Re: Booting a disk in Telestrat mode using Oricutron?

Press O for instructions then go to Google and type free translate. You'll get a box where you can type in the French and it'll translate it for you - so long as you don't type too much.

I don't know this game at all.

Re: Booting a disk in Telestrat mode using Oricutron?

As usual right-click to get the menu. Click on Insert disk 0 or 1. Navigate to the folder as the default folder is teledisks.

I can't get the Telestrat to work. It crashes with an Atmos disk. It doesn't load up the Glaces disk. Reset doesn't work.

Re: Le Palais des Glaces

There's a Dsk image in the Gamebase files (in the P folder). I've never come across this game - does anyone know where it came from??? Anyway the problem spotted by David Hall (on the facebook page) is that it doesn't work. I've had a look and tried to see if I can do anything but it's got me stumpe...

Re: John Gage reviews Damsel In Distress!

Seriously, life is too short to get wound up over someone's reviews. They aren't reviews. They demonstrate a complete lack of knowledge of what he's looking at. He can't be bothered to do any research. He doesn't know what an Oric is. He just fumbles around and let's you know whether he likes the e...

Re: Sell me a data recorder! Price no object!

Well, we'll have to see what's available.
I don't want to be bidding against Baz for one.

Re: John Gage reviews Damsel In Distress!

It's kind of frustrating to see him keep going to the menu at the bottom instead of using 0-9 for the quick actions :-/ 6 out of 10 without even testing a single puzzle, really people should not grade games they don't even play. He can't play. He's utterly useless at playing games. It was painful w...

Re: Sell me a data recorder! Price no object!

Are you still wanting a cassette player? I could get hold of one and post it.

(We're able to get couriers to come and collect stuff. )

I think Baz had some cassette recorders. You might find him via the World of Oric pages.

Re: Forgotten software

Ah yes, it works with Oric-1 hardware - but you just get the black screen with the default Atmos setting.

It seems a bit buggy. Some doors have me coming out in the middle of a wall and one sent me to the middle of the outer boundary.

Has anyone got the original listing so we can proof read it?

Maybe you should try reviewing some games, Rob. I think you'd do a better job.

Re: Forgotten software

It's a BASIC prog so you can easily Break in to it and have a look. Line 36 is INK 0 I'm not sure how this is supposed to work? It appears to show only some of the screen at a time. I'm not sure if that is what it's supposed to be like?? But if you use CTRL C at the start to Break into the prog and ...

Re: More Oric stuff on YouTube

Gosh you can learn something from these annoying guys that keep saying 'sixty-five 02'. Never heard the keyboard called a 'chiclet' keyboard before. That bit is legit at least. Saying the Oric has 6 x 1 graphics cells and less colour clash is not so clever.
