Re: OUM disk

Sectmap never worked IIRC. The update didn't work for me.

Re: More Oric stuff on YouTube

Some guy called "RobC" keeps encouraging that John Cage guy to make videos about Oric games. You'd think if you were going to video yourself playing games that you'd have some basic ability to play games - but not the Youtubers. Why bother learning about the computer or the game before playing? No, ...

Re: OUM disk

OUM disks should be accompanied by some description which should let you know how to load things. CLOAD is cassette loading instruction. If you want to know DOS commands find the Sedoric manual. Basic commands are LOAD"filename" - but note the file extension. Files by default have a.COM extension bu...

Re: Diagnostic cartridges?

No, it's designed for Oric-1/ Atmos.

Mike Brown is the guy to ask about this.
The information is on his site.

I think LED2 is indicating a RAM failure.

Re: I’ve done it again !

I think it's on one of the OUM disks. There's a cheat version as well.

Re: Sedoric rights

Dr Ray did Sedoric 1.7 through to 2.1. In those days it was shareware and anyone that registered got updates. Sedoric used to be sent out with a cassette insert for Krillys to validate it being on the disk. Registered users got the manual by Jon Haworth and Allan Whitaker (who ran Oric Enthusiasts &...

I guess it will be at some point but I'll have to get the paperwork scanned.

Re: Is BD-DOS lost to time?

I have a ByteDrive. Actually a pair with documentation. I did bid on that manual shown above but got outbid. I have a lot of information to go through but havent' had the time to even unpack the ByteDrives. I might just sell them on as I'm not getting the opportunity to look at it properly and don't...

Re: missing titles

There are various football management games. Football Manager, The Boss, European Cup, Soccer Manager, League Soccer, League Champions. Most of these are available. A couple of them are on the Rhetoric disks. Alistair Way did an animated football game. Oddly I can't find a French football game. You'...

Re: missing titles

Technically speaking, Oric titles are covered by copyright. I think it lasts 70 years now - after the death of the author. A lot of authors have given permission for titles to be available now online. Other authors weren't named so it's impossible to contact them and some can't be traced due to them...

Re: List of official Oric software & games

My list has been up for years, pre-dating Oric.org. So there's a few mistakes and omissions but it can be updated if you load it into your own database. The Csv version is probably best for this. I used to have MS Works so used that to generate these files - but that won't load on my current Windows...

Re: eBay game prices

Manic Miner wasn't that rare, but the problem is everybody seem to want it - even people that don't have an Oric. Some of the rare games had few sold so they have become expensive, as Dbug says. They often aren't good. It's hard to put a price on things with the crazy Ebay prices. I know some people...
