I'm leaving Sunday for a few days in the family, hopefully the server will behave, if not, just enjoy the winter time until it gets back online :)

Nice rig DBug! I have a similar TV too, although mine doesn't work .. I guess I'm going to (yet again) go off and learn a few things or two from you .. ;)

@ibisum: Similar, as "Brionvega" or "Retro/vintage red and black" tv? What is the problem with it?

@iss/rax, maybe you could submit your christmas production to the Reddit Christmas Music contest:


I saw that contest when I posted my original photo on the RetroBattleStations (

EDIT: Did not realize that the forum expended these links automatically Oo

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 opened to an additional option" 1.3i
- understanding why the slow speed signal generated by the new (unreleased because of that!) version of TAP2WAV works so randomly
- finishing the new compression method for HRC
- writing a few articles, discovering the new online CEO Mag (didn't have time really so far)
- fixing the cartridge problems so I can start again my Telestrats
- keep transferring tapes to TAP, still have some recordings of problematic tapes from Steve, and tons to do in my collection
- I'd also love to find a way to read old disks apparently not working anymore. They hold a few unknown software, and original files from l'Oric à Nu book. Kryoflux?
- being back on my faster CSAVE routine project (something like 3 times faster)

Additional possibilities:
- maybe managing Sedoric DSK files with HRC (very unlikely)
- I'd like to start working on some port of Mercenary or Damocles, would it be in 2D. But I'm confident in the fact that I'll never have time for this ;)
