Re: Microdisc controller + Amplibus, do you want another batch?

I really recommend anyone owning an Oric to get one of this controllers. It is a unique opportunity and the machine changes completely.

Re: OASIS development

Still designing rooms and polishing puzzles.

Developing pace is slow, but it keeps going.

Sometimes you end up with a nice design but no puzzle for it. Usually I discard the room, but in this case I think I'll make an exception :twisted:

Re: Searching for Krystal Worlds (edited by OUM)

For what I read, it was the precession of PAWS (Professional Adventure Writing System) which incidentally I used on the Spectrum :D If shares some concepts, and I agree it was a fantastic piece of software, very easy to use and quite powerful for the day! Did not know it existed for the Oric... Does...

Ah, the name rings a bell! But why wouldn't those games be transferred to tap or dsk?

Re: Searching for Krystal Worlds (edited by OUM)

@coco.oric Ah, too bad. I think this one is a real Missing In Action.

@robcook sorry for the silly question but what does "Quilled" mean? Which other Oric games were "quilled"? :?:

Yes, I also read that information somewhere, MrM. Nice to hear from somebody who actually uses a lower voltage.

Re: Searching for Krystal Worlds (edited by OUM)

Never heard of that one. Maybe released too late, when there was no more information or news about the computer here in Spain.

I already mentioned it, I think, but I once saw an educational software called Quimioric or Quimoric. Does anybody remember it?

This one is good quality and 2A so it should suit the needs https://www.micomputer.es/en/oric/149-o ... upply.html

It's not expensive either.

Re: OASIS development

Weird, I don't have problems with magenta on the real Oric, but I do with red. Anyway I'll have a look. Ah, and well spotted! The patch changes eye when the character is drawn looking left, as I am mirroring the graphic. I might ask the designer to change it, because Travis usually appears looking l...

Re: OASIS development

Hi guys! In case you were wondering, though I had very little spare time lately, development has continued. I am currently working on Episode 3, and I have almost all the plot and I started with the room design. I also made the intro to the episode. Here it is: https://youtu.be/SSJUDZ9_hAg I have pr...

Re: Replacement rubber "feet"

I cannot tell if there are exact replacements, but I'd ask in a specialized shop. Round rubber feet are quite common and you can probably find one that fits well enough. In the worst case you can replace the whole four. An example (not sure about size) https://www.ebay.com.au/p/Furniture-Round-7mmx2...
