Re: Trouble In Store

Ah, I know the feeling; hope you find it soon. Lost a tape years ago before I knew the Internet and clubs existed... I thought the games that were on it were lost forever, and that's probably one of the things that motivated me to try backuping datas from tapes.

I assume that you only kept the right audio track?
Sure. Tried both actually, 1st with transfer tools, then with a few tries to modify the signal, finally tried loading on an Atmos.

(that being said, I'm not giving up. The data is here and with some time, who knows).

Re: Trouble In Store

Ha ha, no, I was looking for the program itself!

That being said, Dbug's recording doesn't load here. Bad luck or could Orpheus have recorded their tapes really badly?

Trouble In Store

Hi,
I'm looking for a nice audio recording (ideally 8 bits, 44kHz stereo WAV file) of the original game Trouble in Store.

Would anyone have this... in store? ;)
Got the original tape but the recording is almost dead...
Thanks!

PS: I'm not interested in audio of copies ;)

Re: Sedoric or not, overlay or not

Actually when exectuing my prrogram, I have no idea if the Overlay RAM is ON or not. Depends on what Sedoric just did before, I think. So here's a draft of code written in a rush (as usual, forgive the syntax, I'm only slowly adopting standards ;) ) --- Check if RAM overlay is ON, and ROM type (1.0 ...

Re: Sedoric or not, overlay or not

Now, just need a reliable test to be sure Sedoric is running (and not some other DOS) Well, no time to check other DOS, but I'll rely on this to check if Sedoric is in RAM: LDA $0477 CMP #$08 This checks if the 'PHP' op-code is in RAM in $0477. It's the 1st byte of the Sedoric routine to switch to ...

Re: Sedoric or not, overlay or not

OK, found something: $C800 seems a good candidate. = 00 => ROM 1.0 = 4E => ROM 1.1 = 07 => Sedoric 3 or 4 overlay = 09 => Sedoric 1 overlay mmmmh, haven't checked Sedoric 2 yet, but I'd prefer finding the same value whatever Sedoric is running. $C980 AA => ROM 1.0 A5 => ROM 1.1 48 => Any Sedoric ove...

Sedoric or not, overlay or not

Hi, I'm currently working at faster CSAVE routines, but I would love them to work: - on Oric-1 - on Atmos - with or without Sedoric As these routines are making calls to the oric ROM, I'd need to test before it runs: - if Sedoric is loaded (any version!) - if so, if the overlay RAM is set - so I can...

So there is no way that an RS232 can be added unless using an Arduino Mega.
Ok thanks, I was pretty sure that it was a bit dreaming ;)

Re: Networking Orics.

I will probably implement one more, you guyz prefer IJK or ALTAI? Seems incredible. I have never heared of Altai, so I suspect IJK (or OPEL?) would be a candidate. Would be cool if a UK user could tell us more which one was more popular. But I have a stupid question : could this last availble 'slot...

Re: Networking Orics.

Lots of PASE converted games in disk format here (Dominique's old pages): http://dominique.pessan.pagesperso-orange.fr/oric/joystick.htm Beware that those disks may be slave disks, i.e Sedoric without operating system on them. If so, you need to boot first on a Sedoric master disk, then inster those...

Re: Networking Orics.

I think PASE interface was quite popular in the early years. A few program patches were sold to let players use the joystick with popular games. Then came the programmable interfaces. This is the little I know from France, maybe the reality of the whole market was different... And it's likely that t...

Re: Track reading (Sedoric / FDC)

One mystery solved: the Nibble manual explains how it deals with track mode. It actually reads the whole track first, keeping in memory each of the sectors ID positions. Then it reads each sector, and puts them in place of the ones that were read in track mode... "Because of the bad quality of track...

Re: PC to Oric 3.5" floppy

Quite interesting, thanks Romu.
Seems almost nobody tried them with 3" drives yet, I read somewhere that only some tests were made with a few Amstrad drives. So the card builder was only certifying the card to work with one 3" drive model.
