Re: Sedoric 4.0

I have Cumulus, Gotek and Cumana- based drive systems for my Oric fleet, and I really like the ease of use of Gotek, but am also super glad I managed to get a couple of Cumulus' drives .. it means I can use the Goteks' for other machines, such as the ZX Spectrum, C64 and CPC6128 in my collection .. ...

Bad capacitors, or bad transistors somewhere? Time to check for slightly-puffy caps somewhere .. maybe they haven't exploded yet ..

Re: CEO-Mag Christmas gift: John Sinclair interview available

I'd be happy, almost, to learn French well enough to be able to read the CEO. But the trouble is, I'm already doing the multi-lingual thing by being an Australian living in Austria, and therefore struggling with German. But I have wondered if there weren't a bit of hope to be had with auto-translati...

Re: CEO-Mag Christmas gift: John Sinclair interview available

It'd be great to see more CEO articles in English .. my lack of French comprehension has been a reason to not subscribe, but if there were more English translations I'd happily pitch in every month ..

Re: Oriclopedia: A series of videos on all things Oric

Man how I drooled over the Atmos and the Microdrive whenever I saw them in a magazine ..

Nowdays I'm a bit more excited for Cumulus and ORICSD though .. ;)

Pretty amazing that there are still Oric-related hardware projects going on. Probably more now than there ever was ..

Oh, I don't mean to be too critical, sorry .. just saying, if you have your opportunity to engrave your name in it, in red, seems like a worthy place to do it. ;)

Re: Pictoric (was: New conversion algorithm)

These are, without doubt, an astonishing addition to the Oric story. Indeed, if we had been capable of such computation in the 80's, the Oric would've gained a lot more interest. Most of the complaints about the Oric entered around its 'poor attribute clash' graphics - however these pictures demonst...

Re: Sea battle

Awesome game, thanks so much for sharing it! As an avid Oric fan, I simply can't believe we're still getting such great things released for the machine, and your use of AIC really puts the Oric in new light. Well done .. off to waste a few hours playing .. ;) EDIT: Just wanted to say, great intro/ou...

Re: Pulsoids

If I remember correctly, this was the reason he hadn't released a TAP file yet:

>- the game does not run on Oric-1 (Oric.org corrected)

.. I seem to have a foggy memory of him wanting to fix that before he made a general-release TAP ..
