Re: Dead oric 1

>give things amps

Yeah, I clearly meant "give the Oric a power supply that doesn't cry over how many amps it draws", but .. whatever.

Re: Dead oric 1

>I propose to put the multimeter in ammeter option in your power line positive. It should read around 700-800 mA (less than 1 Amp). Follow this advice from Voyageur! FWIW, I've had a few Oric's that I thought were dead, only to find out that I wasn't giving them enough amps in the power supply... it...

Re: OricExos - making the impossible

So how are the audio signals going to be handled - summed? I could imagine a 4-voice polyphonic Oric synth with summed signals might have some distortion/drive issues, or at least .. I'd hope that would be the case.. ;) Can't wait to see more demos of Exos! Every time there's news, I think of the ef...

Re: OricExos - making the impossible

>Software programmable volume for each chip is fine, that would even allow things like cross fading between the chips, what I'm against is user selectable mixing using actual physical controls. Sorry for the confusion - I am actually *pro-* having actual physical controls, but this is because I'm a ...

I'd set the levels of each Oric according to my needs as a musician according to the composition. >I can see how having a user selectable global volume would be useful, but a user selectable mixing would be a headache for the programmer A) I wasn't aware you're planning...

Re: OricExos - making the impossible

All 4 sound output are "as is" - standalone without mixing. The 4 speakers will be attached with wires and proper connectors to every board (next to the purple/white wires which connect the master reset button on the picture). If anyone has an idea for something better - now is the right time to sh...

I want this so bad it hurts. Lets turn this system into a multi-timbral polyphonic synthesiser! :)

Re: Game Release: 8bit-Slicks Online Racer for Apple, Atari, C64 (Atmos Next!!!)

I imagine a case you can just 'clip' onto the back of an Oric/Atmos, which sort of closes the legacy ports off and exposes only the now-gen stuff ..

Re: Networking Orics.

Whoa, I would love to have the gumption to jump on this, but I'd kinda rather build my own .. will you be making this closed/open, design-wise?

Re: ORIC SDCARD

Would be good to get this sorted out - I'll commit to at least 5 of these boards, out of the batch .. and am willing to finance more if there is interest and we might get them distributed, over time, to other Oric users.

Re: ORIC SDCARD

I really want to make one of these ORIC SDCARD projects - anyone else interested? I think we can (affordably) do a small production run of PCB's if we get enough interest ..

Re: Networking Orics.

This is a great project and its sure going to be exciting to see its use in multiplayer gaming! :). But personally, I prefer WiFi. I don't have another Ethernet port available.. and my other retro machines have boards that allow easy to use WiFi too .. (e.g. M4 Board) .. come to think of it, maybe i...

Re: CC65 to DSK

Looks pretty good to this old Oric fans eyes .. but I wonder if you wouldn't get better results if you used AIC for the sprites themselves - looks like right now you're drawing new attributes with each sprite and getting the attribute clash, but if you were to use the AIC bit on the sprites, perhaps...
