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.

Re: xa and o65 format (and CC65)

What I could do, is to add an explanation on the top of the XA documentation page on OSDK.org explaining that this is not the official version, and redirect people to http://www.floodgap.com/retrotech/xa/ if they want the official one.

Re: xa and o65 format (and CC65)

I've just realized I'm not using the same version of XA, mine is v2.3.7... :o The OSDK XA is not the same as the "official" XA. Basically the version in the OSDK is based from the 1998 source code snapshot of XA when André stopped maintaining it. Fast forward more than a decade, I've been releasing...

Re: xa and o65 format (and CC65)

The problem is that i use cc65 for Orix tool (with telemon3.0). I wrote a new tool in assembly, but i need to add command line parameter, i am too lazy to code it in assembly. That is why, i want to link xa code with cc65 Hmm, so cc65 has native command line support, how does that work exactly? I a...
