Re: Oric Kong converted in C, need beta test (and graphist !)

Fun code to read - is the intent of TEMPO1..4 macro's to, at some point, allow the game to play at different tempos? For example, for the door opening sequence, which imho still needs to be much faster .. Another fun thing to tweak, which might be related to a TEMPO change, is the keyboard tempo at ...

Re: re cumulus

Meh, I don't feel like contributing to a project if I have to dig through some obscure path to find things, then manually compare 17 files in different folders to find the differences, when it could be so much simpler with a proper branch compare. Oh no, now I'm doing the "spit the dummy and throw t...

Re: Oric Atmos Boot-Up Query

I have 8 Atmos, an Oric-1 and a Telestrat - and they all behave differently depending on the power supply being used. I've noticed that the lower Amps, the messier the screen on boot up - maybe this is a clue?
