Re: New game project

Cool, sounds great - I'm a huge fan of new games for the Oric, so count me in as one of the crowd waiting in anticipation of your release! :)

Re: New game project

My machines have disk, I haven't used tape in a long time, except in Oricutron ..

Anyway hey - this New game looks amazing! Can you give us any more details? Its a platformer - cool! - but it looks a little Chucky Egg'ish. Is that the plan?

Re: New game project

Wow! Awesome! Re: background - I agree with Chema, keep things simple (black) at first, and then push AIC into good effect .. but honestly if I had to take just one out of the three, I'd go for #3 - it looks the neatest and gives me that old "I'm an Oric fanboix, and I can't help but be excited abou...

Cool thanks! We (me and the kids) are going to give this one a bash and review .. sweet!

(Is there anything better than discovering new software for the Oric?)

M.A.R.C. .. anyone got it?

I'm not sure of the policy regarding this kind of request - apologies in advance if this is inappropriate .. but, does anyone have a copy of M.A.R.C. they could upload to oric.org? I've been going through the database with the youngsters and this one is on their list of nice games to play "if they c...

Re: Downtime: Router upgrade

Nice one mate! Didn't even notice.

Wish there were some way to browse these forums on an actual Oric, lol. That might help with the bandwidth issue..

Re: Progress bar loading

This is an awesome little tool, and my only thought is how to set up Oricutron so it just loads it every time, so its standard on every .TAP load in my rig ..

Re: GlobalGameJam 2018

Well I for one got a lot of value out of this video .. seeing your workflow for OSDK is inspiring, and its nice to see someone who knows how to use Oricutrons debugger, putting it to use .. only thing is, use those Sublime hotkeys man! Hotkeys! :). The video would probably be 30 minutes shorter if y...

Re: Midi/Joystick interface?

Look for an Opto-isolator chip - the pics aren't clear enough for me to make them out, but maybe you can see them better Dbug? Those look like standard buffers, which would imply there's something UART'y going on, anyway. And if it is MIDI, I'd love to see you get it working - MIDI on Oric has alway...

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

Its totally strange how, seeing an Oric game reviewed in a magazine, takes me way .. way .. back in time. What an accomplishment, congratulations!

Re: Merging video output?

As someone with a small fleet of Atmos' sitting in their boxes, I'd personally love it if the result of this project would be some sort of PCB that could be used to connect real machines into a "Mega-Oric" .. taking into account that it would also be great to have an onboard mixer for the synth engi...

Re: Merging video output?

Whoa, that's cool - and a lot easier than I thought it would be. Nice work .. ;)

I guess its not too hard now to wire them up once the hardware design is somewhat settled?
