Just wanted to mention that the links on the competition page seem to be broken.

Re: OricExos - making the impossible

It is a fair point: with the ULA reverse engineered, someone clever should get on the FPGA wagon and give us a clone we can demolish, or so. That'd be really, really nice in fact and I agree with you 100%. But to answer your first point, I have a collection of Oric's (8x Atmos, 2x Oric-1, 1x Telestr...

Re: OricExos - making the impossible

Indeed, great work! I'm thinking this new PCB you've designed might make it moderately easier for some of us to build our own OricExos's? Apart from the de-soldering of the ULA, I suppose ..

Re: Port Crazee Rider?

That does look pretty good .. I wonder what the performance would be like with a bit more gameplay mechanics .. and I still don't understand how the lines are able to be so colourful .. but I guess I should read the code. ;). Definitely inspiring!

Re: Port Crazee Rider?

See, this is the fascinating part .. unrolling all of these plots down to character arrays for blitting .. I definitely need to learn how to do this.

Re: Port Crazee Rider?

My interest is in how the scrolling was done so rapidly .. I'm working on an app for Oric which requires this kind of smooth scrolling (though for different purposes) and so going through all these examples, I'm trying to grok what's going on .. these scroll routines are fascinating.

Re: Full Telestrat in Ebay

So tempting, just for the Microdrive alone .. but I should probably just get my own Telestrat working before I go shopping for others on EBay ..

Re: Port Crazee Rider?

Hmm... I kind of feel that 3D Fongus is a kind of a 'better' example of this kind of game, given that it has a lot more action going on .. gotta love those rhino's, LOL ..

Port Crazee Rider?

What do guys think about the idea of porting Crazee Rider to the Oric:

.. too difficult, not worth it? Better to re-write?

Re: OricExos - making the impossible

Looks amazing! As usual, I've been thinking about this for a few minutes and wondering at all the possibilities .. do you think it might be possible to make a 'mode' for the Exos whereby you can play a normal game, attribute-clash and all, on one Oric, while another Oric is dedicated to the task of ...

Yes, its indeed looking like a performing beast. I think of the effort to build my own Exos, with every update ..
