Re: Help with two Orics

Welcome, protek! I would start with the first one (which has sockets) - at least good text chars are visible. I tried my crystal ball but no insights... ;) Can you post pictures of the PCB and your power adapter (mainly its label with data about voltage and current). You measured 5V line and it's go...

Re: Orikai

The Orikai.exe is 32 bit, so you need the 32-bit dll. Try with the attached one.

EDIT: Unpack it in the same folder where Orikai.exe is stored.

Re: Experimental very fast tape loading

Quick news if I type HIRES:POKE#21F,0:CLOAD"" then voilier_std_1.1g.wav works! Of course the hires screen has 'Searching...' just like ROM v.1.0 error :). I'll check what exactly the routine 'PrintSearching' at $E57D do... BTW, both loaders (f16 and std) are exactly the same, right? EDIT: The only s...

Re: Oric Tshirts

About the logo I think it really looks very similar to the one you designed Chema, but the letter 'R' is kind a different.
Else for me the Oric Atmos picture is definitely this one: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oric_Atmos.

Re: Experimental very fast tape loading

(no other emulator that I know of accept such special WAV files + have a monitor) Oricutron accepts WAV's, has monitor+debugger and works with your latest ship_novalight_1.1g.zip . :) What is interesting voilier_F16_1.1g.wav works fine, but with voilier_std_1.1g.wav loading works by me only if I di...

Re: Microdisc in ebay

Yep, it's nice. The price still acceptable but who knows how high it can jump... One thing I really can recommend: the seller is very nice and correct! I already bough from her lot Oric stuff and everything is perfect, well packaged and send on time. Other interesting thing in her store is brand new...

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

I am intrigued, why do you want to convert from DSK to WOZ if the emulator can read both? The case is simple: I have already DSK image with some DOS3.3/8D-DOS software and this software needs to write back to the same image something in non-standard format (for instance a nibbelized bit stream but ...

Re: Clock Signal — an Oric emulator for macOS and Linux

Great! I've tested it and it seams to work (slower than real hardware but it's OK for now :)). BTW, WOZ format is good thing too, I've downloaded tons of images but I didn't find an actual converter DSK->WOZ, do you have such one? It would be perfect to have sources so I can compile and use it under...

Re: Pravetz 8D: loading tapes?

No hurry, take your time. :) Else the chip 1ЛБ00ШМ is equal to 74LS00 and it's on your PCB because you have ROM split in 2x8k PROMs (2x7864) by me it's only one PROM and the 74LS00 is not needed. I'll try to make my board as yours with the same PROMs and will check how tape loading is working. When ...

Re: Pravetz 8D: loading tapes?

Very interesting exemplar! I think it's one from the latest produced - they were without RF modulator and your's is without the PAL encoder chips. Else nothing suspicious in the hardware.
Can you only check the resistor matrix (the red rectangle) if it has "10k" label?

Re: Pravetz 8D: loading tapes?

...This was fixed in a later ROM 1.1 version... ... and this shows exactly the moment when Pravetz was stolen! :D Here is how the analog part looks by me: P8D.jpg An easy test can be if the ROM is on socket to change it with normal Atmos ROM and check how loading works. I'll do this test asap and w...

Re: Pravetz 8D: loading tapes?

Hi, Symoon, Is there a specific tape format for the Pravetz? Definitely there should be NO difference in tape data format. From what I remember Pravetz-8D was 'famous' with its bad tape input - permanent 'ERROR FOUND' :evil:. And when I found the Oric resources on the web around 2010, I was really s...

Re: INSERT MASTER DISC IN DRIVE A

Well, attached you can find archive with: - 'sedoric3.h' - patched as per PATCH.001, only chunk 1 and 2 are changed, because 3 is not necessary IMO. Use this file to replace in OSDK - public/pc/tools/osdk/main/tap2dsk/sources/sedoric3.h and rebuild tap2dsk tool. You can check differences with any co...
