Re: Oricutron or Euphoric in the browser anyone ?

Yes that's the goal. Once it's stable I hope we can host on this very website one or more Oricutron in the browser with Defence Force games and demos as well. For games, sure, that makes sense: They are interactive. For demos, I think videos are better, proper captures with the CRT scanlines, etc.....

Re: 8bit-Unity version 0.3.5

I've never used an arduino, is it possible to somewhat connect the hub to a PC or a terminal, to output debug logs? Does the implementation supports hot-plug of the mouse, or does that only happen at boot time? I see that in addition to "ps2mouse.cpp" and "ps2mouse.h" you have "PS2Mouse.cppalt" and ...

Re: 8bit-Unity version 0.3.5

Can you give the exact model of yours?

Maybe we should make a list of what works or not, mine does not:
- Logitech M-S69 851841-1000 (two buttons + wheel)

Re: 8bit-Unity version 0.3.5

@ibisum: If you plan on helping 8bit-Dude with the hub firmware, I think a lot of people would be happy if you could managed to make it work with a larger selection of ps/2 mice, like the ones with mouse wheels for example, because right now it's kind of hit and miss :)

Re: 8bit-Unity version 0.3.5

Do you have some examples of IRC networks that do that? I'm mostly used to ircnet and freenode.

Re: 8bit-Unity version 0.3.5

The problem with IRC is that by default you don't get the messages you missed, like if you got disconnected, or you don't have a bouncer, etc... you can't share pictures, I rarely got DDC working so sending and receiving files is a pain. I like IRC, but I would definitely not use that to work betwee...

Re: Wolfenstein / DOOM for Oric : has this been done?

Dbug's ray casting system uses this very smart approach of ray casting which consists in actually shooting a ray until it hits a block. It's not MY ray casting system. It's just my (not very efficient or accurate) implementation of something that has been around for a decade. My first work had been...

Re: Are disk operating systems independent of BASIC?

All you need really is to have a 16KB file on your DSK, then a small loader that loads it in normal RAM, disable interrupts, enable the overlay ram, memcpy to c000-ffff.

Re: 8bit-Unity version 0.3.5

I was thinking about using the sdcard slot to configure, but in insight, the ideal would be to do that from the host machine :)
Would be awesome to be able to fetch the configuration and update it, from the Oric itself.

Re: Need advice on VIA control (PORT A)

So, myself I suck at VIA programming (I also hated the MFP 68901 on the Atari ST), and relied on Twilighte expertise for most of that, so if nobody here can't answer, I guess we will have to ask Fabrice Frances (the Euphoric emulator creator). For what's worth, my Oric Profiler is using the printer ...

Re: 8bit-Unity version 0.3.5

So other people are not surprised: - When the hub tells you that it is restarting, the message is misleading, it means you have to restart it (ie: unplug/plug) - When the wifi part tells you it has updated from 0.2 to 0.3, the display still shows 0.2, so restart it and then it will be properly showi...

Re: 8bit-Unity version 0.3.5

I found the reason for time-outs, the UART buffer between Wifi and Core is overflowing when too many bytes are sent at once, I should be able to figure out something quick. I *think* I also found the reason for resent CHAT messages. Cool :) Will that just require a new version of the game, or also ...

Re: Good documented source code examples on viewing selected part of bigger game map

Cool, glad that it works, congratz for your first Oric assembler code :) (I'm also happy you play with my extensions to BAS2TAP, it was done for my own needs and I'm not sure anyone else tried them) Performance wise, I guess the only simple improvement would be to revert the Y copy and decrement and...

Re: Are disk operating systems independent of BASIC?

I'm pretty sure (but I never checked) it has its own interrupt handler: The cost of switching back to ROM every time would be extremely costly! Basically when you boot a Microdisc/Cumana, it boots on an internal 8 kb eprom which sits on top of the memory range (over both the overlay and rom). This "...
