How do you take a screenshot in Oricutron?

Re: IOUG

Personally I would leave the names and remove the addresses. There is an OUM contact list if people wanted to try contacting someone. The issue with leaving old addresses is that personal info can be used for identity theft which wasn't really a great issue when these mags were published. Rhetoric h...

Re: IOUG

I think with new data protection laws it may be a bit of a tricky issue. I guess people were OK publishing their details in a mag distributed to a small group but it's a different thing publishing online. I guess the options are to blur such information - how big a job would that be? Or it could be ...

Re: IOUG

No, I don't think so. I was meaning to scan some but all mine were put in a ring binder so have holes through the text. There's quite a lot of pages to scan, so it'd take a while. Also, I think I'm missing a few issues.
I've no time just now, so it'd be good if someone can get their scanner running!

Re: SedOric-3 and INIT command

I don't think this happens on a real disk system. So maybe it is something to do with the Gotek?

Try setting the drives with DTRACK and then just INITB. (If I've remember the right command.)
Check the configuration with DSYS.

Re: EAD65C and MINITEXT Manuals

I've already scanned Minitext and EAD65C manuals.
I'm not sure if they've been put online yet but check Oric-org and the CEO for such things.

No idea, but you may want to fix the post title, is it "gotel" or "gotek" ?
Sorry - my keyboard is so old it has a lot of the letters worn off. It doesn't help that my typing is crap!

Re: Gotek USB floppy emulator

Thanks for the info. So can you write files to the floppy emulator and then convert them back to Oric /dsk images ? This is the one I was looking at. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SFR1M44-U100-Normal-version-3-5-Inch-1-44MB-USB-SSD-FLOPPY-DRIVE-EMULATOR-GOTEK/332661992821?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&...

Gotek USB floppy emulator

Us anyone using one of these Gotek drives with the Oric?

I'm wondering if they are worth buying adn if they will work OK with Oric Dsk images or if the files have to be converted like I think the Hxc floppy emulator requires. (If I've got the name right.)

Any info on these?

what would be cool is to get PDF versions of the 25 issues of Rhetoric (specially now that the old site seems to be gone?) as well as Oric User Monthly.
They've been scanned but still need the censor to look at them.

Re: Twilighte's IM music

It's a curious problem. I would guess 6522 issue (?) Does it work with other samples - Soundtracker or Rhetoric disks, for example? Is it working from disk? Sometimes you get odd problems like tape not loading when disk drive is in. I wasn't sure at first what IM Music was so never got round to tryi...

Re: oric advanced user guide is still available

That's pretty cool - I like the colours. He doesn't seem to credit Lecester Wheywell, but I may have missed something. It makes the scanning of the rest a lot more feasible. Not sure if what I wrote 20 or so years ago still holds. Back then most people using the Oric had a disk system up and running...

Re: Microdisc connectors

I was wondering what amps the 9v Microdisc supply puts out? I'm guessing the Oric needs a bit more with the drives connected (?) (I don't think it says on the label.) My plan is to produce cables for a power supply I have that powers two floppies. Then have this and the Atmos power supply on an exte...
