Re: Zorgons Revenge - My Attempt To Play - Video

Awesome info... Now I can blame these bad collision detection instead of my terrible game play. :twisted: :lol: TJ It was my first game, and quite a good one at the time, even when compared to Spectrum games. However, I always found the collision detection terrible. Everywhere. A ball could hit you ...

Re: Forum Categories

Since we had some newcomers recently, please make sure to post in the right forums: Nothing about games in the General section, that goes into games, even if it's a video review of a game, or a question about game manuals, or how to play a game. The cleaner we keep the forum, with titles that make ...

Zorgons Revenge - My Attempt To Play - Video

My next Oric video is up now... and was a fun one to make.
I downloaded my 1st game from oric.org and then used my Erebus to test and play it. It worked great!!!
Hope you enjoy me trying to play but play worse than a grandma Zorgons Revenge!

Re: My Erebus arrived. Unbox & Test Video

Seems you are onto something here. Have one booted twice but... this time I turned on Up Transformer 1st and then once done, plugged in power lead into the Atmos, and both times she booted right away! Good news so far. Maybe an In-Line on/off switch could help me here. TJ Regarding the booting probl...

Re: My Erebus arrived. Unbox & Test Video

As I am using an Up Transformer here in USA, I already have all the power cords connected and brick plugged in and the Up Transformer has an on/off switch. I will try leaving the power cord unplugged from the Atmos this next time and have all powered up before I plug the cord back into the rear of t...

Re: I am now an Oric Atmos owner!

Oh, I didn't realise who you were! I watched your first QL power-on video the other day, in which the lack of a power switch caused you to miss the key moment. I'm at work now so can't watch the Oric video, but my favourite is Don't Press the Letter Q. Yeh, I am that Sinclair nut in USA that makes ...

Re: List of official Oric software & games

The listings on Oric.org are pretty complete, although there are a lot of things in there that collectors won't find anywhere else .. I see the search and listings at the https://www.oric.org/software/ site but is there a downloadable list? Or just a click each A through Z to see stuff. Sorry if it...

List of official Oric software & games

Is there a list of all the official software and games sold by Oric until they went out of business?

Also a list of all known commercial software and games made for the Oric.

Thanks

Re: eBay game prices

I have my 1st Oric on its way to me now. Should see it before end of the month. Once I get that and start saving again, I plan on starting to collect some tapes and games. Having seen the silly prices on eBay, was scared off a bit, since games for the Sinclair Speccy are so cheap, I will see what I ...

Videos on 100% Basic Oric games?

New to Oric... I would like to watch some YouTube videos on games that are 100% made in Basic on Oric.

Any titles I should look for?

Thanks
