Re: Space:1999 feedback and review thread

I will soon try to connect the 3" drive as a slave and copy all games to 3" disks. Thank you very much! I forgot to say: my Microdisc unit is a slave one, so t...

Re: Space:1999 feedback and review thread

Hi again. At last, I got myself a Microdisc and also a Cumana Expansion Box. The package hasn't arrived yet, but I'd like to know in advance, please, how to copy the Space: 1999 .DSK file onto an actual 3" floppy disc. May I use OmniFlop for that?

Thanks!

Re: Microdisc/Jasmin floppies work with 9x/XP/Vista/Seven !!

Do you guys know whether or not it's possible to use OmniFlop to convert .DSK images to actual floppies for using with the original Microdisc?

By the way, OmniFlop is awesome, I use it regularly for generating floppies for both an Amstrad CPC 6128 and an Acorn Archimedes.

:D

Indeed as Jede wrote you need to build it.
All the information was posted in the first message with a link to the board graphics, component list, etc...
Unfortunately, I'm not into Electronics.

Thanks, anyway!

Re: Space:1999 feedback and review thread

Hi! I'm Brazilian and totally new to the Oric. What is a Microdisk? Can't I play Space: 1999 without it? Thanks! On a real oric machine you need a Microdisc (it's one particular model of floppy disk drive for the Oric computers) If you have a PC (window, linux, ...) you can play the game using an O...
