Photocopies

Hi, I found back photocopies of (almost all) the Service Manual that Steve reproduced and made available as a PDF years ago.
If anyone's interested let me know quickly, it goes to the bin tomorrow evening (I need room ;) )

Re: English Translation of HyperBasic need

By hex-editing them, both are in French.
But the content is not exactly identical - can't tell what in terms of functionalities.

Re: English Translation of HyperBasic need

Hyper Basic is definitely French-made. It was made by Fabrice Broche, and IIRC the Telestrat release was delayed because of Hyper Basic not being ready in time.
Well, that's the story at least; usually truth is not so simple!

Re: English Translation of HyperBasic need

Yess IIRC Fabrice translated the manual (at least a part of it). See Steve's link; if I'm not mistaken it used to be on Fabrice's website long ago but apparently not anymore. If you were talking about the ROM istelf, I've never heared of an English translation - but I've never paid much attention to...

Re: World Of Spectum (about magazines)

Thanks for the replies! And for the links Chema. It's an idea but as usual, it takes time - especially since there are soooo many magazines to check. Dbug: you're totally right... With old small websites only based on hyperlinks, a backup on disk was easy but nowadays? The idea being that, if the ma...

World Of Spectum (about magazines)

Hi there, I haven't perfectly understood what's going on but it seems the excellent website World Of Spectrum is in trouble, and that it's been lasting for a while now. Its FTP is unreachable, and that's a pity because it did hold loads of magazine scans. What's the link with Oric? Well I had begun ...

Small ranting of the evening: I find it harder to see the new posts - I mean visually, with the colours.
Luckily the "new posts" link will help!

Yes, same here: slowdowns, long reply time, timeouts.
Hoping Dbug's not experiencing boring / time consuming problems.

Re: Experimental very fast tape loading

Hello! I need your help to test the reliability of an expected improvement on the very fast tape loading routines. Fabrice gave me (huge) hints on how to measure things in the best possible way (with a 3µs precision). How to operate, once you downloaded the test kit: - you need a perfect quality WAV...

John S. Sinclair on Oric.org

Hi all,

Dbug, it seems John S. Sinclair replied to your comment on Zorgons Revenge ;)
http://www.oric.org/software/zorgon_s_revenge-545.html

Glad to see he's still around, I'd love to make a small interview (having to read again the one Steve made though).

Re: OASIS development

:D Very nice indeed! So much efforts in the details!
Lucasfilm's Zak Mac Kracken didn't even have such a design for teleportation: it just used a sound and erased or re-drew the hero's sprite.

Re: And the CEO ?

That was a great meeting last Saturday. At least 12 people were there. It didn't begin so well as the meeting place was locked and nobody was there to open us. We lost one hour but thanks to Jede (and Coco.oric's credit card) we were able to quickly rent another meeting room, which was well equiped....
