I've seen the first type being called "Crystal" case a number of time.

Re: OASIS development

Magenta is a problematic color, generally speaking, I've seen it both very bright and very dark depending of screens. For texts displayed over BLACK, I think it's a good idea to avoid BLUE and MAGENTA, and RED sometimes appear very dark brownish when on old CRT screens over the antenna connector. ED...

Re: Latest version of Tap2Wav?

Oh I see... Try "TapTool" instead of "Tap2Wav".

I wanted to merge Tap2CD, Tap2Wav and Tap2DSK into one single program, but I never finished it, so the Tap2Wav in the archive is the super old dos executable.

Re: Latest version of Tap2Wav?

Strange, it's supposed to be a cleanly recompiled version with Visual Studio, should have been running fine.
Need to double check that.

Re: XA: * manipulations

It's probably possible to use .( and .) in the macro to avoid the label redefinition error if pstring(s) is called multiple time :) On a side note, while looking at the history of Defence Force today I discovered that Twilighte had used the wiki to document some issues he had in XA. I guess I should...

Re: Which EEPROM chip should I get to burn a new ROM?

I will let the smart people answer, but I remember having seen some Orics with more than one rom available, using some micro-switches to select them. If you use a 32KB eprom instead of 16kb, you should be able to have say the ROM 1.0 of the Oric 1 and the ROM 1.1 of the Oric Atmos -which would give ...

Re: Nice Hires screens

Sure, but in my idea we would load only few dozens of bytes for each frame.
Have you computed the average bit rate you get in fast loading mode?

Re: Nice Hires screens

My idea is more like something where you read a bunch of data as fast as you can, in a temporary buffer, then run some code that do something with the data, then continue loading. Obviously that means that the tape contains blank sections, which have to be at least as long as it take to process the ...

Thanks Mickael, I don't believe my site is hosted anywhere now. My cable company has been taken over twice since those days.

Re: xa and o65 format (and CC65)

This option probably got broken when I did some work on the pre-processor to fix some bugs and other weird behavior.
If all -M does is to allow/disallow the parsing of : in commented lines, maybe I should just remove it.
