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 ...

I am now an Oric Atmos owner!

Just received my Atmos this last week and had a chance to do my 1st unbox and test video this week. Hope you enjoy... :D

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

Re: New Guy here from USA

Been enjoying watching videos about Oric Atmos. Hopefully you find a boxed working Atmos in your stash. Keep me posted and we can do the deed. I have a nice spot cleaned off on the desk... Actually it gets it own whole desk that will become an Oric only sanctuary. :D TJ Welcome TJ! Have you checked ...

Best Newbie Book for Learning Basic on Oric Atmos?

Hi all.. hoping to buy an Atmos this year... new to the Oric platform... hoping to eventually carry over and develop a small game I made on the Sinclair Spectrum (Invasion of the Cloud People) to the Oric platform. Tell me, what do you feel, beyond the user manual on the Oric Atmos, is the best all ...

Re: New Guy here from USA

I'm an ex-pat, so it counts for less, but that makes at least two of us in the USA. I am located in Northern California... and you? TJ I was in the Bay Area when I first moved over, but nowadays I'm in New York. So on the one hand I sort of miss it during winter, but on the other I enjoy actually h...

Re: New Guy here from USA

Just for the record, why type of things are you actually looking for? If I can find a boxed Atmos that is not super high in price but fair... my hope is to program on it in Basic and try to find a 2nd platform to develop on, as a novice programmer that is. In 2019 I created my 1st game called Invas...

Re: New Guy here from USA

btw, if I do get an Oric Atmos, I will for sure make a series of videos, as a newbie step-by-step, about the platform and my experience, just like I do for the Sinclair and other 8bit platforms I use.

New Guy here from USA

Hi all, thanks for letting me in. I am from USA and the Oric has me intrigued. I did not know much about it until I fell head-over-heals for the Sinclair line of computers about a year ago. As I have been exploring Sinclair this Oric kept popping up so I thought I would explore it more. For those th...
