Re: Bocco's adventures

Rax: are you playing on an emulator?
What springs to mind in such problems is a variable that hasn't been initialized, and whose value depends on the emulator's state at start. Dom, did you try changing the RAM pattern at start with Euphoric?

Re: Sedoric's TAKE command, help required...

From Sedoric à nu , here is the code where the amount of pages/bytes is calculated for the command MOVE in Sedoric 3. I'm too tired to check if it's correct or not, especially if a SEC isn't missing. I'll let you guys do ;) With #1000 and #1100 if I'm not mistaken, according to the command doc, we s...

What is missing so far is direct support of Oric DSK format, but as I said this will be changed soon. :)
Good news!
See how lost I was, I thought that Zaxon's Cumana+Gotek drive was directly dealing with DSK files.

Re: Gotek USB floppy emulator

Is must say that, not using it much, I'm totally lost with HxC / Gotek; SD / USB versions; the firmwares; HFE or DSK compatibility; write ability, ... I tried to find somewhere a kind of table, describing such information for each hardware, only to find that it seems that FlashFloppy is apparently u...

Re: Oriclopedia: A series of videos on all things Oric

There have been several Nova 64 for sale on Ebay the past few years, staying there for a while.
I guess most Oric users assumed there was no real difference with the actual Atmos, apart from the logo.

So it will be interesting to see your investigations results ;)

Is the button designed to select the .DSK floppy on the USB key?

Re: Different tape input sound volume

I have no idea where it comes from in the 1st place, but I'd say a French one, yes. No modulator as you said, and self-powered SCART through the DIN plug.
Still, it could have been modified by a hardware magician, too.

Anyone aware of specific details that could answer this question for sure?

Re: Sedoric 'utility' wanted...

I don't have enough disk practice to know the tools but I seem to recall I've seen such tools before.

Beware though, that such utilites should not be used with Sedoric 4 - their compatibility should be studied with the new disk system (can't recall the details but some could mess the disk).

Re: Season greetings!

Sounds interesting... Well, long ago I interviewed Andrew Moore. I then learnt that he an a friend ported DPTLQ onto Amiga. He didn't have anything left of it but I eventually got in touch with this friend, that sent me sources disks. I made ADF files of them. I'm no C expert, and even less Amiga p...

If:
1- you enjoy programming on Amiga

Re: Season greetings!

Okay, what are your predictions in 2020 as personal realizations for our Orics? (software, hardware, site, club management, whatever!) For me, priority: - understanding what's wrong with the latest Novalight 1.3, so I know if I release a last "classical but 10% faster" 1.3h, or a new "re-written and...
