Re: Competition CEO: New Year 2019

Ok, thanks for clarifying this Didier! So I suppose I could get on with my "Heroric" project (clone of H.E.R.O., see my avatar, I'm still hesitating between going full colour with attribute clash, or using AIC mode on this :D) as there is little chance that Atari would sue us.. And by the way this g...

Re: Wich scripting language for OSDK ?

Hi, I know almost next to nothing about Lua, but it seems to get a lot of traction in gaming, and I've always meant to learn it, and finally, amongst all options it seems to be the best one for me. So, +1 for Lua too :) Python would have been a good candidate too, another one to consider also would ...

Re: Competition CEO: New Year 2019

Great initiative from the CEO, I am longing to see all the good contributions that will come out of it, and I will also try my best to contribute ! :D There is one rule though in this contest (only listed on the entry form) that I didn't pay attention to at first but that is of particular importance...

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

Hi, At long last I have just published the "Work in Progress" version of Oric Explorer 2.0 on Github: GitHub - laurentd75/OricExplorer I really want to apologize to the Oric community for this appalling delay, explained in part by a number of unforeseen events and commitments, and in part by my very...

Re: Multiple IF THEN ELSE on the same line?

Hi, For what it's worth, here's a small test I wrote (for a completely different matter that is however slightly related to your "Encounter" series...) to see whether (and how many) imbricated IF THEN ELSE statements worked in Oric BASIC: I honestly was amazed it did work... 10 L=1:GOSUB100 20 L=2:G...

Re: ORIC ULA on a CPLD ?

Take a look HERE and HERE - whole Oric in FPGA. Hi guys, Just stumbled on this thread and I wanted to clarify the status of the "Oric in FPGA" project": First of all, I am not involved in any way in this project. However, I created the Github repository for the Oric-in-FPGA project 5 years ago usin...

Re: OType

Ok, I found back the disk with Impossible Mission tune, not exactly the same and playing slower. Two questions: 1- where do I post it? .../... 2- I also made a mp3 of the tune, with a fake stereo (simply created by a little delay between left annd right channels). Anyone interested? That's great, t...

Re: OType

Do you want to turn your Oric into a synthesiser, and never use it for anything else? :P. Because this is how we get synthesisers. :) No, I'll keep my Oric for games and programming :D But now that you mention synthetisers, I actually have a bunch of AY/YM chips and I alread built a circuit similar...

Re: OType

Twilighte did wonders with the Oric's AY... Pity we don't have the information about how he did those things. He experimented with many many different techniques. One of them was adding 'colour' to the notes by using the Envelope generator at certain frequencies. Unfortunately, that means no volume...

Re: And the CEO ?

Same for me... I'll be on hols in Crete till the 16th, returning in the evening... :? :(

It would be great if the meeting could be rescheduled on the 23rd or the 30th... I asked on forums.oric.org, but I doubt it will be possible, though there's nothing wrong in asking !!!

Re: Microdisc in ebay

You guys are rignt, actually... While I think such prices are still exaggerated, thinking in terms of "usage price" helps put it in perspective to other costs... And effectively, you can also consider that you will probably be able to regain some or all of your costs if you resell the actual thing w...

Re: oric advanced user guide is still available

Thanks Steve for your input! I was myself surprised the Library would allow sending full prints but I thought maybe because the book is old it is permitted... But you're probably right, there must be a limit to how much of the book you're allowed to copy... Anyway, good news for everyone.... I actua...
