By POKING in the area #B400 to #B800 you can easily redefine the characters to look better. If you want to fill the character A (ASCII code 65) as a square pattern, you can just do that way: POKE #B400+(8*65)+0,1+2+4+8+16+32 POKE #B400+(8*65)+1,1+32 POKE #B400+(8*65)+2,1+32 POKE #B400+(8*65)+3,1+32...

List of Oric software

Is there a list of every commercially released tape and/or disk for the Oric, and if so, where can I find one? I think it'd be interesting to compile a list if there isn't one already.

GoSub for Oric

Control the submarine "=" by the arrow keys while avoiding the octopus "M" and the walls "-". Download the first version http://www.atari2600land.com/oric/gosuboric.tap . And a quick question: How big in Ks can an Oric tape be? Because I was going to design several more levels than just this one tha...

Well, the only thing I'm using OSDK for right now is the bas2tap program that came with it. I need to delve deeper into it to see what else it does. I downloaded it when I first got into Oric BASIC programming and forgot about the Oric when I was programming 2600 games using batari Basic. To get a ....

Thank you for the information. I already downloaded OSDK (that's where I got the Tap2Bas program.)

Problem with Bas2Tap

The problem is I can't figure out how to use it. I can't seem to figure out what the heck to do. I open it, and as soon as I type something in it, it closes! For more information on my problem, visit my topic in the AtariAge forums:

I think the Minigame Compo people want an .asm file in the zip file you submit. This game was done in BASIC, so I don't know how to go about doing that.

I'm hoping to get Puck-Man 2k on before 8/31. All I need to do is figure out how to get an .ASM file out of a .tap file. How do I go about doing that? And apparently, this will be the only Oric game in the compo this year?

Plotting variables

Let's say I have this:
L=L+1
IF L=60 THEN L=0 : N=N+1
GOTO 105

How would I make it so it puts the value of N in this:
PLOT 1,1,"TIME:";N
I tried this, but it wouldn't work.

My first game

This is just a warm-up to see what I can do in Oric. This is after a couple days of studying the manual and applying what I've learned in Batari Basic to Oric Basic.

BTW, is there a way to get rid of the blinking cursor in the corner?

It's interesting that the Oric manual would have a typo. Also interesting is how a simple closed parenthesis would make a computer not behave the way it's supposed to. That fixed my problem. Thanks Pengwin.

Which operating system do you use ? I guess I should reformulate the way it's written, but if you read the note after in the installation page, it says also that in Windows 2000/XP/later you can set the environment variable in some other way. I have Windows XP, but I tried to set the environment va...
