Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

The problem I have with videos is they take a long time to watch and you generally don't get the associated "materials" to take away (code, documentation, etc.). But that's only my personal opinion of course, some people prefer watching stuff other like me prefer reading stuff. Well, everything is ...

Re: new with oric atmos

Hi Miguel, Are you trying to load WAV files you found on some site, or WAV file you sampled yourself from cassettes (tapes) ? Some Orics (like mine) can be quite picky/sensitive to the signal... I myselfhad many problems when trying to load files sampled at 11 kHz, and I had much better results with...

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

Thanks for the input, it's good news then if it can build on macOS and Linux! I was unaware that Mono allowed compatibility for GUI applications I thought it only catered for Console apps, like .Net core ! So thanks for clarifying this, as I said I know little about .Net especially about the latest ...

Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

HI DBug, I watched the first two episodes of this "Pimp My Game" Youtube series of yours, and found them really interesting though I personally would just prefer articles as I'm more the "reading type" than the "watching type" for this kind of thing. The problem I have with videos is they take a lon...

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

Hi NekoNoNiaow and thanks for your interest! The project compiles and builds OK, and the produced executable works fine. I just need to have a look at the installation script (it uses the Nullsoft installer) to see if I can produce an installation package (.msi or .exe) though this is purely cosmeti...

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

Here is a quick list of the welcome changes/additions I noted so far in Oric Explorer (compared to the interim 2.0 released circa 2014/2015): - it is now possible to tell oric Explorer to search tapes/disks in subfolders of the chosen directory (we were really missing this!) - new dark theme (love i...

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

Hello guys, I have good news and bad news for you concerning Oric Explorer by Scott Davies... I'll start with the bad news... About a week ago, I sent a email to Scott about the current state of development of Oric Explorer, because it had been more than 2 years since he removed the tool from the do...

Re: Microdisc connectors

Ah, thanks iss for going into it a little deeper. I did question myself about the "size of the pipe", how it was possible to ffed many hundreds of milliamps just over one little wire, and I have to say sometimes it must not be enough as there are cases where my Oric won't boot on first try, so maybe...

Re: Microdisc connectors

I think normally you can't power Oric with the ribbon cable. This is original Microdisc controller - pin 33 on the ribbon connector is not connected to +5V track. Yes, it looks like it's manually cut, but it is not.m1.jpg and here is again an original Microdisc 'last generation' - pin 33 has nothin...

Re: Microdisc connectors

Hi, I don't own a Microdisc but I know the 3" drives normally require 12V (as in Amstrad CPC's), so I suppose the Microdisc power connector should have at least +5V, +12V and GND terminals. As to powering the Oric, normally this is done directly from the Microdisc through the ribbon cable to the Ori...

Re: OSDK Linux/macOS recent version?

Hi guys, Just saw this discussion and it reminded me of an old project by Godzil I recently discovered on GitHub: https://github.com/Godzil/osXdk Essentially it is a fork of OSDK (from 2009-2010...) that was adapted for Mac OS X, but seems to have been abandoned. However, there might be some stuff i...
