Re: Oric AtmoStrat GX

Hello, Just for your information, it seems the Atmostrat GX site (http://oric.club/atmostrat) was taken down sometime during the last quarter of 2018... Fortunately, there are archived versions of the site still available on "Wayback Archive", the latest dates back 13 August 2018: https://web.archiv...

Re: Competition CEO: New Year 2019

Thanks DBug for sharing your code, and I hope you get some time in the future to pursue this project :) As to my CEO contest entry (ElectrOric), I have extensively reworked and expanded my meager, half-baked one-level demo project into an (almost) full game. It now features 25 levels with "unlock co...

Re: Better code generation (for CC65)

Speaking of bugs/test cases, I thought there was a bug in lcc/OSDK with unions in C, because after refactoring some of my code to introduce unions last week, it reacted strangely (union members not being correctly updated after being assigned) and I had to implement things differently (actually putt...

Re: Better code generation (for CC65)

Maybe everybody should try to rebuild their programs in -O3 and see if they notice any bugs, because there used to be some code generation errors, which is why it was not enabled by default, but if it works, that could be a good first step. Well, if we are talking about rcc16 used in the OSDK, it l...

Re: OSDK feature request - add OSDKMACHINE env variable to set target machine for execution

Thanks for creating the issues on the issue tracking system DBug. Regarding the second issue (Oric 1 compatibility of OSDK C libraries), I'm taking the "Run time selection" route. I'll create a new topic as soon as I have something working for some of the libraries (I have an easy and hopefully smal...

OSDK feature request - add OSDKMACHINE env variable to set target machine for execution

Hi, When launching a program made with OSDK on Oricutron, the emulator is launched in default (e.g. Atmos) mode. Strangely, the OSDK\Oricutron\osdk_oricutron.bat file does mention the possibility of "ROM choice / Machine choice", but is currently not implemented (by the way, the comment mentions Eup...

Re: Competition CEO: New Year 2019

Same here.. I can't bring the things in my mind to the life..I am stuck with some machine code routines. There are some projects I started but none of them seems to be going to finish. I hope I would finish something worth to share but probability is still low, and time is running fast... I know th...

Hi Peacer, Symonn & Romuald, nice to hear you're planning to contribute and nice to hear we're more or less in the same league, trying to contribute just "a little something" within the limited timeframe and bearing our various obligations and other commitments :-) Nice to hear as well that Chema wi...

Re: I want to build an soldering iron

Well Brana, I'm not very skilled in electricity or in electronics, but according to the basic Ohm law, yes, your calculations are correct for your example: Known values: P = 30 W U = 12 V Using the P = U x I equation we can then compute I = P / U = 30 / 12 = 2.5 A Then using the U = R x I equation w...

Re: Competition CEO: New Year 2019

I will do some tests with AIC but I'm not very skilled at graphics in the first place, therefore I'm even less skilled at AIC :cry: Not sure I will be focusing on this game now, I may develop something else as an entry for the contest. Anyway, just wanted to know how many people were considering tak...

Re: Port Crazee Rider?

Well, I wasn't including 3D Fongus in the "3D racing category" although this point can be argued of course, because you can race planes as well as you can race cars :D Anyway, I totally agree with you, 3D Fongus was probably the most impressive 3D game on the Oric, and was in addition one of the mos...

Re: Port Crazee Rider?

Wow... I didn't know the "Starter 3D" game, I tried it and yes, it's definitively the best ever 3D rtacing game on the Oric on the technical side !! Unfortunately, it's quite unplayable, I was unable to pass the 2 qualification laps, and you don't even know the maximum lap time to get qualified... I...
