Really nice job, I've enjoyed play-testing this game in the last few weeks .. although I didn't find many bugs, I really had a blast getting through the levels. My 3yr old son also loves this game, he calls it the "blue bubbles game" because he got mostly interested in it while I was cursing trying ...

What about adding an audible indicator that a ship has hyperspaced - so it could be used to indicate hyperspace wherever it happens, even under non-battle conditions .. ?

Okay .. one thing I've noticed in last nights testing was that it appears that occasionally I would shoot a ship and it would just disappear! This happened twice in one game .. I wasn't able to work out what was going on, however, it just seems like as soon as I started to shoot, the ship disappeare...

I've been playing it but I'm too busy to report anything, and besides .. I've been *playing* it and not really noticing any bugs or anything yet. I *LOVE* it! :) Where were you in 1984 when I sat in front of my Oric-1 many nights, in despair at my neighbors growing software collection for his Specci...

Its quite do'able, but a little difficult - Oricutron would have to be turned into a library, and a GUI client app, written in Java, could be written to drive the library .. I am also doing some Android hacking so I will look at this in the next few weeks if you like .. but I agree that the Android ...

I hope I can get the time to do a demo video of the Pandora soon, so you guys can see how cool it is to have a mini-Atmos in your hands! :)

Yes, I will do that Xeron .. that way it can just be another target architecture .. the only issue is that there is a custom build step for the Pandora (should be no problems, its just a packaging thing) and I might have to add some custom code for the Pandora controls to be re-configurable .. I spe...

If you could send it to me, that would be very useful - I don't really want to get into a lot of hacking of tap2dsk right now, I just want to use it under Linux to convert some TAPs to DSK files for use in PandOricutron .. Maybe you could just PM it to me, or send it to me by email - my email addres...

Every time I see these new graphics styles I just can't believe its an Oric screen I'm looking at! :) I played a few hours of Pulsoids last night, on the Pandora build of Oricutron .. simply rocks to have such quality software on the Oric platform at last. Just wanted to let you guys know: you are s...
