Re: Oric Character Generator

My utility is to create / edit oric fonts on PC. Its a PC program, not oric. You can load Oric font file, edit it, and load it back from Oric.

The aim is to use PC capabilities like mouse, and creat oric fonts as yours (and mny other Oric character generators ) do on Oric.

Re: Oric Character Generator

Thanks for error-proofs :)

- Bug is fixed
- Font is set as courier new

And also, I made another form for code building instead of main form of the program. This looks even better I think :)

Re: Oric Character Generator

Can you give detail a bit.. I am confused .. unsigned char FontName[] = { 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, 0x1,0x2, ..., (for hex) ..... }; I have ascii of char and 8 bytes data for each.

Re: Oric Character Generator

Yes, VB6 :) From my early experience with Oric, BASIC was always my language to choose. later on, GWBASIC, QBASIC, Quick Basic, VB3 and at last VB6. After that, it is beyond my experience like VB.NET etc. Thanks for your compliments ! @ iss, I forget to include MSVBVM60.DLL and COMDLG32.OCX , sorry ...

Oric Character Generator

After a of period of time, I finished one of my dream project of Oric Character Generator for PC. I had chance to do this because I broke my ankle bone. I have to stay at home for another month so I try to build this application. http://puu.sh/rE5hN/13b06ca336.png This utility is aimed to load/edit/...

Re: Article: How to add charsets to your program

Why are you angry? If I had a talent, I would make all those utils, but also a character generator, a sprite generator maybe, a graphic editor which can give output as oric format would be unique as there is not one available yet. I know there are some people among us who can do that. But that's not...

Re: Article: How to add charsets to your program

Yes :) Thats one way to do it.

But for a programmer, its not so complicated to create one utility to do this at once.

There are not much Oric related PC programs and I am sad about this..

Once I've wrote a simple program using lightpen emulation to show ability of lightpen. Its so primitive, has lots of bugs b...

Re: OASIS very very early alpha tech demo

In the first versions of sierra games (kings quest, leisure suit of larry etc) user has to write write all the commands as a sentence everytime ( like ASK WINE FROM BARTENDER ). It was so hard to guess what kind of sentence to choose, and writing commands everytime was really diffucult. That's why, ...
