Re: Modern Software Packaging

Just caught a small typo on "PrintSheet_1" for Kong: "barels" is misspelt, should be "barrels" :-) Thanks, fixed :) Did not have time to have a look at the high resolution version yet, but I must say that, it being an impressive job, I miss the Defence-Force logo... :( I had it on Skool Daze and Bl...

Re: Modern Software Packaging

I'm satisfied by the current style for the games and stickers, so I'm considering going to the print show soon, here is what that looks like: AllPrintSheets.png On the bottom right you can see some variants of Oric themed floppy stickers for single sided 3", double sided 3" and 3.5". You may have no...

Re: You Suffered A Catastrophic Failure, Please Surrender Your Server

I had to switch off the system, earlier today, we are not running with the brand new PSU (If you are interested, a semi-modular Seasonic Focus 650W 80+ Gold), all the filters cleaned up, all the dust vacuumed.

The PSU is dead, long live the PSU :)

Re: You Suffered A Catastrophic Failure, Please Surrender Your Server

Stupid question but would it be complicated to backup the whole disk(s) running the forum, let's say, once or twice a week? You know, with a sort of Ghost or Macrium thing. Would require some downtime (that I think none would mind for here), and might save yours in case of major crash. There is an ...

Re: Composite video mod?

Which brings me to my question: is adding a composite video output to the Oric considered a "solved problem" ? Or are people still struggling with that / only unsatisfactory solutions are known? Composite as a solved problem, definitely not. When I was still living in France, before the days of che...

Re: OSDK 1.14 RC

I guess you guys are indeed onto something regarding paths and spaces. I am using the downloaded 1.14RC3 version to which I added support %OSDK% paths with spaces (which I use constantly) by fixing bin/execute.bat and bin/make.bat. I suspect that my changes miss a few cases but I do not understand ...

Re: You Suffered A Catastrophic Failure, Please Surrender Your Server

Well done getting it back up. Do you have a server fund I can send some euros to ? I don't hate a "server fund": I prefer to receive help from the community when I need it, like when I try to locate some software, hardware, or helping me with repairing my Orics, rather than some money :) But thanks...

You Suffered A Catastrophic Failure, Please Surrender Your Server

Sorry for the outage. Yesterday when I came back (late) from my Norwegian lessons, I found out the server was dead. It was actually cold, so I suppose it had been dead for a few hours at least. Anyway, as far as I can see, we suffered from a number of things: - The PSU died - That somewhat corrupted...

Re: 65c22

where the 6522 serial shift register bug meant some disk routines using hardware shifts had to be completely rewritten in software, hence the very poor throughput of the disk unit). The shift register feature does not work on all the Orics. Twilighted used that for some of his sound routines, and i...
