      Can we download game ROM somewhere?

      My book arrived yesterday. It survived the trip pretty well, besides a small, hardly noticeable dent in one corner it looks good.

      Hey Antoine! J'ai reçu le livre ce matin et tout est #1! Congrats!

      @ Mario Meo: Hi Mario, glad to hear you got everything ok. I'll write an update for the consoles and there's some good news! Thanks!

      Hello Antoine. Looks like a sea of bad news in here, but I thought I'd drop in to say that I got the book and it arrived with no damage and everything generally looking spiffy at a glance (I just unpacked it like 5 minutes ago). I also got the game, and while I haven't opened the box yet, the box is in pretty good shape, so I figure the game is as well.

      However, I haven't seen any updates regarding the physical console. What's the word on that?

      Thanks.

      Thank you Antoine. These things happen...I appreciate your effort to help me out.

    8. Antoine Clerc-Renaud 2-time creator on

      @ Jason Cirillo: I'm sorry about that, I didn't check all the books because I thought each and everyone of them was correct. I'll send you another one.

    9. Jason Cirillo on

      I got the book today...man I want to say great things but wow, the print job is an absolute disaster. The whole book is in reverse and most pages are chopped off on the edges to where the words are cut right off! The book starts with the end and ends with the beginning...you literally have to read it backwards. What on earth happened?!

      @Ioannis: I got your message earlier and I apologize again for this mistake.

    11. Ioannis Pachnis on

      I received the book yesterday, however, it has received a lot of damage due to the poor packaging. Sending a hardcover book only in a plain jiffy bag without any protection and expecting to arrive in 1 piece really surpasses me! It should have been sent in a cardboard envelope. Or at least bubble wrapped or wrapped with 2 pieces of cardboard and then placed in the jiffy bag. I am very disappointed... both the front, back, and the corners of my book have dents! I pledged to receive a pristine book... not a damaged one...

      @Sébastien: The link works fine on my end. It doesn't display right away though as it is a big file.

    13. Sébastien Clavet on

      Hello Antoine! I can't download the PDF. Is the link still active ? Thanks a lot !

    14. Antoine Clerc-Renaud 2-time creator on

      @ Stuart Clements: hardcover for the backers

    15. Antoine Clerc-Renaud 2-time creator on

      @ Stuart Clements: it's a hardcover one for the backers.

    16. Stuart Clements on

      Just curious... I was under the impression that this was a hard cover book... Are backers getting hardcover or softcover?

    17. Antoine Clerc-Renaud 2-time creator on

      @ Mika Myllyvaara: I'm really sorry about that. I hope you'll enjoy the book :)

      Book arrived yesterday. It look great but some damages at book cover. It should be backed better when shipping.

      @Sébastien Clavet: Bonjour Sébastien, la version française comportera quelques paragraphes de plus concernant l'arrivée de la ColecoVision en France et son "impact" au Québec. Ce sont pour l'instant les seuls changements prévus mais je vous tiens au courant s'il y en a d'autres.

    21. Sébastien Clavet on

      Bonjour! Est-ce qu'il y a une différence entre la version française et anglaise ? Merci!

      Bonjour Antoine, avez-vous des informations à propos du développement de l'édition française?

    25. Antoine Clerc-Renaud 2-time creator on

      @Nick: I'm writing an update that will be published over the week end but so far I'm looking to send the books as soon as I receive them by the end of the month. Cheers!

      Any word on when the book will be sent?

    27. Missing avatar

      Mika Myllyvaara on

      Is book soft or hardback? I can only find hardback version.

    28. Missing avatar

      Mika Myllyvaara on

      At least I wanted hardback.

    29. Missing avatar

      Mika Myllyvaara on

      I just got Kickstarter survey response needed. It says that early backer I get paperback version. I understand my book is hardback?

    30. Antoine Clerc-Renaud 2-time creator on

      @Antonino: Sorry about that. I'm checking that with Chris and I'm writing you a private message. Thank you for your patience.

    31. Antonino Spagnuolo on

      Hi, Antoine,

      Antonino from Italy. I received the Ocean and US Gold books from my tier last thursday, but only the US Gold book is signed by Chris. The Ocean book has no sign on it.

    32. Antoine Clerc-Renaud 2-time creator on

      @Nick: I'm very sorry to hear that. I'm speaking with Chris right now as all of his books were directly sent by himself from the UK. I'll get back to you with a solution. Thanks for your patience.

      Not too impressed. My copy of the Ocean book arrived today, but no postage had been paid for or put on it, so it cost me £3 to retrieve it. Not cool, guys.

    34. Antoine Clerc-Renaud 2-time creator on

      @Mika: Yes! We did a Live Q&A Session on Saturday that you can watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch…
      Next one will be in February, so send us any question you might have!

    35. Antoine Clerc-Renaud 2-time creator on

      @Casper: Let me check and I'm sending you a message.

      I have changed from the $45 tier to the $80 tier but it still shows as I'm backing the $45 tier, unless I'm clicking I'm "manage pledge", then it shows up as the (correct) $80 tier.

      @creator, are you able to check on your side what pledge level I am on? This is the first time this has happened to me.

    37. Antoine Clerc-Renaud 2-time creator on

      @Paul: Yes! You'll definitely have the PDF version of the book :)

      I purchased the Complete Video Game Collector bundle - just wondering if this bundle also comes with the PDF version of the book?

    39. Antoine Clerc-Renaud 2-time creator on

      @Mika: A lot! We really chose to emphasize on the video game years of the company even though it lasted for less time than the other departments.
      Specifically about the ColecoVision, there will be a list of all games (homebrew included). We might do some reviews but we would like to do it only in a relevant way :)
      Anyway, if you like ColecoVision, you made the right choice supporting us and that will be a great read!

      Mika Myllyvaara on

      Cool. Now let's get that 15 000$ so everyone can play game :-)

      @Borge Nost - In my interview with Antoine, I talked about the Super Action controller for the Colecovision at length (hint: I worked on it and actually didn't like it). I don't know if we went into details on the high speed data drives, but I can fill in missing details if he has more questions.

      @ Sylvain Rousseau: Merci !
