background FTP server for transfering file to your VitaDeveloper GrapheneCt has released BGFTP, a new FTP server that works in the background. It does not matter if your in-game or sleep mode or hanging around the Live Area, The FTP transfers are always working while the developer says this will not impact any performance of the running task, but does add a warning that transfer can be slowed down since they are running on Reserved System Cores and will be knocked to low priority on those reserves, but nonetheless a great way to transfer files from your PC (or other devices servicing as a FTP server) to either your homebrew enabled PS Vita or the PlayStation TV (aka vita tv)..Continue reading
The Power Supply (Vol. 02) - Our Guest Today: "PS4 Developer @m0rph3us1987"With the very first introduction of our new Series of Developer Interviews - as known by "The Power Supply" - you were already allowed to dabble a little bit with Volume 01 of the series, where you got a deep look into the work from well-known Developer @deank he did for this scene. While he worked mainly for the PS3 Community, we thought it would be only fair to bring you a PS4 Developer with Volume 02 of this Interview Series today. This Developer maybe don't have the same long reputation as deank have since he began to tinker with the PS4 as his very first Sony Console. But this doesn't mean that he isn't worth to ask some questions. We covered his Achievements already in the past here in this Forum, especially when we provided you our yearly Overview about the CCC Events held in Germany. In fact, you should be familiar with him and his Lecture he held back at 35C3. So please give an warm welcome to m0rph3us1987, while in his Interview, we will talk about his Lecture he held, we will learn how he sees the current situation in "PS4 Development and Hacking" and we will get an deep insight how he began to learn writing some code in his young age. So allow us to introduce him further.Continue reading
