Re: IDEs, text editors and extensions used for cross development?

I'm using vim just fine with its builtin asm syntax highlighting, in combination with cscope+vim bindings, which gives a full IDE experience - navigation to global refs, search by call/ref, etc. Only gotcha was adding "set ft=nasm" so that highlighting works with 6502 assembly code, but other than t...

Re: Games like Frelon

I was really surprised with how little attribute clash there is in Frelon, and still don't properly grok how it is achieving such a smooth use of colour - it would have to be one of the oldest games in the Oric archives with the least noticeable attribute clash .. I'd really love to know other examp...

Re: Horizontal HIRES and Text scrolling code needed.

I totally get it that scrolling attributes on the Oric is hard .. I've boned up on AIC and read every bit of assembly I can find on the subject, and yes - it is very complex, with a myriad of approaches out there .. Nevertheless, I'm still working out how to achieve the effect I want .. So, there ar...

Re: Horizontal HIRES and Text scrolling code needed.

Very fascinating technique, I must admit. What I want to do right now is just scroll the top 64 lines of a HIRES screen, plain ol' demo style.. actually I've changed up the 'requirements' a bit too and really its just about applying any kind of effects of a 240x64 line of graphics, which serve as th...

Re: Oric DSK Manager

My knowledge about Sedoric is limited to launching a program, issuing a quit and then the ! Prefix, setting the INIST and (with a lot of effort) formatting disks :lol: This kind of things I read about from time to time keep surprising me :shock: I'm fully enjoying my new adventures in Oric-Land .. ...

Re: bas2tap/tap2dsk bugs

Yeah, thats what I was headed for .. I guess the most productive thing for me to do would be to take the outputs of $OSDK/samples/*/BUILD/ as a first set of test data, and if artefacts from the MacOS build of the tools are produced with the same hash as those on the Windows side, we can settle the i...

Re: Horizontal HIRES and Text scrolling code needed.

Hi @peacer - did you eventually get this working such that you have a generalised method of scrolling HIRES regions? I'd sort of have a use for that myself right now, in case you did ..

bas2tap/tap2dsk bugs

Hi, I've been working on getting the OSDK toolchain building cleanly on MacOS, and going through the tools one by one to start using them for my own Oric hacking purposes... one thing I've noticed is some odd behaviour with bas2tap that I'd like to verify/confirm is expected behaviour: 1. Short BASI...

Games like Frelon

In my quest to discover more about AIC, I've been going through the games archive to discover games where the attribute clash is not so evident, or cleverly masked, or just plain absent due to clever use of AIC .. and I have to say that Frelon is one of those Oric games that makes me forget about th...

Re: OSDK 1.11

Yeah, a private instance of GitLab is pretty easily fired up .. I've no horse in the race, either way, I just prefer Git and have seen its power used very effectively over the decades .. either way though, we've got a Git repo now, and those of us who want to use it can .. if you eventually set up G...

Re: OSDK 1.11

Great! I respect the inspiration here! I need to get used to bring back GitHub changes to SVN so that will be a good starting exercise. I think this is something you can probably script up to run automatically after pushing to master, no? Anyway, PM's exchanged, lets get our Github fort built and re...

Re: OSDK 1.11

So, I respect the very learned professionals' opinions in this thread, even though I (as a learned professional) do not entirely agree that the fault lies in the design of the tools - but rather the motivations (or lack thereof) of the users. However, in order for this to be productive, I set aside ...

Re: OSDK 1.11

NekoNoNiaow has given some good advice here - only thing I would add is that the whole 'staging' philosophy, which you probably adopted from years of SVN use, is not really a thing in git... rather you'd use a local branch, something like "development-staging" (or whatever, actually doesn't need to ...

Re: OSDK 1.11

Roger that, I do respect and understand that its your project, you get to choose what you want to do with it .. just that if you'd get over the Git hurdle, you'd probably get a few more contributors (myself included). Anyway if you ever decide to learn Git, I'd be happy to help you out. I think we c...
