Re: FebrORIC?

I love the idea... giving oric visibility is always great!
But we should contact these people that made DOScember too. I know one :)

Great! A new version... As soon as I get some free time I will check building something :)

Thanks Dbug!

Re: OPEL Software for the Oric

I've just read your thread, Dbug... so we did not have an OPEL driver and you are about to get one by reverse engineering??? That is super nice!

Re: Oricutron 1.0 (EDIT: Now 1.2)

Ahem... maybe you can also have a look at IJK emulation? You know it does not behave like a real Oric.. :)

Re: IJK interface diagrams.

Nice! :)

Maybe time to start making an IJK-patched/compatible games compilation?

Re: CEO Meet Christmas 2020

I missed it. Completely forgot until later than 22. Even so, I was about to join in case I could say hello, but had to do other things... ah

I really wanted to attend... :(

Re: lda simplification of relative y index value ?

Not sure what you mean. lda(zpadd),y-3 does not exist as an asm instruction and it is not standard. It would probably create ambiguity (what is the value of y after that instruction?) or about the code to create (y-20 would create 20 dey instructions, a loop, or maybe a pha:tya:sec:sbc #20:tay:pla?)...

Re: The Prisoner / El Prisionero

I cannot express how great I think it is to see so many new developments for the Oric lately. Thank you Bieno, for supporting this little machine. I know it is not something easy. I only helped to get a working tap file out of Oricutron running The Quill (which is also not easy), and converted the l...

Re: Philips D6260 K7 deck bulk repair

The first time a French speaking colleague sent me an email ending (literally) in "I'll have a look at it this we", I answered back asking if he sent it by mistake before having finished writing it... Never in my life saw "weekend" abbreviated as "we". And never a sentence ending without a full stop...

Re: What about creating game compilations?

I like the idea of a "Defence-Force Compilation of Greatest Adventures vol. 1" too :) ! We already have a good initial list here. I think Dbug is right about the 3" disks, but we can come up with a distribution which might include: - Disk image for a single 720 floppy - 2 Disk images for 360 floppie...

Re: is it possible to convert Knight Lore to Oric ?

A port of Knight Lore should be possible indeed. I still don't know how the programmers approached some of the problems I faced, but I am quite sure they simply ignored some inconsistencies to keep it running as fast as possible. The biggest problem in my opinion, is the graphics. I am quite sure I ...

Re: Upcoming brand-new Oric text adventure

I must say that it is Fabrice Frances the one who deserves credit for this version of pinforic :) And I can confirm it works in Oricutron too. It was a kind of a mess of versions and emails which created all this confusion.

Enjoy!

Re: What about creating game compilations?

I think that the collection should contain only tape games - as I said disk programs have their own disk. I think some Twilighte titles need disk, such as Magnetix. Not sure for Zip&Zap, but quite sure for pulsoids. My compilation: Damsel in distress (there is a cracked version, not sure why, but mu...
