Re: Oric logo and trademark

I did some tests for the logo: I started with a 1200 dpi scan of the large logo I had on my Tansoft box: http://defence-force.org/download/oric/OricLogoScan1200dpiRaw.png from that scan, I did some cleanup and shaping, which resulted into that: http://defence-force.org/download/oric/OricLogoScan1200...

Re: Universal tracker

I second that! a C player would be easy to improve once it has been compiled to 6502 assembly language. Out of curiosity, just how big is this Z80 player? Does it badly require instructions specific to the Z80? It's not that big, basically you have a simple header that defines how many YM chips the...

Re: Universal tracker

That's too bad, but I understand! Maybe another 6502 coder can convert one of the Z80 player? I can of course help about how the player works (plus, their formats are fully documented), but I know nothing of 6502... Something which really could help (on all platforms), would be to have a fully docu...

Re: Oric logo and trademark

About recreating the logo, Dbug, I already made an effort and the result is here http://forum.defence-force.org/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1172&hilit=Oric+logo&start=15#p11961 It is the closest to the original that I could manage, but any improvement would be great! Yours is not bad, but it was made from...

Re: OricExos - making the impossible

I downloaded the emulator and played a bit with your demos. Two things I'm wondering about: - It looks like the hard reset (F4) does not reset the three slave machines, so you get some fancy multiprocessing happening with the tesseract demo continuing to move in the background, overlaid on whatever ...

Re: A possible software alternative to Vsync?

If somebody can come up with a clean, minimal example, I guess we could add it to the Sample folder of the OSDK.
Basically a reference implementation of the Software VSync

Re: Oric logo and trademark

It's interesting what results a search for 'Oric Logo' throw up. https://www.google.com/search?q=oric+logo&tbm=isch&source=univ&client=firefox-b-d&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj37Z6v9PjhAhVzShUIHcTLCR8QsAR6BAgHEAE&biw=1504&bih=911 A actually compared my Oric logo (the one I used on the 30th year birthday, which...

Re: Oric logo and trademark

I doubt the logo is the problem... but imagine they bundle an emulator with some list of games they get the rights of, and sell that as an Android/iOS bundle called NewOric or something. Licence wise, can any of the actual good emulators (Euphoric, Oricutron, Clock, ...) be used in a commercial pro...

Re: Universal tracker

I did start working on the player last year, but I did not really go anywhere - mostly because by Z80 knowledge is inexistant and by lack of time.

If somebody else was willing to make a quick and dirty port, that would be a good start, we can spend a bit of time optimizing it after.

they also have registered logo for Jet Set Radio and Manic Miner which still clearly owned by its author and editor.
You mean "Jet Set Willy" I guess.
If it's Jet Set Radio, that would be cool, because then we could unleash the wrath of Sega on them :)

Maybe the version number should be changed, or is it still 1.2 :) ?

Re: OSDK 1.14 RC

Just downloaded the 1.14RC2 and it still exhibits the issue. The minimum program which reproduces it: #include <time.h> void main() { unsigned long clockValue; clockValue = clock(); (...) } The comments seem to assume that clockValue contains 1, so maybe a minimum program would not call "clock()" b...
