Re: Multi-Key Handling

In my projects I'm using the Dbug/Chema keyboard routines too (with some minor modifications related to cc65 compatibility) - everything works nice! But for multi-key handling there is already another routine from Geoff Philips's Oric Atmos and Oric 1 Graphics and Machine code techniques - in DF lib...

Re: A possible software alternative to Vsync?

Any news on this? :wink: Not really, there is no evidence that it works in Oricutron... yes, something changes but it's not clear what actually happens. From one side I can't understand fully the algorithm, from other Oricutron's emulation is not very precise so I'm not sure if the implementation i...

Re: Bocco's adventures

Congrats for the great game, rax! Incredible AIC graphics, nice puzzles to solve (not easy but fun) ... and everything in pure C! The DSK image contains level editor too - from main menu press '!' to exit the game and start editor with BOCCOED . Here is some clue for the first level 3x3 screen matri...

Re: Oric-1 Repair

As @Chema said the HEX values represent which column is to be scanned i.e. if particular bit is '0' then the column is 'activated'. Here is better picture and how the things work: OricKbd.jpg For instance to check if the comma is pressed we set AY I/O register to value #FD - this passes ' 0 ' to the...

Re: Oricutron Software Categories

I fully agree with Chema! Oricutron is portable across wide range of platforms and having such functionality will be not easy for support (although it's possible). Better solution is to use a front-end like Gamebase Oric V1.00 - the 3-parts archive is still available for download. After unpacking yo...

Hey, that's a demo, intended to auto-run in shops - so no interactivity beside the initial settings ;)

I'm just back from vacation and I like the activity on this topic! 8)
Next days I'll have some free-time to refresh my memories what is the actual state of the VSync algo and will report asap.

Re: Sources for MODEM programs

@Chema: I'm very glad that you like OTRM :). The blue bar will be status bar, currently it shows only -/+ when not/connected to server. Special keys are only CTRL left/right arrows, and CTRL-X to quit the program. It's work in progress and part of my 'Oric Communication package'. OTRM is not just 'n...

Re: Sources for MODEM programs

... and here is a screenshot connected to the fix.no BBS.

As you can read it was 'moved' to port 24, so to properly connect you have to type

Code: Select all

Re: Sources for MODEM programs

As Chema said zipped DSK is available at: http://oric.free.fr/DISKS/ (and many more other interesting things). I've actually downloaded the same zipped DSK from Alexios Chouchoulas' site: https://oric-soft.bedroomlan.org/files/DISKS/ Unfortunately there are no sources :( It will be very pity if they...
