Re: Pinball Wizard

Oh - I thought Pinball Wizard would be different to Macadam Bumper, but it does look basically the same. Macadam Bumper sounds a bit more American to me. So is Accolade the parent company of Ere ? And then it was Infogrames. Did Infogrames buy Accolade or vice versa? A complete guess but I would im...

Re: Copy programs.

I have found 'Private Copy' by Micropuce to be invaluable to me, however I'm not familiar with the software you mentioned so don't know if this what you require.

Re: OASIS development

I'm looking forward to playing this. The Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion point and click games are some of my favourite games of all time. To play a similar game on the Oric will be amazing!

Re: Not another boulder dash clone!

Just noticed a slight error on the title screen; the game was created by Peter Liepa but you've spelt it Lepia! Not important (might be to Peter... :wink: ) but probably worth amending if you ever release an updated version.

Re: Run the Gauntlet

The info provided suggests the game was 'developed' but not released due to Anthony moving over to Micro Projects who programmed some quality C64 software; Thing on a Spring, Monty on the Run etc. I would love to know if 'developed' means actually completed or just a concept. Magazine adverts aren't...

Run the Gauntlet

I've always wondered about the entry on oric.org regarding a mysterious game called 'The Gauntlet' by PSS. I used to own all the PSS games and was baffled by this entry, but finally I have discovered something that gives closure on it's non-existence!! I wonder if there's an incomplete version still...

Re: OASIS development

This looks absolutely amazing! If only we had such talent back in the 80's such as yours Chema, the Oric would have been a resounding success!! :o

Re: Gamebase Oric V3.0

Hi Guys, Just a quick message to say that the Gamebase project is not dead but currently in Limbo. I've just been through a rather unpleasant relationship break-up and have been forced to sell my house. I should be moving within the next four weeks and will hopefully be able to get my life back on t...

Re: FGC company history ?

Wasn't this the same company also named HGC? They changed name from HGC to FGC or vice versa, if I'm remembering them correctly. The H stood for Home, instead of F for Financial. Also released Bucaneer, Fly For Your Life, Maze Rally and others. Or have I just made all that up? My memory is a little...

Re: Gamebase Oric V3.0

I should mention that the problem with Oricutron only occurs when games are launched via Gamebase, probably something to do with the script it uses not changing the default directory that the emulator points to. Loading split file games outside of Gamebase seems to work fine with all the files in on...

Re: Gamebase Oric V3.0

Hi Didier, all the games you listed as incomplete are actually complete, however they are all games with split files. The missing files you are looking for can be found in the following directory:- Gamebase/Oric/Emulators/Oricutron/Tapes For some reason, split file games will only load in Oricutron ...

Re: Gamebase Oric V3.0

Thanks for clearing that up Steve, I'll add all those new games to my Gamebase before the next version. I've just treated myself to an all-singing and dancing Gaming PC which I am spending most of my spare leisure time on now. Once the novelty wears off I will get back to adding games to the Gamebas...

Re: Gamebase Oric V3.0

I know what you mean. I could have cried after typing in the HUGE listing of 'Singerie' that was spread across several Theoric Magazines, only to discover a TAP file for the game a few months later !! :twisted: :(
