I don't know why Marat deleted the older DOS version. I also don't know why he wouldn't host this newer patched version for you.

"If you find a bug, have an idea on the further ColEm improvement, or would like to port ColEm to a new platform, please, let me know."

Unless he's just being disingenuous here, he seems open to patches.

The main problem (obviously) is licensing (both system ROM and games themselves), not to mention the emulator itself ("not commercial", i.e. not "open source" nor "free software" despite his confusing use of "open" and "free" to describe it). I guess he's really afraid of people selling it. Which is odd because (AFAIK) he doesn't own anything. I have no idea if he's a licensee or not (or whether that's even needed in his country or whatever). I'm not a lawyer, but it's a pretty big worry, sadly.

Anyways, a naive web search shows that one company is now producing "ColecoVision Flashback" hardware (plug and play for tv) with 60 games.
