Re: TapOric - android TAP player for Oric

Oh, that's pity, Symoon!
Supporting 2.x Android is bit difficult but is no real problem. TapOric is redesigned and I'm preparing the first release...

Re: Full Telestrat in Ebay

Real madness, indeed!
Let's hope the Telestrat is in good hands or in museum (the buyer is obviously a serious collector) and more people can at least look this beauty.

Thanks for this useful info, Symoon! When time allows I'll look at 1.0 routines for my education ;).

Re: Progress bar loading

Nice and useful indeed!
What about to merge it with the parity checker and mark in color where check is failed... just and idea ;).
BTW, Is there any particular reason to support only ROM1.1 (except different address of the used rom routines) ?

Re: Development of Blake's 7 (was OASIS development)

- Any other ideas? My project TrackOric (TrackPad for Oric) goes well and really things are looking very promising! I'll continue it after 2 weeks (because of vacation ...) and hope to show working demo at end of September. The plan is to put the code entirely in page $100 leaving enough space for ...

Re: Box for AmpliBus.

Fresh printed. PCB fits perfect.
There is just no enough room for my straight 9V power connector, fortunately I have lot of L-shaped connectors :).
Thanks, well done 3D model.

Re: Assembler / disassembler

+1 for XA/OSDK.
BTW, when I saw your source 'Load_Vader_0400_source.txt', I wonder what tool are you using because of the inconsistency of hex number notation ($,# ...), I simply can't believe you do it everything manual. Man, this is self punishment ;).

Re: EDGE - a new game which needs sounds and music

Hi and congrats! Your game looks really very nice and interesting. I like especially the rotating-jump move :). I found small glich - color attributes are not cleared on the right of the 'EDGE' logo. To reproduce: cload Edge.tap, on first level press 'i', press 'u' ... you'll see it. About size opti...

Re: FDC connector

As you said the name is exactly male/female 4-pin Molex power connector . Normally pins and housing are sold separately, but there are lot of options for ready made cables - all possible m/f to m/f combinations plus Y-splitters, extenders and etc. Is this what you need -> 4 Pin Molex Male to a 4 Pin...

Re: TapOric - android TAP player for Oric

Thanks for feedback, some more details: - no real problem with Tap2CD - just my limited free time :); - It's good to have the hardware not only for auto-playback control, but because it filtrates the signal and makes the transfer more reliable. Honestly simple cable works and I don't have problems w...

TrackOric - android "something" for Oric

Hello everybody, During my work on TapOric , I suddenly realized: it would be relatively easy, using TAP-like transfer, to convert any smart phone in TrackPad for Oric! I started already the implementation and hope to have something working very soon! @Chema : Oh, how I wish to play " Blacke's 7 " w...

TapOric - android TAP player for Oric

Hello everyone, I'm glad to share some success with my last project dedicated to Oric: TapOric . Here are some preliminary screen shots: TapOric.jpg Basically it's a TAP player, but it converts data to WAV-like-samples in real-time and sends it trough headset-output to Oric. Currently working are FA...
