Re: JOric

In my opinion it is a good idea to always keep the original Oric aspect ratio (with its rectangular pixels) or, at least, a perfect squared pixel. But stretching the image without keeping the aspect ratio would look horrible, I think. I'd prefer to have the widest screen possible, correct aspect rat...

Re: oric atmos boot stuck at AA pattern

"Powering up (initialization) faults If after powering up, the screen is covered with black horizontal bars or random patterns, this indicates that the contents of the ROM (language interpreter and operating system) have not been correctly loaded into DRAM." I would really want more details on this...

Re: JOric

I don't know why I did not notice the first part of your previous answer. Sorry. Yes I am quite a fan of adventure games, both graphic and text :) It is nice to see that you are also interested in how they were programmed, because that search was what set me into creating my engine :D Back to this i...

Re: JOric

That is in the intro probably just when starting music. Strange. I wil take a look at the sources.

Re: Microdisc connectors

Hehe thanks for clarifying everything iss! Yes, as I suspected after reading the manual the original Microdisc did not power the Oric though the expansion port. Wonder why not. I guess Silicebit just made the clone, then realized it could be possible so he added the jumper, just in case there was so...

Re: oric atmos boot stuck at AA pattern

To me that looks as when the memory is filled for testing just before booting, but I am not sure.

Did you check the memories to see if any chip gets too hot?

The noise and ""click" from relay" when starting is something strange... that does not happen in my Oric.

Re: Microdisc connectors

+1 to what Laurent said. I don't know about any 3" disk which does not need 12V. Some old 3.5" disks also need 12V for the motor, but only really old ones. The controller could power the Oric through the expansion bus... Not sure if the original did this, but if it did it is much better as your Oric...

Re: Experimental very fast tape loading

Just wanted to pop in to express how impressed I am with your work!

When I saw the video I could hardly believe it was loading Xenon1 so quickly... Unbelievable! And now even faster. :shock:
