Re: Oric-1 Sound Mod HELP !

Despite the drilling of an Oric case (something I will never get used to), I find your solution really nice. Congrats!

Re: OricExos - making the impossible

The retro computing group I mostly participate in (here in Spain) seems to have the war between Atari ST and Amiga settled. Everyone now enjoys both machines, and has allied to fight a common enemy: the PC :lol: I must say I recently got my hands on an Amiga 500 and I was completely surprised with w...

Maybe it should just be put in a transparent case, with some blinking things :)

Re: Microdisc connectors

Indeed! I don't know why the Telestrat needs the -12, I suppose for the RS-232 port (which uses -12 volt to signal logical 1, IIRC).

You lost me waaaay back in this thread, but I wanted to say that you are doing an impressive and unbelievable work here... almost black magic.

Re: Microdisc connectors

I am quite sure the +12 and +5 cables where switched. Silicebit's clone had he Molex connector plugged under the board to allow direct plug of a PC power source (avoiding confusions). That being said, I am almost also sure you don't need +12v with Gotex/HxC or modern FDDs (3.5). The motor of an olde...

I am quite sure I emailed you for some ICs and we even exchanged a few emails, but never got them... Probably I misunderstood something?

Re: A new well-known compiler

I did not want to start a debate, really. I find them fun and an opportunity to learn a lot (and I am always curious and willing to learn from others). I understand that you want a decent C compiler so you can test things, maybe mix with asm... It is perfectly OK and I understand that. lcc65 is crap...

Re: Novalight - very fast tape loading

Impressive work indeed! A great achievement.

I must find a way to make audio loads again on my Atmos, because I lost the laptop which was really reliable and couldn't find a way to make turbo loads work again :(

Re: Oric Speech Synthesizer + Cumulus/Microdisk

Oh, I see... I always thought that R/W was only set in the period Phi2 was high, while the ULA accessed the RAM when it was low (or was it the other way around?), but it seems that indeed the state of Phi2 must be taken into account too. Okay, I always loved hardware but always also sucked at it and...
