Re: OSDK 1.9

Regarding the tiling thing, that is what I am doing in my room editor. I could provide some code in C#.... The idea is dividing the pic in 6x8 cells called tiles (that is 8 bytes) and start from one corner checking if a tile does not exist and, if that is the case, then add it to the current tile s...

Re: OSDK 1.9

Bad idea, I don't use gmail, it just happen that to use comp.sys.oric with googlegroups you need a valid google mail account.
I wonder how many millions of mails I have there that I have never seen...

Re: OSDK 1.9

- PictConv - when used in char generator mode, to be able get more input files (sprites with different sizes), split them in 6x8 tiles and generate char definitions for all unique tiles (i.e. all repeated tiles will have only one definition). For my own purpose I solved this with a post-processing ...

Re: OSDK 1.9

I fixed the link.

Re: World Of Spectum (about magazines)

Long time ago (2000 to 2003), Oric.org was hosted on my own server at home. There is some problem with that, because, it needs more work to run websites, and if something is wrong and i am on holidays, nobody can fix the problem. That is why i hosted oric.org on OVH.com. It costs 60 euros for a yea...

Re: World Of Spectum (about magazines)

Internet Permanent File System: http://ipfs.io/ If we could get the files in a clean format, we could share them on IPFS .. Interesting, but the problem is that this handles only the static part of the system. I could give you an entire snapshot of defence-force, but that would not help with the ph...

Re: World Of Spectum (about magazines)

Generally speaking, that shows one of the issues with these non professional sites - including Defence Force: How to ensure the posterity. If I was to die tomorrow, I'm not quite sure how things would work: My ISP would stop receiving my monthly payment, then the domain names would not be renewed, h...

Re: Maintenance

Ok, the backups scripts are now running, VNC and SSH are correctly working, and I moved the server back this morning to the place where it is supposed to be (ie: plugged onto the battery backed-up unit).

Let's hope it will work nicely for a while :)

Re: Maintenance

Looks like I managed to get the email notifications to work... pfiuu.
Last step should be to reconfigure the backup scripts (yes, we are running without backups since last week, but there was not much messages posted, so we should be fine)

Re: Maintenance

I totally dislike the red colored icon as well.
The previous icons worked a lot better, I will try to find a better way to display that, so far the only skinning work I do is to make it less blue :D

Re: OASIS development

Additional question: do the IRQs need to be disabled? As far as I know, you can have the IRQ enabled... BUT it's when using IRQ based loading (ie: the byte is fetched in the IRQ routine and then you return immediately). If you are using the bit polling method, IRQ should be disabled during all the ...

Re: Maintenance

So, I managed to: - Fix all the sites that used my php code (the main site, blog, osdk, etc...) so the tabs and links now work (they don't send you back to the main page) - The access control seem to be working again (no more poking on unprotected config files) - The forum skin is slightly less stan...

Re: Error with too many #defines

Just for the sake of not forgetting, and also to test the new server, I added an issue on that one:

Re: Maintenance

I found the cause for the main site pages not working, it's because I forgot to enable the mode where apache will serve files correctly even if you don't specify the correct type. I'm often referring ot "index" instead of "index.php". I guess the long term fix that simplify stuff would be to actuall...
