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...

Re: New tape loading speed - testers needed!

Thanks, Symoon! I knew it you can help me! ... and always is good to read the sources carefully: void emit_gap() { int i; /* un paquet de bits stop pour laisser le temps d'afficher la ligne de statut */ for (i=0;i<100;i++) emit_bit(1); } I missed this during the fight with other serious issues.

Re: New tape loading speed - testers needed!

Symoon, I want to confirm (one year later :)) the minimal duration for a "0" is 529µs and for a "1" - 115µs . Currently I'm using successfully T0=541µs and T1=125µs and the loading is very reliable even with WiFi turned on ;). Unfortunately, strange problem occurs at first 3-4 bytes of the read data...

Re: How to install a 3" floppy drive on a modern pc?

I tested OricDSK when it was released (2016 December). It seemed to work on my old laptop with real FDC and 3.5" floppy, but the produced disks were with many errors. Currently I'm using fdrawcmd.sys + SamDisk with DSK files converted to HFE and I'm very happy with the results. This combination work...
