Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

I see Dbug has answered some questions already :) I don't have problems with people asking for help to other users, on the contrary, it would be nice, as long as you don't spoil the game to others. I guess that "anybody managed to pass through the service door? I'm stuck!" is okay and people may ans...

Re: Oricutron 1.0 (EDIT: Now 1.2)

The only way to get screenshot is using the print screen function from the operating system. Remember to reduce the zoom of the emulator display because it is by default set to x2.

In fact i'm not sure this is possible.

Re: Question regarding floppies

Hi Steve. My question, as Dbug clarified, is about how many 3" FDDs were double sided. I thought nearly no one, but I was obviously wrong! So I might release the game in an image with a geometry of 40 tracks, so you can use both kind of disks... And now that I mention it, would that work for 5.25 fl...

Re: SVN server problems

No. I guess that is because I never created a repository for this project....

Does it make sense?

Re: SVN server problems

I cannot make it work... I am a disaster :)

I right click on my sources folder, select TortoiseSVN->Import... Select the path to the correct folder in the dialog and I get this error:

Re: Question regarding floppies

I will burn in Hell for not being able to ask a simple question without setting a context in which you could mistakenly answer the opposite of what you meant. I am asking if your drive was/is double sided, so a Yes means it was and you didn't have to flip the disk to access side B. Well, after all I...

Question regarding floppies

In order to decide if my new game Blake's 7 will support 3" disks, I need to know if most of the Oric 3" disk drives were single sided (you had to manually flip the disc to get to the other side, such as with Amstrad computers) or not (they had two heads). Please answer the poll and/or leave any com...

Re: Development of Blake's 7 (was OASIS development)

Already fixed 25 bugs from the beta testing process... and it is not finished yet!

Problem is every time I fix one, I put two more inside the game!

Almost there... almost there...

Re: Development of Blake's 7 (was OASIS development)

I was thinking of come thing along that line, Symoon. You give the parameters and run a tool which reads/writes. In fact, if you don't know the format and being quite ignorant about these thing, isn't it possible to simply do something such as : - start with track 0 and read sectors until,the operat...

Re: Development of Blake's 7 (was OASIS development)

Thanks iss, I will have a look asap. I think the problem was I was not setting up the VIA properly. That bit should be included in the wiki... Or maybe I just missed it :) And yeah, Symoon, I remember. So there is no way to make a copy of a protected disk or disks with unusual structures.... That is...
