jasmin problem

Hi there Sorry for the dumb question (I never saw a Jasmin drive), is it using 3'' disks? Yes. Maybe the disk is damaged . If it uses 3.5'' you can try writedsk or something similar and boot from a freshly created disk and maybe Sedoric 3.0 (which does not ensure it will work, anyway). Sedoric will ...

oric on a chip

hi there,

Torlus has an oric-on-a-chip design in the pipes (well one of the numerous pipes since he's working on a lot of projects). He told me he had "just" to add VIA and I don't remember what else (but ula is done).

oric

Hi there, As said before, the spectrum was the easiest since the first images of spectrum softwares were snapshots of the memory with the game loaded so petra's first CFcard for spectrum (ide indeed) was in fact based on a rom improvement and a few chips only. Ok for the oric it's a bit harder but c...

Hi there,

oric

Hi there, Well I've been using oric computers (UK or french ones, 1es or atmoses ;) ) on a a whole bunch of different monitors (microvitec, oscar, commodore 1084, philips) and TVs (sony, philips, orion, and other brands, some with autocommuting others with manual commuting) without any problems. As ...

oric

Hi, Have you tried to connect your oric to the Joytech? I've been reading the manual of your monitor and it should be ok. Use the sys button to choose between ntsc/pal and the input selection (the one next to the sys button) to cycle through RGB/composite/svideo. You don't care about the commute stu...

lcd screen

hi there, I don't know about the difference in terms of level between french and non french oric. If you're talking about the "commuting" stuff, when you plug the oric the TV knows it's rgb signal because it receives some voltage on a given pinout there's no need here. In fact it's a composite only ...

rgb lcd screen

Hi there,

You can easily modify a basic composite playstation mini lcd-screen to plug your RGB oric on it. I've explained how to mod the bigben model here (in french sorry) :

disk

hi there, Yes that's what Torlus has in the pipes. Well as a side project since he's now working on a "universal USB flash cart programmer" for various video game systems (now working on snes, vcs2600, nec pcengine...) When he said that having a standalone without controller system for the oric Jeff...

floppy emulator

hi there, Been to a retro-geek meeting this weekend. I had to bring an oric+microdisk controller so that Jeff could work on the oric floppy emulator. The bad news was that what he had been working on without controller failed to work on the real one on Friday night. He then promised me it would work...

hi

Hi,

I wrote this article for old-computers.com when they launched the new version a few years ago. The webmasters were looking for some content (technical and meeting stuff). I also added a 3.5 inch floppy to my microdisk unit (as master drive keeping the 3inch drive as B-drive).

hi there, btw I tanced Jeff a little about his ongoing work on atari st/amiga/amstrad cpc floppy disk emulator (HxC Floppy Drive Emulator) and he decided to have a look on an oric version. He has been working on it and seems to have some results. I now need to see him to give him a microdisk unit so...
