I have here Oricutron_win64-20181004. Surely has a different keymapping as I simply get no output from some keys and " is at SHIFT+ ', where I have ? in my PC, and it is not following the Oric's keyboard layout either. The config file has this:
Code: Select all
autoload_keyboard_mapping = 'keymap/my_keymap.kma'
I also have Oricutron_win32-20190918 here, which behaves similarly.
I suppose it is difficult to simply use the PC keyboard mapping OR the Oric layout as two simple options?
Both include an oricutron.exe and oricutron-sdl.exe (I guess the latter has sdl as a static library as it is much larger).
I am quite sure some bugs where solved (probably saving data arrays, for instance, maybe the telestrat mode) but I am also quite sure some things did not run as expected (cannot remember what). I have just open the menu (which is black instead of blue, btw) and changed the rendering to software, and it freezed (32 bit version). I did it again, just for testing, and freezed again The option with no static sdl library did not freeze. The Rev number is 5fd606b. Sometimes they seem to get back to life after some seconds.
The same happens in the 64 bit version, which is rev: 07f5eae
In the end I keep them both for whenever I need something that is not working on the usual stable 1.2 version, which is the one I use normally.
Now that I am at it how about solving the tape problems? Oricutron saves only in ort and this does not work at turbo speed. That is quite inconvenient. I had to create a ort2tap hack.
Also now that people have cumana reborn and gotek it might be interesting if Oricutron supported the amstrad CPC EDSK format. It is just a container, albeit more complex than our DSK, but the HxC software is able to convert the oric dsk to edsk (not the other way round) and it is natively supported by the Gotex software and the new MiST, MiSTer and SiDi Oric cores.
