Re: IJK-egoist new joystick interface by [raxiss]

Not that I want to promote my work, but if you have a PC that can read WAV files and the suitable cable to link it to the Oric, converting TAP to WAV files does the trick. TAP2WAV (standard speed), TAP2F16 (a bit faster), TAP2CD ( much faster), Novalight (a bit faster than TAP2CD). I used Novalight ...

Re: IJK-egoist new joystick interface by [raxiss]

The Erebus looks for the beginning of the Tap file and no longer returns under DOS, all parts must be in the TAP file. Thanks. So I don't get it, ISS's multipart TAP files should work, wouldn't they? (all parts are in a single .TAP file) I mean, there are 3 cases (actually it could be more, but let...

Re: IJK-egoist new joystick interface by [raxiss]

I need a reminder please :)
Would a multipart TAP file work with Erebus if each part was splitted into different TAP files, and loaded with the right name in the CLOAD command?

Re: Cumana Reborn DSK support

Saw this announcement about HxC Floppy Emulator software: https://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?p=410201#p410201 "-> New Writer : Oric DSK images ("MFM_DISK" format)." To be honest having no time to use it I'm completely lost in the galaxy of USB emulators and what software is for, but I suspect...

Re: Oric on VGA monitors

Thanks for the follow-up guys.

My monitor is a DELL P2214H.
Works great with Atari STs, and with some (not all apparently) DB23 => VGA converters for Amiga (one of the two I got sends the monitor to sleep mode, haven't had time to search if it is a known issue).

Just found this:
Sounds interesting, thanks for the link!
I'm curious to hear about the result ;)
That's especially interesting if it works and if the Oric-powered scart can avoid another power supply.

Re: Oric on VGA monitors

No direct wiring but since the Atari ST adapter already does the job, I wondered if it couldn't be used for the oric too.
Not sure how it's done exactly, that would help trying to figure if the pins used on the ST are equivalent to the ones the Oric has.

Re: OPEL Software for the Oric

Off-topic tape names: Yes, I'm transferring the actual tapes in the best possible way, which means keeping the original "loading name" (that's the way I call it). It can be essential as sometimes programs load a second part with instructions like CLOAD"JOYSTICK CONTROL", so if you don't keep that ac...

Re: Oric on VGA monitors

Hi all, I recently bought a second hand 15kHz PC monitor, on which I was able to plug my Atari ST in low resolutions (color!) thanks to the "VGA ADAPTER LOW COST VERSION £12" sold here: https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/store2/ This adapter does not convert 15 => 31 kHz, but that's no problem as the...

Hello
I've one.
I'll scan the cover & tapes to complete
I have already scanned it all, completed by Steve's scans of the docs.
Jede probably has it all.
If you have a FTP or whatever I can send them to you - I really have no time for updates these days :?

Re: CEO Meet Christmas 2020

Also Sy, it was funny to hear you tuning in. Do you have an airplane headset with a keyed mic by any chance? Sure sounded like you were in the air .. ;) Aha, is it because of the mic sound, or the on/off effect that could be a bit late when I start speaking? I do have an on/off button and use it ra...

Re: CEO Meet Christmas 2020

Actually, the on-line meetings allow more people to meet! I'd say about half of the attendees never came at a "physical meeting" in Paris - which doesn't mean they were not actors of the Oric scene of course ;)

Very impressed with the demos.
