Re: JOric

Cool! Immediate reactions: If you had a recognition engine, it might actually be possible to obtain icons from somewhere, at least as a first suggestion? Maybe the first screenshot from the linked oric.org entry? I also have to admit to being vague on the Android user interface guidelines, but if yo...

Re: JOric

I don't really use either, but I have both a 2013 Nexus 7 and a Nexus 5X, should anything I could do with either be useful. Also I might still have BlueStacks installed on my older Mac, but quite possibly not. I seriously considered a Pixel C when it was heavily discounted but figured it'd just be o...

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

Time is very tight this week, but things worth saying immediately: in a case of accidental fuzz testing, I discovered that the WOZs produced by dsk2woz were truncating track bit count to produce the byte count (WOZ stores both) rather than rounding up. Which caused my emulator to perform an out-of-b...

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

Thanks for the small but very nice tool dsk2woz! I saw your announce on comp.sys.apple2 too :). It works well but ... back to Clock Signal - is currently Disk][ read-only or something with the write-protection switch is wrong? It was initially but that is supposed to be fixed. Well, partially fixed...

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

No, I've never implemented saved states; sometimes I oscillate between popping up a warning to the user that they should let me resave their work as WOZ/FDI/as relevant in order best to preserve their changes, but actually none of those quite fully captures exactly everything — e.g. both assume a co...

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

I am intrigued, why do you want to convert from DSK to WOZ if the emulator can read both? The case is simple: I have already DSK image with some DOS3.3/8D-DOS software and this software needs to write back to the same image something in non-standard format (for instance a nibbelized bit stream but ...

No trouble! Preservation and the fun therein is why communities like this exist.

Re: Paste from clipboard problem

Attached is: (i) the listing* (zipped); (ii) my attempt quickly to make a DSK of it. I get an out-of-memory error when running the DSK version, so something has gone awry. I need to run off to work now so I won't even take a moment to speculate. I'm sure somebody else will be able to produce a TAP o...

Re: Paste from clipboard problem

Is attaching files restricted until you have a certain post count perhaps? If you want to email it to me then it's the gmail account thomas.harte ; if you do so then I'll assume it's okay to attach here? The attached DSK has the first 38 lines transcribed, though I guess that's not so helpful on its...

Re: Paste from clipboard problem

Sorry for being a little vague about this; Oricutron doesn't actually work on my machine for reasons I've never bothered to diagnose because I'm the author of a different Oric emulator. Not for Windows, but I was thinking I could try my copy and paste solution, being a completely different implement...

Re: Paste from clipboard problem

I can't strongly comment as to Oricutron, but are you willing to supply the listing and/or WAV to allow investigation of potential other routes to conversion? Despite that proviso, I'm very confident that Oricutron is designed to load WAVs directly. Did you try loading without an attempt at using an...

Re: JOric

I don't know that it's helpful necessarily, but something surprising I learnt yesterday in my ongoing efforts in Apple II land: the most recent officially licensed Apple II clone was launched in 1996 (!), and as well as the stuff licensed from Apple it included a properly-licensed version of Microso...

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

The case is simple: I have already DSK image with some DOS3.3/8D-DOS software and this software needs to write back to the same image something in non-standard format (for instance a nibbelized bit stream but with custom address and data markers, or with custom number of sectors), so I need image f...

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

I can cobble together a DSK to WOZ converter from what's already in the emulator, though it might make sense to take a moment to simplify it a little. Apologies for NIB still being read-only, by the way; when I became aware of the Microdisc regression I just tied up some loose ends and released, and...

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

I've made a hasty new release to correct a regression in Microdisc support. Also included: initial write support from 8DOS to DSK and WOZ images. For the time being the whole emulation is a little slower in support of that whenever the 8DOS drive is being accessed, read or write, but I've a fix for ...
