Re: HIRESMAN

Thanks Symoon - that is very interesting, and in fact quite topical as it seems Twilighte has implemented a few of the things I'm trying to do with my Oric project .. so as always, so much to learn from the master.

Re: The Graphic Suite

Has anyone ended up doing something with this recently? I'm continuing my effort to understand and become competent with native-Oric tools for doing things like graphics (and sound) editing, and so .. I'm unpacking TGS and reading the docs. Would love to know if anyone else has come very far with us...

Re: Microdisc in ebay

I'm lusting for it. All you other guys can sod off! Its mine, I tell you! :). Even though I have Cumulus drives and a working Cumana-based drive, I still want an original micro disc for my collection. (For me it'd be double useful, since I have an Amstrad now and could use the 3" disc collection for...

Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

I'm kind of keen on the idea of doing a compositor .. something that takes a smaller image file and blits it over the top of a larger image file - but of course I have no clue how to estimate the effort required to implement this ... just a huge interest in how you'd do it, in BASIC, fulfilling the ...

Re: OType

Definitely, Chema - those colours and the sprites and the scrolling in general just fill me with wonder at what could have been, had we had Twi's genius back in the day, showing the world what the Oric could do... I'm still struck with awe that this is an Oric demo - it just doesn't connect, in my m...

Re: Orikai

Wow, this is great - and precisely what I need to continue my hacking on my Oric projects .. what a pity I don't have a Windows machine handy to run it though .. time to set up that VM.

Re: OType

I've been reading the sources for OType this past week, but I'm really struggling with a few things .. Twi really was in a league of his own when it came to these titles. So much to learn ..

Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

Not worth it to just add another frame to the resources - I guess this is what you mean by not wanting to fill the disk with too many files?

Its an interesting conundrum, anyway - probably the last bit of polish for a very nice project, anyway ..

Re: Upgrade Time: Encounter

Great! Looking very tight and smooth .. just wondering, are you planning on adding 'objects' to the graphics - like, when you see a CUE its there on the table, and then when you take it, it disappears? I'm guessing you're saving this for last, since it requires a bit of graphics tweaking .. Very exc...

Very unknown system around these parts! Also brought along the new Twilight...
