Re: IOUG

I guess the options are to blur such information - how big a job would that be? I guess there are two issues: - This require some PDF editing tool with the ability to modify / clear the content. - One need to know what exactly should be moved: If we speak of phone numbers and addresses, only for in...

Re: OSDK bugs

By the way, are there now light weight bug/issue tracking systems which could be used for the OSDK? I agree that a full fledged system would be overkill but on the other hand, having to send emails instead of going to a well know web page with proper editing/linking/referencing tools also reduces m...

Re: IOUG

I have IOUG #1 to #23, plus a supplement issue with programs. The main issue was that there are some small announces in the magazines, with people selling or buying stuff, with their names and addresses. The question is to know if that's actually a problem, considering that technically that was publ...

Re: Oric-1 RGB to SCART - pin 8?

Does the schematic split the Horizontal and Vertical parts of the signal?
Maybe the screen is confused because the Sync pin contains both the HSync and VSync signals?

Re: TapOric - android TAP player for Oric

You know that many mobile phones are neither "mono" or "stereo" but have at least 4 connectors, so they can have microphone and remote?

You can find some cable adapters that convert mobile jacks to standard stereo, I used that with one of my headsets which did not work on my android device.

Re: Oric Speech Synthesizer + Cumulus/Microdisk

Damn, if they are so easy to interface on the printer port, why the heck did they decide to built the two I had on the main expansion bus?

I see that Jede had fun with the VTR/Mageco:


Could probably ask if his is on the parallel port or expansion bus

Re: Oric Speech Synthesizer + Cumulus/Microdisk

Annoyingly I seem to only find white or green connectors.
I want black ones to go with my black flat cable :p

Look is important!

Re: Oric Speech Synthesizer + Cumulus/Microdisk

Yes, typo indeed. That being said, I opened both boxes, and I can confirm that my TechniMusic had a MEA8000 and spoke without a British accent. I recorded this demo song with it some years ago: http://defence-force.org/download/clair_de_la_lune.mp3 And this Mageco, with French manual and in a French...

Oric Speech Synthesizer + Cumulus/Microdisk

A few years ago, I had a TechniMusic speech synthesizer (the MEA8000 based one, that speaks with a French accent), which unfortunately did not do any advanced address decoding, so it was pretty much impossible to use with any other hardware... like for example a Microdisc or Cumulus. periphoric.jpg ...

Re: OSDK feature request - add OSDKMACHINE env variable to set target machine for execution

I added issues #30 and #31 on the OSDK page: http://www.osdk.org/index.php?page=issues It's a well known issue, been discussed with Jede when he was working on his Orix Telestrat project. Basically, there are multiple approaches, they all take time, and they all have drawbacks: - Compile time select...

Re: Oric-1 RGB to SCART - pin 8?

This black one is available in multiple places with slightly different variants, I do have one (from Ali Express) and it did display the Oric picture without any problem. I had another one of a different type (the rectangular curvy one with a light blue stripe under the name), and that one did not w...

Re: IOUG

Welcome, I guess if you have been published, you are a published Oric author :) One remark though: Would you mind removing the color and reduce the font size for the text in the signature? Basically I don't mind people having small text at the bottom, but on threads were people comment multiple time...

That being said, Dbug's recording doesn't load here. Bad luck or could Orpheus have recorded their tapes really badly?
I assume that you only kept the right audio track?
