Re: ORIC SDCARD

Just a quick note. In the Spanish forum Retrowiki, a user just launched a batch of 15 cards with components with the info Kenneth provided and all of them were reserved in a few hours. I even missed it! I just can't believe the price is under 8 euros! (unmounted) but the list was complete even befor...

Re: USB to IDC 20 / Centronics?

I don't see why it shouldn't. After all these printers respond to commands sent through the paralell port, so it is a matter of writing the appropriate software (or driver!). And knowing the commands, of course :) I don't see the benefit of that, however. What do you have in mind, Dbug? I bet someth...

Re: Looking for MCP 40 paper rolls

Hmmm... they may not, but I think they have a Facebook page. I'd ask them directly.

If they don't, I could act as a convenient proxy ;)

Re: Oric Atmos manual wanted

I got my original oric out of the basement 25 years later and it worked perfectly. No repair was needed at all.

Re: ORIC SDCARD

I was thinking on a patched ROM that trapped the CLOAD command and could read a tap file on a sedoric disk. The user could boot the Oric (with disk drive) using that ROM data copied in overlay ram such as it is done now with the usual ROM files (boot with Atmos or 1 Rom's in overlay ram from sedoric...

Re: ORIC SDCARD

Looks great! Congratulations!

Will you publish the schematics and data needed to build one? Does it need a modified ROM? Could the method be used to load tap files from a disk unit?

Re: Oricutron and window size/scale

I think there is not an option to do this in the current version :( I would also love to be able to set an integer (x3 x4 ...) scale in Oricutron, but we'd have to wait until some developer makes it happen :roll: However, just as a side note, you may want to set up the correct aspect ratio of the Or...

Re: Manic Miner

I could not make it work on Oricutron yet. It keeps searching for the first block with the turbo-tape disabled (enabled it does not load anything).

Did not try with the latest version though.

Strange you could not produce a working tap file... makes me curious..

Re: Manic Miner

Nice! I could only try the cracked version, which had some corrupted graphics. Not sure if the image in oric.org is the cracked one, but if it is, I wonder if you could upload the original version (with the colour code card, that is).

Re: Oric 1 with messy video problem

If he is using a c64 cable, it is not compatible at all. Check: http://www.cbmitapages.it/tecnico/C64scart.gif Versus the Oric http://www.48katmos.freeuk.com/ports.htm And not only that, but the expected video signal is composite, not RGB. He could be feeding the blue channel as the composite video ...
