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...

Re: Oric Explorer v2.0 is up for adoption!!!

Is there likely to be a release of this some time soon .. I could really use it right now - unless someone knows some other way to extract a text file listing (to my Mac or Linux systems) from a .COM in a .DSK file? EDIT: n/m I'm an idiot and just rediscovered the "LLIST" trick, which suffices for m...

Re: OSDK 1.11

This statement: No branches, what is committed is supposed to be in a releasable state, which means eventual experimental features have to be committed with special switches, or #ifdef'ed out. .. and this statement: In any case: I'm not against bringing in changes, but that should be done step by st...

Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

Hey DBug - because of your inspiring series, I've started an "Upgrade Time:" project of my own - I won't tell you what it is yet, but basically I've decided to follow in your footsteps - I've selected a nice BASIC program from the 80's that's inspired me, and I'm now going to add some advanced featu...

Re: JOric

I think Retro- computing is getting a bit of a following and its not really going away .. so putting an Oric emulator on any store, can only be a good thing imho. I think it'd be nice if someone would package it with recent releases (with author permissions of course) and promote it far and wide, in...

Re: Gamebase Oric V3.0

>its either a tape or a disk and that's pretty much all you need to worry about, most of the time.
True. But its those multi-.tap files you can get tangled up in ..

Looking forward to hearing more of your progress with J'Oric!
