Re: New source code repository on OSDN.net

Thanks, @ Dbug ! The new svn works fine for me. :) Here is some info which probably may be useful for other users: I was unable to relocate my local copy to the new URL using the standard command: svn relocate http://miniserve.defence-force.org/svn http://svn.osdn.net/svnroot/oricsdk/ so I've checke...

Re: IJK-egopad the joypad for Oric by [raxiss]

... the second fire button could be detected with D5 input of the printer port. Indeed! In IJK-* the D5 is used only for detection of the joystick which normally happens just once at the start of the game. But after quick research I abandon this idea because I didn't found games which require two f...

... I even tried to setup a microdisc.
It seams Microdisc + DSK is recently broken. Tried the 'standard' Sedoric 3.0 image. If I convert the same DSK to HFE it boots OK. Jasmin+DSK and BD-500+DSK work just fine.

Re: Oric extender - a basis for DIY projects and experiments

Cool, so basically using this as a reference design, it's possible to make cards that can use address spaces that don't overlap on each other and can then run alongside properly? Hmmm, yes, but I didn't even thought about such possibility :). For sure there should be added one more 34-pin connector...

Re: IJK-egopad the joypad for Oric by [raxiss]

I was wondering about something... @ kenneth explained already most problems correctly and some more details from me: Screenshot_20200726_212455.png On left is the Atari pinout as given in Wiki but in most wide spread joysticks as mine (in the middle) GunShot all 3 buttons are short connected inter...

Oric extender - a basis for DIY projects and experiments

Hi all, I want to share this small HW project - Oric extender which I've created recently: 20200726_181038.jpg It includes full buffering for address bus, data bus, proper connection for all control signals and a configurable address decoder for the range $300...$3FF in 'slices' of 16 bytes. Its pri...

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

@ jbperin : Attached are all Oric related ROM files for Clock Signal (together with a txt file which explains 'who's'who') ;). Else, @ ThomH : great work! I like the command line options which exclusively set the Oric and periphery type. BTW, the DSK emulation seams to be broken recently. clk-roms-p...

Re: IJK-egopad the joypad for Oric by [raxiss]

Question: What happened if you take two Orics, each with a IJK Egoist interface, and you connect both to the joypad, one on each connector :) Would that work, or would that crash and burn horribly? This is crazy but It will work ! :) because both controllers connect each other with their inputs whi...

Re: IJK-egopad the joypad for Oric by [raxiss]

It's small but with lot of useful features: - the up-down actions can be swapped with the small switch on the bottom side: 20200724_001737.jpg - reversible - for left and right hand gamers - simply rotate it and play! IJK-egopad-reversible.jpg - it's created for Oric but actually it will be compatib...

Re: IJK-egopad the joypad for Oric by [raxiss]

Hello all!
After creating the IJK-egoist interface I decide to create a small but really nice addition to it - the IJK-egopad!

Here is it with an Atmos:

Re: Oricutron on Ubuntu

Yep, this is another known issue with the visual keyboard, but because it's not my contribution I'll need much more time to fix it. IMHO, the root of the problem is somewhere in the code for new allocation (or reallocation) of the main SDL surface when switching on/off the visual keyboard. EDIT: The...
