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

Interesting .. but I think the wait-period for the gate to open is too long .. other than that, a fun little game. Will play it some more and give feedback ..

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...

DBug: Blaming others for having an opinion on your work style that "dis-incentivised" you to continue: hmmm... As I recall the branch issue was just that - your work could've been done on another branch rather than an entirely separate, non-visible repo. But okay, your choice to prosecute your time ...

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?

Roger that. In penance, perhaps I should consider porting ..

Re: POP source code found (Prince of Princia)

I can't say I have much love for PoP either, as a game, but the idea of having a conversion for Oric is interesting. It seems to me that the Wurdle demo was headed in that direction: having a similar kind of feel/vibe with rotoscoped animation and Twilighte-level cleverness with colour placement. Po...

Re: JOric

Nice idea .. seems like it would be easiest to build a hash-table of all Oric .dsk/.tap files you can find, then bundle that into a database and include it in the app so that whenever the user adds .dsk/.tap files, their games are instantly recognised .. Or, another idea - you could just build in an...

Re: Twilighte's IM music

Sorry Chema, haven't had a chance yet - my working Oric rig is in a local hackerspace in preparation for a demo later this week - I will try it then, though. Does it matter if its an Oric-1 or Atmos?

Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

Great! :) About the object-draw: perhaps when you get to the screen fade/merge code, you might consider adding a menu option "Provide Hints", and then, if true, draw the objects with a slightly different fade or something .. anyway, great video, its really looking like a fun game to play. Only issue...
