Re: OricExos - making the impossible

About the sound problem - without buffer on the parallel port
when all VIAs start to write together to their AY then there will be smoke :?.
In regard to video output we already have RGB and Composite/S-Video.

Re: OricExos - making the impossible

Small update about the progress (sometimes thing happen slower than you wish). Firstly I connected the 4 Orics with simple ribbon cable - all lines are straight only master's STB is crossed to slaves's ACK. I made some tests and the speed was incredible but during the preparation of the demo I sudde...

Re: Full Telestrat in Ebay

New Telestrat on eBay - HERE!
It looks complete and very nice. I expect new world record in the winning bid.
But actually there is something that may help to buy it at lower price - its name is spelled as "TELESTRAD"
and the search engine doesn't return it as result when you search TELESTRAT ;).

Re: Oricutron feature request: external debugger support.

Well guys, Be careful what you wish for, it might just come true! https://youtu.be/xgw61o42vuE Here is what you need: Oricutron with serial support in 'modem' mode . Use command line switch: --serial modem:65020 or edit your 'oricutron.cfg' file: serial = 'modem:65020' serial_address = $31c Here 65...

Re: Oricutron 1.0 (EDIT: Now 1.2)

In my humble opinion, the current status of Oricutron's sources is quite stable and there is no critical issues reported. That being said I think it's really time for new release. I'm ready to help where is needed! BTW, I will be very happy if before release all sources are passed trough a code form...

Re: OricExos - making the impossible

Re-captured and merged previous "color bars" and "more color bars" demos.


@ibisum: I think it's possible to use more Oric's to "retouché" old games but it will be not easy task.

Re: OricExos - making the impossible

Here are some dimensions of 4 Oric stacked: dimensions.jpg I agree with Chema - there is no need to cut Pravetz - you can use its keyboard with long ribbon cable (mine works fine with 1 meter cable). Unfortunately, I didn't find a really good connectors for this and it look ugly by me! BTW, I will s...
