Re: Mass storage options for Oric

In my experience, Cumana Reborn is more useful - you can read/write DSK images with it - whereas Erebus is more of a 'fire and forget' option that turns the Oric into a console. My suggestion would be to get Cumana Reborn if you intend to hack on Oric stuff - and Erebus if all you want to do is play...

Re: Pictoric (was: New conversion algorithm)

Ah cool, thanks Sam .. didn't see that in the repo before. This definitely helps me understand some of the complexities of Oric color usage a bit better.

Re: IJK interface diagrams.

HigashiJun, I'd be in on your project, but I've already blown my budget for retro- stuff this month. I would also like to help but I think my time is better spent on the Orix/Twilighte card project, which also has joystick capabilities in the requirements list... so I will watch this project with gr...

Re: How to use MACROS with OSDK

Macro's are processed by a c-pre-processor, which can do the substitutions necessary, but its not clear that the assembler is being made aware of the existence of a c-pre-processor in your example build - or if, indeed, the filename needs to be .c / .h in order to 'trigger' pre-processing.

Re: 8-bit Grubs demo

Control = shoot, next worm is selected after you shoot.

Its a demo though, don't expect too much. I was mostly impressed with the style of landscape/worm interaction ..

8-bit Grubs demo

The aesthetic of the 8-bit Grubs demo (8-Bit Unity SDK), is pretty cool - if you haven't seen it yet, here's the link: http://8bit-unity.com/?wpdmpro=8bit-grubs-oric-2020-05-18 I really like the level of detail in the integrated graphics. It kind of builds on the attribute clash in an interesting wa...

Well, I'd love to have operational joystick on my Orics.

Re: Pictoric (was: New conversion algorithm)

Its all just "Advanced Oric Graphics" techniques, isn't it .. and I mean, AIC seems to have interesting fringe applications among the scrolling/blitting problems. I'd love to have the .TAP files for all of these images, so I can dig into the bytes in a debugger and see for myself how the bits are se...

Re: Pictoric (was: New conversion algorithm)

Just seeing these kinds of pics on an Oric fills me with such delight .. its amazing. All the disappointment at attribute clash in the games of the 80's just melts away and is replaced with inspiration for what can be done next .. well done guys! I wonder .. if we were to make a SuperOric one day ("...
