Re: HRC in the works

Ah, that's a neat trick. Maybe even something that could be used for a mini-game .. ?

Status of OricExos?

Hey, I unpacked my OricExos last night and was wondering about the status of the project .. I should probably set it up and get it running. *iss*: Have their been many hardware tweaks since you sent me my boards? I'd quite like to boot the system up and start doing something with Orix .. but I've be...

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

Desktop plotters were a thing in the 80's. I dunno what they're like now ..

Re: Pictoric (was: New conversion algorithm)

Really nice! The only thing I don't like about this project is that there isn't a GIT Repo for it yet .. ;)

Re: Very simple "art" demo ..

Thanks for making such a great tool (easy to use) for the Oric! It motivated me to push some pixels .. ;)

Very simple "art" demo ..

.. called "INVASION.DSK", currently on display in a static installation here in Vienna, at the Villa Schapira: http://w1xer.at/invasion.dsk I made this to run on a real ATMOS for the duration of the exhibit. I used the recent "oric_test5.lua" tool from sam to produce the images and form a basic pict...

Re: Oricutron and window size/scale

It shouldn't be too difficult to do letterbox scaling, at least on the SDL front-end, so that one could scale the window to whatever and still maintain aspect ratio .. on the GL front-end, I think you can already do this - if you are a dev, this means you can clone the Oricutron repo, build for GL o...

Re: New conversion algorithm

I'm so glad you did this project in Lua, its my favourite of all languages.. This afternoon I'm sitting down to use it to build a small art installation which utilises an Atmos I've recovered. Can I perhaps assist with the repository duties? Only thing you have to do is name the project, and I'll se...

Re: Oriclopedia: Tansoft

As I remember it (I was tuned in), the Atmos was done because: 1) The Oric-1 keyboard was widely panned as crap. (* - I didn't care, I wrote so much text on it, I kind of enjoy using it these days, especially after MacBook Pro hell..) 2) Indeed, a hardware fix was needed to enable ROMDIS. Oh how I l...

Re: Oric Games Trade

For the record, I have nothing to swap. :( I'm trying to build a collection by taking whatever spares you have left - and I'm quite fine with paying for them. Just tell me what you've got left over to help me start my collection and what you want for them.
