Not sure for this morning, but it seems to be working for me right now.

Re: Bocco's adventures

That's a crazy size reduction.

Is it somewhat possible to compile CC65 to assembler source code so I can compare the results with what LCC is generating?
I think Fabrice would be interested :)

Re: Bocco's adventures

So, I took a look at the source code, and I managed to rebuild it with the OSDK (I had to fix a number of prototyping errors), and I used the mapfile converter to generate the list of symbols with their size. I've not used CC65 much, but would be nice if you could generate a symbol file (name + labe...

Re: Bocco's adventures

I needed 27k for the game:
From 27 to 42k, that's quite a difference, I suspect some section problem.
Do you have the project source code somewhere so I can look at it?

Re: Bocco's adventures

At one moment memory space over with osdk. I was thinking of canceling the project. But it turned out that there was another solution to this problem. (...)Many thanks to the ISS for helping me to pass the code to cc65 Just for information, what was the actual difference in memory usage between the...

Re: Oric Games Trade

I shall have a look at those remaining "pinball" tapes you have and we'll look into a possible swap. I took photos of the flippers (and lorigraphs), took the inlays out of the box so you can see in which shape they are: flippers_top.jpg flippers_bottom.jpg I am sure Oric CAD - unless you're negotia...

Re: Oric Games Trade

Yes, I will go through my possible swaps with you, Dbug, as the tapes I have mentioned so far, which you seek, are not (like yours) duplicates so we shall just have to see if your pinball style games manage to tempt me to give up my one and only originals, as it were! Oh, look, I've already got Mac...

Re: Oric Games Trade

Not everyone looks in everyday - it's not Facebook ;o) I was looking at the pic and spotted the Ultra tape looks like the French version - so I'm interested in that. Yes indeed, that being said, on these PSS games only the inlay is in french, with the localized instructions, the tape itself is the ...

I remember printing out some HIRES screens but I'm not sure how I did it It was slow - but a lot quicker than the MCP40 plotter.
And probably a lot cheaper, the MCP40 is emptying the small pens faster than by car emptying the petrol tank :)

Re: Oric Games Trade

I have L'Aigle d'Or and Le Diament de l'ile Maudite already. I might have Ring of Darkness - I'll have a look. I've found a CAD but it's only got the back of the inlay. Do you have the O.P.E.L joystick interface and software package? I have a lot of books if you're interested. I do have the OPEL in...

Re: Oric Games Trade

Before taking any decision, I will let people have a chance to give offers, say one or two weeks, but I will first favor exchanges against other programs that I don't have, and then only I'll consider selling the rest :) But I will take everybody's wishes and offers in consideration, don't worry.

Re: Atmos "Kopy"

Does not even need to be oled, some of these old nokia screens (like the one on the cumulus) have a resolution of 240x240 pixels, that would fit perfectly with the Oric resolution and fit on top of the micro keyboard :)

Oric Games Trade

[The current list of trades is at the end of the post, names in bold are the firms offers I received] A few years ago (time flies...) I started (again) collecting Oric games for the sake of preservation, but also for documenting and making articles about the various publishers, how games were relea...
