Re: List of official Oric software & games

The listings on Oric.org are pretty complete, although there are a lot of things in there that collectors won't find anywhere else ..

Re: eBay game prices

I've been following the prices of things in Oric- (and other retro-) land for a while, and in my opinion - in the last year or so - there has been a massive rise in speculators joining the scene. I blame social media and all the retro- youtube channels, as well as /r/retrobattlestations and /r/retro...

Re: I2C for the Oric

8-bit Unity has a multiplayer module and I believe 8-bit Dude is planning on a hardware release alongside that allows 4 people to play against each other - when you get multiplayer up and running over WiFi, it'll be an almost sure thing that support for this will be added to 8-bit Unity itself, imho...

Re: Best Newbie Book for Learning Basic on Oric Atmos?

I find the best thing to do is break into a massive .TAP collection and use Oricutron to print sources, say to a local repo, and read the code from there - some cool BASIC stuff has a bit of assembly, e.g. for scrolling or sounds, and if you spend a bit of time browsing .TAP's, you can get a pretty ...

Re: My new Cumana drive ;)

Doesn't have to be below the Oric - could also be behind it, as in a box which extends the length of the Oric, not the height or width .. anyway, will play with some ideas ..

Re: My new Cumana drive ;)

I've been fantasising of modelling an expansion bay style enclosure that can accommodate the Atmos/Oric by just sliding it on to the base, so there'd be a box under the Oric for the PCB's and relevant ports for USB receptacles, etc. I'm kind of fatigued by the cable mess of my Oric setup and would l...
