Oric Atmos PSU Specs

Please can someone let me know the specs of a Oric Atmos PSU, as I need to buy a replacement and I do not have the one I was using anymore. I sent my Oric Atmos to someone to do a modification and he sent me back the Oric Atmos unmodified and missing the power supply and does not seem likely I will ...

Re: Tap files To files for Cumulas

With the release of the Cumulus (and no other similar device for Tape images) I am surprised no one has converted the majority of original games yet and made them available to use with the Cumulus. I have been waiting a while silently with the hope that it would just need some time for someone to d...

Re: Tap files To files for Cumulus

According to Steve M in his post he is saying that a lot of things have been already converted. If items have already been converted I am still wondering if it would just be a case of getting disks transferred and made available. Regarding the CEO disks and floppies is there a list of what is availa...

Re: Tap files To files for Cumulas

They aren't generally available. CEO has produced disks for years but you'll have to buy the disks. They are still going. People wanted the games in the original form so the uploads online were mostly tape images. I have boxes and boxes of 3" disks there's too many for me to convert - but it shows ...

Re: Disk Images with Tape Files

I am taking my modded Oric (With both Oric 1 and Oric ATMOS ROM) to an event this year with Cumulus and am still looking for some suitable and decent games to have on it at the event. Sadly I do not have time to convert games myself, but am hoping perhaps some people in the community would have alre...

Disk Images with Tape Files

I posted the request here: http://forum.defence-force.org/viewtopic.php?p=10904#p10904 But also thought I would a seperate thread. I am still looking for compilations of games or individual games that have been converted from TAP to DSK and preferably auto load or with Menu Loaders. I take machines ...

Re: Tap files To files for Cumulas

True it could be clearer, but the disk or tape icon give a hint (see "platform" line) EDIT: BTW Dominique's page is still there. It holds programs on disk, and even better, they were modified to work with the PASE joystick interface. http://dominique.pessan.pagesperso-orange.fr/oric/baton.htm Thank...

Re: Cumulus Issues

Thanks for the info. I am not getting a SEDORIC V3.0 screen appear, where running a DIR will make files on the disk appear, but the games are not autoloading like the pre-made disks I have already tried. Would I then have to type another command to load the game on the disk? Just to ask once again i...

Re: Cumulus Issues

I have just tried a larger PSU and it seems that was the issue. Thanks for the tip. The only other thing is I have noticed there seems to be a louder hum/buzz coming from my Orics speaker when the Cumulus is plugged in. Nothing too major, but still a tad annoying. The last problem I now have is that...

Oric-1/Atmos ROM Switch Information

On Wikipedia it reads: "A short time after the release of the Atmos machine, a modification for the Oric-1 was issued and advertised in magazines and bulletin boards. This modification enabled the Oric-1 user to add a second rom (containing the Oric Atmos system) to a spare rom socket on the Oric-1 ...

Re: Cumulus Preorder Thread

Whats happening?

AndyRCM has just posted pics on facebook showing they have received theirs.

I am one down in the list, yet I have not had a PM or message or head anything yet.

Is this special treatment for the select few, getting theirs before the others or have I missed something?
