Re: Gotel USB floppy emulator

I know people who use the Gotek with the FlashFloppy or HxC firmware with their Microdisc controllers and they work perectly. Oric's dsk format is not supported yet, so you need to convert it to HxC format, but that is all. You can get a Gotek flashed with the correct firmware and a nice Oled screen...

Re: re cumulus

Yes, of course. And that will rock! I was just illustrating my point that there were different approaches and that there was nothing done, partially due to that.

Re: re cumulus

I am not really so interested in managing the cumulus from the Oric. It would be indeed nice, but also requires deeper changes. See? Different interests also stopped the joint efforts :wink: I proposed something very simple from the user point of view: the three right buttons to navigate up/down/sel...

Re: re cumulus

There was an attempt. Long discussions, many ideas.. Zero results. I started modifying the firmware to support old SD cards, and got a partial success, but nothing else. I really think the UI should be redesigned. I proposed something simple just to make it easier to use, but never worked on it... T...

Re: re microdisc floppy controller board

Hi jdavis6809! I dont use an HxC with my Oric, but other users do, so they will be more helpful. In any case, we know this setup should work. A couple of things that could be of importance, are you using an original Microdisc board? Are you confident it works ok? Are you connecting it to the Oric us...

Re: California Devices Inc and the HCS10017

To be honest I was praying for something weirder and more useful, such as a way to change the starting address of the screen data :twisted: (almost there) or some mad way of inhibiting the attribute thing altogether and get a 320x200 monochrome display (yeah, nothing even near that). Nah, I did not ...

Re: California Devices Inc and the HCS10017

This is exciting. Incredibly exciting. I can't express how exciting.

I am going to read the pdf and see what's in there. But this is an incredible achievement for the Oric community.

Please tell Mike how thankful we are and that it would be incredible to see him around this forum.

Re: fgets ? how to ?

I think f* functions are not in the library (there is no file or stream support at all).

There was a gets and you can easily implement a secure string input function in c or asm easily.

I may even have one somewhere...

Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

That would be a great idea, Dbug. I can tell the OSDK is great and can be used with any tools of your choice. I am using Notepad++ with syntax coloring for 6502 asm and C and project (multiple files) handling, but I also used Visual Studio in the past. In both cases I had/have hotkeys to build and l...

Re: SedOric-3 and INIT command

Very nice configuration! Does the bug also happen with older versions of Sedoric?
