Re: Erebus Batch November 2019

- the current Erebus version "only" accepts 512 entries on the root of the card I'm wondering if it's possible to have more than 512 if they are divided into subfolders. At the moment my copy of the Oric Gamebase has about 1400 files and takes up about 67Mb .. so the limiting factor would be the ma...

Re: Connecting to a tape recorder in 2019

I kept away from new cassette recorders because I wasn't sure how compatible they'd be in terms of the DIN socket and also needing mono playback. However, my old retro equipment stash includes the recorders that we used back then and I tested and cleaned up one for my Oric and it's doing fine. Ebay ...

If you want you can catalog your tape files with my taptap utility (for windows , and sources for Linux) https://github.com/DJChloe/taptap you can even extract each program from one tap and split it in different .tap files. example : taptap cat c:\yourfolder\mytape.tap if you want to save it in a t...

Poverty Game

My father is a retired geography teacher. He developed this game in the 1970s as a classroom activity and originally pen-and-paper. It's based on farming in India round about that time, from actual case studies and climate data. The class would look up tables on an overhead projector to calculate wh...

Oricutron and window size/scale

Is it possible to scale up the window size for Oricutron? I'm using v1.2 on Windows10, not in fullscreen, software rendering. The window is a tad small for my preference and it'd be great to be able to increase it a little without having to switch to fullscreen. When I use Euphoric, my DOSbox setup ...

Re: List for Microdisc controller + Amplibus, LAST BATCH.

Hello Silicebit,
I know I'm late to this so I understand if you already have too many people on your list, but I'd like to be added if possible. I'm interested in both the controller and amplibus. Thank you so much.

Re: PC-style audio output socket

I ended up deciding to change as little about the insides of the Oric as possible. It'd still be nice to be able to hook it up to speakers at some point but I think I'd choose to make a modified cable for the DIN socket as Mike and Dbug have suggested. Will be an interesting project when I get time :)

Re: cataloguing tapes

Thanks. Yes, it may be from a book, but I'm not sure which one. I think I spotted it in "Games for your Oric" by Peter Shaw. http://www.defence-force.org/computing/oric/library/lib_coding_basic/index.htm That was when I was looking for "M4" game, which is also on the tape listed above. So some (all...

Re: cataloguing tapes

Sausages ! I wonder if that's the text adventure program we've been trying to get working? Please have a look at that and see what it is! Unfortunately it's not a text adventure, it seems to be something along the lines of Snake, or maybe Frogger. I think it might well be a type-in game from a book...
