Re: Mysterious program

I'm 5 years late but I found Oricopy , here it is! It seems to work on Oric-1 only. oricopy.tap The story : I had an mp3 in a very old mail, sent un January 2008 by Alan Skirenko - thanks to him years later! I had totally forgotten that, as I sometimes do :? Here's what Mr. Skirenko said about it: "...

Re: Oric Atmos resets after a few seconds ... when not grounded

I compared too ;) TomPhobos' set of ROM have the exact same content than the one Fabrice and Thierry analysed a few years ago!
I suspect the v1.3A is a home-modified one?

Re: Oric Atmos resets after a few seconds ... when not grounded

Long ago, Fabrice had a "DE" ROM, and he said it was exactly the same than then ROM 1.1b except: - Y and Z key exchanged on the keyboard mapping (and on the keyboard!) - 3 chars redefined: shifted [ and ] display ä and ü instead of { and }, and the key - shifted displays ö instead of £. So I guess t...

Re: Oric Atmos resets after a few seconds ... when not grounded

That will be interesting, because we had a German Orician at the French meeting last weekend (Michael), he had an Atmos with German keyboard and he let me dump the German ROM. There it is; we'll see if there's a difference between the two ;)

Re: Searching for Krystal Worlds (edited by OUM)

Are you sure there's no manuals on Oric.org ?
I scanned them, but maybe didn't put them online yet... (can't check from work, oric.org banned)

EDIT: yes, everything is on Oric.org, just just have to scroll down to the "stuff"section (you need to be logged in 1st, though)

Re: Searching for Krystal Worlds (edited by OUM)

The Quill was a program designed to make adventure games. Transfered it but never used it.

Anyway I think Quilled means the game was made with The Quill ;)

EDIT: I thought I had games using The Quill, but apparently not after a 1st quick search.

Re: Translation help

Thanks guys. So did I for the "crystal" case...
What's funny is that, if I understand correctly, there is no specific English word for the 2nd type? As well, as far as I know, there is no dedicated word in French...
Strange no? ;)

Re: Translation help

Cool, thanks :)
Just to be sure in the context I needed this translation, if I describe different packaging versions of the same program, does it make sense to say:
"the 1st version was sold in a tape box, then a 2nd one was later sold with a tape case"?

Translation help

Hi all,

I need your help on a stupid question, but I realise I never really knew that...
How do you call these different types of tape boxes? Is there a "standard" name for each?

Re: OASIS development

I also see the red problem here on the Youtube video. I suspect it's just because of compression. I'm often adding text notes on photos, and noticed that red color has to be avoided, because after Jpeg treatment it becomes very blurry. Don't ask me why, I never tried to understand, and use yellow in...

Re: FT-DOS disk size

Ah, thanks a lot for this! Brillant explanation. So it should be fine, I'll keep trying with other disks...

BTW I tried to test the faulty disk with my Jasmin 2 but it began smoking after 30 seconds of unsuccessful attempts to boot... :cry:
I really know why I prefer tapes ;)
