Take a look here :wink: http://mercenarysite.free.fr/oric/mushroom_gl.jpg The version with the Atmos sticker does run on Atmos! It's amazing to discover how many verions of the same game were released. PSS has sometimes games that have been released in (at least) 4 or 5 different versions (includin...

[quote="Antiriad2097"] I know I had Mushroom Mania fairly early, but I'm not sure if my copy predates the Atmos. I think it does but I'll need to check that one. /quote] As far as I'm aware there wasn't an Atmos version. It was only the clever guys at CEO(?) that converted it to disk and made it Atm...

They were disk compilations, weren't they? If they were available for everyone to buy, i.e not just subscribers then I guess you could include them - it's about the same as the Oric Attributes from Oric Computing magazine, but really commercial titles tends to refer to anything you'd find sold in sh...

It's not sold as a piece of software, it's sold as a book, so no, book listings don't count as commercial software releases.

What "commercially released" means anyway? Would OUM or CEO games be included in them? Would magazines that sold on tape or disk the games they published as listings be included? Would individuals that sold their programs at small scale be included? Pretty complicated! Commercial releases are those...

The OP was wanting a list of all software titles. The way it is now with pictures etc it takes ages to work through everything, so if you just want a list of all titles it isn't very convenient. Also everything is mixed together so I'm not sure how the commercial titles could be separated(?)

software list

I think Oric.org has become difficult to view, the way it is laid out.

For the database on which oric.org was based look at the list(s) on my website. www.48katmos.freeuk.com

Could you also check the address book for someone by the name of Jean-Claude Talar?
The CEO are the people that may be able to help with that.

Hello Steve, Would it be possible for you to put me in touch with Jean Boileau, as well as the contact at Severn? What is he CEO of? (It would make him easier to track down.) Would it also be possible for you to scan in the interview from Théoric? Thank you for your assistance, Matt. I'll need to d...

Re: Severn Software

Does anyone have any contacts who used to work for Severn Software? I am writing a book about the vintage James Bond games and I see that 'Severn' developed an ORIC version of 'A View to a Kill.' Does anyone know how I might be able to get in touch with the programmers behind this port? Does anyone...

Then, L'Oric a nu is only a ROM disassembly or has more things about Oric hardware?. I didn't reply to this as I don't have the book. I believe the bulk is the disassembly but I think it has some more details. I'm not sure what else though, so I hope someone else can reply to give the details. It i...

Scanning old fanzines

As some have said it'd be good to scan some of the old fanzines I thought I'd give it a go today. I have some very rare Oric publications. Some of these were printed on Oric plotters and then photocopied for the masses. They look OK but trying to scan them is tough. Greyscale produces a nice readabl...
