Re: Oric 1 with messy video problem

... and after you confirm that above solution works, maybe you will ask for battery-less setup ;).
Here you can find voltage-doubler+charge-pump using synchro signal.

Or you can solder DIN-5-male to DIN-5-male cable:

I hope this helps :)

Re: Oric 1 with messy video problem

Looking in the Service Manual (page 16) there should be NO problem to use SCART input with Oric: monitor.png But definitely you must put some voltage ( 1–3 V → RGB ) at SCART'S Pin 16 ! Disassemble the SCART connector and connect an external battery (or maybe 2 x 1.5 V in series) ' minus ' goes to P...

Re: cataloguing tapes

+1 @christian !

Just for the record: you can set the start address from inside the assembler source too inserting this as first line:

Code: Select all

        * = $9700
L_9700  LDA    $9C             ; 9700  A59C

Re: cataloguing tapes

IMHO casscat and lcat7 are better choice. With full respect to mikeb 's good memories ;) here is OCR-error-free source from Oric Computing in XA assembler: L_9700 LDA $9C ; 9700 A59C LDY $9D ; 9702 A49D STA $00 ; 9704 8500 STY $01 ; 9706 8401 PHP ; 9708 08 JSR $E725 ; 9709 2025E7 JSR $E6CA ; 970C 20...

Re: New conversion algorithm

Congrats, sam ! Last version works for me and the result is cool. Just some minor, random, very-Linux-specific thoughts: - use dos2unix to convert lua source line endings; - if the first source line is: #!/usr/bin/env lua and chmod +x oric_tst5.lua then you can execute directly from bash: ./oric_tst...

Re: TapOric - android TAP player for Oric

I intend to buy an budget Android tablet like this https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B07TS2SFD2/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?smid=A2FMUK9GXXF1FV&psc=1 , TapOric will it work? I think it will work fine with that device. I've tested with Android 9 and TapOric works. I'm preparing the new version which will h...

Re: ON/OFF switch

It works for me but if you have a switch Chema's solution is very good too.

I'm converting into TAP a program that uses STORE and RECALL commands.
What is the source type of the program being converted to TAP?

Re: Oricutron disks and tapes

I've got Win7 64bit. I'm not certain if my Oricutron is the Win32 or Win64 version. How can I tell ? With Win7 64bit you can download Oricutron_win64-20190905.zip and extract only the oricutron.exe to your currently used directory. It will work no matter if old version is 32 or 64 bit. In my builds...

Re: New conversion algorithm

Nice improvement, indeed!
What about to release a standalone version? If you don't want to bother with all different input formats then simple BMP should be enough.
I think I already have some BMP file handling in LUA but it's easy to be coded from scratch anytime... ;)
