Re: Do you remember "Oric Raid?"

In fact, SWIV is one of my favourite bits of Oric code to read. Twi was such a genius.

Maybe we should try to finish it?

Re: Game Instructions

I agree.. perhaps the existing admins would consider making a complete torrent of the entire archive of media .. ?

Wonderful, you're producing AAA games quicker than i can produce the ceo-mag.

What a great time to be alive as an Oric user. What'll you do when there's more games than you can review, from more programmers .. ? (Hire more reviewers, ;)

Re: My new Cumana drive ;)

After a few weeks, I'd really like to replace the LCD display .. anyone done that yet? I find the current one very unusable.

Re: Oriclopedia: A series of videos on all things Oric

Great video - might've also been of use to discuss TapOric?

Re: I2C for the Oric

Cool! Be sure to dig into the library manager .. lots of stuff in there that could make the journey to get the Oric on the Internet a little easier ..

Re: I2C for the Oric

Pretty soon I'm going to give this a try - but I'll use the PlatformIO IDE. Heard of it yet? Its a lot more useful than Arduino, and compatible with it also ..

I use this to do my development work on the MS3000 project ..

Re: Painting in Coloric Ascii Art

Very nice! Culling in the demo was very nice to see.

I imagine with a slightly tweaked CHARSET and maybe using only a quarter of the screen, some pretty performant effects could be had. BATTLEZONE Oric sure seems incoming..

Re: My new Cumana drive ;)

Some critical observations offered in support of this great device, after a couple of days of use .. 1) Is it just me, or does the Cumana Reborn seem to slow some titles down? I've got both Cumulus and Cumana Reborn devices locally, and games such as Krillys and Defender Force definitely feels slowe...

Re: I2C for the Oric

Oh, I completely missed its a printer-based device. Makes much more sense. >I think these are exciting times. If back in the 80's someone had told me that one day I could load anything from anywhere with my Oric I would have laughed. Very definitely agree with you here. I mean, we're putting Oric's ...

Re: I2C for the Oric

Wow, nice work! Yeah, its a long shot, but I need to ask - is there any opportunity for us to add this hardware feature to the Cumana Reborn, by any chance? Maybe there's a spare pin onboard that could be used? I can only imagine how cool it'd be to have a Cumana with WiFi capabilities ..

Re: Tendre Poulet - used AIC?

Great explanation, thanks .. and you're right, I probably could've just stepped into the debugger, but I guess it was a mater of natural (local) circumstances prec-loo-ding the effort. ;)
